Sweet Texas Series #3
By: Candis Terry
Releasing June 24th, 2014


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?


“Obviously, in a town this size, you’ve realized I’m not from around here.” Her head tilted as she studied him once more. “I’m looking for a place to have breakfast in the morning.”

“Since I’m guessing you’re not going to follow up with ‘your place or mine,’ it’s just your luck I’m born and raised in this area.”

As she took a quick sip of beer, he leaned an elbow on the bar and did a visual slow ride down her body just to keep things even. “I’ve got everything you need.”

Her lips parted, and her tongue darted out to swipe away a drop of ale. “I’ll bet you do.”

The air between them shifted into the hot-and-heavy zone before he realized he was getting mixed signals. Her words were flirty. Her long hot gazes definitely showed interest. But something deep in those smoky eyes said she wasn’t a hundred percent on board. And since he’d been brought up to always wait for an invitation, he wasn’t quite sure which way to rock this … encounter.

“Nothing finer,” he said.
She laughed. “And you’re confident, too.”

He sipped his beer and watched her over the lip of the bottle. When he set the bottle down, he clarified, “Bud’s Nothing Finer Diner. Best place in Sweet for breakfast. They serve up a killer 
fresh strawberry banana French toast with whipped cream that’ll make you want to lick the plate clean.”

“Sounds like you’ve enjoyed that once or twice.”

“Consider me an expert licker.”

She grinned. “Are we talking about breakfast?”

“I don’t know.” He grinned back. “Are we?”
