I've got some heroes that can break your heart! The swoop in for the kill during a story and leave you in shock after THE END. Yes, that's the heart breaker of a romance! But you can relive that moment over and over with a book. So, welcome to the Heartbreaker Blog Hop where you can enter to win lots of hunks to leave you wanting more...

Before I begin, please thank Carrie Ann Ryan for coordinating this event. And here's the list of 303 participating blogs so you can keep on hopping to enter to win all of that loot!

So what's the loot for this blog hop look like?


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!

Yep. Every location on the hop that you enter to win that blog's prize puts you in the running once for these grand prizes!



Do you think the hunk on SLIPSTREAM's cover is a heart breaker? Well, there's a surprise in that story. The story started as a traditional m/f romance but turned out to be a menage because I just don't like any main characters having a broken heart at the end! Yes, I write romance. But this novel is erotic romance because there are multiple heroes. Read the blurb to see why...

Congratulations, Dr. Charlotte Barley! You won a one-way ticket to Diablo’s Shithole!

Yes, Dr. Barley, you saved earth from humanity’s extinction brought on by overpopulation, discovered wormholes, and gave humanity a new lease on life. But, you’re being hunted by someone using a wormhole device you can’t fathom, plagued by a type of sleepwalking that involves reliving your alien sexual experiences gleaned from wormhole journeys, and, yes, we see that you can’t deal with your murdered bodyguards—mercenary Space Marines forced to anchor your body to a bed at night by acting out the sex memories haunting your REM cycle. Get over it already because there’s nowhere left to hide except Diablo’s Shithole…And the shit is about to hit Diablo’s fan more than you could ever imagine…Because, deep down inside, you know you’re into all that kinky sex.

So, who will the next victim be? Is tall, long, and corded astrophysicist Major Fitzroy capable of dancing with death to save your ass, or are you willing to sacrifice hotter-than-sin muscle-bound explosives fanatic Corporal Laurel? Just don’t let their nuts rub together. And you know your alien-infested sexual dreams are a huge turn on for you. Just face the music, honey. Can your bodyguards fulfill the sexual fantasy of the king of all alien kings and his troop of humping brothers until the truth is exposed to save your ass?

So, Dr. Barley, you slut, ready for another slide down a slippery wormhole to Diablo’s Shithole? It looks like a lot of fun. And more than those feet are going to get wet in the SLIPSTREAM.

Warning: Reader should be prepared for a heroine who curses like a sailor and knows she's a slut, Space Marines with sex on the brain, a Corporal with a clit fetish, aliens who bite and harvest things best left hush hush, as well as a little human m/f/m, even more alien m/f/m/m/m/m, and a plenty m/f in a plot heavily laden with reproduction and sexual gratification. Finally, this story proves one universal constant: it never hurts to drop the soap. 

You can pop over to read Chapter 1 too!

One person will be randomly selected to win a Kindle or Nook version of Cyber Ops SLIPSTREAM. Please do the following 2 things to enter:

1. Just enter by telling me what you think of Chapter 1 here as a comment on the blog post (contest). Enter by midnight CST, February 11th, 2013.

    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're welcome. And I haven't read that. REALLY! My critique partner ruined it for me by saying how awful it was. Can you believe her? So, I've been reluctant to spend money on it. (Really!) *rolls eyes* Maybe I will! LOL ~Skhye

    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!


    ***I love Mr. Darcy! I need to read Zadist...(Oy! So little time...) Thanks for entering. ~Skhye

    I like the first chapter and it has me wanting more. It took me a bit at first to understand because I am normally not a big sci-fi reader, but after the first page on my screen I got where it was going. I definitely want to know what happens now. I'm a new fan and joined the Yahoo Group because I didn't see an option to follow your blog via email. I hope that is the best way to follow. If not, please let me know. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

    ***Thank you! I prefer to weave in the back story instead of dumping it all up front. I don't even buy sci-fi or fantasy with info dumps from the start--these days. I know I'm not going to read them. ~Skhye

    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.

    ***Wow, what a list! I hope you're on the prowl for more heartbreakers to add to your list. ;P ~Skhye

    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.
