What makes alpha males so sexy? #TinaDonahueBooks #AlphaMales #EroticRomance

The obvious answer to the question of what makes alpha males sexy is their commanding presence and hot looks.Who can resist a bad boy with a face and bod to die for who easily sweeps the heroine off her feet?

However, for me, the most important qualities an alpha male can have is to not only be commanding but cherishing. A great sense of humor is vital too.

I don’t know about anyone else, but if even if the hottest guy snarled orders and tried to tell me what to do, he wouldn’t be long for planet earth. That’s not sexy. It’s not love. A real man isn’t afraid to be tender even if he can chew nails and spit tacks.

Give me a fun guy who’s comfortable in his own skin. To me that’s as alpha as a man can get, and that’s how I picture and write my heroes.

This month I have a new release – Wicked Seduction, book two in my Wicked Brand series – so buckle your seatbelt and hang on, it’s gonna be a sexy ride.

Wicked Seduction – hot tattoo artists find love in West Palm Beach, Florida. Erotic Contemporary Romance.

What are your fave movie kisses? #TinaDonahueBooks #Romance #EroticRomance

There’s something about the verbal foreplay and longing looks resulting in a kiss that makes my blood sing. Getting that passion on the page is so freaking hard when movies make it seem so easy. There’s the music, the lighting, the slightly blurred backgrounds, the CGI adding to the magic. Plus really good looking people.
Unfortunately, all an author has is words. Sometimes that doesn’t quite cut it on SM where pictures are definitely worth a thousand words.
Recently, Entangled Publishing had a FB party for its Scorched authors. The theme was fave movie kisses. These are the ones I came up with to celebrate the release of  Wicked Takeover, book one in my Wicked Brand series.
 
Enjoy!
 
1. SWEET KISSES – Aw, they don’t get better than Lady and the Tramp.
This scene is so cute and says so much with the shy look Lady gives the Tramp and the roguish sparkle in his eyes. Ah, romance. My first taste of an Alpha male.
 


via GIPHY

2. SOULFUL KISSES – Hmm – this scene in Ghost makes my legs weak. I love the slow burn in a story. Soulful gazes, an unexpected touch… The world stops, colors and sounds fade.

In Wicked Takeover, Dante and Lauren’s first kiss begins
when she tells him he can’t date the clients at the tattoo parlor she owns. She wants him so much and can’t stand seeing him with other women. He knows she’s burning as badly for him as he is for her, so he does what any red-blooded guy would do – he corners her against the wall and asks her who she would like him to date?
 
I’ll let them tell the rest…
 
She glanced to the side, her face pensive, the way a person looks when determining what to say or do.
Dante didn’t move. Hell, he didn’t even breathe.
Lauren regarded him.
He waited.
On a longing sigh, she ran her fingers through his hair and brought his mouth down to hers.


via GIPHY

3, THE CLASSIC KISSES – no one has to tell them how to do it.
They wrote the freaking book.

What I like most about this scene in Casablanca is the way Bogart and Bergman drink each other in before kissing. There’s no rush. No ‘bam, bam, thank you ma’am.’ That wasn’t allowed way back when. Writers and directors had to capitalize on passion, two hearts and souls touching each other, fulfilling their need to be one. Wow.


via GIPHY

4. THE MOST ADVENTUROUS KISSES – LOL, gotta try this one

Who else but Spiderman and his lady love would come up with something like this? Every time I see this scene their kiss makes me smile. My romances have humor in them. I love a guy with a wicked sense of fun and who loves adventure. Like what Dante and Lauren do on a carousel in Wicked Takeover. I’m still grinning about that one.


via GIPHY

5.  PASSION RULES KISSES – get me a fan and a cold drink

I love this scene from Fifty Shades of Grey! You know he’s dying for her, no matter what he says or how he acts. She brought him to
his knees. All I can say is, “You go, girl!” Teach that man what you want.

Featuring Make Me Breathless by Tina Donahue – contemporary menage

Blurb:

These rugged cowboys know what they want…the biker chick who just became their neighbor.

When Ally inherits a Texas ranch, she’s not about to trade in her Harley for a horse or a cow. However, she is taken with the McCrays, two deliciously virile cousins who own the adjoining land. Lucas and Colt are a hundred percent male whether they’re working their property or stripping to skin to cool off in the creek. Maybe it’s time to meet her neighbors.

Colt’s never known a woman like Ally, sultry yet vulnerable and totally clueless when it comes to ranching. Hell, what kind of man would he be if he didn’t offer to help? Lucas feels the same. Both guys want to give her some fun, Texas style. Long, hard, and thorough.

Ally’s certainly game for a good time, yet the sweetest surprise is what follows.
