Home Sweet Home


A shorter version of this story previously appeared in the For Love and Honor anthology.
Before Candis Terry’s wild Wilder brothers met their matches, a soldier gets a homecoming in Sweet, Texas.

He’s given up …

Army Ranger Lieutenant Aiden Marshall fought in some of the most hellish corners on earth and survived. Those closest to him, did not. When he returns home to Sweet, Texas, he believes he’s broken and has lost everything-including his soul. The only fair thing he can do to the woman who’s patiently waited for him to come home is tell her to move on with her life-without him.

… but she never will

Sassy waitress Paige Walker has no intention of walking away from the man of her dreams. He gave his all for his country and served with honor. Now it’s time to pull him from the darkness and give him hope. With a heap of love, the help of the entire town, and a tail-wagging companion, Paige makes sure her hero knows there’s no place like home sweet home.

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,

I’m very excited about this book because it gave me a chance to go back and revisit the very first book of my Sweet, Texas series and add (almost 100 pages) to Aiden, Paige, and the lovable Rennie’s story.

I’m even more excited because ALL PROCEEDS OF THIS NOVELLA WILL GO TO ANIMAL RESCUE! When I started looking into rescue organizations in my area I was floored by the amount of animals in need. I hope you’ll help me help them, not only by purchasing Home Sweet Home (ebook is only $1.99) but that you’ll spread the word to other animal lovers about this charity fundraiser. The print book ($3.99) will be available May 26. I will make sure to post pictures of me giving the rescue organizations a (hopefully) nice big check.

Thank you for you support!
