Summary

A little magickal mischief never hurt anyone....

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

The last thing Lydia Barratt needs is a demanding Scottish man meddling in her private life. Just because he's gorgeous and totally rocks a kilt doesn't mean she's going to fall for his seductive manner.

But Erik won't give up and just as Lydia lets her guard down, his sister decides to get involved. Her little love potion prank goes terribly wrong, making Lydia the target of his sudden 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.

Warning: Contains yummy, hot, mischievous MacGregors who may or may not be wielding love potion magick in an effort to prank their older brother, and who are almost certainly up to no good on their quest to find true love.

really very good

Read the book first as an author freebie introduction. This audiobook version is as good if not better due to the performance/interpretation by Michael Ferraiuolo who manages to bring all the characters to life.

Magic, Mayhem and a Little Bit of Love

I really enjoyed the first in this series about the Warlocks MacGregor and this is Erik and Lydia’s story. There were some really laugh out loud moments especially with the MacGregor siblings playing pranks on each other. And there’s also a really funny scene where Erik tries to woo Lydia. I do prefer female narrators and although Mr Ferraiuolo did a good job with the Scottish accents I found some of the female ones a little too “effeminate”. Overall, the narration was good and I’m looking forward to listening to the next audio.

Fabulous

Having read the story before I knew what to expect. It is beautifully written with quirky characters that you just grow to love. My only gripe was that the humour that is present in abundance in the book does not come across as well in the recording.

Love Potions

When I first read this book I loved it, the adventures of Lydia when she met the first of the Magregors was unusual to say the least, so when the they fell in love it was inevitable that the evil had to try and kill them both happy endings are lovely but this story is only just begining?

Could not get into this book

I love Michelle Pillows' books and writing style but this book just did not work for me. I never did connect with the characters. The narrator, Michael Ferraiuolo, was his usual awesome self. He is a 10-star narrator. If I had not waited so long to listen to this book, I would return it and the series.

Love a man in a kilt.

Oh i am in love with the MacGregors. This book was great. The characters were hilarious. This book has it all. Romance, action and just plain funny. I look forward to more tales about these sexy Scotsman. The narrator was fantastic. He really brought the them to life. I loved his Scottish Brogue.

IT WILL PUT A SPELL ON YOU….


Michelle knows how to put a spell on her readers! Love Potions was GREAT! It was Steamy! Funny! Creative! Well Written! Had Great Characters! Gosh, it had it all! Ok, the beginning was little awkward between the H/h! They had some crazy chemistry, and you couldn't help but to feel mortified for Lydia, but I had fun listening to their story.

Michael Ferraiuolo's performance was A M A Z I N G !! I liked to have choked on my cheeseburger when Michael started singing! I laughed so hard while Erik was serenading Lydia, it was hilarious!!! That scene alone made this story, I had to clip it!

The Down and Dirty: It Was Awesome! From start to finish, I was in audio bliss, and I loved every minute! One thing I really admired, the story had a strong ending, it wasn't rushed. When the main conflict was over, I was thinking this story is about to end, but nope, I still had an hour to go. It started strong, stayed strong. Well worth the time, credit or sale!

Excellent..

I was totally confused by this book. The first 30% was just so full of sex talk and sex thoughts I thought that was how the whole story was going to be, and I was so bummed about that. I was so wrong! After 30% it became all about the story, and until they had sex late in the book, there were very little thoughts about sex, though there was some, and there was a part where the sex was done by one’s self, if you know what I mean.

I loved Erik and Lydia. They were such a great couple, with no angst and no goofy misunderstandings. That always makes for a good read.

I liked the secondary characters, too: Gramma Annabelle, Lydia’s dead grandmother, Charlotte, Lydia’s BFF, Euann, Iain, Niall, and Rory, Erik’s brothers’, and Malina, Erik’s sister. What a fun and funny group of siblings they were. Some of the pranks they pulled on each other were just crazy. I like Erik’s parents, Angus and Margareta, too. There was a lot going on with this book and it was not only funny it was also very exciting. I thought Lydia’s hitting the bad guy over the head with a skillet was pretty good. And what happened before that was a terrific part of the story, too.

I liked that Erik is a warlock and Lydia’s grandmother was a witch but Lydia didn’t believe in any of that. It was nice watching her find out all about it. There were a couple of times I found myself LMAO! Parts of the book were so funny but I don’t think they would have been nearly as funny if I hadn’t been listening to it. And let me tell you, if it’s at all possible you should all buy the book as well as the Audible version. The narrator is just phenomenal. Even the sample on Audible is hysterical, go listen to it.

As I said, there was sexual tension and one sex scene, and the F-bomb was used 11 times. If you don’t like sex and swearing don’t buy this author.

As to the narrator: Best male narration I’ve ever heard. He laughed like crazy. He whispered, yelled, anything called for he did. AND the women couldn’t have sounded more female with even a woman doing their voices. He was amazing!

Meet the MacGregors!

Erik is a warlock tasked by his ancient warlock clan to find them a new home. Everything is going according to plan until he meets Lydia, the girl next door. Lydia makes soap and candles, and has been growing some of her herbs on the land Erik has just purchased. They run into each other on the property, and the attraction is immediate. It’s also eventually augmented by a love potion that turns Erik into an obsessive, (tone-deaf) serenading suitor.

Along with the cute romance, there are some scary bits involving shadow creatures, a friendly family ghost, and the various -- and often interfering -- members of the clan, who each have their own very clever magical abilities. The plot is witty, the dangerous bad guys handled with dispatch, and the HEA is guaranteed. But getting to know the warlock family members in this series is a lot of the fun, because, of course, all the bros and cousins are gorgeous Highlanders, so what’s not to love?

This was my first Michelle Pillow read, and I’ve gone on to purchase a few more for those days when I just want to get away from the intensity of the more involved books I read. She’s perfect for when I want to listen to something lighter, but still entertaining. Stories I can easily pick up and put down without a big commitment, and just enjoy them.

This book fit the bill nicely, as did the 2nd in this series.

Here is a writer who knows what she is about, and what her strengths are. She writes sweet, funny and lightly romantic books that are witty and easy to read. There is a sex scene, but I don’t remember it being all that hot — or not so that it stood out from the general light tone of the romance.

The reader is Michael Ferraiuolo, and this is my first time listening to him. I thought he was amazing with this book, and I particularly applaud his Scots brogue, and 'Erik's' off-tune singing. It was painfully hilarious!

Warlock learns to woo.

My first time in this series. I was enthralled. Eric won my heart as well. This story was pure magic from beginning to end. Lydia did everything right. She learned quickly how to handle the McGregors and their magic. Can't wait to see what's next.

Great Series Starter

This was a great start to a series that appears to be a very amusing series. I thoroughly enjoyed these characters and found myself laughing throughout the book. The narrator did a great job in making my favorite funny moments even funnier. A great job all the way around by both the author and the narrator. I can't wait to move on to the next one.

Ugh, Not for me AT ALL

I listened to the sample and it was a silly man singing.

Started the book and its woman clenching her legs because of the man, man looking at woman, gets a boner????? She can't help noticing his boner. Stopped in 3rd chapter.
Clearly not my idea of romance.
