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!
Loved this book!
I'm not a professional writer of reviews by any means but it's one of the best books I've read in awhile! I could not read fast enough to find out how Mia and Sawyer make their life work out. Lots of good side stories too! Gram is the best with her tails of the family curse. I loved this book so much it's now almost 1am but I had to finish! I can't wait for book 2! You won't be sorry!
Big, Bold and Delicious by Janice Owen
Big, Bald and Delicious!
This is the first book in a 4 part series, but they are all stand alones, so no cliffhangers. We meet Mia, at the beginning of the book, when she is being a big prankster with her two besties, Bubba and Ugly Ross. I love her attitude and I felt like Ms. Evans brought the character fully to life. Mia has a sparkly and bubbly personality, but she is hiding from a bad relationship that we learn more about as the story goes on. Within the first couple of pages, she literally runs into Sawyer and the story really takes off from there.
Due to Mia's past and the tales of an old family curse, she doesn't want to get involved with another man. But as an original descendent of the founding family, she ends up having to show him around the old buildings of their ghost town, as Sawyer is there to bid on restoring it. He is also running from an ugly past and a bad relationship, but he's looking forward to getting to know Mia better and sharing some hot nights with her.
There's mystery on both sides of this story, which makes it a really fun read. When Mia's dangerous ex shows up in town, they both quickly learn that sometimes, you meet the right person for the long haul and it's time to take that leap of faith.
I loved all the quirky characters and look forward to reading their stories as well. The next book features Bubba, so I'm looking forward to learning more about his singing and his story. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone that enjoys romance and mystery together.
