In RITA Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr’s Temptation Ridge, two lonely hearts are surprised by love while visiting the close-knit mountain community of Virgin River. Shelby, a sheltered and idealistic 25-year-old, doesn’t want to fall for a man like Luke. And 38-year-old Luke, a battle-hardened Blackhawk pilot, fears being hurt by a young lady like Shelby.

Robyn Carr does it again with another excellent story in the Virgin River series. If you love Robyn Carr's other VR books you will love this one. The story of Luke and Shelby is excellent. Several other side love stories and catching up on favorite characters from previous books too. I would pay 2 credits for these books. The narrator is excellent too. Don't miss these!!
I love these Virgin River books by Robyn Carr. I think the narrator is wonderful and with each one of these books I feel like I'm with family. She always includes characters from the other books and ties them together. The men love their women and cherish them as well as their children and always look out for their community. I so wish that Ms. Carr would write about a few more of Jacks service friends and maybe some of Mels friends. These books have some spicey romance but within the context of the story line not just sex for sex sake. These books are always a good use of your time.
This series is by far one of the best I've read, and this installment is no exception. I recommend starting at the beginning with Virgin River so that you can become familiar with all the characters and reading the books in chronological order. Top notch character development and plot lines. Every book in this series, including this one, is well worth the credit!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Absolutely! The story is sweet, sexy and interesting. There are a few secondary story lines that are very interesting as well. And Therese Plummer is the very best narrator!!!
I don't like to give spoilers but this book has many memorable moments.
The end was movie perfect!!! Loved it.
When a very special character dies... Sad
The series should be read in order (this is book 7). I've really liked every book in the Virgin River Series.
After reading Virgin River, I couldn't wait to start Shelter Mountain, and now I am totally hooked on the series. They keep getting better, and I feel like the characters are old friends and I'm growing with them. But what I am most impressed with, is Therese Plummer's performances. Her ability to alter her voice to very distinct female and male characters is amazing. But not only that...she puts so much emotion into her characters that I have found myself reaching for tissues to dab up the tears! The series is great, and so is the narrator.
Professional artist, painting and listening to audio books at least a few days a week.
All the books in this series are light, predictable reading. But for me they offer a pleasant break from "heavier" reading and are good listening while I am painting. On to the next one in the series.
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
A perfect love story, with the perfect mix of love, lust, raw anger, raw hurt and rejection.. Then to top it all, they fall in love, have a wonderful life in the mountains surrounded by horses, dogs, nature and children.... At the same time it is steamy and just YUMMY!!!
Love the way the series continues, but I have also listened to Hidden Summit and Summer in Sonoma. The characters mix in with the series. Currently, listening to book 7. I do a lot of driving and this is great entertainment. I dream to retire in this type of community.
I enjoyed this book very much. Although I have not read the previous books to this series I was able to follow the characters from the previous books with ease. Loved the writing style and look forward to more books from this series.
This series started off a little slow but it gets better with each book. I love hearing about the whole town everytime. It makes me want to live in Virgin River!
My first title by the author was Virgin River and I frankly liked that story better. Temptation Ridge is also a good story, but there are too many different stories put together in one book. There are several different side stories developed at the same time and for that reason the relationship between the main couple stays a bit superficial. All the stories are good, but I personally do not like the story to be fractured, I prefer to follow mostly one couple throughout the book.
At some points the story also tended to be just too cute and all the characters a bit too good and nice.
Overall I plan to buy more books by this author just because the stories are simple and relaxing. They make me feel good.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
