Having just written Second Chance Ranch which has two alpha males butting heads, I thought I would pick my three favorite alpha males I have written…
This was hard. I love writing alpha males with soft underbellies, alpha men who would die for their brothers-in-arms, or their families, who love children, and kittens, but will equally be happy to go the whole distance to keep everyone safe. So, after much thinking…
Jack, The Heart of Texas
Jack is solid, and is the one person who can stop Riley and say *enough*. He is Riley’s rock, the center of the family, the one that supports everyone.
He is strong, sexy, loves to switch, loves the barn (and knows how to tie Riley up just the right way). Even though I am actually team!Riley, Jack is my ultimate alpha male to write with his quiet ways and his utter determination in life.
Finn, Alpha Delta
This story was written specifically about an alpha, who happens to be part of the Norwegian Delta team. Finn is the ultimate action hero and not only does he rescue Niall, he allows Niall to rescue him right back. Swoon… I love that he is so brave and utterly determined to fight through everything to save the man he loves.
Sanctuary, Heroes & Bodyguards series
God, it was so hard to find a single guy in among all these alpha males. The one I guess that springs to mind the most is Viktor Zavodny. He first appears in Sanctuary as a bit of an asshole, who is not only an expert in ordnance for his SEAL team, but is also prone to loving and leaving his one night stands. He is the very definition of action hero, all guns and action, and that doesn’t stop, even when he gets back together with his one *true love*. He’s a complete bastard to start, but by the end he’s a pussycat. Swoons again.
The Heart of Texas (Texas #1)
Riley Hayes, the playboy of the Hayes family, is a young man who seems to have it all: money, a career he loves, and his pick of beautiful women. His father, CEO of HayesOil, passes control of the corporation to his two sons; but a stipulation is attached to Riley’s portion. Concerned about Riley’s lack of maturity, his father requires that Riley ‘marry and stay married for one year to someone he loves’.
Angered by the requirement, Riley seeks a means of fulfilling his father’s stipulation. Blackmailing Jack Campbell into marrying him “for love” suits Riley’s purpose. There is no mention in his father’s documents that the marriage had to be with a woman and Jack Campbell is the son of Riley Senior’s arch rival. Win win.
Riley marries Jack and abruptly his entire world is turned inside out. Riley hadn’t counted on the fact that Jack Campbell, quiet and unassuming rancher, is a force of nature in his own right.
This is a story of murder, deceit, the struggle for power, lust and love, the sprawling life of a rancher and the whirlwind existence of a playboy. But under and through it all, as Riley learns over the months, this is a tale about family and everything that that word means.
Officer Finn Hallan has never run from a fight. With Niall’s life at stake, he’s not about to start now…
Finn Hallan is a member of the elite Norwegian Emergency Response Unit, code name Delta. When the team is sent to respond to a hostage situation on a Oil Platform in the Norwegian Sea, he has to face demons he thought he had buried a long time ago.
Scottish engineer Niall Faulkner’s skills in oil platform decommissioning takes him to the Forsetti platform at the worst possible time. When he’s captured by terrorists, his only thought is that he will never get to tell his lover how he really feels.
Can Finn keep Niall alive? Or will they both die at the hands of hijackers in the frigid waters of the Norwegian sea?

Heroes – Sometimes the wars you need to fight are the ones you left at home…

His childhood friend and first love… Lieutenant Aiden Coleman, Sheriff.
