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,

RT16 Tote1

One of the best things about going to any writer’s conference is bringing home books and swag. I recently attended the RT Convention in Las Vegas and came home with a slew of goodies!

Over the next few weeks I will be giving away tote bags filled with books (some even autographed) and swag and I will be giving away all of them right here on my website, so if you haven’t signed up for my email newsletter, I encourage you to do so for future notifications. I will no longer be using Facebook to give away items unless it is through a release day party event page.

To enter RT16 Tote Bag Giveaway #1 (zippered red RT tote bag filled with 6 books, audio book, tool kit, shot glass, coaster, pens, notepads & more) please leave a comment telling me whether you read mostly ebooks or print books and why.

Winner will be randomly selected and announced on Friday, May 6 sometime before midnight (mountain time). I will contact the winner via email. If I do not receive a response from the winner by Sunday, May 8 at midnight, prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be randomly selected.
