Blurb: In order to conceive a baby Kat goes to a bachelor auction and buys back her ex-husband for a week.

Katherine Blake wants a baby. At thirty-three, she has a home and an antique business that she loves, but she is running out of time. Kat hasn’t had a man in her life that she would even consider fathering her child…except her ex-husband.

Michael Blake is for sale. In support of special-needs children, he offers himself up for one week as a prize at a New Year’s Eve local celebrity bachelor auction. The result? His ex-wife buys him to finish the restoration of the hundred-year-old home they bought shortly after their marriage. Or so he thinks. Katherine does expect the remodeling to be finished, but the rest of her plan is more devious. She doesn’t need him to rekindle the one-of-a-kind love that led to their fairy-tale wedding and he doesn't have to atone for the mistakes that led to their divorce, but he does have to...well, deliver.

Review: Sometimes, getting what you want isn't quite how you imagined.

For Kat, all she wants is something her ex husband can give her. So she takes it upon herself to go to extremes to get him in her sights again- but the feelings have changed when Michael's feelings are real. The couple has had a turbulent past, as they were married and they separated for many reasons.  Kat has alterior motives, but spending more time with Michael, she changes her plans too.

My favorite character in this story is Kat's grandpa, Homer. He cracks me up! He's a man in his mid eighties, but let me tell you, he doesn't stop for a single second. He lives life to it's fullest, even to the dismay of Kat, only because of the way he does things. 

Kat drives me a little nuts at times, but all in all, she just wants love, and a family. The tension between Kat and Michael in the beginning was intense, and througout the story, it changed. 

The Auction is full of emotion, laughter, and a great love story. Oh, and there's another character that finds, love, too. But I'm not telling. If you want to know, read The Auction, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Ms. Austin pens a great tale, and I'd love to see what more this author has to offer.
