It worked with his granddaughters. Now Daniel MacGregor, powerful patriarch of the MacGregor clan, wants to see his three handsome, eligible-but stubbornly single-grandsons married. So he's found just the women to temp, tease and torture D.C., Duncan and Ian all the way to the altar.

And you can bet Daniel will be sitting by with his feet up, a glass of whiskey in hand, smugly watching his plans unfold...

Enjoyed the book...Look for the sequence to this book titled "MacGregor Brides"

Passionate painter DC meets department store ice princess Layna in the first story. Gambling riverboat owner Duncan connects with sultry singer Cat in the second story. Finally shy bookstore owner Naomi meets and weds lawyer Ian in the last one. Fun, quick read with glimpses of characters from other books in the MacGregor series.

I had to read this after reading The MacGregor Brides. Great story. I love how MacGregor has his own monologue before each story. This has stories of 3 of his grandsons, just like the Brides had stories of 3 of his granddaughters. Very quick read, love the characters and how you see others you have read about before.

While part of a series (The MacGregors), this book doesn't require that you've read or will read the others to get a complete story. Also interesting is that the focus is on matchmaking for the men in a family.

n her new novel, The MacGregor Grooms, Noraholics get a healthy shot of three virile young men, maddening in their obsessions and irresistible in their attraction. For those of you who have not yet discovered Nora Roberts's delightful MacGregor clan, they're a Scottish Kennedyesque clan but without the dark secrets three generations of MacGregors, all falling in love, all not knowing what's best for them until true love appears. In this spin on the family tree, Roberts uses the "Private Memoirs of Daniel Duncan MacGregor" also known as Grandpa to introduce the three men in question. They are D. C., Duncan, and Ian, all grandchildren of Daniel Duncan MacGregor, father of a former President of the United States, not to mention one of the most powerful patriarchs alive. And he wants something now, before any more time passes: He wants to see these three grandsons married, and fast.

What follows is an often hilarious and always touching book about these three young men as they find the love that has somehow been directed their very separate ways. In the first story, D. C. is a hunky young artist living the semi-bohemian life in Washington, D.C. His father was once President, so he knows the city well, but he's opted for the more low-profile work of painting and sketching over politics. Butwhenhis grandfather tells D. C. that he must perform an unpleasant task, D. C. decides that he can bring himself to dress up one night of the year to escort Layna Drake to a charity ball. The MacGregor (as the old patriarch is known) tells him that this is a one-time favor, and that Layna is not the right kind of young lady for D. C. at all. The reverse psychology works like a charm, and try as he might to resist the enchanting Layna, D. C. MacGregor is hooked from the moment he sees her. Only problem is, Layna has other ideas. She's not at all into the chaotic way that D. C. lives she likes some form and regimentation to her life. Layna's own parents were what D. C.'s mother calls "surface people" a couple that's all polish, but without depth. Layna is caught between wanting true love and wanting an orderly life. Can she have both? And will the electric charge that D.C. feels whenever he's around Layna be enough to spark her interest in him? Mayhem and passion ensue!

In the second tale, Duncan Blade, son of the casino-owning MacGregor branch, has his hands full with the one love of his life "The Comanche Princess." It's a casino riverboat that travels on the Mississippi from St. Louis to New Orleans and back. Everything looks like it's going to go off without a hitch for Duncan's floating casino except for the entertainment. Cat Farrell is sexy and has a great singing voice, but she's driving Duncan to distraction by not showing up on time. But when they meet, will Duncan be able to keep from falling in love with this "wild" Cat?

In the final section of The MacGregor Grooms, we meet Ian MacGregor, a talented and wealthy young lawyer in Boston. It looks as if Ian is being groomed for a career in politics. But as the youngest attorney in the family firm, he feels more often than not like an errand boy, and his first errand is to go meet Naomi Brightstone, the young lady who is going to be running the Boston bookselling institution known as Brightstone's Books. As Ian and Naomi grow close, the story soars into a delightful tale of books and barristers. Ian's tale is the most dazzling of the three, and Roberts wisely saved the best for last. But make no mistake about it, all three tales are sheer delights. As with her other MacGregor novels such as The MacGregor Brides and The Winning Hand, Nora Roberts shines!

My mom gave me this book & I wasn't too sure about reading it at first. But one night I was bored so I grabbed it. The stories move along at a nice pace and I found the characters engaging. Especially "old man" MacGregor. It is a fun book and I would recomend it for light reading.

A fun way to spend an hour or two - Nora Roberts at her best when it comes to these sorts of very brief anthologies. There's only so much you can do with so little page space but she manages to fit in a lot of characterization and not disappoint the affection a lot of readers have for the MacGregors.
