41,646 days ago in Pennsylvanian genie dropout inept Vana Aphrodite struggled with control of her power while making her master Peter’s life chaotic and crazy. If she could do one thing for Peter, it would be to convince his family that he is not crazy when he talks about his genie.

Over a centuty later, the late Peter’s descendent football star Zane Harrison arrives at his family’s Pennsylvania estate. When he opens a trunk in the attic that once belonged to Peter, Zane learns that his lunatic relative was not crazy when he meets Vana. Zane blames her for his family’s devastated reputation that still haunts the Harrison clan decades after his great-grandfather died. Vana is shocked by her attraction to her new master, but he coldly informs her he will sell the estate genie and all while she affirms that she remains magically incompetent.

This is an entertaining madcap urban fantasy romance starring a hapless genie and an angry football player who find love in a bottle. With a delightful twist as to why Vana stinks at magic and a warm nod to I Dream of Genie and Bewitched, fans will never look at chess the same way as this is a jocular romantic madcap frolic.
