Romance Book Review: Amber Daulton's A Hero's Heart
Author: Amber Daulton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Self Published
Purchase Link: Amazon
Jarrett Brandt intends to only go home for a short time to pay respects to his dead twin brother. The black sheep of the family Jarrett could never measure up to his brother Joel in his father's eyes. His poor relationship with his father and his drug addition as a teen lead him to leave home as well as the love of his life Marissa.
When he returns home he runs smack into his family. His father still seems to hate Jarrett and thinks the worst of him, however Marissa reaches for him with open arms. Marissa confesses to never stop loving him, even though she eventually married Joel and had his child.
After a night of passion, Jarrett and Marissa confess their love for each other, but with trouble following him Jarrett can't possibly stay without putting those he loves in danger.
A fairly good and quick read, but I wish there was a little more to the story.
When it comes to revenge, nothing is sacred, not even Christmas.
DEA field agent Jarrett Brandt returned home on his Harley Davidson to visit his brother's grave, not to reconnect with his first true love.
Now widowed with a son, Marissa Reinn Brandt expected nothing from the one who broke her heart--the twin brother of the man she married--but when her son offered him a place to stay for Christmas, she agreed for her son's benefit.
As they rekindled the flames of love and lust that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present threatened to destroy everything they held dear.
Warning: a hero with a drug-filled past, lots of hot sex with a sexy redhead, an adorable little boy and bad language.
