True heroes will do anything to protect the women they love...

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.


Raul Sá is trying to find his place as the newest member of the Search and Protect Corporation. The team is a K9 training unit and its members handle very serious situations. His partner is his extremely loyal German Shepherd Dog Taz. His very first mission is in Hawaii and it is a doozy.

Mali Siri doesn't have an easy job as a professional researcher. However, when her research team is abducted she needs help, and can think of no one else to call but her sister Arin, part of an exclusive team. When she makes the call, Raul answers the phone and immediately responds to her pleas for help.

Mali is a bit uncertain when Raul and his intense dog arrive, but she has no choice but to trust him. Actually, Raul is just about as intense as his dog, and handles just about every situation with extreme accuracy. Along the way, the other team members and their canine partners are on hand when needed. Meanwhile, Mali and Raul face an incredible attraction to one another.

As things intensify while searching for Mali's team, it becomes incredibly apparent that she is in grave danger. It was rather nice seeing the relationship blossom, because besides the intense danger, it didn't help matters at all that Mali's sister Arin and Raul are best friends. Arin is just as protective to Mali as Raul is to her, even if it means that Arin doesn't want Raul and Mali to get any closer than necessary.

Total Bravery is a terrific addition to a successful series. The team and each relationship as it is developed is done well. Despite the serious nature of this particular story, it has a really good conclusion.This book was very engaging, and one that I completed in one sitting. I look forward to each successive story.

This is the fourth book in the series. Other books are Extreme Honor, Ultimate Courage, Winter Valor (novella), Absolute Trust, Fierce Justice and Forever Strong. Each book contains a separate story, with recurring characters, yet they do well as standalones.
