Summary

#1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Nora Roberts enchants again with this beloved classic about the passionate and headstrong MacGregor family.

Daniel MacGregor is at it again.

At age ninety, there is nothing the powerful patriarch of the MacGregor clan would like more than to see his three eldest granddaughters happily married. So Daniel MacGregor has handpicked three unsuspecting candidates he believes would make perfect husbands. But this might be his biggest matchmaking challenge yet; his granddaughters are so focused on their careers that marriage is the last thing on their minds. It's a good thing Daniel has a few tricks left up his sleeve....

Love/Hate

I loved Laura and Royce’s book. Both head strong and very compatible. No complaints about them but I disliked Gwen’s story not because of her but her live interest. I detest when the male lead tries to force the woman to confess her feelings for him or to move faster than she’s ready for. The guilt trip and emotional manipulation just pisses me of. Julia’s story was better, like enemies to lover and the bit at the end where they’re both trying to get each other to admit their feelings was a love/hate thing for me. I just prefer when the male lead does the confessing so I’m biased. Overall I liked the girls, Laura mostly.

cringe worthy story

the narrator is a little bit better than the stories and sounds like she has a speech impediment

MacGregor "You Know It Worries Your Mother"

Where does The MacGregor Brides rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the top books in the series as N.R. really put her heart into the quick wit dialogue. You do not have to listen in order, but you do need to buy all of them or miss out on a great classic series. You must love the MacGregor's wonderful devotion to manipulating all his love ones.

What did you like best about this story?

The quick wit and sexy under tones of all the men in this story. I love the way Laura talks back "granpa" MacGregor.

Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

Royce deep sexy voice, Caine & Ian protectiveness, and of course the MacGregor

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This one gives you the warm deep smiles as you listen to it. "You can't out cage the MacGregor"

Any additional comments?

thank you audible for 50% sale as I could buy all but 2 of this stories at once.

Listened in one day!!

This is my very first Nora Roberts novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I couldn't stop listening to these beautiful stories; and finished it in one day!! Being part Irish AND Scottish, I truly appreciated the brogue used by the narrator. Brilliantly written and narrated. Now I must read/listen to the other MacGregor stories!!

Stories are great; narrator BAD

I loved the stories. But the last story I was really disliking the ‘heroine’ because of the voice used by the narrator. Very grating and irritating. I finally gave up and just read the last story from a hard copy.

Love the story. Hate the narration

Great story. Love the interplay. All three were different and enjoyable. Didn't like the voice of the narrator
