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 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. She even thinks she hears it whispering to her, “kiss me”. 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. She's never actually had a boyfriend, and suffers from what she terms “First Date Syndrome”, meaning she never seems to go on a second date with anyone. 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.

This book is in the Virtual Romance Bookbox.

I have read this book before! It's fabulous, it's a strange paranormal premise that somehow works and is a wonderful story!

This wasn't chosen from Round #8 of the Virtual Romance Bookbox.

I am planning to re-read this one since it's such a wonderful story.

My Review: I re-read this one and enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time! This was my first Gena Showalter book and I remember just being amazed at how wonderful the story and characters were. There's enough fun and humor to make it easy to read, but the characters were interesting so you wanted to keep reading to see what happens to them. The science fiction part didn't take away from the story at all. I loved it!

Not sure what I'll do with this one yet.
