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.


First off, this is my first book I have ever read from Jessie, and I am seriously impressed. The wondering eye and the drool of the cover art was just one of the things that sold me to pick up Leather and Lace & rest assured I wasn’t disappointed and either will you be.

Like cowboys ✔

Like country romance ✔

Like a little bit of mystery ✔

These will be all of the things that you will find in Leather and Lace. I’m a newbie to Jessie’s work but I absolutely love L&L, it’s clean, unique, sexy and lively in it’s narrative. Mia lives in Lonesome Point and always looks for adventure. Owning her own lingerie shop, she literally and I mean literally runs into Sawyer. Out here in the hopes to cement a construction Job in the old part of town called Old Ghost Town. There first interaction was witty and passionate and Mia doesn’t think she will ever see Sawyer again.

“She was someone special, the kind of woman who needed to be lifted up so the world could see her shine, not locked away in a prison of her own fear.” – Leather and Lace by Jessie Evans

The man, the drool-worthy image, and the cowboy known as Sawyer is smokin’ and just about every girl’s country dream I’m sure. The narrative that plays is full of mystery, hot scenes, fighting attracting pulls and it definitely is a brilliant read. It is a fast read because it is a fast paced book but I loved it and can’t wait for Saddles & Sin’s following interconnected characters.
