Giveaway: Barefoot in the Sun - Roxanne St. Clair (With Guest Post)



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?

Roxanne's Favorite Summer Memory
Great question! Might be the toughest question I’ve ever been asked because, ahem, what if my husband reads this and he’s not the object of my best summer romance memory?  Oh, I have so many!  So, I’ll go waaaaay back...to my pre-teen years.  My family took a vacation in Florida and I was about twelve or thirteen. Not my peak beauty years, I’ll admit.

But one day as I walked the beach looking for shells with my older sister, I spied a boy about my age, who seemed not to notice that I had braces, boring brown hair, and nature hadn’t quite filled me out yet.  I think it was that moment that my sister taught me the “laugh with your friend even if nothing’s funny because everyone is more attractive when they laugh” trick.  It worked!

He eventually came over and talked to me and for the next week we took a few walks on the beach and talked.  His name was Barry, he had a shock of bright red hair, a very sweet personality, and he lived in Canada.  I wish I could remember his last name -- I’d find him on Facebook right now!  At the end of the week, he gave me my first little kiss (chaste!) and we exchanged (dating myself here) street addresses.  Like, you know, snail mail.  We corresponded for about a year but lost touch.  I’m sure he doesn’t remember the girl from Pittsburgh, but I remember him because he was the first boy to make me feel truly pretty.  And my sister is right - everyone is more attractive when they’re laughing!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
