Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything is complete and utter disgrace. World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. He needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into his 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.

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.

They were friends, neighbors, and occasional confidants. Certainly nothing more. Now Kingston Roper needs a favor from Elissa Dean, he needs her to get caught in his bed.

Not fit at all

I'm starting to think that Diana Palmer's writing is really bad, judging by this book and another one available here titled Lord of the Desert. The writing is bad, the characters say everything that they are thinking (doesn't happen in real life, unrealistic dialogue) and the character's actions are immature. Perhaps reading the book would give a different impression, but I don't think so. The narration here is too forced..I prefer narrators who speak the lines with less personality (i.e. the danger here is making them sound whiney, childish) so I can make up my own mind about how they come across, esp. the lines of men. A woman who reads a man's lines trying to sound like a man only sounds silly and makes the hero sound goofy and unattractive. I'm wondering if audio books are for me or if I just haven't found the right ones.

Sheltered small-town girl Gretchen Brannon was utterly out of her element when she aligned herself with Sheikh Philippe Sabon, the formidable ruler of Qawi. They came from different worlds, yet she found a soul mate in the powerful, sensual man who'd suppressed his passions for far too long, and harbored a secret anguish. But he made this virtuous young woman aware of her own courage and, in turn, she aroused his sleeping senses as no other woman could.

Awful

This was awful. I'm not sure if it was the writing that bothered me so much or the narrator, who spoke the heroine's lines breathlessly and the hero's lines in an odd old-man accent. How can you enjoy a book when the voices conjure images of Barbie and Walter Matthau (sorry, Walt) having an affair? A wasted 3 hours. Oh, well, at least I got my ironing done.
