Tall, Dark & Alpha: An Alpha is Adventurous

 3_10 TDACover400x398

Thank you for hosting us today. We’re excited to talk about the alpha trait adventurousness and our stories for the boxed set Tall, Dark & Alpha as we try to figure out: what IS alpha?

An Alpha is Adventurous

The alpha man is always up for an exciting adventure. Don’t expect him to sit around all night on the couch and watch you knit. He wants to be in the center of the action. Exotic locales, extreme sports, chasing bad guys—you name it. His adventurous spirit extends to the bedroom and beyond.

In Sex With an Ex by Eve Vaughn, a contemporary romance, the alpha hero is a lawyer. Ethan Boudreaux is down for any type of adventure, especially the sexual kind. He’s willing to take on anything as long as Riley is by his side. (When two divorcees reunite in the bedroom, the sex is hotter than ever, but can their hearts survive the second time around?)

The alpha hero for In Her Wildest Dreams by Farrah Rochon is a CEO chocolatier. Gavin uses his sexy, adventurous side to help Erica craft the ultimate Valentine’s Day fantasy for her event-planning business, Your Wildest Dreams. (When the woman of his dreams asks him to create a Valentine’s Day fantasy, Gavin plans to show her just how sweet their reality could be.)

In Two Cops, a Girl and a Pair of Handcuffs by Paige Tyler, a contemporary romance, the heroes, Reed and Hayes, are both cops. Having a ménage is the definition of adventurous, and Reed and Hayes are nothing if not adventurous. (Working the late shift just got a whole lot more fun!)

The alpha hero in Chase and Seduction: Hot Country Series, Book 1 by Randi Alexander, a contemporary romance, is a musician. When Chase Tanner is tapped to star as a bartender in a film, he jumps at the chance. The adventure pays off when he meets screenwriter Reno Linden and after months of filming together, realizes she’s the woman he’s been looking for. (Come backstage and get your hands on country superstar Chase Tanner!)

In Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic by Sam Cheever, a paranormal romance, the alpha hero is a bounty hunter. Audie lives in a post-apocalyptic world. Every moment is an adventure. (A grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.)

The alpha hero in Rock My Boat by Afton Locke, a paranormal romance, is a shape shifter. Simon left home to pursue a life of adventure on the high seas. And he’s not afraid to do some dirty-dancing karaoke in front of a crowd or swim in a public fountain. (Once addicted to the sea, you can’t escape its pleasures.)

Silver Tongued Devils by Dawn Montgomery, a sci-fi romance, has two alpha heroes. Captain Anderson Na’varr is the last of his royal bloodline on a mission to save his people. He loves the thrill of outwitting his enemies while keeping his people safe. Finding a hot-blooded and gorgeous hacker on his ship gives him a goal to complete. A new future to chase down.

Brom Raine loves adventure. There’s nothing better than facing down those who oppressed his people and would ruin those weaker than him. Raesa and Captain Na’varr bring out the animal in him, letting him follow his instincts. (She was always one step from hell until she found redemption in their arms.)

The alpha hero in Crazy by Eve Langlais, a paranormal romance, is a vampire. Zane likes a varied diet with his blood, which is how he ends up at the asylum and meets Ella. (Ella hears voices and they don’t like anyone.)

Featured Story – Sex With an Ex by Eve Vaughn


After a devastating break-up, Riley Mason believed she had moved on with her life. That is until she crosses paths with the one man who still makes her pulse race and knees buckle, her ex-husband Ethan Boudreaux. Though she tries to fight it, the attraction is stronger than ever.

Ethan Boudreaux’s greatest regret is walking away from the woman he loved. But when he’s presented with a second chance with Riley, there’s no way he’ll let the opportunity slip through his fingers. He soon devises a plan to get her back into his life and in his bed.

When these two divorcees reunite in the bedroom, the sex is hotter than ever. But can their hearts survive the second time around?


Ethan inched closer.

Riley’s mouth fell open. Ethan’s powers of persuasion were just as effective as ever and she realized then she’d have to get him out of her house before he convinced her to agree to the other part of his proposition. She backed away, shaking her head. “Ethan, you need to leave. You’ve gotten what you wanted.”

“Not quite.” He advanced, his hazel gaze held her hypnotized.

She attempted to move away again, but the backs of her legs came up against the loveseat. Before she could process his next move, Ethan hooked his arm around her waist and pulled her against the hard wall of his body.

He still wore the same scent that used to send her senses reeling. She trembled. No! She couldn’t let this happen. Riley pressed her hands against his torso to push him away but Ethan wouldn’t budge.

“What are you so afraid of Riley? Of what I’m going to do to you? Or that you’ll like it.”

She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of answering his question. Riley didn’t want him to know how his closeness still affected him. “This is highly inappropriate.”

He smirked. “I know. Doesn’t it feel great?”

“Ethan, this is crazy. We both know nothing is going to happen. We’re divorced.”

“I never signed any papers.”

“It doesn’t matter if you did or not, Ethan. In the eyes of the law we’re no longer married, so I’d like for you to let me go and leave. Dealing with you throughout the course of these wedding functions is one thing but what you’re suggesting is out of the question.”

Ethan seemed unimpressed by her argument, in fact he seem quite amused judging from the way his grin widened as she spoke.

“This isn’t funny, Ethan. Let go.” Again she pushed at his chest but he was solid like an oak tree.

He nodded. “You’re absolutely right. There’s nothing funny about this. I’m quite serious of the fact I still want you, and you feel the same way but you haven’t given me a valid reason why we shouldn’t take what we want. And don’t give me that weak argument about us not being married anymore. If anything, the fact that we were once together is a reason why we should do this.”

Riley snorted. “You are out of your mind. How do you figure that?”

“Like I said, sex was never one of our problems. Who better than to have sex with than someone who’s familiar with what you like. For instance, I remember how you loved being kissed here.” Before she realized what he was up to, he pressed a kiss at the pulse of her neck.

Riley’s breath caught in her throat.

    It’s important to me to have a take charge guy who wants to explore and push my limits. Parasailing, snorkeling, white water rafting, caving and eating spicy food. Couch potatoes and gamers need not apply lol.

  10. My favorite alphas are the shapeshifters they are very adventurous in and out of the bedroom 🙂

  11. Great post! I really enjoyed the excerpt, too! I can’t wait to make time to read my copy. 🙂
    I am not a very adventurous person, so I need someone who will push me to my limits and get me to try new things. Good thing that I like Alpha men! 😉
    Thank you for sharing.

  12. Life would definitely be exciting with a shape shifter around, Wanda! Tina B, sounds like an alpha man could definitely push some boundaries. Enjoy the stories!

  13. Mona Livsey says:

    Love these Alpha Male books they’re wonderful! I may not be able to go to exotic locations, though many say Hawaii is one . But I’d love to splash around in a public water fountain and I would love to create some interesting recipes with a Hot Alpha Male if available, thanks for sharing love the blog!!

  14. That’s true. Exotic experiences can be found in a lot of ways, Mona, not necessarily requiring travel. Glad you stopped by!

  15. maureen simiyu says:

    I love adventurous because they are never afraid to try anything.

  16. A man who’s willing to try anything is always fun, Maureen!
