About Ruth Ann Nordin

Ruth Ann Nordin has written almost 100 romances, ranging from Regencies to historical westerns to contemporaries. She plays with other genres from time to time, but her first love is romance. She has been happily married for twenty-one years to a sweet and funny guy, and they have four sons, who are all taller than Ruth now that they're 16, 17, 18, and 19. The good thing is she doesn't need a ladder, and there's always someone to take care of a mouse that squeezes its way into her Montana home. She considers herself very lucky to have led such a charmed life. Being able to play with characters and create stories is just icing on the cake. Hopefully, she'll get to keep doing this many years to come.

I wasn't a fan of Joel at the very beginning because he spent his time whining but OMG! By the end of the book I wanted more! LOL... you learn to love each and every character in Ruth Ann Nordin's books. Loved the book! Maybe a story for Sep? Would love to know how he turned out...

Shotgun Groom by Ruth Ann Nordin
Nebraska Series Book 6
Ruth does it again! Another exciting book in her Nebraska series. This time it is pesky baby brother Joel's turn. In A Bride for Tom we meet Joel. He is always picking on Tom and avoiding chores whenever he can. And full of mischief as well. This time the tables are turned though. Joel has been working with the local doctor so he can one day be one as well. Farm work was never his forte. A routine visit to do a follow up on young Nora Edwards changes Joel's life, and he did not consider it a good change. Being held at gunpoint and told he would marry Nora's mother, April, was not in Joel's plans. Young Sep did not care what Joel thought. With some unexpected help for April, Joel finds himself married, when he was determined to stay a bachelor.

April was not sad to be a widow. Harvey had been a cruel man and continued living quite an immoral life. When his brother Lou comes into her home with intentions of staying around, she is willing to do anything to stay safe. When her fourteen year old brother comes up with a plan, April don't see any other way...even if she don't like it. Thus the need to force Joel Larson into marriage. Quite a disagreeable young man but there were no other single men who happen to come into her home when she needed a husband.

As usual Ruth's stories are full of humor and love. I enjoyed seeing all the Larson's from the previous books and getting to know a few of them better. There is the danger side in the story as well. Lou is still on the loose, there is a locked bedroom that April will not let Joel in nor will she talk about it, Joel is not going to just give in and be a happily married man, and of course Tom is going to enjoy every minute he can if he thinks Joel is suffering.

**Sexual situations within marriage.
**This historical western romance is rated R.
