Heartbreaker Blog Hop - Heroes Who Break Our Hearts

Hi all,

Thanks to everyone who participated in this blog hop - the comments were so much fun to read! To learn who the Grand Prize Winners are, follow this link.

Mary Frances Roya is the winner of the $10 Amazon Gift Card from this blog. Congrats Mary!

Welcome to the Heartbreaker Blog Hop where you can follow over 300 blogs to read fun and interesting posts, and you can enter to win prizes at all the blogs along with a Grand Prize Drawing! We are coming up to Valentine's Day, a day that can either mean chocolate, roses, and passion for those in love. Unfortunately, it can also mean heartbreak for others. And that is what we are talking about today - when your favorite fictional hero turns heartbreaker. What makes us love them, and why do they break our hearts when they disappoint us?

When Heroes Break Our Hearts

When heroes become heartbreakers in a story it can literally take our breath away. How can they break the heroine's heart? We want to scream at them, cry, and maybe even slap them silly for breaking their lover's heart. But as we all know, a good love story also has a good breakup scene to add drama, whether we like it or not. Think about your favorite old classics. My favorite classic novel, Jane Eyre, has Edward Rochester as the heartbreaker. You really want these two to come together, but he breaks Jane's heart and she runs away. Lucky for us, in most stories with a heartbreaker, the couple does get back together in the end.

What book or movie has your favorite heartbreaker in it?

Sara's Promise

Cherise looked directly into William's eyes. "Why are you breaking my best friend's heart?" she asked bluntly.

This line is from my latest novel, Sara's Promise. In it, William believes that he will ruin Annie's life because his love for her will hold her back, so he breaks up with her. Her best friend, Cherise, wants to know why he is breaking her friend's heart and ruining Annie's happily ever after. Sara's Promise has many twists and turns and a few surprises. If you enjoy a good love story - you will love Sara's Promise.

Buy Sara's Promise on Amazon Kindle or in Paperback

  1. My fav heart breaker is Kellan Kyle from Thoughtless

  2. Eric from True Blood


  3. Rhett Butler is the ultimate heartbreaker in my opinion.


  4. Rhett is definitely the most famous heartbreaker.

    1. Thanks, Shannon - Glad you liked it. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Roarke!! great giveaway Thanks!!! adgali(at)ymail(dot)com

  7. Jesse from This

  8. My favorite heartbreaker is Damon from the Vampire Diaries. Thanks for the chance!

  9. Maybe Dante from Damon Suede's HOT HEAD...


  10. Sara's Promise looks like a good read!! Thanks for sharing :)
    I don't have a favorite, there are too many heartbreakers to love ;)


  11. Sabastian from Devil in Winter

  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.

  13. I think Eric Northman is my ultimate heartbreaker, both in the book and in the t.v. series. Thanks for the giveaway.

  14. Thanks for the giveaway and participating in the hop!
    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.

  15. Eric from True Blood

  16. Gotta agree with Eric from True Blood. or Zadist from The Black Dagger Brotherhood :) Thanks!

  17. My favorite movie heart breaker is Will Hunting of Good Will Hunting. Skylar tells him that she'll forget him and not fight for him if he can tell her that he doesn't love her. In a deadpan voice Will says, "I don't love you." I jumped up and screamed at the screen. Embarrassed my husband to death! Thanks for the giveaway Deanna and great question.

  18. I would have say: Kresley Cole's Lothaire, Jeaniene Frost's Bones, JR Ward's Z & V, & Charlaine Harris's Eric :)
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  19. Gannicus from Starz's Spartacus
    bituin76 at hotmail dot com

  20. Eric from Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood


  21. Eric.... always Eric.

  24. Thanks so much for participation in the hop!

  25. Heartbreakers are usually bad-boys, they’re witty, funny and sexy and the female population is drooling after them lol
    My favorite is Alex from Kiss An Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips!

  26. I love heartbreakers cause they are fun to love. I prefer a heartthrob cause he is in it for the long haul.

  27. I love heartbreakers because of their chance to keep waiting for them to do the right thing, but they don't and break your heart again until finally they make it up. Mr Rochester is definitely a heartbreaker!

  31. 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 needs to be.
