Some Enchanted Evening

(1998)
A novel by

 
Mary Jane Magorski's life is dull. She's spent all her time since high school studying and taking college night classes.Three months after earning her bachelor's degree, she still hasn't been promoted from behind the perfume counter at Hastings Department Store. She needs excitement. She needs adventure. She needs a better job. And then one morning, right there behind the perfume counter, she unpacks a box of antique bottles and finds one that glows with emerald light. Noting her interest, her supervisor buys the bottle and gives it to Mary as a birthday gift. Unfortunately for Mary, the exotic gift is the last good thing that happens to her for hours. In short order, she's fired from her job, her landlady kicks her out of her apartment for harboring a stray dog, her purse is stolen, and she's accosted by an amorous drunk in the hallway of the seedy motel where she's rented a room for the night. In desperation, she throws the antique bottle at the man. It shatters against the wall and a strange green fog pours from the broken bottle. When the fog lifts, Mary is stunned to see a six-foot-tall pirate captain. Sinjin Avery is dark, dangerous, handsome, and he now belongs to Mary for two glorious weeks.

Mary's life is no longer dull. She gets excitement; she gets adventure--in spades. She also gets to fall in love. Unfortunately, her gorgeous pirate captain is due to turn back into a green fog shortly. He'll disappear into the bottle forever, unless, of course, the two lovers can find a way to free Sinjin from the spell of the silver bracelet and thus escape the evil machinations of the wicked Jinn Asaf Simoom. Will they make it in time? Or will Simoom trap Sinjin for eternity? Some Enchanted Evening is a roller-coaster adventure, laced with the fantasy of The Arabian Nights, tender romance, and charming characters. Don't miss it. --Lois Faye Dyer
