Miriam Minger's first novel Twin Passions, a Viking romance in honor of her Norwegian heritage, was called "A fabulous debut!" by Romantic Times. Since then, Miriam has swept readers into her unforgettable historical romances with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. She is the winner of several Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards--including Best Medieval Historical Romance of the Year for The Pagan's Prize--and a two-time RITA Award Finalist for A Hint of Rapture and Captive Rose.
Miriam Minger's contemporary novel Ripped Apart, "An absolute gem of a romantic suspense. Five Stars!" has won rave reviews from romance and thriller readers alike. Miriam is also happy to announce that her Little Mike and Maddie series of children's picture books about a lovable pair of dogs and their motorcycle adventures is available under her pen name, Miriam Aronson.
Bestselling author Miriam Minger says: It's been a wonderful experience to have all my novels published as eBooks, but the greatest thrill for me as a writer is when readers take the time to let me know they enjoyed my stories…
"I have read hundreds if not thousands of books in my lifetime and not once have I ever been moved to comment on one until now. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed. I cried. I remained at the edge of my seat devouring every single word you wove with this incredible story. I just wanted to let you know how deeply this story moved me and to thank you for creating it."
“Great book! I expect nothing less from Miriam Minger. Each tale gives a captivating love story with a suspenseful twist. She keeps the reader on their toes. This is a must read!”
“I loved this book so much that I stayed up all night just to finish. This is the third book I have read by Miriam Minger and I’m truly a fan. I have enjoyed every book I have read and this one was great. I loved the hero and the heroine. Well worth keeping and rereading.”
“Miriam Minger is a superb writer whose books reflect her intelligence, humor, and wit. She has an imagination which knows no bounds. Her men are charming, sexy, and controlling, but also conscientious and honorable. The women are intelligent, beautiful, and proud as well as feisty and willful. The relationships are explosive and exciting. The antagonists are so loathsome and destructive that you never know if love can possibly survive, which always keeps me up way past my bedtime! I am always captivated from cover to cover.”
Wow. These reader comments left me speechless...and grateful. I had done my job, which is to make you feel like you've dropped feet first into a world that captures your imagination and emotions so vividly you might be living and breathing the story. And that's one of the purest joys of reading, isn't it? I know it is for me...and it is my hope to continue to write books that make you feel the passion, live and breathe the adventure, laugh and cry and touch your heart.

- The Hands of God
on Dec. 28, 2011
An extraordinary story about an extraordinary young woman -
A teen that lost her hands at an early age in a tragic accident, Pamela Ruka has a gift of seeing things in a special way that allows her to pick the winners in horse races--and this gift ultimately sets her upon a course that transforms her life. This gift also brings a steady stream of characters into Pamela’s life—some good and some not so good--that all play their part in her journey from living as a hostage in her abusive grandfather’s home to a young woman determined—and able—to help others.
The trait that touched me the most about Pamela is her indomitable spirit in spite of setbacks, intense physical and medical struggles, and the constant reality that she is viewed as a freak instead of a human being like everyone else. No victim here, Pamela walks bravely and with great faith through the fire that could have destroyed her into an inspiring life of purpose and passion.
The Hands of God . . . truly a story of courage and triumph that will leave you pondering its message long after you finish the book.
