woman is drawn to statue and kisses him. statue comes alive, but has only 2 weeks to make her fall in love with him or he becomes statue again...permanently.
it was a good, light-hearted story, but i liked 'pleasure slave' and 'jewel of atlantis' better.

I couldn't get past the 4th chapter of this book. I'm totally willing to buy into the fantasy of the hunky-hero-comes-to-life .. but once he did, I wanted him back in statue form.

His treatment of the heroine was such a turn off for me, that I couldn't continue the book, therefore the one star.

Not as good as her book The Pleasure Slave.

Despite the fact that my finance gave me a look that clearly read: "you are insane to be reading that dribble voluntarily!" I actually quite enjoyed this book.

I admit, it was exceptionally cheesy, but I go in for that sort of thing every now and then so it was a good mindless-no-thinky-book! Fun fun!

Lighthearted and a bit fluffy, if you're used to Showalter's Lords of the Underworld or Alien Huntress series (which I love), you may find these aren't to your taste. This book and the other Imperia novel (The Pleasure Slave) are more straightforward girl-find-alpha-male-of-her-dreams/guy-learns-women-have-brains romances. A fun beach read but if you're hoping to get all caught up in the characters' motivations and their complicated lives, there's less to savor here.

I would never diss an author for their early books, and clearly the Imperia novels are evidence of Showalter working out what she wants to write about - while giving readers an amusing read, just not as compelling by comparison to her later novels.

Not one of Showalter's best but still fun. The second book (Pleasure Slave) was better. The beginning was slow but it gets better towards the end. I think I was more interested in Percen and Heather's story. My favorite things about it was the scenes with Kate's brothers. Very light-hearted.

While this is not my favorite Showalter, it was a enjoyable lazy day at the beach read or rainy sunday read. Not much depth but a descriptive enough to escape into.
