Royal Rebels and Why We Still Have a Chance

The Prince's Runaway Lover by Robin Covington

Today we're thrilled to welcome Robin Covington to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Robin's latest release, The Prince’s Runaway Lover, came out on July 14 and features a rebel prince, complete with tattoos and a love of extreme sports. Robin is here today to talk about other rebel princes (both real and fictional) and why they give her hope that she could still marry into royalty! Thanks, Robin!

In my house the Main Man and I have an agreement about my “ding-dong boyfriend” (DDB).  You know ¼ the fantasy guy who can show up on your doorstep, ring the doorbell, and whisk you away with no hard feelings.  You might call him/her your hall pass or some other term but you get the idea. He’s your “Calgon, take me away guy” when you’re folding your nineteenth basket of laundry. The one you picture in your head every time you dive into the latest, juiciest romance novel.

That guy.

I’ve gone through several DDB’s over the years: John Cusack in my post-Lloyd Dobler days, David Boreanaz when I was digging Buffy, even Jimmy Smits that season when he died on NYPD Blue. In more recent times, Joe Manganiello and his abs moved into the spot until he ran off and got engaged and then Chris Evans and his swoony Captain America persona was the guy.

Six Anti-Heroes That Would Make Anybody’s Daddy Cry

Sex and the Single Vamp by Robin CovingtonToday we're welcoming Robin Covington to H&H. Robin's Sex and the Single Vamp is out today, featuring a vampire heroine who runs a dating agency and the centuries-old vampire who broke her heart—but gets another chance to rectify his mistake. Vampires feature high on the list of boys your dad wouldn't want you to date, and Robin offers a few of her picks for more of those really bad boys. Thanks, Robin!

I grew up in the South, smack dab in the middle of farms, pick-ups trucks and men who hunt. When I started dating, the joke was that any boy who treated me wrong did so at his own peril. We had acres—lots of acreage—and plenty of shovels. So my dates knew to walk the line or my Daddy (along with my State Trooper Uncle) would take of care of the problem and this made them behave themselves—at least as far as my Daddy knew. *grin*

But even my most reckless of dates were “bad boy lite” in comparison to some of the bad boy heroes I’ve found between the pages of a great romance. Here are my favorite anti-heroes:

1. Angelo Pagan, Pablo Castillo, and Syren Rua:
The three heroes in Avril Ashton’s male/male romance Brooklyn Sinners series (Love the Sinner; Sinner, Savior; and A Sinner Born) are all involved in organized crime. These guys aren’t playing mobster either as they alternately run gangs who move guns, drugs and people. They all end up making big changes in their lives when they fall in love but the way they made a living before that happened is the kind of stuff that gets you many, many years in prison—deservedly so. They don’t leave the life because they wake up and realize that it is wrong, they leave because they can’t have their man if they stay in a life of crime. Gritty and heartbreakingly erotic and romantic.

[Always a good combo for an anti-hero...]

Get a sneak peek of Robin Covington's Sweet Southern Betrayal (available January 13, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.


Risa jumped back at the wall of sound that hit her the moment she walked through the doorway of the Southern Comfort Diner. One minute before she’d walked into the restaurant just ahead of Teague to meet his mother for dinner, the patrons turned to look at them and then…bam! The place erupted in a jumble of people clapping, chairs pushed back on the floors with loud scrapes, and a rush of bodies heading right for them.

“What the hell?” Teague said behind her, his hands reaching out to grab her waist in a steadying gesture.

Playing the Part: Exclusive Excerpt

Robin Covington

Playing the Part by Robin Covington

After publicly self-destructing over a heartbreak a year ago, bestselling romance writer Piper James is now making nice with her publisher by agreeing to teach Hollywood's favorite action star how to act like he's in love. Only playboy Mick Blackwell has no clue what love looks like.

When a seductive heat ignites between Piper and Mick, she jumps at the chance for a bit of fun between the sheets, but with two stipulations: she’s kept out of the public eye and things end when she returns to New York. Only Mick keeps changing the rules on her. Tempted by America's favorite bad boy, Piper is wondering how far she's willing to bend...

Get a sneak peek of Robin Covington's Playing the Part (available June 10, 2013) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene. 

The sound of screaming shook the limousine windows.

Piper shrank back into the plush interior of the vehicle, nudging up against Mick’s side and under the weight of his arm as he scooped her even closer.

“It sounds like a mob scene out there.” She turned to look at Mick, who was calm, cool, and sexily confident. Damn him. “I thought this was just a club opening.”
