International Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents the #1 National Bestseller NORA ROBERTS LAND about a woman’s quest to find her happily ever after, Nora Roberts style. Selected as one of the Best Books of the Year (USA Today). 

Journalist Meredith Hale's ex-husband claimed her Nora Roberts addiction gave her unrealistic expectations about marriage, and she believed him. All dreams of happily ever after—or Nora Roberts Land as her mother calls it—went up in smoke. But when her family asks her to temporarily help their Dare Valley, Colorado newspaper, she decides it’s time to change her life and prove her ex wrong. She's determined to find her own small-town Nora Roberts hero, prove that true love exists, and publish a story about her quest.

War correspondent Tanner McBride has just returned stateside to work for a major newspaper, and the last thing he expects is blackmail. Yet, before he can even unpack, he’s headed to Colorado. His assignment? Make his boss’s ex-wife fall for him and then break her heart. Her article about discovering love à la Nora might air dirty laundry about her marriage to the media mogul, threatening his senate run. The mogul wants Meredith stopped, and he makes sure Tanner has no choice in the matter.

When the two meet, the sparks between them are undeniable. Meredith, who vowed never to date another journalist, begins to succumb. Could Tanner be her Nora Roberts hero? As they work together to uncover the truth behind a suspicious death, the depth of their feelings unfolds and both realize they've kept their secrets for far too long. But before the truth can be revealed, their investigation takes a deadly turn, one that might make Meredith's personal Nora Roberts Land go up in flames.

Another great Ava Miles book

Ava Miles did it again. She has well rounded, likable characters in interesting situations. Meredith returns home temporarily to fill in at her family’s business & recover from her divorce from her cheating husband. Tanner comes to her hometown about the same time, being blackmailed by Meredith’s ex husband, his assignment being to make her fall in love with him & break her heart. The big problem is that they fall in love for real. Now throw in a crooked cop, a group dealing laced drugs, and a couple of deaths & you’ve got yourself a very dangerous problem for our new couple to investigate. Love & intrigue, a very good combination for an author to keep us reading long into the night.
