More About the Author

Kandy Shepherd is an award-winning author of contemporary romance. She lives on a small farm in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia with her husband, daughter, and a menagerie of four-legged friends. Kandy believes in love-at-first-sight and real-life romance--they worked for her!

Kandy's newest heart-warming story for Harlequin Romance is FROM PARADISE TO...PREGNANT! Next is HIRED BY THE BROODING BILLIONAIRE to be published in August 2015.

Kandy's Dolphin Bay trilogy for Harlequin Romance is now complete--each book can be enjoyed separately but continuing characters all link to the Morgan family. THE SUMMER THEY NEVER FORGOT is the first (February 2014). It is followed by THE TYCOON AND THE WEDDING PLANNER (July 2014) and A DIAMOND IN HER STOCKING (December 2014).

As well as her titles published by both Harlequin and Berkley Sensation, Kandy is the author of the e-book romances THE CASTAWAY BRIDE (an Amazon best-seller) and SOMETHING ABOUT JOE; and the contemporary women's fiction title, REINVENTING ROSE.

REINVENTING ROSE, was inspired by her Kandy's years working as an editor in women's magazines, in particular the reader makeovers she enjoyed so much. Dumped, duped and divorced, 28-year-old Californian schoolteacher Rose Butler finds herself stranded in Sydney, Australia and decides she needs a "me makeover". Lucky for Rose, she makes three new friends who draw her into their circle of friendship and support and help her reinvent herself. She finds a new life--and a new man--but what happens when her old life beckons? REINVENTING ROSE is about love, friendship and the magic of a makeover.

SOMETHING ABOUT JOE is a heartwarming love story. The hero is hot, smart, great with kids, and he can cook--what's not to love about Joe Martin? But stressed-out executive and single mom, Allison Bradley, fights it all the way when she finds herself falling in love with her little boy's new nanny. Joe is one of Kandy's favorite heroes--he actually came to her in a dream!

Kandy's Amazon bestseller, THE CASTAWAY BRIDE, is an unashamedly escapist romance about a runaway bride who is shipwrecked on a tropical island with a sexy stranger. This story is a tad steamier than Kandy's charming dog-themed stories. There is a dog, the hero's black labrador--but he gets seasick and can't be on board the hero's yacht, so he never actually appears on the pages.

LOVE IS A FOUR-LEGGED WORD, Kandy's debut novel, is a romantic comedy set in San Francisco about a little dog who inherits a big fortune and the people he brings together.

Kandy's second book for Berkley Sensation, HOME IS WHERE THE BARK IS, is a tale of romance, mystery and dogs. It's a follow-on book from LOVE IS A FOUR-LEGGED WORD, and tells the story of Serena, the heroine's best friend in the first book. Brutus, the millionaire mutt, and Coco his beloved poodle mate, guest star. But Mack, a big sad-eyed mutt who is abandoned at Serena's doggy daycare Paws-A-While, is the doggy hero of the story. HOME IS WHERE THE BARK IS is a stand-alone story that can be enjoyed without reading the first book.

Cristy planned the perfect wedding, at a fancy island resort, gorgeous white wedding gown, and a rich husband to be. She finds herself running from it all - falls into the arms of Matt Slade and asks him to take her away off the island.

A runaway bride !

Shipwrecked with Hotty, sexy Matt Slade, Cristy finds herself day dreaming - lusting for him, he makes her pulse race, her heart flutter and tingles in places like never before. An attraction she has never felt , Matt brings out a yearning in Cristy she never existed.

Matt and Cristy explore the island, and eventually give in to desires they both can't deny, passionate and sensual just living for the moment. Matt is not who is says he is and Cristi not the gold digger Matt thinks she is.

A Love affair that brings about a passion and sparks within, but can their love survive outside the Island and moments and memories they have created?
Can they learn to trust their feelings - or move on to never know if love ever knew existed!

My Thoughts!!

Oh my !!

This books reminds me of my most Favorite movie ever *Blue Lagoon *, of course it is not!! But I couldn't help but relate my thoughts to a beautiful island, waterfalls, seafood at hand, and fresh fruit and nakedness and frolicking in the water. !

Yes it has all this... oh and hot romantic interludes !!!

Kandy has created a romantic story, that's jam packed filled with passion, love, and two souls who have never found true love. A smooth flowing story, with chapters that easily flow, a great cast of characters that I am sure you will fall in love with. An dialogue thats crisp and flowing.

Cristy and Matt`s chemistry was like a bonfire and a raging inferno!

Cristy is running away from her wedding when she runs right into Matt. He helps her escape, and then they are shipwrecked.
Sweet story, and the descriptions of the island made me want to go get stranded there immediately!

They have chemistry, but each have relationship baggage that causes them to be distrustful of the other.

A fun story with spicy scenes make this a great beach read.

Christy Walters, an American accountant working for a multinational in Australia, is about to marry her boss at a swanky Queensland island resort. This will secure her future and finish the task of distancing herself from her childhood, when she was raised by hippie parents and hated the lifestyle. But minutes before the ceremony, she catches her groom fooling around with her maid of honor (or whatever).

In shock and outrage, Christy hightails it out of there. She literally runs into Matt Slade, a mysterious yet compelling stranger. He helps her get away from her pursuing groom. Soon Christy and Matt are on a yacht headed out to sea. And into a storm that wrecks the boat and casts the two upon a desert island.

From there on, a most engaging romantic fantasy unfolds. Both characters have to deal with issues from their past that impair their ability to love.

Matt must make sense of his gorgeous yet puzzling companion. Is she a golddigger, intent on going through with the interrupted wedding once they're rescued? And Christy must figure out Matt. Is he just another beach bum, possibly a boat thief? Or someone else entirely?

Author Kandy Shepherd relates their story in a skillful manner. She captures well each detail of the Eden-like setting, each plot development, each emotional nuance as Christy and Matt's relationship grows. Surprises, ironies, and humorous incidents abound. And what a way the author has with love scenes! She runs the gamut from sweet to sizzling.

I especially appreciate the feeling of you-are-there, how easily it is for the reader to put herself in Christy's place. And how Ms. Shepherd makes the story fascinating even though most scenes involve only two characters.

I admit, this book was outside my comfort zone. The sex scenes were quite descriptive. I wasn't expecting that. My wife enjoyed the book, and I really liked the outside the box plot, but was uncomfortable with the repetitive sex scenes, but I'm and old goat. That aside, the writer has a great descriptive style and I really liked the characters. This one is destined for a Lifetime movie of the week.

The book was very steamy and exciting. It offered everything a girl could want, a hot guy, paradise, and romance. I loved it. I read it in one night. It is one of the best romance novels I have read in a while. This is also my first time reading Kandy as well. I will certainly look into her other books. You can not also beat the 99 cent Kindle price. Very good book and I would highly recommend.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are easy enough to get along with and of course the sex scenes are a bonus (damsel-in-distress + hunky male hero + deserted island = lots of sex right? The ending could have been a little less hurried, but heck, there are definitely worse buys for 99 cents

This was the first time for me reading Kandy Shepherd books. I found it fascinating! It kept you spellbound from start to finish. I can't wait to read more of her books.
