Heartbreaker Hop!


Sometimes the man who seems the most like a heartbreaker is the one who will never break your heart. 
Sometimes the man you thought would never hurt you is the one who will cut you to the bone.  I sit here wondering what makes a heartbreaker.  How many hearts does a man have to break before he's considered a "heartbreaker"?  Because I'm pretty sure the answer is just one if it's yours...

Where do I stand on heartbreakers?  Love 'em or leave 'em?  Nah, that's too simple for me, too black and white.  Life is messy and complicated, and relationships are the most complicated part of all.  Don't ignore the past, but don't let it dictate the future.  How's that for vague?

The Giveaway:

It isn't exactly seasonal, but it is filled with hot heartbreakers and heartthrobs.  In honor of the Heartbreaker Hop, I'm giving away a copy of Halloween Heat VI, the sizzling Halloween anthology from Etopia Press.

Four erotic stories of contemporary romance with just the right amount of Halloween spice to warm up those cool autumn nights.

While you're here, feel free to check out my contemporary erotic novella,

A Flowerpot Christmas Tree:

This Christmas, she'll get exactly what she needs...

40-something anthropology professor Lillian Chase knows how to be alone, even if the sights and sounds of the season make her a little lonely. When she's not teaching classes, Lillian helps law enforcement solve missing persons cases through facial reconstruction. But the anthropology department finds this kind of subjective application a little too soft, and Lillian's not sure she'll be approved for tenure. Worse, though, she worries that she won't be able to identify the skull of her most recent "Jane Doe" in time to give the missing woman's family closure for the holidays.

But when a twenty-seven-year-old artist and former student moves in downstairs, Lillian finds herself feeling more than just neighborly. Noah Ames is al kinds of off-limits: he's too young, he's a former student, and he lives right downstairs. Even with three strikes against him, his fiery appeal is undeniable. He pushes Lillian's boundaries--sexual and otherwise--in ways she's not sure she's comfortable with. But that just may be exactly what Lillian needs...
