When widower Mark Solomon arrives in Barefoot Bay for his 30th high school reunion, he’s not quite prepared for the onslaught of memories or the attention from interested single women who’ve gathered for the annual event on the beach.  He’s ready to ditch the whole thing and resume his life as an adventure-seeking world traveler until he discovers a woman sobbing on his doorstep…and has an idea.

By her own admission, advertising copywriter Emma DeWitt is jaded, jilted, and jobless,  but she goes over the edge when she learns that the resort villa that was supposed to be the site of her romantic honeymoon is occupied by a single man.  But when the sexy silver fox who’s staying in the villa surprises her with an irresistible offer to pose as his fake fiancée, Emma sees a way to have her week in paradise and begin healing her broken heart.

Mark believes every person has only one soulmate…and he’s met, married, and buried his.  Emma believes that love is a marketing concept created to sell fairy tales and expensive weddings. What if they are both wrong…and completely right for each other?

    Roxanne, you had me at the dedication and didn't let up. Refreshing to read a romance with the main characters over 40. Great premise and so so much more than a fake fiancé or second chance book. S a Ways I love how other barefoot hay folks show up in the story. Thanks so much for this story. Can't wait to read the rest.

    What a great writer! Funny and smart. I really appreciate a believable story of couples who aren't in their twenties. Can't wait for more of Timeless stories.

Well written, characters that you gravitate to, relate to, hold on to, & keep forever cause you see a little of yourself in each character and that makes this book a keeper. Can't wait to to immerse myself in the other books. Thank you Roxanne 😍

    First time reading this author, but won't be the last. An extremely well written story, with identifiable characters. Witty, romantic, heartbreaking, and satisfying. I really enjoyed reading this book.
  • I wish there were more stars to rate these books!

  • Love this Bittersweet Romance

    By BBQ griller
    I loved this book! It is one of my favorites set in Barefoot Bay. Barefoot at Sunset is a great story, filled with amazing characters and a bittersweet romance. The story is about Mark Solomon, a widower in town for the Mimosa High School all class reunion and Emma DeWitt, a jilted and unemployed ad copywriter. Emma was supposed to to stay in the villa that Mark is renting for her honeymoon. She arrives to find out that the reservation for the villa was cancelled. She just wanted to escape and there are no rooms left as Casa Blanca because of the class reunion. Mark develops a plan, Emma will pretend to be his fake fiancée and he'll let her stay in the villa for the week. Mark feels that he already met and marries his once in a lifetime soul mate. His wife, Julia, was his high school sweetheart, and she died sixteen years ago and this is his first trip back since her funeral. He is not interested in finding a new wife. He wants Emma to be his fake fiancée to avoid any talk about Julia or any sympathy over her death. The love story has its ups and downs. One of my favorite moments is when their driver talks about moving to Florida from Pittsburgh to avoid the winter weather, a nod to Rocki's own past. Truly enjoyed falling in love with Mark and Emma.
