Feature and Giveaway: Something Sweeter by Candis Terry

The men in Texas are hard to resist . . . Seattle event planner Allison Lane is an expert at delivering the perfect wedding—even if she might not exactly believe in the whole "'til death do us part" thing. When her father decides to tie the knot with a woman he barely knows, Allison heads to Sweet, Texas, to make sure his new honey is the real deal. What she didn't expect to find at the local honky-tonk was a sexy Southern man as bent on charming her pants off as he is on blowing her "true love doesn't exist" theory all to hell. And they always promise . . .

Veterinarian, former Marine, and Sweet's favorite playboy Jesse Wilder takes one look at Allison and knows she's a handful of trouble he can't deny. But even after a sizzling kiss and obvious mutual attraction, it seems Allison has no such problem. When Jesse uncovers her sweet side, can he crush his playboy image, melt her cynical heart, and change her mind about taking a trip down the aisle?

Check out the Sweet Texas series:

“Are you against your father’s marrying my mother? Or just marriage in general?”

“I’m not necessarily against my father’s marrying your mother. I just want to make sure it’s the right thing for him.”


“As for marriage in general …” She shrugged. “The jury’s still out.”

“That’s pretty pessimistic.”

“Don’t get me wrong. I think most people love the idea of the whole being-together-forever thing. They love the attention, the celebration, the lavish gifts. What comes after the honeymoon is when they seem to lose interest.”

“So basically, it’s safe to say you’re against marriage,” he said. Most people could hide their true feelings behind a mask of indifference. Allison’s face was far too expressive to have that gift.

“Just not a real big believer that two specific people are destined to be together for the rest of their lives.”

“Excuse me?” He couldn’t believe what he’d just heard. “Aren’t you a wedding planner?”

“I’m an event planner.”

“Who plans weddings.”


“And yet you don’t believe in marriage.”

“Half end in divorce. So you can’t say that it’s me who doesn’t believe when it appears that most of those who say “I do” don’t believe. Or maybe they just don’t have what it takes to make it for the long haul. I think it’s more about the longevity of a relationship that’s questionable than a legal document.”

“So what you’re saying is you don’t believe in true love,” he said.

“I’m highly suspicious that it exists.”

“Wow.” He leaned back in his chair. “It must be awful to walk around with so much cynicism.”

“I’m not by nature a negative person.”

“Aren’t you?”

“No. I’m a realist.”

“Darlin’, you’re something. I just haven’t figured out what.”

Candis Terry was born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California and now makes her home on an Idaho farm. She’s experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood recording studio to chasing down wayward steers. Only one thing has remained the same: her passion for writing stories about relationships, the push and pull in the search for love, and the security one finds in their own happily ever after.
