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.
RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars

What I Felt

I grabbed the book immediately after reading the summary, thinking that this would be a fun read with all the warrior from long, long time ago in present context. And yep, this is indeed a fun read with lots of witty banter going on that will make you laugh! Who would imagine a stone statue coming to life? However, I think the villain wasn't villain enough and everyone gets a happy ending. Well, that counts for something, right?


A fun read with nicely done character developments. I'll definitely read other books by Showalter after reading The Stone Prince.


Read only if you don't mind a not-so-villain villain. You have been warned.
