"A fantastic story of space, love and saving the world"

Gillaine Davre' -- just Gillie - is a woman of mysteries that newly appointed Admiral of the Fifth Fleet, Rynan Makerian can't fully figure out. Her ship halfway destroyed, Gillie finds herself deep in space on Cirrus One 352 years in the future; so faking flight codes becomes a necessity as well as keeping a low profile when she discovers that everyone believes she died in the accident that saved their world So what did the grateful people do? They made her a Goddess! But when things start to happen out in space, Gille fears the war she thought ended three hundred years before, might have just been a major set back for the Fav'lhir. Trying to keep her identity a secret is next to impossible as she falls hard for the hunky Admiral. But what will happen to her hard fought persona of just being Gillie when her job to protect the Khalar becomes entangled with not being a Goddess?

I loved this book! Gillie wants to be an average girl, hang out in the bars, play pool, drink and have a boyfriend. But because she has the important task of saving the Khalar from the attacks of the Fav'lhir and their planned inhalation, pretty much everyone gives her space and treats her as untouchable. They can't see beyond the power she wields to the woman she is. Finding herself 352 years forward in time has its advantages as long as they don't find out the Goddess they worship isn't dead after all.

Makerian or Mack is a man set on accomplishing everything set before him. He has control and the responsibility of converting an old space station into a functioning military facility as well as dealing with a crew that doesn't answer to his leadership, and if that isn't enough has to deal with a shrine that he is getting pressured into building to honor the Goddess Kiasidira. When Gillie shows up his already not functioning so perfect life can only get worse. Gillie is just the sort of woman he needs!

Ms Baker has woven together a wonderful story that will have you laugh one minute and crying the next as you discover what makes the difference between a witch, a sorceress, a mageline and a Kiasidira. I need to point out that it is because of authors like Ms Baker I love reading paranormals so much. AN ACCIDNTAL GODDESS is so creative and different. She writes with wit and charm. There are so many things I loved about this story. Gillies' ship, Simon, who is trying from the beginning to set Gillie up with Mack; and then there is Macks' jealousy of the mysterious Simon Gillie keeps talking about. There are parrots that plague the station (I am going to compare them to mosquitoes-they never go away!). And Gillie trying to deal with the fact she is a Goddess -- with a raunchy consort she is constantly thwarting (just so there isn't any confusion, this isn't Mack!)! Excellent book, I can't recommend it enough!

A deep space explosion in Riftspace sends Captain Gillaine Davre three hundred and fifty years into the future, where her likeness graces every shrine, and her accident has been recorded in history as a 'divine sacrifice'. Anonymity, and lies, seem her only options. Then a long-time enemy attacks, again. Can Gillie stop the invasion without revealing her identity, and losing the man she loves?
