As a protagonist there isnt any that come to mind, however I know that Rynns World (brand new released only 3 weeks ago) is about the Crimson Fist homeworld being invaded by a Waaaghh. Also my favourite book, Brothers of the Snake has a nice piece about the Iron Snakes tacking an entire Waaagh also.
There is loads of Orky stories but unfortunately none which have them as the goodies (protangnists)

Not a full book (I wish Games Workshop would contact me, as I can write for Orks and work cheap ^_^), but there is a pretty cool 5 issue comic series called 'Blood and Thunder', about an Ork army, told from the perspective of a captive Imperial soldier.

This may not be EXACTLY what you're looking for, but the collection titled Imperial Guard Omnibus: Volume One contains three novels where the ig are fighting orks. Although the stories are all from the perspective of humans, the collection does feature lots of good ork'ey action.
Is that enough plot? ^_^
Seriously though, I think it'd be a little difficult to make a whole coherent story using nothing besides Orks. I'd definitely have to throw in another race for them to temporary ally with. The Imperial Guard always works, although the Eldar might be more interesting.
Still though, life is way too busy right now for writing on that scale. I just throw in a mini-Ork story in front of my 'You're better off with grots' articles.

I've often wanted to write an Ork novel.. but work, school, booze, and women have me tied down pretty tight.. I have thought about the implications of such a writing though, and it'd be difficult in the least. An entire story told via Ork perspective would be.. hard to follow.. lol.
Here's what I have.. as the rough idea for a novel.
The novel is comprised mainly of the journaling of a smartboy, who is the centric protagonist, and these documents have somehow been acquired by the Ordos Xenos.. translated as best as possible, and including excerpts of other Imperial documents which pertain to the very same events that take place, to provide a clear overview of the goings on. The novel is "written", much like the Ciaphus Cain series come to think of it, by an Inquisitor of the Ordos Xenos, as to provide a case study on the Ork mentality. The exposition pits Imperial commentary, and many assumptions about Orks, against the actual word of an Ork.. the conclusion of which, is that while many of the Imperium's opinions of the Orks are well founded (mostly pertaining to one of these five topics: stompin, burpin, cursin, shootin, or speedin), there is also something much more devious, cunning, and sinister, something that suggests Imperial tacticians have long underestimated the Orks.

I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.
