Barefoot with a Bodyguard by Roxanne St. Claire




Synopsis via RoxanneStClaire.com:

After receiving death threats, Kate Kingston hopes to appease her father by taking a month-long vacation in a resort, hoping for silence, security, and solitude while she studies for the bar. But he last thing she expects or wants when she arrives in Barefoot Bay is a brooding, bruising, muscle-bound Russian bodyguard breathing down her neck. Especially since everything about him sparks sensations that have her thinking about his body far more than her books.

Alec Petrov is running for his life and protecting a young attorney-to-be while pretending to be her husband is not a bad way to live in hiding. But something about the beautiful law student brings out a side of Alec that he never knew he had and doesn't know how to handle. While he teaches Kate how to protect herself, she teaches him how to take down walls to discover that even a man trained to kill can have a tender side.

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. 

Miss St. Claire has done it again! She has combined the perfect amount of suspense, sun, sand, romance, and personal angst to create a story that will carry you away! 
Kate and Alec find themselves in the need of witness protection, but don't really qualify in the eyes of the government. But that turns out to be great for them. Gabe Rossi has "opened up" for business providing private witness protection for people who are in need.
What can a MMA trainer and a Yale graduate have in common? Well, they both need to drop off the grid to protect their lives. They become the perfect cover for each other: pretend to be husband and wife on their honeymoon at a posh resort in Florida. What better place for romance than sun and sand?
But of course it can't be all sunshine and roses-that would be boring. And this story is FAR from boring. Miss St. Claire develops strong characters that work their way through the fact that they have realized they are truly vulnerable. But as they journey together, they learn that in their vulnerabilities, together they are strong.
Oh and the extra fun lies in the "side" characters. You will have no choice but to fall in love with Nino and Poppy!
Miss St, Claire is an extremely talented writer who knows how to take her readers along with her to a world where romance is the norm, and love can conquer all!
