I've always loved RA Nordin's writing. This story was kinda too short for my liking, but still was enjoyable without too many complicated and twisted story line.

Finished this in one siting.

Perseverance (along with a little deception) finally pays off

Patty has been in love with Greg forever, and everyone knows it. Unfortunately, Greg's determination to avoid the marriage trap is also well-known in Lewistown. So what's a girl to do? Over the years, she's tried everything, but she refuses to give up, so Patty sets a trap, with the help of the town's most unsavory character. Poor Patty. She thought she'd finally gotten her heart's desire only to find out that her "catch" still has a l
Forced weddings, square dances, and rattlesnakes

Those are just a few of the things in this story, which takes place in central Montana.
Patty - of - title is a young ranch woman, living with her father on the same ranch she grew up on, still loving the boy next door - or as it happens in that sort of country, the boy next ranch. Grown up into the rancher, since his father has passed on, and left him the ranch.
But the man has, for some unknown reason, decided that he is not going to fall into any
Patty’s Gamble by Ruth Ann Nordin
Montana Series Book Three
Patty Dixon is sure that Greg Wilson cares for her. So she sets up a trap to get him to marry her. And it works...sort of. Just because she is his wife in name,
it doesn’t mean he’s going to give her a real marriage. Patty gets ready to hang on for the ride of her life because she is going to win her husband’s heart.

Greg Wilson realizes all the things he could have done differently to get out of this marriage. A marriage he’s pretty sure

Another outstanding book from Ruth Ann Nordin!
This novella about a girl being forced to marry an outlaw has her "pa" force a local ranch owner to marry her by gunpoint.
The story was described as a romantic comdedy. But it is neither romantic or comedic.

After 2 days of the Patty trying everything and anything (including washing clothes in the nude) to convince Greg not to get an annulment, Greg decides he loves her.
The only thing sillier than this is the non-believable sex scene at the end. The story would have been better without it.
The story was okay for a novella but don't understand why the author classified the book as romantic comedy. One of my least favourite stories of this author, but the concept of this series is interesting and will read the next book .
Happening same time as Boaz's Wager. Gets everything about Patty and Greg cleared up but I just didn't love this one but can't put my finger on the exact problem. Disguises, snake shooting and scheming!

Another great one by Ruth Ann Nordin! Love her stories & enjoyed seeing how Patty got her man :-)

Looking forward to the next book in this series.
This wasn't a bad story, but I don't know if I would call it a comedy. Most of the heroine's actions seemed desperate more than humorous.
I like the author's other works, (Eye of the Beholder is superb!) but this one didn't work for me, sadly.
Cute and predictable but a nice interlude if you have an hour or two to spare.
Romantic Comedy, no. It was an ok read though. Seemed rushed
This was a good book - I just wish is was longer.
Cute story. Very short and quick to read.
Another great by Ruth Ann Nordin!!
