Preview — The Stone Prince by Gena Showalter
The Stone Prince (Imperia #1)
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...more
Katie James likes to fondle statues.
That sounds weird, doesn't it? Well, this house she bought has a "pleasure garden." What the flip is a pleasure garden, you ask? Apparently it is a garden full of statues of people, male and female, in various stages of ...um... self-gratification.
The statue that Katie is so attracted to (I'm cracking up just writ ...more
I found i was really able to sympathise with Katie, she's not much older than me and also unlucky in love (so i found the ending to this hopeful for myself as well lol) so it was very easy to relate to her.
Jorlan on the other had i hated at first, i think i described him as a sexist pig within the first 50 pages or so, which is a record for me.
I really ...more

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 ...more
You can say that I'm an old fashioned girl.
But reading the all-about-sex-and-sex-and-sex-and-sex novel is not what I expected when I bought this novel.
I thought this novel would be more to fantasy and romance but what I got was a porn book.
I read and love historical romance books and most of them also had sex scene buuuttt... not like this.
Ok, stop with the sex thing. Let me tell you what the story of this book is about.
Katie couldn't resist the power of attraction the statue on the ...more
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.
Seriously, I debated about finishing it. I looked at it every time I walked past my night stand, and thought, "Hmmmm." And I would maybe read a little more. And then the next day wonder again if I should just give up. But I kept going back out of dogged determination to finish, and of the resolution that it shan't defeat me! To quote Mr. Darcy, "I SHALL conquer this!"
You see, I have this odd masochistic tendency to finish movies or books that are really, ...more
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.
140 pages of 'will-they-won't-they' ffs it got old. Then they had sex, and I thought 'well, at least this mig ...more
Funny and intriguing premise. Great characters.
I find it the first time I read the synopsis and the synopsis was very intrigued me to continue to hold tepikir can not forget until I go to bed I was immediately reminded of the decision mebuat "I have read the book I am dying of curiosity rather than making" the next day and I bought and read and thennnn.....
oh my god it is very nice and made me happy was to buy time to read my emotions and novel devoted entirely novel Gena always intrigued me and has mebacanya satisfied and do not forget to a ...more
I picked up this book on a whim, deffinitly thought it was going to be very different than it was. I really was not interested in reading a sex scene that lasted an entire chapter. All the characters in this were really predictable and obnoxious too, at least if I have some lovable characters I can over look most of the stuff about a book that I don't particuarly enjoy. Oh and throw some aliens in there...what?! I was not expecting this story to suddenly go sci-fi mix ...more
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 ...more
I am not a prude, but I do tend to prefer the sensual to be not so in your face. Intimate interactions can drive a story and go a long way to showing the emotional connections between characters. However, this book started out ...more
Jorlan was encased in stone by his own brother and sentenced to an eternity of imprisonment on a foreign planet: Earth. Katie, an unconventional heroine in that she it tall and ‘one of the boys’, is inexplicably attracted to a certain stone statue in the pleasure garden of the fixer upper she just purchased.
My favorite parts of these time traveling novels has been when the heroin is introducing the hero to the ...more

Jorlan's expression turned mocking. “Just in case you get any ideas, know that I’ll be sleeping with a feather in one hand and massage oil in the other.”
