Why is Lord Clinton the target of marriage-minded misses and their ambitious mothers?
- He’s a viscount and the heir to an earldom.
- He’s wealthy.
- He’s considered to be “exceedingly well-favored.”
- His exceptional fashion sense makes him one of the most imitated gentlemen of the ton.
- He’s single.
- He’s also intelligent, well-educated, does not gamble excessively or live beyond his means.
- He’s surrounded by sycophants and admirers, has no close family to rein him in, and he’s become arrogant.
- He is intolerant of the faults of others and his set-downs have sent more than one young girl home in tears.
- He looks down on country folks as being uncivilized.
On meeting Lady Theresa, he dismisses her as a mannerless country chit. One with amazing blue eyes, but still…he’d never consider marrying a girl like her. Even if he were thinking of marriage, which he definitely is not. No, when he takes on a leg-shackle—years into the future—it will be a well-bred society lady who is eminently suitable to become his countess.
But Lady Theresa is more than what she appears at first. And Damian, too, has depths to him that have been sadly neglected in recent years. But she is a country lady, first and foremost, and he is one of the top Corinthians in London. A marriage between them would be a disaster. Wouldn’t it?
Do you think a match between two completely opposite people is a good idea? Why or why not?
Treasuring Theresa is a Regency short story available at Ellora’s Cave, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony, Google Play, All Romance E-books, and Bookstrand.

Well, they say that opposites attract. Really, whether this work or not depends on the personalities and the level of commitment of the people involved.In regency times, it really was was difficult as people were so class conscious. Today, I think that people are not so caught up in this issue. .email@example.com
I think if two people care enough for each other they can make anything work. If they truly want to. With Love we can overlook a lot of differences. 🙂
Tanks for the chance Susana

It can be, because opposites attract. But sometimes with two such different people, you maybe find, they don’t have enough in common to make it work. So, depends on the people, I guess.
I think it can make for a hot romance but I think eventually of you are too different it will drive you apart. You have to be able to find some middle ground together
Opposites attract for sure so anything can work!!
Even though opposites attract, I think it would be very difficult for a relationship to work if there is nothing in common.
yes, because they see things different.
I think if they agree on the most important things in life, and learn from each other, it can be the ideal match.
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.
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 think opposites are the perfect match!!
Sometimes different characters complete each other,, but it’s not good always..
Thanks so much for participation!
Thanks for participating!
sure opposites are always more fun – regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com
They say opposites attract. 🙂 It makes things interesting.
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.
I think the opposites attract couple can work. It just depends what kind of differences that they have and if they can compromise and be flexible etc. Of course,they need to have a lot of respect and love for each other.

I think that being with someone different from you can be a great learning experience, and allows both people to grow, whereas if you’re with someone just like you you have less chance to try new things and experience adventures out of your comfort zone.
I love reading about heartbreakers! They are usually bad-boys, they’re witty, funny and sexy and the female population is drooling after them lol

I think it can work but there has to be some kind of common ground too
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
i think it works well! opposites alwasy seem to attract 🙂
Yes, I do opposites always attract and they complement each other!

I think it works in the beginning, but without some compromise, the relationship will not do very well.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Thanks for the giveaway.
Opposite-ish would work, but COMPLETELY opposite would take a lot of work.

I think opposites can attract.

It can, so long as both are willing to work at it. (Or, if one’s a doormat it can work for a while but not long term.) Opposites both meeting in the middle is one of my favorite types of romance, so long as they do both do the work to nurture a relationship.

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 needs to be.
I totally believe in opposites attracting and working out. My husband and I are complete opposites in so many aspects but we provide a nice balance for each other that makes it work just right. He is the peanut butter to my jelly! Thanks for the fun giveaway. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com
Thanks for the great giveaway!! So many great prizes!! Happy Valentine’s Day!
I forgot to answer the question!! Do I think a match between two completely opposite people is a good idea? Yes because if you dated someone just like yourself you’d be bored as hell!!
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.
One of my favorites is Justice from Justice by Laurann Dohner. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! 🙂
I’d say opposites attract. However, there has to be something in common or there’d be nothing to do together.
Thanks for participating in this awesome hop. Have a good one!

I think opposites can have a good relationship.

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

If the two opposites complement each other, then why not.

Absolutely. If the female/male, knocks the arrogance out of a person and make them more human, then I say yes.
It seems like a good idea at first, but then occur differencies and impatience to each other… So, probably, it is not such a good idea!
I believe that opposites attract… Hubby and I balance each other nicely he calms me down when needed and i calm him down so it works… Thanks for being part of the hop.
There are no guarantees in any relationship. That said, there is nothing to say that a relationship between opposites wouldn’t work. I know several couples who are as different as night and day and for the most part, they compliment each other.

Yes, I like the passion between two different people. 🙂 zorthon2004atyahoo.com
Opposites attract just like yin and yang
I like the heartbreakers. They make the make up sex so much sweeter. Thanks for being Heartbreakers Blog Hop.
