For book description and other information about the book, please click on the picture to go to the Goodreads page.I was accepted by Litfuse to review "Safe in His Arms" which is the second book in the Under the Texas Stars series by Colleen Coble. I wanted to read the first book, "Blue Moon Promise" so that I could have a good background established before reading book two. I've bought very, very few books this year. I've had a self-imposed limit for buying and get most of my books either through paperbackswap or for review. Not to mention the many books on my shelf. This was one of the few I bought.
Nate's reaction to his father bringing him home a bride-by-proxy was priceless. He cowboyed up and muddles his way along as he takes his responsibility to care for Lucy and her siblings the best that he can. Once he decided to accept the marriage, he was all in.
Lucy knew they needed protection but was a little slower at warming up to Nate. She was so consumed with trying to be the best at everything that she didn't take the time to enjoy life. I enjoyed watching her learn that you can't earn love and that most of all God's love isn't earned it is freely given.
