Guest Post: Rosanna Leo – Predator’s Claim (Gemini Island Shifters 4) ~ @LeoRosanna




Many thanks to the wonderful Houston Havens for hosting me today!

It’s a pleasure to be here as I launch my latest paranormal romance, Predator’s Claim, Gemini Island Shifters 4. This series takes place in a remote Northern Ontario resort that caters to shape shifters, and the few unwitting humans who’ve wandered into their territory. It’s been a fun series to write, full of laughs, as well as intrigue and some very sticky sex.  (Ask my readers about that…they know!)

However, in book 4, I find my romance has grown well, kinkier. I’ve never been a writer of BDSM or rough play. My romances are sexy, but you won’t usually find my characters tying each other up…well, not for long anyway. Book 4, on the other hand, explores a couple of characters who’ve secretly lusted after each other for years. They are tense! Quite frankly, wolf shifters Bart Cairo and Charlotte Moffatt are both ready to explode. So when they get together, it’s with a very big bang.

Bart and Charlotte indulge in some rough play, at least when compared with the lovers in my other books. There is a reason for it, however, as I don’t believe in gratuitous sex scenes. There are some demons they need to vanquish and a poignant scene in the bedroom helps them fight those demons. It left me panting, and I hope it will do the same for you.

Thanks for reading, and make sure you visit Gemini Island, where the men are rough, gruff and a little wild.


LSB Cover Art Template for PhotoShopBlurb:

For years, wolf shifter Bart Cairo has harbored secret feelings for his co-worker, Charlotte Moffatt. Even though he thinks he’s been discreet with his affections, everyone at GeminiIsland’s Ursa Fishing Lodge knows he and Charlotte, a fellow wolf shifter, are meant to be mates. Everyone but Charlotte.
Charlotte couldn’t be less interested in mating. A free spirit, she wants nothing more than to succeed at her new career in the big city and leave small-town Gemini Island behind. However, she can’t deny Bart stirs up unwanted emotions inside her. Emotions she swore she’d never feel again.

The occasion of Bart’s family reunion compels him to assume new responsibilities, and to consider a role he never envisioned for himself. Family tensions rise to the surface as a new Alpha is proclaimed in his pack. And when old grudges escalate, Bart must stake his claim.

Charlotte resists as he stakes a claim on her as well. But when he begins to employ sexual tactics of temptation, she wonders if the only solution is submission to the enticing wolf man. Can she trust her heart again? And can they find their happy ending before an enemy cuts their story short?

He pushed aside one of the suitcases in his way and backed her up against the sitting room wall. He put his hands on either side of her head, closing her in, and leaned toward her. Soaking up the scent of her talc-scented skin and her womanly heat, he inhaled deeply, knowing she was hot for him. “Did our kiss mean nothing to you?”

She blinked. As she stared at him, tears threatened, pooling at the corners of her eyes, but she banished them with another punishing series of blinks. “Nothing.”

Oh, she was good, but he was better. No kidding a kidder, after all. He wet his lips and pinned his gaze on hers, which were now trembling ever so slightly. “You’re fooling yourself.”

“I’m not,” she said on a gulp. “I’m not…”

“Oh yes, you are,” he warned, his voice low and deep. “But that’s gonna stop here and now, Charles.” He moved his face closer to hers, bent his head, and dragged his tongue up the length of her neck. When she gasped, he felt her hold her breath and moved his tongue as slowly as possible. He ground his hips against her, and his cock thumped violently against her belly.

She slammed her hands against the wall behind her, clearly trying to get purchase on anything but him. Even still, her hips rolled against his in obvious invitation. “I want you to stop,” she cried. Her chest jerked as the plaint escaped her, and her tears finally tumbled down her cheeks.

He moved away, just millimeters so she could breathe. Cupping her face, he stared her right in the eyes. “Say it again, and maybe I’ll believe you this time.”

“I want you to…” she squeaked.

“What was that? I can’t quite hear you, princess.”

Her lips wobbled and her eyes crinkled in what could only be agony of the worst kind. “I want…Oh God! I want you.”

He let out the breath he’d been holding and shots of heat radiated through him.


He took her mouth in a savage kiss, meant to illustrate his dominance over her. He nipped at her lips, none too gently, and felt them swell under his touch. Good. That’s how he wanted her. Plump and overcome and ready for him. Always.

As he drove his tongue into her mouth, tangling it with hers, he heard her groan. Ecstasy made his cock riot in his pants, and he would have done anything in that moment to strip her of her clothes and plunge into her sweet moisture. His Charlotte. His woman. He’d make her his in every sense of the word, and soon.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me, Houston, and hugs to Elaine!

  2. I’ve been a fan (with stalker-like tendencies) of Rosanna’s books for over a year. I was a late comer to “Leo’s Party ‘o Smexiness,” but caught up quickly. The fact that she listens to her characters and follows their journey, is one of the main reasons why. I look forward to reading “Predator’s Claim.” It’s on my SHORT (aka. real) TBR list. Congratulations, Rosanna!

  3. Hi Rosanna,

  4. Rosanna! So good to see you here today! Woohoo it’ll be fun! I agree with Elaing8 Predator’s Claim sounds awesome!


    • Thank you Houston! I really appreciate you sharing your web space with me. Rest assured, I have plans for your sexy release too…my plans include a large beverage, a quiet corner…and if hubby’s lucky, he’ll reap the rewards later. LOL
