forced-into-marriage-ebook-cover7

After a drunken stupor, Brandon Herman wakes up in a strange bed with snippets of what happened the night before running through his mind. After he realizes the forced wedding ceremony wasn’t a dream, his first instinct is to sneak away and pretend the whole thing never happened. But before he can do it, he gets a good look at the young woman he just married.

Not only is she scared and alone, but she is ready to give birth. Like it or not, his course is set. He cannot, in all good conscience, leave her in this condition. Having gone through the heartache of a divorce, he does not think he has the capacity within him to love again. He can, however, devote himself to caring for his new wife and her child, and he can do this best if they start their lives in a new territory where they can put the shadows of the past behind them.

As they travel westward to their new home, he can’t help but notice his new wife’s gentle spirit as she cares for him and her child. Even so, he must not let himself become vulnerable again because the last thing he wants is to be hurt again.

Progress: uploaded and waiting for July 22

  1. I am so looking forward to reading your new books, I can hardly wait for you to finish with them. Thank you so much.

  2. I am waiting for “Wagon Trail Bride” more than the others. I have been dying to read Richard and Amanda’s story. I have read all the other “Larson” stories. When that one comes out, I will read it, then all the others in that series, again. I have read each of them twice already, but I do love your books. I will be buying each book, as they are available, as I do love your books, in general. When I get bored with other books, I go back and re-read an entire series of yours. I generally find that I actual don’t recall everything from the last time read, so I do get enjoyment re-reading your series.

    • I’m hoping to have “Wagon Trail Bride” out this year. Part of the hold up has been what Amanda has to go through in the book. It’s hard for me to hurt a character. Richard doesn’t hurt her. Someone else does. Richard is the one who steps in to rescue her. But I’ve really had to struggle with letting the story go in the direction it needs to. I’ve tried to come up with other scenarios that were better for her but none of them worked. I’m finally biting the bullet and letting the story develop as it needs to. The book has a happy ending, of course, and Richard will be good to Amanda. It’s just been hard getting through the bad to get to the good. I wish I could say more but I don’t want to spoil it. I will try to spend more time on it. I’d like to get the story completed. 😀

      Many thanks for the compliment. 😀 I’m very touched you keep reading my books. That means a lot to me.

  3. Love the Larson series and really waiting for His Convenient Wife 🙂

  4. Hi Ms. Nordin! I can’t get enough of Dave Larson and John Evans. I think I’ll seriously consider living in the prairie (and taking a bath only once a week, using cow chips when cooking, or yikes – even making do with an outhouse) if it means I get to be married with a man like them.

    P.S. This note is actually intended to coerce you into writing more books about them. I’ll happily read dozens of books that just feature Dave working on the farm, Mary cooking, and the two of them unwinding together. But if you’re too busy, I guess re-reading (for the third time — this month!) Eye of the Beholder and Loving Eliza is not too big a hardship. 😉

    • LOL I would love to go live in that time period. I know there’s a lot of comforts I’d have to give up, but I’d do it to be treated like heroines like Mary and Eliza.

      I’ve thought of doing a serial (like a TV mini-series or TV episodes) with Dave and Mary for shorter stories. I know some authors do stuff like TV Seasons and really make them long, but I would try to limit my series to 3-4 episodes and be done with it. I don’t like things to drag on forever. I have the beginning of an idea in my head but am not sure how I would proceed with it. That’s been the hold up on that idea.

  5. Linda Lever says:

    I am also anxiously awaiting Richard and Amanda’s story. I hope we hear more about Ma and Pa Larson in it as well. I reread the stories over and over and have delighted in reading some of the children’s stories ie Rachel, Issac and Emily. Please keep up the good works

    • I plan to get to Richard and Amanda’s story next year. I think I figured out why the first attempt at writing it didn’t work. I think I started it too early. I think what I need to do is start them out on the wagon trail instead of in New York. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t transition them from New York to the trail. Hopefully by starting the book later, it’ll dislodge that weird writer’s block. 😀

      I’m glad you like the Larsons! I do plan to have Harriett Larson’s book out later this year. That one is His Convenient Wife. Now, that one was just fine where it started. 😀 So I expect no problems there.

  6. Anonymous says:

    I love reading your books and so glad to finally read Richard and Amanda’s story. I am, however, wondering if you will continue with the Wild Hearts Series? Will you continue writing the Rancher’s Wife? Thank you!

    • I hope Richard and Amanda were worth the wait. 🙂 It was so hard to know what to do with those two. They were easy to work with once I knew what to do, but for the longest time, I had no idea where to go with the story.

      Unfortunately, I am so swamped with books, I don’t have the time to co-write another one, and Stephannie Beman wants to make it a 4 book series. I decided to let her take the rest of the series, so she’ll be writing The Rancher’s Wife and other books she has planned. She has some interesting twists and turns she has for that series. It’ll be fun to see where she takes things. 🙂 Here’s her site if you want to stay updated on the series or contact her about it: http://stephanniebeman.com

    Hi Ruth – I have always been an ardent Barbara Cartland reader and with that I’ve been hooked in Regency books. My problem is they are only releasing 3 books a month. I got tired of re-reading each book until the next 3 came out. So – I started looking around for another author to keep me happy in between the release of her books. What I found was another Regency author who writes books that I really love. In just a very short time I have read all of your Regency book series published to date. I absolutely LOVE the continuation of all the same characters with each book featuring a few characters to really get to know them. I am so happy I went looking for another authoress.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Cathi! Your comment means a lot to me. I wish I could convey how much this has touched me. And thank you for letting me know you enjoy the continuation I use in the series. I originally thought of dividing up the series with all different characters, but the whole thing with the book poor Lord Edon has to keep handing out and the drama at White’s between the gentlemen was too fun to give up. I plan to keep up with the continuation in the upcoming Regencies. I don’t think I’ll ever leave that particular world and the characters.

      Thank you, Cathi. Really, you’ve blessed me so much with your kind words. I wish I could adequately convey how touched I am. 🙂
