Heartbreaker Blog Hop 2/8-2/11

Heartbreaker Button

Hi, everyone, welcome to the Heartbreaker Blog Hop. At this stop, I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced Feb 12th. Enter to win by reading this excerpt from my paranormal romance, Until Darkness Comes, and following the steps below. Commenting on this blog will enter you to win one of 3 Grand Prizes listed below!

A guardian angel… A forbidden love… Eternal consequences…

Olivia Norton was born with a gift—a gift heaven has sworn to protect, and hell is bound to destroy. Her perfect world is turned upside-down when two handsome strangers, Max and Liam, step into her life. Olivia soon discovers that her ‘Mr. Perfect’ is actually a perfect nightmare.

The rules of engagement have changed and Liam, Olivia’s guardian angel, is forced to cross dimensional borders or risk losing the woman he’s sworn to protect. Suddenly, thrust into a world unlike anything he’s ever known, Liam isn’t prepared to come face to face with the young woman whose life he holds in his hands.

But nothing is as it seems, and secrets abound that will ultimately force him to choose between two impossibilities. Max will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started, and Olivia is soon plunged into a battle between good and evil. Her very life hangs in the balance as two forces fight to win her heart.

Until Darkness Comes Excerpt:

Max stood in the parking lot, straddling his Harley. “Come on,” he called impatiently.

“I’m not running, Max. You could have waited for me.”

Sighing, he climbed off the motorcycle and walked toward Olivia. The charming smile painted on his face reminded her of the Cheshire cat. Gathering her in his arms, he pulled her close. “I’m sorry, Liv.”

A smile touched her lips at his attempt to make amends. Now, that’s more like it.

She couldn’t stay mad. Her resistance softened as he placed small kisses along the side of her neck, his throaty purr making her laugh. Olivia playfully spun from his embrace and ran down the beach. Fine, warm grains of sand spilled into her sandals with each step. She glanced over her shoulder to see if he followed, enjoying her little game. His brow quirked in amusement, his dark eyes locked on her, watching her with the intensity of a lion tracking its prey. A tremble of excitement fluttered in the pit of her stomach.

“Don’t make me chase you, Olivia,” his husky growl carried to her on the briny air.

“Ha, you couldn’t catch me,” she challenged.

As the last word left her mouth, Max dashed after her. Letting out a high-pitched squeal, she jagged to the left, running toward the lapping shore of the Gulf. Just as her sandaled foot touched the cool, frothy water, a pair of muscular arms whisked her high in the air.

She yelped playfully, laughing as he swung her around and kissed her.

“I told you not to make me chase you.” His husky whisper brushed against her lips. “You could never outrun me, Olivia.”

Until Darkness Comes is available in paperback or eBook at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or All Romance.

    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.

    I did everything but Twitter because I don’t have a Twitter account.

    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.

    I may not have much experience in the whole love department, but I have had my heart broken. Being considered a Heartbreaker can come from various actions that you do. I am a newbie when it comes to reading romance books but what I have learned is that 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. I may get broken once in a while but only you are strong enough to pick yourself up and try all over again. One of my favorite Heartbreakers is Taylor Qualls the Earl of Sandlin from the book His Impetuous Debutante. Lady Phoebe kinda reminds me of myself, accident prone and finding trouble in every corner. Taylor doesn’t think he is good enough for Phoebe, so he’s a heartbreaker and doesn’t know it.

    Im following your blog.
