I love Nice Nate ;) and the fierce Liza...but I got so attached to everyone in this book. that little boy, Dylan...I just adore him! I love the transformation of Nate's character. I love love love Liza as she puts on a show about being his bodyguard as they search for the truth about Dylan's biological mom.  so passionate, hot, romantic....and still rooted in family, self discovery, and truth. so beautiful!

This is the third novella of the Billionaires on Barefoot Bay. The story of Naughty Nate, who was wild and carefree in his younger years and now wants to clean up his act. Liza shows up at Barefoot, with papers to sign over custody of his son, that he never knew anything of. Nick and Liza go on a journey to find out who is the real mother of his son, many fabrications of this woman that is now deceased. This is my favorite of the Billionaires. Nick is so likeable to me. He is trying so hard to make things right with out the scandal to him and his family as he falls for Liza. I was lucky to receive ARC of this book from the author for a honest review.

This is a great way to warm up on a cold day! Scandal on the Sand will have you smiling, laughing & your heart aching for these characters. Meet Nate Ivory the bad boy billionaire. He has a reputation for being a party boy with a trust fund. Nate is trying to redeem himself in the eyes of his family. He doesn’t need another scandal & it looks like that’s what he’s going to get. Liza Lemanski wants something from Nate but it’s not what he thinks. She will do ANYTHING to ensure the safety of the child that she loves. Add a 4 year old who loves to spell & you’ve got B-I-G entertainment.

God, I loved this book! I loved Naughty Nate! I loved Liza! And I really loved Dylan. What a fun little kid. Nate and Liza took us on a fun adventure trying to understand everything that happened in the past with Nate and Liza's old roommate, Carrie Cassidy. I want to spend a week on the yatch N'Vidrio! That ship sounds heavenly. I can't even imagine living that lifestyle. I love how Naughty Nate was trying to change his playboy ways and that by meeting Liza, for the first time he really wanted to. The only negative I can say about this book is that I wish it was longer. There was so much more that could have been developed in the story. I would love to meet some more of Nate's family. They sound like a hoot. Maybe a new series....The Ivory Towers? Great, fun, sexy read. Loved their happy ending!

This is the third and final novella of Roxanne St. Claire’s Billionaires of Barefoot Bay trilogy, an enjoyable spin-off of her fantastic Barefoot Bay series. It is hands down my favorite of the three. It can be read by itself, but I would recommend reading the first two stories, Secrets on the Sand and Seduction on the Sand, just to get to know the background and the other characters.  Nate Ivory, billionaire playboy, known as “Naughty Nate” in the tabloids is trying hard to move past the partying womanizer he once was. His antics were well documented much to the dismay of his grandfather, the Colonial, and tarnishing the name of Ivory Glass, the family-owned company. Determined to clean up his image, Nate and his two friends Zeke and Elliot, are building a minor league baseball stadium on Mimosa Key and the team that will play there. Just when things are improving for Nate, Liza Limansky shows up and wants him to sign a Termination of Parental Rights paper for a five year old boy he knows nothing about. This is not your typical “son he didn’t know he had” story. Nate is sure he would remember the beautiful Liza, but he doesn’t. So why would she want him to sign the paper? Does he have a son or is she just another gold digger trying to tap into his money? Another scandal, he does not need. What he needs even less is another tabloid story and his grandfather’s wrath. Things do not add up and Nate and Liza set out to find the truth. What they didn’t expect to find was love. She is exactly what he needs to keep him out of trouble and on the right path in life. And he is what she needs in her “almost-but-not-quite” life. The result is a delightful, sweet love story with a touch of mystery. I’m sad to see the billionaires’ stories end, but I hope we might see a little more of them in the Brides of Barefoot Bay, coming soon.

I was lucky enough to get an early review copy of Scandal on the Sand. I’m a huge fan of Roxanne St. Claire and couldn’t wait to read Nate and Liza’s story.  I loved both Nate and Liza so much in this book. Nate was trying to turn his life around and lose his “Naughty Nate” nickname. Of course this is right when he meets Liza. Liza is such a strong character. She has been helping her friend raise her son since he was born and has been his guardian for the last year.  I felt the connection between Nate and Liza from the moment they met, even as they argued about Dylan. I really loved that even thought they were so different, they worked perfectly as a couple for me. I also loved they both were super protective of Dylan. I loved watching them grow closer and start a real relationship the longer they spent time together. The chemistry got stronger and stronger between them as well. Nate had already started turning his life around when this story started. I loved watching him grow even more as this story progressed. I’ve loved each of the Billionaires of Barefoot Bay stories so much. Just something about Nate and Liza’s story that made it my favorite of the 3.  I highly recommend all of the books in this series and am already counting down until the next new release from Roxanne St. Clarie.

Roxanne St Claire has written the third book in the Barefoot Bay Billionaires series. This story is about Nathaniel Ivory, but by the tabloids as “Naughty Nate. When a woman shows up with papers for him to sign giving up his rights to a son he has no idea he has, is the boy his or is it just another person trying to con him out of some of his money. Liza claims she just wants custody of the boy, but Nate wonders how he can have a son by a woman he doesn't even remember, is she out for money. When Nate sees a photo of the boy, he is the spitting image of him. Liz, found a notebook, by a women who she call a good friend after dies in a car accident. Everything that Nate, needs to know is supposed to be in this notebook that was left behind after she has died. After reading the notebook he realize that it is fill with a lot of fabrication. So he and Liz decide to get to the bottom of everything. They decide to figure out where the truth begins, and where the lies begin. Then as they both start to undercover that they have both been lied to. During their journey they find the answers to the mystery of the boy's paternity. They found that they are drawn to one another but encounter what appear to be insurmountable obstacles that includes the power of Nate's family, and more secrets and scandal, but you need to read this story to find out just how it will end. This is a must read, and if you haven't read the first two, you need to pick them up.

 Scandal on the Sand is Nate's story, the last of 3 novellas in the Billionaires of Barefoot Bay Series.      I'm not surprised that Roxanne St.Claire did it again...wrote a great story and gave her characters so much depth that you can feel their emotions. This is a solid story of change, priorities, values, courage and, of course, love.      Ms. St. Claire took us back to Casa Blanca, a resort built in her Barefoot Bay Series. She included a cameo appearance from Tessa, the gardener  for the resort. I love the way Ms. St. Claire weaves some of the characters together from both series, it makes it feel like one wonderful story that I can get lost in!      I really liked this book, it had the feel of a full length novel, it felt real and I could relate to Liza on many levels.      I've heard there's going to be a new Barefoot Bay series, 'Brides of Barefoot Bay'...I'm really looking forward to them!!

A scandal and love… This was my favorite of the Barefoot Bay Billionaire novellas, the third in the series which can be read as a stand-alone. Nathaniel Ivory is trying to clean up his act. He has lived the bad boy life for too long. He has taken on the manager role of a minor league baseball team and stadium but he needs to avoid further scandals. There is something about Nate’s heartfelt desire to be a better man so those he loves can approve of him that just captured you. Yes he earned the name Naughty Nate in his younger days and has had to live with the consequences of those actions ever since. But he is not that man anymore and wants to prove it, to his family, to his friends, and especially to himself. Liza Lemanski works in the county’s documents office. She is great, she’s smart and sassy; a tough yet caring, loving individual who wants nothing more than to keep the son her friend left her the guardian of whom she loves tremendously. But first she needs the father to sign over his parental rights to her and that man is Naughty Nate. A man who doesn’t even remember her friend and the son in question looks so much like. Together they research the puzzle that was her friend and along the way their attraction turns into love. Their romance was sweet but the way to their HEA was fraught with a few landmines.

Scandal in the Sand brings us the story of “Naughty Nate” and Liza. Nate is trying to leave his playboy ways behind, though being a member of the famous Ivory family means it isn’t easy. Liza is trying to move on with her life after the death of her best friend leaves her to raise a rambunctious 4-year old. These two should never be right for each other, yet the sparks fly the moment they meet. I really enjoyed Nate and Liza. There is something about a devoted playboy turning into a devoted father that just tugs at my heartstrings. I’m sad to see the Billionaire Bachelors come to an end, I want more!

In Scandal on the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire, "Naughty Nate" has been working to clean up his reputation and his lifestyle.  His current business adventure is bringing a minor league baseball team to Barefoot Bay with his two friends.   Just as things seem to be on track for Nate, Liza shows up.  A woman he's never laid eyes on before who has some shocking news for Nate.  Nate and Liza are having trouble trusting each other, but they soon are working together to uncover the truth about Liza's now deceased friend...whose son Liza is now raising...who also happens to be the son Nate never knew he had.   There are secrets that neither can even guess at, and the scandal could rock Nate's world.  But Nate refuses to take the easy way out, and he and Liza have some incredible chemistry together, even if they both still have their doubts about the other.  Misunderstandings and poor communication soon mean Nate could stand to lose a lot more than he ever anticipated...unless he can show Liza who he really is and that he is not playing games.  Both will have to decide what is right for them.   Liza and Nate might have different approaches to life, but the end goal for both of them is the same.  Liza is cautious but not afraid to go after what she wants.  Nate is a billionaire playboy on the surface, but if anyone takes the time to look below the surface he is so much more than that!  Liza was a bit frustrating because she first saw only what she wanted to see in Nate.  But sometimes things are not what they seem as she soon discovers!   Roxanne gives us a serious, but entertaining romance in Scandal on the Sand.  Her writing makes it easy to become involved in the story of Nate and Liza.  Roxanne gives us secrets, meddling but well meaning family members and friends, and another chance to visit Barefoot Bay.  Well paced and easy to follow, Scandal on the Sand can be read alone, but reading the other books in this series will enhance your experience in Barefoot Bay!   I'd recommend Scandal on the Sand to any romance reader!
