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 wouldnever 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 . . .

The Bachelor Auction #1


My Thoughts:  If you enjoy fairytales, then The Bachelor is something you will want to add to your TBR list for sure.  It's a Cinderalla type of story set in modern day, with a bit of a hot and spicy edge to it.  Jane, your modern day Cinderalla, has been tasked, or so she believes, with keeping her family together after the death of her father.  Her two sisters take her for granted, work her to death, and think of her more as a "Plain Jane," whose main purpose in life is to serve them.  Brock Wellington is the prince in the story, and though he comes from wealth, he to feels extreme guilt and responsibility to his grandfather, always sacrifiing his own happiness and desires to please him.  

Fate brings these two together via a broken shoe and though they never expect to run across each other again, they find themselves in a completely different situation, though this time, neither seems to happy about it.  Brock is the main event at the Bachelor Auction his grandfather is planning, an event he is not happy about having to particpate in.  When he and Jane find themselves forced together for several weeks, he finds he's extremely attracted to Jane, but his grandfather's plan doesn't allow for a fling with the hired help.  He attempts to stay away from her - and he is a bit of a jerk about it - being not very nice at all to her.  Enter at this point Brock's twin brothers, both of whom I just loved, and you have yourself a very fun, funny, and sexy story.  I'm looking forward to the twins stories as well.  The Bachelor Auction is a good read - check it out.
