All The Possibilities (The MacGregors #3)

There could be nothing between Shelby Campbell and Senator Alan MacGregor. Alan's father had said a MacGregor would as soon have a badger in the house as a Campbell. Shelby's response was that given the family's idea of housekeeping, a badger wouldn't be that unusual. But the long-standing feud couldn't stop the attraction.

Nothing was going to keep Alan from getting what h

A typical Nora Roberts book; I really enjoyed the heroine Shelby. She is an artist, lives as she pleases and refuses to be bored. Her father was a Senator, running for President, when he was murdered in front of his children. Shelby adored her father, she was only eleven, but she was determined to live life to the fullest, and never marry a politician. She would not risk that kind of heartbreak again. Nor would she be molded to be a polished politician’s wife.
But when she met Alan MacGregor, an

É já certo e sabido que Nora Roberts não é uma autora a seguir por todo o tipo de leitores. No entanto, para leitores como eu, são livros que de certa forma nos permitem relaxar sem qualquer tipo de pressão associada. Na maioria das vezes sabemos exactamente o que nos espera. E esta obra não é excepção.

"Todas as possibilidades" é o terceiro livro da série "Os MacGreggor", facto que só descobri depois de pegar nele! Mas, como seria de esperar, é um livro que se lê de forma independente dos seus a

I want to read the book that the Hero is the Politician for long time. I love Alan. He is intelligent and witty. Denial MacGregor, Alan's Father is the most Fantastic!! He is so clever and witty. Shelby, the Heroine, she is strong and intelligent, so perfect for being MacGregor's daughter-in-love. The Dialogue is Great!! It's Sharp, especially the Auguring between Denial and Shelby. It made me WOW wow WOW, then laugh out loud! lol! I LOVE the Playing Card scene, as well! this scene is

Očaravajuća, lagana priča. Zaista sam uživala u još jednoj priči o MekGregorovima. Volim što se u svakoj narednoj priči pojavljuju i likovi iz prethodnih delova.

George Bernard Shaw once said: "The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react." . In the third book of the MacGregor series, this is pretty much the hidden and often implied moral.

Alan MacGregor, Daniel's firstborn, is the only child of his that hasn't found his sweetheart yet. His career as a Senator is a success, and he has a very promising path to presidency ahead of him, should he decide to tread that way. Marriage is not something he cares for, at least not until his so

As Alan finds himself falling in love with this wild women, she tries not to fall to the charm of the dashing Senator.

I admit to reading this almost by accident....and yes, the image of accidentally reading a book is humorous, but...I thought I was opening one book on my Kindle, & it turned out to be this one, instead. I would classify this as a happy reading accident, though. I always enjoy Nora Roberts, and I find it more than agreeable to occasionally go back to her earlier beginnings, too. Her MacGregor books have become almost "required reading" for Roberts fans, but I somehow managed to slip by them, ...more

My Thoughts:

This was a fun book. Alan MacGregor sounds more rigid than his brother Caine but since he needed to charm Shelby, and she’s nothing like I expected for him, taking in consideration he’s going to try be president.

Shelby knows all about politics since her father was a president but since he was murdered in front off her and she never really tried to accept to have feelings and lose those people too.

So this book is all about Shelby fighting her love with the wrong person, she swore neve

This was a wonderful romance. Alan MacGregor is an up and coming young politician in D.C. Shelby Campbell is a free spirit with wild red hair and engaging personality. These 2 exact opposites meet at a D.C. political party. It's love at first sight. Alan is smitten and pursues her and she tries not to allow her feelings for him to accept him. She does not want a politician for a boyfriend or husband.
At first Alan doesn't understand her reluctance then a mutual friend tells him about the death of

Continuing the theme of the MacGregors, again.
This time, time for Alan and Shelby.
Alan is a senator, on the fast track to being president. Totally not related, but I'd vote for him if he was running right now.
Anyways, he runs into Shelby Campbell. MacGregors and Campbells do not get along, supposedly, but they seem to be just fine ;)
Shelby is from a political family. Her father was a senator before he was murdered. He was murdered in front of Shelby, and her brother Grant, a reclusive artist.

Shelby Campbell, an eccentric artist watched her father get assassinated on the presidential campaign trail, and vowed that she wouldn't become involved with politicians, but Alan MacGregor has other plans. One glimpse of Shelby is all it takes for Alan to lose his heart.

Falling in love is easy for both of them, but Alan has a harder time convincing Shelby to marry him knowing that he has presidential aspirations. Losing her father sparked a fear in Shelby that is hard to overcome, but loving Al

Another really enjoyable book in the MacGregor series this time it's Alan's book who much to his father Daniels disgust falls for a Campbell. Not only is she a Campbell she won't marry his son is this girl right in the head?

As always, another light-weight easy to read romance. Very much a formalaic plotline, but still a fun read. Also quite disturbing in the way the sex scenes play out as verging on rape or sexual assault, and the reinforcement of the stereotype that a woman's "No" really means "Yes". I know she published these in the 80s but from my memory no still meant no even then.

Not one of Nora Roberts' best. A bland read. It felt as if she wasn't even trying to make something memorable (in a good way). Everything was too fast with too many loose ends. Moreover, I usually love the leading man in her novels. But not in this one. MacGregor is a manipulative asshole and Shelby's just plain weak-willed and gullible.

I love you, Nora, and I have to remind myself that the 80s were a different time. The heroine clearly tells the hero "no" on multiple occasions, but he just steamrolls right over her objections and continues to take her out, fall in love with her, seduce her. At one point, he has a "flash of anger" over her physically pulling away from him. For serious?
