Hi Naomi! Thanks for having me as your guest today and letting me blog about one of my favorite topics, sexy alpha males. Don’t get me wrong, there is always room to read about sexy beta males, but they don’t tend to be my focus. I like strong, dark, tortured heroes so I was tickled hot pink when my editor asked for Seth’s story.
Seth is my bad boy anti-hero in Snow and the Seventh Wolf. Maybe anti-hero is too strong a word, but he was the villain in my previous book, Little Red Riding Wolf, so he had to stretch to become the hero. But that’s what I love about paranormal. The men smolder with more than sensuality, they have real angst and pain.
Real angst and pain? I hear you, you’re wondering how any of it can be real when it’s set in a fairy tale setting. When you twist reality and twist plots, when you have werewolves and magic and happily-ever-afters, can the pain be real? That’s one of the things about paranormal romance, under the creative settings and world building are real personalities. People dealing with the same issues and problems that we deal with in our mundane worlds. Loss, death and heartbreak.
Somehow, when you read a really good book, it moves you. The characters agony can be felt and you can’t wait for them to find their way through their labyrinth of pain and reach redemption and love. That’s what we read for. And of course, if you read hot paranormal romance you get a bonus. Spicy exciting tales of adventure and shapeshifters and love.
For me, the story of a strong man learning to open his heart up to pain and loss, to become vulnerable for the love of a woman, that is the epitome of romance. Romance of my favorite kind; hot, alpha and very sexy.
Thanks Jessica for your great post!! Sexy Alpha males are definitely my favourites to read about..... mmmmm!!
