Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble

Book Number One in the Under Texas Stars series

About The Book:
A love like Lucy and Nate’s only comes along once in a blue moon . . .

Lucy Marsh's worldly resources are running out, but she's fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father's recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Texas where her new husband is surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to care for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he'd marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate finds he'd give anything to protect Lucy and the children he's grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.

My Review:
Colleen Coble has another great book here, this one will linger with you long after you have finished.
We have a very strong girl in Lucy Marsh, and she is in a precarious position. When the story starts she has just lost job, and returns home to find that her landlord is selling the house. Things have been rough since the untimely death of her Dad, and she has two young siblings that are in her care.
Enter Henry Stanton, with the most unusual proposition, marry his son Nate and move to Texas. In the end she agrees, what else can she do to keep her little family together. There is a proxy marriage and she arrives as Nate's wife. Can you even imagine...Hi I'm your new wife...or her going blindly to TX, what she must have been wondering on what kind of a man needed his Dad to find him a spouse!
There are lots of really sweet things that happen in this story, and others will keep you on edge. There is treasure, rustling, break in, and a Tarantula named Zak!
Throughout the story you have to wonder if Lucy will follow God's Will or her own Will.
A really great read that will not want to end!
