About Ruth Ann Nordin

I'm a stay-at-home mom of four school-aged boys and the proud wife of a veteran of the US Air Force. I live in a small Nebraska town where I am fortunate to spend my days creating new worlds with characters I fall in love with. I've written over thirty romances and have plans to write many more in the years to come.

I can't help but say it was not good. It started off well but got heavily boring.

I haven't giggled over a book in a long time. There were some very clever, funny scenes. And yet, there were some phrasing that threw me out of the book - the maid had been married until her husband died. Uh, really?

I wanted to smack the older sister the whole time, which I'm sure was the intent.

The hero was understandably wounded and hurt, but I didn't like him humiliating her in the stable. I just wanted to cry for her.

As it was a marriage of convenience, at least the 2.5 sex scenes - yes, .5 - were married sex. They felt out of place and were overly long. I skipped them.

I liked it, but I didn't love it.

Wonderful and full of genuine suspense. I was always holding my breath for something truly horrible to happen! I highly recommend it. And I do hope Lord Clement gets his own story, because he's just too lovable. =)

Enjoyed this book very much. I've become a huge fan of Regency Romance and this book was an excellent read!

I really loved this book! I've read some of Ruth Ann Nordin's western romances, but this was her first Regency, and it was a VERY entertaining read. I had trouble putting this one down. It was nicely paced throughout the story, not a dull moment anywhere. I can't wait for the next in the series to come out!

I'm a huge fan of RAN, I have almost all her books... Almost all because I don't like Sci-Fi so I don't have her series in that genre. But all the others? Are in my library and really well read. I'm always on the look-out for her releases and do not hesitate to grab a copy of them once they're out.

As always she delivered and left me waiting for the next book in the series. Pick a copy of this book up, trust me you won't regret it...

Two people at the same ball. Both are spouse hunting. Lord Roderick, The Earl of Weston needs a Lady Roderick to give him an heir. Seems his brother had the nerve to fall off his horse and die before getting the job done. Nathaniel is not anxious to be married but he's found a lady who will do, and he likes her father. But how easily the plans on one man can fall by the wayside when he tries to be a gentleman and stop someone from ruination.

Claire Lowell is in her first Season. Unlike her sister Lilly who loves all the hoopla, Claire ends up feeling closed in when she's in crowds. She found herself a gentleman tonight that she could see herself with, only he was called away suddenly. As she feels faint she heads to the veranda...if only she could have taken someone with her outside. An innocent escape for a breath of fresh air ends up with Claire married a week later, to a man who hates her and only sees her as someone who trapped him into marriage.

Can two people who don't want to be together and don't trust each other ever end up with a truce? And how can the truth be heard when Nate has turned a deaf ear to Claire's pleas?

Once again Ruth comes through with a great story with humor and adventure and characters with personalities that make them real. Some you want to hug while others could use a good slap. I am looking forward to other books she'll write in this period to see how the other characters can get their own happy endings.
