Book review: “Love Potions (Warlocks MacGregor Book 1)” by NYT Bestselling Author Michelle M. Pillow

Genres: Paranormal, fantasy, shifters, romantic comedy, action & adventure, contemporary


Who doesn’t love a man in a kilt?

Erik MacGregor and his unruly crew of cohorts hail from the Highlands of Scotland and have been on the move for centuries. They are mischievous and enjoy playing pranks on one another.

Erik isn’t looking for love, but when he moves next door to Lydia Barratt in the valleys of Wisconsin, sparks fly. Despite his gorgeous looks and wealth, Lydia wants nothing to do with him. She’s happier going about her business making lotions and teas.

The MacGregor clan is supposed to be careful, keeping their magic and shifter abilities a secret from the humans. When a family prank goes wrong, Erik becomes obsessive about Lydia leading to hilarious situations.

When there are other threats on the horizon, Erik and his clan have to team up to save Lydia or risk losing his happily ever after.

My Review: 5 Stars

There’s mischief and magic in the clan of the MacGregors. Although the family moves together, it doesn’t mean that everything is done smoothly. They may curse or nearly kill each other, but if someone from the outside threatens, the family teams up as one.

After being centuries old, Erik doesn’t believe in love, and he uses women. Lydia isn’t impressed by him despite his good looks and wealth. This leads to him pursuing her. Adding a love potion gone terribly wrong, embarrassing and hilarious circumstances ensue for both of them. But, when his family and Lydia are threatened, Erik has to put aside his differences to win Lydia’s heart.

There are a lot of hilarious twists and turns that will make you laugh. I highly recommend this book.
