From the Back Cover
It's 1916, and Idaho rancher Cleo Arlington knows everything about horses but nothing about men. So when charged with transforming English aristocrat Sherwood Statham from playboy into cowboy, she's totally disconcerted. So is Statham, who's never encountered a woman succeeding in a 'man's world.' Their bumpy trot into romance is frustrating, exhilarating, and ultimately heartwarming. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Anyone who has read a Christian romance novel knows how the book turns out without even turning a page. Usually, I do not enjoy reading them for that reason. This book is different. I found the characters to be interesting enough to hold my attention. The rhythm of the book does flow nicely although there are a few times I needed to reread to figure out the exact time table of events. Overall, this was an entertaining way to pass a few hours and would make a good book for under the Christmas tree.
Fit to Be Tied, published by Zondervan
Sherwood "Woody" has been sent by his father to the ranch. Not knowing what to expect, he hopes to escape his current path in life. Wounds he got in the war are both physical and mental, but he'll never complain to a woman like Cleo. As they start to get to know one another, their differences begin to fade, but will they discover they like each other enough that once his year in America is over, they'll find the common ground to stay together?
I did enjoy this book. It was a fast, easy read and I loved Cleo's spunk and the way she treated Woody at first. No special treatment for the son of a duke! The first book in the series, A Vote of Confidence, was about Gwen, Cleo's sister, and she shows up quite a bit in this book. While you get a lot of the lives of Morgan and Gwen, you don't get much of the story of how they ended up together. In my opinion, this makes it a safe series to read out of order. The final book in the series, A Matter of Character, is about Daphne, Morgan's sister.
Sherwood, well I expected a spoiled brat, and to give them all sorts of problems. Robin did a grand job of the character of Sherwood. Can't help but love him too.
Sherwood Statham, wounded WWI solider and British aristocrat, is sent to live in the states as punishment for his life of ill-repute. It's either a year in America or a loss of his inheritance, so he enters Cleo's life penniless, broken, and determined to prove himself.
Tossing the two of these characters together ends in an explosion of misunderstandings, humor, and...you guessed it, romance. Sherwood, who is used to 'proper' ladies, is shocked to find himself warming to this blue-eyed, freckled-faced tomboy. Though scarred on the outside, his greatest scars are within, and as Sherwood (or Woody) learns from Cleo's family about God's love, his deepset wounds begin to heal. He finds hope.
Cleo never thought she'd need to be rescued, and never expected the fancy-pants Brit to do it, but when he swoops in twice to protect her, she realizes she's misjudged Woody. Is she willing to risk her heart for a man who will only take her away from the life she loves?
Just when it seems they're 'fit to be tied' will love break the string?
What do I think?
Go! Buy the book. Now.
Robin Lee Hatcher's second book in the Sister's of Bethlehem Springs is even better than its' predecessor, A Vote of Confidence. I literally read it in two hours and laughed...often.
Fit To Be Tied is about a young lady who is confident in herself, even though she doesn't fit into the typical 'lady' mold, and about a man who must learn to believe in himself again.Read more ›
