Nathaniel “Nate” Ivory is a party-boy billionaire from a famous family. The media knows him best as “Naughty Nate” because scandals are nothing new to him and the Ivorys. He wants to put his wild, bad-boy ways behind him and prove to his grandfather, the family’s strict patriarch, his true worth. The unexpected news of his fatherhood status threatens to skew his attempt.


Liza Lemanski works at the County Clerk’s office. She knows her way around legal documents, able to spot a phony by a glance. All Liza wants is to adopt her deceased friend’s four-year-old; however, she needs the father to sign away his rights. But, Liza learns that the relationship her friend alluded to was fabricated.

At the start of the trilogy, I was on the fence about Nate. I did not have much on his personality, unlike his two friends, to draw an opinion. Book two gave a bit more insight, but not enough to reel me in. It did succeed in making me curious to learn how he got that scandalous reputation as a celebrity bad boy.

SCANDAL ON THE SAND delves deeper into Nate, answering all that I wondered about the man. In the beginning of the book, he came off as a jerk in his interaction with Liza. Yet, as I got deeper into the book, my opinion changed. Nate redeems himself as he grew and changed from the party-boy of his reputation.

I liked Liza since her introduction in SEDUCTION ON THE SAND. And the fact that she was no way impressed with Nate’s celebrity status or his money made her a fast favorite heroine. She continued to interest me with her pluckiness and determination. She is a perfect fit for Nate.

SEDUCTION ON THE SAND is a charming conclusion to THE BILLIONAIRES OF BAREFOOT BAY trilogy. The story is light-hearted goodness. It was nice to reacquaint with Tessa and Ian again. These spin offs always lend a deeper view into past books’ hero and heroine’s happily ever after.
