New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire continues her popular Barefoot Bay series with more of the “Barefoot Brides” —destination wedding planners who are experts at dreamy “I do’s” but haven’t yet found their happily ever after.
As her two best friends settle into their happily ever afters, destination wedding designer Arielle Chandler is beginning to wonder if the promise of “The One”—one true love, meant only for her—is merely folklore passed down from her Native American mother. But when a mysterious man nearly mows her down on a hill overlooking Barefoot Bay, the legend of destined love suddenly feels very real. That is, until Ari learns of Luke McBain’s plans to demolish a piece of land she believes is sacred.
Luke isn’t proud of the fact that he spent ten years as a mercenary warrior, fighting battles for another country. With those dark days behind him, he’s focused on creating a new life instead of destroying others, so he’s moved to Barefoot Bay to launch a contracting business and build a house for an old friend. But when an enigmatic dark-eyed beauty steals his attention and stops his progress with her announcement that he is about to flatten a native burial ground, Luke has a new battle to fight.
While their immediate and potent attraction grows complicated, Luke and Ari discover the hills of Barefoot Bay could be hiding something far different—and even more valuable—than ancient art or graves. They are determined to discover the truth, but that will come at a cost. Will they risk their chance at once-in-a-lifetime love to uncover secrets that could change the landscape of Barefoot Bay forever?
An amazing addition to the Barefoot Bay series of books. Filled with lots of old characters and introducing us to some new ones gives us hope of more books in the future set on this picturesque little island.
This is the story of Arielle Chandler and Luke McBain. She's determined to preserve what she feels is a Native American burial ground and he is just as determined to get a house built there. When she starts probing and asking questions, he has to agree there are more questions than answers.
This one has a bit of mystery and suspense in it and introduces a new security operation to the island. Hmmmm....I can think of lots of stories with that!!
You don't want to miss this one, I highly recommend it.
Mystery and Romance
Roxanne does it again with book 3 in the Barefoot Brides series. Love finds two great characters, Luke and Ari, and takes them on a fast pace, mystery filled journey. This is a must read if you have enjoyed the other Barefoot Bay books. Enjoy!!

Arielle Chandler meets The One in this Barefoot Bay contemporary romance by Roxanne St Claire. It's an enchanting story with just a touch of suspense.
“Hey.” He snapped his fingers in front of her face, making her jump. “Do you know your name?” he asked sharply.
“Place of birth?”
“I don’t have one.”
His eyes flickered. “Phone number?”
She didn’t answer, but not because she couldn’t remember the number. But because his smile went from almost to full force, and the impact actually hurt.
She could practically hear Grandma Good Bear describing exactly these feelings.
“No way!” She shook her head, still not believing it.
“Hey, it was worth a try.” Still smiling, he leaned back on his haunches. “Since you’re coherent enough to turn me down, you must be okay, Arielle Chandler from Sacramento, California.” Then he let his gaze drop over her. “Yeah, you’re fine.”
And all those dancing cells in her body tripped and flatlined.”
