Finn Thomas grew up so far on the wrong side of the tracks, he couldn’t see them from his trailer window. But he left that life behind…or so he thought. When he returns to the small southern town of Havenbrook to open the first bar in a formerly dry county, he’s no longer the boy who left—he’s a man with something to prove.
He won’t let himself be distracted by the only girl he’s ever loved.
Willow Haven learned a long time ago to protect her heart at all costs. So when her ex comes strolling back into town, all cockiness and charm, her walls are firmly in place. When she’s forced to work with Finn on his bar renovation—the last piece in her downtown revitalization project—she knows better than to give into the heated attraction that threatens to combust whenever they’re together. She’ll prove to him and herself she’s not the brokenhearted girl he left behind.
And if Willow forgets her resolve, her daddy—the mayor—will do anything to protect his little girl’s heart, not to mention his town, from the former bad boy of Havenbrook.
Find out why New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton says, “Brighton Walsh delivers hot, captivating romance," in this small town romance between a good girl and the bad boy who’s seeking redemption.
Second Chance Charmer is book one in the Havenbrook series, but it can be read and enjoyed without reading any other Havenbrook books. Each full length book in this series can be read on its own.

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.
