“Bachelor Auction” by Darah Lace is book two in the “Preston Brothers” series. This can be read as a standalone. This is the story of Marcus Preston and Charlotte Reese.
Marcus and Charlotte shared a night together last summer and he cannot forget her. Charlotte cannot forget him either, but she doesn’t believe in true love or relationships. Charlotte is more into one night stands. This is her way of protecting herself from getting hurt. Marcus wants more than a one night stand so he hasn’t perused her after that night.
Marcus and Charlotte are forced to spend a weekend together since she wins him in Houston’s Most Eligible Bachelor charity auction. Marcus wants Charlotte to know that she has more to offer than sex. Now the battle of wills is on. Will Charlotte seduce him in an attempt to get him out of system or will Marcus hold out for all of her?
At times you may want to shake Marcus and Charlotte but you will love how everything plays out. I loved the characters and the humor in the story. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/The Wild Rose Press for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.
