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!
