ARC Review: In Isabeau's Eyes by Lora Leigh

Danger is stalking Isabeau Boudreaux. After the deaths of her parents ten years ago during a violent attack that left her blind, remnants of her vision are returning. But a series of accidents has convinced her friends the Mackays of Somerset, Kentucky, that someone wants her dead. When a roadside blowout proves to be almost fatal for Isabeau and her good friend Angel, Angel’s brother mercenary Tracker Calloway knows this was no accident.

After a particularly bloody job, the last thing Tracker wants to do is get involved. But whoever is after Isabeau almost hurt his sister, and Isabeau is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. Tracker is determined to protect her but knows staying away from Isabeau is impossible. He begins a steady seduction to tempt the innocent woman into a world of hunger like she could have never imagined. And keeping her is the only option—if he can save her from an unknown enemy as her sight begins to slowly return.
This was a wonderful read for many reasons. One being the fact that I got to visit with one of my favorite families. I see a reread in my future. If you haven't yet read the Nauti series I would go back and read them. Yes you don't need to read them to read this one but you are really missing out. 

I've been looking forward to this one for a long time. Or at least it seems like a long time. I miss with Lora Leigh isn't writing. I really enjoy her stories and find them to be well written and sexy as hell. Her heroes are strong alpha men would do anything to protect those that they love. Her heroines are just as kick ass and strong. They don't sit on the sideline and wait to be taken care of. 

In Isabeau's Eyes is the first in a new series buy her but is in the same world as her Nauti books. You'll love both Isabeau and Tracker. These two go through a ton of crap before they come out on the other side. 

Isabeau is friends with the Mackay's and has been since she was a young kid. Sadly, her life hasn't been an easy one since the death of her parents and her almost dying when shot in the head. Because of all she has gone through she really hasn't lived her life. She has a bunch of crap that has happened as she's grown and a older brother who has done his best to keep her protected. Being blind only adds up to the long list of things she has had to work through.

Tracker is probably one of scariest heroes I've read. Most of that is due to the fact that he doesn't really care about himself anymore. He just does his job (one he does well) and moves on to the next. He doesn't really live. I'm very sad for him. He does love his sister and would do anything for her. That's includes protecting a woman who almost got his sister killed. 

In Isabeau's Eyes is an action-packed story that keeps moving from page one. Not only will you enjoy the whole mystery of what happened to Isabeau's parents you'll also be part of Tracker and Isabeau falling in love. 

I really enjoyed this story and felt it was well worth the wait. I think though I enjoyed it so much because I know who all the players are or most of them. I think if you go into this book without that knowledge then it might not be as good of a story for you as it was for me. I would think it would go one of two ways. You'll feel totally lost like you are missing something or you'll rush to read the Nauti Boys and Nauti Girls series. Either way you are in for a treat.
