What is it about heartbreakers that makes us want to swoon? Okay, I'm not talking about the ones that break our hearts and make us want to scream, all the while signing to Pat Benatar. No, I'm talking about the ones you just look at and want to swoon while clutching your pearls.

Or get over yourself and jump right on it like a bucking bronco. Apparently I've been reading way too many westerns LOL. What is it that makes a heartbreaker is heartbreaker? Is it those abs? That smoldering look? The way he makes you melt? The way you want to scream when he looks the other way because he doesn't know to look?

  1. A heartbreaker is a man or woman who are too good-looking or charming for their own good. They use, abuse and then disappears leaving a trail of broken hearts...

  2. A heart breaker is a love em and leave em type of guy!

  3. A heartbreaker is full of charm and charisma!


  4. We all want to love a Heartbreaker. Maybe its because of his chiseled good looks, his bad boy attitude, or his mysterious nature!Some Heartbreakers are just that, they know what they got and they know 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 relize that 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 favorites are :

    Kade Jamenson (Werewolf) from An Alpha's Path. Kade is a sexy werewolf that will make you burn, but an incident with a potential mate and he doesn't think he will find love.

    Ian MacPhie (Vampire) from All I Want Fot Christmas Is A Vampire. Ian is a heartbreaking Highland Vampire that was frozen in his immortality when he was 15 years old. With the help of fellow vampire friend and scientist he is given a drug that helps him age to 28 years old so he can look like the man he feels like and not a man trapped in a teenagers body. Ian has no confidence in finding a mate.

    Lothaire Daciano (Vampire) from Lothaire. Lothaire is definately a Heartbreaker and his cocky attitude proves it 100%! He thinks he is Gods gift to women! Its 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 gentleman but he doesn't think he can also play the rogue.

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

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

    Joshua Striker (Werewolf) from Alexandra's Legacy. Joshua is a scarred and battle hard enforcer for his pack and he thinks he doesn't have what it takes to make a certain woman melt.

    See....Everyone deserves a little Heartbreaker in their lives!

  5. It's those smoldering eyes which get me. My heartbreaker's gotta have them. Thanks Carrie Ann.

  8. I think a Heartbreaker is someone who uses good looks, smooth lines, lies etc to get what they want for there own selfish pleasure with no concern to how they affecting the other person or the damage they do


  9. A heartbreaker to me is someone with good looks who is carefree and non committal. Funny I always think of my brothers best friend from when we are younger...he broke many a heart.

  10. A heart breaker is someone who takes delight in smashing dreams and hopes.

  11. A heart breaker is someone who toys with you

  12. A heartbreaker is someone who has wonderful qualities, except one quality that keeps them from committing to a happy relationship. So instead they leave a trail of broken hearts behind them.

  13. A heart breaker is someone who inadvertently or purposely leaves you shattered.

  14. My first encounter with a heartbreaker came at the age of 15, after transferring to a new school. He flirted outrageously with me and asked me to "go" with him, and for one day, I did. Then I heard gossip that he was a love-em-leave-em guy and I broke up. I didn't want to be dumped.
    Boy, was I sorry later.
    I wanted him back, but his pride wouldn't allow it. For the rest of the school year he treated me with respect and friendship, but never once did he try to kiss me or win me back. Then, school ended the day before my 16th birthday and he showed up at my house with a dozen roses. Unfortunately, I was out with friends and missed the opportunity AGAIN!
    That summer we moved and I didn't see him again until several years later. By then, he wasn't under my skin. Still, it was a sweet reunion and I think of him fondly.

    1. Yoinks, got so excited about my heartbreaker, I forgot the rules. I follow the blog and receive the newsletter and my email is MadelineSloane AT gmail DOT com

  15. A heartbreaker is someone who doesn't know how good looking and special he really is. He is the guy that doesn't realize that his actions have broken your heart....But, when he does realize it, he takes immediate action to convince you he really does love you. :)

  16. A heartbreaker is that guy every woman thinks she can change, the guy who has that special something you can't define, but who draws women to him, then throws them away when he's finished with them.

  17. A heartbreaker can be anyone. Its that special person for each of us that can just tear us apart with a simple word or gesture.

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

  19. My literal def of a heart breaker is someone who knowingly abuses the good nature of someone else for their own gain.
    The more fun def is someone who is too good looking for their own good.

  20. My idea of a heartbreaker is someone that would literally make your heart hurt if you lost them. I follow via Networked Blog as Kaylyn Davis, and I get the newsletter under the email listed. Thank you for organizing this hop! You rock!

  21. A heart breaker who is someone who know he can get away with anything because of his looks and charm. He uses women for his gain and then throws them away. I receive your newsletter and I also follow you through Face book. I'm in the pack...

  22. A heartbreaker is someone who does not want a "relationship" just an encounter. If any emotions get involved, he/she is gone.

  23. A heartbreaker is different for everyone. but he has to have at least a little bad boy in him at times :)

  24. A heartbreaker is anyone that hurts you emotionally.
    I am a blog and newsletter follower with my email

  25. A heartbreaker leads a person on then betrays them in some way. They can't be accused of being a heartbreaker if they made their intentions known from the beginning and it was the other person who got emotionally involved anyway.

  26. Heartbreakers come in many forms. It could be the one who uses charm to get what he wants and then ditches you once he's gotten it. Or it could be a good guy who makes you fall for him and then he leaves or does something stupid to hurt you, not intentionally but hurt just the same. Thanks for these awesome hops!

  28. Your question is too deep. A heart breaker is so many things. All I know is that the best ones always are the ones who end up in the HEA's at the end.

  38. In the romance book world, I think a heartbreak is someone who's sexy as hell and possibly knows it. He can have any woman he wants and also knows it. But with that being the case, he doesn't really know how to change the way he is, but wants that ome person. He tends to let his mouth and actions get in the way, thus breaking the heart of he one true one.

  39. I think finding your boyfriend in bed with one of your friends

  40. Heartbreak is realizing he was never yours to begin with.

  56. So many of these responses have listed looks, when reality its a lot about trust and feelings. A real heartbreaker doesn't need looks, but charm or personality to sneak in under/past our defenses. Someone who uses others without regard to their feelings or needs; a selfish person using and discarding others.
    And one thing not mentioned- it doesn't have to be a significant other...a heartbreaker can be a close/best friend or family member. I have had more 'heartbreak' over best-friends than guys I dated. Only really been in love a couple of times, but I've had "best friends" stab me in the back more often over the years!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  79. Heartbreakers are unattainable. You fall for them but for whatever reason, they can't ultimately give you want you want. It's really up to you whether to allow them to break your heart or not.

  80. I think a heart breaker is the one who doesn't know how or don't want to commit to something serious!

  81. Heartbreakers are tortured broken souls who do not believe they deserve love and/or are so jaded they don't believe it truly exists. What I love about heartbreakers is watching them fall. When they do it's usually hard and cataclysmic. Wraith from Larissa Ione's Demonica series is just one of my favorites. Thanks for hosting this awesome hop!

  89. I may not have much experience in the whole love department, but I have had my heart broken. Being a heartbreaker can be from various actions that you do. I am a newbie when it comes to reading romance books but what I have learned it is not bad to have a chiseled body or an amazing personality. If you look at it over all, if you never put your heart out there, you may never have a chance at true love and happiness.

  90. The heartbreakers are the ones you know, I mean absolutely without a doubt, know are going to break your heart. Yet, you do it anyway.

  91. What is a heartbreaker? One of those guys you just swoon over, fall in love with but sadly, don't end up with even though it seems like it's going to happen. Unfortunately it hits you hard when you realize this.

  92. a heart breaker is a man you know you should never fall in love with but it happens anyways.

  93. To me a Heart Breaker is a man with a handsome face, Gorgeous body & hair & he know's it. Show's it in each step he takes with confidence. He has an air about him that when he looks at you, you get lost in those eyes, dreaming of being wrapped around his body. However in all this beauty is arrogance. He knows he can get any woman he see's to drool at his feet, so he is a constant heart breaker, going from one woman to the other without a thought or remorse to those he women he leaves behind. Constantly looking for his next conquest.

    A heartbreaker to me is someone who can have any woman, since he is swoonworthy... And uses them to get what he wants (Since he can) and than leaves them and breaks their heart.

  97. A heartbreaker can be an unintentional one (eg. the gay guy all the girls love but can never have) or intentional (usually a total douche). Heartbreakers can be inbetween, but I hate the bad heartbreakers who break hearts cause it's fun.


  98. I think a heartbreaker is someone or something that just shreds your heart with emotions. It doesn't have to be intentional,but the result is all the same. If you don't have your heart broken sometime in your life, then you are not living.
