Rock Stars--the ultimate heart-breakers!

Close up of The Rock Star Next Door, Lex and Jessie make out on the Beach

Valentine's Day is just around the corner for this blog hop and we're gearing up to see what exactly is a heart-breaker. 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 heart-breakers? 

Almost 300 bloggers have giveaways and posts about those men we love! 

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes:

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!
Win this Awesome Swag Pack!

Leave a comment here to be entered to win the grand prize, the swag pack and also the prize for this blog: A $20 iTunes Gift Card and a print or e-book copy of The Rock Star Next Door! Be sure to leave your email address so we can contact you if you are the winner! 

 We've all done it, had that super sexy fantasy about a particular Rock Star falling in love with us. Or maybe, just maybe . . . we were groupies in a past life (ahem, I'll never tell) and got to go backstage and meet Mr. Sexy-hot-dangerous as hell.  

Let's not fool ourselves. A rock star is sort of like a demi-god. We all wish that his affections could be captured forever by just one woman, and that one woman--in our fantasies--is ourselves. But the reality is that Rock Stars, because they are so in demand and so damned Sexy-Dangerous, by definition, are not the kind of hero to sweep us off our feet and carry us away to paradise. That's the reality, but hey, we can dream, can't we? 

In my contemporary romance, The Rock Star Next Door, I created a hero who has a reputation as a heart-breaker and yet, he's become fixated and obsessed with the girl next door. Lex is every woman's fantasy, hot-sexy-dangerous, with a reputation that worries the heroine, Jessie. Worse for it, Lex is convinced that he and Jessie were lovers in a past life and their souls are destined for a reunion in this one. 

Jessie has her own secrets. Given Lex's reputation as a heart-breaker, she's not ready to trust him or his motives for announcing to the media that she's the girl he's going to marry--without even asking her first. He drops a bomb, a big one, causing a media sensation. Is it just a publicity stunt, a joke or is he serious about marrying her

So, who is your dirty little fantasy rock star hottie?  And if he came to your door, insisting you were his soul mate, a lover from a past life that tragedy stole you from him, would you marry the dude? Would you marry him in a heartbeat, as he insists, or would you be backing away with warning bells and the word 'stalker' ringing in your ears. 

Me, I'd fall for Jon Bon Jovi. And if he lived next door to a single me and insisted we were soul mates, hey, I might allow him to woo me a little while I consider my options . . . 
Here are a few other contenders for my secret heart-breaker heart-throb: Do you recognize anyone?   BTW . . . take a moment to enjoy this lovely manly scenery.
      (Elevator music plays as we all stop and admire the hotties below) 



        

       
 


 Okay, wipe the drool off your chin and fess up. 
Who is your hot fantasy celebrity hero? Be honest, its' only us girls here, after all. We all have had that dream, that idol, that teen age crush . . . who was yours? Would you toss caution to the wind if you were single and all grown up and he came a wooing little ol' you

Leave a comment here with your email address and be entered to win the grand prize for the Heart-Breakers Blog Hop or the 2nd and 3rd prizes.   



And that's not all, if you 'fess up and tell who your hot celeb romance hero is (it doesn't have to be a rock star . . . it can be a movie star or a hot country star who makes your heart soar), you'll be entered to win a print copy or e-book copy (winner's choice) of The Rock Star Next Door By Lily Silver along with a $20 iTunes gift card so you can add some hard rockin' music to your iPod or some romance books to your iPad!

Be sure and visit the other bloggers to continue the hop and enter to win more prizes!

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!

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.

Thanks for the chance!

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.

Amber Turner said...

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.

Love me a rock star. A couple years ago I had a meet and greet with KISS. Now, I know they're older, but man oh man, it's pretty damned sexy to see a man who is confidant enough to dress in heels higher than I'd ever wear and still look incredibly good in them. Hah! Thanks for participating in this awesome hop. Have a good one!

I don't know that I've met a heart breaker, but I've read about quite a few. My current favorites are both Lauren Dane characters. One is Shane from Fated and the other Todd from Laid Bare. I think the redeeming thing about them is that when they realize how wrong they are they are quite good at communicating their understanding and groveling.

Ooh my, I love your choices and being that I love them all I am so happy with your choices. McSteamy, Gilles, Mr. Cruise, and of course Bon Jovi. You have great taste. As for my celebrity crush would have to be Colin Farrell and Adam Levine and Paul Walker, and I could go on forever but I will end right there. I'll Be There For You by Bon Jovi is enough to make any girl swoon. Thanks for the fun giveaway. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

I hope I haven't missed the end of the hop. I think I still have an hour left. Thanks for the chance to win, and my heartbreaker is the man who turned into a heartthrob, and I married.
