Macy Piers is in debt again. Getting a second job isn’t going to cut it this time. Determined to pay off her credit card bills in one shot, she heads over to Velvet Nights, a nightclub that caters to Tieg clientele and holds date auctions. She signs herself up for auction, hoping that the cut she’d receive from the final bid would be enough to eliminate her debt. Being someone’s escort for a week would hurt her pride, but it would also serve as a lesson. While being prepped for the auction by the club’s owner, a big, rugged man walks into the room and the whole world stops. His hard-edged looks and the dark intensity of his eyes trap her while making her pulse race. Is he one of the bidders? Unsettled by her intense reaction to this stranger, Macy is relieved when she’s taken to the auction lounge, yet he’s already made an imprint in her mind.
