Synopsis


A Barefoot Bay Novel

When running is all you've ever known . . .

Caught between fight and flight, Zoe Tamarin has always picked flight. Since she was rescued from a nightmare childhood by her great-aunt Pasha, they've been on the move, never staying in one place long enough to risk exposing their precarious past. But now that they've reached the sun-baked shores of Barefoot Bay, Zoe may have to stay and fight-for her aunt's life . . . and for a love she ran from years before.

Sometimes the bravest act of all is to stand still.

Oliver Bradbury came to Florida to start over, as both a doctor and a father to his eight-year-old son. He never expected life to hand him a second chance with the woman he lost years ago-but one look at Zoe Tamarin and he knows he'll do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he can be the man she needs. But when demands of family and friendship threaten to shatter their rekindled passion, Oliver must heal Zoe's lifelong wounds with more than hot kisses . . . but will that be enough to keep her from flying off with his heart?

 

About Roxanne St. Claire

See more books from this 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.
