Publisher Description

Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles kicks off her new series with an irreverent hero, two well-intentioned matchmakers, and a heroine as beautiful as a wild Irish rose. 

Trevor Merriam doesn’t like being ordered around by his older brother, much less to a sleepy Irish village to complete a business deal for their family company. 

Worse: the owner of the land he needs to buy doesn’t want him there. In fact, Becca O’Neill loathes him so much that she won’t even serve him the award-winning scones her famed Wild Irish Rose Bed and Breakfast is known for.

Even worse than that (and not getting scones is bad in Trevor’s book): Becca has an ornery cat, a mischievous Irish setter, and a lovesick alpaca that delights in chasing him around. Then there’s the woman herself. If she weren’t so indignant about his business offer, they might have a good romance budding. 

Worst of all: his Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara Hale show up from Dare Valley hoping to help him get hitched—not exactly the help he was looking for.

How in the world is he going to make this deal with his heart—and his dignity—staying intact?

Love Irish Rose

As a huge fan of Ava Miles, I was so excited to see a new series in Dare Valley! I was not disappointed at all. I feel in love with Trevor and Becca right from the beginning. Arthur and Clara are a wonderful addition to the story! As with all of Ava's stories, I adore how she intertwines love, humor and family values. You will also come to adore this story as well.

An Irish love story ... and a lovesick alpaca

Oh, my. So few romance novels reduce me to actual tears. I had to get a tissue to wipe my eyes in order to finish this beautiful love story. The story of businessman Trevor Merriam, usually a deal closer for family business Merriam Enterprises is a real surprise. His mission is to secure a parcel of land in bucolic Ireland for oil drilling brings him up against the lovely Becca O’Neill, an Irish lass with indomitable spirit. Throw in a dog, an inscrutable cat and a lovesick alpaca and you set the stage for an amazing story. Ava Miles truly scores with this one. I couldn’t put it down! I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.
