“Elle. It’s just Elle.”

When a regular night of Robin Hood-ery results in the manifestation of some, um, unusual paranormal abilities, perfume-maker Elleodora Fredricks realizes the normal world she lives in isn’t quite… normal. And neither is she, thanks to her father, king of the shadow elves. Not only is he evil incarnate and the reason Elle moonlights as a burglar—someone has to take care of all his victims—he’s stolen her memories.

And only reading her fate can fix that.

Good thing she’s got a trio of hotties willing to help her find said fate. Saving her oracle BFF’s fiancée, falling in love with the gargoyle, and making up for breaking the phoenix’s heart ought to be a piece of cake for the princess of the shadow elves.

If only the king didn’t want his daughter dead…



"A sexy gargoyle, a hot phoenix, and a heroine just coming into her own all add up to a great read!

"Clever, sexy, and razor-sharp-- STONE COLD SEDUCTION is a magical, thrilling page-turner."

By Brooke July 19, 2011

Excellent read. I am extremely picky with my fantasy/UF books that I read, as I am not typically a fan. But this book had enough sass, wit, and realism to suck me in. The main character, Elle, is as believable as my own BFF, with her sardonic humor and lack of confidence, and the hero character?... ...more

Grade: B+ 4 Stars, Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for allowing me to read this novel.

Stone Cold Seduction by Jess Macallan follows the story of our un-likely heroine Elleodora on her journey to find her fate.

By Day, Elle owns and runs a scent shop called Emmaline's and fin... ...more

4.5 stars

Wow! This turned out to be one of the most entertaining books I've read all summer! I admit, I'm not a big UF fan; I picked this up with the illusion that it was a stand alone PNR. It turned out I was wrong, but I haven't regretted it a single moment:)

UF seems to be dominated by kick-as... ...more

What’s a girl to do when some want you dead and some want you alive, but you’re not even sure who you are anymore? Well one thing’s for certain, knowledge is definitely power.

Elleodora (Elle) Fredrick’s might seem like a small-time soap shop keeper in a big city, but that’s just barely touching... ...more

Jess has crated a new and captivating world full of Shadow/Light Elves, Oracles, Phoenixes :swooning: and Gargoyles :swooning yet, again. This is the first book in the Set In Stone trilogy. I am a big fan of trilogies because you get a complex story with cl... ...more

So I guess this is one of those things I've seen on other blogs where the post title is usually something like In My Mailbox. But I'm just gonna call it a review as I would do with normal books. I have signed up with a website called Netgallery where you can request to read and review books befor... ...more

Egalley thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC

Stone Cold Seduction is fairly light, amusing urban fantasy. Elle has this wry sense of humour which captivated me straight away.

"I jerked at the unexpected male voice, sloshing coffee on my hand and the table. “Damn! MacLean, what are you doing h... ...more

I really can’t believe that I just read a book and it made me find a GARGOYLE sexy! But, it happens! “Stone Cold Seduction” by Jess Macallan is the first book in the Set in Stone series and it’s a powerful start!

This book is about Elle a young woman who is happy running her little shop and hating... ...more

A Shadow Elf King, gargoyles, oracles, phoenix, light elves, fae, demigods, halflings, an evil father and not one but two romances are featured in this paranormal fantasy romance that grabs you from the first page.

It is a very humorous yet intense story told first person from Elle's point of view... ...more

Wow. Wow, is the only word I can think of after finishing this book. It was just so good and I couldn't put it down. I just kept turning the page completely absorbed in the story.

You could say that I couldn't choose between this book to read or another one at the time and I can honestly say that I am glad I chose this one first. As I had received this book through Goodreads First Reads, I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought "Gargoyle? Phoenix? I haven't read anything li... ...more

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: Elle is just a mere mortal or so she thought. In one day all that changes. Now she is confronted with gargoyles, elves of both light and shadow, phoenixes, oracles and more. Now she has to find her fate and save many from her father’s evil d... ...more

By Kathy August 26, 2011

I really enjoyed this first book in a new urban fantasy/paranormal romance series even though the female lead was atypical for the genre. Elle is not a kick-butt and take names kind of woman. She hates the sight of blood and violence makes her faint. She owns her own shop where she makes soaps an... ...more

By Qwill / The Qwillery September 15, 2011

First off, kudos to Entangled Publishing for being upfront about Stone Cold Seduction's genre: "Paranormal w/ strong Romantic Elements." That is an apt description. This first book in the Set in Stone series has no HEA, but does have romance. With an HEA I might have thought of it as an Urban Fan... ...more

I had heard good things about this book before I won a copy here on Goodreads. I typically read UF/PNR and I love to try something new. I have to admit that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would as I have gotten a little jaded with all of the urban fantasy / PNR out there. I loved the inclusio... ...more

Elle Fredricks has just been caught wearing a horrible Catwoman suit while stealing from the most evil man she knows...her father. The fact that she's been caught by her oh so hot employee, Jax, makes this all the more embarassing. But Elle soon finds out that being caught stealing is the very le... ...more

You ever read a book and afterwords think, "Whoa? What did I just read?"

Well, that's exactly what happened with me when I read Stone Cold Seduction. I'll admit that I normally like a stronger heroine, but there is something steadfast hidden beneath the loveable Elle. I can't explain it, but she'... ...more

Full Review: Elle is happy running her organic soap shop by day and stealing priceless artifacts from her father at night. She’s got a hot male employee who catches her in the act of stealing, but rather than turn her in, he helps her get away! Turns out Jax is not human, but neither is Elle, sh... ...more

Stone Cold Seduction is a fun start to a great new series ~ Set in Stone. Jess Macallan has created a lovely cast of characters and an interesting setting for their adventures. She has pretty much smashed the "rules" of what readers have come to expect with the "normal" paranormal novels.

Well, I... ...more

By Jennifer August 14, 2011

STONE COLD SEDUCTION is a great romance. After reading a few campy, prosaic paranormals, it was refreshing to read Elle's story. I wasn't a fan of the rather abrupt ending, but I should be used to that by now, as it seems to be the trend, especially in ebooks, where it's hard to tell how much of... ...more
