I’m so pleased to announce the upcoming release of my next book in the Gemini Island Shifters series, Predator’s Trinity. Slated for publication August 24 at Liquid Silver Books, book 6 brings us the romance between jaguar shifter twins Percy and Byron Moon and human librarian Suzan Marsh. Not only will they have to deal with the strong emotions of a menage relationship, they must find a way to vanquish wolf shifter August Crane.
You will remember August from book 5. He’s not a nice man and will do anything it takes to defeat our friends on Gemini Island.
I don’t yet have a cover but hope to be able to share one soon. However, if you’d like a sense for what Byron and Percy look like, I envision them a little bit like this.
Not bad, huh?
Please enjoy this snippet from Predator’s Trinity, but before you join my shifters, I’ll take a moment to let you know I’ve started a street team, Rosanna Leo’s Pride. If you’d like to join us on Facebook, it’s a great way to join some like-minded readers and be among the first to learn about my work and read my ARCs. Hope to see you there! https://www.facebook.com/groups/RosannaLeosPride/
Blurb for Predator’s Trinity:
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.
“I will kill those Moon boys if it’s the last thing I do.”
At the mention of the name Moon, Suzan cracked open her eyes, but not enough to elicit attention from Crane and his mongrel friends. Still bound to the chair, she remained still, breathing slowly so they’d think she was still unconscious.
The men were huddled in the opposite corner of the sitting room, gathered around an occasional table. She didn’t dare glance toward the clock, but from the shadows in the room, she could tell she’d been out for a while, maybe hours. The windows in the room were open and a light breeze made the curtains rustle. Should she chance a scream? No. Crane hadn’t bothered to shut the windows. He knew no one would listen to her screams here.
One of the men shifted his balance from one foot to the other. “Do you want us to take them out?”
She knew the voice. It was Tyler, Crane’s favorite henchman, the one who’d turned into a tiger.
“Don’t be stupid,” answered Crane. “We can’t do a thing while they’re surrounded by their shifter friends from Gemini Island. I need to recruit more people for our cause. But when the time is right, I’ll take pleasure in ripping out their throats.” He paused and then out of nowhere, growled and pounded the table. “I hate those Moons!”
A few documents fluttered to the floor, along with a couple of photos. Thanks to the breeze at the window, several of the photos slid toward her on the floor and came to rest in front of her feet. She dared a glance while Crane and his cronies talked in the other corner.
The photo closest to her pictured two men, twins, by the looks of it. Both blond and ruggedly handsome, their images captured her imagination in a way that had her sucking in shallow breaths. She knew who they were. Percy and Byron Moon. Crane had spent much of his time complaining about the residents of Gemini Island and the Moon brothers were tops on his hit list. Them, and their older brother Killian. It seemed they had a shared history, one Crane regarded with blistering resentment.
Dazzled by the photo, she gazed at it until the rambling of the men in the room faded into nothingness. With her abilities, she could glean knowledge, even from a photo. Staring at Percy and Byron, she felt things. Warm and wonderful things that had her shifting in her seat. She perceived emotions from these men, as clearly as she did from Crane. Only the sensations she derived looking at the Moon twins were quite different. They made her happy and hopeful, and sad to be locked in a room with August Crane.
And she knew, as well as she knew the stacks in her library, that the Moon brothers would be her salvation.
For as long as she could remember, she had just known things. It was a gift that startled, no, terrified her adoptive family. It had lost her friends and prevented her from having regular relationships.
Nevertheless, as much as she often tried to tamp down her ability, one look at the Moons had her convinced they were her future. One glance at the photo and it seemed the wheel of fortune spun her in their direction.
For the first time since being abducted, she wanted to smile.
