Is there anything hotter than a powerful man brought to his knees by the strength of his love for one woman? He will fight to the death to protect what is his, and yes, he is old fashioned enough that the heroine is most definitely his. She should fight against that chauvinism, and indeed, some of the hottest sparks between them comes as she tries to assert her independence. Deep down, a part of her yearns to be taken, ravished and dominated by a man who knows how. The alpha male knows how to strike that balance between control and compromise. He will do anything to get the heroine into his bed, and she will let him because the sensuality and power he oozes from every pore is absolutely irresistible to her.
But the alpha male has no interest in a weak woman . Indeed it is that push/pull as she tries to resist his hold over her, this delicious passion between them that inflames him so. The alpha male is intense. He does nothing by half measures both in and out of the bedroom and while the heroine most definitely succumbs to the delicious passion between them, she is left stronger, not weaker. Being loved by an alpha male allows the heroine to flourish because he is able to reach that core of her sexuality that no other man can. She feels power as she has never known because she can bring this powerful man to his knees even as he shatters her defenses again and again. There's a fine line and the alpha male knows just how to take his woman, yet not let her lose herself. He wants her strong. He wants her to keep her fire.
In my contemporary erotic romance Blood Vows Book One-The Vendetta, the hero, Alessandro Dardano is the ultimate alpha. This wealthy Italian stallion is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Brianna O'Reiley.
True, their rival mafia families have been trying to kill each other for over fifty years, but he's alpha enough not to let that stand in his way!
Brianna might have a thing or two or three to say about that but she can't deny that Alessandro makes her feel things no other man ever has. Their passion sets them both ablaze and makes her willing to toss all caution to the wind. Not that she's going to make it easy on him. Oh no. Brianna will fight him every step of the way.
But funny how a lot of those fights end up in the bedroom, where neither of them ever loses!
Blood Vows Book One
The O’Reiley’s and the Dardano families have always despised each other, turning New York City into a war zone and dividing the loyalties of the biggest families in organized crime. When mob princess Brianna O’Reiley’s husband is murdered under the patriarch Bernardo Dardano’s orders, she vows vengeance on the family that has destroyed hers.
Trying to regroup after her loss, Brianna leaves her young son William with her family and leaves the city to spend some time alone. A snow storm blows in and she crashes into another car on the road. Both she and the other driver are unharmed and take shelter from the storm where Brianna allows herself for just one night, to forget her tragedy in this stranger’s arms.
They part, neither knowing the other’s identity only to discover in a cruel twist of fate that the passionate stranger who helped her through her grief is none other than Alessandro Dardano, the eldest son of Bernardo, returned to New York from running his father’s business overseas to now take his place as Bernardo’s successor.
And Brianna is now pregnant with his child.
