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.

This was such a lovely introduction to read Colleen Coble's work. I love the characters that she is able to bring to life, and the way she treads inspiration, suspense, action, and love is a unique talent that she has carefully crafted. I highly recommend this read for anyone wanting to explore inspirational fiction with a hint of romance, and for those willing to take a leap of faith.

Very interesting. I highly recommend to someone who loves a good balance for adventure and love. I think she captured the sheer determination of a woman who is trying to prove herself.

This book was surprising. I read the Author's Note when I was partway through the book, and it gave extra depth (that I appreciated) to the plot and characters.
The premise was a slightly different take off a common trope: marriage of convenience. With two young step-siblings to care for, and poverty fast approaching, Lucy agrees to a proxy marriage to the son of her deceased father's friend. What follows is, of course, the blossoming romance between the two despite initial friction. She does seem to fall into an almost unbelievable number of damsel-in-distress type scenarios, but they are quickly dealt with and the plot advances.
Personally, Lucy's struggle as a control-freak trying to earn everyone's love was surprisingly convicting.

This book was terrible right from the start. It was filled with very little description and too much jumpy dialogue. The plot was poor at best. Would not recommend.
