Heartbreaker Blog Hop & Contest

I confess. I like my heroes to be heartbreakers. But only in the sense that they have an emotional obstacle to overcome. And that in turn makes them a heartthrob for me!

I was having trouble coming up with who my favorite heartbreaker is for this tour until I read Olivia Cunning’s newest Sinners on Tour release Hot Ticket. And I totally fell for Jace Seymour. He has a traumatic past that he has been unable to overcome and he has a secret kink to help him cope with his emotional pain. (You can read my review of Hot Ticket HERE). Not only is he my favorite Heartbreaker, but he is now my favorite rocker too!!!

    I prefer a heartbreaker, more interesting a complex than a mere pretty boy.

  2. I like heartthrobs, but I also like a bit of angst in my books and that’s where heartbreakers are sometimes necessary 😉

    I prefer a heartthrob and one of my faves is Roarke from the In Death series. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I do love a heartbreaker. Their flaws make them so much more interesting. I hate puppy dogs that pine away. They are way too wimpy for me. I don’t know if I can pick just one but because I just finished Taken and No Take Backs, I’ll go with Merrick Rocha being my newest favorite!

  5. Petula Winmill

    I have already done all of the above. Have a fun hop.


  6. Jess1

    I prefer heartthrobs. Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Amber Slagle

    I like the Hero to be a Heart Breaker!

  8. I like the redeemed heartbreaker or just a great heart throb in my books. My favourite tends to be whichever one I am currently reading *is a fickle woman*.

  9. Trix

    I like the sweet guys who break my heart by not realizing how irresistible they are!

    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.

    A heartbreaking hero is all good. At least they’re desirable enough to be a heartbreaker.


  18. April Holgate (@grapeapril75)

    For me the heartbreaker is a bad boy who goes kicking and screaming into love! When he falls he falls hard!

    The only heartbreakers I have encountered are literary! And my all time fav is Mr Darcy! Although, I am currently crushing on Zadist from the Black Dagger Brotherhood!
