More Alphas....

Jane's suggestion in the comments yesterday was a good one...
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.

Have a good one, Tara

How about Wanderer from Lucia St. Clair Robson's "Ride the Wind"?

I think he was the first kind of Alpha you had listed.. but it's been a decade since I read that book and my memory could be wrong!

TM, you are such a gem for compiling this info for all of us. I love checking back to see what's been added. Good on ya!

Hmmm, nope. Not all heroes are alpha. I'm thinking Cal from Bet Me - I would say he is a beta.

I think any book where the hero and heroine have been friends for years without ever noticing each other would be more of a beta thing.

Dang. Now I can't remember my point.

Okay, I think most of Julie Garwood's historical heroes are the Strong/Protective/Control freak who adjusts.

Cindys, that's a really good point. I'd never thought of it like that before, but I agree totally.

How the heck is spam getting through?

I have to think about that. Their friendship would most likely be a beta relationship, but can't a man turn "Alpha" once in a romantic relationship?

Ooh, not in my opinion he can't! He either is or he isn't!!
