USA Today Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents the #1 National Bestseller NORA ROBERTS LAND.

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 make Meredith's personal Nora Roberts Land go up in flames.

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite Nora Roberts Land (Dare Valley) is a romantic story inside a romantic story. Meredith Hale is a huge fan of all of Nora Roberts' books and returns home to Dare Valley, Colorado to find her own real life hero.  Meredith’s ex-husband, Rick the Dick, blames the marriage falling apart because she had read too many Nora Roberts' novels and is looking for a story-book life. Meredith is a journalist for a newspaper that is a rival to Rick the Dick’s newspaper. She takes a leave of absence and returns to Dare Valley to help her grandfather run the family newspaper while her father recovers from a heart attack.  Meredith sets a goal to prove that an everyday girl can have a Nora Roberts love story happen to them and publish a story about it. Rick the Dick wants to prove her wrong. He blackmails Tanner McBride, a journalist, who has just come back from writing about the wars, and wants a state-side job, into going to Dare Valley and charming Meredith, making her fall in love, and then breaking her heart. It does not go the way Rick hoped when there is an immediate attraction between Tanner and Meredith. Author Ava Miles then takes us on twists and turns, suspense and surprises before we find out if in fact Nora Roberts Land is a possibility or not.  Nora Roberts Land has all the elements of a great love story and an exciting suspenseful murder case. The plot will keep you reading long into the night. The characters are all well developed, strong and likable individuals, with some nasty villains thrown in for good reading. Ava Miles has a winner with her first book and I am excited about the next one French Toast (Dare Valley) due out soon. If you like Nora Roberts type books, this is a must-read.

This 330 page romance has a good bite of mystery thrown in. There are the typical sex, bickering and several perfect couples as well as a who dunit, loosely based on a Nora Roberts' book outline. The ex husband, running for state office, a jerk and blackmailer got off scot free, which royally ticked me off. This book cost $2.99. It is better than most romances. There are some left out words. My nook jumped a few pages and I could not find nor retrieve them, no matter how much I tried. There is murder, violence, the use of drugs and alcohal. Lots of hidden secrets, manlipuations and blackmail, which semed really silly, if you are going to blackmail someone, go after the right person with a very strong situation, not penny ante stuff. The sex is pretty explicit but not nasty. There is a lot of profanity. Especially, GD and variations of F@#K. Which are not needed. This is a stand alone book. The conclusion was to be expected. No surprizes, there either. It is part of a series. The next installment is titled, " FRENCH ROAST ". For ages 18 and up. AD

I thought after treading a number of her books, this would be another good one. Wrong, page 36 was as far as I got. Too much carrying on about Nora Roberts and breaking up the continuity of th story. This was a complete waste of my time. Not worth recommending.

This is not an enjoyable read for me, so much so that I am putting it down at page 70 of 300 some with no intention of picking back up. Actually pretty childish actions and language for a divorced woman of this age. And if I heard one moe reference to her designer underware I thought I'd scream. Everyone likes fancy, silky, colorfull, sexy undies, but please give it a rest from mentioning every few pages. This story was a free offer, so I don 't feel bad about giving up on it.

So like many others out there Nora Roberts is one of my favorites, you know it’s a good read. So this book had a good bit to live up to based on the title and I’m happy to say did just that. The characters were believable and relatable, many of them you would want to know. I will read more from this series, if they live up to this one she to will make my list of faves.

As a Nora Roberts fan, the title intrigued me. The story was well written, the characters were compelling. All the references to Nora's books added spice to the story. I plan on purchasing the next story in the series.

As a huge Nora fan I thought this was a creative concept & for the most part, an enjoyable free read. What I liked: I LOVED the relationship between the sisters & all of the Nora references from some of my all time favorites. The sex scenes, in my opinion, kept on the better side of steamy & romantic without being ourtight trashy. However, there is such a thing as a little too much of a good thing. I felt that this author missed a few key opportunities when the story had me all in but the, at times, seemingly gratuitous sex scenes pulled me out of the intensity of a few wonderfully dramatic moments. What I didn't like: I'm with many of you who posted regarding her characters way too frequent use of unnecessarily foul language, especially from a supposed award winning, talented journalist. While I enjoyed the banter between characters, it felt unrealistic & a bit forced in a few scenes. Add to that, there were a few too many cliche's for my taste. It felt like lazy writing & again pulled me out of the story. I believe this author is extremely gifteded but she needs a better editor who isn't afraid to be a little more merciless in gutting superfluous & unnecessary, over the top illiterations. Hopefully he or she can convince this author that she has an absolute ability in painting pictures with words although she needs to do so in a way that is worthy of the talent that kept peeking through despite some "challenging" literary moments. Being a series junkie & gobbling Nora's up by the Nook-full, I don't see myself all that interested in ordering Jill's story.

Would have given it a 4 if it didnt have so many F-bombs in it. WHY?????? Just so unnecessary and very low-class.

After seeing multiple reviews in regard to poor language in the book i deleted it without reading. Why do people feel that the F word is needed multiple times in speeking?

If you love Nora Robert's novels like I do, you'll love Ava Miles. I haven't enjoyed a book this much since the last Nora Robert's book I read. It makes you believe in love everlasting all over again.

<strong>Fantastic</strong> A fantastic read I recommend to everyone.  Great characters and a great storyline that has all sorts of twists. This book has romance, suspense, blackmail and tons of drama all wrapped up in a tidy enjoyable story. So glad to have discovered Ava Miles and can't wait to read the next one.
