Review: Primal Temptation by Sydney Somers

Condemned to darkness…tempted by passion.

Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 4

Enslaved by a vengeful goddess, forced to live on blood, Lucan can barely remember life as a knight of the Round Table. Yet when one woman’s touch awakens millennium-old feelings that tame the savage darkness within him, he has no choice but to deny their all-consuming passion—for her own protection.

Cat-shifter Briana Callaghan has watched all three of her brothers find their mates, but love isn’t in her future. Especially when her mate turns out to be a lethal mercenary…and the only man ever to break her heart.

When she’s chosen to compete in the Gauntlet, an immortal death match, Briana realizes the prize—the sword Excalibur—is her only hope of severing the fierce bond that has the power to destroy her.

Stunned to find themselves pitted against each other, Briana and Lucan quickly find that the only thing they’re fighting harder than their enemies is their sizzling, heartbreaking chemistry. But even if they survive the Gauntlet, claiming the woman he loves will be as impossible as letting her go.

I loved this book especially even if Lucan needed to head-slapped to learn some sense. He and Briana are perfect for each and this book has lots of action of both in and out of the contest lol. Out of the four of these books this one is my favorite because I love both the heroine and hero. Briana is smart, strong, and is ready to take charge of her life with or without Lucan. And Lucan is strong, sexy, and after he gets on board with him and Brianna being forever he is perfect.

Ms. Somers sent me these books for my honest review. I loved this one and give it 4 1/2 stars. You can either purchase these at Samhain Publishing or Amazon.

Revew: Primal Attraction by Sydney Somers

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. Desire that could unlock their past…or cause him to lose her all over again.

I love Cale in this book. He's alpha to the bone but he'll stop at nothing to either make Sorcha remember or fall for him again.
And Sorcha is the boogey man that gets sent out after the Other wrong doers and she's good at it but can quite understand why she either can't or won't kill Cale. The secondary characters in this series are outstanding and help make it a must read series.

Thanks to Sydney for a copy of this book for review. I give it a 4 1/2 star out of 5.

Revew: Primal Hunger by Sydney Somers

When the sun goes down, passion is unleashed.

Pendragon Gargoyles Book 1

Kennedy Beaumont loves her bartending job, even if her spirited nature sometimes gets her in trouble. Like threatening to hose down one of Pendragon’s co-owners. When it comes to Tristan, she could use a good hosing down herself—maybe it’ll help her stop casting him as the star of her wickedest dreams. Since he goes out of his way to avoid her, it ought to be easy to put him out of her head—until he reluctantly offers her a ride home.

Gargoyle shape-shifter Tristan Callaghan hasn’t had time for anything other than recovering the mystical dagger that was used to permanently lock his brother in a prison of stone. The cat inside him should have stopped craving Kennedy’s touch long ago, but now that she’s sitting next to him in his car, his very human need for her is sharper than ever.

The distraction is costly. In a split second, Kennedy finds herself thrust into a dangerous, millennia-old hunt for Excalibur. A hunt that marks her for death—and leaves Tristan with a painful choice—sacrifice his family, his quest…or the one woman meant to be his.

Kennedy is a great heroine. She keeps all the Others in line at the bar with a water hose even though she is only a human or so everyone thinks. She and Tristan have had chemistry but Tristan didn't want to act upon it since he was trying to help remove a curse from his brother. But when Kennedy is marked for Death because she is special to Tristan he has to admit it and fight to save her before she killed. The end of this one is great and I don't want to give away the ending so I'll just say go read it.

I was given all four of these books to review by the author. I've read and loved most of her other books especially the Spellbound series and I think these might be even better and was surprised to discover that. I give this one 4 1/2 stars out of five.

Review: Archangel's Legion by Nalini Singh


Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force. Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.

Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…

Everytime I think Nalini's books can't get any better she proves me wrong. I love Elena and Rafael and this series. This book made me sad, mad and ridiculously happy all in one book. I spent a few days in my car trying to make myself drive home from work. I'd say I was only going to read one more chapter but would end up sitting in my car reading till I was late going home lol. I don't want to give anything away but I love the way this ended I am so glad most folks came out okay and am looking forward to see where Ms. Singh takes it from here.

I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and I will keep Nalini Singh on my automatically buy list just like I did this one.

Review: Mine to Hold by Cynthia Eden


She was one man’s obsession…

Nine years ago, Claire Kramer’s lover brutally killed her family, and he tried to kill her. She escaped, but she’s been haunted ever since that attack. Too afraid to trust another man and too worried that her past will catch up with her, Claire never gets too close to anyone. But then she meets Noah York.He had to have her.

Noah York is a man with secrets. The world sees him as a billionaire hotel tycoon, but Noah has a dark and dangerous side. For years, he worked covert military operations before he built his fortune. When it comes to death, Noah is a master. He knows that he should steer clear of Claire, but the white-hot attraction Noah feels for the delicate beauty is instant—and consuming.

He will never let her go.

Someone else is just as consumed by Claire—someone who will kill to possess her. And if Noah can’t stop the hunter in the darkness, he may just lose the one woman that he can’t live without.

Author’s Note: MINE TO HOLD is a dark and sexy romantic suspense novel. It contains a twisted killer, a hot hero, and a heroine who has been pushed to the edge. Adult language and sexy situations are included. Please consider yourself warned.

I love this book. Noah ha been one of my favorite men by Cynthia. I really like how him and his friends describe his love life as being a revolving door. I just knew that when he fell he'd fall hard and boy did he. And Claire what can I say she's a survivor and man did she have some shit to survive. Me now i'd have bought a gun and started practicing. I give this 5 stars cause even though I figured out the bad guy and technically wasn't surprised by the ending she did have me second guessing myself but I was right. Most of the time I am spot on with the whodunit in books but this one I was wavering on. Way to go Cynthia not many authors can do that to me lol. If you not read this series please do. Great Romantic Suspense and may I beg that we get Drake's story. That boy need a good woman badly.
