And midwife Mel delivers her baby - at home, in a storm with hubby Jack's assistance. ( )

Preacher is an amazing man. Paige an even more amazing woman. Together they are a force of loving and caring people. Paige might have had a wounded, abused soul but John fixed her up and fell deeply in love. Her ex was an addict, obsessive and abusive and she ran nearly too late to protect the life of her son and herself. Her fear faded as time passed but it was warranted, her ex would kill her given the chance but John was strong, a marine, with friends everywhere to protect the woman he attached himself to to protect.

There were many sides to this story, it wasn't just John and Paige, but Mel, Jack, Rick and Liz ( two very pregnant and strong couples) Mike, a strong and wounded cop and Marine. All blended well together and there was much action. This was a pretty solid read. ( )

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 well. ( )

Too many stories going on at once, and the teen pregnancy was too much of a diversion out of the main romance. ( )

this was so much better than the first one! This story was full of beautiful things and sad things and awful things all put together into one book that just was a rollercoaster of emotion. I LOVED Preacher and Paige together and all the good things that they managed to build as the story progressed, including that wonderful little boy. I hope I get to see more of these three in the next books, as much as we got to take a look at how Mel and Jack were doing now in their married lives and as new parents. Very good! ( )

Book description
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.
