Everyone have a scary and boo--tiful day!!
Busy day ahead, school party, bingo and trick or treat, I'll be back sometime tomorrow.
part of me thinks that almost all romance heroes are alpha and we just need to pick one in each category that best exemplifies that persona.Keep listing Alphas and which category you think they belong to and I'll try to figure out how to do polling and hopefully have that up in the next day or so.
Do those work?? Are additional categories necessary--Let me know.
Here's my original list and the rest were left in the comments, where would you put them on the Alpha Scale?
I've read everything with the exception of Shannon McKenna and I don't remember Prisoner of My Desire, but am pretty sure I read it--back then I read Lindsey faithfully. Sometime today I'll post them to the different categories, but I'll put them in comments.
I obviously have a high alpha tolerance level, Cullan didn't bother me in the least...
I’m with Tara in that his over the top alphaness didn't bother me...
We all have differing levels of alpha male tolerance. We should make up a sliding scale!
Let's compile a great big list and maybe we'll find some books we've never read, more for the TBR pile.
That's all I have time to list, got to get Junior to school.
That's all that's fits to print, at least for today, have a good one and happy reading.
Normally The Disaster Area is the title I reserve for my son's bedroom, especially after a particularly good/bad playdate. These days it seems to be my entire house. Why? I've got books everywhere. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but it's not too far off. I don't have stacks of books in the living room, dining room, bathroom or kitchen, though I've only recently moved a stack out of the kitchen and the only reading material in the bathroom is my husband's, but our bedroom, the office and my back porch are infested with books. Infested seems to be the right word as these books seem to be breeding like bugs. The piles of TBR books, already read books, books for my sister, books to exchange, books to return to the library and books to keep seem to be growing by the minute.
I'm going to try and organize today, I wonder if it's possible to get done in a few hours. I doubt it.
I pulled paperback books out of the home office, the only flat surface I can work on is my bed or the office floor, the bed gave me more room.
120 for the trade group or UBS
8 for my sister
9 issues of Romantic Times
Next I'm working on that bookcase to the right of the bed.
Found 128 books in bookcase:
38 for the TBR pile
45 for the trade group or UBS
I've decided to leave the back porch for another day, there are just too many books and I know I wont get it finished. I hate starting something when I know I don't have enough time to get it done.
Have a good one and happy reading.
Actually I think I handled Peter Jensen in the best possible way. I'd already set him up in Black Ice, and at the time I hadn't planned to write a spin-off. And he was working undercover, providing sexual favors for a mafioso. He simply took the persona of who he had to be. He can control his body, perform sexually and doesn't think twice about it. It's a nonissue for himShe goes on to say...
It's simply part of his cold and calculating backstory, and it fit. It wasn't meant to be shocking, though I was pleased that my editors didn't make me wipe out all mention of it and pretend it never happened.
If people won't pick up the book because of it, they probably shouldn't read my books, anyway. The relationships between my heroes and heroines are quite dark and intense. I don't set out to offend, but I'd rather risk that than write something else.
I do find androgyny appealing, but I think that's because of the dichotomy. I love masquerade books in general--plots where someone is pretending to be something he's not. Think Percy Blakeney in The Scarlet Pimpernel. There's something very hot about a lacy, bejeweled fop who's an alpha wolf in bed.And, her next Ice hero is Japanese.
From the Publisher
She's a diplomat:
Danna MacFadyen of the League of Planets is assigned to investigate the explosion of a space freighter. She must use her psychometric skills to determine whether this was an accident or terrorism -- but for Danna, the hardest part of this assignment is working with Korcian Enforcer Cullon Gavriel.
He's a warrior:
Fighting isn't just in a Korcian's blood -- it's in his very soul. Cullon Gavriel already knows the freighter explosion was terrorism -- targeted at the Korcian prince traveling incognito aboard the ship. Cullon's single goal: to discover who is killing Korcian True Bloods. He never expects to become enchanted with a beautiful Terran female who has the ability to step into the past.
As the pieces of an explosive puzzle fall into place...
Danna and Cullon realize they have uncovered a conspiracy that stretches across the galaxy. The trail leads to the capitol city of the Korcian Empire, where shocking secrets lie hidden-- and where the lines between politics and love cross unexpectedly.
