Amazon.com Review

The eagerly anticipated sequel to The MacGregor Brides is here! And this time family patriarch Daniel MacGregor has his sights set on his three grandsons, cousins D.C., Duncan, and Ian, each of whom is very aware of Daniel's matchmaking machinations, and each equally determined to avoid the tender trap known as matrimony. The MacGregor Grooms comprises three extraordinary stories about the inexplicable attraction of opposites: D.C., the passionate, temperamental artist, and Layna, the coolly beautiful businesswoman; Duncan, the riverboat gambler with the impeccable pedigree, and Cat, the tempting torch singer from the mean streets of Chicago's South Side; and Ian, the worldly, self-confident lawyer, and Naomi, the bookish butterfly just emerging from her chrysalis. Nobody sets the scene for steamy, sensitive loving better than New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, who continues her unmatched string of successes with The MacGregor Grooms! --Alison Trinkle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Of all the Nora Roberts series, "The MacGregors" is a hands-down favorite for a majority of her fans, including this reviewer. It features one of the best and most loveable of Nora's characters: the irrascible, meddling, proud and stubborn patriarch of the MacGregor Clan: Daniel MacGregor.
As this book opens, The MacGregor is meddling in his family's affairs once again. He is chafing at the bit to see his three single grandsons married and producing babies for the Clan (because his "dear Anna" is "fretting for more great grandchildren") and no notion of privacy or personal boundaries are going to get in his way!
His first task is to arrange a blind date between D.C., described as having "warrior looks," once the First Son in the White House, and now a temperamental artist, with quiet, composed and very lovely (although she doesn't believe it) Layna Drake, the heir to Drake's Department Store, an upscale institution renowned for its elegance and good taste. Trapped into the date, D.C. and Layne meet--and dislike each other on the spot. What happens next? Read the book and see...
Second grandson Duncan Blade is a dangerous blend of Comanche and Scots, and is nobody to mess with. He runs a gambling riverboat, part of the highly successful chain of hotels and casinos run by his parents. But the riverboat is his idea and his business. And when his beloved but meddling grandfather Daniel wheedles Duncan into accepting a singer for the boat's lounge, Duncan is highly displeased. Enter Cat Ferrell, a foxy, purring powerhouse of a singer with a flirtatious manner that hides a sensitive and hurt soul. No way is Cat getting involved with her gorgeous new boss. No way is Duncan getting involved with this pert and petite singer.

I just love the MacGregor series!! He is such a wonderful and well-developed character. If you haven't read the book where he and his wife, Anna, meet, pick it up!! You will learn so much more about him and about Anna who is also a terrific character.

The three oldest grandsons are now Daniel MacGregor's marriage targets. First he conspires with an old friend who is both D.C. MacGregor's godmother as well as godmother to Layna Drake of Drake Department stores. D.C. has moved back to the Washington, DC area from California and other places. Being an artist, he does love to move around and has finally come back to Washington, DC where he mostly grew up in the White House. D.C. is sloppy and in the few months he has been back has not even finished unpacking. He often forgets to eat or wash dishes or do laundry unless he has to!! His grandfather calls him and asks him as a favor to his godmother and Daniel's friend to escort Layna to a charity dinner. In the meantime, Layna's godmother/Daniel's friend is telling Layna that D.C. needs a date to this charity dinner and would she please let D.C. escort her? Layna is unsure of herself and not warm, loving and passionate like D.C. as he grew up in a home and extended family filled with love whereas Layna parents carried on a "civilized" marriage of basically keeping out of each other's ways and having affairs as long as they were discreet. Sparks fly when they meet and dislike each other on sight. A wonderful story.

Duncan Blade is the son of Justin Blade and Serena MacGregor who together own several hotel/casinos in places like Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

I prefer her suspense novels like Montana Sky. I do really like the trillogies - especially the Born In series. I enjoy when the characters are brought back in other books. That way you get to keep enjoying the other people. I really like the MacGregors. The old man is hilarious and I love all his matchmaking. I love that the family really loves each other and cares about the other family members. The MacGregor series definitely makes you feel good.

No one writes handsome men better than Nora Roberts. I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve read these MacGregor books. Every so often I’ll have to have a MacGregor fix and I will reread the Brides and then the Grooms [second generation MacGregors]. Other times I’ll read about their parents’ romance which is another set of books that are also fun to read.
The MacGregor is the patriarch of his family and feels it is his duty to see that everyone [first his children and then his grandchildren] finds their perfect match and gives him [and his wife of course] grandbabies and great-grandbabies. He is hilarious in his machinations and schemes in matchmaking.

"The MacGregor Grooms" features three stories of The MacGregor three grandsons: D.C., Duncan and Ian. He had found suitable brides for these three grandsons of his. The ladies were all from good, strong stock, as The MacGregor always said.
For D.C.'s story, it started with The MacGregor asking D.C. to escort Layna to a charity ball.
For Duncan's part, he was recommended a singer, Cat, for his gambling boat, the Princess.
As for Ian's story, he was asked by The MacGregor to pick up a few books at the Brightstone Books where he met the full partner and vice president of the bookstore, Naomi.
The stories in this volume consist of pure, sweet romance. The characters were all perfect, that is, handsome/beautiful and rich and from good families. It will be a good read only for those who love perfect love stories. Others can drop this read.
