He and the team meet up with NCIS and Pitbull discovers it's special agent Makayla Littlestar who looks like a delicate flower. He soon discovers that her looks are the only soft thing about this driven woman. She is a martial arts expert, an amazing tracker, speaks several languages and has a chip on her shoulder as big as Texas. And all he wants to do is knock it off and get under her formidable armor to the engaging, soft woman beneath. He’s determined to find out what makes her tick. When Mak is in tracking mode, she often sees nothing but the subject she’s following, but Pitbull is big, tough, and intrudes on her concentration.

Author: Joanna Frueh
When her parents died and her marriage disintegrated within the span of a few months, art historian and performance artist Joanna Frueh entered a painful period of grief and mourning. This book is about how she healed herself and in the process explored the vast range of her potential as a woman, for mind inseparable from the body, for being truly alive. ""Swooning Beauty"" is an ornate, intimate memoir of discovery and healing. Frueh's path to recovery lay through a profound examination of her intuitions, desires, fantasies, dreams, and emotions; her capacity for pleasure - visual, sensual, intellectual, gastronomic, and erotic; and her sense of her own heroic female identity. Hers is the passionate voice of a creative, intelligent woman scrutinizing the nature of love in all its forms - including self-love - and the ways of being that make us free, flexible, more fully real and more fully human. The result is an engaging view into the rich and colorful inner life of a woman at the threshold of middle age, of the blossoming of mind and spirit that comes after suffering and self-realization. Pleasure, she concludes, ""is the absence of lack. Self-love is a necessary plenitude. Vigilance in love brings us freedom. Freedom is not an absolute whose attainment is humanly impossible. Yogis say that the self that is not ego is free. That self is the spacious heart, the spacious mind."" Frueh offers us wisdom and comfort for the journey into middle age, and the deep pleasure of encountering a generous, lively spirit and a remarkably spacious mind.
