I read a lot of paranormal romance - vampires, witches, and so forth. But aliens from another planet never appealed to me. I picked this book up at a library book sale because the cover caught my eye. From the description on the back, it sounded interesting, despite the alien part, and since it is a Harlequin romance, I figured it wouldn't be all science-fictiony. And it wasn't, at all.
In fact, it was all out steamy from the get-go. Katie is renovating a Victorian home, and there are several st I read a lot of paranormal romance - vampires, witches, and so forth. Katie is renovating a Victorian home, and there are several statues in the garden. She finds herself drawn to this one particular statue though, caressing it, and imagining what it would feel like if it were an actual man and not a statue.
Which she finally does, only to find herself in the arms of a glorious naked man. This is the first book I've read by Gena Showalter. My favorite authors are ones who can mix romance and humor, and Ms. Showalter does so most excellently. Some of the scenes with Katie's overprotective brothers are laugh out loud funny. Katie is a likeable heroine, though her absolute fear of falling in love and her reasons for that fear came across, to me anyway, as a little unfounded. If there had been a serious boyfriend in her past who had hurt her, her attitude would seem more realistic to me.
Overall, a very enjoyable read. And I'm not sure if I'll ever look at a statue the same way. I've never been so disappointed to all the books I've read until this one. Upon reading the synopsis, I thought that this book will be really good. The Stone Prince is all about this woman, Katie , who's attracted to a warrior-like stone statue in the "pleasure garden" of her newly acquired house. Her fascination is so much that she kissed this statue. And then! The story didn't give me the vibe. It doesn't have any catch. I thought it will be interesting when I reached the mid-part but it was all the same.
The author added some characters whom I didn't even get the chance to encounter. I still decided to finish the book hoping that it will give me the interest. But none. The author didn't even know what to do with the villain-sorcerer-brother of Jorlan who cursed him. So she picked-up one character that will tame and love him.
I don't know. I'm very sad that it was poorly written. Dec 31, Raxa rated it did not like it. So Katie, our heroine, likes to do morning jogging, loved by her brothers, has an amazing if not quirky job she is passionate about and it works well for her. I mean sounds G-r-e-a-t, right?

And it would h So Katie, our heroine, likes to do morning jogging, loved by her brothers, has an amazing if not quirky job she is passionate about and it works well for her.
Honesty, I just skimmed through until I gave up and just stopped. The conversations alone is just..
I refused REFUSE to imagine such people ever having these dreadful terse wanna-be sexy banters inside my head from reading it. Who talks like this? The story just dragged on. The chemistry looked forced. No, the chemistry IS forced. God help me, the one saving grace I really liked about reading this story is how the writer would describe her characters. Feb 11, L. David rated it really liked it. Okay, the premise for this is kind of out there, a woman who had had bad luck with men gets a house that she intends to renovate and, lo and behold, there is a statue in the yard that's she attracted to.
Turns out, the statue is really a man from another universe who has been sent here as punishment. And he has enemies looking for him. But as quirky as this book sounds -- I crinkled my nose when I read the blurb -- it actually surprised me. It is witty, fun and there were lots of "awwwww" moment Okay, the premise for this is kind of out there, a woman who had had bad luck with men gets a house that she intends to renovate and, lo and behold, there is a statue in the yard that's she attracted to.
It is witty, fun and there were lots of "awwwww" moments. The characters are so adorable and soon you lose yourself in the interaction between the main characters. It's a fast read, but it is also endearing. I put this on my shelf for another read, which may be soon. Jun 24, Jolene rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I really liked this book. I first picked up The Pleasure Slave which follows this book and was hooked by the world of Imperia.
I was happy when I learned she was re-releasing it. I loved the storyline and the characters and would of loved to have imperia explored a little more. I was a bit bummed that this is only a two book series, but I love Gena Showalters stories and I can't wait to read more of h I really liked this book. I was a bit bummed that this is only a two book series, but I love Gena Showalters stories and I can't wait to read more of her other books. If you can't laugh at a 25yr old virgin molesting a stone statue this writer is not for you.
I admit the whole alien thing can throw you for a loop but there was not a minute I did not find this book enjoyable, a little out there helk yeah I don't live in a fantasy world I just enjoy reading about the ones some people create. This character was fun for me because she was the youngest girl in an all boy family, I could totally understand some of her issues with overly protective brotherly love. D If you can't laugh at a 25yr old virgin molesting a stone statue this writer is not for you.
Doesn't matter what the story is I can't stop grabbing books by Showalter! Aug 20, Wendy rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anyone who doesn't like to think, just be entertained with a very unusual romance novel. Learned not much BUT Couldn't put it down. This type of book is like a good movie to me. You don't have to think, just go along for an entertaining ride. Loved it. Aug 15, Erin rated it it was ok Shelves: naughty-naughty-you-ll-get-caughty , romance , digital , paranormal , magic , gotta-love-men-in-uniform , aliens-beam-me-up.
Good lord this book dragged. I was intrigued with the concept. Was annoyed with the reality. It was aliens not magic well, it was magical aliens , which I would have been fine with since I've been on an alien kick recently, but this book just dragged. Jorlan was very alpha male to the point of being annoying. Katie was even more annoying. They didn't have a relationship, they had arguments.
Then they had sex, and I thought 'well, at least this mig Good lord this book dragged. Then they had sex, and I thought 'well, at least this might make up for lack of plot for the rest of the book'. The sex wasn't even that good, and it was actually quite sparse. It felt quite repetitive. Then more than half way through the book the POV switched to another set of characters that hadn't existed previously. This is not the first book by Gena Showalter that I've read, though it was the first book she wrote.
And it really seems hit or miss with the author. So far there is literally only one series that I have liked remotely, and I've only read the first book of the series The Darkest Night , and some of the series I've dropped entirely because I couldn't get through the book Heart of the Dragon - though I will try reading that one instead of listening to it on audiobook like I had tried , or I finished the book, but didn't really like it Playing with Fire , again for that one I am willing to give the second book a chance but not on audiobook. Just really hit or miss and this one was mostly a miss.

I've enjoyed other stories by this author but this was definitely not one of them. I researched and found out that this was her first published story. The story made very little sense though I thought the idea was a novel one.
With very little chemistry between any of the characters I think there are much better books to read than spending your time with this one. Though o I've enjoyed other stories by this author but this was definitely not one of them. Feb 16, Diana rated it really liked it Shelves: romance , fantasy , paranormal. When Katie kisses a statue, it comes to life as Jorlan, a warrior from another planet who was cursed.
To stay free, he must win her love in fourteen days. Funny and intriguing premise. Great characters. Apr 30, Nicole Coxon rated it really liked it. Not the best book ever, but it was so enjoyable.

Katie James, having recently gotten her hands on a home to be refurbished, including a garden with a beautiful marble statue of a man that tempts her.
But she starts hearing a tempting voice to kiss the statue so she does, and finds herself kissing a real life breathing man that is pure woman's fantasy. At first she doesn't believe that magic or Jorlan is real, or that such a kiss could be so intoxicating. Jorlan en Sarr has been entrapped as a statue for hundreds of years, never knowing that th Katie James, having recently gotten her hands on a home to be refurbished, including a garden with a beautiful marble statue of a man that tempts her.
Jorlan en Sarr has been entrapped as a statue for hundreds of years, never knowing that this one woman would be the one to release him, and he has two weeks to make her fall in love with him and break the spell, if he fails however than he will be a statue for all time. Having come from a panet far away, Imperia, he misses his home but yearns to stay on this one with Katie, who stirs him up like no other woman has ever done. Jorlan is used to obedient women wanting to pleasure him, however Katie is definitely different, far from obedient and pleasing.
To Jorlan, Katie is argumentative, stubborn, opinionated and nothing like what he is used to, but he can't seem to get enough of her, and finds that she fascinated him more than any other has ever done, but will he be able to break the spell with this fair maiden that he has fallen madly for. I found it to be such a fun read, similar to her Atlantis series, with the adventure, passion and sassy fun that is portrayed throughout the story.
I also loved how different these two are from one another, especially since they have lived in different worlds but find a common goal, in one another. From the first page to the last I found the plot and the characters to be engaging and riveting! So if you are looking for a fun and engaging romance than The Stone Prince is definitely for you.
I am definitely looking forward to the other book in the series.
