A little magical mischief never hurt anyone until a love potion goes terribly wrong.

Magic, Mischief, and Kilts!

Erik MacGregor is from a line of ancient (and mischievous) Scottish warlocks. He isn’t looking for love. After centuries of bachelorhood, it’s not even a consideration… until he moves in next door to Lydia Barratt. It’s clear the beauty wants nothing to do with him, but he’s drawn to her and determined to win her over.

The last thing Lydia needs is an alpha male type meddling in her private life. Just because he’s gorgeous, wealthy, and totally rocks a kilt doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for his seductive charms.

Humans aren’t supposed to know about his family’s magic or the fact he’s a cat shifter. It’s better if mortals don’t know the paranormal exists. But when a family prank goes terribly wrong, causing Erik to succumb to a love potion, Lydia becomes the target of his sudden and embarrassingly obsessive behavior.

They’ll have to find a way to pull Erik out of the spell fast when it becomes clear that Lydia has more than a lovesick warlock to worry about.


Lydia is about to get more than she bargained for when new neighbours take over the mansion up the hill from her house. Erik, a sexy Scottish warlock, is also in for a treat when he feels a pull to get closer to her.

Love Potions might be her business with lotions, smellies and such but it seems real potions might be coming into play soon too. One chance encounter and Lydia feels she could fall at Erik’s feet. A voice to hypnosis her but it’s not just her that feels the effects, Erik is drawn to her also but as he is his powers grow weaker. Seems these two are connected and fate will have its way with keeping them that way.

Crazy spells gone awry, shadows wanting to take what’s not theirs, ghosts popping in to cause a stir and a psycho stalker on the prowl. Things are about to get a lot crazier in this little town now the MacGregor’s have moved in, so hold on to your hats.

Erik and Lydia had a lot of chemistry but needed to learn what was a true reaction and what was a created one when inhibitions are free. Can these two lust filled lovebirds find a way through the chaos to see what they really want?

Lydia’s friend Charlotte is great, crazy things seem to keep happening around her that they want to help her forget. Time will tell whether she will learn all there is to know about the MacGregor clan. Talking of the clan, Erik’s family were great. His brother’s and cousin are pranksters galore but it seems Malina might have topped it when one spell goes a little too far. Love potion taken quite literally with Erik.

Interesting read that has you laughing one moment, fanning yourself the next and keeping you intrigued to see what chaos can surely follow next. Dangers at different turns from different people/things but good magic has a way of bringing everything back to the light.

4 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.
