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.
Lydia’s was raised by her grandmother, a green witch or a naturalist and she had taught her everything she knew about herbs and making potions. When her grandmother died she left everything to Lydia including Lydia’s childhood home. Lydia is spooked by the feeling that something is coming, something really powerful. She meets a beautiful man on her way to the post office and is immediately attracted to him.
Erik is an immortal warlock and is looking for a new home for his clan. When he helps a young woman pulling a cart filled with packages he is instantly entranced with her. He feels like there is something special about the reaction that they are both having to one another but his priority is finding his family a new safe home that will protect them from non-magick users. Finding Lydia is the icing on the cake for Erik. He had given up on finding his fiorghra but he could still enjoy a beautiful woman and Lydia attracted him like no one else ever had.
