Dean Silverthorne's mother may be dead, but she still has matchmaking to do.

When an injury dashes NFL Quarterback Dean Silverthorne's Super Bowl dreams, he heads back to Deer Lick, Montana with a chip on his wounded shoulder, more determined than ever to get back in the game. He loves his kooky family, but this trip home is going to be a very brief Christmas visit.

His game plan doesn't include an instant attraction to Emma Hart, a feisty kindergarten teacher who seems to be the only person in Deer Lick not interested in the hometown hero. Or his dearly departed mom popping up with mistletoe in hand and meddling on the mind. Now Dean can't help but wonder if there's more to love than life between the goal posts.

About Candis Terry

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.

Our customer reviews

Any Given Christmas is the second 'Sugar Shack' novel by Candis Terry and just as sweet as the first. With Kate Silverthorne happily married the author turns her attention to Kate's older brother, NFL Quarterback, Dean. He is home in Deer Lick for Christmas, sidelined from the game he loves due to a nasty shoulder injury but planning to get back on the football field just as soon as he heals. His enforced rest period is enlivened when he meets kindergarten teacher Emma, who is unusually resistant to his many charms. Despite Emma's disdain, Dean is intrigued by the woman and determined to win her over, encouraged by his dearly departed mother who continues to have a presence in the lives of her children despite being, well, dead. I enjoyed this romance that has quite a bit of heat as well as a charming courtship. The pairing of seeming opposites - celebrity playboy, footballer Dean and straight-laced school teacher Emma - is a common trope but Terry ensures her protagonists are well rounded personalities. I enjoyed learning more about the characters as they opened up to one another about their pasts as well as their dreams for the future. Of course the relationship has it's missteps and fumbles but eventually things work out with a satisfying happily ever after. Despite the title this isn't a Christmas themed romance but it does have a little seasonal flavour and is sure to leave you in a cheery mood. Any Given Christmas can be read as a stand alone but is a sweet follow up to Second Chance at the Sugar Shack. Be quick and grab this title for free in electronic format at Amazonshow more
