 He'll stop at nothing to claim her... If she doesn't kill him first. Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 2 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.

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

My Review:
Primal Attraction by Sydney Somers
Cale lost his mate decades ago, he watched her die in battle, unable to get to her in time. He will mourn her loss for eternity. Sorcha is a human turned lethal huntress in exchange for immortality. To keep her mind on her job, her memories are wiped clean every one hundred years. She is assigned to slay an immortal rogue gargoyle who has stolen a prized and sought after ancient artifact. Sorcha finds her prey and prepares to end his immortal life, but something stirs within her. Cale is stunned to find his mate alive, and trying to kill him, but she has no memory of their life together, still, there is a carnal pull that cannot be denied. Will Sorcha be able to kill this handsome gargoyle who she can’t seem to resist? Can Cale prove to Sorcha he is her mate?
Primal Attraction by Sydney Somers, the lady with the scorching hot pen is hot! The tension between the two main characters is off the charts, whether they are arguing, bantering, or giving in to their carnal attractions, the moments of quiet are few and far between in this fast-paced tale. Sorcha is strong, but something is missing in her life, is it Cale? Is this why she is so prickly about everything? Cale is often over-bearing, is it a part of his alpha nature? These two are like the clash of the Titans both out of bed and between the sheets. Their personalities didn’t seem to fit the lost love theme. Of course, Rhiannon may have something to do with that.
I do wish there were more story, there is a lot to cover, so much untold, but the chemistry between these two characters seems to take up a large amount of the story. Is it because they have history, a familiarity from their past? A wonderful and solid addition to the Pendragon Gargoyle series, just not my favorite.

I received a review copy as part of the Sydney Somers’ Pendragon Gargoyle Tour and Giveaway currently going on at Tome Tender until November 17th!
