About the book:

Book Number One in the Under Texas Stars series

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:

I just loved this book. It was so much fun to read and at many times I found myself laughing out loud. Watching Lucy and Nate figure out how to love each other, live with each other and work alongside one another was downright funny. They each had so much to learn from each other and about each other but with God and time they learn they are perfect for each other. On top of the budding romance Colleen throws in the mystery of what really happened to Lucy's father. Oh the twists and turns this book takes and in the end it is nothing like what was expected. Colleen Coble tells a western tale set in 1877 Texas that weaves together romance, mystery, secrets, lies and humor. I give this book 4.5 stars out of 5!
