Predator’s Refuge, Gemini Island Shifters 3 by Rosanna Leo

I am so excited to have Rosanna Leo here today. Her Gemeni Series is seriously hot and she’s here to tell us about the third installment, Predator’s Refuge.

Predator's Refuge CoverA tiger shifter searching for a safe place to hide. A lynx shifter trying to prove herself. Neither expecting the desire that flares between them … nor the danger stalking them. Suspense and passion fill the pages of Predator’s Refuge, Book 3 of Rosanna Leo’s thrilling romance series, Gemini Island Shifters.


Lynx shifter Marci Lennox has worked at the shifter-friendly Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort all her adult life. It’s more a home to her than a job. When her boss goes on vacation, putting her in charge, Marci is thrilled. Finally a chance to prove she has the mettle to run a resort.
Her confidence is shaken when new employee Anton Gaspar appears. One look at the mysterious tiger shifter spells trouble for Marci and for her sex-crazed lynx. Anton is judgmental, condescending, and a little misogynistic. Unfortunately, Marci’s lynx thinks his tiger is more delicious than an oversized bag of Maltesers.

It becomes difficult for Marci to remain neutral near Anton, especially when she learns of his troubling past and unusual family circumstances. However, when dangerous incidents occur on the resort, the lynx woman and tiger man join forces to combat the threat to the lodge and its guests.
Harder still is the quest to combat their explosive feelings for one another. As they explore their mutual passion, they realize the danger at the resort is more insidious than they ever envisioned. Their dreams, their love, and their very lives are at stake.


Immediately, the fragrance hit him, activating his Jacobson’s organ. He swallowed, tasting it on his tongue and at the back of his throat, and wondered if he was mistaken.

No, how could he mistake the unique scent of a female cat in heat? It was too delicious a scent to forget. Sweetness coated his taste buds, winding a delirious path down his throat. As his head swam, he blinked and tried to clear his thoughts of the sexual imagery racing through it.

The scent did not belong to another tiger shifter, but some other type of predatory cat. One whose perfume he hadn’t sampled before. One who must be particular to this region. Cougar? No. Mountain lion? Surely not.

Whatever she was, her scent teased him with its delicious flavor.

Don’t, he warned himself. Wasn’t it enough that he spent the last few years of his existence trying to escape the sick wiles of the grasping women at court? And God only knew how hard he’d worked to maintain a state of abstinence at Pannonhalma, devoting his life to meditation. He’d come here to work, not lose himself in a sweet piece of…

Stop it. This was no time to think of pussy, even though he’d never been more desperate for a taste of creaming woman.

His tiger howled inside him, hungry for that which it had been denied for almost two years.

Still the perfume, more intoxicating than any he’d known, wafted toward him. He wanted to close his eyes and drink it in. The unyielding power of the aroma could make him forget his vows. Granted, he wasn’t really a monk, but he had followed the monastic lifestyle from day one at Pannonhalma. The purity in the monk’s life had been the very thing he’d required to get his life back on track.

So why did he want to find the source of the scent and fuck her until she begged alternately for mercy and for more? Her need seemed strong. Whoever this lady cat was, she must be in dire agony for her scent to be so powerful.

None of his business.

Mentally caging the growling tiger inside him, he shook his head and approached the front desk. He dropped his luggage and cleared his throat at the woman working there. Her head had been down as she read some reports, but she looked up now.

“Welcome to the Ursa…” Her jaw fell open and her sentence hung in the air, unfinished and clearly forgotten.

Well, well. A beautiful little lynx.

I am head of heels in love with this book for so many reasons. It’s my first male first POV story. It’s my first cougar/cub story. And it touches a bit on the rougher side of sex. Not too deep, not as deep as some authors go, but it does brush along the lines. I like that.


So, along with my tour, I’ll be giving away two e-copies of Seducing Kate, but not only is one lucky reader going to win a copy of Seducing Kate, but they’ll get a sweet little beginner bondage set to go with the book. Two nice soft silk bindings and a satin blindfold. All you have to do, is stop by and see me during my blog tour. You can enter once at every stop along the way. So if you visit me a two blogs, you’ll be entered twice, three blogs gets you three entries.  The more you come see me, the more you’ll be entered to win!

Seducing Kate by Emilia Mancini

It was lust at first sight when Kyle met his roommate’s mother.

To be or not to be Alpha

Welcome, Alpha Male Blog Hoppers! So happy to see you here!

Please note that I write erotica. While my post is clean, the excerpt below is not.

The Alpha Male, for me anyway, is a tricky beast. I like strong, take-charge men. But I like them to still be sensitive to their woman. I don’t want a man pushing me around, acting like a jerk, and I certainly don’t want to read about men like that.

I want them to be protective and maybe a little tough, refusing to take crap from their lady. I want them to be dominant without being bossy. (Is that possible? In my mind it is.)

Some of the books I’ve read, I feel like the author has taken the “angry, betrayed alpha” too far and turned him into a borderline abusive asshat. Sorry, but that is NOT sexy.

Even in erotica with a strong Dom/Sub relationship, it should be about respect.

My latest book, Seducing Kate, an erotic novel, delves a bit into creating a dominate personality.

Kyle is a young man, just about to graduate college when he falls in lust with his roommate’s mother Kate. Kate has a bad habit of dating the worst kind of man she can find. Soon enough, though, the reasoning behind that starts to peel away. Kate is has subordinate tendencies and tends to confuse being treated badly with being dominated.

As she and Kyle begin hot steamy affair, they both start working out the kinks (sorry, had to do it) in their sexual appetites. Kate shows Kyle how to be dominate, and Kyle makes Kate realize dominance doesn’t equate disrespect.

Though Kate is significantly older than Kyle, their connection is much deeper than purely sexual and changes them forever.

Kyle is kind and respectful while pushing the lines that Kate wants pushed, he adores her while dominating her and breaks the cycle of abuse that Kate has been stuck in most of her life.

It’s sweet, it’s hot, and it’s the kind of alpha male romance like.

As part of my release celebration, I’m staring my blog tour right here, right now.


Comment below for a chance to win not only a copy of Seducing Kate, but also a Silk Rope Set including soft wrist and ankle bands and  satin blindfold. Hey, once you read this, you’re gonna want these things. 😉

Winner will be notified February 1st.

It was lust at first sight for Kyle when he met his roommate Justin’s mother Kate. Kyle, a college transfer, was too far from home to visit on short school breaks, so Justin took him to Minneapolis where his mother was serving up a family meal for Thanksgiving.

One look left Kyle with a healthy obsession for Kate which grew with each visit. When he landed an internship in Minneapolis, he moved in with Kate for the summer, and got in touch with his voyeuristic side. It wasn’t until one late evening and a few too many glasses of wine that Kyle began to suspect his attraction wasn’t one-sided.

When he dared to push the issue, he found Kate more than willing to succumb to his seduction.


I’d barely spent time with Kate, just a few minutes in the kitchen before John had come strutting in. I had sat across from her at dinner making awkward conversation while Justin and John glared at each other over the spaghetti and garlic bread. It wasn’t like she’d crawled across the floor half naked and begged me to fuck her.

What the hell was it about her? Sure she was beautiful, but I’d dated beautiful women. None of them had pushed me to the point of obsession. I wanted nothing more than to throw Kate down and fuck her until she screamed. Not cried out like she had moments ago, but screamed. And dug her nails in my back. And wrapped her legs so tight around me I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t know why. All I knew was my body was borderline insane with lust, and my dick was so hard it hurt.


I turned the cold water on and splashed my face a few times to snap out of the Kate-induced haze. When I was finally able to think about something other than having sex with her, I went back downstairs.

I tried like hell to focus on the game, but my mind kept wandering. No, it wasn’t wandering. It was reliving my trip upstairs, from the groans, to the flash of tit, to the blush on Kate’s cheeks.

I held out for another hour of video games before I couldn’t take the agony of wanting her any longer. I went up to my room and slipped between the cool sheets of the guest bed. I put a sock over my dick and got off to images of my roommate’s mother.

I pictured her pale ass sticking in the air as I gripped her hips and slid into her tight pussy. I imagined my fist tangled in her hair as she sucked my cock. I even fantasized about her standing over me in black heels and a tight business suit as she ordered me to jerk myself harder.

As I came—hard—I wondered how I was ever going to control myself around her.
