Going Once…Twice…Sold!


Congratulations to "JoJo", the winner in Naima's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

As you may have already guessed, my Bachelor Auction series with Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence line revolves around a—yep!—bachelor auction. A masquerade bachelor auction, to be exact. Is this just a wee bit sexist? Possible. A shameless exhibition of prime eye candy—millionaire man candy? Most likely. But is it fun and sex-aay? Indubitably. In my bachelor auction, the successful, wealthy businessmen of Boston, Massachusetts are up for grabs. Ten yummy men who offer luxury dates and their delicious company. Now as someone who is tight with a penny—in my wallet George Washington screams for mercy—it has to be a pretty special bachelor to make me dole out the dollar bills. But I do have a master bachelor list…and in my book AKA fantasies, they’re all bachelors. :)

Vin Diesel – That voice. Oh Lawd, that voice. Like midnight sin. And then add the smooth head, the swag, and that body! Diesel is definitely the right name for him. For my date with him, I would have him lay out on my bed and recite the dictionary. Just. Don’t. Stop. Talking. 

Tyrese – When I look at this tall drink of water, all I think of is Eddie Murphy in Coming to America yelling, “Sexy chocolate!” LOL! Again, another bald-head guy makes the list. Noticing a pattern? :)  Not only is he gorgeous and cut, but that smile. *shiver* It just promises all kinds of naughty, naughty things you hope he can deliver on. And the man sings. Yaaahhhsss!

Henry Cavill – Superman is just…super. The hair. The eyes. The adorable cleft chin. And I wouldn’t kick him out of my bed with that chest and abs. He’s one of those men who are what we call bea-u-ti-ful. He makes me squee like a teenage girl over her favorite boy band. And hullooo? The accent! 

Jason Momoa – I’m not going to lie. It’s the eyebrows. The intriguing arches and the scar that runs through the left one? Sigh. They give him this decidedly wicked air that makes you think committing a few sins would soooo be worth the time on my knees…asking for forgiveness, that is. Hee-hee! Then let’s throw in the exotic features, thick hair, hard, wide chest and tree-trunk thighs. I’ve watched Conan the Barbarian about five times, and it isn’t because of the plot…

Idris Elba – Debonair. Smooth. Cool. Tall. I can definitely see why his name was thrown in the 007 discussion. He exuuuuudes (yes, he deserves that many u’s) sophistication and rocks the don’t-make-me-eff-up-my-suit-by-making-you-bleed thing. He’s sexy, seems a little reserved. But it’s the reserved ones that have you panting to find out what seethes underneath. And again…the accent!

Honorable Mention: Dr. Phil – I know I’m going to catch some lip over this one. But Dr. Phil is sexy! Just ask Robin. He is the perfect example of intellect, honesty—and sarcasm—being hot. Plus, he still retains that tall, broad football player’s build…

Giveaway:
So there’s my line-up! Did I miss someone? Who would you get into a bidding war with me over? Tell me who makes your bachelor auction line-up! One bidder, I mean, commentor will win a $10.00 Amazon gift card from me!

THE MILLIONAIRE MAKEOVER


He promised to stay away…but some promises are made to be broken


Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the prince of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he'll finally see her as a desirable swan and not the ugly duckling in the second office from the left.

But when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, the man she wins is millionaire Niall Hunter—who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. She's determined not to let her guard down again—among other things—around the infamous Irish lothario.

Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend’s little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture...especially when he promised his friend he’d stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he's not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can't stop wanting her. Can't stop touching her. Can't stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to...

    1. Oh Ada, I'm soooo with you on those two picks! I luvs me some Captain America and Arrow! Especially Stephen Amell. I love how Oliver Queen can go from charming millionaire to stone-faced vigilante on a dime. *shiver* So, I totally am on board with the super hero theme. LOL!! I have my bidding paddle ready!

  2. My bachelor auction lineup would include Alex O'Laughlin (the accent!!), Chris Hemsworth (duh, Thor!), Shemar Moore (just plain yummy), David Beckham (athlete and model, it's a two-fer!) and Luke Bryan (he can sing to me all night). Hands down I'd fight anyone with bids on these hunks!! But not Dr. Phil for me, sorry!

    1. Why do I get the feeling I would easily win Dr. Phil...? LOLOL!! That's all right, Anita, that just means I would get him for a bargain. :-D I TOTALLY approve of your bachelor line-up. The accents...sigh. Did I mention my hero Niall Hunter is Irish and has an accent? See how I slipped that in? LOL! And Shemar Moore? Sigh. I have a confession to make. I stalk his FB page for pics and videos. There's a therapy group in my future, and it's his fault. LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. My line-up would be ... Gerard Butler (OMG, can't resist that smile or accent!) ... Tom Selleck (he might be gettin' old, but mmm-mmm, he's still got it!) ... Taylor Kinney (again, the smile - dimples! *swoon*) ... and I'd have to think of a few more. :)

    Loved this book! <3

    1. No, no, no, Lynn. Gerard Butler in a loin cloth and cape! Aaand that smile and accent! LOL! Whew. I just had a heat flash that had nothing to do with menopause. :-D And hecks yeah on Tom Selleck! Can I confess something? I did not get the big deal about Tom Selleck when he was Magnum P.I. Maybe because my mom really liked him, and just on principle I couldn't leer over the same man as her? I don't know... But now? Shoooot! I watch Blue Bloods for him just as much as Donnie Wahlberg! The man is like fine wine! And yeeeessss! Taylor. the smile, dimples, and eyes! Sigh. So pretty. Great picks! I would definitely get into a bidding war with you over them!

  4. I like your list very much but I would have to add Mark Harmon who has been a favorite of mine for years and he just keeps getting better. I would also add Chris Hemsworth - the abs and the accent. Shemar Moore who is the main reason why I watch Criminal Minds - he, too, has just gotten better with age. jmvarner50@hotmail.com

      I thought it was only me who watched Criminal Minds just to stare at him! LOL! Don't get me wrong, I love the show. But Shemar *Squiggy fist bite* The man is gaw-geous. Man candy squared. And I get Mark Harmon. He's so distinguished. And Chris. That goes without saying. I'm sooooo horning in on your bachelor auction. :-D

  6. I fear I'm going out on a limb here, but not knowing most of the people on your list, I actually DO think Dr. Phil is sexy. He has a lovely drawl, he's intelligent, and I think he knows that a happy wife is a happy life.
    Maureen has my email address.

    1. HAAAAAAAAAH!!! Yes!! Laney, you have given me validation! Hold up. I'm marching around the room with my fist in the air. LOL!! You just nailed (no pun intended! hee-hee!) why Dr. Phil is sexy to me. I love his Texas drawl, he's wicked smart, sarcastic (I'm a sucker for sarcasm), and yes! Doesn't Robin look like the happiest woman in this world? LOL! I'm playing "We are the Champions" in the background right now. *snicker*

  8. Henry Cavill is nice. So is Chris Evans. But there's Sebastian Stan. Give him shoulder length hair and the look. I'm a goner. Oh and Jon Bon Jovi with the grey hair. Oh and then there'e the model from your your hero bio from Beauty and the Bachelor.

  9. Kiiiiiim! Yep, I did yell that. Hee-hee! A whooping, obnoxious HELLS YES over Sebastian Stan! I loved him as Bucky and then Bucky/The Winter Soldier. He is sexy as all get out from the hair, the eyes and that cleft. Just yuuuum factor. Love him! And listen, Jon is gorgeous at any age. And he can saaang. Not sing, saaaang. LOL!! And don't get me started on Niall...sigh.
