    Ahhhhh, Nora Roberts. You can always count on her to deliver a great book. The MacKade Brothers: Rafe and Jared is no exception. This book, as you probably guessed from the title, is sort of like 2 books in one. Sure, they would have been 2 short books, but books nonetheless.

The MacKade Brothers: Rafe and Jared is no exception. This book, as you probably guessed from the title, is sort of like 2 books in one. Sure, they would have been 2 short books, but books nonetheless. The MacKade Brothers are a family in Antietam (Maryland?). They are a rough and tumble group and have been troublemakers their whole lives! But they love each other more than anything and that bond is showcased throughout these 2 novels/4 stories. Rafe is the angry one. The REALLY angry one. He buys the "Old Barlowe Place" which has called to him for years. Its haunted and he loves it. He's come back to Antietam, after blowing town years ago, to make his mark on the town he calls home. He's done well for himself in the meantime with his own contracting/construction business, simply called MacKade. He plans to turn the Barlowe place into a Bed and Breakfast and meets Regan, a local business owner who specializes in antiques. She's just what Rafe needs, in more ways than one!! Jared is the oldest and has become a lawyer. A great one. His cold, loveless marriage has ended and he's coming back to Antietam to figure out what he wants to do. He has one more quick errand before going home: He has to do a favor for a colleague out west. He has to stop by this house and drop off paperwork regarding a small estate. He didn't expect to find sassy redhead, Savannah Morningstar. He certainly didn't expect to fall for her or for her kid, but that's just what happens! I really enjoyed this book. I think I read it a long time ago and then again, just now. It must have been one of my first Nora Roberts books. What can I say about it? I mean, its Nora Roberts! Its just great. The lady knows how to write hot sex scenes and sexy sexy guys! My only complaint about this book is this: Now that I've the read the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy (well, the first 2 anyways), the MacKade books seem like the original and the Inn BoonsBoro books seem like a re-tread. Men finding love on a construction site, spousal abuse, escaping spousal abuse, haunted houses that are being turned into Bed and Breakfasts. It all seems familiar. And in my opinion, the MacKade brothers do it better!

    As this is a book with two stories, I'll write my thoughts of each of them separately. The Return of Rafe MacKade (5 stars) LOVED IT!! We get introduced to the bad and swoon-worthy MacKade brothers with the focus on Rafe. Of course it's Nora Roberts' speciality to make us fall in love with her heroes and to give them their perfect match. She didn't fail. Rafe is the most alpha of her heroes I've read yet but I looooved him! And I looooved Regan.

Rafe is the most alpha of her heroes I've read yet but I looooved him! And I looooved Regan. She was pig-headed and strong and courageous and sweet, and her and Rafe's chemistry throughout the pages was sizzling. And what's more romantic than people accepting each other for who they are? The Pride of Jared MacKade (3 stars) It took me more time to get into this story. Jared was awesome but Savannah was harder for me to like. I felt her moods swings irritating although I admired what she did for her son. The love story between Jared and Savannah took me longer to fall for and I felt their 'I love you' too soon considering that both of them, especially Savannah, had trust issues. I thought of giving it less stars but the appearance of the other MacKades and getting to know what was going on in Rafe and Regan's relationship were a win for me. *** I'm really liking this series so far. I've missed reading romance books and Nora Roberts' MacKades were the perfect way of going back to the genre. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. (And dreading the time when I'll have to tell them goodbye)

    I've been reading this quartet for years. They were my first NR books, and I'd read them one after another on my Nook, often through the night, in high school. Sometimes I even finished the fourth and turned around and immediately reread them. Last year I decided I needed to own hardcopies. If you know anything about me, it's that brothers are one of my ultimate weaknesses. Oftentimes, the brother characters in books are my favorite characters.

This series is four books of pure character-driven brother goodness. To discuss these first two themselves, Rafe makes a wonderful introduction to the quartet. He's perfect for the setting he comes back to, and is the perfect definition of what a "bad boy" should be. Of the four women, Regan was one I liked more immediately, and the appreciation has only grown with each read. Jared, I have to admit, on the other hand is probably #4 on my ranking scale. For some reason I never connected to him as well as the other three, and the same goes for Savannah - I just didn't connect with her as much as the others. However what I do like is getting continued glimpses of the others throughout each book. The other thing I like about this series is that the plot elements are continually present throughout the series. What surfaces in Book 1 will die down a bit in Book 2, but becomes the central issue in Book 3. The continuity in this series is fantastic. Overall, I'll say again, this is one of my favorite book series. I don't think I've ever seen it around as much as NR's other books, and that makes me kind of secretly glad ;)

    Overall rating - 4 Stars There are two books in this series, each containing 2 stories about the MacKade brothers.

Don't get me wrong you still get a great romance between two wonderful characters but personally I think all the intro's stole the lime light a bit. Jared & Savannah's story...5 Stars Since the backdrop/plot was distinguished in the first story this one flowed a whole lot smoother. Jared and Savannah's chemistry smacks you in the face and you find yourself just hoping the next page is where they both quit fighting the inevitable. Robert's (as always) does a superb job at bringing these new friends to life, and by the end you're oh so glad you still have two more stories to read of the MacKades.

Introduction to the MacKades - and some definition of the characteristics - Rafe is the bad boy, seems they all were, however because he left he's still got the aura; Jared is the oldest and has become the respected lawyer, Devin seems to be the quiet one who became sheriff, while Shane comes across as the happy go lucky baby brother I liked everything about this story, both Rafe and Regan were strong, likable characters who weren't afraid to speak to the other and met each other halfway when there were difficulties. It was interesting to see their professions bringing them together (he renovates and restores old homes and she decorates them) and showing all they had in common. There was a serious note with the introduction of Cassie who had suffered domestic violence and who finally took her life into her hands. This one merits 4 stars The Pride of Jared MacKade The oldest brother who is now a successful lawyer and after a divorce returns to live at the farm. He is paired with Savannah Morningstar who has bought the land bordering both the Mackade land and the Barlow property and lives in a cabin with her 9 yr old son Bryan. Jared contacts her as a favor for a fellow lawyer because Savannah's father has passed away and left her some money. Savannah doesn't react well to this news because she was estranged from her father. She fell pregnant at 16 and her father kicked her out, she made a life for herself and her son alone and never forgave her father. The attraction between Jared and Savannah is immediate and they get together realtively early in the story. Savannah is best described as prickly, which I thought given her history was understandable, and I thought her personality suited the strong, hardworking and independent person that she was. The conflict arose because Jared constantly wanted more information of her past and seemed to believe he was entitled to it. At one point after finding out how broke she was in the early years he actually has the gall, cheek and nerve to ask her if she ever turned to prostitution. I couldn't believe I'd actually read that and while I was mad on her behalf it was heartbreaking that she realized she actually loved him enough to get beyond that ugly question. For all this Savannah is the opposite of the shrinking violet and the scene near the end where Jared believes she's come to the farm to apologise and she shows him just how that's not going to happen was pure gold. Yet again the focus on family with the Mackades and their easy inclusion of Savanah, Bryan, Cassie, Connor and Emma in their "family" was lovely

    I think this mini series may be my favorite Nora Roberts so far. First of all, i absolutly loved how between the romance, she intertwined history in there, as i am a history buff. I loved the town of Antietam, Maryland, i live in a small town and i've always wanted to get out, but maybe i jst dont like this small town, because Antietam sounds so picturesque and relaxing, with a true community. Now I loved the MAcKade good looks, the whole bad bay persona with the dark hair and gree eyes. Rafe wa I think this mini series may be my favorite Nora Roberts so far.

Now I loved the MAcKade good looks, the whole bad bay persona with the dark hair and gree eyes. Rafe was amazing, he's so headstrong and stubborn, and Regan knows what she wants and is so stable and secure in herself, which i adored. I loved Regan's antique shop and how the fact that Rafe and her were renovating the Barlow house together, made their relationship that more solid. I loved how Regan was trying so hard to be smart and rational, but when Rafe asked her to stay, she ran to him. I love that their first time together was at the house, because it's such a huge part of their story. I loved the bet, and how that was the way that Rafe ended up proposing, even though you could totally see it coming. I love that he had the flowers and the poem memorized already, waiting, even though he was trying not to think about marrying her. Now Jared and Savannah's story i again adored because they fully embodied the whole opposites attract idea. I love that Jared was married before, with a cold hearted woman, and it just shows you that sometimes what you think you should be wanting, isn't true at all. I love how Savannah was the complete opposite of Jared's university-successful persona, she didn't even finish high school, pregnant at 16, and worked her ass off to raise her son properly. I loved her strong sense of self, her take no bull attitude. I love Jared realizes that he's so angry at the whole situation because he wants to protect that lost teenage mother who had no one. He wants her and Bryan so bad, he sometimes fights it. I loved that their first time was in the woods because just like the house was Rafe and Regan's, the woods and the emotions and peace in the woods is Jared and Savannah's. I love how Savannah and Regan redecorating Jared's office symbolized what Savannah brought to Jared, happiness and life. I love how Jared included Bryan in proposing to Savannah. Nora Roberts is fantastic at capturing a reader and teaching them, and taking them through a journey.

    This is Book #1 of the Mackade brothers. Book #2 is with Devin and Shane. There are two short stories in this slightly oversized book by Nora Roberts. I didn't care for the characters in Rafe's story, but Jared and Morningstar's story was neat. She reminded me of Cher. This is Book #1 of the Mackade brothers. Book #2 is with Devin and Shane.

    This one was hard to put down. I’ve been stuck on Nora Roberts’ series since I read the Bride Quartet and this one did not disappoint. I was looking for a small town romance after I read the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy and this was the perfect fit! Rafe and Regan’s story was just the best way to kick off this series, they had passion and a major connection as well as layered characters that suited each other perfectly.

Theirs might be my favourite story but don’t hold me to it as I’m prone to changing my mind often. Regan’s strong character was the perfect match to Rafe’s fiery one. The inn that they’re building together allows them to build a strong and loving connection that jumps off the pages and stomps right on my single heart - in a good way. Jared and Savannah’s story was one I really enjoyed because of how different they are to each other but also because of how similar they are to each other. They just fit perfectly together as a family - the way he connects with Bryan is adorable. Savannah’s ballsy and secretive and stubborn, while Jared is calm but is also stubborn and has the Mackades’ quick temper. You’d think they’d be toxic but they both find calm and love and connection in the woods that speak to both of them.

    I enjoy almost all work by Nora Roberts and this one was great! I love Rafe and Reagan, she put him in his place without fear! And Rafe just melted my heart in the end! The ending was satisfying, they both realised that love also included compromise and adjustment and acceptance too. Special mention to the fantastically funny one-liners and conversations between Rafe and his three brothers, more than once I laughed aloud!

    Two books about the older MacKade brothers they share a family tightness and edgy loyalty. they also share deadly good looks. Rafe has been gone since his parents died looking for a way to prove himself He meets the lovely fragile antique dealer and Sparks fly. but Regan holds up her own independence and they find a compromise in their work. The second story is the lawyer and the wayward neighbor. both are fiercely independent. till the let her son see how important family can be.

    I got too frustrated with Regan. She was so dang uptight and wouldn't get straight to the point about anything. Rafes the kind of guy that you need to be up front with and she kept hedging. I couldn't figure out why. She didn't want just sex yet didn't want a relationship but was attracted to him and kept letting him kiss her. You're in your 30s ffs get over it and grow up. She was sometimes a pouty child and partly an old lady. 🙄 I got too frustrated with Regan. She was so dang uptight and wouldn't get straight to the point about anything.

    The MacKade brothers are you basic country brothers (the boys you mama warned you about). They are fun loving and and would do anything for each other! It is a pure joy to read the stories of how Rafe and Jared lose their hearts to the women that are completely opposite of what they ever dreamed of,

    Early Nora Roberts tells the story of 4 brothers in Antietam, Maryland. The fun of her books is always her characters and how they interact in their environment. I loved the small town, I loved the history of the boys and I loved how they fit into their community. Of course, there was romance and heart and confusion. Very nice.

    The Return of Rafe McCade. This was a fun story with 2 very good characters in it. Really enjoyed it. The Pride of Jared McCade. I liked Jared in the previous book but did not enjoy his relationship with Savannah, he seemed very different in this book. I wasn't a fan of Savannah at all but her kid Bryan was great.

    DNF after 3 chapters. This is the first NR book I’ve tried to read and was not a fan. I like my romance novels to be fun yet sexy. This was too brooding and serious. I didn’t like the ghost/haunted house civil war stuff and Rafe was not appealing at all....the stereotypical arrogant bad boy with no personality. No thanks.
