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?
Sweet Texas Series #3

“I thought you were assigned to show me around,” she said. “So how about we get to it?”
He studied her for a moment. Those incredible eyes moved down her body as if recording her assets and deficits for his own personal gain.
“Ah,” he said as though he’d discovered a box of treasures. “I get it now.”
“You get what, exactly?” Her shoulders came up as she tried to make herself look big and bad though she didn’t know why other than she didn’t like his tone.
“You know, it’s not fair that you women look like that and only play for the other team.”
“Look like what?”
“A man’s walking sexual fantasy.”
She looked like a man’s walking sexual fantasy?
“Who says I play for the other team?”
“Come on.” He shook his head. “It’s obvious you don’t like men. Starting with the pathetic name you gave your dog and ending with the way you ran out last night.”
“For your information …” She stuck a finger in his chest. “I love men. Just not players who are too pretty for their own good and assume every woman around will fall at their cowboy boots.”
“See. There you go again,” he said. “Men aren’t pretty.”
“Looked in the mirror lately?”
His surprised expression nearly made her laugh.
“And I noticed you didn’t bother to deny the player part,” she added.
“I just have a fine appreciation of women.”
“Uh-huh.” She patted that amazing chest and seemed to have some trouble removing her hand from the skin-warmed cotton. “You keep telling yourself that, bucko.”
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.
