Billionaire Lucas Oliver is hell-bent on revenge. And his plan begins when Sydney Blake—the stunning daughter of his enemy—is tricked into bidding on Lucas at a bachelor auction. Then he serves up a little blackmail…followed by a marriage proposal Sydney has no choice but to accept.

Sydney has been controlled by her family her whole life. When Lucas threatens to reveal her father's shady business, she is once again forced to do her duty for her family. But worse—oh so much worse—is the rush of lust that Lucas ignites in her blood.

Lucas is determined to get his revenge, but it's tough when he can't keep from touching her—or thinking about touching her—all the time. She's not fairing much better since she's engaged to a darkly handsome beast intent on destroying her entire family…along with her heart.

Each book in the Bachelor Auction series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Revenge is never a good idea but sometimes, it can lead to unexpected feelings. Lucas and Sydney end up together by what seems to be a mistake, but it's just a part of a plan that doesn't include falling in love. I like the internal conflict that Lucas goes through and his chemistry with Sydney is g ...more

When Sydney casually made her bid for the bachelor at the auction, she expected the masked man to be her fiance Tyler. Never did she expect the ruggedly handsome stranger, Lucas Oliver. Really though, what could it possibly hurt to have one dinner with the man. A lot apparently!
