I am thrilled to have Rosanna Leo here today sharing her newest book in her Gemini Island Shifters’ series. I have read all four of the previous books and loved them. I’ll be reading this one soon! Now, let’s hear from Rosanna as she shares about her newest paranormal romance, Predator’s Fire:
“MATCHMAKING FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE?”
Thank you, Monette, for allowing me to visit and spend some time with you. I always love visiting.
I’m here as part of my blog tour to celebrate the release of Predator’s Fire, Gemini Island Shifters 5. This romance begins with a mystery. Human heroine Nina Suzuki comes upon her friend best Janine in very strange circumstances. I’m not giving too much away by saying Nina is forced to come to grips very quickly with Janine’s bizarre passing. All of a sudden, our plucky heroine is thrust into the world of shape shifters, never having dreamed they could exist.
Janine tells Nina to find the mysterious Killian Moon of the Ursa Resort on Gemini Island. According to her, he is the man with all the answers. Now Nina must convince the jaguar shifter hero to share his information about the world of shifters, in order to better understand why her friend died.
I never come right out and say it in the book, but I have a suspicion Janine might have been doing some stealthy matchmaking when she counseled Nina to seek out Killian. Perhaps she knew her human pal wouldn’t be able to resist his shifter charms. Perhaps she understood Nina needed a good man in her life. Perhaps she felt an enigmatic shifter man would be the one to help Nina experience new depths of pleasure.
Of course, Janine also understood Killian would be best equipped to save Nina in the coming battle with the villainous Alpha Brethren, a vicious cult of shifters determined to destroy the tranquility of Gemini Island. As a jaguar shifter, Killian possesses great strength, the ability to stalk his prey and the strongest bite of all the great cats.
Plus he’s also rather easy on the eyes.
Yes, in retrospect, I think poor Janine did Nina a great service in sending her to Killian. Their lives were changed for the better because of her matchmaking efforts. It was a final act of love from one friend to another.
I hope you have a chance to experience all the books in this series, and that Predator’s Fire finds its way to your TBR list.
When Nina Suzuki discovers the body of her best friend Janine, her world turns upside down. Things go from bad to worse when Janine’s corpse seems to transform into that of a large, brown wolf. For the first time, Nina is faced to confront all the clues indicating her BFF was not what she seemed. A letter from the dead woman opens Nina’s eyes to a strange, new world. The same letter warns of a sinister group called the Alpha Brethren, and urges her to find Killian Moon of the Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort on Gemini Island.
Killian Moon is a jaguar shifter and teen mentor at the Ursa Lodge in Northern Ontario. He may be a comfort and inspiration to confused teen shifters, but he also has a fiery past. His past comes back to haunt him when human Nina arrives at the resort, demanding to speak with him. Demanding answers. Can he trust her with knowledge that will not only change her life, but possibly endanger those around him?
As Killian begrudgingly tutors Nina on all things shifter, their mutual curiosity flares into passionate need. Once they touch, once they succumb to desire, there is no going back. Killian realizes Nina is his mate and they both begin to comprehend the terror threatening those on their shifter-friendly island. He is forced to confront the tragedy in his family and determines to protect Nina at all costs.
But can they protect everyone they love from a cult of dangerous shifters, intent on horror and destruction?
“How much longer do I have to wait? I want to see Killian Moon. Now.”
The feminine voice, strangely soft despite its insistence, echoed deep in his being, awakening his jaguar. The great cat roared to life, turned toward the office and inhaled deeply. Its eyes flashed in interest.
Killian breathed in at the same time, catching the scent of cherry blossoms through the door. The sweet perfume, mixed with human outrage, proved a heady distraction, making him forget why he was there. Shaking his head, he tried to dismiss the odd sensation as Ryland opened the door.
The door swung open and the first person he glimpsed was one of the clerks from reception, trying his hardest to placate the unexpected guest. “I’m sure Mr. Snow and Mr. Moon will be right back.”
And then his gaze landed on the petite human. Tapered Asian eyes, so dark and mysterious, but rimmed with circles of exhaustion. Smooth, cinnamon skin hinted at a mixed background. Wearing no makeup, she appeared younger than she must be, but her presence and keen eyes pegged her at around thirty years old. She had a riot of curly, black hair and feminine curves that ought to come with a warning. He could see it now. Beware: this woman’s body will cause insanity in men. Even as she gesticulated at the clerk, her boobs jiggled in such a way his throat went dry.
He pictured her in a corset, her breasts spilling over delicate lace edging, and almost forgot his name.
This Nina Suzuki was damn hot and his jaguar seemed to agree. The animal licked its lips, its golden gaze assessing and appreciating every detail, from her rounded hips to her come-hither rack.
Yes, the creature uttered on a frenzied breath.
