This isn’t just an auction; it’s a war, and she’s the grand prize.

Sweet, girl-next-door types like Wendy Hart don’t usually sell their innocence for cash.

She’s a rarity, and my arch-rival, Orson Bishop, will stop at nothing to claim her.

If she needs the money, Bishop can make her impossibly wealthy, but I’ve got sizeable assets… and an impressive bankroll, too.Bishop’s used to taking what he wants, even if it means stealing it.

But not this time. This isn’t a game — it’s personal — and I’m going to win.

I won’t let him destroy Wendy’s sweetness just to get under my skin. He just wants to use her and throw her away, but not me.I want more than one blissful night. I want to make her mine forever.

I’m not backing down from this fight.

I have read a couple of Virginia’s books and I got to say this one was not one of my favorites.  I liked it, but I didn’t like it.  You know those books where it is a good book but there is just that one thing that makes you go meh!  Well this book is that one for me.

In this book Wendy Hart is a sweet college girl who decides she wants to sell her virginity.  She signs up for a Virgin auction.  You pick your bidders and if you change your mind, then you can back out and forfeit the money at anytime.  Sounds simple enough right!  Wrong!   When Wendy gets caught between two rivals things get messy and confusing for her.  The stacks are high and she is not sure what to do.  The money or walk away.  And we are talking a lot of money.

The story to this book is a good story.  I enjoyed seeing how far the men go to win her bid.  I did not like the reason behind her selling her innocence.  I thought it was a dumb selfish reason.  That is the part that bothered me.  Not the story itself but just her reason.  It really threw me off the story a bit.

The characters in this book are definitely interesting enough to keep you locked in.  I could not put the book down for I had to know right away how all of this would pan out.  I can honestly say that Orson dude is one bad man.  I would never in a million years think about him.  Virginia’s description of him kind of creeped me out a bit.  Cash seemed to have an honest way about him and I felt as though there was more to his story.  I felt like a whole book can be written about his life before this.  It would be a great story.

All in all the book is a pretty good read and I enjoyed it.  I would recommend it to anyone who likes the romancing the virgin story.

Virginia has two writing companions, her cats, Pepper and Max, and enjoys sending pictures of them to her friends when she should be writing. Her hobbies include photography, salsa dancing, and cooking — especially if the recipe involves ham or she’s whipping up a batch of homemade marshmallows.

She loves strong, sexy men who smoke cigars, drink cognac, and know how to treat a lady… especially when she’s been naughty. Lighting a candle and burning some jasmine incense helps her get in the mood… for the next book.

Virginia writes the kind of stories she enjoys reading — steamy romances that always end with happily-ever-afters. She loves making an accomplished alpha fall hard for his perfect match, and thinks it’s delicious when he must work to win over her heart, while also making her knees go weak and leaving her breathless in all the right ways.
