My latest release is the same book with two titles: Cinderella and the Tycoon Next Door (One Year To Wed) in North America and Canada; and Surprise Proposal, Outback Inheritance (Wed in the Outback) in Australia and Zealand. The reason for the different titles? Different markets with different expectations!

My book is book three in a four-book linked series about four sisters who all have to marry within a year to claim their inheritance from their late father. Each book starts with the reading of the will, seen from the different perspectives of the four very different sisters.  My sister, Ana, is the secret sister the other three didn’t know existed. When Anna needs help to fulfil the must-marry condition of the will, her best friend Connor steps up for a fake marriage. But can they stay “just friends”?

At an Australian romance writer’s conference, fellow Aussies Michelle Douglas, Ally Blake and I decided we’d like to create a series. We invited UK author to join us. Fortunately, our editors loved our story ideas! We had such fun writing the series—and although each book is a complete story, I hope you’ll enjoy reading all four books and seeing the sisters’ stories unfold. Book One, Secretly Married to a Prince by Ally Blake. Book Two, Reluctant Bride’s Baby Bombshell by Rachael Stewart.  Book Three, Cinderella and the Tycoon Next Door by Kandy Shepherd. Book Four, Claiming His Billion-Dollar Bride by Michelle Douglas.

I hope you enjoy my website. It’s always a thrill to hear from readers so please email me or chat with me on Twitter or Facebook, or check out my pics on Instagram.  ~ Kandy

Latest Release

Cinderella and the Tycoon Next Door

The key to Cinderella’s inheritance…

When Anastasia finds herself in need of a husband, she turns to her best friend, millionaire tycoon Connor. She’s always carried a torch for the guy from next door, but anything romantic is completely off-limits. The relationship might be faux, but once she’s wearing Connor’s ring, Ana’s very real desire for him becomes impossible to hide any longer… Especially when his “I do” kiss feels anything but fake!
