World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. Suspended from the sport he loves, he needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into the game. And when a gorgeous man who can't afford another scandal meets a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one, anything can happen...even love.

"Well written, funny, sexy, and altogether satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)
"[A] lively, well-written story. Phillips combines an unexpected premise with warm, appealing characters, and overlays it all with her zingy trademark humor and well-developed sense of the ridiculous." (Library Journal)
SEP is the best in the romantic comedy genre. I have listened to all her books and they are excellent (except for Fancy Pants). Her plot is laugh out loud funny, her characters are very likeable, and her stories are heartwarming and full of humor. This book is the story of Francesca's friend (from Fancy Pants) Lady Emma and Dallas Beaudine's protege Ken Traveler. It is hilarious!! Adding to the writing genius of SEP, you have the best female narrator in the business, Kate Fleming/Anna Fields who had tragically died in 2006 after working on Natural Born Charmer (another great SEP). What a loss to the literary world. I really miss her. Get this book and every other book by Mrs Phillips. There is no comparison to her talent.
I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She has no equal. This is one of her best. She always starts with a hero and a heroine who are completely different. But they come together with great love, banter and good humor.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is great, combine that with Anna Fields doing the narration and you will always have a winner. I love audiobooks but this is clearly one of the best. Listened to it twice!
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
You can not imagine how EXCITED I am to have discovered SEP !!!! This is my third book for her. I LOVE HER WORK ! Lovely stories, smart dialogue, and witty funny interaction that keeps you hooked and never wanting the audio to finish ! The nerrator is SOOOOOOO GOOD !!!! As if you are watching a movie , as she makes the characters come to life! I highly highly recommend this audio :) enjoy :)
Engaging characters, entertaining plot, good sexy relationship, interesting mildly dis-functional family setting, excellent performance. Thoroughly enjoyed the listen.
The humor found in the characters and the narrator's way of communicating that humor was so endearing. She made the characters seem so real. The minor characters were also enjoyable and brought extra humor and romance! I laughed out loud so many times.
Ms. Field's did an amazing job with her many accents, speaking with an English accent and then geniune Texas drawls. There is definitely a difference in a southern accent and a Texas drawl and Ms. Field's nailed it! Every character came to life; you could almost visualize each one.
Definitely worth a credit. There is not an overly use of descriptive sexual encounters which gets really old after awhile (I don't mind the innuendos).
Highly entertaining. Laugh out loud funny. Anna Fields showcases her talent with her masterful performance of this book. Just great!
I loved this book! Susan E Phillips masters the art of keeping me interested in hearing more! The narration is fantastic and the different voices are as if more than one person is reading. you won't be disappointed!
I write reviews for SEP books only for the purpose of others because I will always know, without a single doubt, that anything that has her name on it, will be a hit and this one is definitely no exception to this rule of thumb for me. Kenny is hilarious; Emma, I adore and the secondary characters, primarily Tori and Dexter, are great, too. The narrator: one of my absolute favorites.
