#ExcerptReveal The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken @RachVD @RSofRomance

by Rachel Van Dyken
Genres: Contemporary Romance

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 façade. 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. . .


Are you ready to Meet Brock Wellington?

“Bentley!” Brock barked and shook his head.

“What?” Bentley shrugged then smoothly walked over to Jane and pulled out a box of black high-heeled pumps in a size eight and a half. “Your foot, milady?”

Brock rolled his eyes. “Give it a rest, Bentley. She can put on her own damn shoes.”

Bentley completely ignored him. “I love a woman’s foot.” He grabbed Jane’s broken shoe and tossed it to the side while his hands danced along the arch of her foot. His fingertips danced along her skin. Seduction by foot rub? That was new.


“It’s sexy, the arch.” He leaned over her, his lips parting just enough to give her the impression he was thinking about kissing her. “The curve of a woman’s foot reminds me of her body…see? Sexy.” He slid the shoe on a very terrified looking Jane and stood. “Perfect fit.”

Jane’s mouth opened then closed as a rosy flush crept over her face. “Th-thank you.”

“I bought you my favorite brand.”

Her eyebrows arched. How did he know about Manolo Blahnik? “Oh.” And then she nodded and said loudly, “Ohhhh! That makes sense!”

Bentley’s eyes narrowed. “Me buying women’s shoes?”

“You wearing them,” she explained. “That’s great. I mean, good for you. I’m sorry I’m so awkward at things like this, but it’s good you’re…you know…” She bobbed her head and sputtered. “Out and…comfortable with it.”

“Out?” Bentley repeated. “I’m confused.”

“Of the closet,” she said slowly then saw the scowl on Bentley’s face. “Or maybe you just like to dress like a woman?” She straightened her shoulders and tried again. “In either case, congratulations on your choice to wear women’s clothing!”

Brock about died laughing as Bentley’s horrified expression went from stunned to genuine confusion.

“You heard her.” Brock held his laughter in check. “Congratulations, brother. I’ll take care of the press release: Bachelor Playboy Bentley Wellington and his private women’s shoe collection.”

Bentley let out a strangled laugh. “Yes, and while we’re at it why don’t we remind the press that the clock is ticking on that auction of yours? Hmm?”

“Auction?” Jane asked.

“Don’t.” Brock shook his head. “You don’t want to know.”

“But she probably already does.” Bentley pointed out. “Unless she doesn’t read the news…?”

They both stared at her, waiting for an answer.

“I, uh…” She ducked her head, blushing again. “I read books.”

“How pure.” Bentley smiled and sat down next to her. “And just so we’re clear.” He leaned in as though he was going to kiss her. “My bat only swings one way…and I can assure you, every time I get thrown a pitch, I hit it out of the park.”

“Fairytale Vacations – where it’s our job to make your dreams come true!”They promised me a vacation,
One I'd never forget. And I won't. Not ever.
Call it crazy.Call it a whirlwind romance.Call it whatever you want.
I certainly never expected to meet anyone, let alone fall for, actor Asher Charming, On my honeymoon,
The one I planned with someone else.
But sometimes fate, or fairy godmothers, step in, and things change.
For one week, I found love in a man I never saw coming.
I'm Ella and this is my story...

Review Banner

Charming is a sexy, fun, fantastic, and hilarious twisted retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella.  I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect when I glanced at the cover, but I can state with 100% confidence that this book is worth the read.  Miller writes such a fun story with a with characters you love to hate, characters so sweet your heart aches, and characters so hilarious their comments will stick with you for a looong time (there’s never a good time for certain things, right Katie?!).

Ella was dealt a total sh*t hand in life.  I was so proud of her when she stopped taking crap and stood up for herself.  It all started by deciding to be true to herself which ultimately led her to Cabo and Asher. I was even more proud of her when she made the decision to go with the flow (a.k.a. Asher).  She seemed so alone and lost for such a long time (aside from the awesomeness known as Katie) that I was relieved to see such a quality man stride right into her life.

Close up profile of a couple having sex on a bed at home in the night

Asher is quite the opposite of what you would expect of a movie star.  His feet are so firmly planted on the ground and his heart is so wide open.  What I really love about him is the genuineness of intentions and how respect is evident in all of his actions.  Add in the physical qualities and you’ll quickly add him to your core group of book boyfriends.  (I want to tell you so much more about him, but don’t want to spoil the sweetness for you!).

There are some great moments of humor, truly steamy sexy times, and sweet romance.  The writing flows really well, the characters feel well-developed, and plot development doesn’t leave you scratching your head.  When you’re looking for a fast-paced, entertaining read, you really can’t ask for much more.  Enjoy the new 2016 version of Cinderella as Ella takes Cabo San Lucas and Asher Charming by storm!

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, the chase continues…

Zelda Wilder is on the run, this time from the ruthless assassins who’ve decided she knows too much to live.

“Playboy Prince” MacCallum Lockwood Tate isn’t about to let the beautiful player who stole his heart get away—if only he could decide whether he wanted to save her or strangle her for her dangerous games.

After tracking her down to a casino in St. Croix, Cal follows Zee back to Tortola where he intends to keep her safe. One problem: Zelda’s criminal liaisons are one step ahead of her.

Lives are threatened, and all of the players' skills are tested in this plot to capture a killer and save a princess.

Cinderella meets Ocean's Eleven in this ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE DUET featuring secrets, lies, royal high jinks, scams and double-crosses; breathless, swooning lust, cocky princes, dominant alpha future-kings, and crafty courtiers, who are not always what they seem.

Across the ocean to the beautiful beaches of Tortola to remote islands—A Player for a Princess takes the reader across a myriad of beautiful, scary, and amazing places—both physically and emotionally.

I absolutely adore this series and especially this book! It’s filled with emotions—from laughter, to misery, from love to heartache. Tia Louise’s beautiful writing draws you in from page one, or book one, and it won’t let you go. I couldn’t wait, after finishing book one, to get my greedy hands on this one, and I devoured it in one sitting.

Zelda Wilder and MacCallum Lockwood Tate’s story takes us on a wild and emotional journey. And without giving any spoilers, it’s a journey worth experiencing. Zelda goes through some very tough times, while MacCallum is trying desperately to save the love of his life. Uncovering conspiracies with friends turning foes and foes turning friends. Will MacCallum be able to rescue their happily ever after? Or will he be too late and lose everything?

From one page to the next, you never know what you will get. The book definitely keeps you on your toes. And the minute you figure out the title, I PROMISE YOU, you’re gonna absolutely ADORE Callum and Zelda.

This combinations of impeccable writing, complex characters with a depth to them I rarely see, and a storyline that’s so unbelievably believable in its twistedness made this for one of the best books I have read this year. It made me laugh, cry, and pray for the well-being of my beloved characters. I’m definitely a new, and huge fan of Tia Louise after this series. And I cannot recommend this enough!

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

From the
New York Times
bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
Money or love? Which would you choose?
You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.
For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.
I needed to go far away to think it through.
As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.
Then, he left.
I thought I'd never see him again.
But fate had other plans.
Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.
The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.
Carter was dangerous and always on the move.
Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.
He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.
A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.
I didn't know what to believe.
But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.
At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Review Banner

This book is by far my FAVORITE collaboration by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward.  What I expected when I saw the cover was a cocky playboy who would charm his way into Kendall’s panties.  What did the book deliver? Oh, you definitely get the cocky, panty charmer, but that was just the pretty wrapping paper to the amazingness that is Carter.  It’s a whirlwind tale of letting go in order to find what  you truly want.  While it may come in different forms for Carter and Kendall, the idea is the same: you can’t move forward with letting go of the past.

I MUST wax poetic about Carter right now.  I absolutely love the way he was written.  This guy and the depth of his character blew me awplayboy-pilot-teeaser-for-releaseay.  He was one amazing surprise after another.  His sweet and tender side were a perfect balance to that beautifully raunchy mouth.  I guess that’s why you can’t be upset by some of the mildly obscene things that come out of his mouth; they’re delivered with such charm that you find it completely acceptable. Vi and Penelope made him such a paradox, and it was an absolute joy to peel back all of his layers.

Kendall is a bit of a lost soul.  Her backstory was completely original, and not something I would have guessed.  I was so happy to see her development and growth (READ: she put on her big girl panties).  Even though I liked watching her become more of who she should be, I felt more of a pull to Carter.  However, I appreciated who Carter is and how he made Kendall become a better version of herself.

I can’t say enough about the writing of these two authors.  You can never tell it was a collaboration, except for the fact that they bring out the awesomeness in each other.  Their story lines are always fresh, the writing flows well, and their characters are captivating.  Playboy Pilot was no exception.  Even if you get angry or frustrated with the characters, they are written in a way to evoke those exact emotions (cough, cough, Kendall’s mother, cough, cough).

Needless to say, I remain a die-hard fan of Penelope and Vi, separately and as co-authors.  I will jump at every chance to read their words because it will always be worth it!

He’s Paxton Wilder.

Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.
But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.


Wilder by Rebecca YarrosWilder (The Renegades, #1)
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Rebecca Yarros kick starts her new Renegades series by introducing us to Paxton Wilder. This adrenaline junkie will make your heart race and his antics will make your palms sweat. Seriously, this boy is afraid of nothing in the stunts world. In fact, Paxton and his group of Renegades might just be certifiable.

The story line has a unique premise. Leah Baxter is hired to tutor Paxton during a Semester at Sea. There’s a lot going on in this scenario; a movie in the making, stunts to be attempted, hearts to be broken, etc. The reasons why may not be fully disclosed to Leah upfront either. Nevertheless, she’s along for the ride but Pax definitely presents a challenge. And poor Leah gets dragged into the action from the moment she decides to stay.

The story line progresses at a good rate and Leah gets pulled into the life of the Renegades and earns a cute nickname (Firecracker) in no time. There are a few conflicts introduced into the story that really up the mystery aspect. Just who is messing with the Renegades equipment? What tragedy has Leah experienced? What is Pax’s secret and why will it matter to Leah?

While these questions are rolling around your head, we do get to witness have some fun and sexy times as the chemistry and tension between Leah and Paxton builds. The story unfolds from both of their perspectives so the lust & joy, fear & doubt is fully covered. There is a big moment that made my jaw drop and my heart ache. These two connect, but there is something that may ruin any chance they may have together.

It was very easy to root for Leah and stand in Pax’s corner. Wilder is a fun read that will make you feel like you’ve explored the Mediterranean (via the cruise ship), that you’ve jumped out of a airplane, or even attempted a base jump . I actually felt my stomach drop a few times (my fear of heights is unrelenting). 4.5 Stars and once again, Wilder is a great start to this new series and a read I am happy to recommend.

No Trespassing

Being the daughter of world-renowned archaeologists, it’s in Emmy’s blood to want entry into the many off-limits historical places around the United States. Having graduated with her degrees in history and archaeology, you’d think she could just waltz right in wherever she wanted, right?


Dean Savageman, host of The Adventure Channel’s No Trespassing, is the rock star of documentaries, and is always called first to explore the most forgotten, dangerous, and inaccessible places around the country. No one gets dibs before him—certainly not the huffy wanna-be archeologist who keeps showing up at the most obscure undocumented locations, no matter how beautiful she is.

After years of run-ins—and unwanted fantasies—with her self-proclaimed mortal enemy and having given up on gaining entry to one of her dream sites the legal way, Emmy sneaks into the NOLA Catacombs, having no idea Dean is in their depths.

What happens when these two get trapped together, alone, twenty-five feet under the streets of New Orleans is one for the history books, or at least an episode of… No Trespassing.

She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.

Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair's heartracing romance continues in this hot, new novella in the Chasing Fire series.

Return to the dangerous and seductive romance that got pulses racing in the Chasing Fire trilogy...

It took ten years for Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair to find their happily ever after, and they’re not about to let anything get in their way... 

Nothing could stop the passion between Allie and Hudson—not time or distance. Not even tragedy, betrayal, and blackmail. But now they’re facing a new challenge: wedding planning. And while Allie’s social status demands she put on the event of the century, her well-intentioned family and friends have her doubting her walk down the aisle...

Hudson knows tensions are pushing Allie to the brink, but he’s not letting her throw everything away over some flowers and cake. He has plans for his new bride, and unlike their last adventure, he's determined that this time there will be no unwelcome surprises. But for all his determination and control, there’s one element Hudson Chase has never been able to predict—and she has some adventurous ideas of her own...

Embrace Me (Chasing Fire, #3.5)Embrace Me by Ann Marie Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can hardly believe it’s been almost a year since the final novel in the Chasing Fire series was released. The release of Embrace Me came as a complete surprise to me, a very welcome one at that. Hudson And Allie are one of my favorite literary romance couples and any additional time with them is a bonus. If Reclaim Me was about resolution, Embrace Me is all about recovery and renewal and Hudson & Allie’s second chance and second wedding celebrations.

This novella is low on drama and high on sensuality. This story line after all is focused on Allie and Hudson sharing their vows with their family and friends, and escaping their hectic lives for a honeymoon. So much of the story is about them preparing for the event and their internal musings about finding their happy and how they inspire each other. We get to see a bit more with Nick and Harper ( I adore these two *Nick* and would love more of their *Nick* story.) I think I just love how far Nick has come and how he and Hudson have bonded.

Ann and Amy also share with us some extra special (heartfelt & sexy) moments between Hudson and Allie while they are on their honeymoon. The man knows how to create a sanctuary for Allie, kicking off their lives in wedded bliss in a spectacular way. I felt very content and satisfied as I read the final lines. Ann and Amy created a wonderful world in the Chasing Fire series and Embrace Me is a delightful addition and worthy of 5 Stars! Don’t miss this book if you’ve already read the series – One final plug ~ This is a second chance romance /suspense series that I can’t recommend enough! ~

Hudson spun to face her and within seconds Allie was in his arms, the hard planes of his body crushing her against the alley’s brick wall. Both hands framed her face as Hudson sealed his mouth over hers. His tongue pushed passed her lips, taking her in a lush, deep kiss she felt echo to her very core. Allie’s hands found their way into his hair, her fingers twisting through the dark waves, trying in vain to hold him to her when he broke their kiss.

His face hovered mere inches from hers. “You’ve been a bad girl tonight,” he rasped.

Just those few, roughly spoken words had her heart racing with excitement. Hudson was in control and she wouldn’t have it any other way. In the boardroom she stood her ground, going toe to toe with her stubborn husband on a wide range of issues. But in the bedroom he was her dominant lover and although there was a time she would have never considered such behavior a turn on, there was no denying the effect it had on her. There was a freedom in surrendering herself to him, a liberating sense of self unlike anything she’d ever experienced. With Hudson she was able to let go of her inhibitions and explore the wanton lust only he could evoke.

embrace-me-4A soft moan escaped her lips as he ran his tongue up the column of her throat.

She hadn’t expected him to show up at her bachelorette party and had certainly never imagined him dragging her out of the club cave-man style. But there he was, touching her, kissing her, and all she could think about was how badly she wanted him.

“Did you enjoy having those men rubbing themselves all over you?” The hard ridge of his erection pressed against her though the soft fabric of her skirt. Behind them a muffled bass beat a hypnotic rhythm through the club’s darkened windows. It pounded through them, urging her to grind her body against him.

“It’s only you Hudson. It’s always been only you.”

“You can prove it to me when we get home.” He stepped back, leaving her warm and wanting, to reveal their limo idling behind him. He reached for the handle and gave the door a hard yank. “After you.”

Allie slid across the leather bench with Hudson close behind. Before he had even settled onto the seat she was in his lap. “We don’t have to wait until we get home.”

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

A troubled young journalist finds her loyalties tested when love and desire unearth dark secrets from the past.
Spring, 2010. When Luna Ward, a science journalist from New York, travels halfway across the world to work undercover at an alternative health clinic in Cadiz, her ordered life is thrown into turmoil.
The doctor she is to investigate, the controversial Rodrigo Rueda de Calderon, is not what she expected. With his wild gypsy looks and devilish sense of humour, he is intent upon drawing her to him. But how can she surrender to a passion that threatens all reason; and how could he ever learn to trust her when he discovers her true identity? Then Luna finds that Ruy is carrying a corrosive secret of his own…
Luna’s native Spanish blood begins to fire in this land of exotic legends, flamboyant gypsies and seductive flamenco guitars, as dazzling Cadiz weaves its own magic on her heart. Can Luna and Ruy’s love survive their families’ legacy of feuding and tragedy, and rise like the phoenix from the ashes of the past?
Legacy is a story of truth, dreams and desire. But in a world of secrets you need to be careful what you wish for…

Legacy cover
This story has the very distinctive (READ: romantic) signature of Fielding’s writing.  I was immediately captivated by the passionate Ruy who was a paradox unto himself.  He is quite intense – a passionate Spaniard.  I need to dub him swoon-worthy.  He has the personality, the body, the brains, and a touch of Alpha (in the best way possible).  Ruy was by far my favorite of the story.
Luna Ward initially comes across as a bit cold and somewhat lost soul.  Professionally she has it together, but her head and heart are way behind everything else.  Going to Spain was a way to find out more about her life and herself.  Moreover, I believe she needed to be found by Ruy.  Hiding behind her ever-pragmatic persona, she almost misses out on seeing, experiencing, and reveling in the mystically beautiful aspects of life.  She lived in a world of black and white until Ruy brought on a tsunami of color.
I was surprised a few times in this book.  It took me a bit to become invested in the story; I found it was a slow start, but once things began to roll, I was enchanted by the setting, the twists and turbulence in the story, as well as the development of the characters.  There is a heavier and more dramatic tone to this story, but it is appropriate and done well.  The romance (physical, emotional, and mental) is wonderfully melded with the spirit of the writing.
The story resolves exactly as it should, and you’re left with a complete picture of who these characters where and how they will live & love on. Sounds like a worthwhile read to me.

About Hannah Fielding

Portrait of Hannah Fielding and photos of where she writes.

Hannah Fielding is an incurable romantic. The seeds for her writing career were sown in early childhood, spent in Egypt, when she came to an agreement with her governess Zula: for each fairy story Zula told, Hannah would invent and relate one of her own. Years later – following a degree in French literature, several years of travelling in Europe, falling in love with an Englishman, the arrival of two beautiful children and a career in property development – Hannah decided after so many years of yearning to write that the time was now. Today, she lives the dream: writing full time at her homes in Kent, England, and the South of France, where she dreams up romances overlooking breath-taking views of the Mediterranean.
Hannah is a multi-award-winning novelist, and to date she has published five novels: Burning Embers, ‘romance like Hollywood used to make’, set in Kenya; The Echoes of Love, ‘an epic love story that is beautifully told’ set in Italy; and the Andalusian Nights Trilogy – Indiscretion, Masquerade and Legacy – her fieriest novels yet, set in sunny, sultry Spain.
