“A lady will always be a lady, no matter how much she try to be another. This book is a good read. It's funny and may remind you of Pride and Prejudice because of the constant bantering of the hero and heroine. You might enjoy this, it is a light read.”see full review » see other reviews »

“3.5, actually. I don't even remember reading this one in 2004! But anyway, I wasn't very happy with the two main characters. They were so different from one another and even though they may have had reasons to be the way they were, I disliked their attitudes toward each other. Maybe that's not a reason to dislike a book but that's it.
Kenny was a much-loved golf pro, Emma was a lovely British lady who just had to be bossy. Because Kenny wasn't playing in this year's Masters )he was being "punished" by the Commissioner) he was asked to spend time with Emma while she finished her research for her book. Then she was to be married to a man she despised, in England. Emma was bound that she'd make the Duke in England decide he'd not marry her - she was going to do whatever she could to gain notoriety and shame him. The doing of that included seducing Kenny, of course; but she didn't figure on what else would occur.”

“Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to America to find a way out of an undesireable engagement to her school's benefactor--marry him or he'll shut the school down. If she can sully her reputation, he'll lose interest and leave her school alone. Kenny Traveler has been suspended from the pro golf tour and has been enlisted by the commissioner's wife to tend to Lady Emma while she's in Texas. His hope is that by doing this, it will curry favor with the commissioner and he'll be reinstated.
There are lots of very funny moments in this story, especially moments dominated by Kenny. He's much more complicated than what he presents to the world and is charming in his own way. Lady Emma is a perfect foil for him but comes across as a flat, dense woman with tunnel vision. It was difficult to accept that Kenny would find her appealing.
There are other characters who are much more interesting and help to keep you engaged in the story. I am rating this book 3.5 stars What keeps me from giving this a 4 star rating is the dullness of Lady Emma. Kenny is too fascinating to settle for this relationship. ”
