THE BILLIONAIRE’S BRIDAL BID (3) by Emily McKay: Twelve years ago, Claire Caldiera ran home to Palo Verde to help her sister, leaving the love of her life and making sure Matt Ballard didn’t follow her and ruin his future. The self-described geek has become a millionaire businessman and only returns periodically to their hometown for family visits. When he shows up at a local bachelorettes auction, he bids on Claire and, before they know it, the misunderstandings of the past rear up to engulf the possibility of a future. It’s hard to warm up to Claire, a woman with a tough shell, but adorably sexy geek Matt is sweet and willing to do anything to get his woman.
