I’ve made a list of my favorite heartbreakers. These are men I often think of when I’m in the process of starting a new novel and hero. All of them are stunners! Men you would lose your heart to at first sight, but there is more to them than just good looks. They have depths to their character
My first Heartbreaker is:
James Dean. He lived hard and died way to fast but while he was here, every girls heart beat a bit faster for this ultimate bad boy.
My second Heartbreaker is:
Shemar Moore. This is one good looking guy. Tan, muscular, and bald, whew! He is a disaster to anything with ovaries. He’s dated a lot of woman and no one has pinned this hunk down.
My third Heartbreaker is:
Cary Grant. This is my nod to old Hollywood. I love classic movies. AMC and TMC are two of my favorite channels. Cary Grant was a king of that era. Classic good look, witty, funny and a joy to watch on film. To Catch a Thief, Notorious, The Philadelphia Story and my absolute favorite, An Affair To Remember. Nobody did romance better than Mr. Grant. When he fell in love, we wanted to be that woman who brought him to his knees.
My fourth Heartbreaker is:
Leonardo Dicaprio. This heartbreaker broke every woman’s heart when he portrayed Jack in the epic movie Titanic. Since then, he has cut a swath through the supermodel ranks. I hear he’s searching for Mrs. Right, that special someone to put a boulder on the third finger of her left hand. We all wonder who that lucky lady will be.
My fifth Heartbreaker is:
Brad Pitt. He represents the reformed bad boy. Yes, he broke Jennifer’s heart, and received the wrath of the female nation. I firmly believe that if he and Angelina just had a fling, something which was over in a blink, his star would have remained tarnished for a very long time. But Angie is his Soulmate. Their longevity and the children prove that. Seeing him with Angie and their children endears him to me. I know some will disagree, but in my book, Brad will always have the heartbreaker status.
My sixth Heartbreaker is; The Ultimate Heartbreaker *drum roll please*
George Clooney! This man must grease himself down each day, so he can slip through the fingers of any woman who’s trying to catch him. Though he has shared his time with many women, he is monogamous while in a relationship. But the moment the ‘M’ word is bandied about, Mr. Clooney gets gone. Getting this gorgeous heartbreaker (who gets better looking with age) to the altar will be a feat which will be recorded in legend. Who will that woman be? The world waits with baited breath!
This is my list of heartbreakers. Who are yours?
Oh, This is Roman Nicolis, the Heartbreaker hero of my debut novel, Eternity. He’s an immortal warrior, reformed playboy, definitely a heartbreaker.
Here’s a Heartbreaker excerpt:
Damn. This wasn’t kind, but what choice did he have? Roman didn’t want to end their engagement this way, but fate would always have its way. Though he fought it, in two millennia his heart hadn’t belonged to him, but to one woman, Elyssian. Now, it didn’t belong to her either.
Since the moment he touched Stella while she lay unconscious in the hospital, his heart belonged to her. Last night confirmed what fate decried. He loved her.
When she walked out of the room, he started to follow.
“Roman, why is she here?”
Bianca’s sharp voice stopped him, but he still listened to Stella’s receding footsteps before facing his ex. A beautiful woman any man would move mountains to have on his arm and waiting in his bed, he regretted the pain he was about to cause.
“I’m sorry, Bianca. There’s no easy way to say this. I’ve wasted your time. There won’t be a marriage between us.”
“No,” shocked, she shook her head. “You can’t do this! We’re getting married in three months!”
“How could you do this? I love you.” She rushed to him. Her hands tugging at his shirt, touching his face, clinging to him with a desperation that actually felt true. Bianca desperate? Yes, for power and the status his notoriety would give her.
“Is that a tear?” He shrewdly assessed her dry eyes. “No, I didn’t think so. You don’t love me and those tears you’re trying so hard to generate aren’t for a lost love. You and I are a piece of fiction we created to fill a gap. You wanted a rich husband. I wanted you to be someone else.”
“Who, that pathetic girl?”
He leaned in closed so that the only thing she saw was the fury on his face. “It’s over, Bianca. Let it go.”
She shook her head. “No. She’s a victim and you saved her. I get it, you’re a hero, but you and I have a history. We’re the same person. Indomitable, winners.” She stroked his face.
Unfortunately, she was correct. “You’re right, in a few ways we are the same. We have the same bloodthirsty tendencies. You compliment the dark river that runs through me. She is my light, the other half of my soul. That’s why I love her. I’ll always love her.”
Real tears glistened in her eyes. “But you love me,” she whispered.
For a very brief moment, I thought I did, but loving and being in love are two different things. “Please accept my apology, Bianca.”
“You fucking bastard,” she whispered brokenly.
He sighed heavily. “You’re right, I’m a bastard, but you knew what I’m capable of before you accepted my ring. Count yourself lucky, Bianca you’ve saved yourself the headache of a divorce.”

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 great comment Tammy
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.
I haven’t read that book yet. From the word of mouth, I don’t know that I will read it.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I love your list of heartbreakers. I think the ultimate heartbreaker is Rhett Butler.
I did think of Rhett Butler, but left him off the list at the last moment. Clark Gable was definitely a heartbreaker.
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!
Oh my, I forgot how much I love Cary Grant!! And Rock Hudson!
I absolutely Love Zadist.
I also love Leo!
From fiction they are Damon from VD and Eric from TB, if you consider them heart breakers 😀
Thanks so much for participation!
From fiction: Jerricho Barrons from the Fever series, and on TV Chris Hemsworth…
I love the Fever Series. Jericho Barrons is a prime Alpha Male. Chris Hemswort=Thor. A match made in movie heaven.
Thanks for participating!
Joe Manganiello for me.

Barron’s is definitely an alpha male heartbreaker
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.
My favorite bad boys are definitely the ones on your list. I didn’t think about Cary Grant though. James Dean is one of my favorites. He is a little before my time but I still love him. Some others I love are Colin Farrell and and Charlie Sheen. Okay, I’m talking the Charlie Sheen before he went all nuts and had a bit of a breakdown and started “winning” also Judd Nelson. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com
Thanks for the comment
One of my favorites is Justice from Justice by Laurann Dohner. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! 🙂
My favorite part of having a heart breaker is the world class groveling. Todd in Lauren Dane’s Laid Bare is my perfect example.

My favorite heartbreaker is Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series. Really…I love to hate him and vice versa.
michelletucker at baconnation dot net
Roman Nicolis – what a heartbreaker! Can I win him. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m so glad you liked Roman. He is definitely an alpha male heart breaker
That would be Eric from the True Blood!
Damon from The Vampire Diaries
spamscape [at] gmail [dot] com
I love Damon!
I with you, except that Leo DiCaprio is my #1
Broderick from Ransom by Julie Garwood
magic5905 at embarqmail dot com
Great list of heartbreakers… Sexy George is def a heartbreaker lol.
James Dean is a good one! I also think of Rhett Butler when I think of heartbreaker.
Thanks for the giveaway
My favorite heartbreaker? It would definitely have to be Bruce Wayne/Batman. Broken hearts on record? Talia al Ghul, Zatanna, Sliver St. Cloud, Vicki Vale, Selina Kyle, Wonder Woman, Sasha Bordeaux, Andrea Beaumont, Barbara Gordan, nameless date of the week….It’s a long list, but I was added on that list when I was around 3 so…some of those girls better just step aside since I’ve been on the list longer. I think girls like heartbreakers because they think they can be the special girl that finally gets through to the “real” him and can change him for the better. Even though I love my heartbreaker Batman. I would still pick my future husband (April 6th!) over him, because I know that my handsome nerd knows what he’s got at home and is in it for “forever after.”
Thanks for participating!
