Description: Product Description

A love as bright as the stars and enduring as stone...

Katie James is unlucky in love--so unlucky she's been reduced to kissing the marble statue in her own garden. But her luck changes when the statue warms to life in her arms--and turns out to be a hunk straight out of any woman's fantasy! Well, almost... Jorlan en Sarr hails from a distant planet and like all the other men Katie's known, he comes with a lot of baggage.

A cursed warrior with a lover's magic touch...

Entombed in his stony skin for centuries, Jorlan has been waiting for a maiden fair to break the spell. Yet this statuesque beauty with the will of an Amazon and kisses like flame is a far cry from the obedient damsels of Imperia. And though Jorlan is tempted to abandon all for the sake of Katie, unless he can convince her to give him her heart in two weeks' time, he'll be turned back to stone. And she'll be lost to him forever.

Reviews: Aileen (USA: WA) (2006/12/01):
This wasn't my favorite by this author. The main love interest is over the top chauvinistic in the beginning. It made me want to sick my cat on him.=P
The story did improve and is worth reading if you like Gena Showalter's other books.

Woosang (Australia) (2008/01/01):
A standard romance, it follows a tride and true formula.
A lonely girl, kisses a handsome statue and it turns into a flesh and Blood man. He demands that they couple and that she fall in love with him so he can get on his way. Of course there is a time limit and the ending is predictable. BUT having said that, it is well written and I did read it right through in a few hours
