About this ebook

Leaving her small town behind means freedom, but she may be losing more than she realizes.


Mackenna Haven dreams of the day she’ll leave Havenbrook, Mississippi behind. After spending her whole life under her overbearing daddy’s thumb, she’s desperate for the independence of college.


Especially if that means spending more time with her best friend and first love—even if he doesn’t know it.


When Hudson Miller’s dad died nearly ten years ago, he became the man of the house and took on the weight of his family’s world. His only escape from his responsibilities are the stolen moments he spends with Kenna. As the red X on his calendar—and the deadline he’s set for himself to finally come clean to Kenna—looms closer, Hudson proposes one last summer trip, just the two of them.


All Hudson wants is to finally tell Kenna he’s loved her for years, but instead, the secret he’s been keeping could tear them apart forever.

Pact with a Heartbreaker is book three in the Havenbrook series and is the beginning love story for Mac and Hudson. More of Mac and Hudson can be found in Captain Heartbreaker.

About the author

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 chai tea—steamy and satisfying—and adores strong-willed heroines and the heroes who fall head over heels for them. Brighton lives in the Midwest with her real life hero of a husband, her two kids—one who’s already 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.
