21st-Century Performance appraisalKyraPosition Title -- Muse of Good FortuneEvaluated by -- Mighty Zeus, President, CEO, Top God Performance Assessment 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! Performance Objectives 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.

The year is 1899. Cassandra Kinross, an apprentice witch, is banished from her family home in the Scottish Highlands and sent to America as a mail-order bride. When she meets her fiancé, a proud and unbending man, she knows instantly they will never love one another, and has the nerve to tell him so. In a fit of anger, Colin MacPherson walls her up inside a third floor closet of the mansion he built for his bride and leaves her there to die. With her final breath, Cassandra curses Colin and all his male descendents, barring them from finding their soul mate until she is able to find her own true love. Colin hears the curse and, over the course of time, goes mad. Boarding up the beautiful Victorian, he puts the mansion in trust for a century. A little over one hundred years later, Colin's several times great nephew, Rand MacPherson, inherits the house and plans to realize his dream of refurbishing it and living there himself. Imagine his surprise when, on his first walk through the dilapidated house, he realizes he has an unusual tenant ... his very own ghost. When Cassandra finds out someone intends to live in her home she is furious. Colin deeded the Victorian to her on their almost wedding day and she has no intention of letting anyone else share. To make matters worse, the new owner is Rand MacPherson, a direct descendent of the despicable man who caused her death. Cassandra doesn't care if Rand is tall, blond and handsome--she wants him out of her house and out of her life forever. But Fate steps in and proves to Cassandra that Rand is her one true love; now she needs to find a way to convince him of the same. For only then can the curse be broken and the lovers find their happily-ever-after.
