Description: In 1758 Britain, a blood curse imprisons solder Garrick Lawson in the form of a marble statue as a sacrifice to bring prosperity to the Rushworth family. Fighting madness inside his stone prison, Garrick awaits a release that may never come. Over two centuries later, he hears a voice that makes him hunger for love as well as freedom. Mara, the Rushworth heiress, feels irresistibly drawn to the statue. She dreams of hungry kisses in the arms of a soldier with eyes the color of melting chocolate. When Mara discovers an antique journal, revealing her family's crime, she knows the man of her dreams awaits and she must risk the wrath of her devious uncle to free him. Using her blood, Mara brings Garrick to life and awakens his desire to claim her as his woman. But even as fiery passion burns between lovers, the journal reveals that Garrick's freedom has a price...Mara's life. -Amazon

My thoughts: This is one of those random books we all download for free and let sit on our e-readers until we are tired of looking at it. This book was very rushed, but I guess that's what you get with a short story. I liked the idea and the story, but it would have been better as a full length novel with a little more information and back story on the characters. I would love to know more about Garrick's life before he became imprisoned in the stone.
