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.

About the Series: Virginia Series
This is mostly a romantic comedy series, thought The Cold Wife is on a serious note. Happy endings, though, are a guarantee.

This book was so much fun to read and even though it took me a while to start(as I had other books to read) I could not put it down once I started.
Sue and Jake were something else and the fun of their friendship and trips was contagious. GR8 read

I am so very glad that I listened to a recommendation about this book as it didn't disappoint!! There is so much humour in this book. I loved the alternating male and female P.O.V.

I have to read the other books centering around this group of people. I'm now hooked on Ruth Ann Nordin :-) She has single handedly brought me back into the romance(with no paranormal in sight)genre!!

I enjoy reading books by Ruth Ann Nordin. She has a great sense of humor and an easy writing style. I've read the other reviews and they covered it beautifully. I was looking for a certain romance style, and I really found it in Ruth's books. I've read them all, and I'm waiting, impatiently, for more!

I enjoy all of Ruth's books. I read this as the historical but Ruth has just rewrote it as a contemporary book.

Sue Lewis comes into the bank each day and nags them to help her family save their farm instead of having it repossessed. Jake Mitchell, a wealthy bachelor, is being driven nuts by this nagging woman. Although he does want to help her but the son of the banker would rather get the property and make more money.

Jake wants to start his own bank as he knows when George takes over the bank after his father, Conrad, retires it won't be a good thing.

Jake's dad left his mom and him when he was 10. After his mothers death Jake gained much wealth. Now he is told that his father has died and left even more money but Jake must marry and stay married for 6 months before receiving the money.

He decides that he can marry Sue and give her the money to pay off the debt for the family farm. The marry as a convenience only and plan on an annulment on May 21st, six months later.

Jake finds out there is much more to Sue then the nagging woman he first assumed her to be.
