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.

Colleen Coble has always been a wonderfully talented author with her ability to take romance, Godly messages, and fabulous characters and mix them all with a bit of suspense. Her stories capture the hearts of readers instantly and before you realize, you’re at the end of another fabulous novel. Blue Moon Promise is one of those amazingly written novels filled with a powerful plot line and intriguing suspenseful elements.
A story filled with hope, honor, trust and second chances, this book takes the reader on a whirlwind of emotions. Lucy Marsh is left to raise her young siblings, Jed and Eileen, after her father was found murdered. Their mother was gone, and their step mother…well let’s just say that she didn’t stay around long. So, when she’s forced to make a decision of an arranged marriage by her father’s friend, or risk being evicted from the home she lives in, she sets off to meet her new husband.
Nate Stanton is not only shocked to find his father has brought him a wife, but also that she comes as a packaged deal: her siblings. Knowing that he could never love her, he is reluctant to jump into the marriage. But, when trouble arises for Lucy and her siblings, and Nate’s father falls ill, he agrees to the marriage.
As each new page turn brings another twist here, and events happen through the book that pushes the turns of the story to the center of the readers heart, you’ll be swept away on a head-spinning ride, as Lucy and Nate realize that love and faith in God can over come any circumstance, good or bad.
