There’s a new bad boy in town…
Harley-riding cowboy Sawyer Kane is two parts swagger, one part sexy drawl, and all parts off limits. At least as far as Mia Sherman is concerned. After barely surviving her last relationship, Lonesome Point’s resident prankster has sworn off men. It’s for the best, really, considering her family is cursed—a real Irish curse that dooms each first born daughter to lose her husband on her wedding night.
But when long hot days talking history become longer, hotter nights with a man who smells like heaven, kisses like he means it, and can melt her panties off with one sexy smile, Mia realizes she wants more than a summer fling.
Too bad forever is forever beyond her reach.
Can true love conquer all, even a centuries-old curse? Mia and Sawyer may be the first to find out.

Another winner from Jessie Evans
Mia Sherman is a real firecracker. As owner of Lavender and Lace, Lonesome Point's answer to Victoria's Secret, she's busy selling sexy lingerie to tourists that come to visit her small town in Texas. Sawyer Kane is in town to make a bid to help renovate the ghost town that is part of Lonesome Point's history. When Mia and Sawyer meet, it's fireworks galore. It's hot and steamy from the get-go, and never lets up.
Jessie Evans does small-town romance like nobody's business. Her characters are always unique, vivid, and likeable, and the communities that she paints are places that seem like home. In addition to Jessie's signature love story, 'Leather and Lace' brings intrigue and an old family 'curse,' as well as a loveable and zany group of supporting characters to the table (it doesn't hurt that Sawyer is a sizzling hot cowboy, either!).
Jessie keeps upping her game, stepping out into multiple genres, hitting the mark every time. The Lonesome Point books are no exception, and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. Five stars all the way!
Hot Cowboy and Feisty Prankster
I am a big fan of Jessie Evans and have enjoyed all her books thus far includinng Leather and Lace. Leather and Lace's setting takes place in a small ghost town in Lonesome Point, Texas. Mia Sherman, a descendent of this small town and the owner of the lingerie shop in town, is one feisty, wild, prankster playing hottie. Sawyer Kane is the hot cowboy, harley riding, restoration expert sent to Lonesome Point to help restore the ghost town. One night, while Mia and her friends were partaking in one of her crazy prankster schemes, Mia literally ran into Sawyer, knocking him off his feet and into his heart. They both have been hurt from past relationships but they can not deny their steamy hot attraction for one another every time they run into each other, eventually giving in. What they thought would be a summer fling becomes so much more. Not only will you be drawn to this book because of Mia and Sawyers steamy hot relationship, but also because it includes a ghost town mystery, family curses, and past loves that return to stir trouble.
Reviw: Lonesome Point, Texas #1: Leather and Lace
Leather and Lace by Jessie Evans is the first book in her series. To be honest, I tend to roll my eyes at rugged Texas cowboy books. I have no reason for it - they're just not my thing. Until now. This book blended the world as I know it and the romantic fiction world together in such a way that I didn't find it so completely, well, hokey.
Mia is back home in Lonesome Point, Texas running her lingerie business, Lavender and Lace and is still recovering from a nasty breakup and subsequent attack that happened almost a year ago. Her family (read Grandmother) owns the ghost town and is planning to get the still closed/non-touristy side renovated and restored to help boost business.
This is where the ridiculously hot Sawyer swaggers in. He does wear a cowboy hat but the only horse he has between his legs is a supercharged Harley and all the horsepower it has to offer. Sparks ignite between Mia and Sawyer but because of her past she ignores it and denies her attraction to Sawyer.
Can she move beyond her issues with her past to let him in, is it worth it. He's only here for as long as the restoration takes and then he will be on to his next job...
A simple enjoyable read that will warm your hands and heart. Mia is hilarious and Sawyer is the manliest sweet guy ever.
