Bad Potions by Michelle Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
aidan, part of the royal guard to the queen, has done it again : didn't think before speaking. this time his punishment/curse takes him away from the court and lands him in las vegas. as lady luck would have it he has a chance encounter with marion. she's beautiful but something about her feels wrong, something is troubling her. as he tries to get closer, marion does the complete opposite, she runs as fast as she can!!
marion doesn't like the attention she got from the handsome elf. she prefers to stay indoors and work on her potions. she needs to pass this class to get further in her education and move on to more helpful spells. after a talk with her potion teacher, marion is at an end. her teacher basically told her she'll flunk her class and the main reason her potions aren't working is because she's lacking an important ingredient : having been in love before. once she knows the feeling she can make her potions with love.
she doesn't now what to do but then the idea strikes her that the stranger might be of help after all. even-though she left him behind she had to admit he made her feel safe and cared for.
will marion and aiden find love? what happens when more of his reason of being here is revealed?
and what about the person that made marion want to learn more about magic?
there is a phrase they say sometimes : you have to let go of the one you love to give them a chance to get back to you. that fits this story to a T!!
loved the story and i'm more then thrilled to read more stories in this world/series.

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
