Angel Calloway isn't the girl next door. Known for being rude and cursing like a sailor on a bender, she's meaner than the two mercenaries she's followed since she was young. Needing anyone is not what she's about. Or

I think it's time to admit that this author just doesn't do it for me anymore. I loved her earlier books, but sadly they've become a you read one, you've read them all. Everything is the same. The sex sounds the same. The banter sounds the same. The characters all sound the same. If I had to read the word "pleasure" one more time, I was pretty sure I'd chuck my kindle at the wall. The story was entertaining and had it not been for the formulaic writing, perhaps I would have felt engage
Angel, the lost child of Chaya Mackay, has come back with a vengeance. Some have speculated her parentage, some have proof but nothing will compare to the moment she comes face to face with the mother that has stood against her and her secrets are revealed!

Explosive, heartbreaking and fired by a passion that just can’t be denied, Angel’s and Reece’s romance had me white-knuckle reading.

Leigh's writing hits an emotional cord that few sexier reads even come close to. She created lots of steam whil

Maybe my attention wasn't as focused on this book as I needed it to be, or maybe I don't remember these characters like I thought I did, but whatever the case I felt so lost during this book. I can't even describe it, I was just very detached from these characters and I never felt a connection between them. Not even with Angel and the rest of the Mackay family.

This author was one of the first that I read when I got into reading more so I'll always count her as

"Nauti Angel" is the story of Angel and Duke.

So if you're a fan of the Nauti Mackays, you are already aware of who Angel supposedly is.
We know Chaya-Natches' backstory, and what happened to their child Bliss in the previous books, as well as Chaya's heartbreaking past.

As suspicion mounts about Angel's identity, she's forced to reveal herself in order to protect her half sister Bliss. Angel grew up in war torn countries, adopted by a kind couple when her mother allegedly leaves her to die. She l

This book was amazing! Angel reminded me of Jennifer Garner from Alias. She was totally kick a$$ and I loved reading the scenes where she was in fighter mode. Actually, the whole cast of characters in this series was fascinating to me. Each and every one of them know how of to fight and protect. The bond and the loyalty they showed each other is rare to find. Nauti Angel was emotional and had heart. And let me tell you, this author know hows to bring a couple together.

If you haven't yet read the Nauti series you might not understand why I love them so much. But once you give them a try you'll get it. Yes they have all the heat that Leigh is known for, but we all know that sex isn't the only thing to a good story.

In fact, for me it rates pretty low on the list. I enjoy it, I just don't need it to get into a story. I'll give you a heads up right now, this series and her Nauti Girl

Lora you are such a biotch for making me ugly cry! The emotions jumped off these pages and straight into my heart.

Angel's story, as we knew, would not be pretty. There were bumps and scrapes and so many scars. Watching the story unfold from her eyes was filled with so much pain. Angel doesn't have to go it alone though. She has Duke to lean on (very reluctantly and stubborn like) but hey, the sex is scorching hot.

In this book we get to revisit Natches and Chaya, and I don't mean a peek. No, we

I have loved this series so much and Nauti Angel is the last one and I think I love it the best. This book tells of Angel who really is the child Beth that her mother Chaya was told was dead 20 years ago. Chaya for twenty year has kept a bedroom that looked like the one where she left Angel when she was 3, and every year has cried on her daughter's birthday and Christmas for her baby Beth.

I was a big fan of the early Nauti books, but it has been a long time since I read them. I thought I would try to jump back into the series with the latest installment, Nauti Angel, and I ended up having a hard time with it. I couldn't remember quite what happened in those earlier books, and I have obviously missed what has been happening with the Mackays over the last few books of this spinoff series.

Our heroine is a rough and tumble kickass mercenary chick, at only 23 years old. She has been

Say it ain't so! Is this the last in the Nauti Series? When Ms. Leigh expanded this series from Nauti boys to girls, I squeed in delight. The MacKay boys were steamy hawt men who suffered at the hands of those who should have loved and cared for them. Determined to shower the next generation with love and protection, the Nauti Girls were sheltered by their overprotective male relatives. There are hints this is the last in the series and that would be a sad day, even if I understand it. This late ...more

This book was a much welcomed treat when it hit my kindle. I know it takes time to cultivate perfection, but the waiting was killing me. Lora Leigh is like a romance goddess in my eyes. I could hardly wait to go back to Somerset Kentucky and get lost in the Nauti world.

Every couple of years I try to read a Laura Leigh novel, hoping beyond hope that she’s gotten better as an author and a storyteller. And every couple years I am absolutely disappointed in how awful the book was. This was one of the worst novels I’ve read in the last couple of years! The characters personalities flipped flopped so much I got whiplash. The protagonist, Angel, was tutor to be a strong independent fighter and yet all I saw was a whiny bitch crying over how much her mother didn’t lov ...more

Two mercenaries known for butting heads finally given in to temptation. New York Times bestselling author and one of my favorites, Lora Leigh wraps her Nauti series up beautifully with Nauti Angel, and the long awaited, at least for me, story of Angel and Duke.

Angel Calloway is rude. She curses like a sailor and is just downright mean at times. Raised by and around mercenaries her whole life, she fits in perfectly. She doesn’t need anyone. T

Angel Calloway can beat most men at war just with a knife but even though she seems to have no soul she wants to protect her sister Bliss. When Angel's father stole her cousin Jenny and herself and took them to Iraq it was to make her mother Chaya pay but the hotel was bombed and Jenny died and her father left her. Her name was Beth then and she was found by a big dog and taken back to some people who would become her family because she had none. Angel had never known love since she was a little ...more

Duke and Angel have an action packed story line with a hint of stubbornness from both sides! I enjoyed this story from the get go. It pulled at my heart strings as this was a past story with a Chay and Natchez.

I can’t wait for more!

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

This book was a good addition to this series. Love those Mackay's and Duke is such a sexy, wonderful hero. I enjoyed it. For someone so young Angel has been through so much. She is such an awesome and strong character! Lora does a wonderful job with all of her characters as usual.
Charged up with action and suspense this book was intense and read very quickly for me.

Wow ! Lora Leigh surprised me so good with this book.

I never saw the twist coming in this one. Not at all but then that's not unusual for this tricksy author. It seems like she blows my mind with every book. The bones of this emotional plot went back to Natches and Chaya in Nauti Dreams so it will be a must read for followers of this series. This book was super special to me even as Lora Leigh spun a story that emotionally gutted me in the beginning. It definitely strung me along on the edge an

As a longtime fan of the Nauti series, I was very excited when I heard about this book because I loved Chaya and Natches story.  The heroine in this one, Angel, is Chaya's long lost daughter.  While it's been a while since I've read the older Nauti books, it didn't take long for memories to come back to me.  What I struggled with following the story in this one was because I've skipped reading some of the spin off series and I missed some of the backstory for the romance setup between the he ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I fell in love with Rowdy, Dawg and Natches many years ago and am still in love with the Mackay clan today. Lora Leigh's ability to write complex and complicated story-lines over multiple generations is astounding.

Their family has overcome a lot over the years, but the most heartbreaking was Chaya's loss of her 3 year old daughter many years ago. Putting on a happy face for so many years was hard, but she and Natches built

Angel and Duke’s story has been percolating for a while and I couldn’t wait to see how their relationship unfolded! This author knows how to convey emotion, to bring the reader right into the hearts and minds of her characters, and I knew these two had a lot to say, and feel….

Ironically, Angel was determined to protect her family, despite not feeling like she had one herself. She was doggedly single-minded, relentless in that goal and nothing was going to get in her way. Some

Nauti Angel by Lora Leigh is part of the Nauti series and will invoke all kinds of emotions in readers. One of my favorite books ever is actually Nauti Dreams, which is book two and revolves around Natches and Chaya and in Nauti Angel, they are a focal point, as well. See, Chaya had a daughter many years ago, but she though she died in a bombing…but in Nauti Angel, we find out differently. So MANY EMOTIONS!

Nauti Angel is an emotional romantic suspense that will engage you on multiple levels. Angel Calloway has come through hell and is tough as nails. Duke is tough as nails except when it comes to Angel. He is by her side during this emotionally and physically tough time. Angle can handle the physical but the emotional may just be too much for her to handle. Thankfully Duke has broad shoulders and will help her through it. Break out the tissues and enjoy.

Ninth in the Nauti sexy romantic suspense series and revolving around the Mackay very extended family. The couple focus is on Angel Calloway and Duke Mackay.

My Take
It’s a frickin’ melodramatic soap opera what with all the snap judgments and Angel moaning on and on and on about how her mother betrayed her all those years ago!

No, it's not all the sex. I get that Leigh is all about the sex and weaves a story around it in order to connect it up. But what I object to is the incomplete jumpiness of Na

Nauti Angel is simply Lora Leigh at her best. It is chock full of emotion, suspense, panty-melting sex scenes and characters you want to crawl through the pages and meet.

Everyone knew Beth Dane, Chaya's daughter by a previous marriage was killed in a blast at a hotel in Iraq at age three-they even had the DNA results to prove it. So when Angel Calloway claims Chaya's daughter Bliss as her sister, neither Chaya nor Bliss's father believe her. It takes Duke McKay, who has fought by Angel's side at
