#1 Nook Bestseller

USA Today Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents the #1 National Bestseller NORA ROBERTS LAND. Also a Top 25 Bestseller for Amazon Kindle, #1 on Barnes & Noble Nook, and Top 10 on iTunes.

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.

"It {NORA ROBERTS LAND} captures the best of what I love in a Nora Roberts novel..."
USA Today Contributor - Becky Lower
One of the Best Books of 2013 alongside Nora Roberts’ DARK WITCH and Julia Quinn’s SUM OF ALL KISSES.
Joyfully Reviewed - Shayna *
"Ava Miles's debut novel is warm, funny, and wholly entertaining."
Happily Ever After, USA Today Blog - Michelle Monkou
"Debut author Ava Miles combines small-town romance with big-world issues in a full-bodied romance fiction in the first of the Dare Valley series... and paints a wonderful idyllic setting for this small-town series with great characters."
Love Romances & MORE - Dawn *
"Ms. Miles does a great job in creating a story that shows how much the heroine loves Nora Roberts books and how determined she is in finding her own small town hero of her own ala Nora Roberts. The writing is tight, story flows smoothly and the few twists and turns left me on the edge of my seat, waiting for baited breath for what happens next."

What a great book! Since Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, I loved all the references to her books...I had read every one of them and it brought back so many of those characters to my mind. Avas story of Nora Roberts Land was so interesting, I couldn't put the book down until I finished it! Coming back from divorce, finding love again along with mystery and suspense and great characters makes this a great read....the epilogue was great! I highly recommend this book, the series and any book by Ava Miles or Norea Roberts. cmj

Okay, I'll admit... I got this one for free a while ago, then set it aside because, while I liked the premise, I thought I'd need to be an avid Nora Roberts' reader to truly get the book. I've read maybe 4 Nora Roberts books, and do intend to read more but... time, family, children, responsibilities, etc. Recently however, someone recommended another book from Ava Miles to me, it was book 2 in her Dare River series... I did a little poking around, found out that series comes AFTER this one and my OCD kicked in. I dug this book out of my mountain of a TBR pile and decided to read it. I figured, no sense getting the other book if I didn't like this one, right? Well... I loved it. You don't have to be a Nora Roberts superfan to hop into this one, it's great, well written, funny and heartfelt. I'll definitely be going after the rest of the books in this series and the next. I've certainly found myself a new author! :)

I was very impressed. I loved the premise, the writing was great. I will have to add Ms. Miles to my preferred authors list.

An entertaining read. I haven't read any Nora Roberts books, so can't compare the writing style. This had some of the usual Romance novel plot; falling in love then getting mad over some inconsequential "thing" then  finding the truth and falling back into love again. Blah, blah, blah.

If you are a Nora Roberts fan you'll love the references to her books. Even if you aren't a NR fan, the story is well worth the read. Enjoy!

This was an interesting and well developed story with only a few unanswered questions at the end. I would definitely read another of her stories.

The plot was very well written. It was a steamy romance within a mystery. But it was very heartwarming too! A nice read!

Would have been better without the descriptive sex - had to skip too many pages to get back to the story.
