Your treat today is from the fabulous Rosanna Leo. You have a peek at her brand new release in the Gemini Island Shifters series.
Thanks so much to the lovely Daisy for hosting me on my blog tour for Predator’s Trinity, Gemini Island Shifters 6, my latest paranormal romance.
I’m thrilled to be able to introduce this installment of my shape shifter romance series, especially because the series took a turn even I did not expect. It’s wonderful when a subplot takes on a life of its own, demanding to be heard, and that’s what happened with this book.
I’ve written my shifter books, as I’ve done with all my books, as stand alones. Each book is the story of a new couple (or menage, in this case), and you can read them out of order. Of course, my readers agree it’s best to read in order. However, by the time I got to book 3, an insidious evil began to take root in my mind, forming the basis of an exciting subplot. Even as I resolved certain aspects in each book (I always provide a “happily ever after”) this new subplot forced itself to the forefront. The evil will be vanquished in this book, but the series will continue with two more romances after this one, to provide resolution for all the characters.
I was surprised and delighted to see a new turn of events. Not only was the series injected with some sinister moments, I really feel it drove the action to new heights. So far, readers are telling me it’s their favorite of the books. And all because of a nasty wolf shifter who pushed his way into my consciousness, and into my protagonists’ lives.
I do hope you enjoy Predator’s Trinity and that you have a chance to explore the whole series.
Librarian Suzan Marsh is an empath and has always felt assaulted by the feelings of others. She has had to distance herself from the people in her life, raising a mental barrier to ward off unwanted emotions. When wolf shifter August Crane abducts her, he breaks through the walls she constructed, forcing her to accept a frightening new truth.
Jaguar shifter twins Percy and Byron Moon are familiar with the evil ways of August Crane. Because of him, their childhood was destroyed. Because of him, their way of life at the peaceful Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort is threatened. And they won’t rest until he is dead.
When Crane drags Suzan into his cult and decides to make her his “concubine,” Percy and Byron know they must save the human woman. Their connection to her is strong and they cannot deny the dream they always held close. That they could share a woman and make her their mate.
But even after rescuing Suzan, none of them are free from Crane’s clutches. The wolf shifter has plans, ones that involve the demise of every shape shifter at the Ursa Resort. Not only must Percy and Byron keep Suzan safe, they must convince her to accept them both. In order to stop Crane from hurting everyone they love, they must learn to fight together.
After her shower, she toweled off and dressed in the clothes provided, choosing a pretty green V-neck T-shirt to accompany the jeans. Everything fit perfectly, from underwear to outerwear, as if the Moons had already known her. It boggled her mind, but she couldn’t lose the sensation they were connected by more than just circumstance. Her instincts never lied. After slipping into a pair of soft white socks, she made her way toward the kitchen.
She heard Byron and Percy before she saw them and stopped to catch an excited breath. When she heard what they said, she paused a moment longer.
“How’s your jaguar holding up?” Byron asked his brother.
She knew it was Byron. Despite them being identical twins, there were slight differences in their voices. Byron’s was the smoother voice. Percy’s had the odd touch of sexy gravel.
“My dumb cat,” replied Percy on a near growl, “was up all night long. He keeps pawing at me, trying to get to her.”
Her? As the burn of jealousy sizzled in Suzan’s gut, she gnawed on her bottom lip in a futile attempt to quell it. Maybe Percy had a girlfriend and he was dying to see her. Maybe he couldn’t wait to escape the cabin so he could meet up with this woman and, well, let his jaguar loose.
“Yeah,” Byron said. “My cat’s in agony, too. I think my ribs are black and blue inside, it pounds them so much.”
Oh, great. She wasn’t sure why this information astounded her. Of course men like them would have girlfriends. Hell, they might have mates. She hadn’t bothered to ask, had she? She’d already heard the mate bond was a powerful thing, that it would drive any shifter to distraction, both sexually and emotionally. Why had she been naïve enough to think these men might be single? She knew enough to know the good ones were always taken.
She’d been so stupid to think they had a bond. Bullshit. Clearly, her empathic tendencies had let her down for the first time.
“I can’t believe how quickly my jag … recognized Suzi,” said Percy.
Oh. Last she heard, she was the only Suzi around here.
Byron grunted. “I feel the same way. I’ve never felt like this. My head’s not working properly. Fuck, I couldn’t even hold a bowl of eggs without losing it. Percy, we need to discuss things. Seriously.”
“If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share, we can’t afford to make any wrong moves, especially with Crane in the picture. We need to support her and not let our egos get in the way.”
If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share…
