Krystal Shannan - Heartbreaker Blog Event #HeartHop


Sometimes a hero will start out as a heartbreaker, but by the end of the story they are a heartthrob.  Maybe they are a little too cocky in the beginning. Or they put their foot in their mouth. Or maybe they just don't have a clue about women. Growth is important. I want the heroes I read about to struggle with something and then work to overcome it. It's about the journey for me. The heroes in my books all have something they must overcome to find happiness with their leading lady.
 Join me for a little peek at my newest release, CHASING SAM. The hero Chase Michaels is a seventy-five year old werewolf, who had pretty much given up on finding a mate when he stumbles into Sam at the airport. Sparks fly and he is left unable to tell which way is up and which way is down.  
SHORT EXCERPT:                                                                                                                                                                      God, he was smiling. A huge lolling sexy grin. Her heart melted into a puddle and all she wanted to do was oblige her wolf, climb into his lap, and snuggle against his broad chest.

Nicole laughed and Sam turned back with a glare. “Out of the entire Vegas strip, soldier-boy hottie ends up one table across from you in your favorite haunt.”
“Shhh… Nicole, don’t talk so loud. He can hear you.” Her cheeks warmed and she took another quick sip of her Jack and coke.
“Ooooh, this is the hottie from the airport?” Hallie giggled.
Sam put her empty glass down and looked up. All three of her sisters were smiling and waving at Chase and his friend. If only she could disappear into the leather of the seat cushion.
“Nicole, wave them over here to our booth. I want to meet the guy that finally made Sam turn her head twice.” Tess snickered. “It’s not every day you get to see Samantha Demakis blush like a high school freshman.”
“Shut up, Tess,” Sam hissed and scowled at her little sister. She wanted nothing more than to talk to Chase again, but not surrounded by her sisters or in front of whoever his friend was. 
Before she could object, Nicole had hopped up from their booth and walked over to the pair. Sam stole another glance and shivered with excitement when both men stood and followed Nicole back to the table.
