LEATHER AND LACE
Lonesome Point, Texas, Book 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.

Meet the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessie Evans, gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sexy, contemporary romances she loves to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. 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 drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.

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.

Leather and Lace is the first book in the Lonesome Point series, and is the first book that I have read by Jessie Evans. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of this series.  This book is about Mia Sherman, a beautiful woman who loves to pull pranks. She wants the town people to think that she is fearless, and to a degree she is. But there is a story in her family about a curse, where you lose your husband on your wedding night, so Mia has decided to live her life alone, and to die an old maid. That is until she runs into, or runs over, Sawyer Kane, a handsome rancher in town to restore the old ghost town to its original glory. Sawyer is immediately drawn to the sassy lingerie shop owner, and determined to find out why she pulls away from him. When an old friend shows up in town, determined to bring harm to Mia, Sawyer suddenly finds himself drawn into her life, and into the history of the little town. If you love a romance, with cowboys that ride Harleys, and a little supernatural thrown in, then this is the book for you. Loved it and looking forward to more!!

A sexy cowboy biker, romance, mystery, and suspense - what more do you need? A very interesting book with curses and a ghost town, and full of hot romance. Couldn't put it down. Really enjoyed. Highly recommend.

Cowboys, ghost towns, hot romance, and stalker ex-boyfriend... A cheerful group of friends in the small town Texas, charming, likable, engaging, fun and always ready for mischief. The whole story has such a joyful tone, you can feel the thick, hot summer air, the love of family and friends, and the merry ways they engage with each other. Both Mia and Sawyer has been unlucky in love before, and have some trust issues, not wanting to commit into a relationship any time soon. But the attraction is steaming hot, and the uncomplicated way they have with each other is pure joy. The more time they spent together, more of the feelings gets involved, trust is built, and passion runs hotter than a Texas summer day. Sawyer is such an alpha, protective, big and burly. But also sweet, tender and loving, so considerate and caring towards everyone around. Mia is fun, charming with a prankster side into her, she looks after her friends and family, and guides her secrets close to her heart. The ghost town is alluring. I loved how many times the big alpha cowboys said 'I don't believe in ghosts, but..' the unexplainable things happening in the ghost town brought unexpected entertainment into the story. Mia's ex, Paul, who was suppose to be in the prison, shows up in the town, and suddenly no one is safe, not least the closest to Mia. The tension, fear, and desperation is palpable, when Paul kidnaps Mia, and holds her hostage in the ghost town. Such an enjoyable and heartening story, the romance was adorable while scorching hot, the friends and family witty and fun, the suspense and action heart stopping, mixed with ghost town with unexplainable actions ~ Four Spoons!

Dates a guy for a year and doesn't sleep with him then swears off men for another year, but she's on the pill which is convenient because 3days after meeting the cowboy she falls into bed with him----REALLY??? And then she apologizes to him for still being a virgin! She sure makes up for lost time then. Wish I could get back the time I wasted reading this book.

I love a good romance! Leather and Lace is very sexy, very real, and sooo additive! Jessie writes about the real things that happen in life. Readers like me who lose themselves in a book and this does that. If you want to read a book about love, trust and some ghost this is a MOST READ.

4.5 star The story has laughs, curse, secrets, suspense, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. This is Mia and Sawyer’s story. Sawyer is in town to help restore an old part of the ghost town. Mia has written off men between her ex and the family curse she knows that she can’t have a man. Sawyer gets under her skin and keeps after her for dates. But what happens when her past comes for her? Can Sawyer protect her or is she going to try and take on the danger by herself? Will she come out alive and well? Or is she about to be tossed into her worst nightmare? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book.

The plot was your average boy meets girl romance but with several fun twists! If I say too much it would spoil your read so I will just say it's a good read! Fast paced book you'll tear right through and the ending will leave you hunting for the next book about some of the rest of the characters. If you like romance stories be sure to give it a read and if you are a mystery buff you would enjoy this as well.
