Paying $10,000 for her didn't give Walker the right to make demands. Yet Paige found herself succumbing to his magnetism and on the verge of doing anything he asked. Anything.

Meet the Author




Roxanne started writing stories during eighth grade algebra class to escape x. She didn't know what x equaled. She didn't believe x actually equaled anything. Letters belong in words and words belong in sentences and sentences belong in the most magnificent place of all…books.

Books have been her passion since she galloped through Black Beauty at nine, breezed through Gone with the Wind at 11, soared with The Moonspinners at 13, and then wallowed in the Valley of the Dolls right around the time her braces came off and she discovered…boys.

Although she reads anything and everything -- including four newspapers a day -- Roxanne has never left the comfort of romance novels for very long. While attending UCLA, she worked at a Los Angeles TV station where the news producer convinced her to legally change her last name from Zink to St. Claire so he could do a segment on how to change your name, complete with cameras in the courtroom when the decree was pronounced official. Only in L.A.!

After graduating with a degree in mass communications, Roxanne appeared on the sitcoms Laverne & Shirley and Bosom Buddies and hosted a talk show called Between the Piers. Since it soon became evident she didn't have a future as Loni Anderson or Jane Pauley, she took her glamorous, legal name into the world of public relations and immediately found her niche. By day she promoted products and people, but at night…she still read and scribbled tales of love and adventure.

For the next 18 years as an executive with the world's largest PR firm, Roxanne's exposure to a wide range of businesses, clients and crisis situations fed her imagination with characters and storylines. During that time, she wrote lengthy business proposals, press kits and speeches for CEOs. When she would finish a particularly stirring marketing strategy, she would sigh and think…what a waste. I should be writing romance novels. Her need to touch a reader's emotions was evident when she once sent a product rollout plan to a client with a cover note that read: "Read it and weep."

In 1999 she wrote her first manuscript and seriously began the pursuit of publication in early 2000. Two years later, she sold her first single title romantic suspense novel, and today Roxanne writes full-time. Having experienced every aspect of big-city life in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Boston and Miami, Roxanne is happily settled in a quiet beachfront community in Florida with her husband and two children. When not writing, she is a hard-working mother of two elementary school-age children who, unfortunately, will soon be starting algebra.

You can write to her at P.O. Box 372909, Satellite Beach, Florida, 32937.

    The Right Bid for Love - Another Wonderful Book by Rocki St. Claire

    The Highest Bidder is a wonderful addition to the Dynasties series The Ashton's. I chose this book because of the author, quite honestly. However, after reading this book I realized that the entire series must be very good based on the family itself, full of mystery intrigue, disfunction and dynamics. The main characters Matt and Paige are a warm, witty and sensual couple. When Paige finds herself in a uncomfortable situation on stage because a bachelorette had gone missing, her cousin's friend Matt feels sorry for her. So Matt bids a ton of $$'s and wins the chance for a date with Paige. As their story enfolds, one is treated to learning about this couple. Matt, a self made millionaire, not born into wealth, holds his emotions in, funny, sexy, intelligent, talented. Paige, the baby in the Ashton family, shy, smart, sweet, sensitive and the Winery event planner. Their journey together is bitter sweet and I honestly couldn't but the book down. I think I'm going to invest in the rest of the series based on this book. If you enjoy The Highest Bidder then you'll enjoy Roxanne's McGrath Brother Series by Silhoueette Desire....The Fire Still Burns, Like a Hurricane and When the Earth Moves. From the Back Cover: Socialite Paige Ashton had never expected to enter the charity auction she had organized. But when a bachelorette went missing, she found herself standing on stage, the sudden 'property' of the most undeniably handsome man in the room. Walker Camberlane had decided to rescue Paige from her uncomfortable situation with the highest bid. But he was also interested in the Ashton beauty for an altogether different reason. Paying $10,000 for her didn't give Walker the right to make demands. Yet Paige found herself succumbing to his magnetism and on the verge of doing anything he asked. Anything.

    Nice

    Very nice read ## I recently discovered roxanne st. Claire and loved tropical getaway and killer curves, so i decided to try this one. I was not disappointed. Her writing amazes me. Although not as in depth as the other two books, this story was sexy and fun. And the hero was hot. Worth your time
