by Michelle M. Pillow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Paranormal Romance, Stand Alone within Series

Down & Dirty

Often funny but a bit confusing, this is the foundational novel to a robust Paranormal Series featuring Warlocks, Kilts and plenty of mischief.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

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.

My Thoughts on Love Potions


The best part of this book has to be the MacGregor clan – they are hysterical! The actual story was a bit stilted and lacks quite a bit of explanation, but the family? Yeah, they rather make this tale.

It almost feels like an afternoon read, and it serves as the introduction to an expansive family that each earn their own story. That alone makes it worth checking out, if you enjoy longer collections with familiar faces.

My Final Verdict on Love Potions

Decent Paranormal Romance with humorous side characters, all set to a theme that ties up in a HEA for these two romantics (they are not romantics).
