All right you green hottie! Ryan Reynolds is on the Column of Manliness! (Is anyone else picturing an echoing voice over when I write "Column of Manliness"? If not, you should. It makes it way cooler)
I'm working on a post next about the traits of alpha men in romance novels. My third book's hero is a little different than the last two I've created (who were very clearly alpha, especially Marcelo, but yum, right?). Cristian is actually a werewolf pack alpha, but he doesn't display the traits in the same way. One of my critique partners brought it to my attention, that he's redefining the alpha role a little bit.
So I want to get more in depth about that and get your opinion. What makes an alpha? (Don't answer yet. Wait till I post tomorrow)
