This has to be Cathy's best book. It is both interesting and humourous, engaging the readers mind and heart. Her characters are 3D and interesting.
Lady Sydney Hathwell flees to her Uncle's ranch to escape an unwanted betrothal. Knowing that her Uncle is under the impression that she is a boy and that he has no use for girls, Sydney disguises herself as a boy.
When she arrives in Texas and turns up on Forsaken, her Uncle isn't there and she is left to the charge of 'Big Tim' Creighton.
The last thing 'Big Tim' wants to do is babysit a British fop and he determines to turn 'Syd' into a 'proper man' before Fuller Johnson returns to a thorough embarrassment of a nephew.
Big Tim's methods for making a man out of Sydney are set to kill her before her true identity is discovered.
