When Bliss MacKay is almost kidnapped mercenary Angel Calloway makes it her mission to protect her.  Chaya MacKay, Bliss’ mother, is none too happy with Angel.  Chaya knows Angel is hiding something from her and cannot trust her with her daughter until she knows the truth.

Reece “Duke” Duquaine is a former Army Investigator charged with keeping an eye on Angel and discovering her secrets.  The longer he’s around Angel the harder it is to deny the attraction between them.  But will Duke be able to protect Angel from herself?

The final book in the Nauti Girls series blows Author Lora Leigh’s Nauti World to pieces and then put’s it back together in true Lora Leigh fashion.

Within minutes of starting Nauti Angel I knew I was going to need some Kleenex.  I found myself mesmerized by Angel and her relationships with Chaya, Bliss and Duke.  I could not get enough and finished in one sitting.  Nauti Angel combines the perfect amount of emotion, action and hot sex.   I shed many tears and I’m sad to hear this is the final Nauti Girls book.  Angel and Duke have a rough start.  After all, women don’t usually appreciate a man trying to dig up her secrets.  However, he redeems himself when he stands by her after her secrets come to life.

The connection between Angel and Duke is passionate and exciting.  They are forced into some tough situations but always seem to make it through mostly unscathed.  Angel is a complex character and I enjoyed her journey throughout the book.  The action is intense and thrilling.  I loved the fact that we were able to spend a lot of time with all the Nauti Boys and Girls.  For me it was like a reunion.  I enjoyed finding out what they are up to now.  And the secret that Angel’s carrying around…well that’s a whopper!

Prepare yourself for another sexy hot ride from Author Lora Leigh in Nauti Angel.  The suspense, drama and sexual tension make Nauti Angel a keeper.  Author Lora Leigh outdid herself! Nauti Angel is the perfect way to end the fantastic Nauti Girls series.

Alyssa Hampstead is the daughter of a U.S. Senator who is believed to be headed towards the Presidency.  She is barely eighteen and finally eligible to go to the party she has heard about for years.  Besides being one of the season’s most wanted invitations, it is also a place to meet other intriguing people, which is exactly what Alyssa does.  Sebastian and Shane De Loren are cousins who are straddling the line both professionally and sexually.  They are at the holiday party to gain information and if seducing a willing woman will give it to them, so be it.  At least, those were their thoughts before a young and stunning girl wandered into their alcove.  Now after a few minutes of conversation, both Sebastian and Shane know that Alyssa is theirs.

 

A summer of hot romance and sexual pleasure has bound Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane together. Just when the men are about to make Alyssa a permanent part of their lives, their families step in and make them give up Alyssa because of a threat to all of them.  All three are torn apart as the years pass. Time and again, Alyssa loses all that she loves, and Sebastian and Shane work hard to remove the threat that is keeping her from their hearts.  Life is not easy for any of the threesome and yet, just when the men believe they can finally have Alyssa, there is yet another block in their way.  Now finally, Sebastian and Shane can have what they lost so long ago, but has time and so much disappointment and heartache destroyed the Alyssa they knew and left a shell unable to love again?  Only the bond wedged between them so long ago might be able to give these lovers the future they have dreamed of for many, many years.

 

Passion found, lost and found again after loss and heartache will learn that when love is involved it will always come out on top in Secret Pleasures.  I will say right off that my heart seriously ached for Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane in more than one place.  I have read the Bound Hearts series since it began and, at first, I believed that this was just another of those sexy stories.  Then the threats and heartaches began, and I learned that the journey that Alyssa, Sebastian, and Shane had to travel was harder than anyone before them.  Through it all I kept hoping that somehow they would find a way to have their happy ending. After all, it was a romance.  Yet, I will admit that in a couple of places, I wasn’t sure this would happen.  When these three lovers finally came together—older, wiser, and after a long and painful separation—to me, it just made their ending that much sweeter.  I have to say that I believe this to be the best Bound Hearts story yet, and that is saying a lot.  Secret Pleasures is a love story full of erotic pleasures and years of struggles that will tear your heart out in places and yet, it ends with the best possible of endings—passion regained and love abounding!

The Callahan boys have been ostracized since childhood by the town they live in. The history between their parents and their maternal grandparents is sordid and that relationship has deferred to them since their parents death. The boys were willed their parents land but their grandparents want it back in its rightful owners hands.

Rafer Callahan is known around Sweetrock as another one of those bad Callahan boys. He left town to join the marines after being accused of murder. There has never been any doubt that he would be coming back to claim his inheritance no matter the difficulty he has getting it. There is something else he wants that resides in Sweetrock but he knows he shouldn’t claim Cambria Flannigan. 

Cami Flannigan has been in love with Rafer almost her entire life. She even loved him after he was accused of brutally murdering her sister. Cami has complete faith in Rafer’s innocence and has always been willing to stand up for him. Now that she’s all grown up and living back in Sweetrock it’s hard to ignore her feelings for Rafer. One snowy night brings about a night of passion they will never forget. Will their night together bring dire consequences? It seems someone holds a deeper grudge towards the Callahan’s and doesn’t want to see them happy. This person is ready to take away whatever Rafer loves—making Cami a target. Can Rafer protect the woman he loves?

Midnight Sins is a spicy romance with a killer plot. I must say I really enjoyed Rafer and Cami’s story. I think they make a very special couple. Their relationship has tons of emotion and heat. I was absolutely pulled in by their feelings for each other and the heady circumstances that brought them together. Rafer is definitely an alpha male and he brings plenty of sexy to this story. I love that Cami’s no push over either. I found the back story to be unique and intriguing. I cannot wait to find out more about what happened to the Callahan boys parents and see if any of my suspicions are correct. There are several errors and discrepancies throughout the book. The timeline at the beginning is a bit confusing. I felt like I was missing something at one point. However, I don’t want to dwell on it too much. Yes, it’s bad that there are errors but for me it doesn’t affect how much I liked Midnight Sins. None of these errors seemed as offensive as some I’ve seen in the past. Rafer and Cami’s romance is hot, heavy and immensely satisfying. I am looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh returns to the world of the Breeds where animal instincts can bring a feral pleasure to every man and his willing female mate.

Lawe Justice is one of the few feline breeds that hopes he will never find his mate, along with his twin, Rule Breaker.  After all, Lawe saw what happened when the Council discovered mates very early in his life and every mated couple he has met since then has not changed his mind.  Mates cause Breeds to act irrationally and can risk their sanity in his opinion.  What’s worse is that if one dies and the other lives, it’s a lifetime of hell and loss.  That was his opinion before he came face-to-face with the woman who challenged him like no other – his mate.

Diane Broen is a warrior and one who has paid her dues.  Now she commands her Uncle’s team into dangerous situations and with very few exceptions, her team comes out the winner.  Now that Diane’s little sister has mated with the Director of Breed Affairs, Diane has even more reason to do her part in helping the Breeds end all threats to them and their families.  As they say, now it’s personal.  Knowing that if she and Lawe ever act on the heat simmering between them it might kill a vital part of her, Diane knows that her largest battle is about to happen – that for her future happiness.

Lawe has finally accepted that not only is Diane his mate, but that he needs to complete the mating and find a way to keep her protected and safe.  Too bad that Diane is not on board with that plan.  Diane knows that if she allows Lawe to keep her in a safe bubble it will kill the most vital parts of her.  Right now both Lawe and Diane are in a race to locate the people who might have the answers to save Diane’s niece.  Diane and Lawe are after the same thing but they are nowhere near working together as a team.  Along with the battle to locate the missing answers, the larger battle between Lawe and Diane will determine if they can be mates who battle together as partners to benefit all or if Lawe’s need to keep Diane safe will kill all but a lesser passion between them.  Those answers better be found soon because the Council has learned about Lawe and Diane and are already coming for them.

Two strong warriors learn the hard way that sometimes compromise can lead to a passionate love made stronger than ever.  Lawe and Diane discover this for themselves in Lawe’s Justice.  I always knew that Lawe would be in trouble when he found his mate since I first met him much earlier in the books.  His strong hope to never meet his mate told me that he would have a doozy of a time when he did: man did he ever.  Diane was more than a match for Lawe, she was as much of a warrior as Lawe and has the same type of internal strength and belief in right and wrong.  I alternated between shaking my head, laughing and groaning as I watched Lawe and Diane work and fight to find the compromise that would give them both all they ever wanted.  Both of them seemed to know where they wanted their relationship to end but the missteps they each made on the way to getting there had me wondering if the end game would be as great as I knew they deserved.  I freely admit to cheering when the final fight came and they were both able to accept each other for what they were and what their part in the Breed battle would be.  I love it when strong souls find the passion that is waiting for them.  Lawe’s Justice takes two strong and passionate people and makes them even stronger and much more passionate by uniting them in a love that will help blaze their way forward forever more.

There’s a fine line between animal instinct and human desire—and in her “highly erotic saga” (Fresh Fiction), #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh crosses it. Now, in her new novel of the Breeds, the mating heat continues... Lion Breed and enforcer Rule Breaker has just a few rules he doesn’t break. Not for anything. Not for anyone—like never have sex with a woman outside his own breed, especially a human woman. Especially someone too helpless, too fun loving and too full of life to ever be able to protect herself, let alone help him to protect her. If the damned animal inside him insists on a mate, then why pick her? A woman who is an easy target and who can be used as a weapon against him at any time. But what he suspects is mating heat may not be that at all. Just his animal instincts rioting, pacing, irritated whenever he's away from her. Okay, he can handle that. What ensues is a fiery affair that breaks all the rules of mating heat and will eventually endanger his mate with the very rules designed to protect the Breeds—for she’s possibly been working against them...

JoyfullyRecommended

 

Enforcer Rule Breaker is a lion breed with very strict rules for himself and one of his most important ones is to never, but never let himself mate.  Seeing the horrors that happened to his family in the labs is something that Rule will never forget and the reason he will never allow any woman to become that tied to him.  But there is one woman who Rule has been waiting for, just waiting until she was no longer a teen.  Now the time has come for Rule to act on the fierce attraction he feels for her and he knows for a fact she isn’t his mate because he has none of the known mating aspects.  Game on.

 

Gypsy Rum McQuade lost her childhood as a young teen when she watched her brother be killed while trying to save her from Council coyotes who were using her against him and ended up losing even more than that.  That night changed Gypsy’s life forever, now she has two lives – one in the dark shadows and one is the bright light of society.  Gypsy is determined to do everything she can to prove herself, for what and to whom only she will never admit even to herself.  Life has been hard enough lately but now she seems to have one hard and hot lion on her tail and he wants to play.

 

Rule’s instincts has had him spending the past several years protecting Gypsy as well he could, but somehow she still became the focal point in the semi-secret mission the Breeds are doing in the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. Rule knows that Jonas will do anything to protect and save his baby daughter’s life, even if it means using a woman he swore to protect years ago.  Gypsy can tell that something is afloat with the Breeds and even her friendship with many of them might not be enough to help her if the truth about what and whom she knows ever comes out.  Rule would lay down is life to find the answers to save Jonas’ daughter but not at Gypsy’s expense.  The lust that both Rule and Gypsy have been ignoring for years won’t be ignored any longer but just when ecstasy should have ruled the night, Rule discovers that maybe he didn’t know himself as much as he thought.  Even worse, his actions may have caused an insurmountable divide between him and Gypsy.  The answers that Jonas, Rule and the other Breeds have been hunting for in New Mexico are about to come out and they will bring about even more hurt and heart break before it’s all over. Relief, joy and happiness will greet some, while sorrow, betrayal and disbelief will await others – which side of the coin will Rule and Gypsy end up on or will they even be on the same side with it’s all over?

 

It’s a battle of the wits when an enforcer finally meets a will he can’t ignore any longer when passion bursts to life.  Rule Breaker shows Rule and Gypsy that sometimes you just can’t let past horrors determine the future.  My heart broke for Gypsy when I read about what changed her life when she was so young and what her life had become.  I have wondered for a while if Rule would ever meet a woman that would allow him to feel the intense love needed to mate and soothe his soul.  Once I saw them together, I knew that when Gypsy and Rule finally allowed themselves to accept what was between them it would be intense and would engulf them and I wasn’t wrong.  I have followed the mini arc that has been in the last several Breed books involving the Navajo Nation and the hunt to save Amber’s life.  So many answers were found in this book and yet I saw a few more threads that seemed to unravel just as others were knotted tightly.  The paths that Gypsy and Rule walked that lead them not only together but allowed them to still fight the good fight had me reading late into the night and yawning all the next day at work.  Rule Breaker is intense and playful, suspense and passion filled all while proving to two very stubborn people that some things just can’t be denied.

 

Ms. Leigh is pretty much an auto buy for me, but even saying that Rule and Gypsy’s story is the ultimate in moving along a story line while being hot enough to steam while you read it. Yes, you guessed it – I just knew that Rule Breaker would be a must read from me and also a Joyfully Recommended book.  I just know that it will be a story you won’t forget anytime soon.
