9780062028525: Lady Be Good: A Novel (Wynette, Texas)

“[A] sexy and whimsical modern fairy tale.”

Greensboro News & Record

 

“The always-funny Susan Elizabeth Phillips…has the heat turned up all the way for this one.”

Detroit Free Press

 

The only four-time recipient of the Romance Writer’s of America’s prestigious Favorite Book of the Year Award, the incomparable Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of America’s most beloved authors—and Lady Be Good is one of the perennial New York Times bestseller’s hottest, funniest, and most delightfully wild romance novels. The uproarious tale of a proper English headmistress hell-bent on destroying her reputation and a disgraced Texas athlete playboy determined to salvage his own, Lady Be Good is funny, sexy, and irrefutable proof of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s assertion that “Next to Tracy and Hepburn, no one does romantic comedy better than Susan Elizabeth Phillips.”

Review:

Lady Emma Wells-Finch is determined to cause a scandal. Nothing big, you understand, just enough to convince her pompous British suitor that she's not an eligible candidate for marriage. She's thinking along the lines of, oh, maybe a discreet tattoo. But when suspended Texas golf pro Kenny Traveler meets her plane at Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport, Emma decides that he's the perfect candidate to destroy her reputation.

Kenny, on the other hand--who desperately wants to be reinstated on the golf tour--is just as determined to keep a low profile and remain squeaky-clean. If Lady Emma weren't a close personal friend of the golf commissioner's wife, he'd never have agreed to squire her around town. Unfortunately for Kenny, his weakness for the British beauty is growing daily, and it seems as though Emma may have feelings for him as well. In a bizarre turn of events, wild man Kenny finds himself trying to keep the prim and proper British lady from causing a scandal the size of which even the lone-star state has never seen, and the results will leave you laughing with delight.

Below the hilarious dialogue that is Susan Elizabeth Phillips's trademark, Kenny, Emma, and the charming array of characters that populate this exceptional contemporary are warm and wonderfully human. Emma saves her Kenny and he saves her right back--never were two people more gloriously deserving of each other. --Lois Faye Dyer

From the Back Cover:

Lady Emma Wells-Finch has only two weeks to destroy her reputation. The ever-so-proper headmistress of England's St. Gertrude's School for Girls, Emma arrives in Texas knowing that only one thing will save her from losing everything she holds dear: complete and utter disgrace. Meanwhile, world famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler—suspended from the sport he loves because of very bad behavior—knows the only thing that can restore his career is complete and utter respectability. Unfortunately, he's been blackmailed into chauffeuring around a beautiful, bossy, single-minded Brit who's hell-bent on visiting honky-tonks, tattoo parlors, and worse. . . . Much worse.

The incomparable Susan Elizabeth Phillips gives readers a wild and sexy story brimming with hilarity and heart—a tall Texas tale of the sparks that fly when a gorgeous god of a man who can't afford another scandal hooks up with a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one.
