Brooding loner Preston McQuinn's new apartment, like his life, was just the way he wanted it - dark and empty. But when sunny Cybil Campbell came barging into his well-ordered gloom, he couldn't deny a grudging fascination with his bright, bubbly neighbor. And then she tried to hire her date! Preston thought he'd closed the door on love for good, so why was he sud ...more

I discovered Nora Roberts' books my freshman year in college. Rather, my college roommate forced them on me and I devoured almost her entire catalog and still continue to do so. To this day, we have really great conversations that go something like this:

F: Oh! She is a MacGregor. Her mom was the woman with the broken-down car that married...
M: The recluse cartoonist in Maine! Right! But what about that piano one?
F: The piano player with the red-headed Stanislaski daughter?
M: Oh right, that's Wa
The MacGregor Serisinden bir hikaye daha. Daniel MacGregor sen inanılmaz bir adamsın. Her şeyi ayarlayıp gerisini doğa kanuna bırakıyorsun.

Gizemli Komşu Genieve ve Grant Campbell'in kızları Cybil'in hikayesi idi...Yine iki sanatçının aşkı..YineDaniel McGregor ve her şeyi planlayıp birbirlerine uygun gördüğü iki kişi Preston McQuinn ve Cybil Campbell'i bir araya getirmesi hiç de zor olmadı..

Şimdiye kadar da bu koca İskoç yanılmadı ve maya tuttu..Preston tam da Grant Campbell'e benzeyen bir adamd
The last installment in one of my favorite series. I'm really sorry to see it end, but c'est la vie.

Bir Nora klasiği daha bitti. Bu kadının kalemini sevmeyen var mı acaba merak ediyorum. Cidden güçlü bir kalemi var ve okuru kendinden geçirtiyor.

Her neyse bu kitabı aldığımda okuyacağım Nora karakterlerinin MacGregor ailesiyle bağlantılı olacağını hiç tahmin etmezdim. Meğersem seriye dahil olan bir kitapmış. Aslında kısmen bağlantılı çünkü bir MacGregor'un hikayesi değil... Dıdısının dıdısının dıdısı cinsinden bir tanışıklık var ama olsun yine de MacGregor
I love Nora Roberts and this had this story plus another one in it.

I will get around to readin all the Mcgregor stories.

Nora Roberts always takes me in and i feel apart of the story.

SERIES/STAND ALONE: #11 in MacGregor series

CHARACTERS: Cybil Campbell/artist -- writes/draws a newspaper comic strip; Preston McQuinn

FIRST LINES: "So…have you talked to him yet?"

COMMENTS: Even tho' this considered the last (#11) in the MacGregor series it reads very well as a stand-alone. A nice romance between a very outgoing woman
The main character was just too much. Very self centered and always the victim. I didn't like that. I hated that Preston always ended up groveling when he wasn't the bad guy. Cybill over stayed, created situations, then didn't like the outcome. I love the McGregor Series... This one, probably the least.

In New York, people were supposed to ignore their neighbours. But that was a rule that Cybil Campbell had never learned. When the sunny brunette knocks on her new neighbour's door, she expected that they would make a connection - after all, she knew everyone else in the apartment block. Preston McQuinn wasn't interested in small talk. He was in Manhattan to finish a job and leave as quickly as possible - until Cybil's sweet nature and big green eyes captured his interest. Cybil was intrigued by

Este libro lo he adorado. Simplemente maravilloso. Es una historia tierna, sencilla, dulce y divertida. Como todas las novelas de NR el protagonista es P.E.R.F.E.C.T.O *-* Como siempre ha creado una hermosa historia de amor entre Preston y Cybil.
Ella es hermosa como un hada, dulce, alegre y sensible, un poco entrometida pero gentil. Mientras Preston es reservado, misterioso y un poco peligroso aunque en el fondo es inteligente, serio, preocupado y guapo. Ambos son increibles y sus conversacione
I enjoyed the MacGregor stories, no surprises here, but good quick romantic read.
Aaaagh! Romantic cheese-fest! Love it.
ı liked :) Love you Cybil & Preston

I am putting this in the "borrowed from friends and family" because technically I bought this book for my friend Joy and just haven't gotten around to giving to her [probably because it was buried in a bag full of books from the last library sale and I had totally forgotten about it], so I thought I would read it again before getting it off to her.
For some reason I LOVE The McGregors and I REALLY love this book. So it was an excellent re-read. I really need to get back to reading what I was li
Daniel MacGregor is at it again. This time he's setting up Grant and Gennie's daughter Cybil. As part of his family, the MacGregor has decided that Preston McQuinn is prefect for Cybil. While construction is going on in Preston's Connecticut home, Daniel offers him an apartment in New York, conveniently right next door to Cybil.

Preston is a loner that's been hurt very badly in the past. Spending most of his time alone, writing plays, he sparks Cybil's interest with the mystery of who he is and w
For Nora Roberts this must be one of her in-between books because it wasn’t her high standard I’ve enjoyed in the past. I know she’s a very prolific writer, having around 2 to 4 books published a year.
You see, I don’t know about that, because in the end it’s about quality and not quantity. This author writes so many books that – in the end - there are more than a few of her books out there that aren’t outstanding or original. I think the quality of her delivered work is starting to suffer. This

Tinggal di New York adalah keinginan Cybil, dan berkarir sebagai penulis komik dalam koran seperti yang dilakukan oleh ayahnya adalah kesenangan, bukan pekerjaan. Cybil memanng wanita unik dengan banyak kesukaan, dia pernah belajar balet, menekuni dunia binatang, pintar masak, bisa melukis. Tetapi setelah dipikir-pikir dia tidak akan menyukai pekerjaannya. Dengan sepiring cookies, dia mencoba untuk mengenal Preston Mcquinn. Hmm..cookiesnya memang sangan nikmat, apalagi untuk pria penyendiri sepe ...more
Ahh bir MacGregor kitabı da bitti ne yazık ki. Keşke biraz daha uzun olabilseler.

Yine çok beğendim. Cybil'in o sıcak, neşeli karakteriyle Preston'ın o kibirli ve soğuk karakteri birleşince nefis bir çift çıktı ortaya! Ayrıca Daniel'ın 90 yaşındaki haliyle okumak da yine oldukça eğlenceliydi. Ve tabi ki Grant ve Genevieve çiftini de ilerleyen yaşlarında hala aşık olarak okumak çok hoşuma gitti. Ben de Genevieve gibi merak ediyorum Cybil gerçekten de babasının başka bir versiyonunu nasıl buldu. :
Maja Devic
I loved this book. Nora Roberts really delivered it this time, just like every other time. I'm a big fan of hers.
Its a story about Preston, Mr. Mysterious as Cybil call him till she finally gets him to tell her his name, and Cybil, bubbly girl next door. Preston moved in a apartment complex in New York temp. till his house gets finished. Cybil stops by with cookies to welcome him into the building, but he ends up being really rude to her and he basically slams the door in her face....She thinks
Richard Stephens
A solid four stars. I had forgotten how much I enjoy reading Nora Roberts.

An awesome story with the two main characters falling for each other but both just as pig headed an stubborn to am it to themseleves let alone each other. Will they get together?

Some real laugh out loud moments and classic lines/quotes. Highly recommend reading this

This story is part of the MacGregor series. Cybil Campbell is only related by marriage to the family but that doesn't seem to matter. This story follows the idea of the MacGregor Brides / Grooms in which Daniel finds the perfect person and puts them in his grandchild's radius and lets things happen.

This was a fun story and romance. I liked Preston and his issues were real and justified based on an horrific personal experience in his past. When you get the whole story you understand his actions.
Kris - My Novelesque Life

I did not care for this series. I felt that there was more romance than story which did not interest me. I did finish the series to see if it gets any better and also felt obligated to finish series at that time in my life.
Amanda Kern

That is what this book was to me. I give it four stars only because of the ending. It was,a little to easy for me. Especially after....well you will have to read the book to find out.
Okay so there were some good LOL moments in it, which is why it gets 3 stars. I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts books simply because they make great mindless brain fluff reads that help me pass the time when I'm not in the mood for more complex story lines. Unfortunately once you've read a few of Roberts books you've basically read them all, highly predictable and yet I still read them! I think if she shortened these stories so they didn't needlessly drag on for ages to the end it would pack a bette ...more
They're so good, you hope the series continues. This was my second time reading the complete saga, I just love it every time.
Yine süper bir MacGregor hikayesiydi :D
Cybil'e bayıldım.. Hele McQuinn ile tanışmadan önce onun hakkında yazdığı senaryolara bittim :) McQuinn'i de çok sevdim okur okumaz bana Grant'i hatırlatmıştı cidden aynı onun gibiymiş bunu da kanıtladı zaten ilerleyen sayfalarda :D Grant süper bi baba olmuş ama onu böyle okumak güzeldi gerçekten :)
Veee tabi ki Daniel!! Ahhh sen yok musun sen beni yine mest ettin :D Bu sefer de burnunu sokmadan duramadı çok da iyi yaptı ve her zamanki gibi yine başarılı ol
Debra McEathron
This is another story with the MacGregor. This was about Cybil a granddaughter and the match he made for her.
Kiki Miranti
Oh wow. I finally finished the macgregor series. Reading the series from book one has been such a fun time for me. Although i am a bit disappointed at how the author didn't give us a peek at how the characters have gone through with their lives, buy in each spin-off book we got a glimpse at the original characters and how they are all happily married with their respective others.
