When I think of Heartthrob and a Heart breaker I think about Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series. the question that comes to mind is Morelli or Ranger? My pick is Ranger any day.  He is hot, sexy, dark and dangerous. My idea of a Heartthrob yet a Heart breaker. 

 When I picture Ranger I see Vin Diesel. He is so nice to look at and would love you but not be able to stay, just like Ranger.

I can look at him all day. 

My new release, Rescued from the Dark 

will be released February 16, 2013
The Heartthrob in my story is Jason Michaels. In my eyes he is built, and looks just like Vin Diesel, but in my story he will get his Happy Ever After. 


She has no memory of their love...

Kidnapped by terrorists and sent into a drug-induced coma, FBI intern Mercedes Kingsley awakes with no memory of her ordeal—or the intimate interlude that left her pregnant. Convinced her child was fathered by her ex-fiancĂ©, she walks away from the only man she has ever loved, determined to make things work with her ex, a man the FBI suspects is implicated in her abduction.

He knows the truth, but no one will listen...

FBI undercover agent Jason Michaels remembers what Mercy can’t and those memories are breaking his heart. Forced to keep his distance from his lover and their unborn child, Jason risks his life to protect Mercy from a cell of international terrorists who have vowed to get the secrets locked in her memory, no matter the cost. Can Jason convince Mercy to trust him until she remembers their past, or will he lose her to a man who will trap her in a nightmare world of darkness from which there is no escape?

Available through
Will be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble February 16,2013.

  1. My fav Heart Breaker is Kellan Kyle from Thoughtless!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!


  5. Jamie from Outlander.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. My favorite part of having a heart breaker is the world class groveling. Todd in Lauren Dane's Laid Bare is my perfect example.

  27. What a great blurb on your story. Going on my TBR list for sure.
    Keep writing so I can keep reading. Thanks for being in the Heartbreaker Blog Hop. Thanks Mary.

  28. 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.

  29. One of my favorites is Justice from Justice by Laurann Dohner. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! :)

  30. Eric from True Blood for sure!


  31. Damon from the Vampire Diaries... :)

  32. Eric Northman from True Blood. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy Valentine's Day!

  33. My favorite heartbreaker is Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series. Really...I love to hate him and vice versa.

  34. Ooh, the picture on the cover reminds me a little of Val Kilmer in his early movies. And Vin Diesel I too could stare at him all day. As for my favorite heartbreaker I love the tortured souls. The ones that come with far too much baggage from their past that they don't know real love when they find it until its too late and then they have a lot of making up to do. As for a literary heartbreaker I don't really have any favorites. I just started reading JR Wards Black Dagger series and have been told I will fall in love with the heartbreakers in that series. Thanks for the fun stop on the blog hop. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

  35. I love Kevin Costner in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves he is a heartbreak in that movie.

  36. Damon from Vampire Diaries
