Have a problem in my JavaScript code

var topNumber = prompt ("Please, enter a first number ");

var useTopNumber = parseInt (topNumber);

var bottomNumber = prompt ("Please, enter a second number ");

var useBottomNumber = parseInt (bottomNumber);

var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * (useTopNumber - useBottomNumber + 1)) + useBottomNumber;

var message = "<p>Our final number " + randomNumber + " will be situate between " + useTopNumber + " and" + useBottomNumber ".</p>";


In chrome console : var message - unexpected string

At the line starting with "var message" a plus sign is missing in front of ".</p>"
