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.

    "entertaining"

    I love the series, and although I could never be able to do different vocals for audio books, I feel that there wasn't enough of a difference between the brothers. i also feel some of the women voices sounded a bit like Valley Girls.

    Story
    "The 1997 is showing."

    I never realized how misogynistic this story was until I heard the story outloud. Rafe is very verbally abusive. The narrator was decent but the way he narrated the voice of Rafe accentuates the sickness of the main character. A lot of victim blaming in this story.

    "CAN'T SAY GREAT!!"

    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.

    "Remarkably Romanic"

    I love how Nora can take a strong male character that is ruff around the edges and mold him romantically while still allowing him to keep his manly charm. By the time the book was over I wanted Rafe! Enjoyable to say the least.

    "Nice chilled out read."
    Would you listen to The Return of Rafe MacKade again? Why?

    After loving Nora Robets Inn Boomsbury series, I decided to try this set, and I've just downloaded the second book. As I did wnjoy it, It was a bit short really and very predictable but a good chill out read, with great characters, all the brothers, read it in a day and liked the brothers wanted to know what happened to all the brothers so will read the series. Enjoyable if you want a easy read.

    "Great story,"

    A classic Nora Roberts book. Part of a series, so it is good to hear how the family is developing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rafe MaKade

    The one in the woods between Rafe and the 9 year old Brian in which Rafe tells Brian he wants to marry his mum and make him his son.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I might, but I listen in the car to and from work and I have no long trips planned
