Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nora Roberts enchants again with this beloved classic about the passionate and headstrong MacGregor family.

Scotland, 1745. Against the bloody background of the Battle of Culloden, another war was waged and won - the price was honor, the victory, love.

Scottish beauty Serena MacGregor's hatred of all English began as a child when she watched as a band of Englishmen attacked her mother. Her brother's friend, Brigham Langston, was no exception to Serena's loathing - despite his supposed loyalty to the Scottish cause...and his good looks.

Although Brigham eventually proves himself worthy of the MacGregor family's respect, Serena is still reluctant to abandon her hatred for him and his heritage. But Brigham has other plans. Serena has captivated him with her beauty, her passion for life, and commitment to her beliefs - and he refuses to let her antagonistic attitude keep him from winning her. And Serena must learn to open her mind - as Brigham opens his heart - to see the true love awaiting her.

The Power of Love

Love is such a powerful emotion, especially when it's unconditional. Enjoyed the characters and all of the relationships. Rena's evolution was amazing. What a gift you have Ma Roberts!

Superb!

Excellent narration! Beautiful storytelling and well researched history points. Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated in history and defeated in the storyline; it was nice to see that the author didn't take her own storyteller's license here and change history so much to make the story suit her. I enjoyed this a lot! I would definitely read this as this FIRST STORY in the McGregor Saga.

My Favorite Nora Roberts Book

Would you consider the audio edition of Rebellion to be better than the print version?

I loved the print version. The narrator does a fantastic job voicing all of the characters in this audio version. When I read the book, the dialogue sounds more American because that's what I'm used to, so the accents in the book were a treat. And the voice made Brigham a bit more of an English lord to my ears.

What other book might you compare Rebellion to and why?

I usually think of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, but only because it features the battle of Culloden. Nora's book has a lighter touch. It's a shorter book and the people in it are sort of like those from a fairy tale. But they're good people to get to know.

Which scene was your favorite?

There are a lot of scenes that feature the main romantic couple that just make me smile. I found that I smiled quite a bit as I listened. The big scene is the reunion of Brigham and Serena after the battle, but there are a lot of important events that lead up to that moment and they cannot be dismissed for the sake of choosing one favorite scene. It's a great book overall with a bunch of great scenes.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I do not write tag lines. It would take way too much thought. lol

Any additional comments?

I have read this book many times. Love it every time.

My first Macgregor book

I am looking forward to the next book. The narrator spoke in statement like sentences and not as characters would speak. The was good though.

Very unimpressed!

I was waiting for it to pick up but it never did and it could have ended halfway through the book. The female character appeared whishy washy and though portrayed as a headstrong woman, seemed like a moody female...
