The MacKade Brothers: Devin and Shane (The MacKade Brothers #3-4)
Sheriff Devin MacKade watched -- patiently, painfully -- as the woman he secretly cherished suffered through a less-than-perfect marriage. Now pretty Cassie Connor was free . . .but vulnerable. Devin knew he'...more
This is the second book of the MacKade brothers stories. I strongly recommend you read Rafe and Jared's story first because it's a continuing story.
"Bad boys, bad boys, what'cha gonna do, what'cha gonna do when they come for you.....LoL, I couldn't resist!
Devin & Cassie's story...5 Stars
Devin has loved Cassie from afar most of his life, but when she got married right after high school he lost his chance with her. Cassie was abused throughout her marriage and after 10 ...more

FYI it was my FIRST book ever ordering online rather then buying at a thrift store.. but after RAFE and JARED's story i was dying to find out what happened to the other 2--- I WISH she would consider finishing the series with a book about the kids or something.. the love in that family is stuff dreams are made of...
Any book that lets you dream is amazing!!! -
Love to rea ...more
Shane MacKade, the youngest of the brothers lives in the famly farmhouse and goes about his life on the farm he loves. He's different from t ...more
Devin's story was one I was looking the most forward too because I knew it would be about him and Cassie Dolen. Cassie had finally freed herself from s terrible abusive marriage of 10 years and had moved on with her life. She and her two children had moved into the MacKade in as manager and she was finally starting to have pride in her self. Devin had loved Cassie for over 12 years and now ...more
The storyline is easy to follow and kept me involved until the end. One of the few series that I wanted to read in order and not skip to the ending to read it first.
Devin is a great law enforcer and was sensitive enough to know to take things slowly with Cassie. And even though it hurt, he ...more
The final story tells the tale of Shane and Rebecca. Shane farms the land and loves his women. Rebecca is a PhD and old friend of Regan's. When Rebe ...more
There is a continuing story about the family and town being haunted but I largely skipped that as I enjoyed the real life part of the story the best. Overall I re ...more
This was the sweetest romance of the four stories, it was emotional too and I loved it. This one along with The Return of Rafe MacKade are my favorites from the series.
The romance wasn't slow or fast, it was just right.
The Fall of Shane MacKade (5 stars)
Man, did Shane fall in this book, hahah. The beginning was slow for my taste and the heroine didn't interest me at first but then it all got better and I found myself falling in love with Shane and Rebecc ...more
If you've been reading the series this is the one you were waiting for - if for no other reason than simply the investment in the characters. From Rafe's book we've met Cassie and seen her grow from downtrodden beat up wife to the stronger Cassie who runs the b&b, while Devin pines from afar - biding his time. He's the quieter brother who is now the sheriff and I imagine it cannot have been easy knowing that Cassie was being beaten by her husband and being unable to ...more
I wasn't going to read the stories of Devin and Shane yesterday. I had read an article by Sarah of Smart Bitches mentioning Devin's story and I couldn't remember it, so I went to the Nora collection to see first, if I had the book and secondly, had I read it. (If not I was going to buy it on sale for the ereader.) Well, I owned the book - the volume with Shane's story - and I'd not ...more
The Heart of Devin MacKade was a sweet story, with him pining for Cassandra for so long. I get a little bit edgy with Nora Roberts' evil characters, but all in all it was a great story, with Cassandra being in tune with Abigail's ghost and making decisions based upon the past.
The Fall of Shane MacKade was a cute title, but perhaps one of the more unrealistic of the pairings with Shane, a ladies' man, and Rebecca, a girl genius. I'm not sure how much I believe that ...more
DEVIN - 4 stelle
La storia di Devin era quella che più mi ispirava fin dall'inizio. Devin è innamorato della dolce Cassie da ben 12 anni, ma da ragazzo ha esitato troppo a lungo prima di dichiararsi così lei, appena diciottenne, aveva sposato Joe per sfuggire al ...more
In the place where blood is spilled, life is lost, love is forgotten, hope is non-existent, what would happen in future?
Land endures, Man moves on and the dark shadows of death, pain and misery should be replaced with love, life and hope.
The four books in this series takes us through this journey.
I'm frustrated since I can't seem to pick out a favorite
I always had a thing for stories that have family/ brother/sister(hood)s -ish type of characters. There's this bond that connects them, and eventually, you're connected to that link they have established. What I love about Nora Roberts is that she always seem to be able to create these familial bonds in her work.
Meh, of course, the romance and happy endings a ...more
This was the second book in the Mackade series. I would recommend you read the first, but it is not entirely necessary. This was a wonderful story and an easy read.
I just finished this last week, and I have to say, my views on Nora have improved. I always knew she wasn't a fluffy kind of romance writer where you feel like your brain is melting when you read it and all the women have heaving bosoms and the men are totally sensitive. I definitely will have to check out more of hers. ...more
Eleanor Marie Robertson was born on October 10, 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. She was the youngest of five children, also the only girl, of a marriage with Irish ancestors. Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her ...more
