Sydney Thomas may be the newest Rodeo Queen on the circuit, but she's more than just a pretty face and fabulous horseback rider. If only her new boss could see it! But the frustrating, bossy, drop-dead gorgeous man seems bent on pushing her away every chance he gets. Scott Chandler learned at an early age that he needed to "cowboy up" and take care of his family. The one time he let his guard down, his heart got trampled, and he's not about to let that happen again. He knows Sydney's type: rodeo queens who hide their manipulative ways behind good looks, tight jeans, and glittery tiaras. But just as Scott and Sydney are finally realizing there might be more to their fiery relationship than scorching kisses and passionate nights, secrets from their pasts come back to haunt them. Will the cowboy and the Rodeo Queen ever be able to ride off into the sunset together?

Author Candis Terry on Writing Intimate Moments--and it isn't smut

I am thrilled to have author Candis Terry stop by today at Love. Life. Read. Two of the biggest misconceptions of romance novels are they are all the same and filled cover-to-cover with smut. As Candis tells us, there is always more to the story... Welcome Candis! Thank you so much for having me here today! To get things started, let me just say . . . No, I don’t write smut.. I’m often asked (mostly by people who don’t read romance) what it’s like to write sex scenes. Do I do my own “research?” Aren’t I embarrassed to have people read such . . . smut? Oddly enough, this last question is often asked by men. Really guys? You don’t like sex? Hmmm. So after I pull in my claws and bite my tongue to the point of looking vampirish, I respond calmly and hopefully intellectually. But there are...

Spotlight: "Sweet Surprise" + Excerpt!

WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG, CANDIS! :)  Candis Terry was born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California and now makes her home on an Idaho farm.

NaNoWriMo Day 9 – Falling further behind

Day 9 – I feel like this is getting more dramatic with each day that passes, like I should have a snooty British accent read my posts. Or perhaps begin with “Captain’s log – Day 9.” Trust me, this is nothing that dramatic. Yesterday, after putting up my blog post, I decided to do another […]
