I will start by saying that the blurbs on the author's site, publisher's site, Amazon, and Goodreads are wrong. The setting and hero's name is right, everything else including the heroine's name, background, and plot are incorrect.

Here's the real story.

Dawg Mackay has four teenage half-sisters he never knew about. Timothy Cranston shows up to break the news, with the sisters and their mother in tow. Family is everything to the Mackays and Dawg steps up to take care of them. This is in the prolog

Dawg has four half-sisters that come to him via Timothy Cranston, the man he and his cousins love to hate, five years ago. His gem of a father put the girls’ mother through hell, leaving them to fend for themselves and after his death, no money was left for them to survive on. They’re moments from being forced to live on the street with Timothy steps in and after verifying the family connection, he takes them to Dawg knowing he’ll never turn

Timothy Cranston, five years ago, shows up with 4 sisters and their mother to the Mackay cousins. Dawg never knew his father had another family. He would of never thought that his ½ sister’s mother is even younger than Dawg.

Now five years in the future, Eve Mackay, has graduated from college and is starting her adult life in Kentucky living her families bed and breakfast. Eve thinks that if she keeps herself occupies her nights working at Walker’s Run, waiting tables, she will forget about the

I was one of those fans who LOVED the Nauti Boys series! I ate it up! All of the dominant and protective males in backwoods Kentucky.... YUMMY! However, I would have to call Lora Leigh's attempt to add on to that by creating the Nauti Girls series with yet another government conspiracy is a serious flop!!!

First of all, it is blatantly obvious in the beginning by dumping 4 new sisters onto Dawg that this is a pathetic way of insuring a full series... lovely. Nothing more exciting than a lazy seri

FIrst of all - how did this get an average rating of 4* when every other review I see is a 2* or 1* ?!?!?!

What the hell did i just read?!?!

Convoluted and secretive plot is ok, but shouldn't the readers know what's going at some point? By the end?!
Here goes:
Brogan is thought to be a "traitor" (i got sooo sick of hearing this word!) but he is actually an undercover agent. Eve is in the center of some case but we never actually find out what the case is or why Eve of all people. Eve promised her c

Though I really liked Eve Mackay, Brogan Campbell was a real jerk. He just steamrolled over her regardless of what she wanted. He didn't rape her (she was too willing for that) but he surely didn't take no for an answer.

I liked the plot though it was really convoluted and confusing. Brogan is undercover. Somehow Dawg, Rowdy and Natches are involved though it's not explained until the very end. The powers that be want Eve involved though they won't say why. Hmm very secretive.

Nothing, but nothing is less sexy than forcing a woman to bear your child. Condom breaks during your one night stand with a virgin? Kidnap her and lock her away until the morning after pill isn't a viable option, because teh wimmens are just too flighty to be given control their own reproductive systems.

Lorah Leigh ought to be ashamed of herself.

I have to agree with other readers who were let down by this book. I usually enjoy Lora Leigh's book but this one just pissed me off. For something that is the start of a series called the Nauti Girls, the women in this book, especially the lead, Eve, barely get a chance to register. I've enjoyed other books featuring dominant heroes but this just came off as extremely misogynistic. I'll read other Lora Leigh books but I'm done with her Nauti series.

The whole story came off as very convoluted. I

Returning to the world of alpha overprotective former military men and their women, Nauti Temptress is a great read. This is a 3.5 star for me. I enjoyed every little twist and turn in this book.

There were a few sad times as Eve, the oldest of Dawg's half sisters finally finds her mate. At 24 and a virgin, she's been waiting a long time. Unfortunately her man who is also alpha male is in deep with law enforcement and those who are traitors. How does it all work out? Kind of messed up.

I really wanted to like this...but I just couldn't finish it.


It was giving me a headache. I had the same kinda problem with the rest of the Nauti series, something about it didn't seem to 'flow' as other suspense romance novels I've read which really frustrated me.

I should probably mention I read most of them while being stuck at home sick, so maybe I should add a star or something for that, but I give myself better credit for that. A good read shouldn't involve so much thinking of "

This book was a huge disappointment. It felt like more like a political platform for Ms.Leigh's position on pro choice. While I stand behind anyone's right to air their viewpoint, on anything, I do not want to read a political rant while reading erotica. So to you Ms. Leigh, what the hell are you about? ...more

A good enough book but nothing to write home about. It was definitely better than the first couple of books in the series. Although, at times the scenes felt silly and overly dramatic. I almost felt like I was watching a bad B movie.

First in the Nauti Girls erotic romance series; it's an offshoot from Leigh's Nauti Boys series and based in Somerset, Kentucky. The couple focus is on Eve Mackay and Brogan Campbell.

My Take
I've been so looking forward to reading this story, assuming it would be as nauti and suspenseful to read as her Nauti Boys series.

The characters are wonderful, as always, and I love the whole B&B scenario. But the story itself is so contrived and the reasons Leigh provides as to why Homeland Security wants

I just cant with the names, and after reading some reviews, seems like the names are the least of my concerns.

Still, in my country people name their kids weird sht, but naming someone "Dawg"? Like 90 jargon for dog/pal/friend/comrade. Natches makes me think of nachas= butt cheeks in spanish.

Also preachy & wrong about 1) the morning after pill 2) abortion? Extra layer of yikes. Plus all the misoginy? Not my cup of tea.

First in a new series by Lora Leigh involving in some ways my favorite Nauti boys? I'm in! The Nauti series was one of the first romantic suspense stories I ever read so it really holds a special place in my heart. They are all alpha males with lots of attitude, dominance, confidence and guns on occasion. I was very excited about this series because I thought we would be reading about their daughters. Which is not the case. Don't ask me why I thought th

The day Dawg Mackay’s four young sisters and their young mother whom he’d never heard suddenly are brought to him for help, he and his cousins, Natches and Rowdy, could not resist. They always took care of their family.

When his eldest sister, Eve, now twenty-four falls for Brogan Campbell, Dawg makes her promise not to get involved with him, because he was a traitor and a thief. Eve knew this wasn’t true and so does Dawg, but he doesn’t want Brogan to hurt her.

Of course, she breaks her promise a
Nauti Temptress just outright confused me. I swear I'm not always this dense but I don't know what the plot or conflict was besides from Brogan and Eve having sex and being uber angsty. It wasn't bad sex or anything but nothing else made sense to me and the book seemed to really fly by. Then Dawg (his name makes me scrunch up my face every single time) made me more confused. So he knew about Brogan but then he..... And why did he ask her to do that???? And why... I don't know but I'm just one bi ...more

I can't be the only one who's like, 'Oh, half-sisters, how convenient.' There's nothing really new here, just erotica built around a flimsy plot framework. You could pretty much make a Lora Leigh checklist and tick off boxes as you read.

Hero in the military or government agency? Check.
Hero has either similarly aged male blood relatives or coworkers? Check.
Said hero is dominating in and out of bed? Check.
Heroine and hero fall for each other at first glance? Check.

I would like to rate this awful but I won't. I just found nothing about this couple compelling and I was immediately turned off even by the original Nauti boys' behavior. Dawg finds out that he has long lost sisters and immediately the girls are defensive and these grown men call them "bitches"? REALLY? After that apparently Eve thinks she deserves to be treated poorly and when Brogan treats her that way most of the time she just melts into a sexual puddle. Again, REALLY?

I made it 15 chapters because I generally don't give bad reviews to books unless I really try to finish them. I could not. I hate Brogan with a fiery rage. He is not a protagonist, he is just controlling and manipulative, and in what universe is this relationship remotely healthy? Yeah, I know, it's fantasy not reality, but come on. The story is confusing, but the point of the book is the explicit sex so... On the plus side, when people tell me they loved 50 Shades and want something a little le ...more

DNF. False advertising. Borrowed audiobook from library based on blurb on OverDrive. As I was listening, I was wondering who this Eve MacSomething person was and where the hell is Abigail Foxe the FBI communications expert I was promised. I was very confused until I ran a Google search and found out that other than the name of the male protag, everything else (including the plot) is just wrong.

A very bizarre and careless mistake on the publisher's part.
