Saddles and Sin has a Playlist!

Saddles and Sin--and the naughtiness that is hero Robert "Bubba" Lawson"--has a sizzling country playlist!

Even sweet cowboys have a sinful side…

Robert Lawson—Bubba to his friends—is six feet, four inches of tall, dark, and handsome cowboy, with a panty-melting voice and a face made to launch a country music career. But when his family’s ranch hands go down with the flu, Robert cancels his high-profile auditions in Austin, and returns home to Lonesome Point to help out. Fortune and fame are all well and good, but family and friends come first. Besides, he’s ready to enjoy some off-the-clock time with his manager, a woman who has him dying to show her what a good man can do to a woman when he’s given permission to be bad.

Marisol Medina has been looking for her golden ticket since she became a country music manager. A scandal with one of her clients nearly destroyed her, but now she's close to launching an artist who will make her career. Robert Lawson has it all—talent, charisma, and a naughty side the flicks all of Marisol’s kinkier switches. But Robert is off limits. She refuses to mix business and pleasure, even if it will be hell resisting temptation while spending a week at the Lawson family ranch, doing her best to convince Robert to ditch the saddle and embrace his future as a star.

But as Marisol and Robert grow closer and the passion between them ignites, Marisol must decide if fear is stronger than love, or if a chance at forever is worth breaking all her rules.

Enjoy the music and get ready for the read September 16th!

HOT FOR YOU is out today!

Hot For You
A Summerville Novel
Fire and Icing Book 2

Too hot to handle…

Faith Miller has faith in two things—her surrogate firehouse family, and her own two hands—and she needs a man in her life like a fish needs a bicycle. Growing up watching her mom get used and discarded by one deadbeat boyfriend after another has left Faith jaded, and determined not to fall into the same trap. But when Mick Whitehouse moves back to Summerville, Faith’s happy, single life is turned upside down. The hunky carpenter is a far cry from the little boy she used to wrestle with on the playground in elementary school. Mick’s all grown up, tempting as sugar coated sin, and determined to seduce Faith into forgetting all her rules.

One kiss under the mistletoe and Mick Whitehouse knows that he wants Faith Miller. Bad. After years of lukewarm relationships with the wrong kind of girls, Mick is powerfully drawn to Summerville’s only female firefighter, and determined not to let her push him away. Beneath Faith’s tough exterior is a heart of gold, and the chemistry between them is four-alarm hot. But just as he convinces Summerville’s most confirmed bachelorette to take a chance on love, an old girlfriend waltzes into town and drops a bombshell in Mick’s lap.

As Faith and Mick come to terms with the shocking news, Faith must choose: let fear of repeating her mother’s mistakes send her running, or have faith in the man she’s come to love?

Melt with You
A Summerville Novel
Fire and Icing Book One

Some fires never burn out…

After ten years as America’s sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She’s opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she’ll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won’t even speak to her?

When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter’s Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won’t let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him…not that he intends to let her know it. He’ll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again.

But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start?


As Jake climbed up the wooden ladder, those memories flashed on his mental screen. Memories of Naomi in nothing but a bikini top and cut off shorts, swaying back and forth in the hammock while she read their summer reading assignment aloud and Jake puttered with his carving knife, whittling a piece in the chess set he was making her for her birthday. Memories of picnics and evenings spent telling ghost stories and nights spent in the bed they’d made, making love until eleven minutes to midnight, leaving themselves two minutes to get dressed, one to get down the tree to Jake’s truck, and seven to scoot across town to the Whitehouse’s place by Naomi’s curfew.
They were some of his best memories, he realized, and some of the most wonderful moments in his life. For the first time in years, it felt okay to admit that and—when he reached the top of the ladder, meeting Naomi’s gaze across the refuge from the world they had made when they were kids—he knew she felt the same way.
Years had passed, and they had both suffered and celebrated and changed from the people they’d once been, but in each other’s arms they would always be home.
They crossed the room and came together without a word, mouths meeting with enough heat to melt something inside of Jake. As their tongues danced and Naomi’s hands gripped his shoulders as he eased her to the leaf-strewn floorboards, Jake felt all his good intentions fading away.
It might be smarter to wait to be with Naomi, but right now he didn’t care about smart, he only cared that the woman he was falling in love with all over again was in his arms, hooking her leg around his waist as he fisted her skirt in his hand, slowly drawing the silky fabric up to bare her even softer thigh.

Auditioning You! is live on Kindle today!

Good Monday Everyone!

AUDITIONING YOU, my Cupid Island Christmas Novella is live on Kindle today (other sites to follow soon). I had such fun writing my contribution to this 3 author series with my writer friends Ruby Laska and Lila Ashe. 

So what is Cupid Island you may ask? Well....

Welcome to Cupid Island

On a private island in the Florida Keys, magic is brewing and love is in the air...
Mysterious billionaire, Rafe Westermere, has reopened his grandfather’s posh resort, a place with a reputation for romance that earned it the nickname “Cupid Island.” Using his family’s knack for knowing when two people are meant to be—and his considerable fortune—Rafe offers vacation scholarships to the unlucky in love. These guests arrive lost and alone, but they’ll leave with the love of their lives.
The other two books in the Cupid Island series will be going live this week, as well as the anthology featuring all three novellas. (I'll be back with details on the antho soon).

In the meantime, here's the scoop on AUDITIONING YOU (Have an amazing Monday!)


Auditioning You
A Cupid Island Christmas Novella
(A Back to Summerville Story)

The role of a lifetime…

Costume assistant, Beth Perkins, is in for the worst Christmas ever. Her actor boyfriend landed his dream job, only to end their relationship and have her banned from the set of her costuming gig. Within twenty-four hours, Beth finds herself homeless, boyfriend-less, jobless, and too ashamed to go home to Summerville, Georgia for the holiday. Thank goodness for her scholarship to Cupid Island. Beth is determined to make the most of her week in paradise, but she’s not interested in romance, especially if it comes calling in the form of Hollywood’s Sexiest Man Alive. She’s done with actors, once and for all.

Superstar Tanner Bryson is sick of the Hollywood machine. He longs for a more authentic life, and a connection with someone who loves him for who he really is. The second he pulls Beth Perkins from the sea—rescuing her from death by giant fish—Tanner feels the same connection he felt when she took his measurements weeks before. Tanner convinces Beth to give him a chance at her heart, but when Tanner’s Hollywood life intrudes, will Tanner and Beth’s newfound island love have what it takes to last in the real world?

Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Cupid's Island romance series, stories featuring women who are ready for love, and men with a passion for island adventure. The women come from small towns and big cities, but they'll all leave with the love of a lifetime.

The first three "Cupid's Island" romances are available now:

Book 1: Larissa Learns to Breathe by Ruby Laska
Book 2: Auditioning You by Jessie Evans
Book 3. Kitty's Song by Lila Ashe
Or purchase all three in A CUPID ISLAND CHRISTMAS and save $4.00.
