Growing up on a ranch in West Texas, Stacey Richards was a bit too wild for her aging grandfather to handle. In desperation, he sent her away to a finishing school for the wayward daughters of the well-to-do. Eleven years later, Stacey is back in Texas, just in time for her grandfather’s funeral and the reading of the will. She expects to inherit the land she grew up on. Standing in her way is Ben Oakes, the man she holds responsible for her grandfather’s decision to send her away—and the man she has loved since her wild teens.
Her years at an exclusive boarding school may have added an icy layer of polish and poise but underneath she’s still a wildcat who will fight tooth and nail to keep what’s hers, even if she has to go through Ben to do it.
“Ms. Schuler has a sure touch with emotional responses that make all of her books very special reading.” Romantic Times

Meet the Author
Candace Schuler is a writer with a multiple personalities. In her 30+ year career, she has written software user guides, various types of instruction manuals, marketing collateral, grant proposals, case statements, case studies, business profiles, newsletters, press releases, white papers, speeches, scripts, short stories, a cookbook—and 26 (to date) romance novels.
Candace credits her husband Joe and her love of travel with starting her career as a romance writer. It was his comments on a letter describing a trip to New Orleans that prompted her to try writing romance fiction.
She wrote her first novel Desire’s Child by hand on 12 yellow legal pads. It was published by Harlequin Books in September, 1984 (after she typed it into a computer, of course). Her second book A Cherished Account was published by New American Library under the pen name Jeanette Darwin just one month later. She is also published under the name Candace Spencer.
Her books have appeared on the B. Dalton’s and Waldenbooks bestseller lists and have twice been nominated by the Romance Writers of America for a RITA award in the Best Short Contemporary Romance category—in 1996 for Passion and Scandal and in 2003 for Good Time Girl. Good Time Girl also received the 2003 Scarlett Letter Award, presented by the Tampa Bay Romance Writers for excellence in sensual romance writing. Candace’s books have also received three Reviewers’ Choice Awards from Romantic Times magazine. In 1992, she was awarded the Career Achievement Award as Series Story Teller of the Year by RT.
Because romance is truly universal, most of her books have been published in at least 20 languages, including Mandarin, Japanese, Greek, and most recently, Russian.
She is currently in the process of digitizing her backlist for e-book publication.
