I was introduced to Karen Chance in line at the grocery store.  I had not even thought to buy the book but in the span of ten minutes I was hooked.  Here’s the blurb:

Cassandra Palmer may be the all-powerful Pythia now, but that doesn’t mean people have stopped trying to kill her. Most of the supernatural power players don’t want the independent minded Cassie as chief clairvoyant—and they’ll stop at nothing to see her six feet under.

The Vampire Senate does support Cassie in her position, but their protection comes with a price: an alliance with the sexy master vampire Mircea, who has claimed Cassie as his own.

But even the vampires will have trouble keeping Cassie alive now that the self-styled god Apollo, the source of the Pythia’s power, has it in for her in a big way. To save her life—and the world—Cassie’s going to have to face down her creator once and for all.

Well in my experience as a reader, I like to think I am an intelligent woman, with periods of bitchiness so incomprehensible so one would dare mock me.  Well when I sat down to enjoy this book, I hadn’t planned on divorcing my family for nearly 6 hours, I hadn’t planned on missing my online chat time with Bek. No no, I had planned to be a very nice and productive person. But instead my family got EB 2.0 and they just put food under the door to my office and left me alone. 

This series it self is very addictive.  I loved to watch the growth of Cassie’s and Mircea’s relationship.  Cassie thinks like a real woman and has the same doubts that we all do.  I like that the main characters in fiction have flaws and problems that are normal even though they themselves may not be.  It also helps the reader relate to them. All the better to suck you in to the story and forget you own troubles just for a little while.  Now I do have to say that all that time traveling does put a little stress on your brain, but after the second book you start to get used to it.  And you find you start to like all the weird eccentric characters that turn up to help Cassie when she most needs it. 

I recommend this book to anyone who needs a laugh and wants to good storyline with romance.
