When Britisher Lady Sydney Hathwell's father dies, the American who planned to wed her suddenly reneges. Stranded in America and penniless, Sydney contacts a relative in Texas who, mistaking her male-sounding name, invites his "nephew" to join him on his ranch.
"Big Tim" Creighton, however, is appalled when this mincing fop arrives at Forsaken. He determines he'll turn Fancy Pants Hathwell into a man before the boss returns home. From the get-go, he has "the kid" mucking stalls, clearing and plowing a field, and assisting with a difficult calving. But when Sydney's true identity is uncovered, Tim resents being deceived. Yet in time, he also finds that he doesn't like all the attention Sydney garners now that she's wearing pretty gowns...
Together Sydney and Tim will discover the importance of family and what it means to be a man--and a woman--of God.

From the beginning, this novel captured my attention with the unusual plot and humorous dialogue. I am not sure how almost everyone could have taken Sydney for a boy, but the story was still very enjoyable. The clear presentation of salvation was excellent, and the characters were likable.
KaelmeAge: 25-343 Stars Out Of 5March 8, 2014KaelmeAge: 25-34I enjoyed a few aspects of this book and disliked several others. The humor the book attempted was well done. Slap-stick type humor was done fairly well, and the dialogue had moments where it really was extremely witty. There were times, however, where the humor felt forced and over the top, primarily in overly witty dialogue that felt unnatural.
The romance, while very cute at parts, came across as uneven to me. Cute and plausible moments followed by rushes of feeling that didn't seem to follow the pace for growth that was previously set. Secondary characters also weren't fleshed out very well, and the salvation acceptance near the end seemed rushed and unnaturally timed/forced.
While there were individual scenes that interested me, I would not pick up the book in order to re-read.

It sure was a good treat for me - like a dessert, that's so delicious you just want to dig in for one more spoonful and one more and one more.
I loved the story, the characters and the twists and turns.
TinaWMesa, AZAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lively, Enjoyable and made me Smile!July 29, 2011TinaWMesa, AZAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was my first Cathy Marie Hake book and a good choice. I read the reviews and they said to read them in order, however, I am an adventurer at heart! Though the books can build on the characters, I found they each stood solid on their own.
This book made me smile and giggle and hope. I enjoyed each of the characters and plot. The main character trying to find her way to a new home - though it meant trying to fit into a mans world as one! I don't want to spoil the book, but the romance will make you smile. The story line built my expectations and it did succeed. I was a sad that it ended so quickly.. only 296 pages. Romance and a Godly message of trusting in the Lord to guide. If you would like a smile to cross your face today, buy this e-book and enjoy!
