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?

  • A sweet look at the start of one of my favorite couples!

    By Dzneychica
    Rhett has been one of my favorite characters throughout Ms. Miles' books (isn't he everyone's?!) and being able to read about the start of him and Abbie falling in love was wonderful! I love being able to really delve into the backstory of characters, to see how they got to where they are. I can't wait to read about the next couple! Please note: I received an eBook copy for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
  • What sweet story

  • How wonderful to read the back story of Rhett and Abbie

    By Angel Mandy 27
    How wonderful to read Rhett and Abbie's back story! I had always wondered what had gone on in their romance. Ava Miles draws you right back into their storyline, readers had been wondering what went on that hadn't been told! Thank you Ava for taking back to Dare Valley! Very much looking forward to J.T. Merriam’s return to Dare Valley!
