Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nora Roberts enchants again with this beloved classic about the passionate and headstrong MacGregor family.

Attorney Caine MacGregor had a reputation for being a demon in and out of the courtroom. The dashing young attorney rarely met a case - or a woman - he couldn't win. But Diana Blade was no ordinary lady. Caine yearned to break down her icy wall of control and release the passionate woman within. He might be able to convince Diana to form a business partnership, but could he entice her to risk everything for the love of a MacGregor?

Did not hold my interest

The narration was poor. The male voices was not done well. I will not read the other sequel if done by same narrator.

Annoyed and Distracted

I enjoyed the book but kept feeling distracted by the narrator having a lisp!
I understand that it is a speech impediment but it was heard in EVERY character and it annoyed me throughout the whole book..

Another Good Read

This was a good romance, light, and easy to read. The Macgregors are always interesting. Not too crazy about the lady who read the book. She was easy to understand but there is a certain cadence to her voice that sounds somewhat arrogant.Could be the section of the country she is from and the "accent". It didn't keep me from listening to the book.

MacGregors 2, world of women 0

Well, a background-noise sort of book this is. You can listen to it while doing other things and not really miss anything. I like Nora Roberts best in stand-alone books, I realize that now. With an introduction to some of the characters, the background set-up in a previous book, this book was too predictable for me.
It did serve the purpose of having something to listen to that was easy romance and did not include zombies or slashers or intrigue, if that helps.

Caine and Diana

What did you love best about Tempting Fate?

The ongoing characters in the family MacGregor

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tempting Fate?

Being snowed in and stuck in a hotel that typically rents rooms by the hour

Did Angela Dawe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. She lowered her voice for the male characters, added a brogue for Daniel. She softened her voice for Anna and raised it for Rena.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. Nice simple romance.

Any additional comments?

This series holds up 30 yrs after first publication. The characters smoking cigarettes dates the series but other than that it could be written today.

Awful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This narrator is truly absolutely horrible. I cannot believe audible has not taken the time to listen to her. Unbelievable.

What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Different narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Painful to listen to her. Absolutely awful.

MacGregors at their best.

Great story line. Fun reading. MacGregor clan thinking fate is with them, when it is really daddy.

Good book

I enjoyed the the continuing story of the McGregors. However, it was detrimental to the enjoyment listening to the actor sounding like a cartoon character when reading the part of Caine. I will think twice before purchasing a book with Angela Dawe.
