Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to Virgin River with the books that started it all....

Shelby McIntyre has big plans - plans that include finding Mr. Right. Her dream man will have a clean-shaven jaw, creases in his pants and hopefully an advanced degree. What she gets is rugged Luke Riordan.

At 25, after five years as her mother’s caregiver, it’s time for Shelby to experience freedom and adventure. Time for travel, college, and romance. But when she visits Virgin River, she runs into Luke Riordan, decidedly not whom she has in mind. 

A handsome Blackhawk pilot, Luke exited the army after 20 years, four wars, and having been shot out of the sky three times. At 38 he’s tough and jaded. His major was in one-night stands, with a minor in commitment avoidance. 

Technically, these two are all wrong for one another. But sometimes what you want and what you need are two different things...two very good things. 

Exclusive bonus content included!

Featured Article: Virgin River—The Definitive Explainer


Before it was adapted into a Netflix show, Virgin River was a series of more than 20 novels by New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr. The audiobooks, all read by Audie Award-winning narrator Thérèse Plummer, are well-loved by a wide audience. The series takes place in Virgin River and revolves around new resident Melinda Monroe, a nurse practitioner and midwife. There's more to this sleepy town than first appearances suggest.

Temptation Ridge

Great continuing story of Virgin River area and the. people in that community. Robin Carr does such an outstanding job of sucking us in to her stories - So hard to put down. This one was as good as the first one! Keep them coming!!!

Could have been better

Would have been great if there had not been too many characters, too many side stories. Plus a very rushed ending.

I love Robyn Carr’s Virgin River Books

They are all riveting and I can’t wait to start the next one. The combination of her and Ms. Plummer is an incredible combination.

Always fantastic!

I originally listened to this when this series was in the Romance Package. During Audible's recent sale I've purchased nearly all this series. I love it. This story is mostly about Shelby and Luke. There is a side story where we are introduced to Abby and Cameron. We already met him in Vanessa's book. We also see the town come together in a couple of tragedies that I won't say and we see a short bit about the 'town drunk' Cheryl. One problem that I have is RC's use of the word 'wonderful'. She uses it too many times for my taste, but overall, I love these stories and this one is one of my favorites. Its worth the credit if you can't get it on sale.
