Krystal Shannan's Stop on the Alpha Male Blog Hop

Alpha Male Blog Hop is here!!!

What kind of hero do you like?


Sexy, delicious, alpha heros! What could be better than that? 

So for me... I like tall, dark hair, deep brown eyes, maybe a little five-o-clock shadow and abs you can bounce a nickel off! Can I mention the abs again, they are superbly important. I also like a Dominant personality with a streak of kink :-) 

I'm pretty sure I just described the hero in my new book, LOL.

This is a superbly fantastic day for me. On top of the blog hop, my very first book releases today! 


Pool of Souls Series

Long ago the Titans ruled the world. When their children took power, most Titans were killed or banished forever. Aphrodite was the only Titan allowed to coexist on Mt. Olympus with the new greek gods and goddesses. She was allowed to stay, because like it or not, she could not be banished or killed without destroying the entire human race.

Before Gaia disappeared deep into a secret part of the earth, she brought Aphrodite out of the sea, creating her from a piece of her murdered husband. She connected her daughter to humanity so intrinsically that Aphrodite could never be lost. Her precious daughter would be treasured and revered by humanity for all eternity as the Goddess of Love.

Aphrodite balances human love and passion. Her mother gifted her with the ability to track soul mates through the centuries and guide the immortal souls of humans to their eternal mates. Gaia also gave her a special pool to house and keep the soul mates safe.

These are her stories... 

OPEN HOUSE: Pool of Souls Book 1

Picture

Intrinsically woven into the fabric of human existence, Aphrodite, Titan Goddess of Love and Passion, dedicates herself to matching soul mates.

Rebecca Carol and Robert Corvin missed their original chance to bond when Ares, God of War, took control of Robert's career ten years ago. Their souls have naturally pulled them back together for a second chance at love, but...How far will the gods go to get their own way?

Will divine influence create another perfect match or will it tear them apart forever?


Want to meet the hero of Open House: Pool of Souls?


Here he is! Meet Robert Corvin. Isn't he just scrumptious? Well, Rebecca thinks so too. So don't get too handsy *wink*. Here's a couple of my favorite snippets.

***


     Rebecca opened the bag of takeout and handed Robert his box of lo mein while she went looking for her edamame and salt. She grabbed a mini eggroll and popped it into her mouth. The fried crispy pork and veggie flavors were heaven in her mouth. She moaned in satisfaction. The beans were at the bottom of the sack. She pulled out the box and popped open the little container of salt.

“Good?” Robert asked before shoveling a bite of noodles into his mouth.
“Delicious. Want one?” Rebecca held out another mini egg roll. Robert shook his head. She shrugged and popped it into her mouth as well. He chuckled.
“What if I changed my mind?”
      “It’s too late now, genius; I swallowed it.” Rebecca laughed and broke open an edamame bean. She licked the salt off the pod and sucked the three little soybeans into her mouth. When she glanced up from her food, she couldn’t help but smirk. Robert had frozen in place, chopsticks midway to his mouth, and was just watching her eat. His brown eyes had darkened, and he was looking at her as though she were dinner instead of the lo mein. 

***

Rebecca raised herself up on her elbows and tried to look through the opening into the dining room, but he was out of sight. She could hear bags rustling and smiled when he returned with the comforter set they had picked out for the master bedroom.
“I think this will do quite nicely.” His huge, adorable grin made her insides melt. She nodded and sat up on the edge of the counter. He gazed at her, his eyes sweeping from the tips of her toes up to her eyes.
Rebecca started when he grabbed her suddenly and gently threw her over his shoulder. His arm was wrapped around her bare thighs, while his hand rested very casually on one cheek.
“Robert!”
“Yes, Rebecca?” He continued walking through the kitchen and then into the living room. She shook her hair from her face and saw the comforter bag swinging from his other hand.
“How is it that I am completely naked while you haven’t shed even one stitch of clothing?”
“Because you were dinner, Rebecca.”
A snort escaped, mixing with her laughter. “Remind me to have dinner with you more often. I have been missing out.”
     “You? What about me?”

  56. Greetings,

    Doing the Alpha Male blog hop….oh yeah! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! Wow, 200+ authors---a perfect opportunity to meet new authors! It’s always fun trying to visit as many sites as possible.

    I love alpha heroes who are take charge men! They are loyal, loving and caring men. They usually have looks, brains, money and a commanding presence that draws people. When they find their mates and fall in love they will move heaven and earth to stake their claim. This is exciting to watch even when they are not sure why they have to have or be with this particular person. An awesome love dance! It’s definitely addicting to read.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some great prizes.
