Waiting on Wednesday: Barefoot in Lace by Roxanne St. Claire

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I absolutely love Roxanne St. Claire's world of Barefoot Bay, which is why my WOW pick this week is Barefoot in Lace. I fell in love with Gussie in the previous Barefoot Bay Brides story, and I simply cannot wait to learn more about her.

If you're looking for a great beach read (whether you're relaxing in the sand or simply want to pretend you are), I recommend any of the books in the series. Barefoot in Lace is the second book in the Barefoot Bay Brides trilogy (after one of mt favorite books of the year, Barefoot in White), but it's the ninth story set in Barefoot Bay. As I've been reading the series as a whole out of order, I'm sure readers can jump in anywhere.

Barefoot in Lace Cover Title: Barefoot in Lace
Series: Barefoot Bay Brides, Book 2
Author: Roxanne St. Claire
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: South Street Publishing
Release Date: September 12, 2014

Book Description (from Amazon):

Kick off your shoes and fall in love again in with the Barefoot Bay Brides! Destination wedding planner Gussie McBain needs a man...specifically, a wedding photographer. Just her luck that the shutterbug she runs into is more used to snapping pictures of glamorous models in couture gowns than brides in white lace. But Gussie's never been one to let bad odds stop her from a good gamble, so she asks for a favor she never dreams superstar TJ DeMille will actually grant.

Tom DeMille lives his life exactly as he pleases--always alone. In fact, he’s got that motto tattooed in Greek on his arm. But when Tom is suddenly saddled with guardianship of his twelve-year-old niece, he'll lose more than his freedom if he can't figure out how to take care of her. Then an alluring young woman with pink hair and a sassy mouth shows up at his door, and he agrees to do the unthinkable...photograph a wedding in exchange for some help with his niece.

As they work together, Tom begins to take down the walls Gussie has erected around herself to discover a truly beautiful and tender woman he knows he could love. But will his own heartache and refusal to lay down roots prevent him from giving Gussie the family life she craves...or could she be the one woman who can finally break his vow of solitude?

This book (and series) sound so cute! I'm adding it to my goodreads list :)

Also, love your blog. I'm on a romance kick, so I'm looking for new titles to read.
