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.

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.

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.

Not quite a romance

Good book, but falls short in the romance department. It seemed the story was rushed and could have been stretched out a bit, or needed more detail, to make a better quality of story. Narrorator was fine, but the lead female character was irritating. Found myself rolling my eyes almost everytime she spoke.

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!!!

change of narrator

I listened to this book because I was already 3 books into series. I didn't care for narrator change. You get use to listening to the characters voices already established. And Emmeline was pronounced differently.

Change in narrator

Why would they switch the narrator at book 4. Great book but I guess I’m super picky because I would much rather have the same guy narrate them all. Or at least switch to a similar voice.

reader ruins the book

I couldn't even get past chapter 1 with the new reader. in glad I read the saga first so i couldn't turn my back on the author.
