Description
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. "There just isn't any way for this warm, entrancing, funny author to ever write enough to keep her fans happy."—Toronto Star

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This romance novel by the prolific writer Susan Elizabeth Phillips details the engaging relationship of an English headmistress and a suspended professional golfer. Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into acting as tour guide for Ms. Emma Wells-Finch. She is busily trying to spoil her spotless reputation, and he is just as enthusiastically trying to redeem his tarnished one. Set in rural Texas, this tale is read with alacrity by Anna Fields. Whether voicing Ms. Wells-Finch's cultured accent or the lazy drawl of Kenny Traveler and his family and friends, Fields's narration is smooth and realistic. B.J.L.

        February 1, 1999
        Flying from England to Texas, Lady Emma Wells-Finch meets world-famous pro golfer Kenny Traveler. She assumes that he's a gigolo and decides that he's just the man to relieve her of her virginity in order to get the stuffy, oafish Duke of Beddington out of her hair. Kenny's need to avoid scandal to save his career conflicts with Emma's need to invent scandal to free her from her English admirer. The results are hilarious. In a secondary plot line that mirrors Lady Emma's predicament with the duke, Kenny's seemingly flighty sister, Torrie--as beautiful as Kenny is handsome--is being forced by her father to marry geek Dexter O'Conner. Dexter and Lady Emma have their work cut out for them, for Kenny and Torrie's respective childhoods have left them scarred and incapable of adult relationships. Some outstanding secondary characters join this foursome, including those from Phillips's earlier Fancy Pants. Her Texas settings and sportsmen as heroes continue to shine, and her playful homage to the peculiarities of wealthy Texas women and small towns is dead-on. Phillips's newest is well written, funny, sexy and altogether satisfying.
