Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.
International Bestselling Author Ava Miles shares a heartwarming prequel about two of Dare Valley’s favorite characters and their early journey falling in love.
Abbie Maven is every bit a lady.
Rhett Butler Blaylock doesn’t mingle much with ladies.
Being a professional poker player, the only lady he spends time with is Lady Luck. Yet, despite their differences, he can’t fight the temptation of getting closer to Abbie. He imagines she smells as fresh as a hot July peach and tastes even more tantalizing.
She makes him want to be a better man.
Abbie can’t ignore her brother’s best friend—the man who makes her son laugh. They are as different as ocean and desert, and yet she can’t stop her heart from opening to him… Or her body. Someone had destroyed both a long time ago. Rhett makes her come alive again.
They strike a bargain: a secret relationship on her terms. Behind closed doors, everything is perfect. But his poker persona as a bad boy undermines everything she’s raising her son to believe in. Abbie has to decide: are moonlight serenades enough?
