    A drunken night of passion threatens to reveal a lifetime of pretty dirty secrets. 
    The continuation of the award-winning Pretty Broken series: 
    Since childhood, Venetia Seaforth has had a crush on her brother Sam’s best friend Piers Beckett. Like everyone else in her life, Beckett never paid much attention to her, but when their paths cross on a sultry New Orleans night, she’s thrilled to be in his bed. The next morning, however, is a different story. She knew he was a player, but she didn’t expect to be tossed out of his hotel room. Angry and hurt, she just has to get through Sam’s wedding with Beckett at her side, and she’ll never have to see him again. Except fate has a different idea… 
    Hotshot divorce attorney Piers Beckett has a plan: make senior partner, make lots of money, and shag a few hotties along the way. One night with Venetia destroys all his dreams. Now they’re tied together for life, and she wants nothing to do with him. He’s determined to win her over, but in order to do so, he has to keep their relationship a secret. Being with her threatens his career, his friendship with Sam, and changes his outlook on love. 
    As Venetia struggles to trust Beckett, he uncovers a secret that will shatter her life forever.

We’re headed for a brighter future and it only cost me my soul. A small price to pay until I met Scarlett. She came out of nowhere to stir my blood. I can’t get enough. I know she’s hiding something from me and before I’m through, I mean to make her bare everything to me...her body, her heart and her secrets. Because she doesn’t realize she’s met her match. 
     
    Scarlett - I want Sly Cullinan in every way that’s wrong for me. Getting close to him was just supposed to be part of the job. I know he’s a killer. Because you see, I’m a killer too. For his past sins, it seems everyone wants him dead. But when he touches me, I can't resist. When he whispers my name in the dark, I can’t breathe.

    "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.
