Publisher's Summary

Learning that his former Ranger partner Gabe Navarro is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father, buffalo soldier John Cavanagh, is about to lose his land, Holt McKettrick ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. In San Antonio, he meets a lively lady named Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding and burned her bridal gown in the center of town. Thrown out of her father's house, she's hoping to pick up some cattle and start a small ranch of her own. Holt thinks she's out of her mind, but he revises his opinion after watching Lorelei learn to ride a mule named Seesaw, play a cutthroat game of poker, and all in all start to look mighty delectable. Cavanagh's land will be fine and Navarro won't hang - but is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro.

Did not appreciate the change in narrator

The story was good, I love following the story from book to book to book. What I didn’t like was the change in narrator. All of the men sounded like 12 year olds. Just awful.

Really Enjoyed this One!

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to this story. It revolves around a corrupt judges daughter, who leaves homes because of her fathers attitude towards her and how he attempts to manipulate her life. Her male counterpart, abandons his wife to be on the day of his wedding, to go rescue his friend, who has been tried and found guilty of a crime he did not commit, and his foster fathers ranch is in trouble from an unscrupulous neighbor, who is doing everything to drive him out. When Holt and Lorelei meet up fireworks begin. This tightly woven story is atypical, and the ending is predictable, but the journey was very, very interesting. I will be reading more stories about the McKettricks, they seem to be a very interesting family, its just too bad audible doesn't have the first 3 books in their library, so you have to start with this one.
The narrator did an excellent job considering the number of voices and the varied ethnics groups she has to do.

No bad at all

An enjoyable story which gives us an introduction to the McKettrick family of Indian Rock which Miller does a great job with in McKettrick’s Luck, Pride and Heart. Christina Moore, the true name of the narrator, does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. One might find Lorelei Fellows, Holt’s love interest, an exasperating character but then there is no explaining what makes some women think and act the way they do. I also found Holt’s reaction to her antics a little over the top but then there are those A types who do tend to over react. It just seems out of character for the strong cowboy persona generally presented in western genre. If you must have steamy sex, best move on to the other books about this family. If you don’t need that and just like to relax with a good story then you should enjoy this edition of the McKettrick clan.

NARRATOR ...NARRATOR ...NARRATOR

What were they thinking...after having Jack Garrett (who is so wonderful) narrate the first three books, why why why would they have this narrator ruin this 4th book!! First of all, there are very few women narrators who can do justice to a male voice, nevermind a "Cowboy" voice. She uses no accent and her reading is terrible!! I can't say enough about how bad she was. I won't even finish this book and that's a shame because I really enjoyed the first three. Bad Bad Bad!!!

I missed Jake Garrett voice

I missed Jake Garrett as the voices of the McKettrick's. The narrator does a wonderful job for the women, wish they could have voice the book together.

Ugh

The narration is HORRIBLE! Can not make it past the first chapter. Inconsistent tone and inflections. Strong male leads sound like puny teenage boys trying to talk tough...and failing. Female lead sounds like a shrew. So disappointing.

Ugh... This Narrator

The story was good on the first book but I couldn't get past this narrator on this one. Disappointed to find out the first narrator didn't continue the series.

Jack Garrett

My only complaint is it wasn’t read by the man who did the first 3 in the series.

Aweful narrator

I liked the story - curious about what would happen with Holt. I couldn’t get past the poor narration.
