Danger and seduction become a constant companion in a world of intrigue, conspiracy and a deadly epidemic that threatens to destroy them all.
Fixing a broken soul is harder than you think!
Naura is #02 of 09 in the Enigma Series by Ditter Kellen. All 9 are currently published with 05 of them being in audio. The author plans for the other 4 to be in audio by the end of the year. She also plans many more after #09 at this time. Which excites me to no end!
❤ Yay! ❤
Johnny Mack narrates the series, to include all future editions.
HEA with no cliffhanger!
These are connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is more enjoyable that way, but could be taken as standalones if you absolutely insist. There would be spoilers for the earlier ones if you start in the middle.
Length: 5 hrs and 43 mins
Yes! Both in thoughts and actions, so those opposed should avoid.
None that I see.
Please let me know it you think there should be.
♥ Story ♥
Bracadyte Princess, Naura ❤ Anthony "Tony" Vaughn
----“Every day until I draw my last breath”. ----
Naura is sister to Hauke from Book #01 which makes her a princess of the Bracadytes. She took blood from Tony in that first book, therefore linking her to him forever. During this exchange, she bared witness to his memories of the horrible way his wife and son were taken from him. It is against the Bracadyte law to take blood from humans as it is also a no-no to mate with one. Hauke and Abbie barely got around this, but Abbie has to forever stay in Aukrabah. Naura knows Tony will never agree to this, but wants Tony anyway!
----“Naura differs from the rest of us. The gift she carries inside her is cemented in love and light. It cannot dwell in darkness.”----
Anthony "Tony" Vaughn is Abbie's Uncle and an ex-CIA operative. His former employment is what has led to the demise of his family, his near non-existence in the human world, and some "connections" that always seem to know what is going on behind the scenes. Tony wants Naura but fights it at every turn because he feels broken beyond repair. He worries that karma is determined to make him pay for the deeds of his past.
----“You’re not like me, Naura. You’re good and pure, and I’m all that is opposite of that. If I had met you before…before I became a monster, I would have given you everything that you deserve and more.”
Naura and Tony are joined by all the characters from Book #01 that, if you have been listening in order, should of grown to love. Braum's clever deceptions are to be commended. Gryke's bumbling of common human phrases are hysterical. Vaulcron's obsession with the "Great White Shark" reporter leaves much to look forward to. I can't wait until I can get to listen to their HEA stories!
----“Chicken,” Naura taunted with a grin.
Gryke tilted his head to the side. “What is a chicken?”
A chuckle bubbled up inside her. “It is human slang for one who is afraid.”----
The couple this time around face challenges on the personal level as well as the outside world that all seem to be stacked against them. There is more to be learned about the virus, as well as some secrets being kept by those that are trusted. Book #02 matches Book #01 in the action department and will not let you down.
----He suddenly gripped her upper arms and gave her a slight shake. “Don’t you say that.” He shook her once more. “Ever. Do you hear me? You survive. No matter what, you have to survive.”
I am glad this series is going on my Read Along With Me list because I really want to comment without spoiling something. I got a lot to vent about Henry! I really don't like him! Look for it over there hopefully soon.
----Breaking off the kiss, he stared into her amazing eyes. “I’ve never known love on this level before. It excites me and scares the hell out of me at the same time. I’m going to be overprotective, unbearable, and a royal pain in the ass. A lot. But I’ll cherish you until I draw my last breath.”

I'm so happy that Ditter Kellen has continued to release this series in audio format. My wife started reading the hard copies months ago and I've listened to a number of books from the same genre but we've never been able to agree on it series that we both like. The Enigma series is something we can both come together on!
Tony is damaged goods there's no other way to put it. From the first book there was no way to deny it. The shell of the man that he once was he falls for Naura, who uses her unique healing abilities gives him back a piece of what he once was and through that he learn to love again. I simply cannot wait to listen to the next installment of this series!

What did you love best about Naura?
I loved Narua's stubborn and passionate struggle with both her heart and her chosen mate Tony. She laid her heart and her feelings at his feet shatter the consequences. She was bound and determined to shatter his defenses because no matter what, Tony never expected her or love to capture and transform his heart and life.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Naura was my favorite character because no matter what bubble she was placed in as the King's daughter, she always fought to stand out and be true to herself. When her heart awakened to Tony, nothing could stop her from going after him and hunting down his heart. She would have him understand the depth of her feelings and intentions toward him if nothing to show him how much he meant to her. He was worth everything to her no matter what his life had been like. He was her heart.
What about Johnny Mack’s performance did you like?
I enjoyed the amazing diversity and wonderful talent at performing such a wide array of characters. He really brought each to life in a truly incredible way. His voice is so rich and deep and so entertaining to listen to and enjoy.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Everyone is worthy of love since fighting it is a desperately losing battle.
Any additional comments?
This is a tremendous addition to this fantastic series!!

This is the second story in this series loved it! Follows along from the first one and a lot of the same characters are back in this one which I really liked nice to see what happens to them all after their main story is done look my forward to hearing the next book in thrhis series
I had already read "Naura" but was given the opportunity to listen to story and the narrator makes or breaks an audio book for me. In the future i will listen to other Ditter Kellen stories, especially if narrated by Johnny Mack, but I will also listen to other books, that interest me, that Johnny Mack has narrated. Thanks!
I won this audiobook in a giveaway!
This story picks up right where What Lies Beneath ends. I loved Naura from the very first moment we are introduced to her. She is not only the baby but also the only girl in her family. She has been sheltered her entire life and the one time she is sent out in the human world she is kidnapped. Naura understands her limitations but it does not stop her from living. And one of those limitations is Uncle Tony. The two of them together is simply amazing.
Tony was introduced to us in the first book as Abby's uncle and he has been through a lot in his 42 years of life. He not only has lost seen them get murdered. He is what I like to call a tortured soul. I love a hero who has gone through life and is just trying to survive. Tony and enompasses that completely. He is wounded and he feels as though he does not deserve to be happy. He is content with going through life and waiting for it to end and that just breaks my heart. Naura understands that there is more to Tony than meets the eye. Even though he is grumpy and cranky does not mean that he does not deserve love.
I don't know why Ditter Kellen tried to redeem him but at every turn he kept showing us what a worthless father and person he is. Like the wonderful Maya Angelou quote says, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." and oh did I believe Henry the very first time he opened his mouth. I don't know what the repercussions are going to be but at this point in time I'm happy.
I am loving this series so far i can not wait to listen to more in this series
Naura had her work cut out for her with Tony but he was so worth it. Once he finally accepted that he could find love again he was so good with her. The telepathy and being able to feel each other’s emotions was so interesting. It made their relationship so much deeper. I loved it. Can’t wait to hear the rest of this series.
Just finished the second book and the plot is even more interesting and exciting. Love a story that has strong characters as this books does. The love of family and mates is hopeful.
The threat of the humans and aliens is ever in the background and the politics, who can really be trusted. Can’t wait to start the next book and see how they find a cure for the virus.
I’m sure the next love story will be just as intense.
