think all the stories were great, but if I had to pick my favs they would be
Lora's Cooper's Fall and Cheyenne's The Edge of Sin.
sex scenes in Cooper's Fall were more than steamy hot and Cooper fits with
Lora's usual strong alpha hero. The story line involved just the right amount
of intrigue to make it more than just a sex story.
The Edge of Sin was one of her best. You can just feel the connection between
Zane and Willow. The heroine, Willow's character, was written so beautifully.
She jumped off the page and came to life as strong, bold and sassy and is the
perfect match to Zane's hard edged handsome alpha character.
other two stories were written just as well with strong beautiful leading
ladies and sexy alpha heros.

you say HOT!! I've always thought that Lora Leigh had a flair for the erotic,
but Nauti Intentions is right up there with the best. The love scenes in this
book will send shivers down you spine and leave ladies wondering where they can
get their own Major Alex Jansen. Oh Alex isn't perfect by any means, there were
times in the story where I wanted to slap him upside the head, but he certainly
made this story worth reading.
Mackay wasn't half bad herself. The feisty Mackay daughter character was very
well developed. I would have liked to have heard more about her in the previous
stories, but Lora did a great job of presenting her character in this novel.
Nauti series itself deserves high praise. I'm making my way through Lora
Leigh's series and so far this one has turned out to be second on my list. My
first favorite is the entire "Breed" series, which includes the cats,
wolves and coyotes. I have to say though, so far I haven't found a Lora Leigh
book that I totally hate. Another good series to check out by Lora is the
"Bound" series. For now this one is complete, although since she
added Nauti Intention, I'm wondering if we might see something that includes
Rogue and the sexy sheriff?
saw Janey Mackay taking a dip in her bikini, Major Alex Jansen has had to quell
the fire she ignites in him. Even touching her would mean death at the hands of
the Mackay men. Until now, the girl of his dreams—and fantasies—has
lived in a vacuum of affection, shying away from the danger she thinks men
represent. Alex sets out to prove her wrong, with his torturously slow
caresses. Everyone thinks Janey's safe now, with her abusers dead. But when
someone starts leaving spine-chilling notes, Alex won't rest until she's
completely safe. And completely his—body and soul.

and best book so far in the Nauti Boys series. I just fell in love with

Nights. A year
later she comes back in town to continue the investigation into arms dealing.
Her boss, Timothy, is also back. Timothy hasn't given her all the details, but
knowing him as she does Chaya is worried about what he's up to, especially when
he tells her to keep the Mackay's out of her investigation.

she's even more concerned about is being around Natches again. She knows that
once he gets her back, he won't be letting her go.
liked all three books in the Nauti Boy series, but this one was my favorite of
the three. It had an interesting plot that went past the fabulously sexy love
scenes. The plot was well written and executed well.
doesn't seem like in the beginning, Lora Leigh had planned to have a fourth
book, but next up is Nauti Intentions. I'll be sorry to see the end of the Nauti Mackay boys, but
at least we got one more chance to hear about them.

Mackay separated himself from his family years ago, except for the two cousins

reason: Government Agent Chaya Dane, who has fought to put her own past behind
her. A mission in Somerset, Kentucky, brings her back into the dreams of
Natches—and into the shadows cast by his father, suspected in the theft
of government missiles. And it could cost Chaya more than she ever imagined.

remember what happened the one and only night they shared together. Even though
she could never forget Dawg that is exactly what she sets out to do,

suddenly strange things are happening to her. Then one day she runs on what she

turns out the one who saves her is the one man she can't forget Dawg.
I liked the
second story in the Nauti Boys series, Nauti Nights, a little better than the
first. The characters were a little stronger and the buildup of the mystery was
nicely executed. At first I was a little concerned that I wouldn't like the
blackmail angle to the story, but Dawg more than redeems himself throughout the
story. I like Crista too. She's been thrown to the wolves and in a desperate
situation that isn't of her own making. She's smart and sassy, which I love in
a heroine. Dawg is the ultimate Nauti Boy, especially in the love scenes. So
far this series is really good.

been anxiously awaiting Lora's new "Breed" series book and found that
it wouldn't be out until August, so I decided it was time to check out one of
her other series I hadn't read and came across this four book series. (I know
they called it a trilogy originally, but I found a fourth book, "Nauti
Intentions" was released in early April.) These books are similar to the
August brother's series, but not as dark. As a matter of fact the MacKay
cousins are related to the Augusts.
far this is shaping out to be a good series, written in Lora's normal erotic
style. The heroes are strong and possessive and the heroines are feisty and
adventurous. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the series shapes
in a trilogy that crosses the boundaries of erotic fiction-from the bestselling
author of Megan's Mark.

"The Club's" members. Now after hearing of this infamous woman for

the new edition to Lora Leigh's series was on the shelves I made my way to grab
a copy and I wasn't disappointed. This addition to the Coyote series will keep
readers entertained and filled with emotion. Reading Anya plight will bring
tears to the eyes of even the hardest romance reader.
I love the
way Lora connects her series. In Mercury's War and Christmas Heat, Lora started
a new story line featuring American based companies trying to create drugs to
use against the Breeds. In Coyote's Mate she continues offering more pieces to
the puzzle, but not completing the story. I'm glad that Lora finally got around
to telling Del Rey and Anya's story. In Aiden's Charity the author kept us
waiting with more information about the couple that we only meet briefly after
finding out that Anya is going through the same mating heat that all the other
women in the Breed series. The couple works well together and I liked getting
to revisit the wolf compound and catching up Wolfe and Hope again.
other hand, while I understand the need to finally find a woman who stands
against all the mating heat and stuff, I was a little disappointed the author
tried it with this couple. I would love to see a story where Lora portrays a
woman who just meets her mate for the first time and bam she's in mating heat and
then wants nothing to do with him or the mating heat because she doesn't know
him and is scared to death of what's happening to her. Let that character
petition to be separated from her mate. While I understood why Anya was angry
and mistrusting I also saw the couple's growing love even before the mating.
That alone should have seen them back together after a few days not months
later. Maybe a good person to have mating troubles like this would be Jonas'
character. That could be really entertaining.
little disappointing, that didn't detract me from giving this book five stars
though. I found the book was well written, the story line appealing and readers
of the series will enjoy keeping up with characters and the story. For those
who haven't read the series, this is a good one to start on. Lora Leigh takes
on a whole new meaning to the weres and mating.

to the first few book goes a long way in telling the story Lora Leigh has
created. Mercury's War is the 16th book in Leigh Breed series. These are her
explanation to the existence of were creatures. I've enjoyed these books from
the first. Sometimes they idea behind the stories get a little
repetitive—there are just so many times that one can go through the
explanation of the mating heat—but the intrigue, betrayals and characters
created through the series keeps it going.
War is no exception to the rule. As the story line unfolds readers get to learn
more about Mercury's past. We first meet Mercury in the second book of the

series Mercury pops up many times until he works his way into the position of

is a smart, strong and viable heroine. She brings along with her the connection
of "The Leo" and his son Dane. As usual even in the end the Breeds
are still in danger and the story continues. According to Leigh's blog, we can
expect to see at least four other books in the near future. This review is
written after the second time I read this book in the past several months. I
wanted to prepare myself again for the Breeds' world again now that Coyote's
Mate is out. I'll have to wait another day though, as I take a quick reread at
Aiden's Charity. This will be the first time we meet the character in the new
book. I'm so excited I'll probably pull an all-nighter.
quick note: Whenever I read blogs and comments about the Breed series it is
always in reference to Jonas and his story. Jonas is a great character, but
what about Dane. I'd love to see if he ever meets his mate and what his story
find a way.

way out there titles like the August Men series. This book wasn't bad, but not
one of Lora's best. She had a good story line going, but I really would have
liked to have read more of the other side of the couples life than just their
sex life. The characters needed to be expanded on a bit more. I kept asking
myself, if Slade owned part of a construction company what was he doing working
for Homeland Security. A little more development into Jessie's character would
have made it so that she didn't seem like such a twit for waiting around for
someone she had no idea she would ever see again. I thought the rest of the
scenes in the book were well written and worth reading. Just dont go into
reading the book thinking the style will be up to Lora current books. She's
definitely improving with age.
