The problem with having an alpha male brother

I’ve got a new gig blogging once a week about contemporary romance at The Season.

Check out my first post, about all the ways my macho brother has ruined romance for me. (And yes, he could have posed for the cover of the Bella Andre novel in the post. Sickening, isn’t it?)

Even better, Bev’s giving away a copy of Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism. I can’t tell you how I wish I were eligible!


  1. You crack me up. And again, you shy away from a rich resource for your writing–bad, bad girl. Having seen a “SEAL in training” I’d think that would provide endless opportunities to show the other side of the Alpha. I don’t care how macho a guy is, there’s still a kid lurking inside somewhere, and since you’ve seen it first hand, you can add a whole new layer to your alpha characters. Or not. Either way, I can sense your pride in him. I hope he does, too.

    1. I mostly hope he never sees this post, Kaki. He might blush under all those muscles.

      Maybe one day I’ll write a truly alpha hero. I love the idea of seeing his other side. But these days I’m surrounded by British charity workers. Not an alpha in the bunch.

  2. omg i liked your blog better than the pirates of penzance! and if you’re not a Pretty Woman fan what i mean is you made me nearly pee my pants – too funny Kat.

    So you’re telling me Charles and the two Marks aren’t alpha enough for you? Jeez you’re hard to please 😉

    1. To stop myself from getting into trouble, I think I’ll plead the fifth on that, Sarah. And if you’re not a U.S.-Constitution fan, that means I’m keeping my mouth well shut.
