Item description for A Man Worthy by Cassandra Ormand...
A mix-up in travel plans thrusts pampered Chelsea Bowden of Boston into the midst of a group of uncouth men set to journey through the Australian desert, guided by the disturbingly attractive Thaddeus Nolan. Expecting the amenities of a posh Sydney hotel suite, Chelsea finds herself instead having to bear up to the rigors of a life that is altogether unfamiliar to her. She suffers the swarming flies, punishing heat, masses of mosquitoes, and a backside bruised from being forced to travel by camel, yet still the desert manages to captivate her with its beauty and mystery. Under a relentless sun, through the trials of an unforgiving land, she comes to know herself like never before. And she realizes that she is engaged to the wrong man. It's Thaddeus Nolan she wants, the rugged outdoorsman who doesn't fit into her circle of society.

A Man Worthy Dec 3, 2003
A Man Worthy is so much more than the typical romance novel. Cassandra Ormand takes us through the rugged desert of Austrailia while finding true love in the most unlikely place and with the most unlikely man. Cassandra Ormand manages to weave a tail of intrigue and romance while making the reader feel like they are the novel. I couldn't put the book down, like so many of her other novels.

A MAN WORTHY by Cassandra Ormand provides the romance lover with a lovely romp perfect for light entertainment. A humorous and sensual novel, A MAN WORTHY is a delightful tale of mistaken identity, love, and surprises.
Chelsea Bowden has the perfect life: a financial analyst job at her father's company, wealth, and a gorgeous fiancé. But her love life lacks that spark of attraction that keeps love always smoldering in the background. That is, her life lacks that excitement until a case of mistaken identity lands her in the Australian outback with Thad instead of a luxury hotel in Sydney with Lowell Blankenship III.
Lowell arranged the Australian trip without consulting Chelsea's opinion. He wanted something new, different and adventuresome rather than their customary trip to the French Rivera. What he got beat his imagination by a long shot. But certainly what his vanity and self-centeredness deserves! When Perry Bowden, Chelsea's father, descends upon her hapless fiancé demanding to know where his missing daughter has gone, the heat is on.
Once Chelsea's identity is sorted out, she accompanies Thad's group riding camels and exploring Australia's outback for two weeks, rather than returning to Sydney. She's strangely attracted to Thad, and determined to prove her fortitude despite the hot, dry conditions and her lack of preparation. And Thaddeus Nolan is an enigmatic man of the desert, beyond the range of any man she's ever known. She knows it'll be hard to return to civilization because she'll always compare every man to Thad, especially Lowell.
Thad is equally determined to keep her there, against his better judgement, because he can't seem to tear himself away from the pretty woman who can ride camels and demonstrate remarkable spirit despite her highborn background. This blossoming protectiveness toward the remarkable Chelsea is quite unnerving. She had made him question every decision he'd ever made, especially his nomadic lifestyle.
The heat of Ormand's writing matches the heat of the Australian outback. Yet the timeless quality of the writing also invites the reader to share in the delight of Chelesea's surroundings, relaxing in the beauty and warmth. Tender and enduring, A MAN WORTHY is an old-fashioned love story including sexual tension and a fascinating landscape that mustn't be missed.
