SARAH CASTILLE—WRITING ALPHA MALES




Sarah Castille has a new release. You may remember Sarah’s visit to Over Coffee in 2013 where she talked about being a contest whore and the vital feedback and lessons learned and applied to her writing. I loved her article. She’s come a long way since her first release two years ago. Big congratulations to Sarah for making both New York Times and USA Today bestseller’s list!
Sarah writes steamy romances. She writes contemporary erotic romance featuring the world of MMA in her Redemption and Club Excelsior series, erotic romance suspense in her Legal Heat series, and contemporary romance with her Sinners Tribe Motorcyle Club series. Her heroes are tough but they’re the good guys and her heroines are strong enough to tame them.

Her romances usually center on über alpha males. In her April 9, 2015 interview with USA Today, she explains what’s attractive about such males.
“...for all his blustering and swagger, the punishing kisses and the bossy behavior, the über alpha romance male is a good guy, a strong man, a leader and protector, respected for his passion in everything he does. Although he will never talk about his feelings, he will never be cruel or physically harm the heroine. At heart, he has the same needs and fears, desires and motivations as other men. He has a lot to give and an über capacity to love...”
In her Redemption series she writes about the world of mixed martial arts. Sarah had to do some serious research to portray the MMA world accurately and be able to put her readers in that world. One of the things she did, in her research, was shadow and interview MMA athletes. She did an interview with the Calgary Herald, where she talks about that experience.

Sarah’s latest book in Redemption series, Full Contact, was released April 7, 2015.

                                                                                                                                                                                                         

When you can’t resist the one person who could destroy you…

Sia O'Donnell can’t help but push the limits. She secretly attends every underground MMA fight featuring The Predator, the undisputed champion. When he stalks his prey in the ring, Sia is mesmerized. He is dominant and dangerous and every instinct tells her to run.
 
Every beautiful thing Ray “The Predator” touches he knows he’ll eventually destroy. Soft, sweet and innocent, Sia is the light to Ray's darkness—and completely irresistible. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows he’s going to have to put his dark past behind him to win her body and soul. EXCERPT

Recovering lawyer, karate practitioner, and caffeine addict, Sarah Castille worked and traveled abroad before trading her briefcase and stilettos for a handful of magic beans and a home near the Canadian Rockies. Her steamy, contemporary romantic tales feature blazingly hot alpha heroes and the women who tame them.

***NOTE***
I will be working the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Cure-a-thon today and we'll be very busy with calls so I'll be a bit scarce during that time.

Congratulations to Sarah. Don't think I quite qualify as an alpha male. Except in my own house of course.

Thanks very much to Sia for hosting me today. You were the inspiration for the name of the heroine in Full Contact! And thanks everyone for your comments!

Why thank you Sarah! Not many with the name Sia out there. There is a european singer named Sia, but I had my name longer than she's been alive, lol!

I'm so very proud to see your success and I'm wish even more!

I've been doing MMA for almost 10 years now and never considered any of it sexy. It is fun, though. And a great workout. A great many of the guys I train with are respected leaders... the other half are douchebags. But I guess not all alphas are created equal. Never stopped to think what I am. Guess I never cared. :)
