Ah, the Alpha Male. There’s nothing I like more than writing – or reading – a story about an physically large alpha male who can be overbearing, dominant, and too protective who is brought to his knees and turned into a pile of goo by a woman.

I love it!

Perhaps it is because I’m so tall (I stand at 5’10), I like my alpha’s to be tall – that has to be a requirement for me. When an alpha is described as standing at six feet, I tend to think, meh, I could drop kick the guy!

That’s why all my Warriors in the Six Saviors series start at 6’4 and go up from there. I like ’em big!

  1. I couldn’t think of a physical attribute, but I just love a emotionally wounded alpha.


  2. I’m not sure what physical trait I would require.

    I understand what you mean about the guy being taller, but I stand at 5’1 – pretty much anyone with legs is taller than me.

    On a slightly random side note (your comment about only writing about guys of a certain height reminded me of this), did you know that there are speed dating services where women specify if they want a guy of a certain height and the men who sign up aren’t let in until they are measured? It’s kind of crazy, but that same service also has “skinny minnie” nights and nights for guys who have achieved a certain size requirement in other areas . . . – what can I say, the world is a strange place.

    Thanks for participating in the hop!

  3. I love sarcasm, that is a biggie for me they just have to ooze with it . Physically I agree with they have to be tall and their eyes mesmerizing.


  4. I tend to muscle worship a little. Hard thighs, strong arms, 6 or 8 packs, wrapped in sun kissed skin…. Sorry, drooling.

  5. 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!

  6. 1 physical attribute? Absolutely sexy eyes… now I’m going to go before I change my mind and start adding more and more …

  7. Hey there Carly,

    Doing the Alpha Male blog hop! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! 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! I’m not talking about obnoxious bullies! They are loyal, loving, caring and protective.. They 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.

    My list above has all the traits I would love to see in my alpha male but I will add the height. The taller the better! I’m 5′ 7 and like to look up. Vain I know but…

    Thanks for the opportunity to meet you, explore your site and win some great prizes.

  8. I love my Alpha Males. They keep me coming back for more.
    I Love how protective they are of their woman even when they KNOW she can kick some major ass.
    The MUST have for my alpha male is: He has to be at least 6’4. Like you I am tall at 5’7, so my man must be at least 6’4 so I can look UP to him not at him. LOL
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

  9. Alpha males are awesome!! Betas are too, so you got to love them all!
    They have to have humor and know when is the right time to make me smile and laugh.
    Thanks for the giveaway and being apart of the Blog Hop!

  10. I don’t think there’s much not to like about Alpha males. What I like most about them is their confidence.

  11. Jack Gordon from Liz Crowe’s REALTOR series rocks!

    Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It’s all in the heart…..alpha males are the best!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!

  12. I love alpha heros. So hot! 🙂 I love how dominant, possessive, loyal and protective they are. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway! This is so much fun!

  13. One physical requirement would have to be mesmerizing eyes. I also want them to be tough and protective on the outside but caring and loving on the inside. Thanks for being a part of the hop. I love alphas! I hope that you have a great week!
