For Love of an Alpha: The 6 Types of Alpha Heroes

The Billionaire Biker by Jackie AshendenJackie Ashenden, author of the just-released Billionaire's Club story The Billionaire Biker, is our latest guest on the blog. If you couldn't tell from her wickedly sexy books, she's a big fan of Alpha males, and especially loves that there are, in fact, such a wide variety of types. Today she's here to share her findings on the 6 flavors of Alpha. Thanks for joining us, Jackie!

Okay, so I have a confession to make: I love an alpha hero. Yeah, I know, loving an alpha isn't so fashionable these days. We want a guy who's more sensitive, who's not so in your face or controlling, who's laid back, who's a bit more true-to-life even.

But me, I'm an alpha girl all the way. He's a very misunderstood beast in my opinion. Like the best kind of bad boy, he has a checkered past and a rap sheet a mile long. He's got a few skeletons in his closet (not looking at anyone in particular old skool romance!). But the true heart of an alpha hero is golden and the journey of him finding that heart is its own very special form of crack.

One of my personal peeves about alpha heroes though, is the accusation that they're all the same. They are not.  They come in many different flavors and if you're not an alpha fan, you may be surprised at what kind of man you might uncover.

Check out these guys here. Six of my favorite alpha hero types and why they're different.

The Billionaire Biker: Exclusive Excerpt

Jackie Ashenden

The Billionaire Biker by Jackie Ashenden

Wild and reckless, and more at ease with his biker gang than his business partners, Sean Morrow has always longed for Abigail Prescott, whose life he ruined when an innocent friendship turned into a night of red-hot passion back when they were in high school. Now that his brother, Jax, has decided to hire Abby to work for the Morrows, Sean can no longer ignore his old demons—or his desire.

It took Abby time to get over Sean Morrow…and then he walked back into her life. And even though she can’t forget the pain, she can’t stop fantasizing about their one erotic encounter…and she still craves his touch. What she feels for Sean is deeper than need. It’s pure, blind lust—and the feeling is mutual…

Get a sneak peek of Jackie Ashenden's The Billionaire Biker (available April 15, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 1.

Chapter 1

Sean shifted uncomfortably in his chair, trying to resist the urge to pull at the tie currently strangling the life out of him. It didn’t help that he was being watched by two sets of blue eyes. Morrow blue eyes. His half-brothers Jax and Donovan, the former studying him from behind his desk, the latter sitting on the corner of the same desk with a critical look on his face.

Sean gazed back. He hadn’t seen either of them for five years but if they wanted to play this game, then he was more than happy with it.

Billion Dollar Bachelor: Exclusive Excerpt

Jackie Ashenden

Jax Morrow, the dangerously handsome, spectacularly wealthy entrepreneur’s world is turned upside down when Pandora Garret walks into the dark, smoky bar one night, a stunning combination of sex and innocence. He knows she’s trouble at first sight, but Jax can’t let her leave…unless she’s leaving with him.

Pandora has had enough. Kept under lock and key by her powerful, controlling father, she aches for freedom. When she briefly escapes and meets Jax she knows he is just what she has been looking for: forbidden, unforgettable passion. After one night in Jax’s arms, Pandora knows she can never go back to living under one man’s domination. Determined to control her own life she tries to resist Jax’s pull, but a dangerous desire rises between them and both their pasts and presents threatens to destry what they have found. But both Pandora and Jax discover that they just can’t walk away…

Get a sneak peek of Jackie Ashenden's Billion Dollar Bachelor (available February 11, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

The guy sitting at the bar in the corner held her frozen to the spot. She couldn’t have said what he was wearing or even if he was handsome or not; the only thing in the world was the fire that burned in his intense blue eyes. The kind of fire that lurked in the heart of a blaze, so intense it didn’t burn orange but a bright, clear blue.

The kind of fire that burned you to ash.

Pandora tore her gaze away, her heart racing even more madly than it had done when she’d escaped the limo. Men looked at her a lot and she was used to it. But what she wasn’t used to was having a response that wasn’t a shiver of repugnance.
