Though the review below says the books should be read in order (this is number 3 in the series) I actually read them out of order and it was still enjoyable. Cute, easy to read series.

CPA Travers Kineally lives an ordinary life, thank you very much. But life gets extraordinary when his sister gets him to drive three daffy women halfway across the country to look for Zoe Sinclair, who couldn't possibly still be alive, and certainly cannot be the beautiful woman they finally locate. Then he learns he isn't just a magician with math: he's a mage. But what really makes him nervous is that he can't get Zoe out of his mind.

Grayson continues her faerie-tale inspired series centering on the Fates that began with Completely Smitten (2002) and Simply Irresistible (2003). Though the ending feels a bit rushed, readers will relish this captivating, mad-cap ride through Travers' and Zoe's adventures in a paranormal romance that is traditional and sweet on the sensuality scale, a hallmark of Grayson's. Since the greater story arc of the Fates is ongoing, the series should be read in order, although each book can be enjoyed on its own.

Cute, funny, a good light read. A lot of different mythologies combined to make a cute little story set in modern time.

From the back of the book:

The name's Sinclaie. Zoe Sinclaid, P.I. My stomping grounds are the neon-lit streets of Las Vegas, where anything can happen. And believe me, in my half century here, I've seen plenty. Now might be a good time to mention that I'm a 150-year-old mage, though I don't look a day over thirty. Anyway, like I said, I've tackled all sorts of weird cases here in Sin City...but this latest one/ It's a doozy. See, the Fates need my help. It seems those three wacky gals have been booted from thier lofty station, and the only way they can be reinstated is to live among mere mortals for a while - and get hold of an important piece of magical merchandise that's gone missing. They hitched a ride here form L.A. with a regular guy - but there's nothing "average" about this Joe. He's got the most gorgeous blue eyes I've ever seen. He's also got magical powers he's been denying all his life... one of which appears to be wrappng me around his little finger. Not that this could possibly go anywhere, considering my track record. So here I am, knee-deep in an otherwordly adventure with three crazy Fates and the man of my dreams. Something tells me this case is far form closed...
