Financier turned activist Emanuel Duarte has promised he would find the one witness who can testify against real estate developer Silas Lancaster. Sick of having every attempt at exposing Silas shut down, Emanuel wants to honor a promise he made, and takes from his opponent what matters most—his beautiful daughter Erika. Only he gets more than he bargained for with the tempting—and frustrating—woman.
Fundraiser and socialite Erika Lancaster can’t believe she’s been kidnapped. Her sexy captor is feeding her lies about her father that she refuses to swallow. Emanuel’s plans will hurt her and ruin her mother’s legacy—and that she can’t allow. Desperate to find a way out of the lush Brazilian jungle, she decides there’s only way to disarm the enemy—seduce him.
But her plan backfires and soon she realizes that seducing the enemy comes with a hefty price…loving the enemy simply isn’t an option.
I was interested in Carmen Falcone’s Brazilian Capture for two reasons. One) our hero is Brazilian and the story is set in the Amazon, and Two) it’s a captor/captee story. I always love to see how the hero/heroine overcomes the captive scenario and fall for each other. This story doesn’t disappoint!
I really adored Erika. She’s so clever and a few times I found myself sitting as close to my kindle as I could, laughing at her daring. She’s always looking for a way out, but she also approaches her situation carefully and thoughtfully. Erika’s a worthy opponent and one that keeps our hero on his toes!
Then there’s Emanuel who tries to keep up with our heroine with his Portuguese accent and his mystery and sex appeal…The heat was drifting off this guy’s skin!
But Erika and Emanuel both have hearts of gold too. Emanuel wants to do right by the family he promises to help—going so far as to kidnap Erika. He also wants to right his own past wrongs. And Erika’s the head of a foundation in her mother’s name, combating this new information about her father. Her loyalty pulls her one way, but Emanuel’s nature and his insistence pull her another.
The suspense was just alive and kicking. Though the connection does happen fairly quickly, it’s set up in a way that I believed, and it amped the attraction between them. I loved both of these characters, and together, they were dynamite.

ABOUT CARMEN FALCONE
Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beats doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband—living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her deepest passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps talking about. When she’s not lost in the world of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line.
