Chasing a dream of love 

The pursuit of love has always been high on Preston Chase’s priority list. But the video game developer has yet to find the soul mate he craves. His sister’s best friend—artist and studio owner Blythe Ventura—is a world away from the shallow glam girls who’ve thrown themselves at him. With her creative spirit and passionate commitment, she’s the ideal candidate for his Winter Wonderland project. Too bad she doesn’t seem interested in being the one to win his heart.

After a string of dating disasters, Blythe isn’t ready to believe in a romantic relationship with Preston. Until their work giving sick children hope and joy for Christmas brings them together—and reveals a very different side of the notorious millionaire playboy. All she has to do is trust in the feelings Preston is awakening and this just might be the year that they both find the happy holiday ending they’ve been searching for…

COOKING UP LOVE

What happens when a suave, handsome chef meets a cute, sassy food critic?

When Shelbi Arrington accepts a position as a food critic in the hopes of burying her medical career and foregoing her residency, the last thing she’s searching for is love. However, that’s just what the doctor ordered especially when she lays eyes on the handsome chef, Justin Richardson. While sorting out her secret conflict of continuing her medical career, she falls for his mouth-watering charm, leaving her hungry for anything he has to offer.

Justin is leery of doctors because a doctor’s negligence caused his mother’s death when he was twelve. He has put his focus and energy into his restaurant, which had been a dream he and his mother shared. Justin is immediately smitten by the cute, sassy food critic that has him cooking up different ways to please her appetite. But when things start to heat up, Shelbi learns of a shocking revelation that could extinguish the flame of their relationship. Will Justin be able to forget his pain and commit to the woman who has stolen his heart?

THE GAME OF SEDUCTION

Dr. Bria Arrington has had her heart broken by one bad boy playboy and doesn’t want to travel down that road again. However, she finds herself attracted to her best friend, self-proclaimed bachelor, Rasheed Vincent. After a passionate kiss leaves them desiring more, seducing each other is the only cure.

A retired basketball player, Rasheed is a player on and off the court. When a woman gets too close, he bounces to the next one. But the condition he’s in makes him want a permanent dose of Bria’s love, and he’s ready for the shot. She knows falling in love with Rasheed is a prescription for trouble, yet she’s willing to risk it. But can she trust him with her heart?

ONLY ONE FOR ME

Part One
Cannon Arrington has pushed aside a social life to dedicate his time to medical school, extracurricular activities, and helping others … that is, until he lays his eyes on the angelic face of Yasmine Dubose. For Cannon, meeting her was a breath of fresh air. Something about the bubbly, sexy teacher makes him realize he needs to stop and smell the roses.

Yasmine has had a crush on Cannon since high school, but he’d never noticed the nerdy freshman. Now she’s blossomed into a woman who’s full of life. She knows Cannon’s drive for success is important to him, but she fears he’ll become even more of a workaholic than her father, who died when she was a child.

Will Cannon settle down and learn how to balance his career and love life, or will he lose the simply amazing woman who has stolen his heart?

Part Two
Dr. Cannon Arrington’s mission is to help people in need. But when his ex fiancée re enters his life after twelve years, he has a new mission. Never let her get away again.

Yasmine Dubose never stopped loving Cannon. Instead, she learned to live without him, guarding her heart in the process. However, when they are brought together to plan a wedding for their best friends, Yasmine is faced with the challenge of following her heart this time around or risk losing the only man she’s ever loved.

The Bennett Triplets are on Sale and More!

Hello romance readers!

I hope you’re all well and enjoying the fall weather. I’m excited to announce that all three novellas in the Bennett Triplets Series are on sale for 99 cents each for a limited time. So just in case you may have only read one or two of them, now you can read the ones you may have missed. And if you haven’t read any of them, this is the perfect time to fall in love with Cameron, Mason, and Harper. If you read them all, share with a friend that they’re on sale. I had a blast writing this series with my girls Sharon C. Cooper and Delaney Diamond and we hope you enjoyed reading them!

My novella, A Passionate Night, follows the life of the youngest and only female triplet, Harper Bennett as she falls in love with Hunter Arrington while trying to resist him every step of the way. But who can resist an Arrington!?! LOL!

Below is the blurb and buy links to A Passionate Night as well as links to Sharon and Delaney’s websites for the links to A Passionate Love and A Passionate Kiss.

Mixing business with pleasure leads to a passionate night …

Harper Bennett’s motto is work hard, play hard. Lately, she’s forgotten the latter and has focused her time as part-owner, along with her brothers, of the hottest nightclub in Atlanta. When an intriguing client enters, Harper forgoes her promise to never date a man that doesn’t live in the same city and she finds herself playing hard to get with Hunter Arrington. The passion that has ignited between them can’t be extinguished, and she dreads the day he has to leave.

Hunter travels the world because of his career and has no intentions of settling down until his eyes land on Harper Bennett. There’s something about the petite, sassy woman that he adores and makes him feel at home for the first time in years.  Now he’s faced with a life-changing decision and the thought of being without Harper isn’t an option.

Has a wedding planner with a commitment phobia finally found the man to make her fall head over heels in love?

Reagan Richardson loves planning extravagant, classy weddings as the head planner of Precious Moments Events.

Blake knows all about Reagan’s fear of commitment but that doesn’t stop him from pursuing the ravishing beauty.

New Release: When I Fell for You

Dear romance readers,

I’m so excited that the release day for When I Fell for You (Precious Moments #2) is finally here. I feel like it took me forever to write this book and if you read my writing update last month, you know why. I can’t wait for you to meet and hopefully fall in love like I did with Reagan and Blake. It’s an Arrington Family spin-off so you’ll catch up with a few of them. I had to do a lot of extra research including a medical procedure, glassblowing, yoga, and salsa dancing. I think some days I watched more salsa and yoga videos on YouTube than I wrote. LOL! But its finally here and I hope you enjoy it!

Sincerely,

Candace

PS. If you’re in the path of Hurricane Harvey, please stay safe. I’ll be praying and thinking about my Texas readers, author friends, and my family members.

Writing Updates, Cover Reveals and More!

Dear Romance Readers!

I hope you’re all well and enjoying your summer. My summer vacation has officially ended. The teacher hubby is back at work and I’m ready for some cool weather!

I know a lot of you have emailed or messaged me on social media about the release date for When I Fell for You. At one point it was supposed to be late 2016 but after writing four books in a row with no in-between break, my brain was tired and I took a much needed two month writing sabbatical. However, when I started writing the book, I hated it, and deleted about 30,000 words but kept a few scenes. If I hated it that means you would’ve hated it as well. Now I’m in love with Reagan Richardson and Blake Harrison’s fun, flirty, sexy romance! It was supposed to be released in April, but was put on hold when my husband and I found out our beloved 12-year old Weimaraner, Muhammad Ali had cancer and only had a few months left to live. So I dropped everything and focused solely on him. If you know me, I love my dog like a child so the news hit really hard. Ali passed away in late May and while we miss him more than we thought was even possible, I know he’s still watching over us as he always did.

I started writing again soon after and sent When I Fell for You to my editor a few days ago. Finally. LOL! I plan on releasing it at the end of August, so the next time I send you an update it will be the release day! Yippie! I can’t wait for you to read Reagan and Blake’s love story. Unlike the first book in the series For the Love of You, which is a novella, (on sale for 99 cents. See the sidebar) When I Fell for You is a full-length novel. You’ll of course catch up with Zaria and Garrett as well as some of the Arringtons. Below is the blurb and the next two covers in the series. I adore them.

Thank you for being wonderful readers and for being patient!

Sincerely,

Candace
