The first in an all new spinoff series of the New York Times bestselling Nauti Boys series, now featuring the Nauti Girls.Goodreads
The Mackay cousins—Natches, Rowdy, and Dawg—would do anything for family, so when former DHS agent Timothy Cranston drops off four sisters that Dawg never knew he had, there is no question: The cousins will protect and care for the girls, and their mother, because they’re family.
Five years later, Eve Mackay, the eldest sister, has graduated from college and settled in to life as a Mackay in Pulaski County, Kentucky. She works hard as a cocktail waitress and helps out at the bed-and-breakfast that Dawg bought for her mother. If she keeps herself busy enough, maybe she’ll be able to stay away from the man she promised Dawg she wouldn’t date, the man who has awakened her most ravenous fantasies…
He’s Brogan Campbell, a biker rumored to be a traitor and a thief. But he’s just playing a part; he came to Kentucky for a DHS mission that no one, except Cranston, is supposed to know about. Eve is the key to the whole operation, and his orders are to get her participation. But his need for Eve has nothing to do with stolen secrets and the safety of the country…
When Dawg took in Eve and her sisters, he warned them that if they ever lied, cheated, or betrayed the family, they risked losing everything. But desire and danger are locked in an inescapable embrace, and Eve has to make her choice between family or Brogan, for better or worse…

Crystal L's Thoughts:
I love Lora Leigh. I mean that unequivocally. The woman knows how to write a hot book, with hot alpha men who bare parts of their souls without seeming to sissified. Not to mention that most of the time she's really good at spinning a story with plot twists and turns that you just don't see coming. This book is a good example of that, and while it's not one of my favorite Lora Leigh books, I think it's an excellent set up to the series that she's starting with it.
The Nauti Temptress book is connected back to The Nauti Boys series that I absolutely adored. I've read Rowdy, Dawg, and Natches books like a bazillion times. Leigh did a good job of connecting the new series with the old one by bringing back consequences of the nefarious Chandler McKay (Dawg's father), when Dawg finds out that he has four teenage half sisters that he didn't know existed. The girls and their mother are now homeless after the giant take down and investigation that led to Chandler's death, and now they have no where to go. Naturally Dawg, Rowdy, and Natches take the girls and their mother in, make them family, and help them get set up in Somerset.
Flash forward a few years later and you have the oldest sister, Eve McKay who is infatuated with the one man her brother Dawg asks her to stay away from. Brogan Campbell is a biker rumored to be a traitor and a thief. Eve knows to the bottom of her soul after having hung around and spoken with Brogan for the past two and a half years that he's no traitor to his country. Dawg won't listen to her protests though and asks her to stay away from Brogan anyways. Eve loves her brother, is utterly grateful to him for helping her family out when they had nothing else, and is completely torn between her loyalty to Dawg, and the heart that only seems to beat for Brogan.
Will Eve be able to keep her word to Dawg and stay away from Brogan? Or will Eve given in to temptation and risk her relationship with her brother? This is a fab start to a new Nauti series that you should grab today. It's not necessary to read the previous Nauti Series books to understand what's going on, but I would recommend you do it anyways if you haven't already. The Nauti Boys Series is one of my favorites and the heroes in each book will practically make your toes curl they're so hawt! Four wine glass toast and I hope to see you all in Somerset, Kentucky so we can stalk to hotter than hell McKay cousins.
