Heartbreaker Blog Hop 8th - 11th



Are our heroes heartthrobs or heartbreakers? Or are they just the same thing? Yummy right? Valentine's Day is just around the corner for this blog hop and we're gearing up to see what exactly is a heartbreaker. Is the song playing in your head line mine? "Cuz he's a heartbreaker!"
 
We love those sexy men, but what about those times in the story when they aren't perfect. Because come on, we know they aren't perfect. What makes those men heartbreakers? What can those guys do to make it better? Is there a way to grovel? Come on! Tell me about your heartbreaker!!
 
In book 2 of my Gasquet Princes series, His chosen Bride, When Melanie offers to help massage away the pain in his neck, Henri messes up big time and lets his position and his pride get in the way his heart's desire.

Latest review HERE
For another five minutes her fingers kneaded, dug, probed and soothed in equal measure and she allowed herself to revel in the touch. Nothing sexual, just their energies mixing, swirling between them and settling. The rightness of the moment seeped into her soul, and before she could prevent them, images of a future together flipped across her mind, breaking the spell. 

She allowed her hands to drift down his arms and then stepped back. A glance at the clock revealed the need for her to search for Melanie if she hoped to cross anything else off her ‘to-do’ list today.

 
Before she’d taken a step his fingers manacled her wrist. Emotion, too dark to interpret, filled his eyes. 

“Thank you. I know from experience that it can take days, sometimes weeks for a crick like that to ease. It feels terrific.” He rolled his head in a circle stretching his neck and offered her one of his heart melting smiles. 

As suddenly as a light switch turning off, his smile vanished. “But don’t let it give you ideas, just because I let you ease my shoulder.” His voice chilled the warmth from the room and sent shivers down her spine. 

 “As if,” she muttered, before almost running from the room. Why couldn’t the stupid fool see that she’d take him in a heartbeat, even—especially, she corrected—if he had barely two pennies to rub together? It was the man’s heart she wanted, not his wealth or his kingdom.

hmm, a prince... Well certainly none of the living ones lol.

There's so many books though. I'd want one who's a bit dark, funny, and mad for me. But who qualifies?

Mary, he's reckoned to be the most 'normal' royal of the bunch, and he reminds folk of his mother.

We all want to love a Heartbreaker. Maybe its because of his chiseled good looks, his bad boy attitude, or the mysterious nature of him. Some Heartbreakers are just that, they know what they got and how to use it to get what they want. Then there are those Heartbreakers that don’t even realize that they are doing it. The best part about a Heartbreaker is that there is always a woman that turns their world upside down until they realize it is love. I have read many Romance Novels over the years and have run into many memorable Heartbreakers and my favorites are usually the ones that don’t even know they are Heartbreakers! Some of my personal favorite Heartbreakers are :

Kade Jamenson (Werewolf) from An Alpha’s Path. Kade is a sexy werewolf that will make you burn but a mishap with a potential mate makes him not think he will find love.

Ian MacPhie (Vampire) from All I Want For Christmas is a Vampire. Ian is a heartbreaking Highland Vampire that was frozen in his immortality when he was only 15. With the help of his friend he is given a drug that helps him age to 28 so he could look like a man instead of a child after hundreds of years. He has no idea that he looks of a warrior and the lover.

Lothaire Daciano (Vampire) from Lothaire. Lothaire is definitely a heartbreaker and his cocky attitude proves it! Thinks he’s a gift to women! Its just the sucker punch from a woman he doesn’t realize is his equal that brings him down a notch.

Marius Parker from His Contrary Bride. Marius is every part the gentlemen but doesn’t realize he could also easily be the rogue!

Benjamin Gateway from To Win His Wayward Wife. Benjamin doesn’t realize that he is a heartbreaker because the one woman he loved, he lost….or did he?

Fury North (Human with Canine DNA) from Fury and Valiant North (Human with Feline DNA) from Valiant. Fury and Valiant are strong New Species and gorgeous to boot, but because they are damaged they doesn’t think they can hold onto to the women they love.

Sigimor Cameron from Highland Conqueror. Sigimor is every bit the Highland Laird and warrior but can he hold onto to the beautiful English lady?

Joshua Striker (Werewolf) from Alexandra’s Legacy. Joshua is a scared and battle hard enforcer for his pack and he thinks that he doesn’t have what it takes to make the women melt.

Thanks for the chance!

strawberryrose said...

My favorite Heartbreaker is the one that your heart can’t live without. One of my best is Lucas from D B Reynolds book “LUCAS” (Vampire in America series). Strong mind, well put together and tender when he wants to be. And loves horses.

I'd take Prince Charming from Once Upon A Time! That's it....lol
Thank you for the chance today,

Carla said...

I don't know that I've met a heart breaker, but I've read about quite a few. My current favorites are both Lauren Dane characters. One is Shane from Fated and the other Todd from Laid Bare. I think the redeeming thing about them is that when they realize how wrong they are they are quite good at communicating their understanding and groveling.

Shannon Bereza said...

I would like to date any prince, but I would like to think Prince Charming from Cinderella would be the best because he did everything he could to find his princess. In real life I think Prince Harry would be a hoot to date. I love him and all his crazy antics. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com
