Heartseeker Dragons are a male-only breed of dragon given out on Valentine's Day 2012. Each scroll is limited to 2 Heartseekers; any other Heartseeker eggs that were obtained were automatically abandoned after 15 minutes. Heartseeker dragons, being a holiday breed, are only available around Valentine's Day.
The underbelly was originally going to be pink, but TJ09 decided the beige scales looked better.
When sorted by "Breed" they are listed as "Valentine 2012 dragon" on a users scroll.
Official descriptions Edit
"This scarlet egg has a faintly sweet aroma."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It gives off an alluring scent that attracts other dragons."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It gives off an alluring scent that attracts other dragons. And look! Chocolate-brown fins have grown on its back and tail, and the scent is much stronger now."
"Heartseeker Dragons are very social creatures that emanate a sweet chocolatey scent. Their captivating perfume easily attracts adult dragons that don't yet have a mate. Heartseekers use their keen sense of smell to detect solitary dragons and potential mates in the area. By rubbing their fins against objects such as trees and rocks, they leave a scent trail for the other dragons to follow to meet each other. Although these dragons are seen year-round, the scent of a Heartseeker becomes particularly potent during the middle of February. During this time, a single Heartseeker may play matchmaker to dozens of dragons, but he will also choose a special mate of his own."

Additional Information Edit
The heart belly scales are based on white chocolate. I am guessing TJ chose those codes since I showed him a few different variations, and we picked the "white chocolate" one. (The scales were originally pink but this looks much better, trust me.)
After members started to obtain their adults, she revealed more additional information about her creation in this forum post:
As mentioned in their description - Heartseekers are very social. Other dragons are attracted to their scent, so they are usually the life of the party, so to speak. Despite their muscular physique, they are quite soft-hearted and sensitive under their tough-looking exterior.
In addition to other dragons, prey is often attracted to a Heartseeker's scent, making hunting easier both for him and other dragons in the area. The scent can be detrimental as it may also attract predators. However, a Heartseeker is physically strong enough to deter most threats through brute force if necessary, in addition to potentially having a posse of other dragons protecting him.
The Heartseeker's unique scent comes from a musky liquid excreted from glands on his back, near the spines of his fins. Much like a preening bird, the Heartseeker rubs this liquid all over his fins during routine grooming sessions, replenishing anything lost if he has left scent trails. Scent trails usually fade after a few days, but they will disappear faster in the rain.
When a Heartseeker meets a new dragon, he uses his keen sense of smell to find their den. If the dragon lives alone, and no other dragon scents are nearby, he will conclude that the dragon likely does not have a mate. Using a musky scent trail, he will often lead two mate-less dragons to each other. However, this does not guarantee they will get along.
Each Heartseeker's scent is a little different, which helps them identify each other. They tend to avoid each other, as other creatures may not be able to tell their scents apart. This would potentially cause confusion if two Heartseekers crossed paths while leading dragons to meet each other.
