This is a pretty early Nora. The MacKade brothers live on/near what was once a Civil War battleground, so that history--stories about what happened back then, and maybe even ghosts--play a part in the stories. The hero is a divorced lawyer who's come home to build his practice there. Heroine is a single mom who's finally found a place to call home and raise her son. She's prickly and determined not to depend on anyone. He's got issues with pride (duh), though he does seem to work through them pretty quick. I liked the heroine's characterization as a tough woman who's willing to try again, and I liked the hero who takes being smacked upside the head (Not so much literally) pretty well and is willing to admit that he's being a dumba$$ once he gets it. And the more I've thought about it, the better I like it. Liked it a lot.
