To the Highest Bidder by Kate Steele
Ben Searcy’s best friend and business partner presents him with a very unusual birthday gift. Becca has bid on and won an auction and she’s handing her winnings over to Ben. The highest bidder gets the privilege of sharing lunch with Mitch DeSantis, star of wildly popular television show, Case Files.
Though he’s a huge fan of the show and not above entertaining a steamy fantasy or two starring Mitch, Ben’s not particularly thrilled with the idea. After all, how do you make conversation with someone you see on television every week? As it turns out, he needn’t have worried. While Mitch is as gorgeous in person as he is on screen, he’s also rude, arrogant, and a complete ass. Ben leaves before the main course is served, hoping never to see Mitch DeSantis again.
Fate has other plans. A completely changed and contrite Mitch shows up with an apology, a heart-stopping smile, and an invitation to dinner. It’s a combo Ben finds hard to resist. This new Mitch is someone Ben could lose his heart to, but it’s a one-time thing, right? No danger of that happening.
If he’d only known. Mitch has an ulterior motive that could lead to something neither one of them expected.
