Publisher's Summary

Introducing Barefoot Bay Undercover, a romantic adventure series set on the tropical beaches of Barefoot Bay.
When former CIA consultant Gabe Rossi creates a secret privatized witness protection operation hidden within the security firm at the local resort, things get a little more suspenseful on the island paradise. Gabe's clients need to keep low profiles and stay safe while he helps them create new identities, and sometimes they find love.
Barefoot with a Bodyguard - book one in the series
About to take the bar exam after ending a five-year marriage that derailed her career plans and her life, Kate Kingston craves independence and a vacation. Somewhere warm with sea breezes, sunshine, sand, and none of the scary threats against her that have been showing up in her dad's office. Barefoot Bay is the perfect place for some serenity while she studies and puts her life back together. But when she meets the brooding wall of muscle her father hired to protect her, Kate feels her hard-won independence slipping away as fast as her resolve to avoid men who wield power over her.
Mixed martial arts trainer Alec Petrov has been on the run for a long time. Guarding a feisty attorney-to-be while pretending to be her husband is not a bad way to live off the grid, hidden from the Russian mobster who is hunting Alec with deadly intent. But Kate brings out a tender side Alec doesn't understand or believe he deserves, and he soon realizes that keeping them both safe is only half the challenge. Keeping his hands off her and his attraction under control will be every bit as difficult in the close quarters of an exclusive resort.
When their make-believe honeymoon in paradise turns sensual, complicated, and dangerous, Alec and Kate realize it's not just their lives that are in jeopardy, it's their hearts. And they'll have to fight to the end to save each other...and their love.

Roxanne St. Claire/Barefoot Undercover Fan

As headlined, I'm a big Rocki St. Claire fan and when I got the chance to grab this book in audio, I couldn't resist. I'm always a little leery about audio versions of romance novels, though. Who does it better? A male narrator or a female? I think it depends on the book and the narrator. In this case, Kaleo Griffith did a great job with the male characters and the couple of accents needed for correct characterizations and I wasn't disappointed in his narrative take on the heroine. This is a book with strong male characters--not only the hero but the secondary characters as well. And the heroine is sarcastic and brash so in this case, the Mr. Griffith's narration worked to perfection. I loved this book in "written" format and now I get to enjoy it "on the run" with the audio.

Opposites Attract!

What made the experience of listening to Barefoot with a Bodyguard the most enjoyable?

Alex! I loved the character of Alex. He's this big strapping guy and tough as nails but he's still very vulnerable. He's damaged emotionally and has to hide it try to deal with that while protecting Kate who grew up very differently from him.


What other book might you compare Barefoot with a Bodyguard to and why?

I'm a fan of Roxanne St Claire's previous romantic suspense books and Gabe is a part of some of those so any of those books would compare even though these have a more contemporary feel to them.


Have you listened to any of Kaleo Griffith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I liked Kaleo Griffith other narration of Roxanne St Claire's work. He does a awesome job with the male voices but the female voices don't always ring true for me. Overall the narration is good though.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Fake names and histories can't stop love from finding their hearts.
