Vampire Dmitri is ruthless and had a long time to hone his skills. But he’s up against The Spider. Gin Blanco from is an assassin, who can kill you with a paperclip, and she can flex some elemental magic. Two tough alphas this time, and I’m rather pleased you are the ones making the call.
Read the pitches, then make the call. Who should advance to the next round in the Alpha Showdown? The poll at the end of this post will be open for two days. Remember, alphas don’t share titles. Your votes decide who advances in the Alpha Showdown 2012.

Dmitri. His name rolls off your tongue dark and delicious. His tongue is extremely skilled in other matters tongues are used for. But I digress. In this ‘Alpha Showdown’ competition, he is the biggest, baddest, and most tortured of them all. He uses his deep rooted pain, to smack down the other so-called alphas with a flick of his finger.
He is 1,000 years old and the leader of Archangel Raphael’s security team, which means he is not only bad ass, but very trustworthy as well. Hey Gin Blanco – how old are you? That’s right – you just go back into that kitchen and make more pies.
He oozes sex appeal, literally. His aroma of chocolate and champagne makes every woman think lusty thoughts. He not only has brutal strength when fighting an enemy, but a brutal wickedness when seducing a lady.
“I’m fairly certain you’re not a nice man at all.”
His answer was a slow smile that whispered of silk sheets, erotic whispers, and sweat-damp skin. The unhidden intent of it had her heart slamming hard against her ribs. “No,” she said, voice raw.
“A challenge.” He wasn’t touching her and yet she felt caressed by a thousand ropes of fur, soft and lush and unmistakably sexual. “I accept.”
Dmitri will kill all of your enemies then make nasty, dirty love to you all while smelling like chocolate and champagne. Ladies and gents… we have our winner.

‘My name’s Gin and I kill people.’
Gin Blanco is an assassin. Not just any assassin, the most feared assassin in the South…and with good reason. She’s lethal, completely ruthless and doesn’t hide it. I love that Gin doesn’t pretend to be something she’s not. Gin will always be an assassin first and foremost. She’s the Spider…and she kills people. End of. Gin has rules, no kids, no pets, and no innocents. Just don’t think this makes her weak. She is no angel and she revels in it.
My girl got skillz! She’ll find you when you’re most vulnerable and slide her Silverstone knife into your heart…and then cut your throat for good measure. Gin’s the best, unbeatable in a knife fight…but it’s her elemental magic that really sets her apart. Born with more raw power than anyone in living memory, Gin can level buildings or tear apart mountains with a single thought, create thousands of icicle knives to slice through a body or flash freeze you into a human Popsicle. The number of ways she can kill you is truly scary. I wouldn’t even trust her with a teaspoon, because she’ll find some way to end your life with it!
Gin may be tough on the outside…and I mean that in the most literal sense since she can turn her skin as hard as marble…but beneath the tough exterior is the little girl who watched her family’s murder…and her own torture at the hands of the most powerful Fire elemental in 500 years. But this little girl’s all grown up…and out for revenge.
Loyal to a fault, Gin is definitely one who you would rather have as your best friend than an enemy. When she’s not kicking ass, she’s making the best food in the South…A girls gotta have a hobby right…and let’s face it, she’s got skills with those knives. My girl is the ultimate Alpha Female. Watch out everyone, because Gin’s about to crash this party ☺
You may be 1,000 year-old Dmitri, but you’ve never met someone like Gin. That little penchant for knives you have, well, Gin is more than happy to oblige…a knife through the heart and another to take your head should suffice don’t you think? So you’re strong, so you’re fast, so you smell good…but Gin’s taken out better without breaking a sweat. Bring it on Dmitri, but if I were you…I’d run, run as far and as fast as you can because once the Spider has you in her sights…she won’t stop until you are dead…permanently.
