Quickie Giveaway & Gina Gordon Gets Naughty at the Lair!

The Lair would like for you to give a warm welcoming to...

Ms. Gina Gordon.....

She has seem to have snuck in the Lair undetected

and brought with her.... some hot men.......

The Temptation of the Alpha Male

We all give in to temptation. Whether it’s coming on to the handsome man from your neighborhood, eating that sinful dessert that goes straight to your thighs, or buying those knee-high leather boots you’ve been eyeing in the store window for months.

We all know Cecile can’t resist her Tribal men *wiggles eyebrows*

Admittedly, my biggest temptation is books. I know, I know, boring right. But I cannot go into a book store and NOT buy a bag full of books. It’s sort of like I’m on auto pilot. And that buy with one-click option on Amazon isn’t doing me any favors either.

But since we’re in the lair, I will stay true to my fine Hussy form and talk about the next best thing to books—the Alpha Male!

I like the take-charge confidence and masculine presence of a man that knows what he wants and how to get it. I love that tortured soul with a rough exterior that turns to total goo when he finds his soul mate. I swoon over a man that takes control but knows exactly when to step back and give the heroine room to exercise her own strength. I like knowing that a man can get so riled up with want that he teeters on the edge of losing control—but of course never does. At least not with the heroine, but that doesn’t stop him from ripping off the head of the bad guy.

I recently watched the movie Speed with my husband for about the gazillionth time and I had forgotten that Jack Traven is the quintessential Alpha Male. Keanu Reeves is perfect in his portrayal of a bomb squad cop, his body buff and his hair buzzed. That white t-shirt and cargo pants just add to the sexy package. Damn that Sandra Bullock was a lucky gal. But I digress.

I am usually a fan of cowboys who can very much be Alpha Males, Lorelei James writes an Alpha cowboy like no other. But the image of a uniformed/military Alpha has been weighing heavy on my mind because of these:

You can’t get any more Alpha than these covers. You can’t get any more drool worthy. Thank you Lori Foster (:

In short, there is nothing more appealing than an Alpha Male. And for all you women who squawk about the unrealistic portrayal of men in romance novels and how they are always sexy and hot and extremely built—well….you can stick it! I love the fantasy of the romance hero. I love the hope that somewhere out there is a woman who has found her real Alpha cowboy and indulges in being tied up to her headboard night, after night, after night.

So what about you? Are you an Alpha or Beta?

Now for the time you all have waited for - besides seeing those hot covers.....

Giveaway time!!!

  1. I definately love Alpha men! Unfortunately, my biggest temtation is also books. Even knowing that I have alot already to read, I can't resist buying more, and then more and more. I think there should be a rehab, no never mind. I would not go! LOL

  2. I love a strong alpha man in books but in real life he would get on my nerves really fast. My temptations are books and contest. I have so many books to read that I could go forever without buying anymore but I can't help myself if I see a book that looks good as soon as I can afford it I will buy it.

  3. LMAO @ --- you can stick it!
    you got that right :)

  4. Hi June! If there was a rehab for books I would fall off the wagon every time. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Sherry! Hmmm..I don't know. I think I could handle an Alpha Male. And I agree, my tbr pile is disgustingly huge. Thanks for commenting.

    Hi Elaine! I would never tell you to stick it LOL

  5. Alpha 100% to the core. I like them hot as hell, rough around the edges, and in control. Especially in the bed room, or bathroom or wall... Whatever you all know what I mean. Thanks for the opportunity for something from the awesome Gina G.

  7. I'm going to say alpha, but it really depends on the character and what his priorities are.
    My biggest temptation is dessert.

  8. Janeen, ...or car, or kitchen or floor LOL I get it. Thanks for commenting.

    latishajean, I love when a man takes the lead..those are my favorite books (: Thanks for stopping by.

    Leni, dessert is good too! What about an Alpha Male feeding you chocolate mousse while you read a book? Sounds good to me! Thanks for commenting.

  9. I love Alpha men also. My biggest temptation is books. I can't get enough of them. I am always either buying them or winning them. I have so many book write now. I enjoy reading so very much. Its my to escape from my life. Please enter me in contest. I would love to read this book.
