Eagle is a common name for some members of the bird family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are large, powerfully built birds of prey, with a heavy head and beak. Even the smallest eagles, like the Booted Eagle or Red-tailed Hawk, have relatively longer and more evenly broad wings, and more direct, faster flight - despite the reduced size of aerodynamic feathers. Most eagles are larger than any other raptors apart from some vultures.
Eagles are one of my favourite animals so I painted one :)
The eagle is also the symbol of my football club: Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Because You Are Mine
by Beth Kery
"From Beth Kery, the national bestselling author of Explosive, comes a red-hot romance like no other--where the rules of attraction are broken with that first electrifying touch. Meet Francesca and Ian. The fantasies of what's to come begin...
Because You Are Mine, an exciting tale of erotic obsession divided in 8 parts with 2 chapters.
Because You Tempt Me is the first part and it starts with that first look, when you know you have to have him... Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centerpiece painting for the lobby of Ian Noble's new skyscraper. It's at a cocktail party in her honor that she first meets him--and the attraction is immediate for Francesca. It's also bewildering. She's not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.
For Ian, she's the kind of woman he can't resist--one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what she's never had--a man who gets what he wants."
I liked this book, but I have to say that it looks like "fifty shades", with a domineering billionaire and a struggling student taking centre stage. I found the story a little predictable and familiar, as so many books in this genre have the same kind of storyline, but I only let go of the chapters after i read them all.
