Publisher's Summary

Learning that his former Ranger partner Gabe Navarro is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father, buffalo soldier John Cavanagh, is about to lose his land, Holt McKettrick ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. In San Antonio, he meets a lively lady named Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding and burned her bridal gown in the center of town. Thrown out of her father's house, she's hoping to pick up some cattle and start a small ranch of her own. Holt thinks she's out of her mind, but he revises his opinion after watching Lorelei learn to ride a mule named Seesaw, play a cutthroat game of poker, and all in all start to look mighty delectable. Cavanagh's land will be fine and Navarro won't hang - but is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro.

Really Enjoyed this One!

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to this story. It revolves around a corrupt judges daughter, who leaves homes because of her fathers attitude towards her and how he attempts to manipulate her life. Her male counterpart, abandons his wife to be on the day of his wedding, to go rescue his friend, who has been tried and found guilty of a crime he did not commit, and his foster fathers ranch is in trouble from an unscrupulous neighbor, who is doing everything to drive him out. When Holt and Lorelei meet up fireworks begin. This tightly woven story is atypical, and the ending is predictable, but the journey was very, very interesting. I will be reading more stories about the McKettricks, they seem to be a very interesting family, its just too bad audible doesn't have the first 3 books in their library, so you have to start with this one.
The narrator did an excellent job considering the number of voices and the varied ethnics groups she has to do.

No bad at all

An enjoyable story which gives us an introduction to the McKettrick family of Indian Rock which Miller does a great job with in McKettrick’s Luck, Pride and Heart. Christina Moore, the true name of the narrator, does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. One might find Lorelei Fellows, Holt’s love interest, an exasperating character but then there is no explaining what makes some women think and act the way they do. I also found Holt’s reaction to her antics a little over the top but then there are those A types who do tend to over react. It just seems out of character for the strong cowboy persona generally presented in western genre. If you must have steamy sex, best move on to the other books about this family. If you don’t need that and just like to relax with a good story then you should enjoy this edition of the McKettrick clan.
