Barnes and Noble:


I had some trouble sending out this information to people on my email list (it’s a long story but I think I got it resolved).  If anyone did not get an email announcing that Runaway Bride is up, please let me know.

Now for the Giveaway!

I am way behind in announcing this, so forgive me.  It’s been one of those weeks where everything is happening at the same time.

Naida over at …the bookworm… has graciously allowed me to do a guest post on her blog (Here’s the blog post. ) where I discuss why I love romance novels.  Naida took a chance on me a couple years back when I was just starting out.  I had asked her if she’d read and review one or two of my earlier books (it’s been so long ago I don’t remember if it was just An Inconvenient Marriage, but I know she read that one and that was my second romance novel).  Anyway, she’s a really sweet person, so I suggest checking out her blog if you have the time.

As for the giveaway, I have information about it at the bottom of my guest post on …the bookworm… but will restate the information over here.

Giveaway information:

I’d like to offer three paperbacks and three ebooks.  The total will be six winners.  Winners 1, 2, and 3 will get one signed paperback of their choice.  Winners 4, 5, and 6 will get one ebook of their choice.  (The ebooks will be gifted from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Smashwords.)   I’ll also announce the winners on this blog on the 15th.

How to enter:

You can enter over there on Naida’s blog in the comments section or here using my form.  Either way will get you into the giveaway.

Below is the form if you prefer to enter this way:

    Thanks so much for a chance to win one of your books Ruth 🙂 Congrats on finishing Runaway Bride !

    • Thanks. 😀 I don’t know if you ever get overwhelmed when you start a book, but there’s a part of me that wonders if I’ll be able to finish it because I worry that I’ll lose ideas somewhere in the middle. I think it’s because that’s where I start to want to write something else and have force myself to stick with it. LOL

  2. Reblogged this on Legends of Windemere and commented:

    Just purchased your Book 2 of Across the Stars Series, Runaway Bride. When it comes out in paperback, let me know, so I can purchase a copy of that as well. My “Ruth Ann Nordin” Bookcase Shelf keeps pleasantly growing 🙂

  4. Ruth, I just opened Runaway Bride after waiting all day for the opportunity to FINALLY be able to read the book I’ve been waiting sooooo long for. Now I’m trying not to cry. I can’t believe you dedicated the book to me! I’ve love every single book I’ve ever read of yours but this….it’s too incredible to believe. My husband swears that if I can get your address, he’s sending you a box of chocolate marshmallow cookies for you and your family. In the mean time, if you’d like, I can send you the actual recipe. This will forever be a moment to cherish for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    PS My husband wants a paperback when they come available.

    • I was hoping to gift you the ebook, but sending the paperback when I make it will be even better. 😀 I take it you didn’t get my comment on a different post I wrote a while back. It was about a month or so ago, so I wasn’t sure if you’d see it or not. I’m glad you commented here. I couldn’t leave the chocolate marshmallow cookies out the book because I kept thinking of you and your husband as I wrote it. Then I had to dedicate it to you both. 😀 I’m glad you saw the dedication.

      Can I email you at the email address you use to sign into WordPress about where to send the paperback and getting that recipe? The cookies sound pretty good. 😀

  5. Of course you can! Email me any time. No I didn’t see the previous posting. Where was it posted? When I opened my book yesterday, after waiting for hours so I could finally read it, I was soooo excited. When I hit the dedication page an honestly almost fell out of my chair. My husband is dead serious about sending you the cookies. If you want to email me an address they’ll be headed your way. The man is an awesome baker, which is why I’m not a size 6. If you’d like the recipe to post on your blog for your readers to enjoy, I’d be happy to send it to you as well. I would LOVE a paperback, signed by you of course. It would be a cherished gift. By the way, I finished the book this morning and I LOVED IT. (sigh) I know that Sandy’s story will be a while yet, but I’m so looking forward to reading it as well. When you were talking about writing her book I always imagined Sandy being invited to go along with Chris, Caitlyn, Mark, Lexi and their children to Pandoran and being inundated with men. I can just see her being overwhelmed by all the attention and longing looks. Lol.

    • I’ll email you later tonight. 😀 I replied in the comments section in an older post. It was the one where I gave a scene from Runaway Bride. I don’t even remember how old the post was, but I remembered you had commented under it and wasn’t sure how else to get in touch with you.

      You know, I’ll take your husband up on the offer. I wouldn’t mind some cookies. 😀 You’re so lucky he loves to cook. I wish mine did because my talent in the kitchen is limited to “as simple as possible”. I’ve had a couple of kitchen fires in my time.

      Sandy went through early menopause, so she can’t have children and the men on Pandoran would want children. I haven’t covered a heroine who had early menopause yet and wanted to do it in this book since it was contemporary. I can’t really address the issue in a historical as easily. I have thought about having a group of women agree to go to Pandoran or be taken to Pandoran to find husbands. I haven’t gotten beyond the thinking stage of that idea.

      I’ll email you later today, probably sometime tonight.

  6. Just finished reading Runaway Bride! Loved it!
