BAREFOOT IN THE SAND
St. Claire, as always, brings a scorching tear-up-the-sheets romance combined with a great story: dealing with real issues starring memorable characters in vivid scenes. Best of all, since this is book one in the Barefoot Bay series, there’s more to come.
Hurricane Damian took everything from Lacey Armstrong but her life and her daughter. In the aftermath it left the opportunity for a new beginning and, hopefully, the courage to follow through on her dream of opening a resort. Clay Walker needs an architectural project of his own to get out from under his father’s thumb. Lacey and Clay start out all business as they plan her resort, but lust soon takes over — followed by secrets, mistrust and denial. A bright future gleams just out of reach, unless they can learn from their past mistakes. (FOREVER, May, 432 pp., $5.99)
