Heartbreaker Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Kelli Scott stop on the Heartbreaker Blog Hop! Thanks to Carrie Ann for hosting this fun event.
 
I'll take a heartstopper over a heartbreaker. Breaks my heart when I get a doggy gate for my station wagon on Valentine's Day (true story) instead of a dozen roses. Stops my heart when I get jewelry...preferably heart shaped and sparkly. So here's my question to you. 
 
Valentine's Day? Love it or hate it?
I love the idea of it, same as I love the idea of Mother's Day, another inspired holiday. Sweethearts and mothers should, at the very least, have an entire day devoted to them so they can be queen for a day. But that doesn't make up for 364 days of neglect. V-Day is a nice accompaniment to a year of special moments, even if those moments are simply a pleasant text or a hug after a bad day. 
 
Leave me a comment with your email address and I'll enter you in a drawing for an ecopy of Silk Stalkings (US/INT) and a little Valentine's Day grab bag (US only) of fun...naughty playing cards...candles...games... And don't forget to visit the other blogs on the Heartbreaker Blog Hop for more prizes and fun. And gadzooks! Check out the grand prizes for this hop at the bottom of the post.

 
My Prize! Silk Stalkings
Blurb
 
Yancey Peters is on a mission to beef up her sexual resumé. Men have told her she’s the kind of woman you marry, not the kind you fool around with. The problem is, none of the men she’s dated are ready to settle down. So Yancey decides to transform herself from plain Jane to hot chick and embark on a sexual exploration of her own.
Diego Ramos is through with reckless women, done chasing after short skirts, sexy silk stockings and high heels. Until he meets Yancey, that is. He thought he was ready to settle down, find a wholesome wife and start a family. Yancey makes him realize he might have one more carefree fling in him after all.
Unfortunately, Yancey has also caught the eye of another admirer who wants more than she’s willing to give.

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $100 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!

    I think that Christian Grey from "50 Shades of Grey" is a good example of a heartbreaker. He used and abused Ana at first, but then came to his senses by book two.

  4. 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!

    1. I've found most guys pretty open to committment...even if it's not permanent. Iove a man who is all in but the heroine is reluctant and needs to be chased.

  12. 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.

  14. Yancey sounds fun!

    I don't really have strong feelings about Valentine's day, which is apparently strange...people seem to love or hate it. It's a nice reminder to tell my loved ones how much they mean to me, but I'm not a big flowers sort of girl. And I find the competitive public displays of love a bit much. The day after, on the other hand, is fabulous. Chocolate goes on sale!

  15. 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.

  19. My favorite part of having a heart breaker is the world class groveling. Todd in Lauren Dane's Laid Bare is my perfect example.

  20. I agree with you about Vday and Mothers day. 2 great days a woman/mother should be cherised while there are 363 days of non-cherised time.

  22. I totally do not get into Valentine's Day, never have, still don't even though I'm married. I will also pout at the same time and say that hubby just isn't very romantic. Mother's Day on the other hand is something I love b/c my 2 kids really get into making stuff and writing me letters. I do love that!

    1. I end up working on Mother's Day because the extended family gets together and I need to make a potluck dish.

  23. Im a lucky girl because I have a husband that doesn't just make Valentine's Day special but also the other 364 days. And with 5 kids we do everything we can to keep the sparks going. I actually don't get flowers or candy on Feb. 14 because I tell my husband not to waste the money. He brings me flowers throughout the year randomly and for no reason and that to me means more than getting roses on V day. Thanks so much for the chance to win this fun giveaway and for taking part in the blog hop. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com
