Overview

"Do I look like one of your smooth-faced golden boys? I don't think so."

Hard-boiled, cynical police detective Thaddeus Law had a mission: nab the sorry son-of-a-gun out to kill famous billionaire Joe Colton. This assignment would have been open and shut if he hadn't been so damned distracted. Used to chasing criminals and taking on corruption, Thaddeus found investigating the Colton case oddly like a country club golf outing--complete with Joe's eager-to-please niece-cum-personal-assistant fumbling his strokes. Young, smart and beautiful, heiress Heather McGrath was wasting her suggestive glances on him, big time. He'd been down that road before.... The only princess in Thad's life would be his two-year-old daughter. So why was his lawman's gut telling him otherwise?

Meet the Author



A high school honors student who wrote for the school paper and was editor of the yearbook, Ruth was awarded a full scholarship to college, where she hoped to pursue an English degree.

Her plans were changed, however, because of financial conditions, and she joined the workforce, becoming a secretary to the vice president of a large corporation.

Ruth Ryan Langan married her childhood sweetheart, Tom, and together they have raised five children. Avid travelers and sports enthusiasts, Ruth and her family enjoy bowling, golfing, skiing, and swimming. Along with her husband, Ruth jogs several miles each day (to get away from the word processor).

Ruth's writing career began when she gave a very special birthday present to herself. Her gift was an hour a day to pursue her writing. Soon she was a published novelist.

She says of her career, "The greatest reward for a writer is having someone say 'I loved your book.' These simple words make all the hours of writing worthwhile."

Ruth is cofounder and past treasurer of the Greater Detroit Chapter of Romance Writers of America, as well as a charter member of the national organization of Romance Writers of America, the Detroit Women Writers, Novelists, Inc., and Sisters in Crime.

In addition, Ruth has coscripted with Marianne Willman and Jan Greenberg, four original screenplays, one of which, Pendulum, is contemporary, and three of which are historical in nature. Ruth has also completed a children's book, which features illustrations by her daughter-in-law Patty Langan.
