Our heroes are Kane and Dalton. To save those they loved, they both made bargains with the evil goddess, Pyrenia, who turned them into statues to use in her war games. Except for brief changes into human form each year, they are at her mercy for thousands of years unless they can figure out how to satisfy the requirements of their respective out clauses. Our heroines are Jacqueline and Sue. Both are strong women who fall in love with our heroes. Kane's out clause requires that he must give a woman one moment of True Bliss, while Dalton's is that a woman must fall in love with him and be willing to trade places with him. These stories are well paced and have action, romance, and suspense as both couples fight to outwit the goddesses and break the curses. I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.
Both heroines were individually strong women with some minor moments of dumb-girlness, and overall, their sweetness and selflessness was present and a major part of their personalities making them good women to read about.
The heroes were good too. Dalton was a little less compelling despite his sweetness because he was all angst, sex, and sacrifice. Kane, however, was more real because the search for True Bliss introduced us to who he is as a man out of time. His frustrations of culture shock, being thrust into battle, falling for someone when he thought his life would be an endless round of war and sex, desperation, protection...his struggle and love were both more real because of the depth of experience and our knowledge of it.
Overall, I liked the goddesses. Each was distinct and had their own motives and methods which was more entertaining than if it had just been one messed up goddess.
The pacing of the story was good, not a lot of side stuff to detract or distract, everything was relevant and moved the plot along. Quick reads, not complicated, just good stories. Oh, and I received is book free from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.
The first book is a fabulous introduction to the plight of the stonemen. It tells the story of how the stonemen were willing to sacrifice themselves to save the people they loved. They traded their freedom to become the play things of vindictive, evil goddesses who see humans as nothing but a source for their amusement. Luckily for the stonemen, there are still women in the world who are willing to help them escape the enslaving curses, and if they happen to fall in love with their heroine, even better!
The second book is a continuation of the fight to free the stonemen. The many goddesses are using the humans they've enslaved in a ruthless game of "she who has the most wins!" Luckily, there are plucky women who have more humanity then most, and will do whatever it takes to free the stonemen from their marble cages. I cannot wait to read more in this fantastic series!

I choose to recommend this book received through eBook Discovery. It was read using Nook accessibility feature for the reading impaired without which I would not have been able to enjoy this title. Thanks to the authors , the ebook discovery website, and especially Barnes & Noble for making this possible.
