Welcome to the blog tour for Colleen's first book in a brand new series: Under Texas Stars.

"Coble is a great writer, she knows what readers want and she does not disappoint." —Romantic Times

Blue Moon Promise is a story of hope, romance, and suspense . . . immersing the reader in a rich historical tale set under Texas stars.

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 THOUGHTS:
I'm loving all the novels set in Texas that have been released recently. (Now if only the authors would come this way for some book-signings!) Colleen Coble always pens a good story, and this opening to her new series is no exception. Lucy and her brother and sister (Jed and Eileen) wrapped themselves around my heart immediately. Lucy is such a complex characater -- so spunky, competent and determined while at the same time overcome with insecurities. She may be tiny in stature, but she has a heart as big as the Texas sky! Nate didn't endear himself to me (or to Lucy!) initially but then, that should come as no surprise for a confirmed bachelor running a big ol' Texas ranch! It didn't take long for him to get used to having a family in his previously barren cabin life! Danger and intrigue rear their heads like a rattler poised to strike when least expected as Colleen blends just the right amount of tension with blossoming love. Don't make a Blue Moon Promise to read this; grab a copy today!
