Today is release day for Sold To The Highest Bidder! It's out in e-book starting today and in February it'll be out in print. I am more excited than I expected to be about this book hitting e-shelves. But I think it's a combination of things really - the fact that this was a story I started on a whim and for fun but that I fell in love with, for one. And then there's the great cover. The cover artist (Kanaxa) at Samhain did a great job capturing the western feel but also the other side of Devin McQuade. Sex-ay, I think!
There's an excerpt on my website and another on the Samhain site, and for now I'll just post the blurb - which I love:
For Ella, marrying Devin had seemed like a good idea at the time. Friends since childhood and in love with him for as long as she could remember, marriage had been the next logical step. Then the real world called, and Ella’s feet had itched to get out of Backwards Gulch, Colorado.
Now, with a new opportunity on the East Coast beckoning, it’s time to put her past behind her once and for all. When she sees Devin standing on a charity auction block, she decides it’s the perfect opportunity to finally get his signature on the divorce papers he never signed.
Devin’s certain about one thing when he sees Ella for the first time in twelve years—she’s not the girl he married. The way she left him still stings, and if she wants him to sign on the dotted line he’s going to make her work for it…for the full forty-eight hours she paid for.
When the old attraction flares between them, the years apart disappear and resolve melts faster than high-country snow in summer. But when Ella awakens with the same determination to get back to Denver, divorce papers in hand, she has a problem…
Devin still hasn’t signed them.
It's available today at MyBookstoreAndMore, ebook retailers, and also for Kindle.
