Unwittingly party to an adulterous affair, Molly Shields is a cute leading lady with a nice amount of spit fire. Keegan McKettrick is a hunka burnin' cowboy who is in love with the wife to the man Molly played mistress too. Think this is a tangled web woven yet? Toss in Molly's baby by the cheating husband that she adopted out to the Wife (who has terminal cancer and is dying, to boot) and hoo boy, this pot sure is a bubblin' now!

A great read with lots of emotional roller-coastering and fairly believable, realistic characters (by romance novel standards, of course). Made me smile and tear up a little, and I immediately went to the library to scrounge up the other books in the McKettrick Men series.

Read this in one day, partially because it's an easy read and partially because I read it all in one big delicious gulp. Sometimes it was a little confusing because Ms. Miller seemed to feel the need to include every character from her McKennit series (of which this is number 8, and number 3 of the McKennit Men series) and their stories. If I wanted to know their deal, I'd go read their books. (Which I will, actually, for Jesse and Rance's stories, even though now I know how they end!!) Lots of emotional romance and drama with some descriptiveness of the sexual act, but not pages and pages of really explicit stuff. If you are in it for the smut, this book is not for you. If smut free is the way to be (like me!) then this one should be good for you.

I really enjoyed this book. Was it emotional you say? Yes, for sure it was. At times quite the tearjerker.
It had great main characters with a good cast of secondary people too. Keegan's daughter Devon was one of those and her part in the story was good as well. She was only ten years old but she'd seen her share of sorrows. She also had an understanding of some unpleasant facts of her life that caused her to have wisdom beyond her years at times. Keegan loved her fiercely and he has to fight just as fiercely at every new greedy scheme his ex-wife throws at him. And there are plenty of those. His troubles just seem to pile up. The top worst thing he has to face is the impending death of one of his closest friends.
Molly also has problems that are pilling up on her although they are of a different nature than Keegan's. But adding to it is the fierce hate that Keegan demonstrates towards her. He has his reasons not to trust her but that doesn't make it hurt less. Molly may be a highly successful woman in her chosen field but she feels way over her head when she begins to deal with some personal issues.
Not to worry it isn't all sadness; there will be a hard fought for H.E.A.

I am an avid reader, and I have devoured the Corbin series and McKettrick series in this last month. This book has stopped me in my tracks. I am finding it very sad, and difficult to read. Hats off to you Ms. Miller. I gotta give her credit. I have read 10 of her books probably faster than any series I have ever read before, and one stinker out of 10 isn't bad. I will keep right on reading, and enjoying her other books. I am left dumbfounded by the path she chose to go in this book. nothing remotely romantic about it. I don't even consider this one of the romance genre.

A contemporary western romance full of sadness and joy, McKettrick's Heart takes broken hearts and fills them with romance and goodness. More serious in tone than the others in the New McKettrick Men series, this novel still captures the reader's heart and creates a world where caring for others leads one to true happiness.

Molly Shields, a literary agent with Pulitzer prize clients, comes to Indian Rock, Arizona to pursue a more important client -- her son whom she gave up for adoption to Psyche Ryan. Psyche summoned her with promises that she would return Lucas to her, his birth-mother, as long as Molly abides by certain conditions of the contract. When Molly discovers that Psyche is dying of cancer, she thinks there is more to this contract than meets the eye. Will Psyche keep her word or is this her final revenge for having an affair with Psyche's now-deceased husband?

Always the ambitious corporate businessman, Keegan McKettrick has a passion for the family business and little else. Keegan has not had much luck with women. His wife cheated on him, divorced him, took his money and daughter and still makes his life miserable with her devious games. The other McKettrick men may have found love, but Keegan is a heart-broken cynic. When he spots Psyche's maid putting Molly's baggage in his friend Psyche's car, he cannot believe the audacity of this disreputable woman. He decides to investigate Molly to protect Psyche even if he is also somehow drawn to Molly at the same time he despises her. If that was not enough, Keegan must also protect his own daughter Devon from her mother's (his ex-wife) secrets and manipulations.

The romance in this novel focuses on lost children, an adopted child soon to lose his last parent and the child of an unhappy marriage and divorced parents. As in her previous romances, I find it refreshing to see characters who do what is good for others and in the process discover what is good and right for their hearts. Linda Lael Miller has a real gift for healing broken hearts in her romances. This third romance has even more unusual and difficult situations but in creating more depth, the reader experiences the same McKettrick pleasure of her hero and heroine finding exactly what they need to heal the past even if the resolution is at least in some part unexpected.

Keegan McKettrick has sworn off love following his divorce, but could newcomer Molly Shields be the woman to change his mind--even if, at first, she stirs up only resentment?

Molly conceived a child with Psyche's now-dead husband approximately two years ago, and reluctantly turned the baby over to him and Psyche after the birth. Now, suffering from terminal cancer, Psyche asks Molly if she'll raise the toddler.

Molly is overjoyed to be reunited with her son, but less than thrilled over Psyche's conditions: Molly must raise the child in Indian Rock - meaning the end of Molly's successful L.A. literary agency--and she must share parenting duties with the stubborn, forceful Keegan, who's convinced that Molly harbours sinister motives.

The synopsis doesn't do this book justice. This is actually just an `alright' book, but what really stood out for me it the unique and unpredictable ways the H and h arrived at their HEA. I have truly never read such original plot manoeuvres. These are what took the book from 3 stars to 4 stars for me. In the end I've given it 3.5 stars as, though original and unpredictable, it was hard to get into at first. Still - worth a read.

Following a deep betrayal and subsequent nasty divorce, Keegan McKettrick vows no more permanent relationships with women. To accomplish his goal he buries himself in the family firm.

Two years ago Molly Shields swore that there will be no men in her life after she gave birth to a child with a man she did not know was married. Reluctantly the Los Angeles based literary agent for the sake of the infant gave up all rights so that the child could be raised by two parents. However, the louse Thayer Ryan who impregnated her is dead and now his widow Psyche is dying from cancer and wants to see her. Psyche asks Molly to raise the toddler, but with the stipulation that she relocates to Indian Rock, Arizona where Keegan will share the parenting chores. He does not trust her because she is a woman, because she gave up her baby, because she was the other woman, and finally because he wants her too much. She thinks he is an obstinate dope who she wants too much.

The final book in Linda Lael Miller's superb modern day McKettrick Cowboy romances (see MCKETTRICK'S PRIDE and MCKETTRICK'S LUCK) is an excellent tale of love between two distrusting souls who feels that emotion only leads to trouble and heartache. Their "family" beta test is hot and hilarious especially when the rest of the horde invades their relationship. Contemporary fans will appreciate this delightful tale that showcases Ms. Miller's abilities as she completes her bringing her nineteenth century McKettrick family romances into the 2007 descendents with a winner.

When I finished the first two books in this series and picked up this one, I thought, " There is no way she can top the other two." Wrong!! If you haven't read Mckettrick's Luck and McKettricks Pride be sure that you read them first. I read all three of them in quick succession, and I am tempted to go back and read them again, which is something I never do. They were that good!

McKettrick's heart is keegan's story. I used to think I was in love with Jesse(maybe I still am just a little bit!), but I think i've moved on to Keegan. Molly and Keegan are both wonderfully written characters and the secondary characters in this book are anything but secondary. I rarely get into a book so much that I laugh out loud and cry, but Linda Lael Miller is one of those rare, extremely talented authors that had me doing both. I can't say enough about this wonderful book. A great end to a sexy, heartwarming series! It will stay with you for a long time!

Keegan as I was excited to see how his story would turn out. Just didn't do it for me, seemed a little far fetched storyline. Best part was when the guys all got behind the shed to have it out with each other and it showed molly that Jesse and Rance are not as strong as they think they are since t hey go trailing after their women. It was kinda weird and strange and his character was so hard on Molly. I'm like why? Many ppl would have said forget it.. but she didn't. Just a little strange for me.. it was ok.

I love Miller's McKettricks series... she is such a brilliant writer... this one was so sexy... I loved the plot and the characters. Molly was independent, and strong, she practically carried the weight of her world on her shoulders... Keegan was sexy and manly... I loved their chemistry in this book. Psyche was so understanding and she even pulled a trick on them, despite the fact that she was dying from terminal cancer. To me, she was a sweet character, and I was glad to see some of the other characters in there, such as Jesse, and Rance...

Another excellent addition to the McKettrick series. Premise was very unusual and caught my interest right away. Both Molly and Keegan are fractured but honorable people. The family aspect is very good. Jesse, Rance and Travis play important rolls in this issue.

Sensuality is an 8. But it also involves a tearjerker of a story. Keep a tissue handy. I enjoyed this story and all of its characters immensely.

I've read quite a few of Linda Millers books. Most of them I really like, hence I keep reading them. This one in particular, I did not care for. I take romance novels with a grain of salt, and a certain amount of expected "cheesiness" (for lack of a better word). I just didn't like the plot of this one. I was expecting more about Molly & Keegan actually falling in love with each other, rather than just the very end. 98% of it dragged on for me. Plus, the sex scenes where Molly feels as though Keegan envisions her as Psyche, really irked me.

I loved the McKettrick series and Keegan's story was one that had the most potential after the glimpses we got of him in the first 2 books. Miller has a great cast of characters here but insists on putting them in the most contrived circumstances and making them behave like idiots. At first the premise was interesting but the plot just got more ridiculous as we go. Reading this one was an exercise in frustration as I knew these characters deserved better. Looks like the last in the trilogy predictably gets the crappiest treatment.

I have read all three books in this trilogy, and must say I am disapointed there was only three. I want to keep going and going. These books are wonderful. The author certainly has a feel for the modern day cowboy/rancher/corporate man. I certainly would recomend these books to anyone, and already have many times. Just start with the first one and move forward, as they "flow" in that order. Even individually, the books can be read and understood. They are wonderful!

This was one of Linda's Best books ever! I laughed out loud, and I cried. Keegan was so real. His character was well developed and while reading this book, it felt like you knew him. It felt like you right there in the middle of all the chaos. The passion was wonderful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! I say, go pick up every single one of the McKettrick books available! There are 8 total, and one coming out in December.

I liked this book I just felt that the characters fell in love too fast. Really didn't seem like they interacted too much. They seemed to have so many other things going on around them that they couldn't just be together, alone for awhile to see how they really felt about each other.

A kind of heart-wrenching and depressing story. It was just, 'okay'. Keegan and Molly's love for each other wasn't even believable. It needed an epilogue to tie up some loose ends...

The third in the McKettrick men trilogy, McKettrick's Heart was a really wonderful romance for anyone that is a romance buff. Keegan and Molly didn't exactly hit it off in beginning but it was a pretty lively read, good dialogue and very well written. A fast light read.

This I disliked of ALL the McKettrick books which was disappointing for I found Keegan nice and funny in the others. This one he was cold and abusive verbally to Molly. I did not care for Psych even though she was dying, she was not a sympthic character. She wanted to run their lives and I felt Keegan should have been over her years ago for she was never mentioned before. It did end well though even if they seem to have no growing feelings til almost the last chapter. Love the McKettricks but felt Keegans story shorted readers and Keegan.

Miller is one of my fav authors. She is easy to read, understand, and for me it's easy to get in to her stores. Yes most of her books are very simulare but they are always enjoyable!

Just when you think Ms. Miller could not top her prior stories, she sets out to prove you wrong! McKettrick's Heart is rivoting and captures your interest from beginning to end. You won't be able to put this book down as the case with McKettrick's Luck and McKettrick's Pride. Lose yourself in this phenominal book series about the modern day West!

I did like this book but I am not quite sure why she was so hard on Molly. Why all the characters were really pretty cold to her. She didn't know he was married right? So ease up already! I wish she had a little more backbone and stood up for herself. Keegan should have apologized for his behavior!

LLM has a good story plot but the hero in this book is a Class A Jerk from day one. He proceeds to make life miserable for the heroine.

I did not like this character. However, it is good reading material and

worth the time it took to read it. Get your hankies ready because it is

a tearjerker

I don't like the fact the you are not letting me read the book before you ask for my rating. And that you don't let me move forward unless I do.
