Erotica writer in hiding + Grizzly shifter = hot PNR fun!

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.

Update: Full review moved to BookLikes.

I was given a copy of this book by the author since she "owed" me a book from winning a previous contest. At that time I had purchased all her books to read so we agreed I would wait for the next one to come out. When she offered me an ARC of Predator's Kiss this week I jumped at the chance to read it!

What girl can resist a tall, dark, handsome, furry in all the right places, ornery man who has an inner bear that is not afraid to call him out when he is being a "MORON"! Well this one certainly c

I received a copy of this book from the author as part of the PNR NaUBA group's Author-Reader Exchange program for an honest review.

This was a wonderful, sweet story and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. There's not a whole lot of setup to things, but instead it gets right down to business, introducing us to the characters and their problems. The problems seem realistic enough, and their responses in how they deal with the stresses reflect thier characters well, I just wish there had been a bi

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review LoP. What a fantastic find this treasure was. I love shifters, but I've never read about bear shifters before and they are fantastic! This book flowed smoothly, from awkward scenes to tense scenes (from a variety of reasons), scenes that were sensual. It was an easy read because it just flowed along. I have got to read the next one when it comes out. Don't pass on this one, it's amazing! Thank you, Rosanna, for allowing me to read it.

I’m a newcomer to shifter romance, having only passed a glance at a few here and there, generally being more an historical gal (Tudor, please, followed by Ottomans). I couldn’t see, at first, at the allure of shifter romances. Dude turns into a bear or some such manly thing. Where’s the attraction? What happens to the shredded clothes? How much food do they have to eat to shift?

Those of you into shifter romances are snickering, the rest may be waiting for the answer (it’s coming).

But I’m a conve

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 islan

This was my first “Shifter” read and I found it to be a very sweet story.

Ryland is the owner of a private fishing lodge (The Ursa Fishing Lodge) on Gemini Island, which is basically a haven for the shifter race. A place where young shifters can learn to come into their own in peace where they'll be safe. A place where no one has to worry about being themselves.....Pure serenity.

Everything was indeed serene until Ryland's rock star hot shot brother Soren showed up fearing for his life. This come

I loved this book so much! It's a great start to a new series, I don't know how Rosanna does it but each book is every bit as a amazing and irresistible as the last! I just did not want to put this book down at any stage, it was too addictive!
I loved the characters and I will admit to Ryland being my favourite brother from the start! Don't get me wrong, I love Soren, he's fun but if the two brothers were in front of me (both single) I'd totally say see ya to Soren while dragging Ryland off somew

Wow, I loved this book. Rosanna Leo is fast becoming one of my favourite writers!!

Ryder is a bear shifter, and this not only comes out when he shifts, but through his personality. He's a little growly, a little grumbly, and a whole lot sexy. I haven't read any bear shifter romances before, so it was great to see a new shifter and see different parts (usually they're all smooth and seductive - like Soren, Ryder's brother!) Don't get me wrong, Ryder is PLENTY seductive. There's a scene that has be

Predator's Kiss was a yummy shifter story but, instead of wolves it has bears!! I love Bears!!

This was a really nicely written feel good book. A definite must for anyone in a TLC kind of mood.

Both our hero and heroine have swerved slightly off the beaten path with quirks like an overwhelming fondness for plaid or a irrational fear of all things furry. They both accept each other and help each other however they can.

The setting is a lodge out on an island that caters to shifters. That being said, with all of the action in this book it started to seem like Grand Central Station with stalke

I don't know why this book sat in my TBR pile for so long because it ticks all my boxes at first glance: it has bear shifters and a beautiful cover! I have read Rosanna Leo's The Selkie (and loved it), and Predator's Kiss also didn't disappoint. I loved Ryland and his connection with the Lia, and somehow their romance seemed to be both sugary sweet and super sexy. Rosanna Leo's books alway leave me feeling good guaranteed, so she has now been bumped to one of my comfort read authors. I highly re ...more

The enormous grizzly bear stalked toward the teenagers, its footfall eerily quiet for such a large beast.

And what a beast! One that we would very much like to cuddle with, once we see his human side ;)

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's take it from the beginning, shall we?

Lia Goodblood, an erotica writer, is running from her biggest fan, who happens to be a creepy stalker that wants to do some very freaky stuff to her. She ends up on Gemini Island, where Ryland Snow, the gruff, human-wary,

That it took me so long to finish this book is no reflection on Rosanna Leo's writing or this story. It was nothing more than my own crazy life constantly getting in the way of my reading time. Darn adult responsibilities! I finally got some time to myself today and the first thing I did was spend some time with sexy bear shifters. It was time well spent indeed!

This was a very sweet, sexy, lighthearted, story, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. As always, I love Rosanna Leo's humor and her charact

Predator's Kiss

Gemini Island is a place where families come to have fun, relax, be one with nature and most importantly to be themselves. This is important because there are not too many places where shifters can have a safe haven. Ryland, owner of Gemini island and a bear shifter, takes pride in giving shifters a vacation spot where they can shift and do what comes natural. When he gets a message from his brother Soren, Ryland knows trouble is coming. When Soren arrives, Ryland finds out that t

Paranormal romances are so much fun. There is so much you can do with them. You are not bound by the constraints of working with only full human characters. In Predator’s Kiss author Rosanna Leo takes advantage of those allowances and gave readers and amazing bear-shifter stories.

There are not many bear-shifter stories out there. Most shifter stories I’ve found revolve around wolf-shifters and large cat-shifters. One of the fun things abou

Predator's Kiss is the first book in Rosanna Leo new series "Gemini Island Shifers". I really like Rosanna's writing style. She writes in a way that makes the story flow which makes it more enjoyable to read.

The stories hero is Ryland Snow, the owner of a resort on Gemini Island. He loves the peacefulness and tranquility of the resort he created. This resort is for all shifters to come and relax. For the most part humans are not allowed in this resort. Soren, Rylands rock star brother, arrives

As a fan gal of Rosanna's mythological romances, I wasn't quite sure if the bear shifters could compare. Boy, was I wrong!

Ryland is a sweet, sexy, protective bear. His brother, Soren, is a wild child musician polar bear. Pardon the pun...but the brothers are polar opposites. Ryland with his plaid shirted self strolled out of the page and captured my heart. Sensitive, sweet, and sexy. Win win win.

The heroine, Lia, is an erotic romance author on the run from a crazed stalker and ends up in the a

Yummy, yum, yum!

A crazed man on the loose...
And a sexy shifter that makes her toes curl!!

And even though Ryland Snow is a fictional character, I must confess that he managed to curl my toes as well! This was my first book written by Rosanna Leo and it definitely won't be my last! I can't wait to read part two of this series, Predator's Serenade, which is about Ryland's cocky, rock-star brother.

Hopefully, there is also some mention of Ryland and his new mate, Lia, as

While I enjoyed the story I found that I had trouble with the language the author used. I understand that the MC was a writer of historical erotic romance however the off and on formal tone of this book just didn't work for me all the time.

Having said that I found the characters likeable.

But lately she has been put on her heels by a stalker who won’t give up and a reporter who is more concerned by getting the picture than privacy. Forced out of her home, Lia stumbles on a ferry taking people to a small private island that has an unknown resort on it. Lia grabs at this lifeline and stumbles in to a world she never imagined could exist.

Get your plaid shirt on a jar of honey handy and get ready for the wild ride that is Ryland.

Once again I find myself loving Rosanna’s writing style it’s fun and refreshing.

I can feel myself smiling when reading her stories and she never fails to entertain you.

I really loved the story plot you have Romance and some suspense thrown in and believe me

I’m not going to complain about the sex scenes Oh my Giddy heart HAWT is the word.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Shifters, what is it about them that call to most of us. Is it the draw of something different that is still somewhat human or is the draw of having someone powerful, which can take care of us. What ever it is we like them. Most of the time we tend to read about wolf shifters, which to me is the most common and if its not then I need to read more but when I read the blurb for this story I was intrigued. Bear shifters.
