About this ebook

I’ve slapped my cuffs on Luna Lancaster too many times to count and not a single one was for fun. 

As the sheriff of Starlight Cove, I shouldn't crave her, but I do. She’s chaos, mayhem, and sunshine wrapped up in too-tight yoga pants. The lawbreaker might have the town enamored with her free spirit, but she’s a thorn in my side, even if she is the sexiest woman I've ever seen.

I want her out of my town and out of my head.

Trouble is, she's made it perfectly clear she's not going anywhere. And her spree of minor infractions—who runs a yoga class without a license?—is hitting dangerously close to home. Her latest protest has her chained to a tree on the boundary of my family’s resort. The last thing we need is bad press ruining the short tourism season when the resort is already one bad month away from bankruptcy.

I'll do whatever it takes to save Starlight Cove. Even if that means handcuffing Luna to my bed.

Brady and Luna kept me thoroughly entertained with their antics. He is the grumpy sheriff to her happy go lucky personality. I was laughing and cheering for Brady and Luna to make it to a happily ever after. His siblings were endearing as well! I am volunteering to leave a review for an ARC of this book.

This is the first book in the new Starlight Cove Series and starts the series off on a high note. It won't take you long to fall in love with Luna and Brady who are opposites in any way. She's a free spirit with lots of spunk and he's grumpy and stoic. Their banter is hilarious at times and their romance gets steamy. The small town is great and the people are fun and meddling. A cute romance that was a fun read. I read an arc via Bad Boy Updates and voluntarily chose to review it.

I loved Defiant Heart! It had me laughing out loud one minute, then your heart aches for Brady. This is the first book of the series and it is Brady's story. Brady has coped by keeping his life in strict order, which is the opposite of Luna! He is the sheriff in town and has arrested Luna more times than he can count, but lately there is something about her that makes him want more of her. This is funny, snarky and their chemistry is off the charts! I received this from Bad Boy Updates.

About the author

Award-winning USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brighton Walsh spent a decade as a professional photographer before taking her storytelling in a different direction and reconnecting with her first love—writing. She likes her books how she likes her tea—steamy and satisfying—and adores strong-willed heroines and the protective heroes who fall head over heels for them. Brighton lives in the Midwest with her real life hero of a husband, her two kids—both taller than her—and her dog who thinks she’s a queen. Her boy-filled house is the setting for dirty socks galore, frequent dance parties (okay, so it's mostly her, by herself, while her children look on in horror), and more laughter than she thought possible.
