Back Cover...

After helping her grandfather at their Boston auction house, Miranda Wimplegate discovers she's accidentally sold a powerful family's prized portrait to an anonymous bidder. Desperate to appease the furious family, her grandfather tracks it to the Missouri Ozarks and makes an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house if they promise not to sell anything until he arrives.

Upon their arrival, however, they discover their new business doesn't deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its manager, ruggedly handsome Wyatt Ballentine, is frustrated to discover his fussy new bosses don't know a thing about the business he's single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more cattle than they can count--but no mysterious painting--Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and salvage a bad situation getting worse.

What I Loved...

A mixture of romance, intrigue, and humor, At Love's Bidding has all the ingredients for what I love in a novel.

I've grown accustomed to characters going out west and falling in love and settling. Without giving away spoilers, I was excited how Jennings, turned the ending up a notch.

What I Liked...

Character, Wyatt Ballentie, is my kind of hero! More times than I can count I wanted to smack some sense into character, Miranda. Logically I couldn't blame the character for her choices, but when a character makes you want to toss caution to the wind...I know that he is my kind of hero!

The secondary characters were delightfully written and provided most of te humor.


The cover is absolutely adorable! I love it.

While the novel did have the ingredients I found I liked the book but not loved it. It is still worth a read. I enjoy Regina Jennings books and this one is no different. The book is part of a series, but is a standalone book and you need not read the others in order to read this one. But for those who have the other books in the series, the previous characters make appearances...I personally love that.
