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.

The best!!

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!!

temptation Ridge

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.

Robynn Carr Has A New Fan


This is a wonderful book but it had a lot of material and people either in relationships or finding new relationships with the opposite sex. The book is really focused on Shelby (25 years old) and Luke (38 years old) it was absolutely wonderful.

Each couple or potential couple have their issues with their other half. As I said, the focus is mostly on Shelby & Luke's relationship. He is a former Black Hawk pilot and she is a "20 something" who has always been a caregiver for her mother. She never had an opportunity to do things that high school and college girls got to do.

Now that her mother has passed, she decides to take a little bit of time to focus on herself and re-creating who she is. One night at the local bar she notices Luke...with all his experience. She sets her eyes on him.

This is a great book, I tried to read another one by Robynn Carr, but I could just not get into it. I'm glad that I gave her a second chance with Temptation Ridge, because I think I might be turning into a bit of a fan!

Performance: I listen to my books on a faster speed most of the time, so I didn't notice the complaints of others. I thought the performance was very good.

If you enjoy contemporary romance you'll definitely like this. There are a few risqué moments but they are few and far between.

Great listen, I believe I got this one on sale. There's plenty of content, filled with enough detail & performed well. I will be spending more credits for this series.

Another excellent story!

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!

Another great Virgin River installment!

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.

Absolutely Love..............

Any additional comments?

I have really enjoyed listening to this series. The narrator, Theresa Plummer, is the best narrator. Each character has there own voice and you can tell a difference between each character. I love the fact that each book keeps telling you about the past characters along with introducing new characters. I could listen to these books over and over again!!

My favorite book of the series so far...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Temptation Ridge?

I don't like to give spoilers but this book has many memorable moments.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end was movie perfect!!! Loved it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When a very special character dies... Sad

Any additional comments?

The series should be read in order (this is book 7). I've really liked every book in the Virgin River Series.

Not a Fan of Older Man/Young Virgins

While I have thoroughly enjoyed Robyn Carr's novels, especially the Virgin River series, I was not entertained by Luke and Shelby's relationship - the stereotypical older man seduced by a innocent young virgin.

Catching up on the other Virgin River residents was interesting; I particularly enjoyed the romance between Walt and Muriel, proving that there is passion after the age of 55. Their background and personalities were so much more interesting than Shelby loosing her virginity to a man old enough to be her father.

Although Luke was basically a good guy and Shelby had potential, together they just seemed weirdly unbelievable. Luckily, the other Virgin River characters carried the story and the rest of this series is addicting.

Cute story

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.
