Alpha Males. You know you love em. And so do we! We're celebrating them and all their delicious alpha male glory for an entire week with giveaways at every single blog. Stop by and check out which males are making us pant with all that sexy swagger they have going on.


So why do I love alpha males so much?
1. He is a leader. Whether he is a CEO, King or President, I love a man in charge of his world.
2. He has self-confidence. A man who is comfortable in and takes care of his skin is uber sexy.
3. He is a man of action and intelligent. He is quick to find solutions to problems.
4. He has honor, integrity and loyalty. He will fight to protect those he cares about.
5. He has an air of unpredictability about him. You don't want to be on his wrong side.

One of my favourite alpha males to write was Joshua Inemi-Spiff from Island Bound. Christy is such an alpha female that she could only submit to an alpha male to tame her. Any other kind of man and she would bulldoze him over.

Here's an excerpt of the two of them together


Joshua turned to walk away then paused. “I’ll leave you to relax and freshen up. There are employees available to cater for whatever you want. I’ll be out for a while. I need to have a chat with the project manager but I won’t be long.”
She shook her head. “You did this on purpose, didn’t you? This is all calculated. You brought me here because you knew how much it would affect me.”
“Yes, I did. I wanted you to remember and to listen. I wanted you to realize what you’d be losing and call off the stupid divorce.”
“Never!”
“Sweetheart, you’re so quick to refute. The two weeks are just beginning.”
“Why are you doing this?” she challenged. Her emotions rolled, making her feel unbalanced. It had been a long three months. And it seemed like today was only going to get worse.
“Christy, you know the reason. If you stopped long enough and thought about it hard, in your heart, you’ll know.”
“You can stop this.” She struggled to contain her anger. “You started this; you can end it.”
“I know, but I won’t.”
“You, you—” Enraged, she lifted a hand to slap him.
Joshua caught her hand midair, held it tight. Before she could react, he pushed her back against the wall, pinning her to it with his rigid body.
Christy sensed every bit of him, his strength, and his physical nature that he never bothered to hide.
“I think I have the perfect answer for all your bottled-up rage,” he said as he parted her thighs with his leg.
“Move,” she ordered, her throat dry and croaky, betraying her increasing apprehension.
Joshua had it easy. He was a man at home with his masculinity. She had never been able to resist him. He could have any woman he wanted. Sometimes, she wondered if he had, especially during their separation. She shouldn’t care if he’d been with anyone else. After all, her goal was a divorce. Still, she couldn’t suppress the intensity of her feelings. Perhaps her anger and hatred drove the concentration of her emotions.
“We have to get a few things sorted out first,” he replied.
He moved closer, his body flush against hers; his chest crushed her breasts, his thighs pressed against hers. Though she wore cotton trousers and a tank top, all of him stroked her.
“What are you doing?” she asked as she pushed against him.
He didn’t budge. “Just trying to relieve some of your frustration. That’s what all your aggression has been about, isn’t it?”
“Rubbish!”
“Such vehement denial, when the evidence is so obvious.”
Her face stung with revealing heat as warm blood rose in her body. Mortified, she tried to move to shake him off, but only managed to get her body even more entangled with his.
Her breathing came in short snatches. She became more aware of Joshua, his hardness and heat.
“I hate you.” Her voice sounded strangled. Blistering white rage swept through her.
“You lie, sweetheart.”
He lowered his head, trailing his lips against her cheeks in a tormenting caress.
“You love me.”
