Publisher Description

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…

Love this series!!

I have to be honest I first started to read this series because it had Nora Roberts name as the title. But once I continued to read Eva Miles book series, I fell in love with everyone in Dare Valley. I am going to miss everyone from this great little town and the coolest family (that I would love to be apart of). Yet, I can’t want for the new series to come out. I am so happy that Grandpa Arthur and Clara will still be in it but I Hope from time to time Dare Valley can make an appearance.

I’ve read them all!

When I first started reading Ava’s books I wasn’t completely sold, “Nora Roberts Land” was a little raw and had a little too much of the ‘F’ word for my liking, but I kept reading because I fell in love with the characters. I’ve read all of Ava’s Dare books and I can’t get enough. The stories are great and the characters are quirky and love-able. Do you yourself a favor and read them all from the beginning!

Loved It!

I have recently become a fan of Ava Miles and started reading this series first. I immediately fell in love with her style of writing! I was very excited to see the newest installment to the Dare Valley series. I became instantly involved with poor JT's plight to get away from his ex-wife and start all over again with the woman he was meant to be with. One thing that I also enjoy is a strong heroine. Caroline is not a pushover and is willing to deal with JT's stalking ex-wife. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves romance, family values and a little nail biting to hope for a HEA, then this is definitely the read for you!!!
