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.

Amazing story

Would you listen to Barefoot with a Bodyguard again? Why?

I loved this story and would listen to it over and over again


Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Gabe Rossi is my most favorite character in the series, however I quickly fell in love with both Alec and Kate. They are both such strong individuals and I loved how different they were yet totally worked for me as a couple. I especially loved how protective they both were of one another.


Which scene was your favorite?

I loved Kate trying to guess Alec's real name. They had serious chemistry but some of their sweeter times together were my absolute favorite.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I both laughed and cried while reading this story. Roxanne St. Claire pulls all the emotions from me when reading or listening to her books.
