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)

    "Enjoyed It!"

    I've picked up a couple of Susan Elizabeth Phillips newer books from the library and enjoyed them, so I thought I would give this one a try and I wasn't disappointed! The characters, even the secondary ones, were well developed and there were many laugh out loud scenes. I would definitely recommend this one.

    "Great Humor"

    I have to add this book to one of my favorite SEP books. There were times I laughed out loud.

    "Lady Be Good"

    I've read all of SEP's books several times. Listening is even more fun. I was laughing out loud as I listened, and, at times, crying.

    SEP can't be beat for stories that move your emotions.

    "Modern Regency Conflict"

    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.

    "Cracked. Me. Up."

    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!

    "Deliciously funny"

    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.

    "Anna Fields...."

    The story was pretty good but it was Anna who slam dunked it. Since I've only begun reading Ms. Phillips's books the last few years, I have not gotten to the stories read by other narrators. I miss her already....

    All in all it was a good story with likable characters. SEP's writing is always very vivid and although sometimes predictable, it's never disappointing.

    "you will love this one!"

    One of my favorites by this author. The romance and the characters make this book one of ms Phillips best. Narrator as always, was nearly perfect.
