One of the guilty pleasures of a person who holds an English Literature degree is reading romances. Yes, by and large, most female English B.A. holders have read or are reading a romance and I am no different.
I like Norah Roberts for my romance fix because her males are males, not sensitive metromales of the last decade. One of the main reasons I quit reading a romance is if the writer doesn't know her men. Okay, I don't pretend to know what it is like to be a man with a males physiology, but I have worked in male dominated workplaces (electronics) and I have talked to quite a few. In many cases, I shrug helplessly when some male friend asks me why women act the way they do. It is quite a mystery to me too.
In this story Daniel MacGregor, the patriarch of the MacGregors, has decided that his grandsons need wives. And of course, Daniel wants grandchildren. The grandsons, D.C., Duncan, and Ian are very wary of their grandfather's plans. They enjoy the lifestyle of single males and don't want to "settle down." The stories are interesting and funny.
As I said before, this novel "The MacGregor Grooms" have men who act, talk, and react like men. I enjoy it. I don't feel gypped... when I need a little light enjoyable reading. And maybe, even though I protest I am not, maybe I am a little bit of a romantic.
