I was a good girl who played by the rules. Except when it came to Davis Montgomery.

A handsome former Marine with a rough touch and a filthy mouth. A man I loved. But when he didn’t ask me to stay, I took it as a sign to leave my small town and chase my dream. What a mistake that turned out to be. Now, I’m back, running from the flames of my past to find a fresh start. But fresh doesn’t always mean easy. Not when I’m now the town outcast. Not when I can’t hide my bruises or the baby I’m carrying.

I'm Ava, a contemporary romance author who currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband and daughter. I’ve been writing since before I can remember, and these days, I’m all about creating dreamy universes you can swoon, cry or sigh over.

Fun facts about me: I have a coffee addiction, travel obsession, and an over reliance on love stories. And in my love stories…only strong heroines and rugged, alpha heroes allowed. If you feel the same way, we’re about to get along just great.
