Bewitching the Alpha Male Blog Hop

CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!  Molly won from this blog – I’ve sent your book to you.  🙂

Hello everyone!  I’m taking part in two blog hops this weekend – how fun is that?  There’s nothing I like more than an Alpha male–well, except an Alpha male with a dark, brooding past.  Wounded heroes are the best! 

Provoked releases on November 1st and is up for a pre-order sale right now.  So I thought I’d show you a glimpse into Kane Kayrs, a dominant, brilliant, Alpha.  Here’s a quick blurb:

Kane grabbed the brandy glasses. Handing Amber one, he retook his seat in the chair. “Drink.”

“Stop being bossy.”

“Sorry.” Slowly, he took a sip, gaze watchful over the rim.

She drank a healthy gulp. How was she supposed to act normal with a sexy vampire studying her? “Stop staring.”

“No.” He licked a drop from his lip.

She fought a groan. The brandy warmed down her throat to her abdomen. Wind whistled outside, lending an intimacy to the fire-lit area inside. Her eyes half-closed in reaction. Tingles set up in her knees—most likely from the mind war she’d just fought. But the confusion came from her reaction to the vampire. “You shouldn’t have kissed me last night.”

“I know,” he agreed softly.

“Why did you?”

“You’re beautiful, sexy, and I want you.”  His voice was calm and self-assured.

No game-playing with that man.

She fought to keep her face calm. He said want in present tense. Her body reacted instantly. “That’s surprising. I figured you’d go for some robotic scientist type.”

“Apparently not.”

As people, they couldn’t be more different. He was overeducated. She . . . not so much. “I’m a pacifist.”

He gestured for her to finish her drink. “Let’s talk about that.”

She downed the rest of the brandy, a delicious heat sliding through her body. “There’s nothing to talk about.”

He tipped back his head and drank his brandy, the movement both masculine and sexy. Setting the sifter on the side table, he leaned forward, elbows on his knees. “I’ve been thinking.”

“That’s a new one.” She snorted.

Vampires had sexy grins. Who knew?

Kane’s grin widened. “So, I have a solution for our dilemma. You’re a pacifist who shouldn’t fight. I am a closet empath who needs to find my brother.”

The guy probably didn’t confess that fact to many people. She smiled, more warmth coming from his trust than from the alcohol. “What’s a closet empath?”

“Somebody who has fought for years to squash down the ability to read emotions from other people.” He sighed, stretching his neck. “Though, I can also attack with feelings sometimes. The ability can distract an enemy at the right moment, although I’d rather just use my brain.”

“There’s nothing wrong with feeling things, Kane.”

He shrugged. “Not the point.”

“What is the point?” Besides that fact that she was in an intimate setting alone for an entire night with the sexiest man she’d ever met in real life.

“The point is that there is a very simple answer to our dilemma.” His eyes darkened and his strong jaw set. “Mate me.”

So, here are the links if you’d like to pre-order Provoked and be one of the first to download it:


Also, here are the links to get back on the blog hops – make sure you hit the one you’ve been on!  (Feel free to hop on board the other one when you’re finished.  There are tons of great prizes in both.  They’re both scheduled to actually start the 19th)  Speaking of prices, in addition to the ones being given from me on the hops, I’m also giving away signed copies of Fated, Claimed, and Hunted to ONE randomly chosen commenter from my blog here.  So drop me a comment.  Do you have any plans for halloween?

    My sister is having a Halloween party but I HATE to dress in costumes. No costum no entry. I told her she gave me the perfect out. Lol. So I guess I’m getting a mask.
    Have a great Halloween yourself.

    I pre-ordered Provoked on Amazon since last month. Can’t wait to read K’s story. I have read every one of your books. For Halloween I will be Trick or Treating with the neighborhood gang from 4 to 9.
    Then I’ll be giving candy from 9:15 to 12:00. After midnight we check all our candy to make sure it is safely wrapped and we watch horror movies until 2:00 am while eatting candy and popcorn.

  20. JeanMP says:

    Book sounds really good, can’t wait to read it.
    Just handing out candy this year, nothing exciting for Halloween.

  32. Bethanne says:

    somehow, in paranormal the words “let’s mate” ring true to romance. 😀 Don’t ask me why! I guess it’s all that alpha male going on.

  33. Rae M. says:

    Firstly I have to say you are so cruel for ending that excerpt there! So cruel. As for Halloween plans, they’re not exactly concrete yet. It will probably be a movie marathon at night. But as for day plans, not sure yet.


  34. Lisa Walker says:

    Thanx for the tidbit. Can’t wait to read the book! This year I have family visiting for Halloween. Which means I will probably be dragged down into the super crowded, ultra crazy Halloween madness in Waikiki beach. I hope to make it out alive! LOL

  52. Micheleann oboyle says:


  53. Vanessa N. says:

    Great blurb. Thanks for the chance.

  54. Oh, I adore you for the chance at prizes. Did Christina really complain about being dragged to Waikiki Beach? Now I’m depressed, because the scary movie watching planned for our Halloween night just doesn’t compare. Oh, well.

  55. hmmm maybe I will try another vampire book

  56. Carin W says:

    sound like a good one! Carin

  57. Tammy Turner says:

    Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!

  58. ronnie cornett says:

    On Halloween I’ll gtve out candy….this is the 1st I don’t have any of my kids to take out…I’ll kinda miss it.

  59. Linda Arrowwood says:

  62. belindaegreen says:


    Doing the Alpha Male blog hop….oh yeah! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! Wow, 200+ authors—a perfect opportunity to meet new authors! It’s always fun trying to visit as many sites as possible.

    I love alpha heroes who are take charge men! They are loyal, loving and caring men. They usually have sexy looks, brains, money and a commanding presence that draws people. When they find their mates and fall in love they will move heaven and earth to stake their claim. This is exciting to watch even when they are not sure why they have to have or be with this particular person. An awesome love dance! It’s definitely addicting to read.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some great prizes.
