Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments So who is your favorite Alpha Male hero in literature, movies and TV? Okay, you can list more than one but not more than 10! lol


message 2: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Naughty Co-Mod (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 1922 comments Alpha male....

1. Zsadist


Top hero, not necessarily Alpha...

2. Christian from Flowers from the Storm
3. Ian from The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie


message 3: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. Because I just read Dead in the Family and it's fresh, I'm going to say Eric Northman.


message 4: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I could sit here and name about 50 or more but I narrowed it down to these...

Daegus - The Dark Highlander
Sebastian - Devil in Winter
Marcus - It happened In Autumn
Julian - Hard Evidence
Marc - Unlawful Contact
Sam - Mr Perfect

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 1922 comments I'm trying to think about this really hard, Pamela. It's hard!

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 671 comments Without at doubt my favorite alphas are the men vamps of the BDB with Z and V at the top of my list. Also:

Marcus - It Happened One Autumn
Sebastian - Lord of Scoundrels
Devlin - Devil Takes a Bride
Vane - Night Play
Zachary - Where Dreams Begin

I'll stop there for now, but I will say that to make my favs list alphas have to have a dash of beta and show a little gentleness and vulnerability.;-)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 1922 comments Oooh, forgot about Sebastian, Lord Dain.


message 8: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Great choices!


 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 146 comments I guess I'd have to go with Lord Dain! But Dragos from Dragon Bound was pretty scrumptious too.


message 10: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Lady D, I just took a peek at Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison last night (I have it as a planned "buddy read") and ended up reading three chapters. Ooops! Sooooo good!


 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 146 comments I loved it, Lisa!


message 12: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Just marked the next in the series, tbr, this morning: Storm's Heart (Elder Races, #2) by Thea Harrison


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

I loved Dragon Bound ...... When does Storms Heart come out. I LOVE when a Hero is in pursuit of the heroin right from the beginning.


 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 146 comments Me too, Faithmarie!


message 15: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Oh goodie, the person I was going to "buddy read" another book with is willing to jump to Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison . I don't have to give up Dragos Cuelebre just yet. :)

You both gave it 5 stars! Super!

August 2nd.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh Goody....thats not to long. Thanks Lisa.


message 19: by Anna (new)

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 35 comments I have to say that the best and favorite Alpha hero from the TV series: Doctor Who is Rory Williams. He waited for a thousand years for his girlfriend and plus he never gave up and loved her like crazy and plus they are the cutest couple because it never goes beyond kissing and loving each other...enough said for now.


message 20: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I've never seen Doctor Who. Maybe I'll see if they have it on Netflix ☺


message 21: by Ian (new)

Ian Butler (burgerbardad) | 98 comments Horatio Hornblower all day long. Strongly moral, plagued with doubt yet resolute when called to action. Lover warrior poet. Brilliant


message 22: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Good one, Ian ☺ Never read the books but I remember seeing something with him in it.


message 23: by Raelene (new)

Raelene  (kretch) | 16 comments It is hard for me to choose, as there are so many great alpha heroes, but I have to admit that my favorite alpha heroes are the ones in the midgnight breed series by Lara Adrian, I especially loved the first one Lucan Thorne, he got me hooked.

Ian Butler (burgerbardad) | 98 comments Pamela(AllHoney) wrote: "Good one, Ian ☺ Never read the books but I remember seeing something with him in it."

There's a series starring iuann griffiths based on the first two books. However there are about 10 books featuring Hornblower, so I'm hopeful they'll make more.


message 25: by Ian (new)

Ian Butler (burgerbardad) | 98 comments The Master and Commander series with the fascinating relationship of Aubrey and Maturin is also a great read. The two of them together would make a fascinating man. It really develops with each book and you can almost hear the wind and smell the sea. Brilliant

I got an ebook of Lara Adrian. I guess I ought to break down and read it. ☺


message 27: by Anna (new)

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 35 comments Daniel Deronda is just the best besides Rory Williams and Lee Mcavory...oh, there are so many!!!

Oh you should, once you read one you get hooked and will have to read them all.

ap_harmony | 6 comments Roarke, anyone? From J.D. Robb's In Death series. Can't get enough of his doting on Eve!

I second Zsadist and Julian (Hard Evidence).

Just finished Betrayal in Death (In Death, #12) by J.D. Robb yesterday, and had to listen to the novella Interlude in Death (In Death, #12.5) by J.D. Robb right after.


message 31: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Naughty Co-Mod (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 1922 comments Oh, Julian, baby. And Marc, Gabe and Zach. And Iain and Morgan and Connor. *sigh* Pamela Clare writes great heroes!

They're addicting, aren't they? You have to have a few lined up and some time on your hands to get your fix :P


message 33: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Yes, Gopinotes, I accidentally erased a couple that I downloaded to my iPod/Touch from the library and then had to be put back on the "waitlist" for them all over again! Eep!

Oh no! Waiting's the worst. I'm also twiddling my thumbs in the library waitlist line, waiting on Remember When. I'm trying to find something more "available" to read while I wait.

And yes, UniquelyMoi, you can't go wrong with Pamela Clare!


message 35: by Rhea (new)

Rhea Rhodan (rhea_rhodan) | 31 comments Roarke's wonderful. I'm reading Linnea Sinclair's Gabriel's Ghost right now and Sullivan (Gabriel) is really working for me. I have a tendency to "love the one I'm with." :>). I've only read about Zsadist, haven't gotten to his story yet, but I think he might be a favorite, too.


message 36: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I'm reading about Zsadist now. A real tortured soul. Love him.

Rhea Rhodan (rhea_rhodan) | 31 comments Pamela(AllHoney) wrote: "I'm reading about Zsadist now. A real tortured soul. Love him."

I've only read the first book in the series and was introduced to him. I was immediately taken with Zsadist. Please tell. E his book lives up to my fantasies!


message 38: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I liked Z a lot but I think Rhage is my personal fave.


message 39: by namericanwordcat (new)

namericanwordcat | 591 comments I would have to say I actually prefer betas and my favorite beta is The Mane Squeeze (Pride, #4) by Shelly Laurenston

But, you didn't ask that. :)

My favorite Alphas
A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, #1) by Kresley Cole
Motorcycle Man (Dream Man, #4) by Kristen Ashley
Gentle Warrior (Tapestry Romance) by Julie Garwood


message 40: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I love me a few pretty good betas but I tend to love the alpha more for some reason. I'd hate em in real life though.


message 41: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments LOL!


message 42: by Ghada (new)

Ghada | 4 comments My Favorite Alphas

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Nice list, Ghada ☺


❤️ Dorsey aka Wrath Lover Reviews ❤️ Wrath - Dark Lover
Ty - Lady Luck
Joe - At Peace
Dare - When You Dare
Brock - Wild Man
Bones - One Foot in the Grave

My list can go on & on......


message 45: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I just read Wild Man. I liked him but he's not my fave KA hero so far. I'm reading Mitch's story and he's hooking me pretty good so far. But I'm not done so....

Is Lock really a beta? I think he falls outside of any hierarchy but that's because I'm partial to him :D

I really liked Mitch too...but there is something about Brock (even though he was with that skank Darla in MM, I forgive him.....in fantasyland anyway LOL).

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments **snortsnort**


message 49: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Dorsey, that was a hard one for me. I mean, Darla? Really? EEWWWW! But I forgave Brock for it. There was something about Mitch that just drew me in.

I'll be going back to the Colorado Mountain series here shortly. I've read Max and Nina's story and loved it.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 13013 comments My two favourite alpha heros are Jamie Fraser from Outlander and Rourke from In Death. Gorgeous, clever and loyal, sigh and those accents, double sigh...

Favourite bad boy/dirty weekend: Jericho Barrons from KMM Fever series. Mysterious, sorta scary and sexy as hell.

Favourite Tortured Hero: Zsadist from BDB... Lover Awakened... I actually cried when he finally opened up to Bella.

Of course, there's many more.... again sigh
