Dangerous Love: Top Ten Crazy Obsessive Heroes in Romance Novels

Please note - The House on Black Lake has been adapted to screenplay. Go to Home Page to see provocative trailer and music video based on novel.

A dangerously obsessive male can be both highly exciting and a nightmare for a woman. In reality few would desire such a challenge, but held at arms length - inside a novel or on a movie screen, such a man can be enormously intriguing.

The House on Black Lake features three such obsessive males, all very different. Ramey Sandeley's obsession with Alexandra Brighton leads him to the brink of emotional and physical cruelty. He can't help himself, as he has never heard the word "no".  Rock God Georgie La Pointe, on the other hand, grooms his hair in the eyes of his lovers, but when he loses control over his conquest he becomes obsessional. Andre Labat, the sensuous young Frenchman has the same expectation of female surrender and a ruthless desire to level the playing field by seducing the object of his rivals' desire. All men are out of control, and that is what makes them so appealing.

The following top ten are taken from lists of romance lovers and are in no particular order.

1. Simon Boldevar -Crimson Kiss Series  by Trisha Baker

2. Lucien de Malheur "The Scorpian" - Breathless - The House of Rohan by Anne Stuart

3. Judd - Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changelings book 3) by Nalini Singh

4. Dimitri - Archangels Blade (Guild Hunter) by Nalini Singh

5. Zsadist - Black Dagger Brotherhood - by J.R. Ward

6. Conrad Wroth - Immortals After Dark Seriesby Kresly Cole

7. Travis - Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire

8. Jake - Burning Wild by Christine Freehan

9. Baird - Claimed by Evangeline Anderson

10. Domenico - The Silver Devil by Therese Denys

Sean Culhane from Stormfire is a very controversial "hero" who is hated by most readers, but leaves a powerful impression, nonetheless.

Top Ten Dominant Alpha Males in Romance Novels

The House on Black Lake has been adapted to screenplay. Go to Home Page to view provocative trailer featuring scenes from novel.

The House on Black Lake  has three powerful, dominant alpha men. Ramey Sandeley has never tasted failure and expects he will always win, whether in business or pleasure.  His uncle, Roger Sandeley, is a member of a group of international businessmen in Montreal that make up a nearly invincible power elite. Georgie La Pointe is the cousin to Ramey Sandeley, a spoiled rock god, born to great privilege. A supreme narcissist, Georgie has never slept with the same woman more than once,  grooms his hair in the eyes of his lovers, and makes love to himself while listening to his songs.

 Alphas are great fun to play with and when a woman wins in the game of love with an A - it is a triumphant battle indeed. Alexandra is lured by all three of powerful dominant alphas. A broken and world weary divorced mother when she journeys to Black Lake, she seems ill equipped for such a task. But as Alexandra is drawn into the underground and mentored by the mystics and gypsies dormant powers are unleashed, and she begins a dramatic transformation. Will the romantic beauty beat the dominant alphas at their games and tame each and every one? Perhaps not tame, but their lives will never be the same.

 I have taken a poll from the romance community, and the following have been voted the top ten most dominent Alpha men in romantic novels. Thanks to Amazon Romance Forum.

In no particular order, the winners are:

1. Domenico, The Silver Devil by Teresa Denys - cult favorite  - dark historical romance set in renaissance Italy about Duke who sees peasant girl in window and buys her from her brother and forces her to be his mistress

3. Wrath The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward -leader of vampire warriors set in New York

9. Rolfe the Relentless, The Conquerer by Brenda Joyce - romance set in England in 1069

10. Gregori, Dark Magic Series by Christine Ferham - heavy on romance and intimacy with vampire, magic, paranormal twist
