I'm feeling really awful today. I picked up someone's cold when we went to Syracuse on Wednesday. You know, I'm all for sharing, but some things--We just don't need to share! Ugh!

Anyway, I have two books that I had signed at the Lori Foster's Get Together to give away on my blog. They have been sitting upstairs in my room (I kinda forgot about 'em).

Looky, aren't those pretty covers! And they could be yours. Lora Leigh writes some of the hottest alpha males around. I'm partial to her Breeds though :). They are both brand spankin new and signed! Just leave a comment and I'll draw a winner on
Tuesday, July 14th!

If you want, tell me what series has the best Alpha Males! For me it would be either Lora Leigh's Breeds or Nalini Singh's Changelings.

Nauti Nights -
Blurb: James “Dawg” Mackey has lusted after sweet Crista Jansen for years. Just as many as she’s spent running from him—and from that dangerous attraction that shot like a spark through her whole body. But now for Crista, running isn’t an option anymore because Dawg’s got a plan. It’s kind of low-down. And kind of hot.

Blackmail is a dirty word, but Dawg will use it if that’s what it takes to get Crista where he wants her. His hungers are too hard and fierce not to. He doesn’t realize that Crista has a longing too. She’s knows what he’s up to, what he’s capable of. He didn’t get that nickname for nothing. And before the night is through, Crista’s making him work for it.

Nauti Dreams -
Blurb: Natches Mackay separated himself from his family years ago, except for the two cousins who gave him the only family he’d known. Now he’s being dragged back into his father’s life in ways that could destroy him and the one woman who tempts him beyond reason: Government Agent Chaya Dane, who has fought to put her own past behind her. A mission in Somerset, Kentucky, brings her back into the dreams of Natches—and into the shadows cast by his father, suspected in the theft of government missiles. And it could cost Chaya more than she ever imagined.

I'm going to have to keep this giveaway limited to the US and Canada. But those of you across the ocean are still welcome to tell me who you think writes the best Alpha Males!


Blanche said...

Hi Amy! Sorry about the cold, I'm just getting over one myself and I'd love to know who was generous enough to share it with me!

Very nice giveaway! I agree with you on great Alpha's by Lora Leigh. I also love Sarah McCarty's Alpha's in her Promise series!

I hope you are feeling better soon!!


Amy C said...

Oh Blanche! I have only read one of Sarah McCarty's Promises books, Promises Reveal, and I did also read one of her other westerns, Caine's Reckoning, and I agree, she writes some great Alpha Males!

Armenia said...

Hi Amy! I am new to your blog and pretty excited I was led here. Like your reviews to some books I've never considered, but now maybe I should give a second look.

Sorry about your cold. I know how you feel cause I got the funk from my youngest right before school let out. Yuck, not fun at all.

Please count me in for your giveaways, which are really nice, indeed. There is nothing like a Lora Leigh Alpha male to make you melt all over.Hmm..

Lea said...

Hi Amy!

(((hugs))) I hear you girl. Colds suck and the sharing - I'm so not a fan either... You take care.

Please don't enter me in your lovely giveaway because I have both those books in the stacks but I'll be sure to do the pimpage for you. ;)

((double hugs))


PS: I have a migraine, so I'm all about the misery today too. :(


Estella said...

Hope you're feeling better soon!
I agree with you that Nalini Singhs Changelings have the best Alpha Males.

My Blog 2.0 (Dottie) said...

Hi Amy!

Alpah males...I love alpha males, too hard to choose just one...I wouldn't want one of the guys to feel slighted!

I've posted your contest on my blog, but I already have these books, so don't enter me.

Thanks Amy!

Dottie :)

Chris said...

Hope you feel better quickly! I've read most of Lora Leigh's Breeds books - the Nautis are up next on my list!

Hmm. Hottest alpha males. Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld are pretty hot. So are the demon brothers in Larissa Ione's Demonica series.

Blodeuedd said...

Good luck to all those entering :D

I haven't read enough yet to tell you about Alphas...but since I have read the DBD. Mmmm those are some nice alphas right there

budletsmom said...

People need hand sanitizer and just dip themselves in it. That way they can stop spreading their germs. I hate getting sick too Amy.I think Nalini Singhs Changeling series has the best and most protective Alpha Males. Also Ms.Feehans Carphathians are pretty Alpha too.

Tea and sleep is the best cure for nasty colds. Hope you feel better.


Michelle G said...

Hello Amy,

Hope the cold clears up soon - summer colds are the worst.

I have not read Lora Leigh and would love a chance to win these books. :) I'm going with LKH's Alpha's from the Merry Gentry series.....Doyle in particular. :)


tetewa said...

Ienjoy Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter males!

Amy C said...

Hey Armenia! Thank you for coming by. You are welcome here any time you like!

Lea :(, I hope you feel better soon too.

Hey Estella, thanks :), and good luck!

Thank you, Dottie :).

Amy C said...

Hey Chris, I've never read Gena Showalter, but I do hear great things about her books.

Blodeuedd, Ms. Ward's Brothers are very alpha! Love them too.

Bubletsmom, thank you for stopping by :).

IHBG, sleep sounds real good right about now!

Amy C said...

Michelle, I tried LKH years ago. I read the first Anita Blake book, and it didn't sit well with me :). I have wanted to try her Merry Gentry books though.

Hey Tetewa, SK's heroes are a very good choice for great alphas!

Amanda said...

Oh the best Alpha males for me are Karen Marie Monings highlanders....... these are fine specimens of verra HOT men!!

I'm accross the ocean... but best of luck to those that enter!

Cindy W said...

Amy, I hope you feel better real soon! Hmm... Linda Howard can write an Alpha Male like no other! Putting on my blog!

Lori T said...

Hi Amy~

Sorry you are not feeling well...I hate getting colds and summer colds seem to stink the most! I hope that you get feeling better quickly.

I would love to be entered. I do love Lora Leigh.

CrystalGB said...

Hi Amy. I hope you feel better soon. I agree with you Nalini Singh's heroes are great alpha males. Thank you for the giveaway.

housemouse88 said...

Hope you get ot feeling better. The books look and sound awesome. I've not read much of her work. Love alpha males. Have a great day.

Mary G said...

Hi Amy
Feel better soon. I have both of the books.Just want to comment. Love Lora Leigh's guys, Sarah McCarty's, Jaci Burton's Riding guys, Shannon Mckenna's & that's without looking at my books. My list could go on. Oh Yeah Firefighter guys by Jo Davis.

Martha Lawson said...

Sherrilyn Kenyons Dark Hunters do it for me!! Hope you feel better real soon!!

Cecile said...

Hey Amy!! I already have these two, so please don't enter me in this contest... but I will be pimping this out at my place!!!!
I hope you feel better honey!!! I know what you mean about the sharing thing!!!

The_Book_Queen said...

Ugh, I'm sorry that you had to get someone's nasty cold. ;) Hope you feel better soon though!

But thanks for sharing the books with us-- I'd rather you do that than share the cold! LOL.

Personally, I think Lora Leigh's Breeds' are the top when it comes to yummy Alpha Males, but all the other ones out there, by other authors, etc, are very close in the lineup. ;)


kim h said...

cool would love to win

Leontine said...

Hi Amy,
I hope you feel better soon, cold's are so nasty, it makes you overall just plain sick *bleh*. You've got an awesome giveaway going on, I luuuurve me my Nauti boys :D and though I am overseas I just couldn't resist to tell you who some of my best alpha-males are:

Daemon, Saetan and Lucivar, you know why ;-)
Rain Tairen Soul, Belliard and Gaelen.
Dageus & Cain MacKeltar and Adam Black.

Of course I have more but these instantly come to mind right now.

Get some rest, plenty of fluids and vitamins and I hope you're back on your feet real soon Amy (((hugs)))

moonduster said...

Both books sound great!

Sorry to hear about your cold. This is allergy season for me, so I know what it feels like!

Amy C said...

Oh yes, karen Marie Moning writes some terrific heroes and Jo Davis's Firefighters!! Oh yes, I enjoy those guys.

Thanks, Cecile :)

HAHA, Book Queen! I'd rather share the books too :).

Oh Leontine, you have some awesome taste in alpha heroes, my friend. Daemon, Saetan and Lucivar--Oh my :D. And Rain, Belliard and Gaelen--Holy cow! I can't wait to read the fourth book!! It's gonna be amazing.

Thank you all so much for the well wishes and entering my giveaway! The sucky thing, we are supposed to go out to Lake Ontario for a picnic today with some's the Pirate Festival this weekend. Ugh. And I'm supposed to make a salad that I don't want to make.

Eva S said...

Hi Amy,
sorry about your cold, I hope you're feeling better!
Great books for your giveaway!! I have them both, love Lora Leigh's alpha males and for me it's either her Breeds or Nalini Singh's heroes too!!

RachieG said...

Gotta second the Breeds' them! I also REALLY enjoy *wink wink* J.R. Ward's alpha males. All of them are pretty hot!! woot woot!

Valorie said...

The Vampire Chronicles. Those men might have certain tendencies, but they are powerful and confident and very, very strong.

Jamie said...

I have never read anything from Lora Leigh but now I will have to go check her out. I love me some Alpha males and my fav is Nalini's Changling's and I love Adam from Mercy Thompson series.

Linda Ellen said...

Ooo, some hotties. ;)

I hope you'll feel better really soon!

I hope this will help you feel better too. =)

Anonymous said...

Lora Leigh would have to be the one for me, but I must say the best Alpha male character would be Kelley Armstrongs Clay.

Jess said...

They are great covers and they look and sound like fun reads. Please count me in the giveaway.

Anonymous said...

I could list great alpha males all day! Lora Leigh is great, so is Kate Douglas, and so is Nalini Singh! I just can't pick a favorite.


Book Junkie said...

I would have to say Lora Leigh's Breeds! Those alpha's are out of this world! Next to JR Wards BDB series!

Anonymous said...

I guess I'll go with Lora Leigh's Breeds or Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunters!

Pam S

Cybercliper said...

Wow, alpha males, huh, there's so many but I guess if I had to narrow it down, I'd go either for Ward's sexy BDB vamps or Adrian's Breeds - Teagon ((shivers) oh, baby!!!

Nothing worse than a summer cold! Hard to imagine a cold bug since we're sitting down here in S. Texas with over 20 days of triple digits - air condition sinus headaches for us...get well soon!
