Coll MacGregor, eldest son of the MacGregor clan laird, returns from Paris with his closest friend Brigham Langston, earl Ashburn, an English nobleman. Coll and Brigham are Jacobites, as is the MacGregor family, who are willing to risk all to put their Stuart King back on the throne of Scotland and England. The two men travel together to Scotland to meet and gather the clans in preparation for the arrival of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, Bonnie Prince Charlie, and war.

When they reach the MacGregor home in the Highlands, Brigham is prepared to meet Coll\'s family, but he is taken totally unaware by the beautiful, vibrant, hot tempered Serena MacGregor, Coll\'s eldest sister. Sparks fly and tempers flare, as Serena makes her views known about all Englishmen, and Brig, the \'Sassenach,\' in particular. As war plans are fleshed out, Brig and Serena fall in lust and then in love. The characters are wonderful and the mixture of humor and intensity, with the historical background, make for a winning combination.

I read this because she's such a popular writer, I wanted to what all the fuss was about. I was yawning at the beginning, because it wasn't really sucking me into the fairly routine historical romance novel plot. Later on, though, I have to admit that there were passages that were well written enough for the reader be caught up in the action.

The Gabaldon novels do this time period much better; this one feels rushed. Large blocks of time and background action are explained away in one paragraph. It seems as though the interesting, well-written passages are always sandwiched between less gripping filler. Good if you want a quick read that progresses faster. But then, most people who read this are trying to catch up on the history behind a popular (more modern) series of hers.

I found that sometimes her writing and imagery created clear and plausible portraits in your mind - and sometimes similar passages just went bad somewhere along the way and make you want to roll your eyes at the overwrought cliche.

Not the worst romance novel in the world (by far) and not the best historical fiction either. I think Liz Carlye is doing the same thing with steamier results. (Yeah, she is bit looser on keeping to the historical accuracy sometimes, but that's not really why you're reading it, right?) I guess if you don't want to go in for the 1,500+ pages or so of the Gabaldon series covering this subject, read this one and you'd be satisfied.

This Harlequin Historical book is the beginning of the MacGregor saga and you couldn't ask for a better beginning. You can see where Daniel MacGregor gets his spunkiness - his ancestor Serena is just like him. Serena MacGregor is a red-gold haired angel face with a personality of a wildcat, but that didn't deter Brigham Langston. This romantic story is filled with love, laughs, war and rivalry.

This book traces back the roots of the MacGregor clan. It's an interesting story and a must read for anyone that enjoys reading about the MacGregors. It tells about the English lord who met the the Scottish lass and the sparks flew. The rest, so they say, is history.

Serena MacGregor is a red-gold haired angel face with a personality of a wildcat, but that didn't deter Brigham Langston. This romantic story is filled with love, laughs, war and rivalry.

As typical Nora Roberts' style, the reader can really "see" the Scottish highlands and feel the emotions of the characters as Roberts brings them to life. Very descriptive and emotional, REBELLION leaves nothing to the readers' imagination regarding how the main players feel or think.

I originally read REBELLION after I had read several of the MacGregor books and enjoyed comparing Daniel to his Aunt Serena. They are both full of life, and eager to share their joy with others, but you'll always know exactly where you stand with either of them. I wouldn't want to get on either of their bad side. They are the types that would make bitter enemies, or fervent friends, and their antics are enjoyable when told by Roberts!

Don't miss this book - the one that started it all!

One look at the ravishing red-haired beauty and Brigham Langston was captivated. But though Serena MacGregor had the face of an angel, she was a wildcat who spurned his advances with a rapier-sharp tongue. To hot-tempered Serena, Brigham was just another Englisman to be despised. But in the arms of the dashing and dangerous English lord, the proud Scottish beauty's hatred soon melted with the heat of their passion.

"Rebellion" is a wonderful light read. I went through it in one evening and became quickly absorbed. If you are a fan of historical fiction, and/or Scottish romances, you will be sucked in to the world Nora Roberts creates.
