He will have his revenge-one wicked seduction at a time. Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 3 Emma is used to getting dragged into her twin sister's magical messes, but this time her predicament is more than a minor annoyance. She's chained to a cat shifter that her sister encased in a curse of stone. Worse, the unfortunate gargoyle's waking up. And her sister's not there to take the heat. After a century suspended in stone, Cian would do anything to get his hands on the sorceress who put him there. Strangely, his dreams of revenge turn into an animal hunger to put his hands all over her-in every delightfully wicked way imaginable. Never as talented as her sister, Emma doesn't trust her own magic. But for now she must let Cian believe she's the culprit in order to strike a bargain: to permanently lift the curse in exchange for his tracking skills to find her missing sister. The longer she is near him, though, the closer she comes to surrendering much more than her body to the brutal warrior. As their attraction catches fire, Emma dreads what could happen when he learns the truth. If he will sacrifice her to break the spell...or fight for a love that goes beyond animal instinct. Warning: This book contains adult language, violence, bone-melting explicit sex and a stubborn alpha male who likes his revenge served hot, wild and strong enough to bring him to his knees. 

Primal Pleasure (Pendragon Gargoyles, #3)My Review:
Primal Pleasure by Sydney Somers
With sorceress twins Elena and Emma, you can pretty much count on Elena causing huge problems with her strong powers and Emma paying the price for her sister’s transgressions, over and over. Seems the latest fiasco that Emma gets caught up in is being mistaken once again for her sister who just happened to curse Cian, a Pendragon Gargoyle to remain in his gargoyle form for eternity. It’s been around one hundred years and his siblings think they finally have the sorceress and they plan on tormenting her until she releases their brother. When Cian is released, it wasn’t because Emma did anything, except maybe touch him and liked it, a lot. Confused and weak, Cian feels the need to protect Emma from everyone, even his family. Is his desire just that Emma is attractive and, face it, he hasn’t been with a woman in decades, or is there more? Will Emma ever convince Cian she is not her sister, that she did not curse him? The path to honesty is fraught with tension of every kind as their magnetic attraction threatens to overcome their good senses.

Primal Pleasure by Sydney Somers is probably the most endearingly sweet of the series, with its out of touch hero, fumbling with modern technology and idioms and its quirky and almost powerless heroine, who has once again, fallen victim to her sister’s impulses. Emma is one of the most adorable sorceresses I have ever met (yeah, because I know so many)with a huge heart and some pretty rotten luck when it comes to her sister. But WHY doesn’t she just come clean about Elena? Is it sisterly loyalty or is there more to the story?

Fast and fun, filled with smirk-inducing moments, sweltering scenes and the ever-present chain, I blazed through this addition to the Pendragon Gargoyles, loving every single page! Sydney Somers had her magical pen working overtime on this one!

I received a review copy as part of the Sydney Somers’ Pendragon Gargoyle book Tour and Giveaway currently at Tome Tender through Novermber 17th!
