Secrets on the Sand (The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay)
By: Roxanne St. Claire

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire has been enchanting readers with stories set on an idyllic slice of paradise off the coast of Florida known as Barefoot Bay for two years.  In the first Barefoot Bay series, four friends joined forces to build and run a homegrown resort and spa and, in the process, found life-long love.

Now it is time to get to know some of the special guests of Casa Blanca Resort & Spa, which is fast turning into a playground for the rich and an elite destination wedding site.  In the brand new Billionaires of Barefoot Bay trilogy, meet a trio of sexy heroes and the most unlikely ladies who steal their hearts in three novella-length love stories.

Book Description

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: a lifelong partner and true love.  Zeke grew up near Barefoot Bay and is staying at the resort for a week while he’s in town for a family event. Enter Mandy Mitchell...the maid.  Except, Mandy is much more than that to Zeke—she was the object of his every teenage dream back in the days when she was known as “Mandy the Magnificent” and he had the unflattering high school nickname of “Ezekiel the Geekiel.”

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.  The minute they meet again, Mandy knows he’s exactly the kind of trouble she should avoid...but Zeke does have one thing Mandy needs to gain the independence she craves.  Will he give it to her?  One look at Mandy, and Zeke turns his relentless ability to get what he wants into a full-on seduction and he’s ready to give her anything.  But can Mandy face down the secrets of her past to find a fairy-tale future with Zeke?

    Secrets on the Sand by Roxanne St Claire Mandy Mitchell was the high school Homecoming Queen. But an unfortunate choice of a former husband has drastically changed her income level and she is now barely hanging on as a maid at Barefoot Bay. With a supervisor out to make trouble, Mandy soon finds herself in a compromising situation with Zeke Nicholas. Zeke had a crush on Mandy back in high school and he's not about to let her slip away this time around. Mandy has been emotionally burned and Zeke will have to move carefully to gain her trust. A lovely emotionally touching romance with a little zip and humor thrown into this novella. It's fun to re-visit Barefoot Bay and visit with old friends while living a new romance. Mandy and Zeke are instantly attracted when they re-meet and it's exciting to follow their pretend courtship while it becomes real and meaningful to them both. And oh, we need to wish that Tori gets what she deserves at some point. And what of the rest of that Billionaire softball team? I want to know which ladies will take out the next player from the team. I'm looking forward to reading more Barefoot Bay treasures. I received a copy of this book from the author.
