About the Author

Ruth Ann Nordin has written seventy romances, ranging from Regencies to historical westerns to contemporaries. She plays with other genres from time to time, but her first love is romance. She has been happily married for eighteen years to a sweet and funny guy, and they have four sons, who are all taller than Ruth now that they're 12, 13, 14, and 16. The good thing is she doesn't need a ladder, and there's always someone to take care of a mouse that squeezes its way into her Montana home. She considers herself very lucky to have led such a charmed life. Being able to play with characters and create stories is just icing on the cake. Hopefully, she'll get to keep doing this many years to come.

One of the worse books I have read in a while. It seemed to take place in the present at times and other times seemed like it took place in the 50's or 60's. I only finished it because it was an easy read.

I should have read the reviews. This takes place in 2005 but seems like 1905, I kept checking the date because I couldn't believe it would be present day. It's written so formally and what I mean is the language between the characters is so out of date, you think your reading an old romance story one hundred years back. I won't be reading any other books by this author.

THis is not my usual typed of book being a mystery reader, but I loved this book. It was well written and moved along at a good pace with the characters being well developed and the dialogue sounded believable.

Chapter one starts with "August 2005". Don't bother reading more, that's the best there is. In 2005 2 virgins, arranged marriage, everyone is immature. Men in finance and investment taken for a ride that is not only irritatingly idiotic but excuse me, not even in the realm of lawful possibility. All within the timespan of a few weeks. Reviews are right. It seems like you are reading from the 50's. for 1/3rd the cost buy Maid for The Billionaire by Ruth Cardello. Rookie novelist with a good start.

I found this story plot too sad to finish. A modern women getting married to please others and for money. When I bought it I though it was set 100 years ago based on the description. The use of God in the story was also sad to me. It was like the author was using religion to justify someone in 2007, marrying someone she does not even know because her father arranged it. I wish I did not buy this story. If you like books where a woman thinks for herself, do not buy this book.

Carrie Allen¿s father tells her that his business has gone bankrupt. Before Carrie can recover from the shock, her father also informs Carrie that he has arranged for her to be married to Justin Monroe. The wedding is in three days. Carrie can¿t believe this is happening to her. Justin may be wealthy but Carrie fells nothing but dislike for Justin. Soon after Carrie becomes Mrs. Justin Monroe, she demands an annulment. Carrie believes that Justin only married Carrie to make him look good to his clients. Justin knows this isn¿t true but he needs to convince Carrie of this fact. So Justin proposes a deal. He explains to Carrie that after a month if she still wants to leave then he will give her the annulment. In addition Justin won¿t consummate the marriage in order to protect Carrie¿s reputation. Carrie agrees to the deal. Besides how hard can it be to live with a man she hates for one month?I felt bad for Justin having to live with Carrie but at the same time I was impressed with him. Justin tried everything he could to make Carrie feel his love for her but in a respected way. Carrie really wasn¿t all that bad. I could understand where Carrie was coming from as I would have felt defensive about the whole situation as well. Even though the circumstances between Carrie and Justin were sad, it was funny to read how these two coped with each other. The things they would say or do at times would make me laugh and smile. After reading An Unlikely Place to Love and now The Cold Wife; Mrs. Nordin is two for two in my book of great reads as well as a wonderful author. So if you are looking for a new author to try then give Ruth Nordin¿s books a chance.
