My Latest Work

I’m publishing a serialized work with Kindle Vella under the name Vi Va. It’s called The Synner and Her Saints and is younger with a more futuristic, suspenseful vibe than my full-length books. However, if you like how I write, I think you’ll enjoy this story too. You can find it here: https://amzn.to/3R4D2W6

Here’s the blurb:

It’s 2070. Information outnumbers grains of sand. If you want to find anything, you hire a librarian. World-famous Jessalyn Synner is the best. At 19, she was recruited by the elite Central Library, the youngest person to hold this honor. Three years later she’s got life all figured out until her mysterious high school classmate Ben Saint–and his two best friends–walk back into it. It takes three Saints to teach a Synner there’s more to life than work and more to friendship than meets the eye.

Love on the Ropes (Book 1 in the Love in Action Series)

ONE-CLICK NOW for ebook or paperback SmartURL.it/LoveOnTheRopes

He thought his life was perfect, and then she walked into the office.

Former TOPGUN pilot Clint Davenport is the newly-crowned prince of public radio now that he’s hosting America’s most popular drive-time show. The ladies can’t get enough of this Flying Ace, but he’s all out of runway for the fairer sex because of a tragedy that haunts him. But life is perfect, or at least that’s what he keeps saying. Until he finds himself on the ropes (literally) at a company retreat and the only person who can bring him in for a safe landing is his office frenemy, who seems as comfortable in a climbing harness as he used to be in an F-18.

At twenty-eight, Erin Hung was still living with her parents in Honolulu, so when her favorite cousin invited her to move to glittering Los Angeles, she made the leap. After four years, this late bloomer has blossomed. She owns her own condo in gorgeous Pasadena, has the love of a good male—her Shiba Inu, Atticus—and is the badass marketing manager for America’s #1 radio show. But she still has a lot to prove and is gunning for a promotion. She doesn’t have time for distractions, especially romantic ones…and there’s no way she’s interested in that cocky ex-fighter pilot who just got tapped as host. Unfortunately, working with Mr. Cockpit Cockypants is the only way to get her raise.

When work forces them together, it seems like the beginning of a new Cold War, or maybe Clint’s high-flying charm is just what Erin needs to see there’s more to life than just work. Aviva Vaughn’s seventh full-length novel, Love on the Ropes is a full-length standalone and book one in the Love in Action series, a spin-off of the BECKONED series.


Love on the Slopes (Book 2 in the Love in Action Series)


He left Hawaiʻi to find himself. But instead he found her…LoveOnTheSlopes_Ebook

There are three things you should know about Patrick Hung:

1 – At 32, he’s a former World Champion of surfing who wants to win one more title before he retires

2 – He’s a twin who hasn’t spoken to his sister in months

3 – He wouldn’t know what love looked like if it hit him in the face

Of course, it’s pretty hard to win a surf title if you aren’t anywhere near an ocean. Soul-crushing grief has made Patrick “head for the hills”, although mountains are more accurate. He’s licking his wounds in a small ski resort in California, teaching skiing during the day and drinking at night. Life’s good. (yeah right!)

There are three things you should know about Stella Walker:

1 – She works the overnight shift snow grooming, which has given her a healthy disdain for ski and snowboard instructors

2 – No one knows she’s in California

3 – She wouldn’t know what love looked like if it hit her in the face

When Patrick Hung comes into her life, she doubles down on hating snowboard instructors. The man is cocky, loud, and has women throwing themselves at him even though he smells like beer twenty-four-seven. But when he drunkenly confides to her why he’s really in Big Bear, she realizes they have a lot more in common than just their employer.

When their pasts catch up to them, will it leave them sitting in front of their fires solo, or will winter’s last storm bring the two of them Love On The Slopes?

Aviva Vaughn’s eight full-length novel, Love on the Slopes is a full-length standalone and book two in the Love in Action series, a spin-off of the BECKONED series.
