Heartbreakers. Bad boys. What is it we love so much about them? Something tells me this is a question women will be asking themselves forever.
We know they’re not good for us, but deep down we hope we’ll be the one to change them, the one they fall in love with. We believe somewhere inside them is a good man, right? Okay, maybe in the real world this doesn’t work out very often, but in the world of romance novels it does. I suppose that’s why we devour those novels so veraciously.
Maybe that’s why I have such an obsession with vampires. Talk about bad boy heartbreakers. I mean come on, who could break your heart more than someone who has a tendency to kill people by drinking their blood? Yet many of us love them for that good man underneath the monster—and in turn, we overlook the monster. The heartbreaker.
I remember the first heartbreaker I had a crush on when I was a little girl, Fonzie on Happy Days. I only went downhill from there. As a teen and young adult I wanted Axl Rose. You can’t get more heartbreaker than that. I guess I’ve grown out of that, except for my vampire issues, because I crush on mostly good guys now–Alex O’Loughlin in particular. But for old times, how about a picture of Axl?
Yes, there is a certain reason I chose this pic. It is one of my favorites of it–I mean, of him. And let’s please ignore pics of him today. I prefer the older ones when he was hot and bad as hell.
So now that I’ve grown out of my bad boy stage–maybe–I write about bad boys that can be redeemed—sort of. I guess a vampire can’t really ever be good unless he turns into a “vegetarian.” We won’t even go there. Not badass at all. And a heartbreaker must be badass.
Okay, so I spilled a little about my heartbreaker crushes. What about you? What characters or celebrity bad boys have you fallen for?

TNSS: Book 1
In 1812 England, after nearly eight centuries of immortal life, Bastian Evanko has finally found the woman he wants to spend forever with. Now he is ready to reveal his secret to her, to tell her he is a vampire. But past experience has shown him mortal women may not be able to accept him for what he is. He’s had his share of heartbreak and is hoping this time will be different.
Elise McNeil loves Bastian with all her heart and can’t wait to share her life with him, to have a family with him. But when he shows her the monster he hides inside, she is devastated because he lied to her the entire time he courted her. She is unsure if she can trust him, but more importantly, she believes he may be evil and incapable of loving her as he claims to.
As if their situation isn’t complicated enough, Elise has a secret of her own. Her brother Jacob is a vampire Hunter. When the two men come face-to-face after Jacob and Elise’s parents go missing, will she keep Bastian’s secret or betray him for her family’s sake? Can Bastian save her from the ruling vampire Elders if she breaks their laws by revealing his secret? Or will the couple find out the hard way that nothing lasts forever?
