New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts returns with the classic tales of the MacKade brothers - their rebellions, their passions, and their loves.
Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has come home. Cleaned up and successful now - though still dangerously good-looking - Rafe MacKade sets the town on fire…and tongues wagging. Not even lovely newcomer Regan Bishop is immune to his charms. Though Regan claims to not want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe's pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise.

I have several audios by Nora Roberts, but I won't listen to anything else by Luke Daniels again, unless it's a gumshoe mystery or a western.
His voice for Rafe sounded like Clint Eastwood, it just did not work for the story. I have this book in Kindle form and enjoy it. I can't listen to this guy with a straight face, his narration ruins the story.
Don't let the audio steer you away from the print version of this series. The books are fun, but this narrator is the wrong choice for these books.
Reagan. She stood up to the overly Macho men.
Ed. He did Ed really well. I kind of wish there had been more scenes with her.
no extreme reactions.
If I wanted to hear John Wayne the entire time...I would watch a western. I really like Nora Roberts stories but I have realized after being a member for only a short time, that the performance could really kill the story, I just think the voice is really annoying. I will be sure to read the reviews on the performance the next time I purchase a book.
I would listen to this book again if read by a different narrator. I feel that the tone the narrator used for Rafe's voice gave the character a smarmy and rude vibe. Apparently, this has given other readers cause to call Rafe mean and nasty; I don't think the author intended this to be the case.
I would like to continue the MacKade series; I love the story but hesitate because of Luke Daniels' overly done "voices".

I enjoyed the narrator's characters and his voice was different than the usual narrators you hear.
The ending was good. Sort of funny.
Rafe as a character was annoying and lovable at the same time.
It is just a typical romance novel. No extreme reactions.
Enjoyable book. Can't wait to read the next one!
Typical Nora Roberts Story. Like the Brother concept. Did to like the rough voice for violence.
Nora never lets the wedding happen or carries it beyond that..not sure why.
Not yet..Need to finish the story. The first book did not develop the ghost enough.
I have listened to most of her books on Audible. I felt this one is less for her.
Love audio books. Hate bad narrators.
Someone used to mean, nasty and verbally abusive men.
I haven't decided. I might do one more from the series but if the Jared is as mean as Rafe, I'm moving on.
I didn't dislike the narrator. I didn't particularly care for the voice of Rafe and his brother, Devin the Sheriff.
Just about all the scenes which included Rafe.
I couldn't stand Rafe. I found him to be very mean and bitter towards life in general and the story gave no real reason why he was that way. I found him to be almost as bad as the wife beater in the story; the only difference is Rafe used words, not fists. I pretty much found him repulsive. He is like this literally until the last five minutes of the book. I did however like the "ghost" parts but then again, there was no real conclusion to this either.
The story was good, I couldn't get past the voice.
No, his version of a woman's voice is just strange.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, going to listen to all four brothers stories. Some of my favorite books are Nora Roberts books. Witness, Montana Skies, The Search.
Luke Daniels does a decent job narrating, he is reliable, so I have listened to many books he has narrated.
Laughed out loud several times, and altho the story was somewhat predictable.... I enjoyed listening and downloaded the other MacKade books.
