"tale lives up to its title"

The three Fates (Lachesis, Atropos, and Clotho) arrive at Vivian Kinneally's Portland home seeking help from her Aunt Eugenia who recently died. The trio was stripped of their magical power for one year in an effort to bring some competition into the magical realm in an effort to revitalize it in the age of scientific skepticism. Now someone is trying to kill them while they lack the ability

to perform magic.

The threesome realizes that Vivian is not ready to be their champion so they ask her to find master magician Henri Barou, owner of a local pet store under the name of Dexter Grant. Vivian explains to Dexter what is going on and he knows she is the soul mate he has waited an eternity for. Sparks fly between them even as they intercede in an effort to keep the "retired" Fates from harm.

Readers will find SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE simply irresistible because the whimsical story line contains characters that make magic so real that it feels more like a branch of science. The story line never takes itself seriously while providing sub-genre fans with an amusing war of the magicians (reminiscent of the Corman's movie The Raven). The lead couple is a charmed pair who one does not need a crystal ball to feel they belong together. However, the three Fates and the new wave substitutes turn Kristine Grayson's fun plot into a jocular joyful experience.

Holding Out For A Hero

My name's Vivian Kinneally, and I can't believe this is happening to me. I just moved here to Portland, Oregon, to take over a business left to me by my favorite aunt—nothing earth-shattering...or so you'd think, right? I've always been a little bit psychic—but my powers never hinted at what was to come when I let three gorgeous, terrified women into my home at 6:45 this morning. As The Fates would have it (did I mention these supermodel lookalikes are The Fates?) my life was about to change forever . It seems they're temporarily powerless, and need my help to escape a mysterious enemy. Knowing I can't do it alone, they've sent me in search of one Dexter Grant. And now that I've found We're talking Superman, here—hold the tights, cape, and big red "S". I've always been an independent kind of gal, but something about this guy makes me want to let him fly me to Paris—and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't need a plane to do it....
