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.

This book was a "I can't put this book down" kinda read!! The only thing I didn't understand about this book was why it was not written in modern/current times. The story didn't really "fit in" to the 1880's! There was nothing in the book to remind you that was the time period they were in. But really a good story line and you couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next! End of the book left you wanting to "hear" more from these characters! Totally enjoyed!!

Kate Tanner goes into hiding after she witnesses her parents¿ murder. The people responsible for killing Kate¿s parents want to silence her. So in order for Kate to survive she comes up with a plan to pass herself off as a man. Kate finds herself on Chad Walker¿s farm in North Dakota as Chad¿s new farm hand. Kate is now known as Billy Ingram. Kate thinks she has found the perfect place to hide. Chad can¿t figure it out but there seems to be something odd about Billy. Ever since Chad¿s wife, Georgia passed away he has had nothing but problems with Georgia¿s family. Georgia¿s brothers like Billy a lot in fact they want to hook Billy up with their other sister Lacy. Kate though has her heart set on Chad instead. As time goes by, Kate is finding it harder and harder to play Billy, especially when Kate¿s secret is almost revealed. Plus Kate¿s parents¿ killers are drawing near. Will Kate be able to defend herself or will she have to tell Chad her secret?Kate Tanner as Billy Ingram was so much fun to read about. She got to experience what guys really do and talk about when it¿s just them. It was funny when Kate as Billy had to find a way to get Lacy uninterested in her. Chad Walker is tall, dark, and handsome. What woman could go wrong wanting to get with Chad? You couldn¿t unless you are Kate and you are suppose to be a guy. Boy some ladies have all the rotten luck. When I first discovered Ruth Nordin and her books, I was like this is someone whose books I bet I would enjoy a lot. Well I can tell you I was right! An Unlikely Place for Love: The Disguises of Kate Tanner was so enjoyable. The thing that struck me the most about this book was the cover with those big blue piercing eyes. Ok, so to recap an eye catching book cover as well as a pleasurable read. You can¿t go wrong with An Unlikely Place for Love: The Disguises of Kate Tanner by Ruth Nordin.

I haven't read a lot of Christian fiction. That said, I really enjoyed this book. When Kate Tanner witnessed the brutal murder of her parents and realizes the criminals saw her as well, her only option is to run. She gets on a train without looking back and ends up in North Dakota, disquised as a man name Billy Ingram. She finds work on a farm quite a distant from town and that is where her problems really start. The owner of the farm, Chad Walker, has his hands full with his dead wife's family who don't 'work but expect pay and who don't see the deceased Georgia as anything but a saint, Which she definitely was not. The trials and friendships created will last forever, but what happens when Kate (aka Billy) falls in love with her boss? Humerous and a good plot besides....

This is a very good book. Although it does drag some in the middle, the beginning, and especially the end, more than make up for it.

I usually like this author's books and give 4 or 5 star rating but this was too long and a little on the boring side. I did like the characters and the story line but it just dragged on too long with nothing happening. I kept thinking, for pete sakes, lets get on with it. Also a little too much on the preachy side unlike her other books I've read. I will continue reading her books because most of them are very good reading. JudyE

It was a little "out there" in believability but I loved the humor and the characters! I found I wanted to continue reading instead of watching TV and that says a lot!
