Fall in love with a Hagen novel

Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay Kindle World

What she wants . . .
Laura Adams never considered herself brave, especially after the motorcycle death of her husband left her a struggling, grieving, single mother. But two years later, and with a new career, Laura chances a better life for herself and her young son: a life-altering move to Mimosa Key. She hopes for an eventual relationship with a safe and stable man, but the last place she expects to find him is on the barstool next to her after her friend stands her up for their girls’ night out.

What he needs . . . 
Jack Stephenson isn’t a man who runs away, but relocating to Mimosa Key to open a second branch of his business is a good reason to escape his haunted past and the three-decades-old mistake that burdens him. Grateful for the change of scenery, he takes a ride on his bike, stopping for a cold beer. He’s surprised by a pretty redhead, twenty years his junior, who catches his interest with the most intriguing line ever.

Taking a chance . . .
Despite their best intentions, and going against conventions, their growing attraction is unstoppable. As Jack’s past revisits him like a sucker punch, Laura fights falling for him, a man whose risk-taking threatens her newly constructed world. Jack realizes that earning forever with Laura means somehow forgiving himself for the past he cannot change and proving to Laura that if she’ll let him, he’ll be the solid rock she dreams of for herself and the boy he’s come to love as his own.

 

She’s poison to men . . .
Maureen LaCroix is certain of only three things: She’s looking down the barrel of forty; her life is a sea of uncertainty; and it appears she is metaphorical poison to men, as she has buried two much older husbands she loved—none of which inspires her to go looking for a relationship, and especially not with a man ten years her junior who has shadows in his eyes and a life as tangled as the seaweed washing up on the shores of Mimosa Key.

He’s candy to women . . .
Dominic Centore, injured shortstop for the Miami Marlins, is facing an uncertain career and news of an unborn child that may or may not be his. The timing is less than perfect for lighting the fuse on a fiery beach affair, but when has Dominic ever backed down from a challenge? Maureen LaCroix is beautiful and smart, and if she happens to be a widow and older than he by a decade, so what? Based on the lady’s protestations, he’s sure she isn’t looking at him as husband number three.

Together they’re unforgettable . . .
Dominic is lured by Maureen’s classy good looks, quick wit, and strength. He’s all for an affair, but soon discovers Maureen engages more than just his body—she challenges his mind, his heart, and every other woman pales in comparison. For the first time in his life, he’s entertaining thoughts of forever. All he has to do is convince Maureen it’s time to forget her mournful past and take a gamble on a younger man. It won’t be easy, he knows. It will be an . . . Unconventional Seduction.
