Teaser Tuesdays: Sold To The Highest Bidder by Donna Alward

“You could have had me for free.”

She planted her hands on his shoulders and pushed, skittering away on her heels. “I…I was sent on a story. It had nothing to do with you, you egomaniac.”

Sold To the Highest Bidder by Donna Alward (Free Kindle Edition)

Ella comes back to Colorado to put her past behind. He goal is to get Devin to sign those Divorce papers. They have been married for the past 12 years as teenagers, and she had left him soon after to live her dreams. Every year she sent him the papers to sign and he refused to do that.

Now she is determined to get it done personally. So she lands up in Colorado and finds him standing in an auction block for charity. And ends up bidding for him. She is the highest bidder. She thinks that he will sign those papers in those 48 hours that she owns him! But he is determined that she has to work for that. At the end of it, she leaves happily enough..with one glitch! She finds too late that he still hadn't signed at the dotted line. 

She doesn't understand why he refuses to do so. On the face value, it seemed like any other romance with lots of arguments but it does take an unexpected turn and made the novel worthwhile. Two childhood sweethearts, who married so young, it was inevitable that one walks out soon after. One tries to move on, the other is stuck in time. But is it what appears? Ella seems to have moved on, Devin stuck in time. But it is nothing like this. I liked the way author kept us hooked. By the twists and turns. It made a one good read for a lazy Sunday. I quite enjoyed. And available for free, it is well worth it. Click on the title/cover to get the free Kindle Edition.
