Barefoot Bay Kindle World


Barefoot Bay Kindle World
Brought to you by Roxanne St. Claire




When a workaholic graphic designer and a handsome pastor meet at a funeral on the tropical island of Mimosa Key, an unexpected attraction surfaces.

But the timing isn’t right for either of them.   

Andrea (Andi) Morgan is working toward a promotion to art director of a lifestyle magazine in Minnesota when she is called to Florida for the funeral of her mother’s significant other. She takes a three-day funeral leave and is surprised to learn that her mother has dementia and can no longer live in the house alone.

Andi is torn between work and family, and is overwhelmed by the items on her to-do list that need to be done in three days.  

Matthew (Matt) Cooke, assistant pastor at Hope Presbyterian Church, is the bearer of bad news for both the funeral and her mother’s health condition. But he redeems himself with carefully chosen words and his comforting touch settles into all the right places as he helps Andi navigate the process of moving her mother into a memory care facility.

Andi extends her family leave for another week and the connection between them grows. She is also able to begin repairing the relationship with her mother, who she hasn’t seen in four years.

But behind his seemingly perfect exterior, Matt carries a secret that he waits too long to reveal to Andi for fear that she won’t want him. He looks for the right time, but something always comes up. She learns from the gossipy church secretary that he has a 10-year-old daughter. He never married the mother, who he’d known since high school, and he shares that it was the ultimate act of grace that the church membership installed him as assistant pastor even with his past.

Although she is shocked at the news, Andi is less upset about the fact that he has a daughter and more concerned that he didn’t trust her enough to share the information. And just when she thinks things couldn’t get worse, the art director promotion is given to someone else in her absence. To top it off, her mother doesn’t remember her when she goes to play bingo with her and all seems lost.

But Andi has a change of heart when she receives much-needed words of wisdom from the church secretary and sees Matt practicing softball with his daughter. She decides to stay in Mimosa Key, start her own freelance graphic design business and put family before her career.

What she saw as an interruption in her life a week ago has turned out to be so much more: a repaired relationship with her mother, a God-loving man and a little girl she could look forward to building a future with.




Blake “Dex” Dexter has been undercover so long, and so deep, that even he can’t separate the real Dex from his cover story anymore. A week in Barefoot Bay would sound like paradise to anyone else, but to Dex it sounds like way too much time to spend alone with his own thoughts, until he meets Amelia Barton, then he thinks it might not be enough time.
Amelia Barton had her whole life planned out like she plans a recipe for one of her decadent cakes, but somewhere along the she got seriously off track. When a cheating fiancĂ©e is exposed she decides to take her dream honeymoon alone. Barefoot Bay feels more like home to her than she’s ever felt in the rural Alaska. And then there’s the sexy cop who seems unsure whether he wants to pull her closer, or keep her at arm’s length.  Amelia knows which one she wants him to do.
When Dex’s cover is blown and the drug cartel follows him to Barefoot Bay, Amelia is suddenly a target. Dex is determined to keep her safe, but the only way he can see to do that is by keeping her away from him. Amelia has finally found the recipe for her sweet life, but can she convince Dex that their love is worth the risk?



Tracking down leads to his partner’s murder was all that mattered to Detective Noah Donavan, and finding Marco Talarico was his number one priority.  When his captain makes him take vacation or face suspension, Noah uses the time to do some sleuthing in Barefoot Bay, the location of his suspect.

Luciana Talarico has been dreaming of making a name for herself her entire life. When her new business idea finals in the Golden Ticket Contest, she can’t get out of New York fast enough--saying goodbye to her dead end job and her overbearing family.  Too bad her dead beat brother picks that moment to get into trouble—again!  If that weren’t enough, running head first into Noah is a distraction her heart wants but could ruin everything. 

Noah uses his connections in Barefoot Bay to go undercover.  Using Marco’s sister, Luciana isn’t the best idea he’s ever had but it’s the only one he’s got.  Too bad she’s everything he could hope for and more.  When the two meet the sparks fly, but with so much at risk for both of them, will they give in to their hearts?



Fans love PERFECT MATCH, the TV reality show taped at Barefoot Bay that guarantees soul mates a happy ever after.

Harper Ward, the brainiac girl geek developer of a high-tech matchmaking protocol that rocketed PERFECT MATCH to the top of TV reality show ratings, believes her technology is foolproof. After all, every couple matched so far is married, engaged or happily dating. When the producers ask her to find a match for Luke Chapman, one of the youngest and wealthiest tech moguls in the world, it’s a chance for Harper to pitch her secret project, Virtual Cupid—the innovative dating app she hopes to take public.

But when Harper hits enter and the program spits out the name of Luke’s ideal match, it’s immediately apparent there’s been some kind of mistake. She’s five hundred percent certain she removed her personal data after the beta testing phase, so why is she Luke’s perfect match? As Harper desperately tries to recalculate and recalibrate, it’s not just her technology that’s at risk of crashing…but also her heart.



A guy, a girl and a ghost prove true love withstands time and knows no boundaries.

Shay O’Malley moved to Mimosa Key, Florida to leave her past behind and help her Gram move forward. But Shay's plans evaporate into thin air when a team of paranormal investigators shows up to try to prove her long-dead grandfather is still hanging around—much to her grandmother’s delight and to Shay's dismay. How is she supposed to make a clean start when one of the team turns out to be a ghost from her past—and feelings she thought were dead and buried materialize again?

For zookeeper/ghost hunter, Colin Mackay it’s another typical day filled with lions, tigers, and ghosts. Or not, as he’s never found the proof he needs to make him a true believer. He’s been on a hundred investigations over the years, and not much shocks him, except seeing Shay O’Malley again. It doesn't take special equipment to know that electromagnetic energy still sizzles between them.

They join forces to prove, once and for all, ghosts don’t exist. In order to succeed, they’ll have to put the past behind them, which is always easier said than done. With a little supernatural help they just may learn to have faith, trust and love will win.



Nick DeMarco was a covert operative who breezed in and out of the lives of the people he cared about, often without warning. This included his sister Josie’s best friend, Lila Novak.
Nick and Lila had a torrid affair the last time he dropped into Barefoot Bay, and memories of her kept him going when his last mission went bad. Now that he’s back, possibly for the long haul, he hopes Lila will forgive him for disappearing without a word.
Lila loves her life as a teacher at Mimosa High School, but her affair with Nick has thrown her a curveball she never expected. Carrying his baby, she’s faced with the loss of her job unless she agrees to to do the last thing she wants to do – marry him.



The guy who never quite fit in
The girl who got away
A new life…a new start
And seeing forever in her eyes
Shannon Wilde moved to Mimosa Key for a reboot. Leaving a string of bad boyfriends and bad decisions behind her, she’s ready for a new life by the Gulf in Barefoot Bay. Her job at the Eucalyptus Spa at Casa Blanca Resort gives her the chance to start her life over.
Billy Harris grew up on his uncle’s ranch as a poor relation. To his shock, the man left him a fortune when he died. Now Billy is buying his own piece of land in Cypress Corners, Florida, and plans to model his goat farm and visitor center after the amazing project planned on Barefoot Bay. He wants to make something of himself. Maybe then he can finally forget the girl who got away.
Billy and Shannon had one incredible night together six months ago, and since then he’s been carrying a torch for her. He watched as she fell for one jerk after another, and vows that if they ever get together again he’ll make sure she sticks with him.
When Billy shows up at the spa, Shannon’s stunned. He’s hot and sweet, and the best guy she’s ever known. He’s also the one guy who knows all of her dirty secrets. Still, she can’t deny the attraction that sizzles between them. Or how good he makes her feel about herself.
Will Billy be able to convince Shannon that they have a chance at forever?
Or will she deny the love he sees in her eyes?



Be My Baby is a cross between You’ve Got Mail and Cinderella with a dash of Ru Paul.

Kelly Edwards returned to her hometown of Mimosa Key to put some distance between her and her boss, Rafael Martinez, who she’s half in love with but is way out of her league and to possibly start a family on her own.  Thanks to a computer virus, her email contemplating having a child using a donor goes to Rafe instead of her sister.  He sees it as a way to get an heir without risking his heart.  But when Kelly gets a makeover from her high school friend who’s now a world class female impersonator, will Rafe’s offer be enough or will he need to up the ante to marriage?  If he does, will he be able to protect his heart from a woman who is able to disarm his defenses? 



When Sophia White’s wicked stepmother attempts to nab complete control of Kingdom Cosmetics with trickery, Sophia flees the downtown Manhattan apartment for the shores of Barefoot Bay until she can have an opportunity to take her deceased parents’ company back. There she winds up with seven adorable pets and the idea to start a pet spa at the local upscale resort, The Casa Blanca.

While Sophia made her escape, she isn’t forgotten. Her stepmother seethes in her penthouse apartment and plots for control of Kingdom Cosmetics. Waiting until the time is right, she sends a man as her poisoned apple to do her bidding.

Peirce Chase may be treated like a huntsman, but he’s not going to (metaphorically) stab Sophia in the heart. He loves her too much. But Peirce can’t just walk away. The evil wannabe queen has blackmailed him into working for her. If he can’t convince Sophia to sign over her shares of the company, he’s off to jail for a murder he didn’t commit.

Falling into an idyllic romance at the beach wasn’t in either of their plans and it may be the thing that shatters them both.

AS WHITE AS SAND is a retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale set in a small town contemporary romance atmosphere.

Chloe accepted that once again she’d be celebrating their anniversary alone while Logan was deployed in Afghanistan.  She should be used to it, except she wasn’t.  It was their tenth and she’d hoped somehow things would be different, especially when she finds out she’s pregnant with their third child.

Logan’s offered an assignment he can’t pass up—especially since he’ll be able to surprise his wife for their anniversary.  With a romantic weekend planned in Barefoot Bay, he couldn’t wait to get home and see the look on Chloe’s face. 

After being whisked away to the exclusive Casa Blanca resort, Chloe wrestles with the decision whether or not to tell Logan about the baby. Struggling with the thought of raising another child by herself while he’s in constant danger and thousands of miles away weighs on her heart.  Will it be a welcome surprise or ruin their special weekend?

The Road Is His Future...

Longtime steel hauler, Mason Kaine, a.k.a. Renegade, only needed a few things to be happy--The whisper of his tires on that long ribbon of highway in front of him, money and a life with no complications. Being an Asphalt Cowboy means long, lonely hours on the road, dedication to the job and going wherever the loads are needed. Mason liked it that way. Meeting a feisty blonde whose allure is more potent than the finest Kentucky bourbon was not on his itinerary. He knows he should just walk away and leave the woman to deal with whatever mess she's in. But can he really just leave her alone and injured at a truck stop when he knows she's in way over her head?

She's Running From Her Past...

Savannah Somers has been on the run and in hiding for more than four years. Working at a truck stop hundreds of miles from her former life, she's been able to blend in and stay safe. That is, until two people from the world she left behind and Mason Kaine walk into her new life on the same day. With her past chomping at her heels and Mason Kaine's scorching sex appeal, Savannah finds herself on a path with twice the danger and more than just her life at risk.

Can Savannah find the safety she's always needed...in the arms of a man like Renegade?

Will Mason be able to save Savannah without finding himself chained to a lifetime of troubles?

It'll take more than one hot load to find out if they'll make it together...for the long haul.

Excerpt; The silence between them dragged on for what felt like an eternity. She tried to rub away the goosebumps that rose across her arms. Waiting for him to speak, watching the array of emotions that donned his face as he seemed at a complete and total loss for words—made her nauseous. With all of the running she’d done over the years, she’d felt some strange sense of control in the crazy chaos that had become her life. Sitting beside Mason on that supple leather sofa, knowing he had the power to help or hurt her—she’d never felt less in control.

“Is that all? There’s nothing else you want to tell me?” He leaned forward, bracing his elbows on his legs and folded his hands together.

“Um, no. That’s all.” Her throat was dry, making her words raspy and weak sounding to her own ears. Of course there was more. She wanted more than a ride to Florida. She wanted him. But she couldn’t have him.

Raking his hands through his hair, he stood and turned to face her. “I’m not going to lie. That’s a lot to take in. To be honest, I haven’t been this pissed in a very long time.” The edge to his voice, the darkness in his eyes frightened her and she stiffened her spine, prepared for the worst.

“I’m sorry.”

He slammed his hand on the counter. Savannah flinched at his sudden outburst.

He scooped her up onto her feet. “For what? You did nothing wrong. Do you hear me?” Mason’s fingers dug into her arms, roughly but not painful. “Anyone who does the shit that man did to you and those animals is worse than the shit I’ve scraped off of my boots. Do you have any idea how badly I want to choke the life out of him for what he has done? There are three types of people in this world that I absolutely hate; men who abuse women, men who abuse children and men who abuse animals. They deserve nothing less than a trip to the fiery pits at the center of the earth. If I ever see this Vinny Bennet character, you can bet he’ll be begging for a lot more than mercy. Believe that.”

The fire in his eyes, the passion in his words and the way he held her took over any bit of self-control she possessed. The close quarters, though roomy enough, her chest was pressed to his as she looked up into the eyes of the kind of man she’d always prayed to find; a man who did more than say the right words. She knew Mason was being honest and he meant every word he’d said. He was the polar opposite of every man she’d ever known. He’d seen pain, loss and hardship—she could feel it. Savannah wasn’t sure what had made Mason the man he was, but she was grateful for it.

Before Savannah could stop herself, she stood on tiptoe and pressed her lips to his. Sweet heaven! The man’s lips were softer than she’d remembered. From the moment he’d first kissed her, she’d longed to feel his lips on hers again. Just as she settled into his embrace, relaxing herself against his rock-hard body and erection, she felt him tense up.

“Darlin’,’ he eased her away from him, holding her at arm’s length, the absence of shared body heat only increased her desire.
“You are the sweetest tastin’ thing I’ve had the pleasure of kissing in a very long time. But I don’t think this is what you want to do. I’m not sure you’re feelin’ up to what I have in store for you if this goes much further.”

“I appreciate your concern and while I admire your restraint—Mason, I don’t need your misguided sense of nobility right now. The only thing I need is to feel your body against mine. That’s all you need to worry about.”

Staring into his eyes, she eased her hands across his solid chest and over his muscular arms. Savannah knew she wouldn’t mind being held by those arms for the rest of her life. Taking his hands in hers, “I’ve spent years being nothing more than a fearful, suspicious woman broken by disappointment and heartache. I need this. I need you.”

Slipping the cotton shirt over her head, removed her jeans and pushed her panties to the floor. Baring herself to him; “Don’t make me beg, Mason. Let go of your morals or integrity or whatever you want to call it. Just make me feel how a woman is supposed to feel—even if it’s only for a little while. You wanna be my hero? Take off your pants.”
