Für Schottland und die Liebe
Die Liebesgeschichte von Serena und Brigham hat mir gut gefallen. Beide sind sehr willensstarke Charaktere, die alles mit großer Intensität empfinden - sei es Liebe oder Hass. Serena muss feststellen, dass diese beiden Emotionen einander wirklich nahe liegen, als aus ihrem brennenden Hass auf alle Engländer Liebe für einen ganz bestimmten Engländer, nämlich Brigham, wird, egal, wie sehr sie sich dagegen wehrt. Ihr Gefühlschaos war gut dargestellt und die

A MacGregor Christmas by Nora Roberts consists of two previously published books by Nora Roberts: Rebellion (1988) and In from the Cold (1990) tied together by some of the characters who appear in both books although the first takes place in 1745 and the second in 1774. There is no Christmas scene in the first (300 of the 400 pages), but Christmas is prominent in the second. Although the dates and the settings of the two stories are different, the story line of both is identical. The first, ...more

This beautifully written book contains two stories of the Macgregor family set in the 1700s. In rebellion the year is 1745. It focuses on the Macgregor clan in Scotland Ian and Fiona and their children Coll, Serena, Gwen and Malcolm. Serena hates the English because they attacked her mother when she was a child. She is fiercely independent and hotheaded and has no plans to tie herself down to any man but things change when her brother Coll returns home when his English friend Brigham lord of ...more

Two stories in this book The first set in Scotland in the winter of 1745. The MacGregors are supporters of King Charles and Serena is the fiery daughter in the family with a strong will of her own and a hatred for the English. Serena's brother returns home with his friend Brigham who happens to be an English lord and the fireworks begin between Serena and Brigham Hatred turns into love but it is not an easy path.
Second story is set in America in 1776 with an injured minuteman Ian MacGregor a

I'm only giving this 3 stars because I was unaware this was already a published book when I bought it. I was also unaware that the first 3/4 of it would have nothing to do with Christmas at all. This is actually the full MacGregor historical novel, "Rebellion", and a short bonus novella, "In from the Cold". This book was originally published in April of 2012.

While they're wonderful stories, taking an old novel and slapping a Christmas cover on it right before Christmas to resell left me feeling

Für Schottland und die Liebe (4 Sterne):
Geschichten rund um Schottland können mich immer wieder begeistern und zu Tränen rühren. Die Liebesgeschichte sowie die entsprechenden historischen Details sind gut ausbalanciert und lassen einen durch die Seiten fliegen.

Vom Schicksal besiegelt (3 Sterne):
Leider bietet diese Geschichte nicht viel neues. Der historische Kontext ist zwar ein anderer -hier: amerikanischer Unabhängigkeitskrieg - jedoch sind sich die Personen der beiden Geschichten sehr

Not a bad read, though was wondering in the first story where Christmas was. Typically Mills and Boon style, with a splash of Scotland and Ireland and some rather gorgeous and bad English. Sex scenes, though not overly gaudy, so not perhaps for younger teens, maybe 18 up. Quick, easy read though don't expect Christmas until the second story.

I thought there would be more historical data, as I love to read about Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Scottish/British battles, etc., but there wasn't much.

I loved the characters and the time setting.

I have to admit it .....I really did not like this book. I found the romance between Serena MacGregor and her English lover, Brigham, very tiresome. The "romance" scenes made me want to throw the book down as he endlessly groped her. Yuck!.

The romances seemed like date rape in the age of #metoo. They kept fighting each other & the women said no. Also, I was disappointed that Serena & Brigham came to America & owned slaves. I guess freedom only extends to the white people in the story.

It was incredibly similar to Outlander the series, so it seems that the story is similar to something already written. I did enjoy reading it though.

Meine Meinung:
Ich muss beichten, dass dies mein erster Roman von Nora Roberts ist, weil ich finde (Schande über mein Haupt), dass die Bücher von ihr langweilig sind, weil man schon nach den ersten beiden Seiten wie das Buch ausgeht. Ein bisschen wie bei den Rosamunde Pilcher Filmen. Ich habe zwar schon einige Bücher von ihr angefangen wie z.B. diese Jahreszeiten Bücher, aber die habe mich nie überzeugt und deswegen hat es mich echt Überwindung gekostet dieses Buch anzufangen, aber das hat sich

Zwei wunderbare Romane über den Beginn der Mac Gregors. Einfacher Schreibstil, man ist sofort in der Geschichte drin, die Protagonisten sind einem auf Anhieb sympathisch, eine schöne Liebesgeschichte mit einem typischen hin und her von Nora Roberts. Die Vorgeschichte der Mac Gregors muss man nicht zwingend vorher gelesen haben, aber es ist zu empfehlen.
