Tara Quan’s Operation Owl Tour of the Capital – Eastern Market

Five years ago, Maya Jain kissed her best friend only to have him run out of her dorm room and leave the state. When he shows up in Washington, D.C., a wanted fugitive sought after by every branch of the US government, she can’t bring herself to ignore his plight. As their physical relationship picks up where it left off, she decides it’s time to make him see her as more than the bespectacled, bookish girl he once called “Owl.” After being accused of espionage and treason, Zack Strong needs a forensic accountant to help clear his name.

I’m not a big fan of alpha males myself. Too many alphas come across as controlling and even abusive. I am a proud feminist and do not believe women should be submissive to men. When reading books with a too-tough alpha male I often wonder why on earth did she fall in love with him?  The leading men in my romances tend to be a beta or are able to tame their alpha side when the time comes if it will help their situation. Compromise is an art and a good one in any stable relationship. William Steere in Wild and Tender Care is the most alpha male I’ve writte
