Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.
International Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents the much-anticipated installment of the bestselling Dare Valley series about two people coming home and fighting for a second chance at love.
J.T. Merriam has a bottle of champagne on ice for the moment his soul-sucking divorce is final—and he plans to share it with the woman who has made him believe in happily ever after again. Not only is Caroline Hale his partner in opening the new Merriam Art Museum in Dare Valley, but she’s helping him heal, showing him that love isn’t a four-letter word.
The only problem: his ex is determined to destroy every thing he has—including his relationship with Caroline. J.T. tries to cut her off, but it seems she’s always one step ahead. When she shows up in Dare Valley with all her furs and ferocity, everyone is worried, especially J.T.’s rough-and-tumble twin brother and Arthur Hale, his adopted uncle and newspaper giant.
One brief mistake isn’t going to determine his life, and it’s certainly not going to stop J.T. from wooing the woman he loves. Between the clown (don’t ask) and the gelato (yes, please), he’s doing his best to keep both of their spirits up. But then his ex goes after Caroline, and all bets are off…
