As a troubled youth, Jarrett slinked away from his hometown in disgrace. He left his family and the love of his life a decade earlier and hadn’t been heard from since. He straightened out his life and returned home to pay his respects on the anniversary of his twin brother’s death and encountered his family at the cemetery. He was not greeted with open arms. Now a DEA agent, he inadvertently brought danger to his parents and Marissa, the girl he left behind who had married his late brother and borne him a son. A Hero’s Heart is a story of love and loss, forgiveness and redemption, betrayal, and the courage to face one’s demons instead of looking away. The author has deftly woven a smoking hot love story into a heart-pounding life and death, nail-biting tale of the fight between good versus evil. The flawed characters are believable and ones readers can root for. If you like your stories spiced with hot sex and have an affinity for characters willing to go to the mat for those they love, this book is for you.

I am voluntarily leaving this review. This was a great book! It is filled with second chances, suspense, steam, love, heartbreak and redemption. It will have you hooked from page one and keep you on the edge of your seat with all the twists and turns! Jarrett is the black sheep of his family who chose a wrong path in life instead of following his father’s footsteps and diving into law enforcement. Years later and with his life in the right path, he goes home to pay his respects to a fallen family member. He gets his second chance with his high school sweetheart and a chance at redeeming his father’s love. But did he make the wrong choice when he puts his loved ones in the crosshairs of danger? You’ll be on the edge of your seat the whole time. I love reading Amber Daulton’s books because you never know what to expect.
