"fun romantic fantasy"
At the employer-employee review Zeus warns demigoddess Kyra
that her performance is unsatisfactory as she has not
accomplished much since their last counseling one century
ago. He explains to the distraught Muse of Good Fortune
that she is on probation and if she fails to improve her
outcomes, she will be terminated. He gives her one month in
Vegas to make the grade.
Socrates Themopolis hires Jake Lennox to determine who is
skimming money from his Vegas located Acropolis I casino
and hotel as the place is packed but losing a million a
month. Jake pretends to be Socrates' nephew so he can
easily get around. When he meets employee Kyra he is
attracted to her, but her behavior seems just off kilter
making his suspect she might be the thief yet hoping she is
not. As they fall in love, Kyra must choose between
immortality and a life with Jake.
ALMOST A GODDESS is a fun romantic fantasy starring a
likable demigoddess and a caring mortal. Each brings
baggage to the craps table as both wonder whether they will
shoot snake eyes or sevens when it comes to betting on the
other. The interaction between Zeus and Kyra is priceless
as Judi McCoy provides an amusing enchanting tale that will
have readers pondering for love or immortality.

Position Title -- Muse of Good Fortune
Evaluated by --
Mighty Zeus, President, CEO, Top God
Kyra's performance has, quite frankly, been a disappointment over these past one hundred years. Our Muse of Good Fortune, despite her exceptional charm and unearthly beauty, has been slacking off, getting by on her looks, wiles, and considerable sex appeal -- not to mention her privileged position as the daughter of Mighty Zeus Himself!
The best place on Earth for the Muse of Good Fortune to make a difference is . . . Las Vegas. Therefore Kyra is to spend one year at the famous Acropolis Casino, where she will inspire good fortune. During her sentence, she is forbidden from getting romantically involved with a mortal, and most especially not with Jake Lennox. This professional gambler-turned-investigator is too seductive and attractive for his own good. Besides, Jake has an agenda that may prove too dangerous for Kyra's soft heart. So, if she falls in love, all bets are off.
