Overview

Meet the Barefoot Billionaires: One’s a gorgeous geek, one’s a lucky daredevil, and one’s a trying-to-reform bad boy...but all three are about to meet their match on the sun-drenched shores of Barefoot Bay. One book with three unforgettable love stories.

SECRETS ON THE SAND
Zeke Nicholas has turned his mathematical genius skills into a mountain of money. But Zeke sits on that mountain all alone, longing for the one thing money cannot buy: the true love of a lifelong partner. Enter Mandy Mitchell...the maid. Except to Zeke, Mandy is much more than that—she was once the object of his every teenage fantasy.

Zeke is no longer a geek -- he’s gorgeous. And Mandy doesn’t feel so magnificent since her marriage fell apart and left her up to her eyeballs in debt and despair. One look at Mandy, and Zeke turns his relentless ability to get what he wants into a full-on seduction. But can Mandy face down the secrets of her past to find a fairy-tale future with Zeke?

SEDUCTION ON THE SAND
Like everything in his life, becoming a billionaire was easy for Elliott Becker. He bought some land in Massachusetts and discovered he sat on two billion dollars worth of rare Goshen stone. Lucky, charming, and blessed with every gift from every god, Elliott expects his simple purchase of property in Barefoot Bay will go the way everything does for him in life...easy. Until he meets the woman who currently owns that land and suddenly everything is...hard.

Frankie Cardinale’s fondest memories took place on the tiny goat farm owned and run by her grandfather in the heart of Barefoot Bay. While she held her “Nonno” on his deathbed, she promised his land would never leave their family. Nothing -- not even a sexy, playful, intoxicating billionaire who always gets his way -- will convince her to break that promise. Because all the money in the world can’t buy Elliott what he really wants the most...Frankie’s love.

SCANDAL ON THE SAND
Nathaniel Ivory is known in the tabloids as “Naughty Nate,” and this son of a huge, wealthy family that’s often referred to as “American Royalty” has done everything he can to earn that nickname. Nate’s penchant for trouble has kept him from fully earning a respectable spot in the many family businesses. But Nate is determined to change all that -- all he has to do is avoid even a hint of scandal.

But then he meets Liza Lemanski, an irresistible, blue-eyed bundle of trouble who makes some claims about his past that rock him to the core. Can he give her what she wants to avoid another scandal...or is Liza the one woman who has what it takes to tame this sexy billionaire bad boy?

    Not that great

    Even though this book was free it dragged. I will not be reading the other books. Tried to introduce elements of bdsm and was so way off base with it.

    Enjoy 3 of Roxanne St. Claire¿s sexy stories all packed into one

    Enjoy 3 of Roxanne St. Claire’s sexy stories all packed into one warm read. Just what you need to start the spring thaw.


    Secrets on the Sand - Remember the labels that we used on each other in high school? Jock? Snob? Beauty Queen? Slut? Geek? Roxanne St. Claire has captured that time in our lives & brings the characters into adulthood. Proving that the labels we placed on one another may or may not be accurate later in life.

    Seduction on the Sand – will make you smile, laugh & your heart will hurt as the characters make their way through the ups and downs of discovering what each of them need to be complete. This book reminds me of an old movie that you have seen multiple times. If it’s on – YOU WILL WATCH IT – you can’t help yourself.

    Scandal on the Sand – features a bad boy billionaire and a woman who 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.

    Get your sunscreen out and enjoy the Sand Trilogy

    Reviews courtesy of ROmance Junkies  1.Amanda Lockhart was once

    Reviews courtesy of ROmance Junkies 

    1.Amanda Lockhart was once known as Mandy the Magnificent in high school. She had been the most popular girl at Mimosa High, the head cheerleader, homecoming queen and even runner up for Miss Teen Florida during her teenage years. Now she is down-on-her-luck, in debt and recovering from a disastrous marriage. Amanda is reduced to working as a maid to earn income which is quite the turnaround for someone of her once illustrious status quo.
    Zeke Nicholas’s nickname in school was Ezekiel the Geekiel. He was the math geek, nerdy and scrawny, Amanda’s polar opposite in high school’s status. Zeke had even harbored a secret crush for Amanda but never summoned the courage to confess his feelings. Their roles reversed, Zeke is no longer scrawny but physically built from time at the gym and a billionaire due to his math skills.
    SECRETS ON THE SAND is the first book in THE BILLIONAIRES OF BAREFOOT BAY series, a spin-off from Ms. St. Claire’s BAREFOOT series. It made me smile and feel happily reminiscent when beloved characters from the BAREFOOT series made appearances in the story. Zoe and Jocelyn’s names were mentioned while Lacey had a more prominent role in the tale.
    Usually I do not like reading novellas because I feel they are far too short, the story rushed to meet the requirements for novellas, and vital or important tidbits missing. However, I did not have those feelings towards SECRETS ON THE SAND. The pacing of the novella felt similar to that of her full-length novels and nothing seemed left out.
    SECRETS ON THE SAND is a light-hearted, sweet, feel-good read that had me sighing contently at the end. Roxanne St. Claire swept me up into the story and caused me to sympathize for Amanda’s plight without making her character annoying. I can see this series ranking right up there with her other books and awaiting for the next installment with impatience.


    2. Francesca (Frankie) Cardinale is a goatherd. She raises and breeds goats for their milk and uses the milk to make fragrant soaps to sell. Frankie has experienced the misery money can bring. Her parents died when she was a teen because they needed to have more. Frankie made a deathbed promise to her departed grandfather that the property would remain in the Cardinale family.
    Elliot Becker is a Stetson-wearing, Texan-drawling billionaire. He made his fortune from sheer luck of buying property and discovering it had a pricy stone called Goshen on it. As a child, his family moved around a lot, which taught him to behave like a chameleon, adapting to any role or situation to fit in.
    Elliott's character and personality zinged with me. He became my instant favorite out of all of Roxanne St. Claire's characters. Many times as I read his quips and antics, they made me smile or laugh. For all his swagger, talk and charisma, Elliott has a soft, sensitive and insecure side he never reveals to others.
    Frankie differs from Roxanne St. Claire's previous heroines. She struck me as not your common run-of-the-mill strong and independent heroine. Frankie has a different sort of strength that I found admirable. Her spunk and snark make her fun to connect with.
    What I like most are their interactions. It is so fun and lively. The pacing of the book is similar to SECRETS ON THE SAND. It moves at a steady clip. I never got the feeling that it was rushed like I sometimes do with novellas.
    SEDUCTION ON THE SAND is a playful and tenderhearted read. I really hated to see the book end because I had such fun reading about Frankie and Elliott's unconventional courtship. Roxanne St. Claire continues the trend that she established with the BAREFOOT series and SECRETS ON THE SAND. I believe SEDUCTION ON THE SAND easily surpassed its predecessor.


    3 Nathaniel “Nate” Ivory is a party-boy billionaire from a famous family. The media knows him best as “Naughty Nate” because scandals are nothing new to him and the Ivorys. He wants to put his wild, bad-boy ways behind him and prove to his grandfather, the family’s strict patriarch, his true worth. The unexpected news of his fatherhood status threatens to skew his attempt.
    Liza Lemanski works at the County Clerk’s office. She knows her way around legal documents, able to spot a phony by a glance. All Liza wants is to adopt her deceased friend’s four-year-old; however, she needs the father to sign away his rights. But, Liza learns that the relationship her friend alluded to was fabricated.
    At the start of the trilogy, I was on the fence about Nate. I did not have much on his personality, unlike his two friends, to draw an opinion. Book two gave a bit more insight, but not enough to reel me in. It did succeed in making me curious to learn how he got that scandalous reputation as a celebrity bad boy.
    SCANDAL ON THE SAND delves deeper into Nate, answering all that I wondered about the man. In the beginning of the book, he came off as a jerk in his interaction with Liza. Yet, as I got deeper into the book, my opinion changed. Nate redeems himself as he grew and changed from the party-boy of his reputation.
    I liked Liza since her introduction in SEDUCTION ON THE SAND. And the fact that she was no way impressed with Nate’s celebrity status or his money made her a fast favorite heroine. She continued to interest me with her pluckiness and determination. She is a perfect fit for Nate.
    SEDUCTION ON THE SAND is a charming conclusion to THE BILLIONAIRES OF BAREFOOT BAY trilogy. The story is light-hearted goodness. It was nice to reacquaint with Tessa and Ian again. These spin offs always lend a deeper view into past books’ hero and heroine’s happily ever after.

    Three novellas in one set. Each book is a stand alone but flow

    Three novellas in one set. Each book is a stand alone but flow nicely together with reoccurring characters. The Billoinaires arrive to Barefoot Bay, not excepting to find their HEA. This is a spin off from the Barefoot Bay books. Looking forward to reading the next Barefoot books. Highly recommend!
