Changing temperature with time

Is the following statement true sometimes, always or never (justify your answer)? When
two objects (initially at the same temperature and with the same mass) are placed on a hot
surface, the object with the lower heat capacity will increase in temperature faster.

My thought is that some objects may be worse conductors of heat so they'll take longer to heat up even if they require the same or less energy.

What is the definition of "hear capacity"? You might also want to check "thermal conductivity".
