Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Narrators can make or break a story"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Luke Daniels?

    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.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Very entertaining and fun!"

    I have always loved Nora Roberts so was surprised when I was looking for an audio book for a road trip to find this group of Mackade brothers to be new to me. I was sucked right in from the very first chapter and because I got home before the book finished I had to sit in the garage for a while till I was willing to turn it off . I actually found myself laughing out loud several times during this story and in order to finish the book I drove the long way back home every time I dropped the kids at school or soccer practice. As always, thank you for the delightful Mackade men.

    "Daniels' voice too harsh"

    Luke Daniels' voice is a little too harsh in the reading of this book, and makes Rafe seem too arrogant.

    Story
    "Unstoppable...."

    I can't believe I've not read this series, because I've read all the books written by Nora Roberts and her other alias J.D. Robb. Rafe is as hot as all Nora's heroes are and pig headed. Regan though is the only woman who can handle him. They thought they were just scratching each other's itch, but like all best laid plans, they fell in love. It was fun to listen to and read. Unstoppable. Love it.

    "The Return of Race MacKade"

    The first in the series of stories about the MacKade Brothers. A love story of two people from different places in their lives finding each other.

    "Wonderful!"

    I truly enjoyed this book. The story line of a new love and the hopeless one that did not work out.. It lets you know love can happen at any time AND if love comes with abuse then it really is not love.

    Story
    "It's an early Nota Roberts book."

    It was enjoyable. There wasn't much depth to the story like you expect from her later work. It was a short quick read or should I say listen.

    "Oh, Nora."

    She did it once again. I can't get enough of her love stories and the Mackade brothers really hit home with their strong family bonds, brotherly love and mischief, and the everlasting love stories. Great read.

    "Awful! Can't believe Nora Roberts wrote this."

    The worst Nora Roberts book I have ever read it is hard to write fifteen words when you have nothing good to say.
