[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Love Potions

Michelle M. Pillow, Author of All Things Romance, is a multi-published, award winning author writing in many romance fiction genres. Ever since she can remember, she has had a strange fascination with anything supernatural—ghosts, magical powers, and oh! vampires. After discovering historical romance novels, it was only natural that the supernatural and love/romance elements should someday meet in her wonderland of a brain. She’s glad they did for their children have been pouring onto the computer screen ever since.

Michelle loves to travel and try new things, whether it's a paranormal investigation of an old Vaudeville Theatre or climbing Mayan temples in Belize. She's addicted to movies and used to drive her mother crazy while quoting random scenes with her brother. Though it has yet to happen, her dream is to be in a horror movie as 1. A zombie or 2. The expendable screaming chick who gets it in the beginning credits. But for the most part she can be found writing in her office with a cup of coffee in pajama pants.

She loves to hear from readers. They can contact her through her website, blog, Twitter, Facebook, GoodReads, or via her Newsletter.

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 home. 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.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Love Potions was a fun, witty, supernaturally charged Paranormal Romance with just enough intrigue to keep you guessing.

I'm a longtime fan of Michelle Pillow, and when I saw that she had the debut novel of a new series coming out I was super excited. Plus, you can't go wrong with hot men in kilts, right!? :)

Erik is part of a large long-standing Highland Warlock clan. They're looking for a new home base and find that in the midwest. What Erik (and his entire Clan) aren't prepared for, is that they have a neighbor who is utterly unwilling to move and who immediately puts Erik off of his game, and who is already embroiled in some lurking evil that even she is not aware of.

Love Potions made me laugh out loud in more than one place. The entire MacGregor clan loves to do nothing more than play magical tricks on one another. While it's all a bit immature, they ARE an immortal clan of siblings and cousins who live together throughout time, all the time. I think I'd find new and interesting ways to hex my family, as well.
The leading couple, like all of Michelle's heroes and heroines, have plenty of steamy on-page action, and while their path to their HEA wasn't an easy one, it was full of relief for the reader when they got there and super fun every step of the way.

I cannot wait to see which of the MacGregors Michelle writes about next in the WARLOCKS MACGREGOR series. I have a feeling that every book of this series will be engaging, romantic, and full of light-hearted fun.

If you enjoy your paranormal romances filled with magic, mayhem and plenty of wit, then this book will most definitely be a good one for you to try!
