A Better Man


In Candis Terrys first novel in her Sunshine Creek Vineyard series, the handsome Kincade brothers convene to rescue their legacybut the last thing they expect to find is love.

Hockey star Jordan Kincade wasted no time ditching Sunshine Valley and everyone who mattered for a career in the NHL—a truth Jordan confronts when his parents’ deaths bring him home. Now he’s back to make amends, which begins with keeping his younger sister from flunking out of school. It’s just his luck that the one person who can help is the girl whose heart he broke years ago.

Lucy Diamond has racked up a number of monumental mistakes in her life, the first involving a certain blue-eyed charmer. She has no intention of falling for Jordan Kincade again, but when he shows up asking her to help one of her students, Lucy just can’t say no. Worse, the longer he’s back, the more she sees how much he’s changed. And so when a blistering kiss turns to more, she can’t help but wonder if her heart will be crushed again . . . or if she’ll discover true love with a better man.




I’m so happy you dropped by the little corner of my world that makes me dream, laugh, sigh, and is the very heart of who I am. So grab a seat (or a barstool if you’re so inclined) and have a look around my website. It’s loaded with book excerpts, and playlists, and of course, recipes. Hard to write a series of books called The Sugar Shack novels without a little something sweet on the side. And please stop back by in the future.

Happily yours,

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Please bear with me a moment while I tell you why I’ve been inspired to write so many romance novels starring military heroes.

The simple answer is because I live in a military town where I’m lucky enough to regularly cross paths with the brave members of the Idaho Army National Guard at Gowen Field and Mountain Home Air Force Base. The more composite answer is because I see THEM. I see their spirit, their families, the way they interact with their wives, husbands, children, and community. I see the courage it takes for them to pack up their gear and go fight a war in another country thousands of miles away from the ones they love. I see what it’s like for their families to stay at home, keeping the home fires burning, and praying that their loved one will return safely.

I have many friends and family members, including my own father, who have made sacrifices and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country. And I’ve seen what it’s like when our soldiers come home broken in body and spirit. Living in a military town, I’m reminded daily of the bravery and the honor code these men and women live by every hour of every day. They make me so proud to be an American. So how could I not be inspired to write stories with military heroes and give them a happily every after?

So today and every day, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you and Happy Veteran’s Day to all the men and women in all the branches of our military. And on a personal note, thank you for all the A-10 and F-15 flyovers over my house! Nothing short of exhilarating. Keep them coming!

God bless.
