"Stone Kisses" by Tessa Stokes is a gentle yet very sensual paranormal romance. Stella makes a trip to the garden centre, and takes a fancy not only to a stone statue of the handsome Mercury but also to the assistant there, Justin. However, Mercury is well out of her price range but Justin sees how struck she is with the statue and so delivers it to her. An act of incredible kindness? Yes, and no. There is an ulterior motive and a bet which involves Greek and Roman gods winning the hearts of mortals. Stella is caught up in this, but not unfavorably. She loves both the men who enter her life, even though one is a garden ornament. Little by little Mercury becomes more than that, and the fun and adventure really begins. Mercury goes missing and it is surprisingly tricky to find a large, lost statue.
This is a quirky and very imaginative story. Tessa Stokes has a rather understated style, so the whole story appears simpler than it is. It develops slowly but surely and the reader is pulled into this modern fantasy. We gradually learn more about our sympathetic characters and become very involved in their lives, mortal and immortal. There is plenty of fun at the heart of this story, but there is sadness, seriousness and real tension too at times. It is entertaining, unique and far from predictable, thanks to the author's bright creativity. A highly enjoyable novella that is hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Fairytale! June 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We meet a lonely lady named Stella. When she spots a spectacular statue of a man named, Mercury, she knows she has to have him. But he's way too expensive, so she just buys a bird bath for her garden. When the delivery comes, she's blown away when she finds out the hunky cashier named Justin bought the statue for her.

Stella visits Mercury every day in her garden at the special spot she picked for him. She feels an attraction she can't explain and even feels silly for it. And she wishes he was real. Stella kisses and hugs him and even starts to feel his warm lips. One night she has a dream that he entered her room and they have beautiful sex. Little does she know, it's all real.

Justin asks her out and they start a courtship. Mercury is upset by this, but this is the game they have played for centuries. You see, they're both ancient gods from long ago and destined to play this game over and over again. Mercury needs Stella to make him alive again. Each time she kisses and hugs him, he becomes more alive. And the plot deepens...especially when Justin walks out of her life after he asked her to marry him. Stella is devastated. There is a turn of events that will blow you away. And the ending was done perfectly!

What I really like about this paranormal romance was how different and unique it was. I'm so tired of the same old stuff out there. This was really creative and I thought the romance was so sweet and tender. It's all about finding true love and that special Prince Charming in your life. And I guarantee you will fall in love with Mercury the way I did. He's so handsome, dashing, and passionate. But then again, so is Justin!

This book was the perfect blend of fantasy, romance, and fairytale. My attention was captured and I never let go, glued to every page. I have to commend this author on creating such a distinctive world with hunky gods. She kept me thoroughly entertained. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Myths, magic and sizzling romance April 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One lonely girl, two hunky guys competing for her affections, sizzling sex, magical romance and a touch of comedy running through the story - what more could you want?

Stone Kisses is a heady blend of Greek and Roman mythology with a thoroughly modern twist. Little problem with affairs of the heart? Leave a message on Aphrodite's voicemail. Simple. Of course it isn't that simple, because as we all know even in mythology (especially in mythology) the course of true love never runs smooth, but the concept was so great it had me smiling anyway. You can't blame a protagonist for trying!

This is a lovely paranormal romance, very original and creative, so easy to curl up and lose yourself in that I read it in two sittings. Just as a gentle note of caution, the sex in this was much stronger than the author's Seven Spell series, so if you're coming to this from that, be prepared, (but boy, was it great).

If you love romance, paranormal magic or you're just looking for a cracking good read, then I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun paranormal romance! May 19, 2012
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition
"Stone Kisses" is a romantic modern-day fairytale about two brothers, Nathan and Justin, caught up in a game of the gods (it turns out their mother is a goddess), and the girl they both fall hopelessly in love with.

Stella is a smart, compassionate woman who heads out one day to purchase flowers at the gardening store and comes home with Mercury, a life-size stone statue, which she places in her garden. She develops an instant attraction to Mercury--even her next-door neighbors notice the "poor girl" talking to Mercury and occasionally hugging him.

But unknown to her, Stella's words and touches warm Mercury's stone heart and he gradually becomes more and more human. In the meantime, his all-too-human brother, Justin, is also falling in love with Stella, and now the game is on.

The story is full of twists and clever touches--such as when Jove tells his son, "You'll find Aphrodite in the computer under the Christmas card list." There are also many comical and poignant moments--such as when Justin's tears turn to stone as he loses his humanity, or when somebody gives Stella Mercury's broken stone foot to hold.

Paranormal blends flawlessly with romance in this beautifully crafted book--for mature audiences. You empathize immediately with Stella and hope she finds true love! Highly recommended!
