Primal Attraction by Sydney Somers
Series: Pendragon Gargoyles Book #2
Author: Sydney Somers
He’ll stop at nothing to claim her- If she doesn’t kill him first...A lethal huntress, Sorcha lives to track and eliminate rogue immortals-until her latest assignment turns out to be a sexy, gargoyle shape-shifter. From the start she’s shaken by the lust his touch awakens inside her. Not only that, but the cat is convinced she’s his mate, and for the first time, she’s unable to kill her target.
Still mourning the loss of his mate, Cale is stunned to find Sorcha alive. Yet the woman he aches to possess doesn’t recognize him and is after the only thing that will save his brother-a mystical weapon that will lead to Excalibur. Determined to protect his family and reclaim his mate, Cale ruthlessly takes advantage of Sorcha’s one weakness-her desire for him. Desire that could unlock their past-or cause him to lose her all over again.
Warning: Featuring a sarcastic, ass-kicking heroine going toe-to-toe with the stubborn shifter who-s dead set on reclaiming his mate. Also contains graphic violence, death-threat foreplay and scorching sex that will make you roll over and purr.
Review: While this one was another great addition to the series, I didn’t like it quite as much as the first one. It almost had a different tone than the last one, I guess because Cale and Sorcha have all this past history with each other. I did get a bit frustrated with Sorcha at times, because she refused to admit how much Cale meant to her. She was so set on being a huntress, it was like she couldn’t see the forest for all the trees. She was a tough huntress though and an interesting character. Of course, Cale made up for her stubbornness with his determination to win her over. His sheer happiness that she has really come back from the dead – at least from his perspective – is so sweet and touching. However, it was kind of sad though that she would never regain those memories that she once had had with him.
The story was still original and in line with Sydney Somer’s writings though, and I find myself once again looking forward to her next book!
