This was a great followup to The MacKade Brothers Rafe and Jared (MacKades #1 & 2) by Nora Roberts.
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 Rebecca could change herself so quickly and stick with all of the changes. However, I did enjoyed this story, and the mud scene was super!

Roberts loves her characters having babies and I like that she is pro-breastfeeding and often mentions the moms nursing their child (rather than many books which just pop a bottle in the baby's mouth.) It was beautiful how Rebecca compared Reagan's nursing to Madonna, and Savannah's nursing to a fertility goddess. :)

I'm really not into ghost stories so much, but Roberts seems to be, and does it well, intertwining it among all of the characters, and drawing me in.
