The Bachelor Auction

The first book in an all-new contemporary romance series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken. 

Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a fa├žade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .

A modern day Cinderella meets her prince in this fun and witty tale of two complete opposites, a cock, and an ass named Sheldon.

Jane was sure that her one meeting with the handsome stranger that saved her from an embarrassing dance floor incident would be just that, one meeting and one meeting only. So when a mysterious older, little bit crazy, gentleman hires her cleaning service and needs her to be a live-in maid at his ranch the last thing she expected was to meet her stranger there. And she definitely wasn't expecting her Prince Charming to turn into an evil toad.

Brock Wellington wants nothing to do with his families ranch and hates stepping foot inside the house that holds too many memories. But when his grandfather requests that Brock be auctioned off as a billionaire bachelor, and that the bidder would potentially become his wife, it's the one place he could escape to to think. The last thing he expected was to run into his mystery girl from the dance, and he doesn't want her there bringing up even more memories that he want's to keep buried.

New Adult, Contemporary, Suspense...I don't care what kind of romance it is, Rachel Van Dyken can write it. I've read multiple books by her and I have loved every single one. Her writing style and unique way of always adding some humor in subtle ways draws me in every time, and I don't think I'll ever get enough. This story was no different from her usual style and I really enjoyed reading it. 

The characters were great to get to know and I liked that they were easy to relate to and connect with. Not that their situation was one I think anyone has ever been in before, but the writing made it easy to read about Jane and Brock as if you were being told a story about your best friends. I think that's why I liked them so much and wanted more of them. Even in the beginning when I had my doubts about Jane's personality and if I could like her, it was still fun to read about her life. 

Bottom line, if you're a fan of this author, or genre, or just like the cover, read this book. It's funny and real, and there's a hot billionaire in it so really only insane people should be the ones not wanting to read this. 

Rachel Van Dyken is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of New Adult, Regency, and contemporary romances. When she's not writing you can find her drinking coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor. She keeps her home in Idaho with her husband, son, and their snoring boxer, Sir Winston Churchill. She loves to hear from readers!
