John "Preacher" Middleton is about to close the bar when a young woman and her three-year-old son come in out of the wet October night. A marine who has seen his share of pain, Preacher knows a crisis when he sees one—the woman is covered in bruises. He wants to protect them, and he wants to punish whoever did this to her, but he knows immediately that this inclination to protect is something much more. Paige Lassiter has stirred up emotions in this gentle giant of a man—emotions that he has never allowed himself to feel. But when Paige's ex-husband turns up in Virgin River, Preacher knows his own future hangs in the balance. And if there's one thing the marines' motto of Semper Fidelis—always faithful—has taught him, it's that some things are worth fighting for.

But the synopsis made it sound like the story was independent of the first one so I thought it would be okay. And to some extent it was. There were obvious references to things that had happened in the first b...

In this novel we also have a side story with Rick and Liz and we get more of Jack and Mel!My favorite thing about Robyn Carr is she takes real life scary issues (drugs, a...
I love this series particularly because of the characters. The men are the perfect blend of masculinity and tenderness and the woman are feminine but strong. Although this is a contemporary setting, the characters are full of old fashioned charm. The small town setting is a real win in my book as...
