Rowdy McKay has watched Kelly Salyers grow, mature, and blossom into a strikingly beautiful woman.  During this process from coltish girl to stunning woman, Rowdy loses his heart.  After years of biding his time, he realizes that he can wait no longer.  Arriving home after leaving the Marines, Rowdy expects to see a familiar, welcoming gaze; instead he discovers that the confident woman he left is now watching him with fear-filled eyes.  With his protective instincts roused, Rowdy is determined to discover the cause of Kelly’s terror because the only alternative is to leave her alone, and that is unacceptable to this Nauti boy’s way of thinking.  

For more years than she can count, Kelly has adored Rowdy McKay.  Her love for him started innocently with hero worship during a child’s infatuation, and has grown into unconditional love and lustful desire.  In one horrific incident, the act of consummating the love that Kelly craves from Rowdy haunts her daily and her midnight fantasies have turned into uncontrollable fears.  While she wants to do nothing more than crawl into Rowdy’s strong arms and stay there forever, Kelly must first face an unknown terror.  A nameless but demented man will keep coming for her until he realizes his goal – a goal that will put Kelly in the merciless control of a madman.  

 

Every time I read a novel written by Lora Leigh, I look forward to intense sensuality and intrigue.  I expect her books to grab me by the throat and not let go.  I devoured NAUTI BOY cover to cover and everything that I expected from this talented author was delivered in spades!  I was alternately squirming in my seat and aching with compassion.  Rowdy McKay had my devotion from the moment he entered his first scene.  His protective instincts and abject devotion to Kelly made me fall in love with this commanding and intense character.  I found Kelly just as intriguing.  Despite her vulnerability, Kelly is a true fighter.  Her strength in the face of such devastating circumstances had me cheering her on from the sidelines. 

 

NAUTI BOY makes me yearn for more stories about this family of naughty cousins and the women they will eventually love.  I look forward to each and every novel Ms. Leigh offers! Capable of writing a variety of genres, Lora Leigh is one author I will never get tired of reading.   

NAUTI BOY will release in March 2007 from Berkley HEAT.
