Humorous Romance From a Bestselling Author

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.

    I enjoyed a few aspects of this book and disliked several others

    I enjoyed a few aspects of this book and disliked several others. The humor the book attempted was often 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. And the resolution with Syd's proposed fiance completely lacks any sense of plausible resolution. All tension leading up to that point is doused when, it turns out, there was nothing really to fear and a simple solution was readily accepted.

    While there were individual scenes that interested me, I would not pick up the book in order to re-read.

    I really liked reading this book and would have given it 5 stars

    I really liked reading this book and would have given it 5 stars except for the last 1/3 of the book. It was a hoot and the characters were well written up to that point.

    The preaching became a bit over the top for me and the story seemed to drag a bit the last 1/3 of the book. The ending was good but not great for me.

    Overall it was an enjoyable read.

    terrific amusing inspirational historical romance

    In 1889 following the death of her father, Lady Sydney Hathwell, escorted by her Aunt Serena leaves England to join her American fiancé Rexall Hume in New York. However, he agrees to her insistence of an acceptable period of mourning before they marry. One year and one day later, Rexall demands they wed, but Sydney knows they do not suit. Sydney receives a telegram from her Uncle Fuller, who was unaware he had living relatives until he got her note. He invites his nephew to live on his Forsaken Ranch in Gooding, Texas where he explained no human females reside. With Hume¿s unknowing help disguised as a boy she goes to the ranch. Her uncle is away and the ranch foreman widower ¿Big Tim¿ Creighton thinks his boss will be disappointed with his foppish nephew. He decides to change this ¿FANCY PANTS¿ into a real man though he also hopes to drive his lordship back across the content and ocean. Instead Lord Sydney begins to fall in love as she sees the vulnerable caring side of Big Tim, but fears once Uncle Fuller learns he has a niece he will kick her out, leaving her vulnerable to Rexall. --- This is a terrific amusing inspirational historical romance. Sydney is a fabulous nephew as the ranch hands led by Big Tim struggle to toughen up the girly boy going so far as to take her to a brothel. Big Tim in many ways is the more interesting protagonist as he began to fall in love with her when she was an English sissy. The story line is intelligent and fun to read because Hume is not a nasty villain as he persists in marrying Sydney although she rejects them as unsuited (could his story be next?). Cathy Marie Hake has written a droll late nineteenth century tale that sub-genre readers will cherish. --- Harriet Klausner

    It was cute, funny, and well-written, but I'm torn. Loved the first two-thirds of the story. Wanted to delete the book many times during the last third. As others have said, the last third was way, way too preachy.
    I don't have a problem with books that include aspects of Christian faith as long as it's kept within the confines of the story, which was the case for the first couple hundred pages.
    Then the storyline took a bit of a left turn.

    This book was supposed to be a romance, but it was completely absent until the end. The author did a great job developing the friendship between Tim and Sydney, but the romance felt forced and thrown in as an excuse to preach and convert. I have another book by this author, but I'm not sure if I'm even going to read it. It's unfortunate because I really enjoyed the author's writing style.

    I loved the book. I laughed a lot. I really enjoyed the story line and  found it hard to put down. It has been a while that I've cared this much about the characters. It was  a fun book. I highly recommend this book.
