"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)
What a wonderful and complex cast of characters! With this book, you don't just get a heroine who dance around their attraction for one another for several hours, you get a whole town full of interesting and complex people who you care about, root for and despise. I loved the main characters but by the end I was wishing that Dex and Tori in particular had their own book!
Hilarious, smart and sexy. I recently discovered Susan Elizabeth Phillips and she is already one of my favorite authors. Her writing is laugh-out-loud hilarious, clever and steamy in a humorous just-right way...not too sappy, sugary. The narrartor, Anna Fields, aka Kate Fleming, does such a good job on this and other SEP books. Her voices and accents reflect the author's humor perfectly and in fact, she adds to the appeal of these audiobooks. Makes my hour working out fly by.
Love this Regency plot set in modern USA. Orphan Lady Emma travels to Texas to lose her virgnity, avoid the earl's suit, and save St. Gert's girls school. Indolent, wealthy rake refuses to explain himself despite others' misperceptions, creating conflict - Emma believes him to be a gigolo, and to have abandoned his child (really his brother); PGA and public (yes, it's a modern twist) believe he's punched the helpless without cause, tho that's not true. They fall in love and despite Emma's crazy plots manage to find happily ever after. Several laugh out loud moments when Emma's plots and Kenny's frustrations collide.
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.
Same romantic formula but different story. I liked both heroin and hero. Great semi- erotic romance, an easy fun read as usual.
A mother of three who love books,cooking and dogs.
Yes, because when I needed a laugh it give me one.
Victoria, because she me how I'm now
All she always do a good job.
Yes and would do it again.
All business but contemporary fun!
It was fun to see the lonely Emma come into the homely town of Wynette where everyone is in each other's business and Kenny is yet another gorgeous pro golfer who is stuck with her for a few days as a favor to Francesca. Entertaining as always.
The phenomenal british accents are juxtaposed beautifully against the Texan drawls. Anna did a great job as always.
I absolutely love this author (SEP) and this is one of her best books, in my opinion. It is very funny, and of course, a great love story. The characters are awesome. There are some truly laugh-out-loud parts. Normally Im not a fan of the reader, Anna Fields. I like the way she does the men's voices, but she always sounds a little nasally with the women, and their intonations aren't how I would have read them had I seen the on paper. However, the main character in this book is from England and she does a great accent and I really liked it. I'd highly recommend this audiobook! Hard to put down.
Lady Emma Wells-Finch arrives in small town Texas with one objective: to scandalize herself so that her undesirable fiance will call off their engagement. But there's a catch, she has to be subtle about it. Otherwise she fears he will close the boarding school she's headmistress of and regards as home. When she meets the handsome bad-boy golfer Kenny Traveler he seems like the perfect companion to help her scandalize herself. Unfortunately, he's trying to save his own skin and isn't initially eager to help her. Like so many of SEP's novels, the characters in this one (especially the male protagonist) seem to have it all together on the outside. But, the experiences of their past have damaged them, making it difficult for Emma and Kenny to come to terms with their budding relationship.
Of course, one of the things I love about SEP's novels is that there's always a secondary love story taking place. This one is between Kenny's sister Torie and Dexter, whom she regards as the biggest dweeb in Wynette, Texas. Fortunately, Dexter has few tricks up his sleeves which help him win the heart of the precocious, over-entitledTorie.
Anna Fields is an excellent narrator, bringing southern charm to Kenny's voice and British dry humor to Emma's.
