Hero of Her Heart by Lindsey Brookes

Hero of Her Heart


From the moment Bethany Warner was born, Sheriff Tanner Montgomery was on the run. And he was only four at the time. Their mothers’ matchmaking efforts finally ended when Bethany’s family moved away. Now, ten years later, she’s coming back to Ruby Creek and his mother is up to her old tricks again.

Tanner is happy with his life just the way it is. No emotional entanglements. No wife or child to worry about leaving behind if something should happen to him in the line of duty. Then Bethany returns, all grown up and sexier than sin. Now he’s on the run for a whole new reason.

Growing up, Bethany idolized Tanner. He was the HERO OF HER HEART. But to him she’d been nothing more than a tag-a-long little kid. Too tall, too thin, with unruly curls and teeth she could whistle through.

That was then. Now she’s coming back to Ruby Creek, a successful, confident businesswoman, and no longer the ugly duckling she had once been. Can Bethany convince Tanner to give love a chance? And if she does, will it be everything she had always dreamt it would be?


Hero of Her Heart was a quick, fun summer read. From the moment Bethany was born both her parents and Tanner's parents were pushing them together. Tanner did not like this at all, especially since he was only four years old when it all started. His whole life his mom has been trying to get him together with Bethany, the tall lanky girl who follows him everywhere.

Bethany has always loved Tanner. She follows him around and hopes that one day he will notice her. Her family moved away at the end of high school and she hasn't been back in a number of years. Now she is back and incredibly beautiful so of course Tanner notices her as more than a friend.

Tanner doesn't want to get married ever. Bethany knows this, but hopes once he notices her he will change his mind. He doesn't want to leave a wife and kid behind like his dad did. He knows his job has risks and he doesn't want someone else to suffer because of that.

Bethany hasn't really dated much. She has always been in love with Tanner so she has never hooked up with anyone else. She has a successful business and she is happy with that. When she comes back and Tanner finally seems to notice her she is so happy. She is more confident and flirty with him than she has ever been and she eventually wears him down. It was just a fun read. A bit silly and you know what is going to happen, of course there is some drama, but it is still enjoyable.
