Overview

Cassi is the head buyer for a prestigious art gallery in California. Jared is a buyer for an exclusive New York gallery. Sparks fly as the two come head to head in a bidding war for a hideous but very expensive Indian Buddha from the Kushan period. Each is determined to win the statue, but others also want the Buddha--at any cost. Thugs, art forgers, the FBI, or Jared's beautiful and alluring boss . . . who will end up with the statue? During a string of hair-raising exploits, Cassi and Jared are forced to develop a tentative friendship that deepens into romance. Will they survive long enough to see it through?

Best-selling author Rachel Ann Nunes has crafted a wonderfully intriguing and romantic drama in this fast-moving novel, bringing two idealistic young people together from opposite edges of the continent and allowing them, in their own way, to find an unexpected connection to their faith and each other. In the end, their very lives depend on the trust they've developed. If you love romance and excitement that you're not embarassed to share with your daughter or your mother, you'll be captivated by A Bid for Love.

Note: A Bid for Love was formerly entitled Love to the Highest Bidder.

Meet the Author

Rachel Ann Nunes learned to read when she was four, beginning a lifetime fascination with the written word. She avidly devoured books then and still reads everything she can lay hands on, from children's stories to science articles. She began writing in the seventh grade and is now the author of thirty-six published books, including the popular Ariana series and the picture book Daughter of a King. Her most recent novels are Final Call (An Autumn Rain Novel), Tell Me No Lies, and Before I say Goodbye.

Rachel and her husband, TJ, are the parents of three boys and four girls. Rachel loves camping with her family, traveling and meeting new people, and, of course, writing. As a stay-at-home mother of seven, it isn't easy to find time to write, but she will trade washing dishes or weeding the garden for an hour at the computer any day! Her only rule about writing is to never eat chocolate at the computer. "Since I love chocolate and writing," she jokes, "my family might never see me again." Rachel writes Monday through Friday in a home office, often with a child on her lap. She takes frequent breaks from writing to build Lego towers, practice reading, or go swimming with the kids.

A Bid for Love 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 29 reviews.

I liked the story line and the fact there's no sex. The characters are believable, maybe a bit cautious and almostparanoid at times. Another reader commended that it was boring -- maybe because there's no sex that's why they felt this but it's refreshing to have a story stand on it's own without a bunch of hopping into bed to make a story! However, I liked it and it was an easy read.

Good read. I would recommend this book to anyone. It's a nice romance/mystery book. Has kissing but no sex scenes.

Those who don't like this book must have had their consciences numbed from all the smut books out there they've been reading. Excellent book, well planned plot, with just enough intrigue and romance to keep you entertained. I would definitely read another book by this author!

Loved it .  Kept your attention all the way through and kept you guessing as to who was the good guys and who was the bad guys. Can't wait to read the next chapter.

I will recommend this book to my reader friends; it kept me involved all day. I raced through dinner prep & left clean up for later to find out what happens next! Rarely will a book pull me in to that extent.
