St. Claire brings us back to Barefoot Bay and to the resort owned by four friends. Wonderful, efficient storytelling and genuine, sympathetic characters are the hallmarks of this story as St. Claire exposes desires that lie deep within the heart. Sprinkled with humor and warmth, this fourth in St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay series does not disappoint.

Tessa Galloway wants a baby. Badly. She just needs a sperm donor. So when John Brown, the chef for Barefoot Bay’s new resort, arrives he seems to be a perfect candidate. Tessa becomes quite taken by him and, suddenly, the baby goal doesn’t seem to be enough. In the witness protection program, John needs to have a steady job and life — including a wife — to be able to see his children again. As he falls in love with Tessa, he can visualize the wife part ... but will he capture her heart? (FOREVER, Nov., 448 pp., $8.00)
