Spotlight on Barefoot Bay
I was one of many disappointed fans who mourned when Roxanne St. Claire announced she would be moving her writing focus from sizzling romantic suspense to emotional contemporary stories. After three full-length books and three novellas set on St. Claire's fictional barrier island off the west coast of Florida, I'm disappointed no more. Instead, I've delightfully devoured each of the Barefoot Bay stories and eagerly anticipate each new offering from one of the most talented authors around. And, for those of you who enjoy that St. Claire sizzle, not to worry. There's plenty of that to enjoy in these new, heartwarming stories as well.
Bridging the gap between her full-length trilogies, St. Claire has brought three sexy billionaire heroes to Barefoot Bay, telling their stories in novellas (125-145 pages) that will have readers begging for more of the same. At least, it has this reader begging for more! :)
SEDUCTION ON THE SAND brings us the story of billionaire real estate mogul Elliott Becker and Barefoot Bay goat farmer Frankie Cardinale. When Frankie inherits her grandfather's goat farm on Barefoot Bay, she leaves her high powered job and takes up residence on the secluded piece of land where she spent the happiest days of her childhood. Everything comes easy to charming Elliott Becker and he has no reason to expect anything different when he shows up on Barefoot Bay to buy a goat farm that's sitting on land he and his partners need for their proposed baseball stadium. He'll have Frank Cardinale handing over his land in short order. Except Frank turns out to be Frankie, a sexy Italian spitfire who fires up Elliott in more ways than one. Elliott has finally met his match but, whoa mama, is she going to make him work for his happy ending - an ending he didn't even know he wanted...or needed.
All three Barefoot Bay Billionaires novellas are available individually in e-book format and now available in a print boxed set. The first story, SECRETS ON THE SAND, is currently FREE for download to your Kindle.
Readers, do you enjoy novellas? Have you read any good ones lately? Have you read Roxanne St. Claire's books yet? Have any favorites?
Because I enjoyed these stories so much, I'm giving a Kindle format set of the three novellas to one person leaving a comment on today's post.
