Guest Post from Rosanna Leo

Many thanks to Liza for hosting me as I embark on the blog tour for Predator’s Trinity, Gemini Island Shifters 6.
My latest paranormal romance is arguably the most racy I’ve ever written, for a couple of reasons. It features my first menage relationship ever. And, um, well, twin brothers.
For those of you who haven’t read a romance featuring a brother menage, I apologize in advance for possibly making you gasp in horror. For those of you who have read this subgenre, you’re welcome. (*smiles*)
I know, it sounds titillating and scandalous. To be perfectly honest, I never thought I’d write this book but it demanded to be written. I recall the first brother romances I ever read, the Colter brothers series by Maya Banks. At first, I was a little horrified, but incredibly curious. Now, like Ms. Banks’ works, my romance features no hanky panky between the brothers themselves…that’s a whole different genre and I do not indulge in it. Of course, they are in the same room together with their heroine. And it is their aim to please her as thoroughly as they can.
They do, by the way.
But it’s not just about the sex in these romances. There is a connection there that defies convention and calls to the characters with primal urgency. It helps that my characters are also paranormal.
They happen to be jaguar shifters. In a paranormal romance, we can suspend our disbelief a bit more, we can understand the characters seeking an outlet most humans would never consider.
My brothers, Percy and Byron Moon, have been through hell together, a torment that follows them in adulthood. It binds them in a way no one would comprehend and forces them to seek communion with the same woman. Add in the twin dynamic and the bonds run even deeper.
I’ve heard so many men fantasizing about being with twin sisters. Why shouldn’t romance readers enjoy this fantasy as well? I’ve been pleased to receive some amazing reviews on Predator’s Trinity so far and hope you enjoy it as well. Allow my sexy twins to shape your dreams tonight.

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.
After her shower, she toweled off and dressed in the clothes provided, choosing a pretty green V-neck T-shirt to accompany the jeans. Everything fit perfectly, from underwear to outerwear, as if the Moons had already known her. It boggled her mind, but she couldn’t lose the sensation they were connected by more than just circumstance. Her instincts never lied. After slipping into a pair of soft white socks, she made her way toward the kitchen.
She heard Byron and Percy before she saw them and stopped to catch an excited breath. When she heard what they said, she paused a moment longer.
“How’s your jaguar holding up?” Byron asked his brother.
She knew it was Byron. Despite them being identical twins, there were slight differences in their voices. Byron’s was the smoother voice. Percy’s had the odd touch of sexy gravel.
“My dumb cat,” replied Percy on a near growl, “was up all night long. He keeps pawing at me, trying to get to her.”
Her? As the burn of jealousy sizzled in Suzan’s gut, she gnawed on her bottom lip in a futile attempt to quell it. Maybe Percy had a girlfriend and he was dying to see her. Maybe he couldn’t wait to escape the cabin so he could meet up with this woman and, well, let his jaguar loose.
“Yeah,” Byron said. “My cat’s in agony, too. I think my ribs are black and blue inside, it pounds them so much.”
Oh, great. She wasn’t sure why this information astounded her. Of course men like them would have girlfriends. Hell, they might have mates. She hadn’t bothered to ask, had she? She’d already heard the mate bond was a powerful thing, that it would drive any shifter to distraction, both sexually and emotionally. Why had she been naïve enough to think these men might be single? She knew enough to know the good ones were always taken.
She’d been so stupid to think they had a bond. Bullshit. Clearly, her empathic tendencies had let her down for the first time.
“I can’t believe how quickly my jag … recognized Suzi,” said Percy.
Oh. Last she heard, she was the only Suzi around here.
Byron grunted. “I feel the same way. I’ve never felt like this. My head’s not working properly. Fuck, I couldn’t even hold a bowl of eggs without losing it. Percy, we need to discuss things. Seriously.”
“If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share, we can’t afford to make any wrong moves, especially with Crane in the picture. We need to support her and not let our egos get in the way.”
If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share…
