Book Description

Rosanna Leo weaves a fun, exhilarating tale in Book 1 of her new Gemini Island Shifters series. Thrills, suspense, and humor abound when a rock star brother, stalkers, and a sexy erotica author descend on one ornery bear shifter. Find out for yourself what happens when events conspire to awaken the bear!

Bear shifter Ryland Snow just wants peace. The peace and quiet afforded him at his woodsy retreat, the Ursa Fishing Lodge. As owner of the lodge, Ryland enjoys the tranquil life he’s created among his fellow shifters. He lives to maintain a safe haven for them, away from meddlesome human eyes.

When his rock star brother arrives, bringing trouble in the form of a possible hit man, Ryland is incensed. He’s been cleaning up Soren’s messes as long as he can remember, and is tired of his brother’s lecherous exploits.

Things go from bad to worse when Lia Goodblood stumbles upon Ryland and his lodge. Yes, the reclusive erotica author is easy on the eyes, but the human woman is more trouble than she’s worth. To say nothing of her bizarre fear of furry creatures.

Ryland determines to rid himself of her presence. But when he learns she’s on the run from a crazed fan, Ryland’s protective bear instincts flare. And the bear won’t be denied.

5.0 out of 5 stars I will never again look at honey the same again! June 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased and honest review. All opinions are my own and no further compensation was received.

My Thoughts:

Ahhh Shifter crack...Yay! I love reading about shifters .... however this was the first time I had read about bear shifters in much detail. Well, guess what? I loved them - especially Ryland!

Due to being betrayed in the past, Ryland had basically resigned himself to being single. He had thrown himself into creating a peaceful lodge and island resort for Shifters to come, relax and find support. He even mentored Shifter teens who were struggling with their identity. He was pleased with the results but usually grouchy, unsmiling and very wary of humans...especially females. His peace and tranquility was quickly shattered when his brother (the rockstar and HUGE womanizer) showed up with a hit man hot on his trail. The two brothers had diametrically opposed lifestyles and having Soren around really put Ryland on edge. No sooner had Soren arrived than the brothers were interrupted by a petite female human in distress and the brothers had to work together to set things right.

Rosanna did a wonderful job of letting us get to know Ryland and his basic personality. She clearly did a ton of research and really worked the whole Grizzly persona into Ryland and his behavior. I was so impressed. I was also really glad that the concern that Soren had for his brother and the feelings that Ryland developed for Lia were all reciprocated. The pacing of the storyline was perfect and I was happily lead along, watching the plot develop. As a Romance, I knew that there would be a happy ending. At one point, I almost felt like we were ready to end the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Paranormal Series July 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Make no mistake about it, bear shifters are my favorite variety! There is just something about the big fuzzy grumps that gets me every time!

Ryland is a yummy grouch most of the book. He just can not fight the pull with Lia! The dynamic with his brother is great!

Lia is sweet but a touch naive and her fear of all things furry was a bit over much. She did bring quite a bit of spunk later in the book.

The story here was good but it had a lot going on, almost too much at times. Resolutions were a bit anticlimactic. I was hoping for a bigger bang.

It took a long tone to get to the steam but once you get there it is yummy! I may never look at honey the same!

This is a great start to the series and I can not wait to see what is next. Gemini island has tons of potential for shifter romances!

(★★★★½) *** Review copy provided by the author ***

"Lia swallowed, praying God would give her the strength to keep her eyes above Ryland's waist. Clearly God was occupied with other things at the moment and not inclined to answer her halfhearted entreaty."

THE SHORT: Highly recommended. Very well-written, sweet, smexy & funny PNR with a bear shifter!! If you like the quirky humour + hot sex in Eve Langlais's PNR books, then you should definitely give PREDATOR'S KISS a go.

THE LONG: Although somewhat wary of reading/reviewing works by those whom I "know" via GR groups, I'm glad that I finally bit the bullet and read a book by Rosanna Leo. PREDATOR'S KISS, the first book in the Gemini Island Shifters series, was an excellent introduction to her writing and storytelling. (And really, how could I resist when the male MC was a bear shifter?)

At just over my personal novella gauge (150pgs), PREDATOR'S KISS hit all the right buttons with its sympathetic main characters, engaging storyline with a few twists and turns, and vanilla but very sexy "love moments". Throw in a nice mix of secondary characters (including one who may star in the next book), a hilariously wise inner bear, and decent-size jar of honey, and PREDATOR'S KISS had the perfect combination for a fast, light-hearted read with more than a few LOL moments. An added bonus? Lia, the heroine, is the author of a best-selling erotic romance. *wink*

If I had any quibbles, then it would be the world-building. It wasn't particularly deep/complex but then again, I suppose that it didn't have to be for this particular story to work. And to offset this, Ms. Leo put a different spin on the fated mates trope and used it for great comedic effect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short and not much background July 20, 2013
By A. Katz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author tried to insert three stories into one book. This was not terrible but I felt it was unnecessary.

Also, it bothered me a bit that there was no justification/explanation of what kind of shapeshifters they were. Why were two brother's different types of bears?
Couldn't anything be added about the shifter culture? There was no mention of packs or anything about shifters outside the island retreat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honey and chains... July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have ever read by Rosanna Leo, having read many,many shifter books...I can say without a shadow of a doubt..This is by far the best shifter romantic erotica I have ever read.The plot and character development is outstanding. The sex scene were sexual and beautiful and had plenty of heat! Gave the book 5 star but truly deserved more.. Ms. Leo is a gifted and talented writer. Lia Goodblood,is looking to escape from her lonely(horrific sex experience..terrible), successful life. Her novel has become a international sensation and with fame, come unimaginable danger..She needs an escape now! She isn't looking for anything much less a man..but fate has other ideas. Ryland Snow, wants to live on his island with no distractions and isn't looking for anything other then the isolation his island brings. When he spots a woman, so enchanting and captivating (rather his bear wants to explore)she is alluring. UGH, Ryland can't believe his sex god of a brother is also on his island trying to escaping a hit man. Soren also spots his brother interest and decides to yank at his brothers chain..lol. Ryland is now protecting a woman who he is trying and failing to fall for...and his idiot brother also needs protecting..so much for his solitary existence. The insatiable,carnal attraction between Lia and Ryland(could they be mates) is undeniable and had me absolutely enthralled..Mesmerized! Warning you will never think about HONEY the same way again! If your into bear shifter romance this series is a must read...The book is volcanic( absolutely to hot to handle)!. Can't wait for the next book in the series! Bravo Rosanna!
