Primal Attraction: Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 2 by Sydney Somers

Primal Attraction: Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 2 by Sydney Somers

PJVs QUICKIE POV: This is one of those rare moments in a series history that I actually enjoyed book two more than book one. The characters were very enjoyable and the plot line was more explained and developed so it was easy to lose myself within. This is an enjoyable series that is not polluted with the usual erotic trappings that you find in the more sexual novels that are out there.

REVIEW:  Sorcha is a huntress, employed by the goddess Rhiannon to hunt down and eliminate immortal traitors of Avalon.  She lives for the hunt and is content with her immortality until her latest kill turns out to be sexy gargoyle shifter Cale.

She can't deny the attraction she feels for the cat, but she doesn't have to believe his claim that they are mates and that they were together in the past --- until she supposedly died. Now with a death order on his head, Sorcha must fight her urge to finish the job and serve her goddess or succumb to the wicked attraction that is propelling her into Cale's arms over and over again.

A rich mix of historical Arthurian references, paranormal aspects and romance, the Pendragon Gargoyles series is a hot and entertaining one. Like I mentioned earlier I really liked the hero/heroine in this one and found their romance pleasing. Somers has a rich descriptive voice and weaves a very romantic tale - *sigh* if only these cats were real boys. Just the right mix of dominant male, caring partner and stubborn valiantly.

The downfall came in my usual distaste for pre-existing romances and mates. I just find it a banal trapping that authors fall back on so that the fall in love is easier to handle. This had two of those. Cale had the already established love with Sorcha and then the mate scenario, but it was redeemed by the fact that Sorcha had no memory of it and he had to win her over, so at least there was "falling" motion on one character.

This is a great transition novel for paranormal romance fans to more erotica flare. The sexual encounters were not overpowering to the story-line or over-the-top with crazy actions. You know what I'm talking about - ever read one of those scenes where you are like - HE DID WHAT? - and in no way find it sexy or realistic. 

Overall, an excellent follow-up.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Adults only. Paranormal Romance fans, shifter fans should enjoy. The price is cheap too, so don't worry about splurging. Listed for $3.60 on
