Hot Texas Days, and Hotter Texas Nights

Saddles and Sin
Lonesome Point, Texas 2
by Jessie Evens
a Stand-alone Contemporary Western Romance
From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jessie Evans.

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 that 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.

Review by pearls:

Bubba is the perfect boyfriend.  An angel by day, devil by night kind of guy.  And Marisol is experienced enough to believe that if something is too good to be true, well, it probably is.    The one thing she does know is that he is going to be the next big C&W music star.  She accompanies him home, affording her the chance to see the real Bubba aka Robert Lawson upclose and for real.  She finds that he is the answer to all the dreams she never allowed herself to believe in anymore. 
I was given this title as an arc to review, and didn't realize it was the second in the series until I wrote up the blog post.  It stands alone, while building on the previous friends and family members.  Marisol has lots of secrets threatening to spill out of her closet, and Bubba is working to build her trust .  But can he before she runs.
The story began a bit slow, with some repetition, but then the writer found her stride.  The
 desire between the two become a palpable presence in the book. scene by the spring quite steamy. The best friends are wonderfully fun and supportive, a nice counterpoint to the more conservative stance of the families.  A nice feel good romance about the importance  of following your dreams, and supporting the dreams of the one you love.
Leather and Lace
Lonesome Point, Texas 1
Cowboy bikers, fireworks, and romance, oh my…
Wild girl, Mia Sherman, has a secret—she isn’t as fearless as she pretends. Descended from Lonesome Point, Texas’s founding family, Mia grew up hearing tales of an old Irish curse that had followed the Shermans to America. At age twenty-four, Mia is still terrified of the stories, because they aren’t stories. They are a warning about what will happen if Mia allows love and romance into her life. The curse struck Mia’s grandmother and her great-great-whatever grandmother, and Mia knows she could be next. The first-born daughter of every generation is cursed to lose her husband on her wedding night, which is one of the many reasons Mia has sworn off relationships.
Until the fateful day Sawyer Kane rides his Harley into her life …
Rancher turned restoration expert, Sawyer Kane, can’t believe his luck when the feisty owner of the lingerie shop next to his hotel turns out to be the curator of his latest project, a ghost town he’s been sent to restore. He’s looking forward to long, hot days talking history, and hotter nights with Mia, but the redhead with the killer smile seems determined to keep him at a friendly distance. But when a dangerous man from Mia’s past arrives in town, Sawyer finds himself drawn into her inner circle, and into the legend of Lonesome Point itself.
Can true love conquer all, even a centuries-old curse? Mia and Sawyer may be the first to find out.
