Review: Longing for a Hero by Debra Clopton

Longing for a HeroLonging for a Hero is a wonderful gem of a story about broken hearts and the willingness to learn to trust and love once more. Both Brad and Lulu have determined never to give their hearts away again. It is just too much of a risk. But, in this fun story they have to battle their growing attraction to each other if they want to protect themselves from possibly being betrayed again.

Longing for a Hero can be read as a stand alone novel, however, both Brad and Lulu appear in book one, Longing for Forever, and it is fun to build on their backstory in this book and learn more about both of them. This book has a nice balance of fun moments and heartfelt emotion. I definitely recommend both books that have come out in the Sunset Bay Romance series so far.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Longing for a HeroA dog walker with a secret crush and a jilted fireman with no desire to risk watching his heart go up in flames ever again.

Fire Chief Brad Sinclair had his future planned and then his fiancée married someone else and left him and his heart in ashes. He’s started over, seems to have picked up the pieces…but now his brother is getting married and his happy news is stirring up emotions Brad would rather he didn’t feel. When the cute dog walker’s apartment goes up in flames, he suddenly finds himself feeling the heat from attraction and the local ladies who think she’s just what the local hero needs to put his life back on track.

Lulu Raintree is feeling mixed up and out of control—is she a stalker? She’s been obsessed with the gorgeous Fire Chief ever since she moved to town. So much so that she sometimes hides behind bushes just to get a glimpse of him but she avoids coming face to face with him at all cost. When her apartment catches fire there is no place to hide as the handsome hero comes to her rescue.

But things are not as they seem and her past that sent her running to hide in the beautiful beach town of Sunset Bay might be the key to her infatuation with the handsome Brad Sinclair.

Heartaches are hard to get over, can love find a way to mend the broken hearted…and slightly obsessed?
