A 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?

This book was hard to put down. This book in this series is as good as the first one. It has great characters that are easy to relate to and a great story line. Can't wait for the next book.

This is a nice clean romance story with two people trying to get over past relationships. Lulu is a spunky woman who walks dogs. I think really most of the dogs walk her though. She has moved to this charming town to get away from bad memories and to start a new life. Brad is the fire chief and his good looks make women swoon around him. Well not everyone because for some reason Lulu tries to avoid him. When her apartment is destroyed in the fire, she can’t help but run into Brad. He is sympathetic and worries if she will find a place to stay. I really loved how the community came together to help Lulu. Can you image sifting through your burned out apartment and suddenly see a group of women with cleaning supplies ? They are there to help their friend Lulu. She is overwhelmed by the outpouring support of the town. As we get to know Lulu and Brad better, we find out they are both hurting from something. They each have trouble trusting and it may be hard for them to let their guard down. Brad is such a caring person and I loved how gentle he was around Lulu. He didn’t rush anything and allowed them to get to know each other slowly. You can feel the uneasiness as Brad and Lulu start to realize they may have feelings for each other. The story is a beautiful picture of finding yourself and letting go of the past. Be sure and grab a copy and follow Brad and Lulu as they search for peace and a new beginning, I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.

Longing for a Hero by Debra Clopton Sunset Bay Series Book Two Brad Sinclair, fire chief of Sunset Bay, puts his all into his job. Sure he dates, but his heart is locked up tight. After his fiancée left him to marry someone else...he'd decided one broken heart was enough for a lifetime. Lulu Raintree had run away to Sunset Bay two years ago. She left the embarrassing episode of her ex-fiancé back there, but the memories were with her every moment. Tormenting her and reminding her to never give her heart away again. And yet, for the two years she's been here, she can't seem to stop watching the handsome fire chief from the sidelines...or from wherever she might be hiding at that moment. Two hurt people who no longer trust. A small town with loving people who want the best for those they love...especially a group of four older ladies who like to dabble a bit with matchmaking. Love these first two stories and can't wait for the next one.

Longing 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 Hero (Sunset Bay Romance Book 2) by Debra Clopton I enjoyed this book about Brad and Lulu who both had a somewhat the same problems in their previous relationships. It took them a bit of time and helpful family and friends to see that they could trust each other for their futures. The book had a surprise about another Sinclair brother!

I loved Lulu in book 1 and was so excited that she got her own book!!! Lulu has been secretly crushing on Brad. She is so funny about how she goes about "seeing" him. They both were left at the altar and are really leery about giving love another chance. He finally "sees" her and then the story really begins. They are the most adorable couple and love how they are truly each others true love. I highly recommend this book!!! Loved loved loved it!!!!

You can't beat a book by Debra Clopton. They are always filled with fun, inspiration, comedy, love and happy ever after. This one is about a dog walker Lulu and the Fire Chief, Brad. Lulu moved back to town after being left at the altar. The ex HTB ran off with the bridesmaid. She could not face them after, as they all worked in the same law office. Lulu is fascinated by Brad but unable to face him after she was embarrassed in front of him. Brad is gun shy, as he also was left at the altar. His ex WTB went to LA to sell real estate. But, they get together after her apartment burns down, and love wins out in the end. I recommend this book.
