Publisher's Summary

Lady Emma Wells-Finch, the oh-so-proper headmistress of England's St. Gertrude School for Girls, comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything she holds dear is complete and utter disgrace.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Awesome!"

    This story is warm, charming, funny and wildly romantic. Vintage SEP at her best! I highly recommend it.

    "good"

    This is another cute story from S.E.P. I have read all except one of her stories, and she consistently writes good romantic, humorous stories. This would not be a wasted credit.

    "not my favorite"

    I generally purchase audio books when I have a long drive planned. When I listened to "Lady be Good" I completed my drive with two hours left on the book, and it took me a week to get around to finishing the story! It's not that the book is bad, it just isn't so good that I felt the need to finish it in a timely manner. Having read about SEP's next book I am glad that I completed "Lady be Good" because one of it's characters is the male lead in her next novel.

    "LOVE IT!"

    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.

    "If you can Get Past the Narrator..."

    ... this is another entertaining book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. The narrator is obviously much older than the character and that is a bit off-putting. Also, the character Lady Emma isn't a bit like any of my in-laws or the hundreds of British citizens I know -- she's more of a bad stereo-type. But that doesn't take away from the super entertaining story.

    "not my style"

    It seems a lot of readers love her books, they are just not my cup of tea.

    "Wonderful!"

    This is one of my favorite SEP books. It is witty and charming and great fun to listen to. The prequel to "Lady Be Good" is "Fancy Pants," which is not as good, but I think you'll enjoy reading them in order.

    "Totally entertaining"

    I love every book that this author writes and the narrator is the very best I have ever heard. Great story with wonderful characters fully developed. Had me laughing out loud at times. Wonderful ending leaving me with wanting to read or listen to more of her stories.

    "Loved It"

    Ditto. Loved the story (laugh out loud) and characters and narration. I loved this narrator in Aint She Sweet. I however was slightly disappointed in Lady Emmas voice. she sounded stuffy and old..but you got used to it so was not too bad.
