Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I think most of us can agee we love our Alphas but there are some really great Beta Heroes out there in literature, movies and TV. Who is your favorite?

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 1922 comments What exactly is a beta hero? He is a secondary character who's not as alpha as the alpha, or he is not exactly alpha?

If it's not exactly alpha (caveman) my #1 would be...

1. Christian from Flowers from the Storm.

My understanding of a Beta is one who is more sensitive and kinder than the Alpha. He is able to respect the heroine's ideas and wishes, whereas the Alpha takes what he wants and can be a royal jerk at times. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments There are many lovable betas but one that holds a special place in my heart is Carter McCoy from The Texan's Wager. and, Julie, you picked some goodies too.

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 671 comments I have that one on my TBR list, Pamela. I've heard a lot of good things about it.


 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 146 comments Carter McKoy is my pick as well, Pamela!

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Carter McKoy in The Texan's Wager (Wife Lottery, #1) by Jodi Thomas is my fav hero so far this year. That says a lot. My next is much more alpha: Iain MacKinnon in Surrender (MacKinnon’s Rangers, #1) by Pamela Clare . **sigh**

namericanwordcat | 591 comments Ahhhh. My favorite heros are Betas. I just think of them as reasonable lol.

My favorite hero ever is The Mane Squeeze (Pride, #4) by Shelly Laurenston He is not afraid to be goofy to have self doubt and to be just the bomb.

Others of great note are

A Brother's Price by Wen Spencer This is a gender reversed world. Great book.
Big Bad Beast (Pride, #6) by Shelly Laurenston Man can cook.
Dark Angel/Lord Carew's Bride (Dark Angel #1, #2) by Mary Balogh
Heart Dance (Celta's Heartmates #6) by Robin D. Owens
Wild Oats (Wild Oats, #1) by Pamela Morsi
