Married In Haste (Marriage by Fate: Book 2)
First draft is done! Now it’s with my awesome editing team!
For Miss Ava Baynes, it was love at first sight. For Brad Bachman, Earl of Youngtown, it was disaster at first dance…
As soon as Ava meets Brad, she knows he is perfect for her, but when she accidentally makes him trip in front of everyone at the ball, he vows to avoid her at all costs. Fate, however, has other plans for him. And in this case, fate takes the form of Brad’s younger brother who is out for revenge. His brother sets a trap that brings the two into a scandal they can’t escape. Now they must marry.
As much as Ava wants to marry Brad, she never wanted to do it against his will. Upon their wedding night, he runs out of her bedchamber, leaving her bed and her heart feeling empty. Her new husband doesn’t want anything to do with her, and she doesn’t know what she can do about it.
Unknown to her, Brad is attracted to her. He just has one big problem he can’t seem to overcome, no matter how hard he tries. He’s terrified of going to her bed. Perhaps if he had some experience, he might feel more confident, but he’s never even kissed a lady. Worse, he has to deal with a conniving brother who’s telling him that he’ll fail as a lover.
As the days pass in their marriage, things get more and more strained between them. At some point, something has to give. But can one of them break down the barrier between them before they lose their chance at a happily ever after?
Brad is the brother of Miss Loretta Bachman, and I introduce him in The Rake’s Vow. If you’d like to get a taste of who Brad is, you can find The Rake’s Vow here: https://booklaunch.io/ruthannnordin/therakesvow
The Rejected Groom (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 2)
Pre-order Coming Soon
Anthony (Tony) Larson and his twin brother, Mark, have been asked to marry one of the two unfortunate women who are in need of a husband. One woman is Velma Murdoch and the other is Natalie Harper.
Tony falls in love with Velma as soon as he meets her, and he’s excited when Mark tells him she’s chosen him to marry. What he doesn’t realize until he takes Velma home is that she thought she was marrying Mark. But Mark tricked both of them into marrying each other so he could be with Natalie. While he’s upset with Mark for deceiving him, he’s even more upset to find out Velma had wanted to marry Mark instead of him.
Velma is just as upset with Mark as Tony is. A marriage to Tony isn’t going to work out well at all. He’s a farmer who lives in a sod house, and she doesn’t know the first thing about housework or caring for animals. She was much more suited for Mark who owned a business. Just how are two people who are a bad match going to find common ground? She can’t cook anything right, she can’t milk a cow to save her life, and there’s no way she can mend clothes. She was brought up to help her future husband entertain guests at dinner parties, not help out on a farm.
Can a man who feels rejected and a woman who doesn’t feel competent on a farm find something as wonderful as love?

Make Believe Bride (Marriage by Fate: Book 3)
Lord Whitney is intelligent, rich, and good looking. But he’s also boring. Despite his notable attributes, he has nothing worthwhile to contribute to the gentlemen he would love to establish friendships with. One thing he’s noticed is that all the gentlemen around him are getting married. So in order to have something in common with them, he does something he never thought he’d do: he lies about being betrothed.
His ploy works. For the first time in his life, gentlemen are finally inviting him to dinner parties. Soon, however, they start asking him questions about the wonderful lady whose father is an exceptional investor. It comes to a point where he can no longer keep up the lie. He has to find a lady to fit the image of the one he created.
As fate would have it, Lady Stacey happens to be in the right place at the right time, and he manages to convince her to play along with his scheme. She does her best to pretend to be the lady he has made her out to be. Will their deception bloom into a love that is real, or will it be as make believe as it was when they met?

The Marriage Contract (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 1)
On her wedding day, Patricia Cotter, the widowed Lady of Pruett, signed a contract agreeing to the following:
1. She would never look at her husband’s face.
2. She would never remove the sheets covering the mirrors.
3. She would never ask her husband about his past.
In return for doing these things, she will have a secure place for her unborn child and her worries will be over. She has nothing to lose by agreeing to her husband’s terms.
Yes, she’s heard the rumors about Mr. Stephen Bachman. He was said to have killed his first wife, though there is no proof condemning him of the crime. He is aloof and never leaves his townhouse. He is practically a prisoner in his own home.
But as she gets to know him, she begins to believe her husband isn’t the beast everyone’s made him out to be. There just might be a gentleman worth loving beneath his hard exterior. The questions is, can she get him to let go of the past so he can open himself up to the possibility of a fairytale romance?

The Perfect Wife (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 3)
Pre-order Coming Soon
Mark Larson knows it’s wrong to trick another woman into marrying his twin brother so he can marry Natalie Harper, but he’s not the type to let something as insignificant as a moral dilemma stop him from getting what he wants. Natalie is perfect for him. And besides, his brother would rather marry the other woman. So what’s the harm in a little deception?
However, Natalie doesn’t see things that way. Though she is attracted to him, she doesn’t know if she can trust him. If he’s willing to deceive his own brother, then what kind of husband will he make? To make matters worse, Mark runs a business with his father, and she is expected to entertain the people he hopes to work with. She’s never done anything like host dinner parties and impress others. The other woman would have been a much better fit for him. So not only does she worry she can’t believe her new husband, but she’s sorely out of place in her new role as his wife.
Just how are the two supposed to have a happily ever after when they are so poorly matched?
