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.

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.

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.
