Rick Johnson wants to court Ethel Mae Jordan. Ethel Mae Jordan does not want to be courted by Rick Johnson so she has her friend, Sally Larson, over when Rick comes calling in hopes that she will want him. Sally immediately sees that she would love to be courted and even marry the handsome Judge Johnson...only if he could see her past Ethel Mae. But Sally's a clever girl and sets out to win her man...Her Heart's Desire. After reading the previous books in this series and have this book come out as the first one, had me wondering how it would be. It was great. Starting in the past while knowing what the future held for these characters was quite enjoyable. A seventeen-year-old Tom, fourteen-year-old Dave, twelve-year-old Jenny and a nine-year-old Joel...who was the naughty and mischievous youngster we first met in A Bride For Tom. We finally get a good look at Richard and Amanda as well. Vivian Jordan, who not only ended up playing a part in Sally's plan but the poor ten year old had to constantly dodge Hugh, the neighbor boy. If you have not had the opportunity to read any of this series yet...here's where you start. If you go to Ruth's website you will find the order of her books and where to get them as well. A Bride for Tom and A Husband for Margaret are the next two books and they are both free. You will find she writes with humor, romance and lots of good food and family. **Sexual situations within marriage.

I started out with A Bride For Tom and A Husband For Margaret and,quickly became a fan. I have read all her books now and,patiently await the ones to come(ok maybe not always patiently lol!) Thank you Ruth for another book i couldn't put down. You also have introduced me to the wonderful world of the indie writers. Thanks again!

Sweet read. Sex in marriage situations read almost like a play by play. Kind of weird because the rest of the story didn't flow the same way. It still was an entertaining read on how she got her man. 517 pages

Ruth Ann Nordin has once again created funny, memorable characters, witty dialogue and laugh out loud situations. This latest enstallment of her Nebraska series has been much anticipated and well worth the wait. Thank you Ruth Ann for another great book.

He's not romantic or clever. Blah. Lost interest when thr whole thing just ended suddenly and went to another issue. His parents don't like her? I don't care, I wouldve liked to see more thought behind him marrying her.

This book was boring to me. I couldnt finish it. What this book consists of as far as i read was a woman trying to manipulate a man in to marrying her instead of her friend. Just boring.

VERY CUTE LOVE STORY.

Great story and very well told. It moves and draws you into the story line which is a good thing. There is just the right amount of romance (not really mushy) being planned by two young women who are still young enough to try a ridiculous yet interesting plan. This is a must read.

I absolutely love, love, love this author's books!! They're romantic novels that will have you flipping pages as fast as you can! This one really amused me because of the way Sally tries to get Rick to fall in love with her. Definitely recommend this book, and others by this author. :)

Her Heart's Desire By Ruth Ann Nordin This was such a fun read.  Witty characters, easy-going plot and sweet romance.   Great one to grab a blanket, a cup of coffee and  relax in your favorite chair as you have a can't put the book down afternoon.  No it doesn't have complicated plot and much is predictable but Nordinn weaves her storytelling in such a way you just enjoy the relaxed tone. I loved how she developed so many of the characters.  I felt I was sitting on the porch of  farmhouse and could envision not only the characters but the surroundings.  Nordin paints a picture with her pen taking us along with her on this ride.There were a couple spots I felt some changes could have been changed.  Discussing these would cause me to be a spoiler.  No way.** This contain explicit sexual material within marriage.

Would rather the sex scenes been left lessdetailed and did not care for the kidnapping bit but otherwise good read.
