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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "Loved the story but the reader? Not so much"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Nora could write a grocery list and I'd read it and love it! She is a master storyteller and doesn't resort to unnecessary crass terminology to get romantic and beautiful scenes across.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Rafe and listening to the change in him as he falls for Reegan!


    What didn’t you like about Luke Daniels’s performance?

    When he is in character, specifically Rafe, he's great. But his voice characterization for Devin is grating and the voice characterizations for Shane and Jared just don't match up with Nora''s description of the characters. These men are self assured, sexy, and charismatic. The voice characterizations of Devin, Shane, and Jared are annoying, grating, and essentially whiny, high pitched, and difficult to listen to. Rafe's smoky, deep, breathy, and sexy voice kept me listening.


    Was The Return of Rafe MacKade worth the listening time?

    The story? Absolutely!!! But again, sometimes it was very difficult to listen to Mr. Daniels' voice.
