With the young Queen Victoria as a neighbour at Balmoral, Ian MacGregor and his family often played host to English families wishing to spend the summer experiencing 'everything Scottish'. It also didn't hurt that their paying 'guests' brought much needed cash. This year was different. Ian, Earl of Balfour, had determined to marry a very wealthy bride and once and for all put an end to their tenuous finances.

Baron Willard Daniels was equally determined to marry off his eldest daughter, Eugenia, for the highest title he could find. This did not sit well with his daughter, who was determined to marry for love regardless of the bridegroom's social status. Ian's two single brothers and their widowed sister are well equipped to house and entertain the Daniels, but they weren't expecting to have to guard all of their hearts.

I love any story that has a man in a kilt. It just can't do much wrong. All the author has to do is describe him standing proudly in his plaid and I captivated. Fortunately, author Grace Burrowes goes far beyond. The MacGregor family has their share of challenges, the eldest brother long missing in distant Nova Scotia, Canada, famine and crop failure on their farms and have to cater to the whims of their haughty guests.

Eugenia Daniels has seen up close the horrors of her mother's marriage and is determined that this not happen to her. She will not endure a loveless marriage. Her brother Matthew is a disappointment to his father, but is determined to protect his sisters. The two chaperons, widow Julia Redmond and niece Augusta Merrick, are anxious to procure a favourable match for their charge, but also want to enjoy their vacation.

This story was fun from the first pages.

HASH(0xa016396c) out of 5 stars excellent start to a new historical romance series Dec 4 2012
By Heather BookSavvyBabe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Grace Burrowes has become an auto-read author for me. I always enjoy the characters, the setting, and the romance in Grace Burrowes books and I loved the Scottish element in this newest release, The Bridegroom Wore Plaid.

Ian MacGregor is a reluctant Scottish Earl who must marry into money to take care of his family and clan. Ian's older brother disappeared to Canada, leaving him with the title and a clan barely scraping by. Enter Genie Daniels, rich English heiress whose father wants her to marry into a title quickly. Genie is adamantly opposed to an arranged marriage and makes her feelings quite clear. Ian finds an ally in Augusta, Genie's cousin and chaperone. Where there is no chemistry between Genie and Ian, there is an abundance of attraction and connection between Augusta and Ian. Ian is torn between his own emotions and duty, and something about these English visitors is not quite right.

The Bridegroom Wore Plaid is a very enjoyable historical romance. I instantly liked Ian and felt for him. He had obligations to his family and clan and had to put his own desires on the back burner. I did not like Genie at all. She is stubborn, selfish, and placed blame and judgement on Ian when he didn't deserve it. I really liked Augusta though, she had been through hard times in life and become a better person because of it. She understood both sides of the situation and tried to help. Genie's father is up to no good, and it becomes clear that there is more to the situation than meets the eye. Meanwhile, Ian's brothers and sister develop feelings some of the other people in the English party, making for some fun side romances.

With an honor-bound Scottish groom, illicit romances, and hidden secrets, The Bridegroom Wore Plaid is a book historical romance fans will not want to miss.

I fully enjoyed this novel with the colorful characters, the romance, and the Victorian highland setting. The Bridegroom Wore Plaid is the first book in the MacGregor trilogy and I am very excited to continue reading this series in the future. Grace Burrowes sets foundations for future books with the brother's complicated personalities and backgrounds and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next for this family. I recommend this book to historical and Highlander romance readers.

HASH(0xa01639c0) out of 5 stars Prepare To Suspend Belief Dec 8 2012
By BarbaraJean - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Attention: *Plot Spoiler*--I totally agree with "Deadpan Sally" who wrote a review regarding this book. I, too, had to reread many parts because I did not know who was speaking to whom. Also, regarding the "villain" who is a stranger to the area and he finds just the pasture with the bull to cause havoc,then he follows Lord Ian and Augusta on a long hike and finds just the spot to trigger a landslide--ya think? In addition initially Ian thinks the chaperone is dowdy and unattractive then finds himself having lustful thoughts. I didn't quite follow that. Nor did I understand how the book had 4, mind you 4, happily ever afters as, except for Gil and Genie, there is not much to explain how this all came about. As to Ian and his title, recall how it is said he received 3 letters from the new world, two of which he shared and one he did not; then nothing else is said regarding the brother who is presumed dead. Really? Is said brother going to appear in a new book, if so why did Ian go along with declaring him dead after seven years of not hearing from him? Recall how Augusta mentioned a number of times she came from a wealthy family when she was young--this was said a number of times--then at the end of the book when all is returned to her Ian talks about how she and he will be poor, then, ta ta!! Augusta "reveals" how much she owns. I saw that coming about a quarter through the book and Ian must be a bit dense if he did not realize how much wealth there was. After all it was clearly stated that the majority of wealth her uncle had controlled was from Trevisham which Augusta owns!! This book needed a much better editor. Very disappointing.

HASH(0xa0163c9c) out of 5 stars Disappointing Jan. 6 2013
By Sandy Milan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not one of the author's better books, not even close. It reminded me of a gray Winter's day, all bleak and depressing. Whilst the author always writes beautifully and the dialogue between her characters is wonderful, this book failed to inspire. I felt down the whole way through, right until the very, very end.

I know that the H declared his love for the h early on but what truly disappointed me was his failure to fight for her. His own brothers believed that they could survive without him marrying for money but he wasn't will to take the chance.

The other 3 romances in the book were entertaining but it was impossible to develop these subplots in just one book, and as a result I felt a little cheated.

I can't recommend this book.

HASH(0xa0163b94) out of 5 stars In hindsight, I dislike this book. Dec 6 2012
By Deadpan.Sally - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A few months ago, I read the synopsis for this book, and I thought it sounded intriguing. I put it on my wish list and I waited for the day it was published, and I ordered the book.

It just so happened that I was out of the office sick for the day so I stayed in my bed and began reading this anticipated read.

Well, within two chapters, I was disappointed. The book just didn't seem to be edited well; there were passages that left me re-reading them because they lacked coherency. I liked the hero more than I liked the heroine, and every other character (except maybe the dead cat and the young girl) had no redeeming qualities that made them stand out as individuals.

I'm really surprised to learn that this book is part of a series and I will not be reading any more books in this series. Spoilers ahead!!

**** Spoilers****

So the heroine is some spinster cousin to two young heiresses. The father of the heiresses is a wealthy baron who is trying to exchange his wealth for a higher title for his daughter. Well, apparently, the so-called Earl of this story really isn't earl... he's a viscount in name only who could be the earl if his older brother is dead. (I'm a stickler for English titles but I acknowledge that there may be different rules for Scotland, but I believe a younger brother doesn't hold a courtesy title even if he is the heir. He remains Mr. So and So until he assumes the title.) I am assuming that the assumed dead older brother returns from Canada and thus gets his own book in the series.

You wouldn't know this book was part of a series because there are FOUR (4)-- YES! FOUR -- romances in this book. One brother marries one sister, another brother marries the cousin, the sister marries the brother (not her brother), and another brother marries the aunt. About a third of the way into the book, I got so tired of trying to remember which brother was which and who he was supposed to be attracted to, that I just began skipping pages after pages. I probably read only half the book in total. Another annoyance was that the heroine wasn't a virgin, and I happen to like my older shy spinsters to be virgins in my historical romances. But that's my own personal nitpick. If this shy older spinster cousin is supposed to be the chaperon, she's really terrible at it. She ended up sleeping with (dare I say seducing) the man that her cousin is expected to wed; granted, no formal agreement had been made but for most of the book, all of the characters have accepted that this match will take place. So, she's sleeping with the guy and thinking - gee, I really should feel sorry for my cousin.

Now, if you weren't impressed by the FOUR romances, you may be impressed by the fact there is also a murder plot involved. Oh, and Prince Albert makes an appearance as the bumbling and affable neighbor who sets the record straight on who is really the heiress in the picture.

HASH(0xa0163d80) out of 5 stars Couldn't grab my attention. Dec 13 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although the ending was sweet,this book could not keep my attention for very long. I would start to read it and I would find the need to distract myself with something more interesting. It seemed to move so very.very slowly.
I could not find the characters very sympathetic either.
I wanted desperately to finish it just so that I could finally be done with it!

The book is about two families, the MacGregors (a Scottish clan, as the name reveals) and the Daniels (who are English). The MacGregor family is made up of an older brother and heir who has become lost in the wilds of Canada, Ian who is now Balfour, his younger brothers Gil and Con and their widowed sister Mary Fran and her young daughter Fiona. The Daniels are the Baron Daniels (abusive father and manipulator extraordinaire), his eldest daughter Genie, who is promised to marry Ian,her sister Hester (who is practically non-existent in the book),their brother Michael, their widowed aunt Julia Redmond,and their cousin Augusta Merrick.
Genie,having seen the marriage and relationship that exists between her mother and her father, does not want to marry without love, and Ian having met her, can't imagine marrying such a cold fish.
As the story unfolds,we find Gil falling for Genie,Con falling for the widow Julia and Mary Fran falling for yet another English-man in falling for Michael.
Ian, although not interested at first in Augusta, slowly finds himself drawn to her and she to him, but he needs to marry a fortune to be able to care for all of the people who depend on him (and she supposedly doesn't have one).
In the book, although Augusta is supposedly a very intelligent young woman, she manages to spend years of her life at her uncle's mercy, since he has managed to convince her that all the wealth her family had was nothing but an illusion. She lives out most of her days in Oxfordshire scrimping and saving to survive or as a companion to her cousins while her uncle benefits from her fortune.

I think it's safe to say I was terribly disappointed by this book. I found it both a waste of my time and money!
I hope my next purchase, whatever it may be, is more to my liking.
