About the book:
Embark on the breathtaking romantic adventures of The Lady Travelers Society in the brand-new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander

Really, it’s too much to expect any normal man to behave like a staid accountant in order to inherit the fortune he deserves to support the lifestyle of an earl. So when Derek Saunders’s favorite elderly aunt and her ill-conceived—and possibly fraudulent—Lady Travelers Society loses one of their members, what’s a man to do but step up to the challenge? Now he’s escorting the world’s most maddening woman to the world’s most romantic city to find her missing relative.

While India Prendergast only suspects his organization defrauds gullible travelers, she’s certain a man with as scandalous a reputation as Derek Saunders cannot be trusted any farther than the distance around his very broad shoulders. As she struggles not to be distracted by his wicked smile and the allure of Paris, instead of finding a lost lady traveler, India just may lose her head, her luggage and her heart.

My thoughts:
I enjoyed going on a trip to 1800s Paris with this author and her fun cast of characters. The author did a good job of describing the scenes. Her characters were well developed and I enjoyed getting to know India and Derek. When I first met India I did not not her but as the book went on I came to really like her. Some of it was after you learned what she went through in her life then you realize she is how she is because of it. It was fun to go along on the relationship journey with India and Derek. It was interesting to learn about the Lady Traveler's Society. I am looking forward to more books in this series to see what happens with the Traveler's Society.

  1. India at the beginning of the book isn't exactly pleasant but she definitely improves as a character the longer the story progresses!

    Thanks for being a part of the tour!
