Charity Bradford, Corporate Vice President, balks at the idea of being auction off even if it is for charity. She informs Roger that she will not participate. It goes against every one of her principles and besides, it demeans women. Her list of reasons why she won’t do it is long. Her demands and pleas fall on deaf ears.
Rogers is determined to have Charity in his life, on her knees and in any other position he desires. He intends to bring out the submissive he knows she hides. He does not accept her refusal.
Charity is beside herself. Her heart tells her to do this. Her head tells her that it’s a blow against women and she must not allow herself to be auctioned off as one would auction a slave.
What follows will keep the reader on the edge of her/his seat and cyberly turning the pages to see what happens next. Charity, realizing she has no option, decides to take things into her own hands.
On the night of the auction Charity appears on stage dressed in a pork chop costume. The reaction from the crowd isn’t what she expects. When the auctioneer calls for a bid, Roger offers one million dollars. No one bids against him.
Reese Gabriel once again offers a story of mixed emotions. Charity’s head and heart are at odds on what’s proper and what she truly wants. Roger knows what he wants and makes no apologies for what he intends to have. What if he pushes her too hard? Will it backfire on him?
AUCTIONING CHARITY will have the reader cheering for both hero and heroine, often at the same time. I love the characters that Mr. Gabriel brings to life. He pours emotions into them that are real and no holds are barred. It’s almost as if he’s relating a true personal story the way he gets into his characters’ psyches.
Roger and Charity will certainly keep the reader entertained. There are elements of D/s in this story but it’s handled with genuine care and no harm is done.
