Natches Mackay and Chaya Dane shared an incredibly strong bond that no one could comprehend or fully understand. When she showed up in their small quiet community last year, no one would have guessed that Natches had rescued Chaya from her captors while being tortured in Iraq years before. He was returning from a sniper mission when he was alerted she was being held. There was never any question as to what he would do, so he went in and rescued her. That was such a horrible time for them both, and he didn't think it could get any worse until he had to hold her while she witnessed her daughter's death. Her husband was a traitor, and was using their daughter as leverage to get the information she had retrieved on her mission. Natches and Chaya in an inordinately short amount of time had developed intense feelings for each other.
After a year's absence since their last encounter, Chaya was back, and Natches wanted to know what she was involved in. He allowed her to leave him twice before, but now he was claiming her as his, and would not allow her to leave him again. The powerful chemistry they had didn't diminish at all, it just intensified, and before they had time to get a grasp on their feelings, the passion burned out of control. Natches knew he needed to get to the bottom of what was going down in Somerset, but he needed to be with Chaya right now. He, Dawg, and Rowdy could feel that something big was brewing, and not just follow-up as she had said. As pieces started to fall into place, Natches realized the man that sired him posed the greatest threat of all. When violence escalated against Chaya, he knew something must be done. He was determined to keep all those he loved safe, and would gladly sacrifice his own life to make that happen. In fact he didn't see any other way.
What a great third book in the Nauti series!! This is my favorite by far. Chaya and Natches are such a compelling couple. She challenges him, and is his equal in everything, so it is exciting to see her stand her ground with him. That is what he needed in his life. I couldn't believe how their story started, and the horror she had to live through. This emotional intense story brought tears to my eyes more than once. The writing was good in both earlier books, but this one surpassed them both. As in the other books, it was important that the whole gang was involved since they are so much a part of each other. This powerful story was gripping, but on the other hand, the erotic scenes were hot enough to scorch. Steamy doesn't even begin to describe it! It is such a treat to be immersed completely in a story that has it all.
