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.

Look for the entire Lonesome Point series:

    I got this book because of the title... (my husband and I danced to Stevie Nicks&Don Henley song 'Leather and Lace' on our wedding day) I am glad that I had this book. I loved everything about it! Sawyer and Mia were the best! They reminded me of how special love can be with that special person you spend your life with. Thank you for this amazing book.

    My expectations were higher after the first chapter. Mia had such spunk. That drive was lost to me until the end. I did love Sawyer. He had a huge heart. Actually Mia did too. She really loved the people in her life. There was just something missing in the story for me. Apparently others love the story, so I recommend you give it a try. Enjoy.

  • Sexy!

    By Sandra Two Book Pushers
    I read Jessie's Wild Rush Series and I feel in love with her books. They are different. She adds just an element of mystery to this series that is have never read about before. It is sexy, sweet and add some mystery and that is what I need. This could be real people, in a real small country town with a crazy family history. Mia Sherman moved back to her small hometown as soon as she Graduate school. She needed her family more than ever so she moved back to the place she grew up, a place where her family is a legend. She is a wild one looking to have fun in this quiet town, it was not by sleeping around but by hanging out with her best friends and pulling pranks. She needed to let loose and on one of these types of nights she run right into a man she didn't see coming.... Sawyer didn't know if he would be in town for a few days, weeks or even months. He was there to consult on a job but once he met Mia he was intrigued and wanted to know more about her. So he now really wanted to get this job even if he was only going to be around for the summer...he was not looking for a relationship just some fun. Mia owns a lingerie shop in town and her Gram owns the Old Ghost Town that has been in her family for generations. The old ghost town has so many stories from family curses, ghosts and people that have gone through or settled there. When Mia hears these stories her whole life, she believes there is truth in them. Sawyer things they are very interesting and doesn't believe in them but when he gets more involved he knows there is truth to some of them. Mia and Sawyer go into this thinking it will be just a fling. But their chemistry is electric! Sawyer is a hot southern Boy and Mia is the strong southern gal. They get each other, they don't push too hard into what they are keeping in the past. Can they open up and let their walls down? Or will they just keep it to just being friends with benefits and move on? Will the stories of the past ruin their future? I lived this story! It is not just about being hot and heavy, there is so much more. A ghost town, mystery, A nutty Ex, awesome friends, a Tough Gram and a cute little girl. I can't wait to read about Saddles and Sins! Quotes: The more time she spent with him, the more his sexy, intelligent side begin to outweigh his intimidating, I-swagger-on-my-way-to-mount-my-Harley side. It was Sawyer Kane, looking good enough to sprinkle with salt, lick clean, and follow with a tequila chaser. "Don't worry, I'm going to give you everything you need."

  • 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. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**
