Meet Chase Sanders, Alpha Male! 

I love alpha males! I cut my teeth on Harlequin Presents, with those alphas that dominated the pages and made their little English women shiver with desire. Now I love putting some serious alpha-attitude down on the pages. My first alpha in the Spy Games series is the dark and dangerous Chase Sanders, in charge of an office of secret agents that can go deeper and harder after the bad guys of the world. 

More about Chase: 

Birthdate: July 15  Age: 31
Sign: Cancer
Height: 6' 1"
Looks Like: Daniel Villa, model 

Yes, he's a super spy boss, but he wasn't always one!  He's a team player but would rather be in charge. He's a former SEAL and was the sniper for his team. He was honorably discharged due to injuries, though he's not proud of the fact. He hates cats. He loves to cook French food and bakes awesome cakes. He owns a '65 Mustang Shelby, and his best friend, Jake Anderson, covets it. He loves nothing more than making a woman beg while bound, and a menage with Jake is the ultimate high for him. He's manipulative, cold and dominant when it serves him. But  he's got a mushy inner core and Kate knows how to get to it! 

A Super Alpha Excerpt: 

Chase needs to be in control at all times, and unfortunately, Kate is the first person to make him lose every shred of control, at work and at home. He's fought taking her to the ultimate level of his dominance until tonight, the night before her first mission. 

“On the bed,” Chase whispered, holding the strap in front of him.

“Restraints.” Kate trembled as she stared at him. She’d been restrained in training, made to swim with her hands behind her back, and she had hated it. But he’d held her hands down last night when he first tangled with her, on the couch. She’d loved the feeling of being trapped and at his mercy. If he’d make her come over and over, she’d do as he asked. If he’d hold her afterward.

“Do you trust me?” The leather cuffs and chains jingled in his hands.
“Which of you is here?”

“Not the boss.” He unbuckled one restraint, the leather sliding through his hands.

“Then yes, I do.”

He looked at her then, his gaze cold. “It hurts that you can’t trust all of me.”

It was the most honest thing he’d said all evening. But Kate couldn’t trust him, not as her boss, not when that part of him would send her to die and think nothing of it. “You tell me how I can trust the boss after today, Chase. Honestly. How can I?”

“I warned you.”

She opened her mouth and closed it. She could get her head around the fact that he was two people, essentially. He was her boss and he was her lover, and this job made them so different… Eventually, though, the boss would win. And she wouldn’t trust any part of him here, in the safety of his bedroom. “We’re not going to make it, are we. Not me. Us.”

He closed his eyes and drew in a deep breath. “I can’t talk to you about this—any of this—until this fucking mission is done. You have to understand that. There are things I can tell you and things I can’t, and I’m afraid if I start, I’ll tell you everything. And I can’t.”

He opened his eyes and these emotions she understood. Desperation, fear and absolute hopelessness. She wanted to run to him, soothe them away. But the mask fell into place, his features schooled to cold perfection. Hard, yet devastatingly handsome. A perfect study of control.

His Adam’s apple bobbed, and he refused to meet her gaze. “I need your consent for this. Will you allow me control? Will you submit to me?”

Lastly, a glimpse of Spy Games: Birthday Games
 Spy Games: Birthday Games free on Amazon!

What do you get the spy who has everything for his thirty-fifth birthday? A menage, of course. Secret Agent Jake Anderson can't believe his good fortune. He's always had the hots for his best friend's blonde bombshell wife, but Kate is also his partner and he knows better than to cross the line unless Chase gives the word. But all lines are erased for a night of sinful pleasure with his best friends, and even better, Jake gets to be in charge. Since Jake loves nothing more than missions that end in gun fights and car explosions, he's gearing up for one smokin' hot birthday party.

Birthday Games is a short, erotic story featuring Chase and Kate Sanders and of course, Jake Anderson, spies from the Spy Games series by Mia Downing. This sexy, hot read gives eager readers a glimpse of what happens between books 1 and 2. There is nothing revealed that you won't learn eventually, but sometimes having advanced knowledge is half of the fun!

Story contains: Explicit language, smokin' hot, kinky sex between consenting adults. Expect to enjoy light BDSM, spanking, m/f/m action, birthday cake and more

You either get the whole deal of Alpha Male, or you get a Beta. There is no middle ground. The women who truly appreciates me knows the meaning of sacrifice and love for me, and puts me ahead of her own needs.
I am being blessed with the knowledge, courage and guts that it takes to be the Alpha, and I reap all the benefits from it. I have my soft side, I have my boundaries too, but I always come first. Because that is what I am.

Hi Mia

Hi Mia,

Doing the Alpha Male blog hop! You are my last stop. :-) I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! 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! I'm not talking about obnoxious bullies! They are loyal, loving, caring and protective. They have sexy 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 meet you, explore your site and win some great prizes.

Fun post.

In answer to your other blog- I prefer to write in silence, but edit to classical music.
Any song with words gets in the way of my thoughts. (And makes it harder to hear my characters talking... Voices in my head aren't a result of crazy, they're the result of being a writer! LOL)

Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!

Jack Gordon from Liz Crowe's REALTOR series rocks!

Thanks for participating in the hop!

An Alpha can be protective, loving, caring, gentle and considerate to his partner but he also can be the most fearsome and aggressive if threatened. He will protect his loved ones to the death. Thanks for the HOP!
