His parents impetuous nature has left him with a distaste for anything but a well-ordered lifestyle in DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH (4.5). But when his ancestral home becomes the spoils of an outrageous wager, Viscount Adrian Linsley is forced into a contest of skill on the links of St. Andrews. Unfortunately, he knows nothing of golf! With the help of an old duffer and a pert caddy, Adrian is presented with the chance to beat his detestable opponent and also finds that his caddy is actually a quite attractive young society miss in disguise. Miss Derrien Edwards is by no means ordinary; soon they find themselves attracted to each other despite their attempts to remain on an even par. This is an engagingly different setting for romance, and Andrea Pickens knows more than enough about romance and golf to create a very felicitous union in her delightful tale. (Jun., 224 pp., $4.99)
