How to Start a Fire
Anna, Kate and Georgiana have been bosom buddies since their salad days at University of California at Santa Cruz: This novel follows the three adventurous women into middle age. Read about the author, Lisa Lutz

Book Description

Cassi is the head buyer for a prestigious art gallery in California. Jared is a buyer for an exclusive New York gallery. Sparks fly as the two come head to head in a bidding war for a hideous but very expensive Indian Buddha.

Cassi and Jared are both determined to win the statue, but others also want the Buddha—at any cost. Thugs, art forgers, the FBI, or Jared’s beautiful and alluring boss . . . who will end up with the statue? During a string of hair-raising exploits, Cassi and Jared are forced to develop a tentative friendship that deepens into romance. Will they survive long enough to see it through?

Best-selling author Rachel Ann Nunes has crafted a wonderfully intriguing and romantic drama in this fast-moving novel, bringing two idealistic people together from opposite edges of the continent and allowing them, in their own way, to find an unexpected connection to their Christian faith and each other. In the end, their very lives depend on the trust they’ve developed.

If you love romance and excitement, you’ll be captivated by A Bid for Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bid on this book May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great mystery - romance. Interesting plot with many twists and turns. Well written and kept your interest all the way through.
I love reading a romance book that I don't have to cringe from unwanted explicit sexual scenes.
I thank the author for writing such an entertaining book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Staying Up All Night For August 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit, up until a couple of days ago, I had never heard of Rachel Ann Nunes. A mutual friend informed me that Rachel's book, A Bid For Love, had been plagiarized. A book-blogger discovered the plagiary while reviewing an advanced reader copy of the The Auction Deal furnished by Sam Taylor Mullens. Recognizing the work as a plagiary the blogger bravely brought the matter to light before the stolen work was published. Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction so I had to read for myself what started all the drama. Am I glad I did. A Bid For Love is a great read. I despise plagiarists, but in this case, I would like to thank one. It is because of Sam Taylor Mullens that I have discovered a wonderful author. Rachel Ann Nunes has many books, and I look forward to reading them all.

This is the first of three books in a series by this accomplished author. Jared and Cassi are both established buyers for successful art galleries. When they meet at an art auction, the suspenseful story that ensues has numerous twists and turns and was hard to put down. This fast paced novel leaves you wanting for more so I immediately purchased and read the other two books in this series. Being available on Kindle is so great. I was able to read while waiting for grand-kids at the park and while waiting for doctor appointments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure and love story. . . December 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a fun, fast read with a bit of romance and suspense to keep you wanting more. It was a hard book to put down. The story ended great, yet leaving the reader ready to read the next book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series now and find out what happens next with Jared and Cassi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!! October 23, 2011

A Bid For Love by Rachel Ann Nunes is a great read. It is the first book in a three book series done by this author. It is LDS romance/suspense. The author develops a love story between two individuals in their late 20"s and early 30's. Both are success in their business lives, but not so much in the love department. As they get caught up in the world of smuggling they are the run from unknown bad guys and also falling for each other along the way. I would recommend this book and series.

1.0 out of 5 stars seemed like a beginning writing student's first book
I'm completely baffled by so many 5 star reviews. The plot is riddled with holes. SPOILER ALERT!! Jared always used a security company to send the art back to the gallery he works... Read more

More About the Author

Rachel Ann Nunes learned to read when she was four, beginning a lifetime fascination with the written word. She avidly devoured books then and still reads everything she can lay hands on, from children's stories to science articles. She began writing in the seventh grade and is now the author of nearly fifty published books, including the popular Autumn Rain series and the picture book Daughter of a King. Her most recent novel is Blinded (An Autumn Rain Novel) and Before I say Goodbye (Whitney Award winner).

Rachel and her husband, TJ, are the parents of three boys and four girls. Rachel loves camping with her family, traveling and meeting new people, and, of course, writing. As a stay-at-home mother of seven, it isn't easy to find time to write, but she will trade washing dishes or weeding the garden for an hour at the computer any day! Her only rule about writing is to never eat chocolate at the computer. "Since I love chocolate and writing," she jokes, "my family might never see me again." Rachel writes Monday through Friday in a home office, often with a child on her lap. She takes frequent breaks from writing to build Lego towers, practice reading, or go swimming with the kids.
