Contemporary Scottish Magickal Romance

A little magickal mischief never hurt anyone...

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.



“Ly-di-ah! I sit beneath your window, laaaass, singing ‘cuase I loooove your a--" 
When the handsome & hunky Scotsman Erik MacGregor shows up in Green Vallis, Wisconsin, Lydia Barratt's quiet world will never be the same again! Lydia just wants to make her lotions and keep to herself, growing her internet sales and only venturing out into town to mail her products. When Erik MacGregor enters her life her quiet existence is turned upside down, and we are treated to a laugh out loud story with magic, mystery, and some steamy times.

I really enjoyed this story and loved watching Lydia try to deny her attraction to Erik and then try to fight off his advances – especially since that attraction has a bit of a magical element and influence to it! And once Erik’s family gets involved things just go from crazy to insane. The shenanigans that go on between the siblings in the MacGregor family were priceless, and it was so much fun watching them all try to one-up each other with the pranks and spells (and even some modern technology). 

There is a magical connection between Erik and Lydia, and although this connection can potentially be dangerous for him, Erik can’t resist the pull he feels towards Lydia. And when his sister ends up putting a spell on Erik that doesn't quite go as planned, it is quite comical watching Erik profess his feelings to Lydia through song and prose! Of course Lydia can’t resist Erik either, but she can’t help but be a bit wary of him once his magical nature is revealed. And that mouth on Erik does nothing to help Lydia keep her cool around him…
“Mm, aye,” he continued, “big, sexy eyes. Silky dark hair.” Was he actually undressing her? Here? Now? Like this? “Incredible breasts that make my mouth water to suck on them. An ass so firm I've been thinking about sinking my teeth into a ripe cheek ever since first putting eyes on it.”
“Aye, love, I already know how good I am in bed. You’d be lucky indeed to get me between your sheets.”
As magical things heat up in the small town of Green Vallis, Lydia gets caught in the center of some magical mayhem that ultimately finds both her and her friend Charlotte in danger, and the MacGregors having to band together to keep evil at bay. Throw in the very vocal ghost of Lydia’s grandmother and some colorful townfolk, and this made for one fun read!

This was a great introduction to the MacGregor clan and I can’t wait to read more about the other members of the family and hopefully see more of Lydia and Erik in the future.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
