In RITA Award–winning, New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr’s Temptation Ridge, two lonely hearts
are surprised by love while visiting the close-knit mountain community of Virgin River.
After caring for her terminally ill mother for five years, 25-year-old Shelby McIntyre wants to experience travel,
college, and romance. And then she runs smack dab into Luke Riordan—not exactly the collegiate Mr. Right of her
dreams. A rugged Blackhawk pilot, Luke just retired from the Army after two decades, four wars, and three helicopter
shoot-downs. At 38, he’s tough as nails with a major in one-night stands and a minor in commitment avoidance. While
Luke fears getting hurt again by a younger woman, Shelby isn’t interested in a battle-hardened veteran. And yet sparks
fly as these polar opposites try to withstand the force that draws them together.
As this irresistible romance unfolds, Thérèse Plummer’s compelling narration masterfully captures the vulnerability
and ardor of unexpected love.
