We’ve all had our hearts broken before, haven’t we? It’s a dreadful experience, but teaches us a lot about ourselves and the people we love. It’s probably an experience each of us should have at some point or another. And we all relate to a heroine who has lived the same heartbreak. It makes us root for her happy ending. Tell us about a time when your heart got broken, or a fave broken heart story from a book, and you could win our prizes!

A perfect example of a woman dealing with a broken heart is Caitlyn from A Hot Mess.

Monday, Feb 11, marks the release of my first Christy Gissendaner release in six years! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, A Hot Mess will be available at Lsbooks.com and is one of the prizes being given away to a lucky winner during the hop.

Thanks for dropping by and we hope you enjoy your visit! Check back often as we have some very exciting (free) short stories coming next month. Lucky’s Charms is our latest project and one not to be missed! What’s not to like about strippers and ten super hot shorts from ten super talented authors?


A Hot Mess by Christy Gissendaner

Caitlyn Myers elopes to Vegas on a spur of the moment decision, but once there she is abandoned by her heartless fiancé. With no money, and her luggage lost at the airport, she calls the one person she knows will help her.

Dylan Russell has known Caitlyn since she was a scruffy tomboy. He’s watched her mature into a ravishing woman and has kept his desire for her a secret … until now. Valentine’s Day in Vegas provides the dazzling backdrop for seduction as Dylan shows Caitlyn that not all loves are messy.

  1. I’d go with Gone With the Wind… There was a lot going in this book, even thought i do think Scarlet was truly brokenhearted twice…



  2. Well those heartbreaks… How the excitement of love suddenly is the opposite! Always it’s as difficult to overcome, but slowly it’ll be better. Thanks for the giveaway!


  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.



    • You’ve been very lucky, Karina! Me personally have never had my heart broken romantically either…I have lost a beloved pet though and it pure broke my heart! Thanks for coming by!


  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. I love reading about heartbreakers! They are usually bad-boys, they’re witty, funny and sexy and the female population is drooling after them lol

  6. I had my heart broken by my husband. We met and were engaged in a relatively short amount of time. I knew the first time I met him that I was going to marry him. After about a year, he called off our wedding partly because of my selfish ways and sever independence. We were apart for about a year and I was completely broken-hearted. Then my son got very sick and he happened to see us in the emergency room (he is a paramedic). He realized the error of his ways and fought very hard to get me back which he did. It has now been thirteen years since we met and we joke about our time apart and the mistakes we both made. We were both broken hearted, but he has since made up for it.


  7. 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.



  8. My first heartbreak was in the third grade. The whole class found out I liked this one boy, and then he came up and told me in front of everyone that he did not like me. My little heart was broken. Luckily it’s gotten a little stronger since then lol



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


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

  11. Thanks for hopping! My first heartbreak was also in third grade. The boy I liked would basically run away from me whenever he saw me. LOL.
