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.

    Ok but only if it were free

    Kendra keeps making the same mistake. In real life, men dont change their basic personality. Deuce is a little boy and not worth her time.

    One of the best!

    Hands down, one of the best category romance books I've ever read, and I've read a lot. Emotional, sexy, funny, sweet. Please tell me there's a sequal!

    Sinfully Good

    I read a lot of category romance but every once in a while an author just jumps off the page as better than all the rest. Like Suzanne Brockmann did and Linda Howard and even Janet Evanovich when she first started. This author is like that -- really a gifted writer and a great storyteller. These characters are so real and so sweet, you can't help but root for them. The hero is a former baseball player with an attitude and the heroine is a woman who had a childhood crush on him, and let herself make the biggest mistake of her life years ago. As they come to grips with 'the sins of the past' the reader is sucked in and falls in love with them. I want more, Ms. Claire!!!

    Sinfully sexy

    Roxanne St. Claire has yet again, told an incredible and passionate love story. If you¿ve ever had a crush and your dream came true, well this is the book for you! It¿s sinfully sexy, full of hopes and dreams and just took my breath away. It¿s 5 stars and more. From Back of Book: For one incredible night, Kendra Locke gave Deuce Monroe everything she had. Then he walked away without a backward glance to chase his big-league dreams as far as they would take him. Years later, after one daredevil stunt too many, Deuce was back in his hometown, ready to pick up where he left off. Kendra had no intention of letting him. The consequences of that one night had shattered her dreams. Now what Deuce wanted threatened her future...especially when he tempted her with the sensual promise of more time in his bed. Could she be the one to walk away?
