Next month, I'll be participating in the Lucky in Love Blog Hop.
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. 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?
My most memorable heartbreaker in a book is Diaz in Linda Howard’s Cry No More. At the beginning, you don’t even know if he’s a good guy. There is a moment when he misinterprets Milla’s actions and she thinks he’s betrayed her. What heartbreak!
In movies, nobody beats Rick in Casablanca. You just know Ilsa’s heart is breaking when she gets on the plane.
Here’s a short excerpt from The Pilot:
Let this all be a misunderstanding, Celara thought as she walked out of the tavern.
Too stunned to protest, too disheartened that she’d misjudged Trevarr Jovano, mortified that the patrons of Taver’s Tavern had seen her arrest. This was worse than the first time she had seen her father hauled off to a local lock-up. Each time after that, she became more inured. She would hide in the shadows so no one connected her with the gambler and drunk who most times forgot he had children.
Much like her in the old days, Jovano stayed in the shadows. As she was led away, she had seen him in the dark corner while he let Chief Servary do his dirty work for him. That liar, that scum. He’d had no intention of releasing her cargo. Callously, he’d built up her hopes only to dash them. Sitting smugly in that corner, he’d watched his friend arrest her and had enjoyed it.
Tell me about your favorite heartbreaker.
