Bid on a date with this wounded warrior for an unforgettable night of adventure. Aim high—and bid higher!—because no one comes close to local hero Gabriel Morales.
Molly Dekker hates being the town charity case, but when her son Josh is seriously injured she has no choice. She lets her best friend organize a bachelor auction to help pay her massive bills and make Josh’s life more comfortable. She can’t bid on any of the men, but a surprise bidder gives her a gift she never expected: a date with the man who saved her son’s life—the only one she’s in danger of losing her heart to.
Former Air Force pararescueman Gabriel Morales made a career of flying to the rescue, until a tragic helicopter crash stole more than his livelihood. Being auctioned off like a slab of beef isn’t in his recovery plan. But one look, one touch and one night unlocking Molly’s pent-up passion make him realize how badly he needs to be rescued…and how badly he wants to rescue Molly right back.
Will Molly and Gabriel’s never-quit attitude have them rushing head-first into love? Or will Gabriel’s secret pain stall their relationship before it can get off the ground?
A wonderful story full of emotion and characters you will love.

In a strange turn of events, Gabriel is bought by Josh for his mom with his entire savings of $27.32. He doesn’t like seeing his mom sad. He wants her to go out and have some fun.
One night of passion doesn’t go as planned. How will Molly be able to get Gabriel to trust her again? Will Gabriel ever be able to move past what is holding him back or will this story remain, just one night with the bachelor?
This was my favorite book of the bachelor series and it’s one that you don’t want to miss if you have read any of the other books.
