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,

I Love My New Book Cover!

I honestly don’t know how I’ve gotten so lucky, but I have the best book covers! This is the cover for my next book in the Sunshine Creek Vineyard series (available February 2017).

The story is a super fun one with a hero hellbent on never crossing the line between boss and employee, and a heroine who will do anything she can to break him from the stuffy life he’s chained himself to and show him a little fun. It involves a California coast road trip, Fireball shooters, karaoke, and dancing in the rain. I hope you’ll check it out.
