Release day: Highest Bid

26 August 2019

Today is the official release of Highest Bid by Mel Teshco (ebook, Tule Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

An unapologetic player and a reserved wallflower … one night would never be enough

Galan Black carries a burden he can’t share with anyone, least of all his two brothers. Not even after the blood, sweat and tears it took for them to open and make the Black Pearl Nightclub a raging success. He’s just glad his secret doesn’t haunt him half as much in the arms of the eager women he takes to bed.

Yet he can’t stop thinking about the plain Jane bartender and waitress, who he impulsively hired against his better judgement. Then she steps half-naked onto the stage for the club’s once-yearly charity auction, and he can’t keep his bidding paddle down, or his eyes off her. He’ll have her for the night, and get her out of his system once and for all.

Layla doesn’t trust men, yet her infatuation with the eldest Black brother is getting beyond a joke. She needs to experience a night in his bedroom, and get over her silly fixation. But then one night becomes two, with the heat between them showing no signs of cooling. Until Layla’s trust is put to the ultimate test and dirty little secrets are exposed.

Mel dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Galan and Layla’s story came together when my editor suggested a few different story scenarios. One that stuck with me was brothers running/owning a nightclub. I also decided I wanted to incorporate an auction into the mix and Highest Bid was born. It’s a Cinderella-type story with tones of the Ugly Duckling. Having said that, my heroine is far from unattractive, she just likes to blend into the background and get on with her job without gaining attention. The trouble is she does it too well and the eldest brother seems to take no notice of her at all. Then the yearly auction swings around and Layla knows this might be her one chance to get noticed by Galan once and for all.

You can find out more about this book at Mel’s website or buy it from Tule.
