I'm pleased to have my good friend and fellow author back with us today.
Being a multi-published author, some books are more special to me than others. Bidding Wars is one of those that holds a special place in my heart.
This story hit me like a ton of bricks and flowed from my finger tips to the keyboard in record speed—at least for me. This story is filled with passion. Not just between the characters, but from me.
You see, when I set out to write this story, I wanted to forget about sex. Sex is in all books and some heat us up more than others. I write both erotic and contemporary romance. I wanted to write a story that put all that aside and simply told a love story. Now, it isn’t complelty sex free. After all, I was writing about two adults. The door is only slightly cracked open. But you aren’t going to find all the nitty gritty details in this story.
I hope readers will find in Bidding Wars, two people coming together in a way unimaginable. After all, they both want to buy the same house. And yet, only one of them can have it.
Bidding Wars will be the first story in a new trilogy titled Love Strikes. It will follow three nurses from a pediatric 24-hour office. The second book has been contracted, and I suspect will release later this year. If you enjoy this style of writing from me, be on the lookout for It Must Be Fate.
Love Strikes, Book 1
By Lacey Wolfe
A sheriff plus a nurse plus a house equals trouble…
Nurse Molly Harper has had a tough year. But when she decides to regain control of her life, buying her dream house becomes her first priority. Finding the perfect house and falling in love with it—that’s the easy part. The hard part is getting rid of the obnoxious man who thinks he’s going to be the new owner. Even if he is gorgeous. And the sheriff…
Sheriff Luke Logan needs to buy a house. Getting out of the renting game will help in the custody battle for his son, so when the perfect place pops up right on his street, he can’t believe his luck. But there’s already an offer on the table, and the woman won’t back down. Too bad she doesn’t know that he always goes after what he wants, and he has no intention of letting her have “his” house. Even if she does make him feel that he might need more than just a house to make a home…
Luke stared at the papers in front of him. His real estate agent had faxed them over. Apparently, more than one person wanted the place on Maple Street, and he now needed to decide if he wanted to offer any higher.
He’d really liked the old house. It would be great for when his son came to visit every other weekend. But now he had to decide how badly he wanted the place. Of course, this could be some gimmick from the sellers. They knew what a gem they had there and probably wanted the most they could get. He had forty-eight hours to come up with his new offer, if he decided to. He already had a good offer on the house—but was it good enough? He rubbed his temples and brushed the papers to the side of his desk. If he didn’t get it, there were other homes.
Some sort of commotion was coming from the front of the station. It was always something. Sometimes he wished that one day at work could be slow and boring. Perhaps he should have chosen a different profession.
He went to see what was going on. At the front desk, he found a very familiar-looking brunette demanding to talk to someone. Women were never patient when they needed something.
“Ma’am, calm down. I’m Sheriff Logan. Can I help you?”
The woman looked him square in the eye. “You! You’re who I am looking for.”
He flinched beneath her bold, accusing stare. “Why don’t we go back to my office, and we’ll see what I can help you with.”
She followed him down the hall, her heels clicking loudly on the tiled floor. This woman was really uptight. He took a seat and pointed toward the chair in front of his desk, but she didn’t sit. She looked as though she was ready to burst.
“I won’t be here long enough to get comfortable.”
“Tell me what’s going on.”
“You’re trying to steal my house,” she snapped.
