Book review: Seduction on the Sand (The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay #2) by Roxanne St. Claire
Like everything in his life, becoming a billionaire was easy for Elliott Becker. He bought some land in Massachusetts and discovered he sat on two billion dollars worth of rare Goshen stone. Lucky, charming, and blessed with every gift, Elliott expects his simple purchase of property in Barefoot Bay will go the way everything does for him in life...easy. Until he meets the woman who currently owns that land and suddenly everything is...hard.
Frankie Cardinale’s fondest memories took place on the tiny goat farm owned and run by her “Nonno” in the heart of Barefoot Bay. As a child, the farm and its precious residents were a refuge for her after her parents died and her grandfather taught her all about “the sweet life” of raising goats. While she held her Nonno in her arms on his deathbed, she promised his land would never leave their family and that she would continue his legacy. Nothing—not even a sexy, playful, intoxicating billionaire who always gets his way—will convince her to break that promise.
Except Elliott Becker is a man who always gets what he wants even if that means a little seduction and double-crossing of a humble goatherd. But will his lucky streak hold long enough to keep him from making the biggest mistake of his life? Because all the money in the world can’t buy him what he really wants the most...Frankie's love

Ah yes! The second installment novella of the Billionaires of Barefoot Bay! Elliott Becker is one of those guys that everything comes easy for. He had no trouble getting his billionaire status. When he bought a piece of land and found that what was in the ground was worth way more than the land itself. Now Elliott is part of a group of billionaire men who invest and build stuff and their latest idea is a baseball team and a ballpark that involves some land they desperately need for it all to work. Unfortunately that land belongs to one Frankie Cardinale. Frankie isn't budging. Her grandfather told her the land was hers and since he had no will is waiting for the courts. He was a goat farmer and had a vision of what the land should be and Frankie intends to make that happen no matter what. What Elliott hadn't counted on when he came to find Frankie was was that Frankie was a woman not a man as he thought and, he's attracted to her. Something he can't seem to help but what will win out? His need to have that land, when he gets into something dirty to get it from her or Frankie and what she could be to him? Roxanne St Claire gives us another winner! The mix of billionaire playboy and the goat woman is fun and interesting with a big surprise in the end. It was fun to watch Elliott fall and fight it on the way but Frankie is just to much for his heart to resist. Awesome fast read! Can't wait for the third and last in this trilogy next month.
