Synopses & Reviews
Fictional love potions date back at least to the tale of Tristan and Isolde; in contrast to that heavy tragedy this love potion romance which pairs up the lead singer for a rock band with a biochemist who’s also an amateur singer/songwriter is light and fluffy. When Eden Sinclair meets a lanky and tattooed musician named Adam Copeland she has no idea he’s that Adam Copeland a megafamous rock star. They spend a passionate night together and make plans for more. But when Eden discovers that the scent she wore when they met—one taken from the lab where she works—may have been a powerful aphrodisiac she wonders whether their new romance was chemically induced. Adam’s screaming groupies and a fake fiancée cooked up as fodder for the tabloids play into her insecurities and she can’t bear to tell him the truth. There’s a funny running gag of Eden mother’s horrendous attempts to set her up with inferior men including a dentist who takes her to Applebee’s for a date (and orders for her) but debut author Marlowe offers little in the way of tension or conflict beyond some interference from a stereotypically snarky coworker of Eden.

"An amazing first novel." -Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author
In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who's swept off her feet by a rock star--but is it love or just a chemical reaction?...
Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland--international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she's already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed...
Suddenly Eden, who's more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn't being honest. She can't bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume--and risk being ditched in turn...
Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships--why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love.
