You are an:

ELECTROMAGNET

An exclusive group of people

The ELECT are a small group of people chosen by a much larger group as their representatives.

A city that’s eternal

The 'Eternal City' is a nickname traditionally given to Rome in Italy. However, note that here we need its local name in Italian: ROMA.

A book that’s periodical

A magazine is a periodical, and can be shortened to MAG.

A trap to capture what’s feeble

A NET is a trap.

Put the letters together and you can make:

ELECTROMAGNET - a peculiar attraction indeed (re the title)!
