Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts returns with the classic tales of the MacKade brothers - their rebellions, their passions, and their loves.

Shane MacKade enjoyed everything about women - the look of them, the smell of them, the taste of them. So the last thing he expected was to become a one-woman man. And even more surprising is that it's the Ph.D.-toting academic Rebecca McKnight who has him headed for a fall. Could Shane's days as a bachelor be coming to an end?

Not the best

I have enjoyed all the Mackade Brothers books and Luke Daniels narration except for the female lead in this one. She sound infantile. When he read Rebecca I was cringing as I listened. Love those sexy brothers though.

The narrator was too much!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The story was good,as most of Nora Roberts are.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Shane himself. As with all the MacKade brothers...yummmm

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

Luke Daniels has a wonderful voice,but honestly he should never attempt women or children voices! Almost didn't get through the series because of him. Rebecca's voice was the absolute most ridiculous. For being a genius, and for being someone that might interest the suave Shane..she sounded like a little baby! It was difficult to get by.

Falling Can Be Good for You

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, it is a charming story well-performed with a nice romance and a bit of supernatural mystery.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked the opposites attract relationship between Shane and Rebecca.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator has a nice voice with a good, fluid style and subtle but unmistakable differentiations between characters.

Do you think The Fall of Shane MacKade needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, it stands on its own. However it is part of the Brothers MacKade series so there are more chances to read about the characters of this novel.

Oh no, the series ended; I am sad!

Way to go Nora. This book was one of frustration with Shane and Rebecca but as usual a happy ending. Was glad that the ghosts we're finally settled. Peace be with all of those lives lost in that nasty war.

THE BEST OF THE FOUR!

I've purchased and listen to all 4 books in this series. I've been a Nora Roberts fan for many years. This is the first time that I can truthfully say that I recommend reading vs listening to these books. In each book, the MacKade boys ALL scream at each other and at their love interests. Therefore, when Luke Daniels screams or yells, it totally turns me off. I just think reading would have a little less negative impact. As for Luke Daniels narrative talent, I'm not sure what he would be like in a different setting. So far, he's not my favorite.

The story line on all four were just ok. Now that I'm finished with the series, I'm going back to something with more depth to the story.

Luke Daniels' s voice

When Luke narrates a book each character has its own sound and he has stayed consistent in each of the four books about the MacKade brothers stories I loved it.

#4 in the Series

This series was first published in 1996, so some of it seems dated, but not enough to ruin the book. The stories are of the 4 brothers MacKade who each fall in love, have a complication that is worked through and resolve to a happy ending. They are sweet, not sexually explicit and with enough drama to hold interest.

The narrator did not do well with the female character in this book - other books were actually better with female narration - maybe he felt he had run out of female voices, His voice portrayal of her made her seem like a 15 year old. But, all in all, I enjoyed the 4 books. I do enjoy Nora Roberts and binge on a series of hers, like this one, now and then.
