Life isn’t always sweet, even for girls called Candy.

Candice Parker’s life has never been easy. Plagued by losses and setbacks, each day is a struggle for the petite brunette and her young son. When fireman Gary enters her world, he is one mistake she refuses to make; but after tragedy strikes, she may not have a choice.

Gerald Ford has never been what anyone would call settled. Always keeping things simple, he lived a fast and furious lifestyle, with no intentions of slowing down. However, when he inherits his family’s ancestral mansion on his thirtieth birthday, he considers the possibility that it’s time for a change.

Could this complicated young woman be his Christmas Candy?




Candy has gotten the short end of the stick ever since her father was killed in the line of duty. Her mother became an alcoholic and she got pregnant at 15 and her son has special needs. Because of these events she's sworn off men. We have Gary who just turned the big 30 and wants to settle down. You guessed it with Candy. Candy and Gary got off to a very rocky start and I didn't like her at all. She was very rude, bitchy and nasty to Gary. She even accused him of setting her apartment on fire since he was a fireman and this would be a way for them to date. Um, you need to get over yourself sweetie. After that part I wanted to check out but I kept on truckin'! I really liked Gary but it was hard for me to connect to the story when you can't stand the heroine. I wanted to love this story since it was a Christmas themed story but it didn't put me in the holiday spirit and there wasn't a lot of romance either. The narrator in this book was also a huge turnoff for me as well. I wanted this book to work for me and sadly it just didn't.

samantha.jpgAnyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…
