AMAZING.
If you've read the MacGregor series so far, you know that Daniel and Anna the parents and patriarch of the family play a major role at cajoling their kids to find their soulmates.
We finally get their incredible story. (I always adore flashback parent tales!)
The book begins in the present where an injured Daniel lies in the OR while Anna has her family to support her..
Flashback to 40 years prior when Daniel is a young and charming self made billionaire who's finding his niche in the rich

Cute... i like Ana and Daniel's story more than Serena's.... Not sure about others in between - haven't read them yet!

I am a great fan of Nora Roberts but mostly of her longer books. Her category romances are not in my taste. For Now, Forever was too old school and too eye-rolling to me. It was lacking in character and relationship development.

I didn't like Daniel. He is bossy and much more alpha that I can stand. He decides that Anna will become his wife and he completely doesn't care that she has other plans. He tells her that he will not change for her but expects for her to do otherwise. And Anna, she fight

Amaaann Anna ne uğraştırmış Daniel'ı yaaaa inatçı kadın :D Daniel'e olan aşkım daha da perçinlendi bayılıyorum kendisine... Şu ana kadar serinin en iyi kitabı buydu benim için bayıldım... Yeni bir bebiş geldi diğeri de yolda :D Şimdi seride baya gerilere gideceğim yeni kitapta ama daha sonrakiler sanırım torunlara kayacak gibi :)

Um livro que desde o início que já sabemos como termina, no entanto a autora foi bastante inteligente que quando pensamos que o livro será sobre os netos de Daniel e Anna, esta surpreendo-nos com algo completamente indiferente e que nos prende desde o início ao fim...

Nora Roberts gerçekten kalemine hayran olunacak bir yazar... Hele ki MacGregor serisi muhteşem... Serinin diğer kitaplarında Daniel'i okuyorduk ama bunda Daniel'in gençken nasıl olduğunu ve Anna ile nasıl tanıştığını da okuduk.

MacGregor serisinin 5. kitabı ve bu kitapta Daniel kaza geçiriyor ve karısı Anna onun yanındayken tanıştıkları günden evlendikleri zamana kadar olan anıları anımsıyor... Kitap inanılmaz akıcıydı nasıl başladım nasıl bitti anlamadım. Gerçi MacGregor serisinin diğer kitaplar

Kitaba bayıldığımı söylememe gerek var mı? İçinde Daniel olur da sevilmez mi? O adamın en büyük hayranı benim ve bu değişmedi hatta arttı diyebilirim. Mağara adamı tavırlar birine ancak bu kadar yakışabilir. Hayır yani normalde öküz ya demem lazım ama diyemiyorum ki. Çooook tatlıydı. Saçımı başımı yolmam gereken sahnelerde bile güldüm. Anna'ya gelince ona bazen kızdım ama daha çok hayran kaldım amacından hayalinden hiç vazgeçmedi aşık olunca hatta adamı bu uğurda kaybetme noktasına gelince bile. ...more

I disliked this book since the beginning because it began with what happened 50 years later and when i read a book I like to read what is happening at the moment and if there is something written for years since now it shouldn't be more than five. So in the begging and in the end of this book I read about 80 years old people and their children and their grandchildren, how am I suppose to like it? It it is nice to see that even after so many years they still love each other but still??? And even ...more

Desde o primeiro volume desta saga que fiquei fã de Daniel Macgregor; apesar de ser um personagem secundário, é o meu preferido, sem dúvida e quando leio um novo livro, estou ansiosa que apareça. Saber que este livro é a sua história e de Anna, há tantos anos atrás, foi uma surpresa, não o sabia. Curiosamente, não foi uma surpresa bem vinda. Não gostei de "andar para trás no tempo" e não gostei do Daniel jovem; o Daniel que eu adoro, é o Daniel pai de 3 adultos, recém-avô, que tudo fez para junt ...more

I am totally enjoying this series and to finally find out about Daniel and Anna's romance was an eye opener. We already knew through reading the previous books in the series that Daniel was bossy and demanding but how does Anna put up with him? By being as strong willed as he is but in a much quieter way when she really feels strongly enough about something there is no way Daniel can move her and in her own quiet way she shows him that a bulldozer isn't always needed, that you can work around th ...more

I really enjoyed reading this story even as a re-read. Daniel remembers what happened when he met Anna, as he is lying in hospital recovering from a serious car crash. It helps us understand how Daniel and Anna got together and how they fought in the beginning. I loved how they struggled to adjust for each other. It was funny reading how Daniel had to adjust his idea of the perfect wife to win Anna. It also gave us a catch up about the couple's from the previous books. Definitely a good story th ...more

Love the Series!

Like with all of Roberts' books, tradition, family and "good stock" play a significant role in the storyline. I had read this book a long time ago and still it thrilled me. Daniel MacGregor, the patriarch of the clan is quiet a character. Although I have all the books on my shelf, I was still enthusiastic enough and bought the ebook. I've grown use to my kindle. This is a happy story with a beautiful ending and a glorious continuity. I highly recommend any MacGregor book! Nora Ro

Daniel MacGregor ...suka sama karakter yang satu ini ^*^. Idealis. Tahu apa yang diinginkan dan bisa memandang jauhhh kedepan. Seakan impiannya terhampar bagai kepingan puzzle yang dia buat sendiri.

Memilih Anna sebagai pasangan hidup. Sejak awal yakin bersama wanita inilah dia akan bahagia For Now, Forever. Dan wanita inilah yang akan dijadikan ratu untuk kerajaan yang akan dibangunnya.

Buku pertama seri MacGregor yang aku punya. And the result is I Love It.

Daniel MacGregor and Anna Wittfield, two of the best characters Nora Roberts has ever created. Between them, they've made some impressive children and grandchildren, thanks to Daniel's scheming. In this look back, we get to see how these two incredible characters, met, fell in love, almost lost each other and then began their life.

You will fall in love with both of them, and thank goodness Roberts continues the tale of the MacGregor clan.

Remarkable

Love this family ..so glad Daniel and Anna's story is done now too. I have read and reread this complete series twice and am on third time. now.Happiness is always in fashion and good for the soul. I have all the books in hardback and they are well-worn from loaning them. I not only recommend them..I give the first of each series as gifts to friends at different times of their lives. Always with a special note to share them.

CONSIDER THIS TITLE FOR A DELIGHTFUL EXPERIENCE.


I chose the rating for this book for the very interesting details the author gave on the two main characters. Both the handsome large male with the ego plus the spirited beautiful lady he chose to spend his life with. The storyline was up and down for them. It keeps your attention through out the book.Thanks, Nora Roberts

Daniel MacGregor has been in a terrible car accident and is in surgery fighting for his life. His wife,
Anna is in the waiting room with their children. Daniel is brought out of surgery and is ICU while they wait the memories of how they met and how they fell in love is on their minds.

This is Daniel and Anna's love story and it is a great one.
Marjo
4.5, which technically should be 5 because I cried, but I have to take out half a star for the arrogant, manipulative "my way is the only way" male lead. I think the reason I did love it so much is that the heroine doesn't give an inch over the course of the entire novel. She knows what she wants, she won't settle for less, and her man has to yield to her.

Esta saga, correndo o risco de me tornar repetitiva, creio que representa bem a escrita da NR, histórias de amor aparentemente sem nada de mais, mas que sem dúvida devido à forma como estão escritas nos prendem do inicio ao fim!

I was looking for this book
Where Self-made millionaire Daniel MacGregor meet medical student Anna Whitfield
The rest of books is about his children and grandchildren
I did not read this book but I read other books in the series but I do not remember which yet.
Bookish Enchantment
This was not the best Nora Roberts book I have read thus the lengthy time it took to get around to finishing it. It was easier to finish though as I needed something pretty predictable and simple to chill out.

If you want simple and predictable then this is a nice choice.

I knew that the story of The MacGregor and Anna would be really interesting and fascinating, but I had no idea how much. I absolutely loved it!!! It's a book that worths reading and with not even one boring page!!!!!
