Because You're Mine

Amid the beauty of Charleston, not all is as it seems.

When her husband Liam is killed by a car bomb while their Celtic band is on tour in Charleston, singer and Irish beauty Alanna doesn't quite know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but Alanna knows she can't lose the only piece of Liam she has left.

Alanna's manager offers her a marriage of convenience to obtain U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law's control. It seems like the perfect solution until she arrives at the family home of her new husband—a decaying mansion with more questions than answers.

Strange things begin happening that threaten Alanna's life and the life of her child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is something more sinister at work?

A mysterious painting, a haunting melody, and a love stronger than death leave Alanna questioning where darkness ends and light begins.

    November 7, 2016
    Fans of Coble’s romantic suspense novels (The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, etc.), as well as those who enjoy Irish music, will appreciate this sweet standalone’s backstage view of Ceol, a four-woman Celtic band, founded by Alanna Connolly, a beautiful red-haired Irish singer. When Alanna’s beloved husband, Liam, dies in a car bombing while on tour in Charleston, S.C., Alanna, who’s pregnant, is determined to continue Ceol. To escape her powerful and manipulative father-in-law, who wants to take Liam’s child from her, Alanna makes what amounts to a pact with the devil. Despite a slew of clues and warnings, she decides to marry Barry Kavanaugh, the band’s obsessive manager, in order to gain U.S. citizenship. Things start to go wrong once Alanna arrives at Barry’s creepy old family mansion, with its locked rooms, a portrait of a woman who looks like Alanna, a lake complete with an alligator, and a traumatized dog. No need to worry about Alanna, though; love and Christian faith ensure a happy ending. Agent: Karen Solem, Spencerhilll Associates.
