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 had to create an account just to write a review for this book. It was so cute.
The characters were well rounded and really felt like settlers. The innocent excitement displayed was endearing. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
Especially if the first one is so good and they will only get better. Also as I was surfing other books from her I seen tutorials and testimonials of her experiences. Guiding others to learn from her bad experiences with publishing and plagiarism. Thank you.
I will certainly purchase other titles from you and recommend you at every opportunity.

Sally has plans, big plans that include a life with Rick Johnson. Now she just has to get Rick to focus on her and not her best friend. The two put their heads together and start scheming. The fun ends with Rick turning the tables.

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, especially books that relate to the Larsons.

I had always wondered about Sally's story and wondered why RAN hadn't started the series with the eldest of the Larson siblings but I guess Tom was just to cute and inspirational to pass over for Sally and/or Richard. As always RAN delivered and left me waiting for the next book in the series, the eldest Larson sibling, Richard's story. Pick a copy of this book up, trust me you won't regret it...

Rick Johnson wants to court Ethel Mae Jordan. Ethel Mae Jordan does not want to be courted by Rick Johnson so she has her friend, Sally Larson, over when Rick comes calling in hopes that she will want him. Sally immediately sees that she would love to be courted and even marry the handsome Judge Johnson...only if he could see her past Ethel Mae. But Sally's a clever girl and sets out to win her man...Her Heart's Desire.

After reading the previous books in this series and have this book come out as the first one, had me wondering how it would be. It was great. Starting in the past while knowing what the future held for these characters was quite enjoyable. A seventeen-year-old Tom, fourteen-year-old Dave, twelve-year-old Jenny and a nine-year-old Joel...who was the naughty and mischievous youngster we first met in A Bride For Tom. We finally get a good look at Richard and Amanda as well. Vivian Jordan, who not only ended up playing a part in Sally's plan but the poor ten year old had to constantly dodge Hugh, the neighbor boy. If you have not had the opportunity to read any of this series yet...here's where you start. If you go to Ruth's website you will find the order of her books and where to get them as well. A Bride for Tom and A Husband for Margaret are the next two books and they are both free. You will find she writes with humor, romance and lots of good food and family.
