Email List

I decided to resurrect my email list to make it easier for people to be notified when I have a new book out. This is typically every other month.

Please Note: with homeschooling my youngest and other obligations, I don’t have time to write a special scene to go with a new release like I did in the past. So you will only get an email with the book’s cover, description, and links where you can find it.

You will only get an email when I have a new book out. I will NOT use your email for anything except sending out the new release.

The link below will take  you directly to MailChimp.


If you don’t want to sign up for the email list, you can get monthly updates on my Newsletter Blog:

    I love your Historical Romances.

    I love your books. I tend to skip sections in books that become to bog down with boring details but I don’t ever find it necessary to skip anything in your well written books.
    Thank you for providing me with your books which I don’t ever want to put down

    • One thing I hate as a reader are parts in a book that drags, so I am thrilled to hear you don’t skip anything in my books. This is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. Thank you!

    I enjoyed reading your book.

        I absolutely LOVE YOUR BOOKS! So far, I have only read “Her Heart’s Desire” , ” A Bride For Tom”, and The Eye of the Beholder”. I’m looking forward to reading more, but as a Senior on limited funds, I look forward to the free iBooks.

        • The nice thing about iBooks is that there are a ton of free books over there, and a lot of those are from authors who excel at what they do. You’ll never run out of reading material over there. 🙂

      Your books are perfect! I am always captivated and entertained without loosing my values! That is so important to me that all your characters have sex only after marriage and the leading men are as chaste as the women are expected to be! I just love that! So rare! But how it should be! Your uplifting and fun books are a refreshing oasis! Don’t ever stop writing!

      • Thank you so much, Jil! It’s always nice to know that someone else wants to read books where the characters wait until marriage to have sex and where the men aren’t all sexually experienced. Back in 2008, I got so fed up in not finding an author (besides Carolyn Davidson) who wrote these two main things in romances that I decided it was time to write the stuff I wanted to read. I never imagined anyone else wanted to read these types of books, too. It’s wonderful to come across someone like you. 😀

    Once i discovered your books Ruth i found myself purchasing more and more of them.
    I am a crime thriller reader usually but your books give me a good feeling and i usually read them from cover to cover in one go – yip takes around 4 hours but i just cant put it down till the end.
    Love it. Looking forward to your next one. 🙂

    • I can’t believe someone who reads crime thrillers would read my books. 😀 I know the two genres are dramatically different from one another. I’m very touched and blessed by your words. Thank you so much, Lisa, for being so sweet to tell me! 🙂

    I can’t wait to read what happens to Caitlyn and Chris!!!
    Did their baby come out OK? What did the doctor say? What did her Mother say? Can’t wait!! Thanks for writing.

    • Did you get a chance to read His Abducted Bride? I showed Chris and Caitlyn at the very end of the book with their baby. I did not, however, show a scene with the mother. I did have Caitlyn and her mother talk toward the end of Runaway Bride. If you haven’t read the rest of the series, let me know and I’ll link you to Wattpad. I have those over there if you want to read them. 🙂

    I’ve only just discovered your books but you have me captured in you wed,looking now to purchase some more of your books for my e reader. I only get to read at night when putting my grandson to bed and I’ve found that I can’t wait to put him down for the night now. I’m hoping to get to read all of your books. Someday I think it would be amazing to write my own books and be in the hearts of the many readers.Thank you for all the time, love and passion you put into your work.

    • Thank you so much. I’m very touched and honored by your kind words. If you were in front of me, I’d give you a hug. 😀

      I started writing because I loved reading, so I think you could definitely write your own books. People who are excited about reading seem to have the best story ideas. I think it’s the passion for reading to begin with that come into their stories. What I love most about reading books is that I get imagine myself as the heroine while anyone can be my hero. It’s fun to pretend. But I don’t do that with stories I write. For some reason, my characters are always separate and unique from it. It’s weird how that works, but it’s part of why I enjoy to read.

      If you ever do publish a book, please let me know.

    I LOVE your books! I am also very happy that I came across them where there are so many to read!! It sure makes for a good Winter…since I have to be indoors, having great books to look forward to sure makes the Coldest Season go by easier!
    Not that I don’t love your Historical Westerns, but if only you could write about Those Scottish Highlanders I so adore, I would love your books even more! 😉
    Thank you for using your gift of writing out there for all to enjoy! I’m just into the 2nd book (novella) of the Nebraska series after having read the Native America series and a few Stand Alones. Happy Writing!

    Peace, Love and Be Kind,
    Carmen aka SisterChick27

    • Thank you, Carmen! I wouldn’t be opposed to trying a Scottish Highlander book. It wouldn’t come out next year, but it might be fun to try one in a couple years. I’ve read a couple in the past and enjoyed them. I’d have to get familiar with the time period. But it would be a fun genre to try under romance. I enjoy writing a variety of books. It keeps me creative. Thanks for the idea!

      And thank you for taking time to contact me. 😀

    Hello, my name is Hadjou Bouchra . I am an English student from Algeria and I am a big fan of your work . I have chosen your book “Eye of The Beholder” to present as a homework would you please help me with some guidance . Thank you . Goodbye

  9. Carmen aka SisterChick27 says:

    Well, Ruth Ann, the Highlands is something to look forward to, although I truly do love your Western Series in various States!
    I was wondering, since I’ve been reading different State Series…is there a LIST of the Titles in each State? I mean, I read 9 of them in Nebraska and I noticed that you have cross referenced some of your characters. My problem is, that I really hate to read things out of context. That’s why I was wondering what the Order of each States Series is in. I sure you understand or you wouldn’t have gone through the trouble of doing all those little bits of trivia. LOL
    Right now I’m reading the 4th book ‘Romancing Adrienne’ in the Virginia Series. But I HAD to read ‘The Path To Christmas’ before I started it! 😉 Yes, you are a sly one but I love each and every reference!
    I also noted a reference about Eliza Sweet in the Nebraska Series, so I need to know if I should read the other 2 books (or are there more?) before I read anything else?
    So now you understand my dilemma, can you tell how to read each State?
    Love and Be Kind,
    Carmen SisterChick27

    • You have asked me an awesome question. I have to sit down and map it all out. Let go through all of my books and organize them all. I’ll comment in here when I’m done, which will probably be tomorrow. I’m about to get ready for bed. We get up early in my house. 🙂

      • I did the best I could with the list. I think it’s accurate, but if you notice any mistakes I made, please let me know.

        I also made this a blog post in case others had the same question, but I’m pasting this in the comment, too. 🙂

        Regencies: All of these books take place in the same world, but they are divided up across series to best categorize them. Here is the current chronological order of the books:

        The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife

        A Most Unsuitable Earl

        Her Counterfeit Husband (this is not part of the series because there is no interplay between the characters in this book and the others)

        His Reluctant Lady

        The Earl’s Secret Bargain (due to the wager exposed in His Reluctant Lady)

        Love Lessons With the Duke (due to the exposure of the wager)

        Ruined by the Earl (due to the exposure of the wager)

        The Earl’s Scandalous Wife

        The Earl’s Stolen Bride

        His Wicked Lady – editing

        Her Devilish Marquess – currently writing

        His Wallflower Bride – to be written

        more to come


        The Larson Family

        Wagon Trail Bride (Richard Larson’s book)

        Her Heart’s Desire (Sally Larson’s book)

        A Bride for Tom (Tom Larson’s book) – in the process of adding the wedding night so don’t read it yet

        A Husband for Margaret (friend of the family)

        Eye of the Beholder (Dave Larson’s book)

        The Wrong Husband (Jenny Larson’s book)

        Shotgun Groom (Joel Larson’s book)

        To Have and To Hold (second Dave Larson book)

        His Redeeming Bride (Neil Craftsman’s book)

        Loving Eliza (Eliza was in His Redeeming Bride)

        Isaac’s Decision (Isaac Larson’s book; ends feud between Dave and Neil)

        Boaz’s Wager (features Eva Connealy who was interested in Isaac in Isaac’s Decision; also has Rachel Larson)

        Off to the side:

        Falling In Love With Her Husband (this does not directly involve the Larson’s, but it has Kent Ashton who later gets woven into the Larson family)

        —————Another side note: Ann and Todd Brothers show up briefly toward the end of Brave Beginnings

        —————Also, Jake Mitchell from An Inconvenient Marriage overhears Kent talking to Rebecca in Falling In Love With Her Husband and talks to Ann’s father about the matter

        Kent Ashton’s Backstory (shows his side of things in Falling In Love With Her Husband)

        Back to the Larsons

        Catching Kent (Rose Larson’s book where Kent is the hero)

        His Convenient Wife (Harriett Larson and Stan Craftsman’s book)

        —————-Another side note: Jeremy Graham from Bride of Second Chances talks to Dave Larson and his son, Jacob Larson who owns the mercantile by this time, for a brief moment in the story


        The Native American Series

        Meant to Be – minor characters, Cole and Penelope, play a role, and they become more prominent in the Native American Series

        Restoring Hope (Woape’s book; Woape befriends Penelope while she’s on the run)

        A Chance In Time – I go more into depth on Cole and Penelope’s relationship and show another angle to the friendship Penelope and Woape shared

        Brave Beginnings (Julia and Chogan’s book)

        ———–During Brave Beginnings, Julia and Chogan meet Ann and Todd Brothers from Falling In Love With Her Husband

        Bound by Honor Bound by Love (Citlali and Onawa’s book; Penelope and Cole come back)

  10. Dixie says:

    I just finished reading Eye of the Beholder. Awesome book. First time ever reading your book I WANT EVERY ONE of them. Thank you for sharing your talent

    • Thank you, Dixie! I appreciate that so much. You’ve really made my day! Eye of the Beholder was the book that got me hooked on writing romance, esp. the historical westerns. 🙂 I had written a couple of romances, but Eye of the Beholder had something about it that spawned more books (mainly the ones with Dave’s brothers and sisters). From there, I got more ideas for romance. I had started out writing some fantasy and thrillers. Romance was supposed to be a temporary diversion. As it turned out, it became my main focus. 🙂 I love writing romance more than any other genre.

    Ruth Ann I love your mail order bride books. In fact I cannot fault any of them and I look forward to the next book in the series with Abe, Travis and the rest. I have almost all of your books on kindle. Thanks.

  12. Sarah Hanni says:

    I love your books, Eliza’s story is probably one of my favorites and Dave’s too, but I was fascinated by the wagon train story of Richard and Amanda!! So glad I stumbled upon your books years ago, they’ve been a wonderful ride!!! Thank you!!

    • Thank you, Sarah! I love hearing what books people enjoyed most. It helps me know what I’m doing right. 😀

      I especially appreciate the fact that you took the time to leave such a wonderful comment. Thank you again!

    Hi Ruth,
    I love all of your books, including “Return of the Aliens”, that you do not list any more. I have all of your books. I get them as soon as they come out. I do not always read them right away because I like to read the entire series together. I also like to read a variety of books. I like crime thrillers, para-normals, shape-shifters, science fiction, and romances. I have a very difficult time putting your books down. and I am always thrilled when another one comes out. I would also love to see a Scottish Highlander book. Thank you for all of your great books!!

    • “Return of the Aliens” is pretty much tucked away into past books I’ve done. I enjoyed writing that book. It was fun to try something different, and I’m glad you enjoyed it! Like you, I love reading a variety of books. For some reason, mystery is the one genre I can’t seem to get into. Ironically, it was the genre my parents loved. 🙂

      I definitely want to write a Scottish Highlander book. I even got a book on Scottish history. I just don’t know when I can get around to writing it.

      Did you recently sign up to be on my email list? The name of the person was Gail, but I’m not sure if it was you or another Gail. I think it was you, but I want to be sure. When I put the email into the MailChimp program I use to send emails when I have a new book out, it said that the email was already in the system. I’m wondering if you have been getting my new release emails or not. If not (and if you signed up for them), I want to see if I can rectify the situation. If it’s not you, then feel free to disregard my question. 🙂

    I have just finished reading the Accidental Mail Order Bride and have enjoyed this series as well as your other series that I have read. I feel the need to express extra praise on your job here for confronting prejudices and the effects of those on the receiving end of them. You have done an excellent job of this as well as giving a well told tale. Bravo!! Keep up the great work as I am anxiously awaiting the next book in two of your current series. I also love the Nebraska series, especially Mary and Dave. Thanks for the enjoyment reading your books has brought me.😆

    • Thank you! I really appreciate that because I knew I was hitting some tough issues, and I wanted to be sensitive to them while not shoving them under the rug as if they don’t exist. Your comment is a huge relief to me. 😀

      Also, thank you for the compliments on the other books. Dave and Mary were the ones who got me hooked on historical western romances. Now I can’t go without writing at least on historical western romance series at a time.

  17. Carol says:

    Hi! Just to say that I absolutely LOVE your books! They just make me happy everytime I finish one : – ) I have almost all of them. And the historical western are my favorites. Dave Larson also, of course : – ) . Please keep writing about the family! And others too, not just the regency ones! Bye

    • Thank you, Carol! Of all the heroes I’ve ever done, Dave is still the most popular, which is awesome because Eye of the Beholder was the book that got me hooked on historical western romances. I don’t have any plans to stop writing them. It might be a while before I touch another contemporary since my heart is mostly in historical romances.

      When I finish Groom For Hire, I plan to start on Sep’s story. (I can’t remember if I gave him a last name. He was April’s younger brother in Shotgun Groom, but her name was Edwards, which was her married name. I need to go back and see if I ever called Sep with a last name.) But anyway, he’ll be the hero in that one. Then I want to bring in Richard and Amanda’s twin sons since they’re close to Sep’s age. That should work for one series. And I do want to finally get to Vivian and Hugh’s story since people keep asking about that one. I’ll have to see if any of the Larsons match up to their age group so I can include them. I would like to work on both series for late this year through next. I have lots of plans for more historical westerns. 🙂

    Thank you so much for this offer, I have read some of your books and enjoyed them very much. However I went through a rough patch w my health and could no longer read or understand what I read. After having surgery to correct the cause of my pain, I am no longer in pain Meds and I am reading and enjoying audible books again and your books were the first I ordered. I look forward to hearing from you.

  21. I love love love your books. I look for any new releases and then I cannot put the book down until I have of finished..And i have re-read all the books by you several times I neverbecome bored… thank you for being such a great author.

    • Thank you, Joanna! What a sweet thing for you to say. 🙂 It especially means a lot to me that you reread the books. I can’t think of a higher compliment than that. Thank you so much!!

  22. Glenna Manes Wheat says:

    I absolutely will be in your new list. I have enjoyed your series of books so much I even have sent you an email complimenting your writing.

    • I hope the process of signing up again went smoothly. A couple of people told me they were able to do it without any problems, so it looks like I got it figured out.

      Thanks for the compliment! 🙂

  23. Evelyn Washington says:

    Love your books 📚 I travel in time every time I read them. Sometimes my only way to get away 😊

  24. Frances Pulis says:

    got hooked on one off the free book, Her Hearts Desire then read all the others in the series just love then. Hoping I have them all thank you very much for writing great books.

    • Thanks, Frances. 🙂 Are you referring to all of the Larson family books, or just the Nebraska Series? If you wish to know, I can tell you which books feature a Larson character.

  25. Toni says:

    I would like to know when u have new books coming out, especially the Wyoming series😀😀

    • I’m glad to hear it. 😀

      There are a couple of ways you can do this.

      You can sign up for the Email List. The link is above to sign up to it. The process gets a bit complicated since the EU law was passed saying that people (like me) need to be double sure someone wants to receive emails. Because of that, there’s a couple of steps you need to go through at Mailchimp in order for them to know I’m not spamming you. I never spam because I hate it, but since some authors have, we all have to go through this process. I know it’s a pain.

      If you would like to get emails once a month that let you know what I’m working on and when something new is published, I have a monthly newsletter blog at There’s a “Follow” option on the right side at the top (right under the header) where you can put your email address in. Then when I make a new post, WordPress will send you the post directly to your inbox.

      I also make the announcements on this blog if you put your email in the “Follow” the blog option, but I make a lot of other posts over here, too. I do about one to two posts a week. I’m not sure if you want that many emails. Personally, I think the newsletter blog or email list are the best options.

      If you have any questions, feel free to ask. But to quickly address the Wyoming Series, The Outlaw’s Bride is already out. It’s free everywhere but Amazon. I have been unable to get Amazon to price match it. The Rancher’s Bride will be due out June 27. I don’t have a release date for The Fugitive’s Bride yet. It all depends on when the book is finished, and I’m about halfway through it right now.

  26. Bernita says:

    I recently just read your updates and saw the marriage by fairy tales series is complete. I was hoping that Lord Tumbledore would come back with his own story. 😊 I loved the series!

    • I have to warn you that I never did write about Lord Tumbledore. The series never went in that direction even though I originally thought it would. Sorry to break the bad news.

  27. Tammy Turner says:

    Will there be a book for Jeremiah from the Wyoming series?

  28. dm3020 says:

    I read your book The Convenient Mail Order Bride (Chance at love series) and immediately fell in love with your writing! After I finished it, I bought the whole box set. I adore these type of stories and I am so looking for to reading more of your work.

    • Thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed The Convenient Mail Order Bride and went on to get the boxed set. That means a lot to me! 😀 I hope the rest of the series lives up to the first book.

  29. Fantas says:

    Hi Nordin. I am a huge fan of your works, starting reading a book called “11 Tips for New Writers” as I am a newbie of writing and have only a few followers on my wattpad account. I learned so much from you and got amount of confident and techiques of writing. In fact, I am not an English – A Burmese. I wanna share the ideas you gave me to the very first start-writers of my enviroment. Can I translate your work: 11 Tips for New Writers to Burmese for non-profit fan translation on my wattpad. I deeply respect you- Can you accept my offer? please

    • Hi Fantas. 😀

      You may translate any of my books into Burmese. All I ask is that you credit me as the author. So as long as you have something like, “Written by Ruth Ann Nordin” and then credit yourself for translating, I’m very happy with the arrangement.

      Thank you for asking. That’s very thoughtful. I appreciate that a lot.

      Good luck with your writing!
