As the newest recruit at Search and Protect, Raul has a lot to prove. Luckily, he's got the best friend and partner a man could ask for: a highly trained, fiercely loyal German Shepherd Dog named Taz. Together, Raul and Taz make an unbeatable team. But their first mission in Hawaii really puts them to the test when an international kidnapping ring sets its sights on the bravest woman Raul's ever met . . .

Mali knows her latest job has put one hell of a target on her back. And on this small island paradise, there's nowhere to hide. With a service dog like Taz, Mali feels safe. Sharing close quarters with a smoldering muscle-for-hire like Raul, she feels something else - an unexpected wave of desire. Raul feels it too. But when the kidnappers make their move, he's got to turn that slow-burning passion into hard-hitting action - and save the life of the woman he loves.

Opinião: "A Decisão Final do Major Pettigrew"

Título original: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Autor: Helen Simonson
Tradutor: Ana Figueira
Editor: Civilização Editora
Edição/reimpressão: Agosto de 2011
ISBN: 9789722633727
Páginas: 400

Sinopse: O Major Ernest Pettigrew não está interessado nas frivolidades do mundo moderno. Desde a morte da mulher, Nancy, ele tenta evitar as coscuvilheiras da aldeia, o seu ganancioso filho e a cada vez mais evidente suburbanização do campo inglês, preferindo levar uma vida calma defendendo os valores tradicionais mantidos há várias gerações.

Porém, quando a morte do irmão desencadeia uma amizade inesperada com a Sr.ª Ali, uma viúva paquistanesa, dona da loja da aldeia, o Major é arrastado do seu mundo disciplinado e forçado a confrontar as realidades da vida no século XXI. Unidos pelo amor à literatura e pela perda dos respetivos cônjuges, o Major e a Sr.ª Ali cedo descobrem que a sua amizade se está a transformar em algo mais profundo. Mas, embora o Major tenha nascido em Lahore e a Sr.ª Ali em Cambridge, a sociedade da aldeia insiste em considerá-lo um verdadeiro inglês e a ela como uma permanente estrangeira. O Major sempre teve um orgulho especial na sua aldeia, mas como irão os caóticos acontecimentos recentes afetar a sua relação com o local que ele considera o seu lar?

Escrito com uma perceção aguda e um encantador sentido de humor, este livro é uma história de amor enternecedora com um inesquecível elenco de personagens, e questiona o que cada um deve sacrificar da sua felicidade pessoal a favor das obrigações familiares e dos valores tradicionais.

Opinião: "Fall Fast"

Autor: Zoe York
Série: SEALs Undone #5
Editor: Auto-publicado
Edição/reimpressão: Setembro de 2015
ASIN: B014LQ12X2
Formato: Ebook (Kindle)
Páginas: 101
Origem: Oferecido pela autora em troca de uma opinião honesta

Sinopse: just one night... 
Navy SEAL Nathan Meyers and recent divorcee (as of an hour ago) Emme Ryan both want a night of escape from their real lives, for very different reasons. A chance meeting and a single drink at an airport bar turns into a night of unexpected fun and pleasure when a freak snow storm keeps them on the ground. But when morning comes, will they stick to the rules they set out at the start of the night?

A minha opinião: Este é o quinto livro da série The SEALs Undone, mas tal como os outros, pode perfeitamente ser lido sem ter lido os anteriores.

Desta vez a história começa no aeroporto de Chicago, onde o SEAL da Marinha Americana Nathan Meyers se encontra à espera de voo para regressar a casa. Contudo, uma tempestade de neve cancela todos os voos e é no bar do aeroporto que ele conhece Emme Ryan, uma comissária de bordo que pretende aproveitar o facto de não poder voar para beber e esquecer o facto de estar oficialmente divorciada...

Acabam por passar a noite juntos, mas com o entendimento de que será apenas uma noite e que, na manhã seguinte, ambos seguirão a sua vida. O que não será difícil, uma vez que nem sequer sabem o nome um do outro... Mas aquela noite é o prenúncio de algo muito bom, e Nathan resolve deixar-lhe bilhetes com o seu nome e email, na esperança de que ela o resolva contactar. O que ela eventualmente faz.

E assim se desenvolve uma relação à distância que surge de forma muito natural e sem qualquer tipo de pressões ou exigências. O Nathan percebe que a Emme precisa de controlar o que acontece e dá-lhe o tempo e o espaço de que ela precisa para isso. Foi muito bonito de ver...

Mais uma vez a autora conseguiu, em poucas páginas, criar uma história muito rica e com um pormenor impressionante para a dimensão que o livro tem. E conseguiu novamente criar uma relação escaldante e amorosa ao mesmo tempo!

Opinião: "Counterbalance"

Autor: Kelly Moran
Editor: KDP
Edição/reimpressão: Março de 2017
Páginas: 256
Origem: Recebido gratuitamente em troca de uma opinião sincera

Sinopse: She’s a beauty, but he’s just a geek.

The world might think billionaire Xavier Gaines has it all, but he’s got a big problem. His successful software company is about to sign a government contract that’ll land him smack in the glare of the public limelight, and his lifelong battle with social anxiety has marked him as a cold, uncaring bastard in the eyes of the press. To dispel the unflattering image, he needs help, and there’s only one person he trusts with the job—Peyton Smoke. Gorgeous, kind, and funny, she agrees to be his media relations director and soon imbeds herself so deeply in his life, his world will crumble if anything upsets the balance. He cannot screw up their solid unit. No matter how achingly he desires her. Yet, how is he supposed to resist when she tugs emotions from him he didn’t think he was capable of experiencing? Especially since it appears he’s not the only one fighting their undeniable attraction.

Ever-after just might be possible...if he can convince her to believe in love again.

Peyton Smoke is looking for a change, and working at Gaines Industries has given her the boost she needs to fill the empty void in her life. Xavier is the perfect boss. Under his seemingly callous, frigid demeanor lies a compassionate man who cares about causes and those precious few he lets into his inner circle. What she wasn’t prepared for is the smoldering passion suddenly flaring between them, nor the hot-as-sin alpha side beneath the layer of sexy nerd. Getting involved with him puts more than her job at risk. She’s been trampled one too many times, and she vowed never to leave herself vulnerable again. But the heart wants what the heart wants. If only she can figure out whether his feelings are genuine or if this is a mistaken case of gratitude wrapped in lust, then their shot at forever may not seem like such a fruitless hope.

A minha opinião: Counterbalance é uma história de amigos que se apaixonam e eu costumo adorar essas histórias... Esta não foi excepção!

Xavier Gaines pode ser um bilionário dono de uma empresa de software bem sucedida, mas não deixa de ter problemas. É que está prestes a assinar um contracto governamental que o vai deixar na luz da ribalta e ele não lida bem com a pressão do público, uma vez que sofre de ansiedade social. Por isso decide contratar alguém que para o ajudar na área das Relações Públicas. Mas não quer qualquer pessoa, ele quer Peyton Smoke para o lugar. Afinal, eles foram amigos na escola, quando ele era um "totó" dos computadores e ela uma miúda popular...

Peyton está à procura de uma mudança e a proposta de Xavier parece ser mesmo aquilo de que precisa. E a verdade é que Peyton consegue operar milagres em Xavier e a sua imagem pública depressa se transforma sob as indicações dela. E a amizade de ambos continua onde a haviam deixado...

Contudo, dois anos depois tanto um como o outro se começam a aperceber que a amizade parece ter desabrochado em algo mais. A atracção é para lá de intensa, mas têm ambos medo de arriscar. Xavier porque tem plena consciência de que depende de Peyton para funcionar socialmente e, se arriscar e a perder, pode acabar por perder aquilo por que trabalhou toda a vida; Peyton porque jurou não voltar a apaixonar-se, não dando, assim, a mais ninguém, o poder de a magoar.

Eles bem tentam lutar contra a atracção e manter-se apenas amigos, mas já se está mesmo a ver como é que isso corre, não é?

Gostei muito da história e, principalmente dos protagonistas. E fiquei tão agradavelmente surpresa como a Peyton (ok, talvez não tanto como ela) ao descobrir o lado particularmente assertivo e dominante do Xavier...

Release Day Blitz: His To Claim by Shelly Bell

"I had to constantly remind myself to breathe. Shelly Bell packs a powerful punch with her flawless writing and suspenseful, passionate love story." --- #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas on At His Merc

Fate brought them together. Family could tear them apart.

Ryder McKay may be a playboy, but he's never been a fool. Not until he met the woman he simply knew as Jane. For one night, he dropped his guard, but in the morning she disappeared---along with a copy of his top secret technology.

When it ends up in the hands of his biggest enemy---his father---Ryder knows without a doubt he's been betrayed. And when he finds Jane again, a year later, he can't decide what's worse---that her mother is marrying his brother, or that he still finds Jane irresistible, despite the fact that she's a liar, a thief, and his father's latest protégé.

Jane Cooper does have a secret, but it's not the one Ryder thinks. As their rekindled passion changes into something deeper, they'll have to work together to untangle a web of lies and corruption that will shatter everything they thought they knew about their pasts. Because Jane's not the only one with a secret---and this secret is getting people killed.
He smiled, the skin crinkling around his eyes. Then his gaze dipped to her chest. “As much as I appreciate the peek-a-boo view of your nipples, your blouse is misbuttoned.”
Horrified, she slapped her arms over her chest. “What?” She looked down and confirmed he wasn’t joking. Somehow, she’d missed a button, allowing for a huge gap in the fabric, and since she barely filled a B-cup, she hadn’t bothered with a bra. How many others had she inadvertently flashed?
She closed her eyes and sighed. So much for making a good impression. Everyone was probably laughing behind her back. “Fuck me.”
Ryder grabbed her hand and pulled her from the pillar. “Usually I prefer a bit more banter, but I’m game.”
Her eyes flew open as she stumbled forward, slamming into a hard wall of muscle. His arm encircled her waist, helping her regain her balance. She clutched his sweater in her hands. God, he smelled good. “I’m sorry?”
He looked perplexed, one of his eyebrows shooting up while the other remained in place. “You asked me to fuck you.”
“I didn’t,” she said, her protest coming out much weaker than she’d intended.
Damn him. He confused her with that quick-witted tongue of his.
She clenched her thighs together, picturing him putting that tongue to better use. Crap, I shouldn’t be thinking that. What’s wrong with me? “That was me…I mean, I—”
He pressed a finger to her lips, silencing her stammering. “Tell me the truth. Do you or do you not want me to fuck you?”
Was that a trick question? She didn’t think there was a woman in the room who wouldn’t want Ryder in their bed. He removed his finger, giving her the chance to reply. “I…I don’t even know you.”
“What better way to get to know someone than by fucking them?”
The way he said fucking made her hot and needy. “Um…a conversation?”
He chuckled, the sound of it like a caress between her legs. “You want a conversation? How about this?” His arms tightened around her waist and he pulled her closer, letting her feel the full effect of his desire for her against her hip. “If I don’t get my mouth on your pussy within the next five minutes, I’m going to stand on top of the bar and tell everyone you crashed the conference without paying.”
