This has been a fantastic hop and I hope you've enjoyed meeting our alphas! Today's comes from the lovely Miranda Stork whose publishing company Moon Rose Publishing is responsible for bringing this awesomeness to the world :) Her story, Reborn City, features Leonid and I must say, I adore the following snippet. But I'll let you judge for yourself...

“Look…if you want me to take the collar off…I will. I don’t want you to be afraid of me. I know this is…well, quite frankly this is not right. But you’re here now, and I want us to try and get on. I will try to repair the damage I’ve caused.”
Nyx’s hand automatically flew to the crystal collar at her slender throat, and she was about to nod, when the words caught in her throat. Frowning, she asked, “But why did you want it on me in the first place? You could have caught me without placing this around me.”
A broad grin spread across Leonid’s face. The bench creaked as he sat back, crossing his legs and spreading his arms along the back. “After what happened when we met, and you’re asking me that question? I wanted to please you. In all ways. The Slipper allows me to give you pleasure beyond pleasure.”
“Oh.” To Nyx’s horror, her response came out almost as a gasp. Red slowly crept across her cheeks, making her feel even more heated than before. Leonid turned his head slowly and chuckled, making her squeeze her legs together.
“It sounds as though you’re not entirely against that idea.” His voice had grown deeper, thick with lust. He couldn’t easily hide how turned on this strange woman had him. So many women had laid themselves at his feet over the years, fawning and pathetic. He wanted a woman who would challenge him, who would be his equal in wit and intelligence. But he also wanted a woman willing to give him control in their bedroom. A combination he had given up hope of ever seeing. But he saw something in Nyx…something beyond her curvaceous figure, or her silky raven locks. Behind the fierce and rebellious nature was something more. A spirit that cried out for control in her unsteady world, a need to let someone else protect her for once.
Nyx bit her lip, and looked as though she was trying to think of something acceptable to say. Leonid gently grasped her chin, and drew her face to his intense gaze. “No, no…say what you first thought of; not what you think you should say. Tell me. Are you against the idea that you might be curious about what that collar-or I-can do?”
Breathing a little heavier than before, Nyx met his eyes and shook her head. “No.” she whispered. “I don’t know why, but…I am curious.”
Sitting in this pose, so close to her plump lips, Leonid could feel her breath on his own. He kept his grip on her chin, and searched her eyes with his own. She fluttered her eyelids closed, then opened them again, letting him see how abandoned her own gaze was becoming. Still afraid she might back away, he leaned in, pressing their mouths together in a chaste kiss. Nyx gave a little moan, and his groin twitched, making him groan in response. The kiss deepened, and he slid his tongue along her lips, parting them to his probing, gently fisting his hand in her hair. To his shock, her own hands flew to his face, stroking his jaw as they drank in each other.

Bet you want to know more about that collar, don't you? Soon lovelies, soon! Sadly this is the last day for our alphas, but don't worry, I won't leave you hanging for long. In a few days, another blog hop will kick off and I will introduce you to our lovely heroines!
