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


International Bestselling Author Ava Miles’ acclaimed family series, The Merriams, returns with a fun and feel good romantic comedy filled with second chances, everyone’s favorite matchmakers, and lots of high stakes and adventure. 


Boyd McClellan is a smooth-talking, wicked-smart, lying jerk.  


True, Michaela Merriam isn’t objective where her ex-boyfriend and former business partner is concerned, but she’s justified given he screwed her—and her family’s corporation—over.


Except Boyd is back and dangling the discovery of a lifetime: the location of a rare flower known to cure all illness. He claims that without her, he can’t bring it back. 


Yeah, right.


Trusting him seems stupid. She did before and look where that got her: brokenhearted and with a demotion. But she doesn't have any choice but to accompany him to the fabled Valley of Stars after her bossy Mr. President brother orders her to go to make up for her love-sick snafu. 


She's definitely not stupid enough to go alone. She's bringing her own chaperones: her beloved Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara. One caveat: absolutely NO matchmaking.


Trekking in the savannah isn’t like “The Lion King.” Worse, the deeper they go in, the sexier the safari becomes. Michaela doesn’t understand Boyd’s game, and he’s playing his cards close to his vest. She hopes her aunt and uncle will be able to help her figure out his endgame before anyone—namely, her—gets hurt. Because lying with him under the African night sky, she realizes that she’s falling for him all over again. But can she trust it—and him?

International Bestselling Author Ava presents a sweet contemporary romance guaranteed to make you believe in love all over again.

Professional gambler Rhett Butler Blaylock is everything Abbie Maven doesn't want in a man-flamboyant, flashy, and unreserved. After a horrible experience in her youth, she has spent her life trying to make all the right choices, pouring her energy into being the best possible single mother to her son. But though Rhett doesn't seem to be husband and stepfather material, he awakens emotions in her that are as frightening as they are powerful. They had a fling she's never forgotten, and now he has followed her to Dare Valley, Colorado with the intention of winning back her heart...this time, forever. 

Rhett's determined to show Abbie he can be the man of her dreams. He'll do whatever it takes for the woman he loves, including giving up his flamboyant lifestyle and bad-boy image. As Christmas approaches, he prepares a special surprise for her, hoping the holiday will work its magic and grant him a miracle. Will his holiday serenade heal Abbie's heart and convince her to give love a second chance?

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?

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles’ new family series, The Merriams, is back with a good guy trying to get his bad boy on, a good girl starting a risky perfume venture, and everyone’s favorite matchmakers.

  

Beau Masters wants to be a bad boy.


All his life, he’s been careful to be the good guy country singer, the boy-next-door, who opens doors for ladies and says “aw, shucks, ma’am.” But a decades-old secret blows the hinges off the door to his life. Everything he thought he knew has scattered to the wind, leaving him questioning who he really is.


So when Caitlyn Merriam asks him to be the celebrity spokesperson for the new perfume she’s creating in far-off Provence, he swaps out his white cowboy hat for a black one and packs his bags to get away from the past. 

Caitlyn didn’t expect the gorgeous rockstar to join her in her quaint farmhouse in the French countryside. She figures it will only worsen her crush on him. But as Beau tries to get his bad boy on (rather unsuccessfully, in her opinion), she knows something is wrong and calls in back-up. Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara might be bent on matchmaking these days, but they know how to straighten someone out, and Caitlyn needs all the help she can get to keep her spokesperson on track. 


But soon it’s not just about business, and they’re holding hands and walking the lavender fields together. Until Beau’s secret threatens to bring down her new venture and the love blossoming between them.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles shares an emotional tale about a woman’s quest to reunite her family and make a patchwork quilt of happiness out of her own happily ever after.  

Riley Thomson believes every woman can be her own superhero. 

When he meets Sadie McGuiness, he’s even more sure of it. 

The sassy quilter might not fight good and evil, like he depicts as a comic book artist, but she leaps tall buildings in a single bound. He sees it in her brave quest to locate her long-lost sister and the way she champions his motherless daughter. It’s not just her superhuman strength he’s attracted to—it’s the strength of her heart. She stitches together the different blocks of her life with love, much like the magical quilts she creates. Soon he’s modeling his new female superhero after her. 

As Sadie and Riley create their own patchwork of happiness, dark forces from their past return to test them. Can they battle them together to ensure a happily ever after for them and the rest of their 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…
