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.

©1999 Susan Elizabeth Phillips; (P)1999 Books on Tape

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)

    "Good Story, Great Narration"

    Anna Fields makes the story. Her character voices are wonderful and she nails the personality of each character to totally enchant the listener. I liked the story too, don't get me wrong because it was entertaining and of course, romantic. But Anna Fields has to be given her due, without her, the story might not have been as entertaining.

    "Typical SEP...Light and wonderful!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Be Good to be better than the print version?

    I own both the audio and print and I really enjoyed the audio. There are some parts that Anna Fields just brings to life in a way that I can't imagine myself doing as I read along.


    What other book might you compare Lady Be Good to and why?

    Any SEP book is going to be about the same: light, romantic, and full of fun. This may be my favorite by her, but Ain't She Sweet would be a close second.


    Which character – as performed by Anna Fields – was your favorite?

    Anna Fields' Lady Emma was spot on. She had a bearable accent, but played all of the reserve and eventual emotion perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book, in typical SEP fashion! Thanks for the excellent read!

    "Love Susan Elizabeth Phillips"

    Good read! Started slow but once it got going, I loved it. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is becoming one of my favorite authors! This one was not as good as Glitter Baby but was right up there. You would not be wasting a credit on either of these books. They are the kind that you can't wait to get back to and are sorry when they are finished.

    "Book is good, narrative is funny"
    Would you listen to Lady Be Good again? Why?

    Yes, this book made me laugh and enjoy even the family fights.


    What other book might you compare Lady Be Good to and why?

    I enjoyed this book as much as Bet Me by Jennifer Cruisie.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    I love her stile. She took ownership over the characters to help us see each scene.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, the description of each character was so good that I felt like if I knew them.


    Any additional comments?

    I will look for Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books and also for the books read by Anna Fields.

    "Good Book but Winced at Audible"

    I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's one of my favorite and I especially love the witty and fun characters she produces! I only wish I had read this book instead of listening to it. The low, southern accented voice of the hero just made me wince so much I had a hard time even liking him. And being read by a female voice, I think I'd rather she 'played it straight' and just read in a normal voice. My imagination could have taken over. Our heroine's British accent was nice enough, but it seemed that all I could do when listening was try to block out the voice and try to 'hear' the story. Does that make sense? Anyway - next time I'll look for the STAR reviews for the audible version, which can be quite different from the paper version. And unless the reader is REALLY good at voices (like the wonderful ones in THE HELP), I would suggest they just read, not try to act.

    "Cute, funny and enjoyable."

    I enjoyed Lady Emma as she tried to be "Bad" even though she was good to the bone. Very cute story and as always, a great love story from SEP.

    "Story good, narration just so so"

    I liked the story and characters, it was funny and I couldn't stop listening to it, however she kills the males voice, and made the english accent seem like the main woman character is an old lady (just being honest). I have heard worse though, so in the end I would get it again just be prepare.

    "Awesome!"

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