Publisher's Summary

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

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.

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

This is one of my favorite books!

This book had me hooked from chapter one! I love everything about it. The blue moon promise will not disappoint you! But I suggest waiting till the weekend so you don’t have to wait long hours to listen some more.

I read this book because it was a different author than I've read before but it was the same as all the western romance. not real western, not very romantic.

Amazing read!!

This story gripped my heart from start to finish. Such a pure love story, and compelling message. Clean plot, well rounded characters, humor, and emotion all welled into one book.
I’m picky about the books I read, and can be quite skeptical and analytical when it comes to novels, but I can only say great things about this book. I found myself relating to the character Lucy on several occasions. This story captures what true love is all about, not only within the love story between characters, but wonderfully spoke about the love of Christ as well.

The story was so compelling that I finished it within less than 24 hours of starting.

Whiny annoying protagonist

This book was a terrible story with every page Lucy has another accident . She whines and manipulated and pouts. The narrator sounded like a kindergarten teacher I had in the 50’s who was old, I rolled my eyes a lot.

Too Problematic For My Taste

So yeah, this is probably one of the oldest books I have on my TBR and I was really ready to be swept away by the Texan cowboys .. but alas I was really disappointed
the story is about Lucy who finds herself in a tight spot in life, she has to take care of her two younger siblings after the death of her parents and her landlord is evacuating her soon .. and then suddenly, a friend of her late father gives a proposition, marry his son Nate and she will be cared for .. the catch is .. Nate doesn't know he is married to Lucy, so imagine his surprise when he discover that this woman is his wife, will it work ?
this is a Christian fiction, of course it will work.. but I really didn't like how Lucy was really ok with forcing a guy into marrying her, really, she was so ready for her "wifely duties" since day one .. it's weird to see that the guy was the jerk and he was dragged into it without knowing (did it work this way at that time ? could his father get him into marriage without his consent ? ) .. yeah this is too problematic for me

the narrator wasn't great .. she was barely performing and I didn't like her lack of emotions, specially in the intense scenes
