Centuries ago in plague-struck Italy, Julian DiConti cast a powerful spell in desperation to have the magical power to be able to help his people who were dying in horrific conditions. The spell goes spectacularly awry, leaving Julian enslaved to a Djinn bottle, bound to grant three wishes to each Master of the bottle until the spell can be broken. More than anything, Julian longs for a normal life – for a home, and a family. After six hundred years, however, he has begun to despair of ever being freed from the spell.
Enter Alessandra Taylor, a young woman who has followed her calling to help others. Working at a shelter for battered women, she's thrilled to meet the reclusive Julian DiConti, whose collection of garments from third world countries has provided funding for shelters across the country. When Julian turns out to be a Djinn from the old bottle she found in her attic, she hears his story and empathizes with his despair. Although she's willing to free him, he can't tell her how.
As time goes by, their initial attraction blossoms into a love that both realize is doomed. Once she has made her third wish, the magic of the bottle will whisk Julian away and out of her life forever... unless she can somehow figure out how to free him. But one by one, she's forced to use the precious wishes to help others.
Douglas McCandless needed a miracle to bring home his two kidnapped children... What he got was a genie. Cheerful and ebullient, Jacinth loves getting involved in the lives of people she’s helping. When Douglas, alarmed at the prospect of being reunited with his children after two long years, asks her to stay for awhile as their nanny, she jumps at the opportunity.
In no time at all Douglas’ life is turned completely upside down! He not only has his kids back but he has a beautiful genie who’s fond of 60's television shows living in his home, charming the socks off everyone she comes in contact with, including Douglas.
What with Jacinth’s oozing-sex-appeal Djinn mother languishing in his living room, appearances by a disapproving Djinn Prince and a supercilious cat shifter with a yen for spaghetti, his ex-wife trying to steal the kids again, and dealing with the lovable Jacinth’s Djinn-wrought havoc, Douglas’ life is spinning out of control. Strangely enough, that’s increasingly less important to him than expanding his little family to include Jacinth... if he can convince her to stay.
