Author(s): 

Cast is back and doing her usual excellent job of combining ancient mythology with modern-day scenarios. The gods and goddesses have never been more sympathetic or amusing than they are in this truly delightful novel. Cast is a wonderful spinner of magical tales.

A bored and lonely Goddess of Love decides to check out the wonders of modern-day Tulsa. To her amazement, Venus enjoys herself and discovers a mortal in desperate need of a makeover. Pea Chamberlain has no idea that the invocation she intones will actually invoke the goddess Venus. When it does, Pea is astonished and enchanted.

As Venus helps Pea gain confidence with men, Pea learns about Venus' platonic marriage with Vulcan, the God of Fire. What neither realizes is that Vulcan's been observing them, and his lonely heart is touched by Pea. Complicating matters further are the feelings that Venus develops for hunky fireman Griffith. They say true love never runs smoothly, but this romantic quadrangle is most unique.
