Jessie Evans gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write contemporary Southern romances and sexy, boundary-pushing New Adult reads.
She enjoys sweet, small town romances, and fictional walks on the wild side, and can't imagine a better job than playing pretend for a living.
She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few children in a cabin in the boonies. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.
When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and wandering the woods, glass of wine and camera in hand, on the lookout for Bigfoot.
A southern girl, born and bred, Jessie loves writing romances with sizzle, and hopes you'll enjoy her stories set in the south.
The firefighters of Summerville are still hot, hot, hot! Come along for the ride as Summerville's sexiest firefighters and their soul mates take the final steps on the path to happily-ever-after.

Old West restoration expert Sawyer Kane knows his share about ghosts. For years, he’s been haunted by the violence in his past. He’s certain he’s unfit for happily ever after…until he meets the irrepressible Mia. Can he convince Lonesome Point’s resident prankster that love is worth the risk?

--SADDLES AND SIN (Robert)
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. Women are already throwing themselves at his feet, but Robert only has eyes for his manager, Marisol. He’s a gentleman on the street, pure alpha between the sheets, and determined to show the all-business Marisol that romance is alive and well and good men are even better when they’re given permission to be bad.
--DIAMONDS AND DUST (Pike)
Pike Sherman is a legend in Lonesome Point, a hometown boy who made it to the big leagues. Literally. Professional baseball acquired one hell of a pitching arm and its latest celebrity bad boy when the gifted Pike was drafted. His broken heart came along for the ride, too, but he kept that private. After a few days back in Lonesome Point, Pike can't imagine life without Tulsi, the girl he left behind, but when Tulsi's secret is revealed, his heart is broken all over again. The only thing worse than losing the woman he loved, is losing six years with the daughter he didn't know he had.
And then fate stepped in, in the form of six feet, two inches of old flame…
Lark March is over Mason Stewart, so over him she's practically forgotten the cruel way he ended things four years ago. At least that's what she's told her sisters...
But when Mason shows up at her best friend's wedding, talking sweet and looking even sweeter, Lark can't deny the man still gets to her. Mason was always The One, the only man who could make her heart race and her bones melt. But can Lark possibly trust him again?
Mason Stewart is a changed man, a man who knows what he wants and won't stop until he's convinced the only woman he's ever loved that they’re meant to be. He persuades Lark to give him seven days, and seven dates, to remind her why they belong together.
But between small town gossip and her sisters’ meddling, Lark and Mason might need a miracle to make things work.
Then again, what’s more miraculous than true love?
She’ll marry the devil himself if that’s what it takes to protect her daughter…
Aria March has spent the past decade trying to forget the way Nash Geary made her feel. The way his mouth moved over her skin, the way he kissed her like he she was going to be his forever…
The way he broke her heart.
But now she has a daughter, and her wealthy ex-husband will stop at nothing to take her baby away. Aria doesn’t think she can win. Unless she can find a fake husband. A fake father. A fake perfect life to protect her family.
What are the odds Nash is looking for a fake wife?
Turns out, pretty damned good.
Now Aria and Nash have to fool their families, their friends, and a small town that can’t stop talking about their newfound love. But as the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, what started as pretend becomes the most important thing in their world.
Can these enemies turned lovers hold on to forever this time around?
