SADDLES AND SIN by Jessie Evans (Guest Post & #Giveaway)

Robert “Bubba” Lawson, hero of SADDLES AND SIN interviews the author:

Robert: So…Bubba. What made you decide on that for a name? You like to make things hard for your heroes?

Jessie: No! That name has a special place in my heart. My best friend when I was toddler was named Bubba. We live on neighboring farms in Louisiana. We were the only toddlers around and our moms were besties, so I guess we had to be friends, but I still have very warm memories of him.

Robert: That’s nice. 

Jessie: Really, he was such a sweet little boy with beautiful brown eyes and an amazing laugh. (sighs) He was my first crush.

Robert: You started young with this romance thing.

Jessie: We used to take baths together when we were two. 

Robert: (clears throat) Now I’m a little uncomfortable.

Jessie: It was an innocent baby thing! And honestly, I never meant to write a story about you. You were just the best friend character in LEATHER AND LACE. When I named you I wasn’t thinking about you being the hero of your own story. 

Robert: Now my feelings are hurt.

Jessie: Don’t get hurt feelings.

Robert: Cowboys have feelings too, you know.

Jessie: I do know! And I had a lot of feelings for you. I totally fell for you while I was writing LEATHER AND LACE. You were such a great friend to Mia and so sexy-on-the-down-low. I had to give you your own story. I rearranged the entire series so you could have your own book. Now don’t you feel special?

Robert: I do. I appreciate having the chance at a happy ever after.

Jessie: All the best men do, though not all are brave enough to say it. (sighs dreamily) You really are so sexy, Bubba. I heart you hard.

Robert: (inches away) I’m sorry, ma’am. But I’m both taken, and fictional.

Jessie: (covers Bubba’s lips with her hand) Shhh…I know, I know.

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.

  1. Oh boy, Jessie, am I ever glad I "met" you on this blog tour of yours!
