Erik MacGregor, from a clan of ancient Scottish warlocks, 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 nonetheless and determined to win her over.

Lydia Barratt just wants to be left alone to grow flowers and make lotions in her old Victorian house. The last thing she 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 let's 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. Evil lurks within the shadows and it plans to use Lydia, alive or dead, to take out Erik and his clan for good.

LOVE POTIONS was a great introduction to a new series full of magic, love and mischief (and I can't forget the sexy Scottish Men). 

I enjoyed Lydia. She is a bit of a loner but she is just plain likable. Erik is all alpha male, hardheaded and all. Lydia and Erik made a nice couple. Sparks fly instantly and their romance is a bit fast and furious but they definitely butt heads at times and there are many moments where you think it just might be over for good.

I enjoyed the mix of the modern world with the hints of the old. The supporting characters were just as important in the story as the main characters. The whole MacGregor family was a ball of fun. I really felt like I was got to know a little bit about everyone that was introduced. They all love each other but their pranks and bantering is highly entertaining.  It was really fun meeting them and I am excited to learn more about them.

With the amount of family members in the MacGregor family, I have no doubt that we will be entertained with romances for many books to come.

I gave it 4/5 stars
