When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad, she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.
But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her plans…and former marine Jack Sheridan cements them into place.
Being a single dad was never on Michael Young’s agenda. Yet with the sudden loss of his wife, that’s exactly the role he has. On his best days, he thinks he can handle it. On his worst… Luckily, family friend Angie Bartlett has his back, easily stepping in to help out. Lately, though, something has changed.
Michael is noticing exactly how gorgeous Angie is, and how single she is. She’s constantly in his thoughts and he feels an attraction he never expected. Does he dare disrupt the very good thing they have going? If they have a fling that goes nowhere, he stands to lose everything–including her. But if they make it work, he stands to gain everything!
There’s something about a cowboy, right? Exhibit A: Gunner Wilson–Pistol Rock’s resident gunslinger. He’s broad-chested, inked, with a devilish swagger that could make a nun to recant.

Yet we can’t keep our hands off each other.
Folks in town say he’s bad news. I beg to differ. He’s changed. They think I should give him the boot. Rid my life of more trouble. But what they don’t know is– I’m the one welcoming trouble into our small town. And sometimes a reformed bad boy is the only thing standing between a girl and some-not-so-very-good men.
Reputed for his carnal skills, notorious rake, Joseph d’Alumbert, prefers amorous encounters without any sort of emotional entanglement–until a most unique lady stirs tender feelings…and hot desire.

Nick thinks of himself as Daddy 3.0, a stay-at-home-dad–but he just wasn’t programmed for this.
He must navigate a new world of jungle gyms and playdates while supporting his surgeon wife. He tries his best to be there for the twins, but he can’t stop making a mess of things. He’s just about nearing the end of his rope when the Swing Incident happens. The Swing Incident, spoken of in hushed tones around Nick’s New York City apartment building, has caused the resident queen bee, nicknamed “Supermom,” to declare him an enemy for life…
