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.

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.
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.
From a family of four handsome, sexy, charismatic Alpha brothers bad boy Rafe is back in his hometown after 10 years absence during which time he made a successful house restoration business. But there was one house that's haunted him over the years, a grand, derelict and haunted house on the edge of town and he's just bought it with visions of restoring it to it's former historical glory and making it into a B & B. However, he needs the help of Regan's Antique Business, her knowledge and natural flair to make his vision come to life but the strong willed, independent, talented beauty, together with their mutual attraction, soon captures his imagination along with his heart too.
A very sweet contemporary romance with a sad and tragic Civil War ghost story running through it and there's a bit of angst, an abused wife with 2 shy children and her aggressive husband sub plot and a love story that was funny, light with witty banter and sensual but mild sex scenes. As with all Nora Robert's books, you're guaranteed richly described vivid scenes and loveable characters that soon draw you into their lives as you witness their hopes, dreams and desires slowly being fulfilled. You really feel the dynamics and love between all the brothers which enriches this listen.
Worth a credit? It was a very enjoyable, entertaining light listen that was short, sweet and cost under $5, so at that price there was no need to use a credit.
I enjoyed getting to know the MacKade brothers, their ghosts and the battle of Antietam. I am somewhat of a history buff and knew nothing about this northern most battle. The brothers' stories which incorporate the battle make me want to take a vacation.
Rafe's story was great as was Regan's "intrusion" into it. Now that we've met the brothers, can't wait to hear how their lives are changed by a "good woman".
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.
The story was good, I couldn't get past the voice.
No, his version of a woman's voice is just strange.
