Heartbreakers Tour - Day Six

Today is the final day of the Heartbreakers tour for 2015! It's a week filled with Valentine's Day goodness from some amazing authors! Visit each stop as each of the bloggers will be highlighting different authors and asking different questions! Also be sure to enter the giveaway that will be located at the bottom of each tour stop.

Last day of the tour and it's a big one! FOUR authors are stopping by today to close out the tour. I have Dawn Ius, Eileen Cook, Brenda Hiatt, and Jen McConnel dishing on their books, and romance.

Dawn is spotlighting her novel Anne and Henry!

A novel that may have been mentioned her before (okay, so a couple of times or whatever) Check out the Goodreads synopsis

Wild, brazen, mischievous, bewitching


Driven, haunted, charming, magnetic


Apart they are bound to destroy themselves. Together, they are bound to destroy
each other.

HENRY TUDOR’S LIFE HAS BEEN mapped out since the day he was born: student president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father’s.

But ever since the death of Henry’s brother—perfect, high-achieving Arthur—his family has been twice as demanding. And now Henry’s trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who’s not Tudor-approved.

Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.

Anne is wild, brash, and outspoken. She is everything Henry is not allowed to be—or to want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, yet his desire for Anne consumes him. Henry is willing to do anything to be with her. But once he has her, their romance could destroy them both.

Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, ANNE & HENRY reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time. 
A modern take on the story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry?! All over it.

Dawn took the time to answer my Valentine themed questions. Her heartbreak cure is the best ever.

1. What do you think is the best way to get over a heartbreak?

Chocolate, hot bath, and wine — preferably all at once.

2. What literary couple is your favourite?

Diana Gabaldon’s JAMIE & CLAIRE (from Outlander) own that place in my heart. Jamie was my first book BF. #swoon

She is the Assistant Managing Editor of the International Thriller Writers Association’s monthly magazine, THE BIG THRILL, co-founder and senior editor of Vine Leaves Literary Journal, and the author of ten educational graphic novels published by the Alberta Canola Producers Commission.

Dawn lives in Alberta, Canada, with her husband, Jeff, and their giant English Mastiff, Roarke. 

Next up, Sarah Hantz sharing details about her novel!

The electrifying conclusion to the Starstruck series!

M, no longer a nerdy nobody, has finally been acclaimed Sovereign Emileia, ruler of the Martian colony Nuath. But at what cost? Without her soulmate Rigel, life seems pointless but she’s expected to shake off her heartbreak and assume her responsibilities. Reluctantly, M does what she must until an unexpected discovery restores a glimmer of hope for the future. Now she is determined to do whatever she can to salvage her longed-for happy ending—if it’s not already too late. 
She also answers my questions and Elizabeth and Darcy are winning this thing (I approve, obviously).

1. What do you think is the best way to get over a heartbreak?

Eat a quart of Rocky Road ice cream and read lots of romance novels.

2. What literary couple is your favourite?

Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, of course!

Brenda Hiatt is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty novels (so far), including traditional Regency romance, time travel romance, historical romance, and humorous mystery. She is as excited about her STARSTRUCK series as she's ever been about any of her books. In addition to writing, Brenda is passionate about embracing life to the fullest, to include scuba diving (she has over 60 dives to her credit), Taekwondo (where she is currently pursuing her 3rd degree black belt),hiking, traveling, and pursuing new experiences and skills.

Next up is Eileen Cook sharing detail about her newest novel.

Ashley is spotlighting Remember. One I've seen floating around blogs already.

Check out the Goodreads synopsis
A thrilling tale about what a girl will do to get back a memory she lost…or remove what she wants to forget.

Harper is used to her family being hounded by protestors. Her father runs the company that trademarked the “Memtex” procedure to wipe away sad memories, and plenty of people think it shouldn’t be legal. Then a new demonstrator crosses her path, Neil, who’s as persistent as he is hot. Not that Harper’s noticing, since she already has a boyfriend.

When Harper suffers a loss, she’s shocked her father won’t allow her to get the treatment, so she finds a way to get it without his approval. Soon afterward, she’s plagued with strange symptoms, including hallucinations of a woman who is somehow both a stranger, yet incredibly familiar. Harper begins to wonder if she is delusional, or if these are somehow memories.

Together with Neil, who insists he has his own reasons for needing answers about the real dangers of Memtex, Harper begins her search for the truth. What she finds could uproot all she’s ever believed about her life… 
This sounds mysterious, and like an excellent, fast paced thriller.

Eileen took the time to answer my Valentine themed questions. Score another one for Elizabeth and Darcy!

1. What do you think is the best way to get over a heartbreak?

A great music playlist, chocolate, and good friends

2. What literary couple is your favourite?

Pride and Prejudice junkie so Elizabeth and Darcy

She also answers my questions and she chose another iconic couple.
