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.
Love, marriage, babies, and a lifetime to share: that's what Brad wants. Not a single night of pasion, an unexpected pregnancy, and a woman who won't budge. For a rugged rodeo cowboy who never gives up, it's a battle of wills he intends to win...and nothing matters more than claiming Meg's wild McKettrick heart.

Loving animals as I do I wanted to delve into this story as soon as possible. Animals are given pivotal roles and how they impact the decisions and lives of the characters in the story is woven seamlessly through the book. I enjoyed the different family members, with their varying "gifts" and how those gifts worked to further the story line and interactions of the characters was well done. I would have given four stars to this review, however, the narrator sounded lackluster and the "listening" of her narration seemed to move in slow motion. I was able to amp up the speed of narration and that seemed to help a bit.
Not having to have a light on to read.
This was the first audiobook I've ever listened to.
I love Linda Miller stories becausethey are base on love and family. I only thing that kept me from enjoying this story is the narrator, she is talking to slow and whipsering. The only character that you can understand is Megan. My favorite is McKettrick Heart. I give this book a 3 because i just like Linda Miller.
Yes because it answered questions from books that followed
Since Brad plays such a prominent role in his sister's books I expected his own story to be even more superior to the others. Unfortunately, I just didn't think it was up to par.
This was the first I have heard, but hope it will not be the last.
I love the family characters, the way they stick together, stand strong for themselves and for each other.
I picked one of Linda Lael Miller's books by pure accident and am so glad I did. She has become one of my favorite authors. Her characters are strong but realistic. You can see the scenery, the houses, rooms and situations. Her plots and story lines are great and yiu fall in love with her humor. I REALLY like that while her books are love stories, I don't have to skip pages and pages of pure sex. She doesn't get down and dirty, she doesn't get so descriptive that the scene is ruined. Thank you for that.
This story is a quick read that features Meg McKettrick and her 12 year old son, as well as Brad O’Bullivan, a former singer who now runs a ranch. Meg was Brad's former girlfriend whose heart was broken when he left her for a singing career. A very unique story with supernatural elements all rolled into a contemporary western romance.
Just traveling through
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.
