Being the only girl in a family
with five brothers taught Katie James how to hold her own against men. Unfortunately, it has done nothing
to help her love life. While working
on her latest home-renovation acquisition, Katie is drawn to an amazing
male statue in the garden. One night, she impulsively kisses the statue and
is stunned when it comes to life in
her arms.

Jorlan en Sarr is an alien from the planet Imperia who has spent the last millennium frozen in time, cursed to stone by his powerful sorcerer brother Percen de Locke. While their mother
was not able to undo the curse, she transported Jorlan far away to Earth
in the hopes that someone would free him. But the kiss is only the first step
in breaking the curse; Jorlan must
also get Katie to fall in love with him within two weeks. This may not be
so easy—Jorlan's Neanderthal ways don't sit quite so well with her.

Poor Jorlan is a true fish out of water as he attempts to cope with modern-day morals and mores. HQN and Showalter are off to a very promising start with
this fun new paranormal romance. Watch for further adventures in Imperia from the talented Showalter. (Sep., 384
pp., $6.50)
