About Ruth Ann Nordin

Ruth Ann Nordin has written seventy 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 eighteen years to a sweet and funny guy, and they have four sons, who are all taller than Ruth now that they're 12, 13, 14, and 16. 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.

Her Counterfeit Husband by Ruth Ann Nordin
Anna, Duchess of Watkins has a problem. Her husband of six years is dying. Since he's cruel that might be good...only it could get worse. If he dies his brother, Lord Mason, will inherit the title and with the way he leers at her, it's hard to know which is the worst evil. Fortunately between her faithful butler, Appleton, and herself a plan is formed when her husband dies. And the plan gets even better when they happen to find her husband’s look alike and he has no memory but the one Anna and Appleton give him.

Jason Merrill, the Duke of Watkins. That is who he woke up believing he was. Not that he enjoyed any of his past indulgences such as drinking, gambling and women. He even has a great fear of the horse he once enjoyed riding. No, now he is softer and only enjoys being with his beautiful wife, Anna. But is he really who he believes he is? Or is he someone completely different who’s been tricked and if so, why?

Ruth's jump from the wild west to historical England has been quite a success. Her first book is The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife and she brings a few characters from that book into this one in passing but this story is mostly about Anna, ‘Jason’ and his brother, Mason. Once again we see how keeping the truth from someone you love always comes back to bite you in the arse!
