Overview

Dumped at the altar and left without a home, Rosie Xalbadora takes a job as a governess at the edge of the Australian outback. There she meets Pippa Bristow, a sensitive child who copes with her parent's bitter divorce by escaping into a magical world of fairy queens and unicorns. Pippa's enigmatic father, Adam Bristow, will endure whatever it takes to shield his daughter from his selfish, oil heiress ex-wife.
.
Struggling to shield Pippa from her mother's games, Rosie must face her own painful past while fighting a growing attraction to her handsome, emotionally unavailable employer. But help comes in the form of a quirky neighbor, a friendly Outback town, and two ghost riders who visit Rosie each night in her dreams. When Rosie and Pippa save a small, white pony from slaughter, their ill-timed compassion puts Adam's custody dispute, Pippa's fantasies, and Rosie's worst fears all up for bid in an epic showdown.
.
The Auction Trilogy is a contemporary romantic family saga styled with the heart-wrenching, Gothic undertones of 'Jane Eyre' and just a hint of the supernatural.

"This modern day rendition [of Jane Eyre] ... is spot on with the Bronte storyline, but with a refreshingly modern twist. You'll want to cry with the heroine as she struggles to protect the little girl from her crazy and manipulative mother, and you'll cheer for Adam & Rosie as they take baby steps toward trusting one another and believing in true love..." --Dark Lilith Book Blogs
.

.
"The book induces a roller-coaster of emotions in the reader ranging from unadulterated mirth one moment to such deep grief and sadness the next. The description of Australian outback, the auction and the scenes are so vivid that they took me down memory lane to the trip I took to that country..." --Reader review
.
"The story of Adam Bristow, his daughter Pippa, and incoming tutor Rosie Xalbadora invokes shadows of Jane Eyre, with Erishkigal's flair for complex story line and a rich supporting structure of subplot ... "The Auction" is satisfying, inspiring, heart-rending, and epic...." --author Dale Amidei, Jon's Trilogy

About the Author

Award-winning author Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction as a pleasurable alternative to coming home from court and cross-examining her children. She writes under a pen-name so her colleagues do not question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.'
.
Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters, the kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge.
.
At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off…
