The Marriage Auction

(Season Two, Book Two)

by Audrey Carlan

This is the filthy, gritty, angsty soap opera you never knew you needed. Welcome to The Marriage Auction.

Meet the Bidders:

Rhodes Davenport: A billionaire single dad with a wounded heart and no desire to purchase a bride. The Madam of the auction has other ideas.

Naomi Shaw – A stylish, stunning, and shrewd businesswoman who owns a jewelry empire. In her experience, men have only been good at one thing, using her up. Since she no longer believes in true love, what’s the next best way to secure a man devoted to her and only her? Buy one.

Jack Larsen – A stoic and stern businessman who runs the largest brewing company in the world. As an orphan, his friends are the family he has chosen. All his life he’s wanted nothing but to find a woman who will stay and create a family with him. Since his best friend found the love of his life in the marriage auction, he believes he can too.

Giovanni Falco – An only child who lost his parents and their best friends in one fatal accident. He thought he could count on his fiancée to see him through, but she betrayed him with his best friend the night of their wedding rehearsal. When he receives a strange call from an old friend and a picture of his childhood crush in the marriage auction, he seizes an opportunity he can’t let slip through his fingers.
