I started to read this series from the middle. I read Saddles and Sins first and then Diamonds and Dust next... not realizing this book, Leather and Lace was the first one. As a credit to Ms. Evans, it didn't matter because the warmth and feel of these books held up no matter which way you read them.

In this book, there is a troubled woman who was raised to be strong, independent and sure of herself a

This book is set in Lonesome Point, Texas - and I never want to leave! The cover pulled me in with 'cowboy' but I got so much more!

Mia meets Sawyer while pulling off a hilarious prank with her friends which sets the tone for this sexy and fun read. I love how they are both real people dealing with life as it is thrown at you. Add in a ghost town - with real ghosts, a family curse, as well as some real danger, and that adds up to this 5-star read.

Funny, heartwarming and sexy, I stalk the shelve

I really enjoyed this book. The first chapter was fun, with Mia, and her friends having a little innocent fun pulling pranks in a small town. I didn't think by the first chapter that this book would have any depth. I was wrong. This book had a lot going on within the plot. The details were pinned vividly, allowing me to see the story play out in my imagination as I read.

The plot included a romance between Mia, and Sawyer. I love the way the two met. Mia's family had a curse. The story goes into

I have read all of Jessie's books and she is amazing! I love the way she writes; it's so clean, fresh and witty. She makes small towns come to life and you feel like you are home. Mia lives in Lonesome Point and owns a lingerie shop and one night she literally runs into Sawyer. He's in town to bid on a construction job in the Old Ghost Town.

Great read

Leather and Lace was a great story. It was intriguing from the start, never had a dull moment, and even laced with some mystery and suspense. Can't wait to read more of the Lonesome Point Texas series!

My first taste of Jessie Evan’s writing was with her Wild Rush series and I absolutely loved that story. I haven’t read any others but when I read the synopsis to this book I immediately put it on my TBR. I mean who doesn’t love cowboys and bikers. Never mind the guy is both a cowboy and a biker. This book was great. I really enjoyed learning about Mia and Sawyer. The story that started with a kiss.

Mia is a strong, educated businesswoman with a horrible ex----so horrible he's in jail. Paul haunts Mia's nightmares, but he's back in LA and she's in Lonesome Point, Texas living near her family and friends. Mia's a bit of a prankster, and she topples into Sawyer mid-prank, very early one Saturday morning. Like 2:30am, after having far too many shots of whiskey.

Sawyer isn't looking for romance in Lonesome Point. He's there to bid on the restoration of the nearby ghost town, but he's more than h

I can not believe this book is free it is such a good romantic story. I am a historical romance girl and this one even though in a modern setting still hit all the right notes for me. Mia owns a lingerie shop in this small town in Texas and she comes from a family with a," family curse."

I put that in quotes because there is more to that story as you read but Mia also has battle scars from a rocky relationship with Paul (her obsessive ex). Sawyer is this 6'3" god who blows into town on his Harley

A solid start to a new series by Jessie Evans. We have a slightly naughty but fun Mia who is abstaining men after believing all her life of a family curse especially when her last relationship turned very sour.

We meet Sawyer who is in town on business....

Leather and Lace was a great introduction to Jessie Evans for me.

Mia is a fiery red head while Sherman is a big, bald, sexy cowboy/biker with a deep sexy voice. Mia Sherman came back home after escaping her ex-boyfriend and finishing grad school. Sawyer Hale’s ex-girlfriend gave invasion of privacy new meaning. Sawyer comes to town to bid on renovations of this ghost town when he is literally knocked down and then kissed senseless by Mia.

"I read and reviewed this for Wicked Reads"

This is one of those books which draws you into the setting so completely that you can visualise the place and look out of the windows with them - and given I live 30 miles outside London, UK, that is quite a location shift! Mia is a feisty independent woman, who does not let life drag her down, rather she embraces it full on, except when it comes to settling down. A deep seated fear of a family curse, irrational as it may seem, is holding her back. Wat

Pretty good start

This was a nice story with a little suspense and drama. Tomboy but not by choice. Mia had a really bad experience while in college and has sworn off getting close to any man. But Sawyer is not just any man. He knows something is up with Mia when she acts kiddish at his attempt in flirting. He goes to the only person who can tell him Mia's best friend Bubba. When Mia's past comes back to haunt her Sawyer must prove to her he is there for her and is nothing like the nightmare afte

This was such a fun read. Mia is such an engaging character and Spencer is quite the hunk. Together they have a wonderful chemistry. Because of a family curse and some terrible judgement of the male of the species in her past, Mia has decided that a forever man is not in her future. Spencer comes to town to renovate the ghost town and he finds himself infatuated by the charmingly different Mia. This story is fun and has a lot of heart as well as some sizzling chemistry. A great start to the Lone

I struggled through the first 1/3 of the book and gave up. Maybe it's because the first chapter was so ridiculous(really-hanging bras and panties from the town flagpole and parking meters). The characters just didn't seem realistic. ...more

Easy. Sexy. Romantic.

this book had everything I enjoy in a good book.
This book was more awesome than I thought it would be. But the title sucks! Ghost Town. The Curse of the First Daughters. Or something like that would be more fitting. Sure, she sold nickers for a living. Not the main story here. Or a side story. And the cover, all miss represent the story. Sad.

This was a western romance that was a quick read with some heat to it. Mia is the owner of Lavender and Lace, a lingerie shop, that is in her hometown of Lonesome Point, Texas, whose claim to fame is a ghost town. When we meet her and her friends, Bubba and Ugly Ross, they are pranking by putting lingerie all over town – up the flagpole, on her cousin’s gnomes, etc. At times there is a playfulness to the

Through a free book of day web page I stumbled upon a new to me author named Jessie Evans. Leather and Lace (Lonesome Point Texas) was the first book I’ve ever read by Jessie and can I just say, I will now be reading the rest of the books in her repertoire.
Leather and Lace is book #1 in the Lonesome Point Texas series. The main characters are Mia Sherman and Sawyer Kane. Mia’s family is one of prominence in the community and she recently returned home after a relationship turned bad and failed.
This one fell a little short for me. Not sure if its a 2.5 or genuinely just a 2 but it really felt like two separate books: The quirky rom-com with a prankster protagonist and the crime thriller vibe with hints of possible paranormal. There were some aspects I liked. I found the ghost town setting intriguing and probably would have loved it if the story was more about the restoration process. I thought this book would be more lighthearted than it was (which isn't actually an issue). Both protag ...more

Funny, sexy, sweet, heartwarming story but with a healthy dose of suspense, drama, secrets, mystery, a ghost town and an old family curse.

Sawyer is a sweet but hot motorcycling cowboy, someone I'd certainly be happy to meet. Mia is a bit of a prankster with a heart of gold but has been hurt. She is slowly learning to overcome her fears of letting a man get too close after her previous disastrous and frightening relationship. Sawyer doesnt let people get close either, but their attraction cannot

I purchased the anthology "Hot Texas Days Anthology" on Audible by Lili Valente; Guessing that's a pseudo-name seeing it as "Jessie Evans" on here.

The curse and Ghost stories played a tertiary role in the story which I would have loved to have more of but the little bit that crept into the story kept it enjoyable. I adored the beefy biker with a heart of gold and Mia's quirky attitude. Anyone who calls their Grandma "Sugar Britches" is aces in my book. While there was some uncertainty and relat
