  1. I think a heartbreaker becomes a heartthrob once they meet their "one". That does not really answer you question, but it is the best I have tehehe.

  2. Heartthrobs stay and Heart Breakers Love em and Leave em at least once!

  3. Heartthrobs are there for you forever..HeartBreakers come in your life and leave you when they get what they want..
    Great Giveaway..Thanks!!

  4. A heartbreaker loves and leaves. A heartthrob can be a heartbreaker, or he can be someone worshiped from afar, or (best of all) he can be the one.


  5. A heartthrob is a pretty face. It's a superficial description. A heartbreaker engages and challenges the emotions, for good or ill. Most heartbreakers in romance fiction are also heartthrobs, thank goodness!

  6. Both are sexy, but the heartbreaker knows it!


  7. The heart-breaker is one that gets close and then leaves. The heart-throb is one that is looked on from afar so has no chance of breaking your heart.

  8. 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.

  9. Heartthrob is handsome inside and out, Heartbreaker is handsome but uncaring of love.

  10. A heartthrob is handsome and loving. A heartbreaker doesn't care about a woman's feelings.

  11. Heartthrob is loving and caring sexy and dreamy. Heartbreaker is more rugged and a torchered soul you want to save but he walks away


  12. For me the heartbreaker is a bad boy who goes kicking and screaming into love! When he falls he falls hard! In my mind not too different from a heartthrob.

    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!


  13. I think they're basically the same thing.
    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.

  14. A heartrob makes your heart beat but he may not have your heart. A heartbreaker does and has the ability to break it :(


  15. I think a heart throb stays once he falls for his love, I think a heartbreaker is charming and doesn't settle...he may miss out on love.
    Thanks for the giveaway

  16. to me they are basically the same...but the heartbreaker has a bit more of a bad boy he projects ;)


  17. The only good heartbreaker is a reformed heartbreaker, and groveling is a good way to start the reform! lol.

  18. I think a heart-breaker moves on, while a heart-throb will stay once he falls in love. But I do think that heart-breakers can transform into hear-throbs, once they fall in love :)
    manning_J2004 at yahoo dot com

  19. Heartthrobs stay and Heart Breakers Love em and Leave em at least once!

  20. I have to agree with Laurie the heart-throb will stay with you but the heart-breaker wont, and the heart-breaker knows that he's sexy and thinks he's hot sh*t.

  21. The heartthrob is a sexy sweetie who gives his love freely. A heartbreaker is just that a man who'll take what he wants and leave you heart broken
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  22. Heartthrob is the perfect looking man while a heartbreaker is the ultimate bad boy! Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Heartthrob dosen't break your heart while being hot and a heartbreaker does. =)

  24. I like the heartbreaker when he realizes that he just lost his life mate/soul mate. Then he finds her again .. then there is the great make up sex. Tee Hee!
    Keep writing so I can keep reading. Thanks for being in this super blog hop.

  25. A heart breaker is careless, doesn't know how or don't want to commit to something serious, heartthrob is not like that!
    Thanks so much for participation in the hop!

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

  27. A heartthrob is the hunk you have no chance with. You know it, he knows it, but he milks it to get what he wants. A heartbreaker is the one that teases you, that make syou think you have him and then no, then yes, then no...

    jennirv4967 at gmail dot com

  28. sweetness- a heartbreaker has none.

  29. A heart-throb is a sweetheart, while a heart-breaker is a bad ass
    Thanks for the great giveaway!! So many great prizes!! Happy Valentine's Day!

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

  31. a heartbreaker is a charmer who knows it, one who tempts & teases without intent to "get serious" but rather just enjoy & doesn't particularly worry if the other individual(s) understands or feels the same

  32. A heartthrob, to me, is nicer and more considerate than most heartbreakers. The heartbreaker doesn't always stay, while the heartthrob probably will.

  33. A heartthrob is a gorgeous hunk. The heartbreaker is one who knows it and uses to break hearts.

  34. Heartbreakers are tortured broken souls who do not believe they deserve love and/or are so jaded they don't believe it truly exists. What I love about heartbreakers is watching them fall. When they do it's usually hard and cataclysmic.


  35. Heartbreakers are men who are wary of love and will likely break your heart, heartthrobs are those you have a chance of staying together with.

  36. I think you get involved with heartbreakers and get hurt and Heartthrobs are on a Wish List.

    Judy Peterson

  37. In my mind a heart breaker intentionally lures you in and breaks your heart. A heart throb can look good from afar without hurting you. Thanks! katieamanda1(at)yahoo(dot)com

  38. The difference between a Heartthrob and a Heartbreaker is that in my mind Heartthrobs are wholesome and end up in teenbeat or whatever teen mag they have now lol and a Heartbreaker is someone you have been with or have to possiblility of being with who will at one time or another break your heart and hopefully fix it.

  39. I love a hunky heartbreaker. Thanks for the hop.

  40. My idea of a heartbreaker is someone who is sexy, confident, knows what they want, and goes after it without thought to those others:) A hearthrob has those good qualities but actually cares about how they go about it:)

  41. Heartbreakers don't pay attention to the effect of their actions on others while that is all that heartthrobs do


  42. 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.

  43. To me, a Heartbreaker is someone who uses there looks, smooth talks, tells lies to get what. They dont care about the people they hurt or how they affect them. A heartthrob cares about others, respects there feelings. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! :)

  44. Heartbreaker thinks only about himself... while heartthrob try to make a lady happy (not only one, though :)
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  45. A heartthrob is the sweetheart who will bend over backward for his girl.. A heartbreaker is the the sinfully sexy badass who will stomp all over your heart... The heartbreaker can be reformed though!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. A heartthrob is loved by all women and treats them good. A heartbreaker loves himself first and does not care who he hurts.


  47. Heartbreaker is someone who is gorgeous and cares about him-/herself only. Hearthrob is just gorgeous.

    Thank you for the chance!

  48. A Heartbreaker is someone who is beautiful on the outside but disgusting on the inside. A heart throb is someone beautiful and sweet inside and out.

    AmethystDaydreams at zoho dot com

  49. The heartthrob is the one that you can see yourself in a relationship with. angelacisco79(at)yahoo(dot)com

  50. I think there's very little difference between the two in the the heartbreaker is usually also a heartthrob that breaks your heart. Thanks for the giveaway!

    JessieL62 at comcast dot net

  51. I don't think there is always a ton of difference between the two. There are heartthrobs out there who are also heartbreakers in that they going around breaking the hearts of the women who come into their lives.

    snhoveln (at) gmail (dot) com

  52. Well, I can't really explain, but I'll give you some examples of both and let you come to your own conclusion.

    Alright, heartbreakers:
    Jack from Titanic (unintentional, but still is one)
    Damon from Vampire Diaries
    Rhett Butler from Gone With the WInd

    Bit of both:
    Channing Tatum in Step Up

    Patrick Swayze all the way
    Adam Hauptmann from the Mercy Thompson novels


  53. I think that all heartbreakers have a little heartthrob in them. It all has to do with the choices they make and how they treat people as well as what our past relationships and upbringing is like. thanks for the chance to win. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

  54. Charlie Hunnam from SOA...a true heartthrob
