They aren't physically dangerous to a heroine, but they will break her heart (and possibly have at some point in the book). Can you think of any suggestions?

Storm in Taken by Storm by Marie Rochelle. He really does something awful to Syleena (not physically). I don't think I've seen anything so mean in a book before.

Not my favorite type of hero, but these can make for poignant reads.

Can the heroine break something to and I am not talkign about a certain body part?


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (gatadelafuente) | 9691 comments Mod
Well this list is more for heroes who hurt the heroine emotionally. But you can start a thread for tough heroines, if you want.

Oh, I don't want to make a list about heroines. I was just making a statement about a hero hurting the heroine.

Are you saying she should hurt something on him in return? That's how I feel when I read these books. :)

Yes, but not what some people probably think.

Debbie (halfpint66) | 272 comments Aren't they all heartbreakers in one way or another?


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (gatadelafuente) | 9691 comments Mod
There are some that are worse about it, than others. I'm thinking the books where the hero really puts the heroine through the wringer, emotionally. Sometimes I like to read these books, because they're angsty. I love angsty books. Usually I spend the whole time yelling at the hero and calling him a jerk.


message 11: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (halfpint66) | 272 comments I love doing that LOL!


message 12: by Shannon (new)

Shannon (Savhage Temptrest) (savhagetemptress) | 32 comments I love doing that too Danielle! Hmmm, let me think of at least one heartbreaker...

-Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series
He totally devasted Bella, and can do it again if he chooses.

-Bill Compton from the Sookie Stackhouse Series
Totally broke Sookie's heart. I still curse him, LOL!

-Raphael from the Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh
Oh, he could break Elena heart with just a snap of fingers, but I think the reward is worth the risk in Elena's case!

-Curran from the Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews
He hasn't broken Kate's heart yet, but he sure has the potential.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (gatadelafuente) | 9691 comments Mod
Good list, Shannon. I love me some Edward. :)


message 14: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (halfpint66) | 272 comments You want to talk about heartbreakers? If you haven't already, read ANY Diana Palmer book.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (gatadelafuente) | 9691 comments Mod
My friend, you know I was thinking about her books when I created this thread. LOL!


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish I finally found Lawless at the Friends of the Library bookstore the other day.

SheLove2Read (sherrih95) Definitely Lawless by Diana Palmer.


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 203 comments A lot of Kat Martin books are like that. I have to go through my library and see which ones. I remember one where he sends her off on a slave ship or prison ship. I think she was gone for a whole year before he realized he had wronged her. Just cant think of the name, but once I find it I'll post it.

I just found this thread, but I must say that I still have some hatred for Bill even now. I couldn't even really like him on the TV show.

As for Diana Palmer, I love her heroes! The only one I've ever loathed and despised was Rodrigo from Fearless. He never redeemed himself enough for me....I don't think he could ever do anything to redeem himself for all the mess he put Gloryanne through.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (gatadelafuente) | 9691 comments Mod
I've heard some really bad things about Rodrigo. I guess that's why I haven't read Fearless yet.


message 22: by Wan (last edited Oct 06, 2010 07:42AM) (new)

Wan (wanwaddell) | 252 comments I think our dangerous Hero breaks Heroine's heart, most of the time, (he thinks) is for her own good. It evolves around protecting her from himself or keep her from involving with him so she would be out of danger. Like -- he is too dangerous for her or -- he is in a dangerous mission. I'm reading Highlander Unmasked by Monica McCarty and that precisely what my dangerous hero was doing. He pretended to break her heart because he was going to war and thought that he might not going to come out alive. So he pretended not to have any feeling for her, before he went to war. -- sigh --


Mollie *scoutrmom* (scoutrmom) | 635 comments How about when the heroine finds out the hero has knocked up another woman? It happens to Alyssa in one of the Troubleshooters books, and to Eugenie in Storm Born.

Alyssa and Sam. :)

Adam St. Clair from My Only Love...he pissed me off so bad! Oh, I could have slapped him!

Oh, that would be a deal breaker for me. No way that any heroines would put up with that right?

I don't know about Eugenie, because I never read her story, but for Alyssa, well, let me see how I can break it down. Alyssa and Sam shared as nemesis' and afterwards she basically told him that she didn't want a relationship with him. That what they did was a one time thing. Sam wanted a relationship. Alyssa thought he was just out to use her. So, six months later, they hook up again and this time, they were going to step in the direction of being a couple, but that's when Sam found out that he was going to be a father. I'm going to stop there.

Sam was hurt that Alyssa didn't want to be with him and like other men, he semi moved on with his life. Semi, because he was in love with Alyssa, but she didn't want him, so he moved on to the next woman.

Sam and Alyssa has been through a rough path, before they finally gotten their HEA. I love their story.

For Eugenie, it happened before they met, the guy is all hers, but she was angry at him for withholding the info.

There's an insurance commercial, where the daddy is talking to his daughter about driving and they show her as a little girl and then we see her as a teenager. (Daddy's little girl). I could picture Sam doing that to Haley.

I know that commercial. It's so sweet. Makes me think of my little girl and that someday she'll be driving :(

You think now you're looking forward to that, wait until they get their permit and you start biting your nails down to the nub. I hated that stage, thank goodness the youngest is now 21.

My DS#2 is probably a heartbreaker, the longest intimate relationship he's had since high school probably lasted less than 3 hours.


message 36: by Pamela(AllHoney), Danger Zone (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 1706 comments Mod
lol @ Mollie*

DS#2 does sound like a heartbreaker if he only lasts for 3 hrs :) But who knows... maybe some gal out there will rope him in.

Could be, could be, right now he's just a little too focused on his career.

I was looking on my hard drive, and I have no photos of him. He's a stand-up comedian in Seattle, and has gotten good enough to give up his day jobs. Hunt facebook or youtube for Seth Lazear, he's a cutie when he shaves or gets a haircut. Maybe the nice ladies on this site could fix him up with a nice Jewish girl?


Paganalexandria  | 354 comments Alexander Kuzan from Love Storm (Russian series/Kuzan Family series, #2) by Susan Johnson fits this category. Susan Johnson specializes in the cheating dirty dog that is irresistible.
