The Alpha Dragon

You don’t get much more alpha than a two thousand year old half dragon. Tal O’Duirwood is just such an alpha male. In the modern world he’s an enforcer for the Coalition of Magical Creatures. He’s a no-nonsense guy who’s not afraid of racking up a body count, and at the same time he manages to keep his people safe. Over his long life, he’s spent a lot of that time alone. Although he’s had lovers from time to time, enjoying the company of everything from humans to vampires and werewolves, he never found anyone who could hold his attention until he came to Yellow Sky, Texas.

Sent there on assignment to help a witch and her coven defeat a vampire horde intent on taking over the city, Tal loses himself in Alex Carlson, a twenty something mage. For the first time in many centuries, the dragon discovers what it means to not be alone. The lighter caring side that he thought long since buried comes out as he struggles to keep his new love and their friends alive.

Tal is the best there is in an alpha male, he’s strong, courageous, sexy as all get out, while at the same time being compassionate to those closest to him. He can be dangerous when the situation calls for it, and at the same time loving when the danger is past. This dragon is someone you long for, but know you can never have as his heart belongs to Alex.

    I love the idea of a dragon and witch story…adding to my TBR list :)


  3. I love Alpha men, because I need someone as confident and dominant as me to have an equal relationship – I hate the feeling that my partner is less powerful than me and cannot make it without me.

    And: my favourite Alpha male is Gabriel from Annette Curtis Klause’s Blood and Chocolate.

  4. I love everything about Alphas! Awesome Blog Hop!

  10. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!

  11. I’m intrigued as I have yet to meet a dragon alpha. Sounds so powerful.

    Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It’s all in the heart…..alpha males are the best!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!
