Book Description

Shane MacKade loved women. He loved the look of them, the smell of them, the taste of them—everything about them. So the last thing he expected was to become a one-woman man. And even more surprising was that it was the Ph.D.-toting academic Rebecca McKnight that had him heading for a fall. Are Shane's days as a bachelor over? It's a possibility....

    5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read July 1, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Nora Roberts did it again with MacKade brothers series. The brotherly bond between Jared, Rafe, Devin and Shane is like no other. Having read the other books, Shane was the brother that you wondered if he would ever settle down. Rebecca is an overachiever that has never known any type of love. You wouldn't have expected the farm boy to fall for the dr. but they are kindred spirits. Worth the money.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series July 18, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I love all the MacKade brothers books. This one is my favorite though. It wraps up the ghost story quite nicely and I love Shane and Rebecca. He is so protective of her and when he finds out what her life was like he makes sure she knows she is loved. I recommend the series to anyone that wants a nice love story with 4 hot brothers and the women who are prefect for them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Shane's story was the best!!!! September 8, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    "The Fall of...." was the best of the 4 Mackade series!!! I wish a man like Shane was around to sweep ME off my feet!!! Rebecca aka "Becky" to Shane was always a brainy nerd. WAS a nerd. Shane is absolutely smitten with her and they end up falling hard. This was the best followed by Devin, Jared, then Rafe. Nora has an exceptional talent for writing books in a series. Next I'm going to tackle the O'Hurleys!!!!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Farm Boy Falls Hard for Nerd April 1, 2005
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Nora Roberts is once again in her element when writing about a vibrant family in which each member oozes personality. Her series on the MacKade brothers is one of her most fun for the reader and gives you a bit of everything in the plots.

    The Fall of Shane MacKade is the last in this series and focuses on Shane MacKade, youngest brother to Jared, Rafe and Devin. Shane may be the youngest, but he holds his own in the family battles. Since the other three are happily married, Shane is determined to continue as a single man who enjoys the company of women, all women.

    When Dr. Rebecca Knight, who has spent her life in the world of academia and collecting degrees, comes to town to visit her old college roommate, Regan MacKade, a series of events are set in motion that will forever change the lives of both Rebecca and Shane. Rebecca is determined to start living life instead of studying it and decides on researching the ghosts that are said to haunt Antitam, Maryland - the site of many civil war battles and home to the MacKades. It's a bit of a detour from Rebecca's normal interests, but something she feels is worth exploring.

    All of the MacKades had experiences with the ghosts in their area. Having grown up there, they have heard the battles as the ghosts continue their fights on the fields, and all are eager to talk about these to Rebecca. That is all of the brothers except Shane, who denies any experiences with the paranormal activities that surround him and are fluent on the farm. Rebecca is eager to find out not only about the ghosts that haunt him, but why he is in denial about their existence.

    And since this is a Silhouette Special Edition, romance is the key ingredient in this story. Rebecca falls for Shane. Shane falls for Rebecca.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, intriguing series May 18, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Best of luck in finding all four installments to the MacKade series. I was fortunate enough to find all four of the books on the shelf at the local Bookstar. Since some of the series is out of print, I guess they had leftover copies, which is great for me because I won't buy a completed series without being able to purchase all of the books. Too frustrating otherwise! :)
    The MacKades is the best of Nora's contemporary series novels that I've read. Although I enjoyed the Stars of Mithra series enormously, the MacKades top it by a mile. The paranormal elements to the story are much more credible than the Stars and fit into the story much more seamlessly. I enjoyed plumbing ever more deeply in each succeeding novel into the ghosts of Antietam and seeing their continuing effect on the MacKade family.
    The best of the best of the four is THE HEART OF DEVIN MACKADE. After Devin's story, I'd list the others: Shane, Rafe, and Jared. Enjoy the MacKade brothers and their ladies. I look forward to Nora writing about the children someday ala the MacGregor series.

    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    The final book in the MacKade Brothers'. Shane MacKade was a man of the land. He lived on the farm his whole life. He didn't want to believe in the ghost and spirits that haunted the land, so he simply refused to acknowledge it. Enter Dr. Rebecca Knight, described as a brain. She had a photographic memory and a multitude of PHD's and other initials after her name. She was interested in researching all those things that had occurred in Antietam and the farmhouse.
    To say Shane was reluctant is an understatement. Shane took Rebecca out to celebrate the birth of a new niece. He challenged Rebecca to play 9 ball. If he wins, they go out and neck in his truck. If she wins, he lets her come to the farm, set up, and investigate without his interference. Rebecca has never played 9 ball before. Can't be hard...right?
    Rebecca interviews other family members who have had experiences with the ghosts. While doing this...she and Shane seem to be irresistibly drawn to each other. This is all new for quiet, shy Rebecca who has never been with a man. She decides to experiment with flirtation and see what happens.
    This was a fun book to read. I have always liked 'first time' romances. Many people have curiosity about ghosts. I enjoyed reading about their developing relationship and the history of the Civil War as it occurred in Antietam. The 4 book MacKade brother series covers the Civil War and ghosts. Enjoy.
