Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.
International Bestselling Author Ava Miles shares the story her readers begged her for, the sweet and suspenseful romance about the beloved founder of the Hale family and the woman who captured his heart.
Journalist Arthur Hale is determined to be on the forefront of change. A successful New York City journalist, he returns to his hometown of Dare Valley, Colorado to start a new newspaper that will channel the voice of the West, joining the ranks of prestigious papers like The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune.
But the bigger the dream, the higher the price. Arthur's ambition and drive isolate him, and the only person who can break through his self-imposed solitude is Harriet Jenkins, his talented and mysterious secretary. Though Arthur's sixth sense as a journalist tells him the beautiful and complicated redhead is hiding something, he can't stay away.
What he doesn't know is that Harriet Jenkins is actually Harriet Wentworth. A newspaper article ruined her father and sullied her family name, and now she's out for revenge on the journalist who wrote it: Arthur Hale. As she gets to know Arthur, Harriet discovers he's not the monster she thought he was. He's a man of integrity, committed to uncovering the truth at all costs. Soon the impossible happens, and she finds herself falling for the man she set out to destroy, but can the two build a future on a foundation of lies and ugly truths?

I have read nine of Ava Miles' books now; some from the dare valley series, others from the dare river series. I love how the stories connect and the characters are intertwined. I have laughed out loud and cried many times while reading.
I was so happy to read "The Town Square" and not find any typos or errors. I had noticed a few in other books that I read previously. Thank you for improved editing! I look forward to reading "The Park of Sunset Dreams." Thank you for the hours of enjoyment I have experienced through reading these lovely stories.
I'am not much of a writer, that's why i read a lot.
I didn't think you could do more for me then you did in Nora Roberts land. But you did. Very good job. Thanks
