I’ve talked about my love of literary Alpha males before. This post by Kat is fabulous! My favorite Alpha males in books? Gabriel Emerson, Christian Grey, Gideon Cross, and Jericho Barrons.

Talk To The Shoe

The Lure of the Great Alpha Male

© 2012 by Kat Bastion

We all want him.  Not just any alpha male.  
We all want the Great Alpha Male.

The Alpha Male…

An alpha doesn’t walk into a room.  He commands it.  Without effort, he could defeat every male there.  The intangible vibe pouring off those broad shoulders announces the danger louder than a bull horn.  Every other wise man in the room heeds the warning.

Every single woman responds to the dominant presence.  Instinctually.

Something primal takes over.

Our hair gets fluffed without thought.

Perfectly glossed lips get licked.

Shirts are pulled down lower, chests stuck out further, hips swayed another degree right and left in an unconscious effort to gain the spectacular male’s notice.

The mating dance has begun. 
He surveys the group of potential females. 

Each woman hopes for a chance to be the one…
The female above all…

Fantasy Date Poll Results…

***UPDATE at the end of the post***

I’ve left the fantasy date poll up for almost a week so let’s see how you voted…

Your number one choice as my fantasy date is…*drum roll please*…

Gabriel Emerson…Ah… the sensual Professor…great choice ladies. He captured 36% of the total. There were a few days when Barrons held the lead but in the end…

Coming in at a very close second is Jericho Barrons with 33%

Christian Grey managed 16%

Dominic Grayson, Bones, and Matthew de Clairmont each received 3 1/3%

The choice for All of them got 4%

As for who you want to write these…this was a surprise for me to be honest…

39% of you would like to see a collaboration between the author and myself

31% want the author to write it

24% want me to do it

4% think Shari should do it

2% want anyone who is willing to do it. Clearly you want these posts to happen and ur not picky about who does the writing as long as it gets done 😉

A reminder…I said when I published the poll that I can’t guarantee that any of the authors will have a whit of  interest in this at all… in either collaborating with me, or in writing it on their own. All I can do is ask nicely.

Please do not ask or badger any of the authors yourselves.

Thanks to everyone who voted…look for some fantasy date posts down the road…wish me luck 🙂

UPDATE…SR has offered to write it! Do you have any idea how happy and excited I am about this?!?…

OMG! I’m bouncing off the walls…fell out of my chair (for realz) excited!I of course accepted…well duh right?!?

Thank you SR! A gazillion, million thank yous…and erm…huge hugs 🙂

OK I’m off to try and calm down…fat chance…and have a celebratory drink or two…hmmm…I totes need some champagne for this…

This and That…

Today I wanted to discuss and share  a little of this and that…some quickie thoughts if u will. Altho I must confess I don’t normally advocate for quickies…sometimes a quickie is just what you need…for the moment 😉

Titles – When I first started doing reviews and other posts one of the hardest things for me to do was come up with a title. I knew I wanted it to be something catchy, and I wanted it to be something that would make people want to read whatever it was. Reviews don’t really lend themselves to that however, unless I want to make it so long it takes up 2 lines…Problem with that is I never liked how it looked at the top of the post. A secondary problem is that it makes the link sooooooooooooo long. I kind of gave up being creative on that, and pretty much just stick with the standard book blogger format, boring tho it may be.

Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning

  I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get
married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered
that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an
ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae.
Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the
sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.
When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over
to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I’ve learned
about myself, I know I have the power to get it….
MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed
on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and
ancient secrets.
In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh-a million-year-old
book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both
the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by
mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between
two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn
sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable
Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.
For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans.
Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that
stands between them….

Bloodfever is the 2nd book in the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning.
