Auctioned is the third book in the Billionaire Bodyguards series by Via Mari. I love when I see that Via Mari has released a new book because I know I am guaranteed a really great read. This is a fantastic romantic suspense that’s full of danger, sex trafficking, secrets, hidden agendas, action, mystery, a whole lot of sizzle, intrigue, and so much more.
This book could be read as a standalone, as each book in the series focuses on a different couple. But I recommend reading the previous two books before starting on this one, because they are really great stories in their own rights- as well as having recurring characters who you will want to know more about.
Via Mari is known for her superb romantic suspense stories and this book showcases her talents beautifully. She easily builds gripping suspense, intrigue, palpable tension, and sizzling chemistry- while balancing it all with lighter moments and believable emotion.
Damian has been hired to find the missing niece of Jenny Torzial, whom we first met in the ‘Prestian’ series as secondary character, and then in her own series ‘The Torzial Affair’. Bryanna has found herself in quite the predicament, caught up in a sex trafficking ring. Damian will stop at nothing to find her and return her safely. But Damian soon discovers that it’s not going to be a routine rescue assignment- and he might lose more than his heart in the process.
Another unputdownable read from this talented author!
Thank you, Via Mari!
