Abandoning her fiancé at the altar after discovering that her husband-to-be, a Dallas Cowboy and pampered scion of an oil-rich dynasty, is not what she thought, Pippa Walker finds herself the target of the tabloids and is disinherited by her family, unless she can secure a degree from an accredited school. Original. 50,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

A fun, fresh frolic of a novel starring a spoiled but lovable Texas heiress out to reclaim her fortune

Pippa Walker's wedding was to be huge—Texas huge—complete with twelve bridesmaids under contract from Pippa's mother to stay lean and long-haired, gondolas flown in from Venice, A- and B- guest lists. But when Pippa finds out her handsome husband-to-be isn't what she thought, she bolts from her own wedding, shocking society and getting herself disinherited. The only way she can get a piece of the family fortune back is to earn a degree from a school. Any school. It's a tough assignment for a girl who dropped out of SMU after pledging Kappa Kappa Gamma and shopping at Neiman's for a year.

But Pippa is nothing if not up for a challenge. Attracting one hilarious misadventure after another, she tries to earn her sheepskin at: driving school, matchmaking school, even a circus academy. It's only when she hits rock-bottom—The Mountbatten Savoy School of Household Management—that things begin to look up. But can she really be falling in love with a…valet?
