Sunny Shelly’s Review: Defiant Heart by Brighton Walsh

 Release Date: June 14

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 isn’t 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.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 stars

Defiant Heat is an entertaining start to a new series. It’s been a few years since I’ve read a Brighton Walsh book, and I really enjoyed getting reacquainted with her style in Luna and Brady’s grumpy/sunshine story.

Brady is a by-the-book smalltown sheriff. Luna is a free-spirited yoga instructor. There is nothing these two have in common aside from their intense dislike for each other, but sometimes that is what makes the best kind of opposites-attract story! These two just love to press each other’s buttons, and it is so hot. Defiant Heart is steamy and sexy, with the perfect balance of sweet and swoon.

Luna and Brady are definitely one couple I will be coming back to for a reread! I loved Starlight Cove, and can’t wait to see what books come next in this small town series! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet Brighton Walsh

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—one who’s already taller than her and one who’s catching up too fast—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.
