|Hugh as Leopold in KATE AND LEOPOLD|
Hugh Jackman, actor, sexy man extraordinaire, plays Alpha Males so well that even if we were to discover he wasn't one in real life, we wouldn't care. I once heard him tell a story about how he peed himself on stage and he laughed happily which told me - yes, this man is exceptional and a true Alpha Male.
Alpha Males may have HUGE egos but they also have humility and so are able to laugh at themselves as easily at the world. A sense of humor is essential to winning a woman's heart and he is able to with such ease that other men probably can't comprehend how he does it.
|Hugh as Drover in AUSTRALIA|
Now, in Romance Novels, Alpha Male heroes take many shapes ... we've got the types like the splendid devilish Regency Lord such as Leopold above, or the rough tough cattle driving Drover but then there's some of my personal favorites, the shape shifters. Come on ladies, you have to admit there's nothing like the animal that lives within every Alpha Male! Hugh does this one to the hilt!!! You've got it, WOLVERINE! [sigh] Give me a minute.
When I think of Wolverine, I think of all the lovely shape shifters in the paranormal romance genre. By the way, if you haven't discovered these delectable, sexy, dream worthy heroes, please do, I wouldn't want you to miss out on some of the best reading ever!
One of my favorite series featuring shape shifters of all sorts is Pamela Palmer's Feral Warrior series. And my dears, I have an extra copy of her PASSION UNTAMED to give away today.
I promised I'd make up for Monday's mishap and I believe you will enjoy this taste of the paranormal.
There are currently six books in the series and the seventh (Fox's story) will be released in Dec 2012, I hope because I might just keel over if it's late.
PASSION UNTAMED is the third book in the series and although I do recommend you read the series in order starting with Lyon's story in DESIRE UNTAMED, I'm giving away this one because it's the one starring THE Alpha Male of the series. Oh, Lyon may be the Chief of the Ferals and a lion shape shifter but it's PAENTHER who is the oldest of the Ferals and, in my opinon, the most virile, the most male, and certainly, the most ALPHA.
Though the Mage witch Skye has a gentle heart, demonic forces have enslaved her, forcing her to kidnap Paenther, a powerful and dangerous Feral Warrior. Even chained and naked, Paenther is a cunning prisoner who seduces her, body and soul, turning captive into captor. Paenther's pride demands revenge against the enchantress who emerged from the deep woods like a sensual vision and enthralled him, even as she makes his body burn with passion. Despite his fury over her treachery, Skye's gentle beauty calls to his soul, calming the wild chaos within him, and stealing his heart. But when evil threatens, Paenther and Skye's only chance at survival is to trust in one another…and the power of love.
