Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

Believe it or not, things steam up in Book 6. Hormones are raging, and it would seem everyone at Hogwarts runs into girl or boy trouble. Beware of Celestina Warbeck's lyrics. She's Mrs. Weasley's favorite singer, and she gives Otis Redding a run for his money. Here's a sampling of her musical stylings:

"Oh, come and stir my cauldron,
And if you do it right,
I'll boil you up some hot strong love
To keep you warm tonight."
(16.53)
