Author Info
Robyn Carr
Romance writer Robyn Carr is well known for her contemporary Virgin River novels, which take place in a fictional town in California. Carr was born in Minnesota, but when she married her high-school sweetheart, Jim, his military career took the couple to bases in Texas, Florida, California, and Arizona. Although she had trained as a nurse, Carr was unable to seriously pursue her career because of the frequency of their moves. Confined to bed during a difficult pregnancy, she read up to 10 romances a week, and she came to believe that she could become a writer instead. In 1980 her first historical romance, CHELYNNE, was published. She later branched out into contemporary settings, and in 2007 she published VIRGIN RIVER, the first book in her popular series. Many of the characters in the Virgin River books are veterans, a group for which Carr has a special affinity. (Her husband is now retired from the Air Force, and the couple has settled in Las Vegas.) Although she is exceedingly fond of Virgin River and its denizens, Carr has said that if the rugged town actually existed, she would not want to live there. "I have an overwhelming need to live in a place where I can get my eyebrows waxed," she has quipped.
From the Publisher
Annotation lush coastal forests of California's Pacific Northwest. In TEMPTATION RIDGE, young Shelby MacIntyre comes to Virgin River looking for the perfect husband, a rich, clean-cut man, maybe a doctor. Instead she finds herself thrown into the life of rugged and cynical Luke Riordan, a former Blackhawk helicopter pilot who now specializes in short-term flings. He doesn't match any of her expectation for love; he's not interested in love at all; but against the dreamy backdrop of Virgin River, both of them are in for a surprise.
Editors Note 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 twenty-five, 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 twenty years, four wars and having been shot out of the sky three times. At thirty-eight 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.
