Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

In the two weeks Aiden Riordan had been in Virgin River, he'd hiked over a hundred miles and grown himself a pretty hefty dark red beard. With his jet-black hair and brows and his bright green eyes, this legacy of his ancestors gave him a wild look. His four-year-old niece, Rosie, who sported a full head of red curls to go with her green eyes, had said, "Unca Aid! You're a Wide Iwish Rose, too!"

For a man without a mission for the first time since he could remember, this lay-back time was working out to his liking. Since undergrad in premed, he hadn't been without incredibly stiff goals. Now, at age thirty-six, after fourteen years in the navy, he was between jobs, completely unsure where he'd land next, and he felt good about it. Motivation interruptus had turned out to be a delightful state of being. The only thing he was certain of, he wasn't leaving Virgin River before the middle of summer. His older brother Luke and sister-in-law Shelby were expecting their first child, and he damn sure wasn't going to miss that. His brother Sean would soon be home from Iraq and planned a short leave before heading with his wife, Franci, and daughter, Rosie, to his next assignment, and Aiden looked forward to a little time with him, as well.

The June sun beat down on him. He wore fatigue pants, hiking boots and a tan T-shirt with salty perspiration rings under the arms. He was wet down his chest and back and smelled pretty ripe. He carried a camouflage backpack for protein bars and water, and strapped to his belt, a machete for clearing any brush that got in his way. He had a ball cap on his head and his black hair had already started to curl out from under the edges. A four-foot-tall walking staff had become his constant companion, and since a chance encounter with a too-confident mountain lion, he now carried a bow and a quiver of arrows. Of course, if he ran into a real cranky bear, he could be toast.

He wandered up a winding dirt road. It looked like it could be someone's driveway or an abandoned logging road, he was never sure which. He was aiming for a ridge he'd seen from below. At the end of the drive, he came face-to-face with what appeared to be an abandoned cabin. Experience had taught him the difference—if the path to the outhouse facilities was overgrown and it was especially run-down, it was probably vacant. There were no guarantees on that, however. He'd made that assumption once and an old woman had leveled a shotgun at him and ordered him to scram. Now, he gave the place a wide berth and walked through the woods toward the ridge.

Of course, there was no path; he used the machete to chop away some of the overgrowth. He came out of the other side to the most amazing, intoxicating sight. A woman wearing very short khaki shorts was bent over at the edge of her deck, backside pointed right at him. Even given his expertise in that department, he couldn't tell her exact age, but that was one beautiful booty on top of a couple of magnificent, long, tan legs. By the collection of ceramic pots and a watering can on the deck, he assumed she was potting plants. One flowerpot was balanced on the deck railing above her. She appeared to be digging in the earth, scooping dirt into a big pot.

He did know a couple of things. That butt and those legs belonged to someone under the age of fifty and there didn't appear to be a shotgun in sight. So, he chopped his way through the trees intending to say a friendly hello.

Still bent over, she looked at him through her legs. A beautiful strawberry blonde, which made him smile. She let out a huge, bloodcurdling scream, straightened abruptly and hit her head on the deck railing, knocking off a ceramic pot, which hit her on the noggin. And down she went. Splat!

"Damn," he muttered, running toward her as fast as he could. He dropped the machete and staff about halfway there.

She was sprawled facedown, out cold, so he gently rolled her over. She was stunning. Her face was as gorgeous as the rest of her. Her pulse was beating nice and strong in her carotid artery, but her forehead was bleeding. He'd seen the pot hit her in the back of the head, but she must have struck her forehead on the sharp edge of the deck going down, because in the center of that lovely brow, right at her hairline, there was a gash. And it was gushing, as head wounds like to do.

Aiden pulled out his handkerchief, which was, thankfully, clean, and pressed his hand over her cut to stanch the bleeding. She moaned a bit, but didn't open her eyes. With his thumb, he peeled back her lids one at a time; her pupils were equal and reactive to light, a good sign so far.

While applying pressure to the wound, Aiden shrugged off his backpack, quiver and bow. Then he scooped her up in his arms and carried her across the deck and through the French doors that were standing open, into the cabin. "Anybody home?" he called as he walked inside. Since there was no answer, he assumed the woman lived here alone and that the big Lincoln SUV was hers.

The leather sofa looked like a good bet—better than a bed or even what appeared to be a very new and expensive designer area rug and not something she'd want to bleed on. He placed her carefully on the couch, her head slightly elevated.

He looked around. From the outside, the place looked like an ordinary old cabin with new siding and a freshly painted, covered, railed deck with chairs. Inside, it was a richly furnished, very classy showplace.

He gingerly lifted the handkerchief; the bleeding had slowed to a trickle. There was blood on her white T-shirt, however. The first matter at hand was ice, then a bandage of some kind. He was in a large combination living/dining/kitchen area. A table sat in front of the opened French doors out of which he now saw the view he'd been in search of. He'd been so taken with that fine butt, he hadn't noticed the cabin was built right on the ridge.

Aiden looked around for a phone, but didn't see one. Then he washed his hands and rummaged through the freezer for ice, which he wrapped in a couple of dish towels—one for the front of her head, one for the back. The dish towels still had price tags on them. He propped her head against one ice pack and laid the other on her forehead. Even the application of cold didn't rouse her, so off he went in search of a bandage.

The kitchen was on the west end of the cabin, but on the opposite side were two doors. The one on the left led to a good-size bedroom, and on the right, a large bathroom. From the bathroom, the most obvious place to find first-aid supplies, another door connected to the bedroom.

Sure enough, under the sink, he found a blue canvas zipper bag with First Aid emblazoned in white on the canvas. He grabbed it and hurried back to the woman. In his experienced hands, it took only seconds to apply a little antibacterial cream and a butterfly to close the wound, covered by a Band-Aid. He reapplied the ice pack.

The next immediate order of business was getting her to an emergency room for a head CT; the loss of consciousness after a blow to the head could mean trouble. The longer she stayed unconscious, the more it concerned him, but he had moved fast—she hadn't been out more than a couple of minutes so far. He saw a purse on the kitchen counter and went to rifle through it for a phone, car keys, ID, anything. He unceremoniously dumped the contents and was bent over the counter, sifting through the loose items, when a shriek rent the air. His head came up sharply and he whacked it on the cupboards that hung over the counter. "Ah!" he yelled, grabbing the back of his head. He pinched his eyes closed hard, trying to get a grip through blinding pain.

But she continued to scream.

He turned toward her. She was scooting away from him on the leather couch, screaming her head off, her ice packs spilled to the floor.

"Shut up!" he ordered. She stopped abruptly, her hand covering her mouth. "We're both going to have brain damage if you don't stop doing that!"

"Get out of here!" she commanded. "I'll call the police!"

He rolled his eyes and shook his head. "Great idea. Where's the phone?" He lifted a cell phone from the things on the counter. "This one has no signal."

"What are you doing here? Why are you in my house? In my purse?"

He walked toward her, her purse hanging in his hand. "I saw you hit your head. I brought you inside and put ice and a bandage on the wound, but now we have to—"

"You hit me in the head?" she screeched, digging at the sofa with her heels to scoot away again.

"I didn't hit you—apparently I startled you when I came out of the forest and you jumped. You hit the back of your head on the deck railing and one of your pots fell on your head. I think you got the cut on your forehead when you hit the deck on the way down. Now where's the phone?"

"Oh God," she said, her fingers going to the bandage, touching it carefully. "The phone's going to be installed tomorrow. Along with my satellite dish. So I can have Internet and watch movies."

"That isn't going to help much. Listen, it's a small cut. Head wounds bleed a lot. I doubt it'll even leave a scar. But losing consciousness is—"

"I'll give you money if you just won't hurt me."

"I bandaged your head, for God's sake! I'm not going to hurt you and I don't want money!" He lifted the purse in his hand. "I was looking for your car keys—you need a CAT scan. Maybe a couple of stitches."

"Why?" she asked, her voice quivering.

He sighed. "Because you lost consciousness—not a good sign. Now, where are your keys?"

"Why?" she asked again.

"I'm going to drive you to the emergency room so you can get your head examined!"

"I'll do it," she said. "I'll drive myself...

Erin is at a crossroads in her life. For the first time since she was a teenager she has no responsibility for her younger siblings. Her brother is now a doctor and her sister is married and expecting her first child. She's been focused on work and her family for so long that she doesn't know how to have a life! So she decides to use her brother-in-law's cabin in Virgin River to rest and try to figure out exactly what to do. That's before Aiden Riordan startles her out of her contemplations. An emergency room trip later and things start to heat up.

Aiden is a Navy doctor who is on leave and also trying to figure out what to do with his life. His brothers are happily married and his mother is shacking up with a man, traveling the country in a RV (something Aiden is still trying to accept). Aiden tried marriage eight years ago, only to find himself married to a woman with what can only be called sanity issues. But something about Erin makes him think he's finally found the right woman and for the first time Erin finds herself truly falling in love. Just when everything seems perfect, the nightmare of Aiden's first wife drops back in their life. Can they work though the havoc she stirs up?

Erin and Aiden might be my favorite Virgin River characters since Jack and Mel (who also appear in a subplot that is not to be missed). Readers of the Virgin River series will definitely love this one and new readers will find themselves as addicted as the rest of us! Full of laughs and romance Moonlight Road shows that Robyn Carr simply ROCKS!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although never a mom, attorney Erin Foley feels the empty nest syndrome as the younger siblings she raised have moved on. Taking a time out to reassess her life, she plans on a summer vacation in Virgin River.

After fourteen years with the Navy, Dr. Aiden Riordan has left the military. He comes to Virgin River to visit family with plans to stay around until his sister-in-law Shelby gives birth.

When the two visitors meet, sparks fly and not just from heads clashing into inanimate objects. Still she prefers some alone time and he never moved past his horrific former marriage to Annalee. When his ex wife demands reentry into his life and much more, Aiden goes back into his solitary confinement.

The latest return to Virgin River is a pleasant tale filled with humor and poignancy as neither the lawyer nor the doctor are ready for love, but love is ready for them. The support cast as always is solid with everyone except Annalee rooting for Erin and Aiden to find happiness with one another. Although Annalee and her antics are over the top of Mount Tamalpais, fans will enjoy the latest visit to Virgin River.

I'm slowly making my way through the Virgin River series and so far, this is one of my favorites.

The two main characters - Erin & Aiden are fabulous characters. Robyn Carr has given interesting depth to Erin, which further explains her deep connections to her siblings and her past reactions (which appear in a previous book). And Aiden has been fleshed out as not only a genuine,sensitive,caring man (as most men in this series are!) but one who is also cheeky (in the way we all love) and who has very human responses to frustrating events in his life, which we don't always see written in these sensitive types.

There's also a slightly sinister slant in this novel with the inclusion of Aiden's ex-wife. I was genuinely anxious in a few spots with the slow build up to the final scene with this truly cold-hearted character but I loved that Carr can write in so many different aspects of human nature in her series that make each book stand out on its own.

I also loved the appearance of past characters in this novel, which Carr consistently does. (Some times there's too much taken away from the main characters but I thought this novel had the right mix.) We not only get to re-visit some favorite characters, but Carr also further develops them, which is not a focus for all authors. There's really great development of Jack and Mel (from book #1) and at one stage, I was getting really frustrated with Mel but Carr has a wonderful way of presenting characters with all their flaws, and yet providing depth of understanding as to their motivations, taking the reader on the full journey. So all is right in the world by the end!

Overall - Great read. Great character development. Emotionally engaging story. Can't wait to start the next one!

Robyn Carr is a wonderful writer who knows how to breathe life into every character she writes. I have read all of the books in her Virgin River series and Angel's Peak and Moonlight Road were far and away my favorites. The dialogue is funny and well written, the characters are appealing and Carr blends just the right amount of romance, sex and action to keep you interested from the first page to the last.

Aiden Riordan is a doctor who has recently separated from the Navy and is visiting his brother who owns a bunch of cabins near Virgin River, while he considers his next career move. While hiking through the woods one day, he comes upon a cabin and a beautiful young woman whom he scares to death because of his ragged appearance and the huge machete he is carrying. When Erin hits her head on the deck and is knocked unconscious, Aiden takes her to the hospital and so begins an unlikely romance between an uptight lawyer who hasn't had a vacation in years and a laid back, scruffy looking OB/GYN who is thinking that it might just be fun to rattle Erin's cage a little to see if he can break through that cool exterior. But when Aiden's psycho ex-wife turns up, things get really crazy and Aiden finds himself fighting for his sanity and his chance to have a life with Erin.

The cast of supporting characters like Aiden's brothers and his mother and Erin's younger sister Marci who we met in A Virgin River Christmas, as well as many of our favorites from previous VR books make the story all the richer and each visit to this little town seems to get better and better. A solid five stars for Robyn Carr's Moonlight Road.
