Country HeaveneBook - 2014
"Fans who like the family dynamics of the Sullivans by Bella Andre, the small town charm of Cedar Cove by Debbie Macomber, and the sweet romance of Fool's Gold by Susan Mallery will enjoy Ava Miles. USA Today Bestselling Author Ava Miles of the #1 National Bestseller NORA ROBERTS LAND presents the Dare River series set in the South, connected to her bestselling small town Dare Valley series, against the backdrop of country music, Nashville, foodie splendor, family, and sweet forgiveness. Also including thirteen country music songs and a dozen recipes. When famous--and infamous--country singer rock star Rye Crenshaw saunters into the diner where she cooks, Tory Simmons is certain she's got him pegged. He's a bad boy Alpha male who indulges himself in all things, women included. But while she couldn't care less about country music or arrogant men, Rye makes her an offer she can't refuse when he asks her to be his private chef on his multi-city concert tour. The job is the answer to all her prayers: it will clear out her debt and finance the fresh start she desperately needs. Rye is certain his sassy new cook is the last woman who'd ever tempt him, but spending time with the wholesome girl next door will do wonders for his damaged public image, whether she likes being forced into the spotlight or not. Her food also happens to be the best he's ever eaten, both comforting and seductive. But spending time with Tory on the road shows him a new side to her--one that's as impossible to resist as her food. And when an emergency in his family whisks him home, he does the one thing he's never risked: he lets a woman into his heart... Soon the emotions Rye faked for the tabloids become all too real, but will the country heaven he's found in Tory's arms survive in the real world?
