Devon, in his quest for pleasures regardless of their repercussion, foolishly angered Aphrodite & is cursed into a stone statue which miraculously turns up in Rebecca's new exhibit. Aphrodite releases him from his prison of 200 years to gift him with seven days within which to redeem his selfish ways. Rescued by Rebecca, much to her initial chagrin, Devon spends his week learning about the 21st century, himself and his initially reluctant hostess.
Can his week spent in the present show Devon the error of his rakish ways, or will he be cursed back into stone? Will Rebecca be rewarded with the true man of her dreams who will love, respect and value her as she deserves?
Take a chance on Of Sand and Stone for the answer and you won't be disappointed!
Time-travel romances do not usually pique my interest, however OF SAND AND STONE sounded different, and is it ever! Lauren Smith has written a terrifically entertaining story, with great characters, but what’s most remarkable is that OF SAND AND STONE is exceptionally funny! Ms. Smith uses her historical knowledge to show how Devon Blake, a Regency rake, is lost in the twenty-first century, and I’ve never seen it done better. I loved how we saw modern contraptions through Devon’s mystified eyes, and I really laughed out loud several times; it was very cleverly done. Some of the highlights were Devon trying to understand American idioms and lingo; the dialogues were impeccable: Devon sounded every bit the nineteenth century aristocrat, while Rebecca was totally today; simply delectable!
The story might be short, but it’s perfectly structured, there are no loose threads, and it’s entertaining from beginning to end, and Devon, the selfish rogue, wonderfully redeemed himself; he was delicious! Whether you enjoy contemporary romance or historical, even if you think time-travel romances are not your cup of tea, give OF SAND AND STONE a try because it is a marvellous way to pass a few hours! The book also includes an excerpt of GRIGORI, another one of Lauren Smith’s books, and some goodies.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
