The premise of this story actually came from a real event. While going out with family friends, I found out one couple was heading to South Africa in a few months. I asked how on earth they’d come up with that plan, and they said that they’d been at a charity auction and had bid on the trip in order to help drive the price up, but then they won! My story-wheels immediately began spinning, and I thought about how I could turn that idea into a romantic comedy. A Bid for Love was born!
