Criminals and anti-heroes have surged into popularity the last year with motorcycle clubs, dystopic gangs, mafiya enforcers, and assassins. It's just one more way to push the envelope with bad boys.

This week's beefcake is a compilation of some very bad boys, from Charlie's Angels' Justin Theroux; The Italian Jobs' Mark Wahlberg, Jason Statham, and Mos Def; Wanted's Common; Matt Bomer of White Collar; and Ocean's Eleven's Matt Damon, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt.

Why do you think the anti-hero is so popular these days? Who are some of your favorite criminal beefcake? TV, books, movies, we'll take 'em all!

Reaver by Larissa IoneWARRIOR OF HEAVEN

Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before . . . to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.

ANGEL OF HELL

Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood . . .

Get a sneak peek of Larissa Ione's Reaver (available December 17, 2013) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Five days. Reaver and the three assassins Sin had hooked Reaver up with had been traveling through Sheoul for five days. Felt like five years. They’d been attacked by seventy-one different breeds of demons, over a hundred plant species, and more demonic animals than Reaver could keep track of.

They’d been scalded in torrential rains of boiling water. Nearly frozen by blasts of liquid nitrogen in a region of ice and snow. And they’d been singed by rivers of lava that leaked through stone retaining walls as tall as the eye could see.

Broken Blade by J.C. DanielsToday, Heroes and Heartbreakers is delighted to be the first to reveal the cover for J.C. Daniels's (Shiloh Walker's other author persona) Broken Blade, the the third book in her urban fantasy Colbana Files series.

After the soul-ripping, heart-breaking ending to Night Blade,
fans of the series are already chomping at the bit for its release.

Here is the official blurb for Broken Blade:

Kit Colbana: assassin, thief, investigator extraordinaire. Now broken. She always expected her past to catch up with her, but never like this. Haunted by nightmares and stripped of her identity, she’s retreated to Wolf Haven, the no-man’s land where she found refuge years before. But while she might
want to hide away from the rest of the world, the rest of the world isn’t taking the hint.

Dragged kicking and screaming back into life, Kit is thrust head-first into an investigation surrounding the theft of an ancient relic…one that she wants nothing to do with. Her instincts tell her it’s a bad idea to just leave the relic lying about, but finding it might be just as bad.

Forced to face her nightmares, she uncovers hidden strength and comes face to face with one of the world’s original monsters.

If she survives the job, she won’t be the same…and neither will those closest to her.

Broken Blade is slated for release in January 2014.
