Primal Pleasure: Pendragon Gargoyles Book 3 by Sydney Somers

Primal Pleasure: Pendragon Gargoyles Book 3 by Sydney Somers

PJVs QUICKIE POV: My favorite of the Pendragon Series, Primal Pleasures was a treat to read.

REVIEW:  At the end of Book 2 Sorcha and Cale have tracked down the sorceress that they think bespelled Cale's brother Cian. They have drug her back to their family home and chained her to the gargoyle form of Cian until she undoes the spell that has turned him to stone for 100 years.

Poor Emma is pretty used to be mistaken for her sister Elena, so this scenario is nothing new to her. Her more powerful sister is also a little quick on the draw and has a habit of getting herself into trouble and waiting for Emma to come in and clean it up. Emma doesn't know how she is going to clean up this mess though. Chained to a very fierce looking gargoyle she resigns herself to just sit their and wait for someone to come and get her out of the pickle her sister put her in. What she doesn't expect is the gargoyle to wake up and she comes face to face with a very male and very sexy man - that is pretty angry with her, but also strangely attracted to her.

To protect her sister she can't tell him the truth - but as they try to shake the curse and enemies are popping up around every corner, she is finding it harder and harder to resist him and keep up the charade.

Great story, best of all three. I'm now a total fan girl of Ms. Somers and I think I might have a bit of reading to catch up on! I really like the characters in this one, I like Emma's vulnerability, which I'm usually not fond of, but it totally worked in this one. I also like that they thought their attraction was caused by a curse so they resisted it, instead of going head over tail into the whole mate thing. Definitely worked for me.

The one thing I'm kind of up in the air about this whole series is that there is so much to this world that I believe this series can be so much more. It can be expanded on and pushed to a new level. It is very original and quite an epic idea that I really believe that they might have been better served as full length paranormal romance novels. They have these listed as category length, which I'm not sure what that is - but basically I think it is not a short story, but not quite a full novel. Novella??

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
