This is an old book but oh so much fun to read. Fancy Pants by Cathy Marie Hake is a delightful and funny read about a woman who refuses to marry a man who can’t remember her first name! It’s Lady Syndey Hathwell by the way. So how does she escape this problem? Let’s just say there are scissors and pants involved.
This is one of those can’t put down books. What I didn’t realize is there are more books in this series! Color me happy! I’ll be adding the rest of the series to my TBR pile. Someday that tower is going to come crazing down on my head. Hmm, bed rest and books to recover?
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.
