Miranda Wimplegate takes great pride in helping in her family’s prestigious auction house in Boston, where her knowledge of art and antiques makes her invaluable. However, she and her grandfather make a mistake and sell the wrong painting, enraging the influential LeBlanc family. Desperate to recover the heirloom, they trace it to an auction house in Pine Gap, Missouri – which is for sale for a ridiculously low price. The Wimplegates purchase the auction house, and Miranda and her grandfather travel to Pine Gap to recover the painting.
Auctioneer Wyatt Ballentine has always dreamed of owning the local sale barn, and he’s infuriated when it’s sold out from underneath him. Then the prissy Wimplegates show up, shocked and disgusted that the auction house they purchased sells livestock. However, there’s just something about that Miranda . . .
At Love’s Bidding is a fun and fresh take on the fish-out-of-water tale. Miranda’s adjustment to rustic Pine Gap is humorous, especially her attempts at poetic auction descriptions of the cattle! Wyatt is an appealing hero, struggling to find his identity, while Miranda struggles to find her voice. And as always, Regina Jennings has written a romance with both laughs and heart.
