An apology and a contest!

First of all, if you've written to me in the past two weeks and I haven't responded please resend the email...for some reason most of my mail was dumping into my junk file and being deleted...sigh. I think I have it straightened out now.

Second, another contest...yeah :)

If you'd like to win an ARC for Darkness Unleashed just tell me your favorite male character from any book...I know it's hard to decide, okay impossible, but just one of your favorites!

Mine would probably be Ranger from the Plum books. Or Eric. Or Wrath. Or Rhett Butler. Or...

I'll post the winner on Friday!!


Good luck,
Alex

My favorite male character isRoarke from J.D. Robb's (Nora Roberts ;) ) In Death series. I just love how he loves Eve *sigh* .

kate t. said...

it's a tie for first as far as my favorite character in a book is concerned... when i first read about your styx i absolutely fell in love with the man/vampire :D. he's gorgeous and mysterious, but not when it comes to his love for darcy... in that he knows what he wants and isn't afraid to make it known. then i read acheron (from sherrilynn kenyon's book, acheron) and fell in love with him too. what can i say, i love my men tall, dark, and complicated. gorgeous with long dark hair helps a lot too. :D

Jessica said...

My favorite would be Valentin Jaus from the Darkyn Series by Lynn Viehl.

Raonaid Luckwell said...

* Sheepish* My favorite male from any book. Hehe. My friends know of my obsession for Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dev Peltier. They even made me a bear from build a bear and dressed him up.

kate t. said...

and then of course, in second place comes viper (and i swear i'm not sucking up, these men truly are my favorites) but styx will always hold a very strong place in my heart.

Stephanie*magic* said...

Hey Alex! How ya doing?
I think that's a very hard question!!!!
But I think Acheron will always have my heart! :D
Cant wait for your next book hon!
Wishing you all the best!
*hugs*

Cindy said...

Edward Cullen. Not Robert Pattinson. He and Styx are on my dream island...along with Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and Lestat. Thanks, Cindy

My favorite character is Zsadist from The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward

Chamane said...

Kathy got to Roarke first (darn!) so I will have to go with Charles from Patricia Briggs Alpha and Omega series. Love those exotic men!

My favorite male character hands down is Zsadist from Lover Awakened by J. R. Ward. There is so much about the book and the depth of the character that is revealed. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Bella kisses Zsadist and he has to admit it is his very first kiss. And one of my favorite quotes is about Zaasist from the book Dark Lover "But then, in a high,keening call, one voice broke out, lifting above the others, shooting higer and higher. The sound of the tenor was so clear, so pure, it brought shivers to the skin, a yearning warmth to the chest. The sweet notes blew the ceiling off with their glory, turning the chamber into a cathedral, the Brothers into a tabemacle.....
The scarred one, the soulless one, had a voice of an angel".

My fav male character is Adam Black from KMM's Highlander series. He is 1 hell of a sinful Fae. As stated on the back cover as a BEWARE, he's a 'lethally seductive alpha male of immense strength & dark eroticism’…JUST HOW I LIKE HIM, ‘do not look at him'...,R U NUTS, Y NOT?, 'do not touch him'...U BET I WILL...,'do not be tempted'..., PLSE DO, & 'do not be seduced'...YA BABY! *LOL* Good Luck every1!

All I can say is you all have excellent taste in heroes :)

filifelicia said...

wow this is soooo hard ummmmmmm I know this might sound a little ridiculus but I really like the boy eragon in the book, not the movie. I also like this one character named marshall in a book called this present darkness. He is probably in his forties but he represents the struggles between right and wrong and he overcomes temptations that could ruin him. unfortunatly this book is really not about the supernatural and he is not a vampire but still he is a wonderful rolemodel and person. With your books Alex I would have to say viper is my favorite but Jagr at this point in time untill I read your next book is coming fairly close behind him.

Carmen R said...

My fav is Doyle from LK Hamilton's Merry Gentry series

Cecile said...

Besides your delicious men.... =)

My favorite male character would have to be Lindsay from Charlotte Featherstone's Addicted. Oh My Gosh... he is such a tortured hero. I love him!!!

Shela said...

Oh my, this will be difficult...

It's a three way tie right now between Maddox from Gena Showalter's The Darkest Night, Dageus MacKeltar from Karen Moning's The Dark Highlander, and Rory MacLeod from Monica McCarty's Highlander Untamed. These men are so so so amazing.

OMG, that's sooo hard! i can';t pick just one...but here goes:

~Styxx from Ms. Ivy
~Wrath from JR Ward
~Gregori from Christine Feehan
~Lucan from Lara Adrian
~Acheron from Sherrilyn kenyon
~Roarke from JD Robb

And that's just a few, but I actually like most if not all the heros from these authors.

Razlover's Book Blog said...

It's hard for me to pick just one so here's my list:

1. Zarek from Sherrilyn Kenyon
2. Zsadist from J.R. Ward
3. Steve Morgan from Rosemary Rogers
4. Roarke from J.D. Robb
5. Ranger from Janet Evanovich

Carpathian Queen said...

MMM
Devil from Devil's bride - Stephanie Laurens
Zsadist from Lover Awakened - JR Ward
Mikhail from Dark Prince - Christine Feehan
Saint from London's perfect scoundrel - Suzanne Enoch

And I'm really looking forward to Salvatore's story... He can make it to that list too, but of course... story has to be written first lol

Cats Meow said...

I think this might be the hardest question to ask a Romance junkie. Hmmmmmm. I think I adore every one of male characters mentioned so far. I guess I would have to say all of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld. All have been introduced in her stories so far. They all have their own demons to bear, but I think Paris and Torin (who haven't had their HEAs yet) are the most tortured. Oh yeah, I can't for Levet. He's SO funny.

Jackie said...

Oh wow. I have lots of male characters that I Love, but my absolute favorite is by far Rhage, from J.R.Ward's Lover Eternal. He may have Hollywood looks where I prefer more rugged, down to earth,but man, is he sweat, and careing, and sexy....okay, I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. lol
Rhage owns my heart completely.

LynnMarie said...

Hhmmmmm.......if i have to chose just one,....i guess it would have to be Dara Joy's Rejar.

Wendy said...

I find I like almost all of the males Roberts' creates but I have to go with Roarke as my favorite.

Heather said...

I fell in love with Mr. Darcy when I first read Pride and Prejudice, but he's got competition from Dageus MacKelter from Karen Marie Moning's Dark Highlander. He's hot, dark, seductive and a little dangerous.

May said...

It is very hard to choose just one hero. The most obvious would be Roarke since I met him two times a year. However, this year I really love The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie by Jennifer Ashley. So I would select Ian MacKenzie.

Sabrina said...

Even though you already named him, Mine is Wrath from J.R. Ward's brotherhood books. Who wouldn't want him YUMMMMMMM. lol

Sherry said...

I am so tossed on whom to choose seeing that I fall in love with every character I read about. They are all my favorite...it's a tie between Styx and Wrath....both of them are leaders of their clans... and are described to be so deliciously exciting....I wish I could get my hands on them both...

Arleen said...

Vishous, Vishous, Vishous from Lover Unbound by JR Ward!! I just re-read his book (for the
11th time) and spent my Sunday crying over him and Jane. I can't drink hot chocolate and not cry :(

Vishous MINE

Cybercliper said...

Wow, nothing like a hard question to start the week!! I've more favorites than I can count, but I'll single out Nalini Singh's Vaughn D'Angelo, a jaguar Changeling wtih a major attitude and a thirst for blood...((sigh))

confed4life122189 said...

It's so hard to choose. But I guess if I had to choose one, then my favorite male character would be Aeron from The Lords of the Underworld. A sexy demon with wings is my kind of dream man.

wyld2s said...

Of course I adore J.R. Ward's Zsadist-okay-I love all of J.R. Ward's brothers!I also love Jeaniene Frost's Bones. Alexandra Ivy's Viper. Larissa Ione's Eidolon. Rachel Vincent's Marc. BUT- my all time favorite HAS to be Sherrilyn Kenyon's Vane Kattalakis from Night Play. He is so dreamy and that first encounter in her shop *sigh* he is so wonderful with her!

arwen_adora said...

Hiya Alex! *jumping up and down*!!!
I have officially caught up on alex/DR books! Unfortunately "Alex" books aren't in ANY local places! so AMAZON is my friend! YAY!!! so excited!!! both alex/dr pre-orders are done too! Best xmas gift ever!!! Anywho...fav male, that is hard to choose. VIPER is of course mr.iwishhewasrealandwoulddigme, I would happily take most of the males from Stephanie Meyer's TWILIGHT universe. There's something about Rain Tairen Soul (from the LORD OF THE FADING LANDS)...I like the 'pet names' they have and BOY do they have passion! Those are a few. Most leading men with gruff exteriors and hearts of gold melt me! haha! Thanks for running the contest! :)

Rose, cambio y fuera. said...

So mean!! just one favorite?? Well... I have to say my fav character is Styx, by far *sigh* He's just... so.. *lost in her imagination* Ok, who wouldn't like him?? He's the freaking king of vampires!! He so stron, and powerful and totally loyal to his brothers
HE'S PERFECT!!

Shel said...

I'm with you - it's Ranger hands down. Love him!

kate t. said...

another favorite male character of mine is shade from desire unchained by larissa ione. i love bikers... ones with long dark hair and tattoos especially :D. and i love his cocky attitude... he had this way of always saying or doing things that made my mouth hang open in shock and awe (for example, there was this one scene at the beginning of the book where his ex-girlfriend runa is trying to wake him up and he says, "i'm awake, baby, i'm awake. climb on, i'll catch up." that's my absolute favorite line that i ever read in any book.) and underneath that cocky attitude is a sweet, loyal, caring guy who makes your heart melt.

Stacy said...

I'm really loving Circenn Brodey from Karen Marie Monings Highlander series.

Buffy Christopher said...

Your supposed to make us tell you are favorite character from your books! LOL My favorite character is well recently Eric from Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse books. He's so sneaky and devious. I just love him. Oh and yummy. Who would want a blond built Viking I mean really? The was he tricked Sookie in the last book with the knife, Classic Eric. I laughed my ass off. He's so good at being bad.

Caren said...

After thinking about this question, I realized it is whoever I am currently reading about. I like to live in the moment. Although there are certain characters that will stay with me always (usually every night in my dreams). The top 3 being Styx (Alexandra Ivy), Acheron and Valerius (Sherrilyn Kenyon - Dark Hunter Series).

Vorpaks said...

Quentin Chandler and Roland Otton by Patricia Veryan.

The Duke of Avon, Lord John (Masqueraders) and GILLY, Duke of Sale (he is so adorable), by Georgette Heyer.

Mac Booke, Nora Roberts

Rhage, JR Ward

Okay... this could go on for a REALLY long time.

Alexandra Ivy said...

Ah yes. I love the Heyer men :) And of course Kenyon. And Robb. And Moning. And Rogers....

Mmmmm

Amy Huber said...

This is going to kill me.

For my favorite Guardian, I love
Viper (although if it wasn't for the height issue, I'd totally be a Levet girl).

* Phin Tucker in Welcome to Temptation (Jennifer Crusie).

* And (OF COURSE) Curran in the Kate Daniels series!!!

(but I'm seriously thinking that Cindy's desert island concept is a keeper)

Smokinhotbooks said...

Well aside from your HAWT charcters *cough* my all time fav male character has to be Barrons from Karen Marie Monings Fae series. I'm a little shall I say a tad obessed with him. If I was in high school you might find Barrons w/ a heart drawn around the name on my binder. Alas I'm older and now just stalk KMM forums for upcoming tid bits about him *grin*

Viper is def a runner up though!!!!

Paula said...

Okay I have a few.
First, gotta love Viper.
Zsadist from the BDB
Wraith from Larissa Ione
Rio and Dante from Lara Adrian
and my favorite of all is
Cadeon from Kresley Cole's IAD series. Gotta love that demon.

Peggy M. said...

Hi,

I find it very hard to say one name. If the man is a Scot or a demon or a vampire and very gorgeous and dark .... then I love him ;o)

Mickie said...

Totally impossible to decide, so I guess I'll go with Acheron from Kenyon's Dark-hunter series. Probably on my mind more recently since I just finished her latest a few weeks ago.

Jamie said...

It is so hard to decide who is my fav.. .. but i would have to say it would be Styx. i love that vamp. i love his streingth. his take charge. but when it came to the love of his life, there was nothing he would not do for her. ummmmm. . .i would love to find a Styx of my own. we could only hope. heheheheh

patsy-sue said...

mmmm.. Zsadist will always own my heart but I would not mind having a little bit of Aiden from the dark series as well.

patsy b.

Anika said...

That is a tough question... there are just so many great characters out there! I, too, love J.R. Ward's brothers. And I think my favourite one (although not a brother in the strictest sense) is Rehvenge. Apparently I like my (fictional) men dangerous and morally ambiguous but with a good heart. Not sure what that says about me. *g*

Deb830 said...

So many to choose from...
I would have to say Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Her dark hunter series is what really got me into the paranormal romance books. LOVE THEM!!!

deb ;0)

donnav said...

Vishous and Quinn because they are both such bad boys with hearts of gold.

Alexandra Ivy said...

Amazing...we all have such insanely wonderful taste in heroes :)

Lizzielvr said...

I am smitten with Dante. It has to be the whole pirate persona. I never really thought much about pirates, but the way you describe him, the earrings and everything else...so hot. Also, I love his book cover, the one eye looking at you...sexy as hell...

MEMORIES said...

Zsadist....Lover Awakened.

jenyfer said...

My favorite male character would have to be Rhage from the black dagger brotherhood series. He willingly took his curse of the dragon to stay with him for eternity as well as never getting to see his beloved mary again in order to save her life. I thought that was one of the most selfless things a man could ever do in order to save the life of his soulmate.
