"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.

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 whos 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 hes 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 metone taken from the lab where she worksmay have been a powerful aphrodisiac, she wonders whether their new romance was chemically induced. Adams screaming groupies and a fake fiancée cooked up as fodder for the tabloids play into her insecurities, and she cant bear to tell him the truth. Theres a funny running gag of Erins mothers horrendous attempts to set her up with inferior men, including a dentist who takes her to Applebees 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 Erins.
