Both he and final-round competitor Kaleb had fans rally for them, but in the end the Black Dagger Brotherhood member who has not one, but two books about him...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 7: Raphael vs. Wrath

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 7: Raphael vs. Wrath It makes sense in a battle of ultimate alpha characters that we’d have the primo leaders of their respective worlds in this year’s Alpha Showdown. In Round 7 we have two of the biggest, baddest and most loved leaders. Raphael is an archangel—leading angels and vampires and watching over humans—from Nalini Singh’s excellent Guild Hunter series.
