Lost with Leo: Fear of Spiders!

My Sexy Saturday

The theme this week is “I Got You Babe.” I have to admit that I didn’t have the slightest idea of what to do with the topic. After much deep thought, I decided to go with an excerpt from my latest release, Lost With Leo.

Leo, the hero of this novel, is a leopard shifter, and he’s become entangled with a nasty villain—a female from the Spiderus race.


It was a tight band around his chest, restricting his breathing until it felt as if each breath emerged and entered through a straw.

The mansion came into sight, and each inhalation sawed into his lungs. He forced his tense limbs to carry him to the gates, to ring the bell for entrance. A voice squawked from a concealed speaker, and Leo backed away in quick, jerky steps, the flight response kicking in big time. Run. Run. Run!

Yet his promise to honor a contract kept his feet firm, and he stated his business in a steady voice. “Leo Mitchell to see Iseult Orna.”

The gates bearing the crest of a spider parted and slid back with nary a sound to allow him entrance to Spiderus Mansion. Leo strode up the driveway, past the gardens, to where a petite woman waited for him. A brown mouse with brown hair, brown eyes and a secretive nature. She looked as if she wasn’t capable of spitting at a fly, let alone hurting one. He knew better.

A snarl rumbled up his throat, and if he could’ve shot flames with his eyes, she’d be burning in hell.

Betrys Torin.

Leo Mitchell wants to contribute to the operating expenses of the new family-run Middlemarch resort, which specializes in capture fantasies for female guests. Betrys Torins offers what Leo thinks is a wonderful opportunity, but in reality is potentially deadly. He hungers for revenge. A capture might be the perfect payback…

In order to protect her son, Betrys must procure men for her alien employer Iseult Orna. She hates her job and loathes the guilt she feels at trapping the sexy Leo into signing an irrevocable contract. Even worse, she has started dream walking and sharing passionate sex with the gorgeous man. She’s smitten, yet knows they have no future, because when Iseult catches up with Leo, he’ll die.

Inside scoop: Iseult’s appetites for men are extreme. Because of that experience, shifter Leo starts out as a sourpuss, but Betrys knows he’s just the cat’s meow.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!
