Looking for that Special Someone/thing...

You know how you make a plan and RL throws stuff in the way? Yeah, that's where I'm at now. We didn't get to see the parade Tuesday night - Lord knows we tried! The parades were canceled tonight due to inclement weather (2 out of 3 were rescheduled - yay!), and The Littlest Book Addict is sick - cold and 102.5 fever :( So, all those carefully made plans flew right out the window!

I am looking for a book recommendation. I want an Alpha Male, but not a military-type Alpha; preferably paranormal or contemporary. (I know, I know - lots of requirements!!) Any suggestions? He doesn't need to bring firewood like the guy above, although it is cold outside and a girl needs to be kept warm...


  1. Check out Jessica Bird (aka JR Ward).

    I just finished her 'Moorehouse Legacy' series, and her 'O'Banyon Brothers' book. Really good stuff - contemporary romance that sometimes reminded me of 'Blackdagger Brotherhood', minus the paranormal. I'm going to start her stand-alone novels next.

  2. Danielle - This sounds good; thanks!

  3. I'd recommend something from Shelly Laurenston's Pride Series ( - they're my favorite alpha males and with the twist of being shape shifters, I never get bored!

  4. Here's hoping the Littlest Book Addict gets better soon!

    Have you read Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series? Slave to Sensation is the first one. Lots of alphas!

    If you want romantic suspense with an alpha (but not crazily alpha) male, I'd highly recommend Don't Look Down by Suzanne Enoch - that series is well done and has lots of humor, too.

  5. I am so new so can't help you there Patti

  6. Dana - good call, I have read two of her Pride series but I know she's written more ;)

    Chris - I've only read the first two Psy/Changeling, maybe I should jump back into that - thanks! Will also look into Ms. Enoch (hmmm...that sounds weird).

    Blodeuedd - Yes, since I've been into this for about a year or so I know there's still sooo much for me to discover!

  7. I suggest Leah Brooks Desire Oklahoma Series... menage filled & alpha heavy

  8. Hmm've read Jeanine Frost's Cat and Bones right?

    Lora Leigh is pretty good with her breed series.

    Karen Marie Moning highland series is quite good if you haven't read that.

    Christine Feehan Burning Wild, he's really Alpha.

    Ava Gray Skin Game

    Male/Male JL Langley My Fair Captain woo-lordy s' hot.

  9. SVZ - I have not tried that author - thanks!

    SHB - Love Bones and KMM, haven't tried Burning wild or JL Langley. Will look them up. Thanks!

  10. I was going to suggest Skin Game by Ava Gray, but KC beat me to it ;)

    A contemporary jock alpha: Double Play by Jill Shalvis.

    Firefighters alphas: the Heroes of Silver Springs series by Tonya Ramagos, the first book is Caught off Guard.

    Enjoy your alpha, hon :)

  11. Have you tried Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series?? I just finished the first one and LOVED IT! Also I have to second the Psy/Changeling series...I got so excited about the Guild Hunter series I went straight back to Psy/Changeling series. Try it out and PLEASE let me know how you like them! ;o)

  12. Janna - I just got Double Play in the mail - I'll give it a go, yay!

    Monroe - I read the first two psy/changelings, is the guild hunter series the one with angels?

  13. I hope you like Double Play :) Happy reading!
