    Learning that his former partner Gabe Navarro is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father John Cavanagh is about to lose his land, Holt McKettrick ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. There, he meets Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding. Is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro.

    Story

    An enjoyable story which gives us an introduction to the McKettrick family of Indian Rock which Miller does a great job with in McKettrick’s Luck, Pride and Heart. Christina Moore, the true name of the narrator, does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. One might find Lorelei Fellows, Holt’s love interest, an exasperating character but then there is no explaining what makes some women think and act the way they do. I also found Holt’s reaction to her antics a little over the top but then there are those A types who do tend to over react. It just seems out of character for the strong cowboy persona generally presented in western genre. If you must have steamy sex, best move on to the other books about this family. If you don’t need that and just like to relax with a good story then you should enjoy this edition of the McKettrick clan.

    Meg McKettrick longs for a baby...husband optional. Perfect father material is gorgeous Brad O'Ballivan, old flame and new owner of his family's ranch in Stone Creek. But Meg, as strong, proud, and stubborn as her ancestors on Indian Rock's Triple M ranch, wants to do things her way: the McKettrick way. And Brad feels just as strongly about the O'Ballivan way.

    Story

    I knew from the reviews that the narrator was a disappointment to other readers so I wasn't surprised to find that to be the case. The reasons I chose to go ahead with this title was to find out what had happen to this last member of the McKettrick clan in Arizona. It seems to me that Ms Miller used the story of Meg to bridge the saga into the Creed family. I felt it was a poorly built bridge and the narrator made the whole thing seem that much more silly. The story ends with a Creed knocking on the door. I can only wonder if Ms Miller was more interested in moving her readers into a new series than she was in really developing the characters of Meg and her new found father and sister. I have truly enjoyed getting to know the McKettrick's of Arizona but I feel Ms. Miller missed with Meg.

    If there is one redeeming quality to mention about this title it would be coming to understand the importance of a good narrator to the overall quality and enjoyment of an audio book.
