Barefoot At Sunset by Roxanne St. Claire #Romance #BookReview @roxannestclaire

Introducing Barefoot Bay Timeless…a new trilogy celebrating the sexy silver fox hero! Set on the sun-washed sands of Barefoot Bay, these contemporary novels tell stories of second chances and redemption.






Barefoot at Sunset

When forty-eight year old widower Mark Solomon arrives in Barefoot Bay for his high school reunion, he’s not quite prepared for the onslaught of memories or the attention from interested single women who’ve gathered for the annual event on the beach. He’s ready to ditch the whole thing and resume his life as an adventure-seeking world traveler until he discovers a woman sobbing on his doorstep…and has an idea.

By her own admission, advertising copywriter Emma DeWitt is jaded, jilted, and jobless, but she goes over the edge when she learns that the resort villa that was supposed to be the site of her romantic honeymoon is occupied by a single man. But when the sexy silver fox who’s staying in the villa surprises her with an irresistible offer to pose as his fake fiancée, Emma sees a way to have her week in paradise and begin healing her broken heart.

Mark believes every person has only one soul mate…and he’s met, married, and buried his. Emma believes that love is a marketing concept created to sell fairy tales and expensive weddings. What if they are both wrong…and completely right for each other?

Don’t miss a minute in Barefoot Bay!

My Review

I love feel-good romances with plenty of heat and Barefoot At Sunset fulfilled all my expectations, and then some.


Mark Solomon gets wrangled into attending his highschool reunion on Barefoot Cay, but looks forward to it with mixed feelings with the death of his wife sixteen years earlier. All his friends would be empathetic of his loss, and the single women in their group would be there to offer comfort. None of which he wanted.

Emma DeWitt arrives at Barefoot Bay heartbroken after her fiancé jilts her on the eve of their wedding, but determined to enjoy the honeymoon she’d so carefully dreamed and planned for.

Only one problem; there was a man in her suite. A sexy, mature, too-kind-for-his-own-good man who takes her in and offers her a way to stay that will benefit both of them

Pretend to be his fiancée for a week.

Other than an overemphasis on the whole silver fox thing, I loved this second chance romance story!

I give Barefoot at Sunset 5 lovely kisses
