“Centaurs have more stamina than a horse—” pause for effect “—or a man.” His voice had deepened and I felt a rush of pleasure, a little like electricity, pass down my spine, and for a moment I thought I felt trapped in a steamy romance novel. Not that I’d mind.
p159 Divine By Mistake P.C. Cast
Synopsis: The most excitement teacher Shannon Parker expected on her summer vacation was a little shopping. But then her latest purchase–a vase with the Celtic goddess Epona on it–somehow switches her into the world of Partholon, where she’s treated like a goddess. A very temperamental goddess…
It seems that Shannon has stepped into another’s role as the Goddess Incarnate of Epona. And while it has some very appealing moments–what woman doesn’t like a little pampering now and then?–it also comes with a ritual marriage to a centaur and the threat of war against the evil Fomorians. Oh, and everyone disliking her because they think she’s her double.
Somehow Shannon needs to figure out how to get back to Oklahoma without being killed, married to a horse or losing her mind… .
This is by far one of my all time favorite books! I wore out my first paperback version and am now on my 3rd. The 2nd was loaned to a friend and they refused to return it 😉 I hope someday that my own novels are infused with the magic and humor of this story.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
