Lucy Marsh in order to protect her younger brother and sister takes Henry Stanton up on his offer to marry his son Nate Stanton. Nate Stanton just wants to run his ranch. He doesn't have time to think about a wife.
Blue Moon Promise is the first book in the Under Texas Stars it is also not your typical mail order bride story. There’s a few twist and turns for it to be typical. To Nate Lucy is not the proper rancher’s wife she’s too tiny. Lucy is bound and determined to prove him wrong. Early in the book Nate discovers that Lucy is great at something he didn't expect of a city girl.
At first I didn't think that I would like Blue Moon Promise because to be completely honest I haven't liked any of Colleen Coble’s early historical fiction. I am a more of a fan of her modern novels. However I fell in love with the book and characters pretty much from the first page. I loved Lucy’s spunk and determined nature. I also loved Nate’s willingness to protect his “new family.”
All in all it was a great read and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
