My Top Five Alpha Heroes

By Christina Bauer

As part of the launch tour for my new book, LINCOLN, the lovely folks at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures have asked me to list my top five alpha heroes. (Honestly, they asked for ten but I got blabby, so it’s five.) That said, all my alpha favourites share certain characteristics: they are honest, protective, passionate, and noble.

So with that prelude, behold my top 5!

Alpha Hero Number Five

Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because DUH.

Alpha Hero Number Four

Robin Hood from folklore … although I’d like to imagine hooking up with him before he got to living in the woods. Camping is not my bag. Neither is cleaning up after lots of stinky men. So Sir Lord In A Castle Robin Hood, yeah!!!

Alpha Hero Number Three 

King Arthur (also from folklore) and if he were with yours truly, I’d keep my skirts down (you know I’m talking about you and Lancelot, Guinevere!)

Alpha Hero Number Two

Odysseus from Greco-Roman myth. He gets points for being super-clever as well as for hauling his ass home over ten years. That said, he then loses points for getting most of his men killed and also nailing Circe, but on the whole, he makes the list. Mitigating factor: Ten years is a long time and Circe was a witch, so there.

Alpha Hero Number One

Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien. For the record, I’m talking the pre-Viggo version here: a rough and un-pretty dude from the original text. Yet he’s also so protective, dedicated and gritty, YES!

Thanks SO MUCH for asking me to stop by—I had a blast making this list. I look forward to returning on a future tour!

***Experience the events of Angelbound from Prince Lincoln’s point of view…And then enjoy an all-new part of his story!***

When it comes to fighting demons, Prince Lincoln is the greatest warrior in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet…and it’s not on a traditional battlefield.

Lincoln is falling in love. And the girl is part demon.

Between a fated dance at the Ryder mansion…a life-changing walk through a hedgerow maze…and a massive battle with none other than the King of Hell…Lincoln realizes that he wants to share his life with Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
