NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) November 20, 2011
‘Tis the season for Christmas, family, and football. Author Candis Terry combines all three in the second e-original in her fun and sexy series from Avon Impulse.
In ANY GIVEN CHRISTMAS (Avon Impulse; on sale November 22, 2011; 9780062105233; $3.99; e-book), Terry revisits the small town of Deer Lick, Montanta and the Silverthorne family whose mother refuses to stop interfering in their lives—even from beyond the grave.
When an injury dashes NFL Quarterback Dean Silverthorne’s Super Bowl dreams, he heads back to Deer Lick 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.
On only her second novel, Terry has already made fans in high places, like New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson who said of Terry’s first novel, Second Chance at the Sugar Shack, “Candis Terry writes with humor and heart and puts a unique twist on this tale of second chances at first love.”
As Avon editor Amanda Bergeron says, Terry “has a knack for tugging on the heartstrings and making you laugh out loud, and I always feel like I could sit down for a beer or a cup of tea with one of her characters. If you are looking for something to curl up with, this is it!”
