Wild Men of Alaska

The Russian translation of the word Alaska literally means: “Where the sea breaks her back.”  
As a writer setting my stories in Alaska lends unlimited possibilities for my heroes and the women who fall in love with them. Since I married my own Wild Man of Alaska, I know my subject well. I love men who are larger than life, who operate outside the norm, and have their own code of ethics that might or might not coincide with the law of the land. The conditions in which they live requires them to be problem solvers, men of action, leaders, and physically powerful. What’s not to love?

For the women reading this, the current men to women ratio in Alaska is seven men to every one woman. That’s right I said SEVEN. Until you can get the funds together for a plane ticket and go after your own Wild Man of Alaska, you can get “Lucky” in DREAMWEAVER.

“Lucky” Leroy Morgan is a man so wild he’s pushing the limits of death to be with the woman he loves.

A desperate man...
“Lucky” Leroy Morgan led a charmed life, until he was murdered. Now he’s stuck in Limbo, unwilling to move on after catching a glimpse of the future he was supposed to have and the amazing woman who was destined to be his. Using the Northern Lights as a conduit back to earth, he attempts to seduce her in her dreams, hoping to anchor himself to the physical plane. If he doesn’t win her heart, he’ll be forever lost.

A tempted woman...
Gemma Star is fairly conventional considering her hippie upbringing. Her biggest fear is that she’ll end up like her Tarot card reading mother, who isn’t all there. When Gemma starts having out-of-this-world sex with a dream lover, she starts to wonder if she is losing her mind along with her heart. What if her crazy mother is right? If she continues consorting with her Dreamweaver will there be lasting consequences to her soul?

Will their love survive? Or is it just a dream...


Barnes & Noble:

To learn more about the Wild Men of Alaska check out Lynx in MOOSED UP and Skip in IMPACT. Then you will be ready to met Sergei, my wild Russian, in BEARING ALL coming soon in November.

I’d love to hear about the qualities you look for in a larger than life hero when needing to lose yourself in a good book. We’re all friends here, so feel free to share.

You can learn more about Tiffinie Helmer at or her facebook page where she shares great facts and amazing pictures of Alaska and the Wild Men who live there.

A kilt. Is he wearing a kilt? Does he speak with a brogue? Can he buy some plaid material and fake it for an evening?

These are what makes a hero for me, baby.

Besides the physical qualities??Actually, I want a man who adores me, and in his eyes I'm perfect, even when I'm not. I hope that's the way hubby sees me after 37 yrs, but that glint may be cataracts.

Lesli, anyone can "fake" for an evening. Sorry, you walked right into that.

A kilt is a must, and a brogue makes my knees weak.

Joelene, those are amazing qualities to have in a hero. They would be truly heroic.
