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 onethe 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 manemotions 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 Fidelisalways
faithfulhas taught him, it's that some things are
worth fighting for.
