A Bid For Love
#1 in the Deal for Love Series

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 people together from opposite edges of the continent and allowing them, in their own way, to find an unexpected connection. In the end, their very lives depend on the trust they've developed. If you love romance and excitement, you'll be captivated by A Bid for Love.

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

I love this book as well! My mother got this book signed, and then she let me read it! I was so amazed at how good that book was organized and set up. I love how Cassi and the guy are fighting over a Buddha (sorry, I don't remember the guy's name.)
