The Alpha’s Promise – by Renee Rose

Renee Rose is here with her book, The Alpha’s Promise!

By Renee Rose

I love a bad boy hero. There’s something just so satisfying when a tough, buff and tattooed alpha male falls hard for the heroine.  In my new release The Alpha’s Promise, I have a dirty sex-talking bad boy shifter, who has been charged with protecting an uppity, sassy human. As you might imagine, the sparks fly.

Here’s a little taste,
“You’re the one who offered me pack protection. If you weren’t always such a smug, cocky bastard, I might have shown a little more gratitude.”
The corners of his mouth twitched.
Her heart jumped around in her chest while she watched his gaze turn from scalding to smoldering—with a different kind of heat. “I don’t need your thanks,” he muttered and reached for her nape yanking her in to claim her mouth, just as he’d done in the middle of the mall. She closed her eyes and melted into the kiss, which was no less violent or consuming than the last one.
One of his hands slid down her back and gripped her ass, squeezing and pulling her hips against him. He wedged one leg between her thighs, and her hips rocked down to rub her clit against it.
She moaned.
“That’s it, baby, keep up that sexy moaning.” He bit her ear, teeth grazed her jaw before he returned to fuck her mouth with his tongue.
She rolled her pelvis up and down on his thigh, the stimulation against her clit driving her mad.
He lowered and curled his forearm under her ass, lifting her easily to straddle his waist. She looped her arms around his neck, lips still twisting over his in a desperate dance.
She knew it was a bad idea. She didn’t want to get into a relationship with another bad boy like Cody. But since the moment he’d first grabbed her in her bedroom closet, she’d been fighting the attraction. Maybe if she just let things ride, the tension would ease between them. It didn’t mean she had to be in a relationship with him.
Cody lifted her higher and bit her breast. She shrieked at the pain and violence of it, wondering if he’d left a mark. “Shirt off, Melissa.”
Not a request. A command.


After one loser boyfriend too many, Melissa Bell swore she was done with bad boys, but when her ex puts her life in danger it is a buff, tattooed, dirty-talking alpha shifter who shows up to save her. More disturbing still, her rescuer makes it clear that he regards Melissa’s safety as his personal responsibly, and defying his instructions soon earns her an embarrassing spanking. Though she should be furious, her body’s reaction to the tough, handsome wolf’s stern dominance demands more.
It doesn’t take long for Cody to wish he’d never made an alpha’s promise to protect Melissa, yet for some reason he can barely control himself around her. His inner wolf craves the beautiful human in spite of her snobbish attitude and constant sass, and when she is writhing over his knee, it is all he can do not to mark her and mate her right then and there.
Each moment he spends with the alluring, feisty girl only increases his hunger for her, but Cody promised himself long ago that he would never take a human as his mate. Will his pride push Melissa away forever, just when he realizes he can’t live without her?

Welcome to Day 1 of the Spanking Blog Challenge.


So what is an Alpha Male? Is he a big, brawny man that makes other men back away from him? No, I don’t think so. There are alpha males that aren’t big and brawny.

Is he the kind of guy who pushes his way through a crowd of people to get where he’s going? No, that’s not it either. That would just be rude. An alpha male has self-confidence and he doesn’t have to push his way through. He can simply walk through a crowd saying, “Pardon me,” or “Excuse me,” and the people will let him pass.

So what qualities are these that make both men and women recognize the alpha male when they meet him? Self-confidence is probably the main one but should not be confused with cocky. The alpha knows what he wants and he usually gets it. But he gets what he wants without being a bully, without lying and cheating, without stealing and hurting other people. There’s an aura about the alpha male that make others recognize that he is a leader, this is someone who can solve the problem, this is someone who will step in and take charge of the situation and make sure it is handled efficiently.

The alpha male is strong. Not necessarily physically strong (though many are) but mentally strong.  They’re ambitious and want to win all challenges. There’s a certain charisma about them that draws women to them.  And not just women, but other men. People like a leader and let’s face it, most people are followers, not leaders.

He’s not weak, arrogant, or conceited. He may be vain, he may be proud, he may be tolerant. But tolerant doesn’t mean he’ll take your crap. He’ll listen to your ideas and if they’re good ones, he may choose to use them. But if he doesn’t see the value in your ideas or plans, he’ll come right out and say so.

Of course, all alphas don’t display all of the same characteristics. What about your man? Which of these traits does he have?
