The alpha male I've chosen to feature is Étienne d'Alençon, hero of Darkness Rises, Immortal Guardians Book 4. He's a dark, dangerous, and powerful immortal. He hunts vampires and kicks ass on a nightly basis. And he adores strong women. So when he sees mortal Krysta Linz take on four vampires with only a couple of shoto swords, Étienne is instantly smitten. Now, if he can only find a way to convince her that not everyone with fangs and glowing eyes is the enemy . . .
Here's a brief excerpt. I'll preface it by mentioning that Étienne is telepathic. :-)

A low chuckle wafted on the night.
Eyes widening, she drew her second sword and turned in a slow circle. "Damn it! Show yourself!"
"Well, since you asked so nicely," a deep voice laced with a French accent purred behind her.
Gasping, she spun around and swung a shoto.
Once more, he caught her wrist. "Careful." The warning was gentle, carrying neither malice nor anger.
His touch sent electricity tickling its way up her arm. His flesh was warm, his long fingers free of callouses.
Her heart slammed against her ribs as butterflies erupted in her stomach. She should be furious. Frightened. Instead, she felt as excited as she would on a first date.
Stepping back, she withdrew her arm from his grasp.
Dropping his hand, he tilted his head and studied her with those entrancing amber eyes.
Yeah, he was hot all right.
Short midnight hair glinted in the moonlight. Faint stubble shadowed a strong jaw. Straight nose. Broad shoulders. What was clearly a well-developed, muscular build beneath a black T-shirt that clung to him courtesy of the vampire blood that saturated its front. Slim waist. Slim hips. All revealed by the gap in the long black coat he wore.
She didn't let her gaze stray further. The last thing she wanted to do while facing him was blush like a school girl if he had a nice package.
His tempting lips stretched in a slow smile.
