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.

Received for Review (From Author)

I enjoyed this book. I love Aunt Gwen and her friends from the novella, “How to Stop a Wedding in 7 Days or Less”. I like Derek Saunders and his stepbrother Percival very much. Derek is a good man and trying to help his aunt with her somewhat fraudulent Lady Travelers Society and Assistance Agency. When India Prendergast threatens legal action for misleading her missing cousin Heloise, he decides to stall her by taking her to Paris to look for Heloise.

India is a hard heroine to like at first impression. As I read further, I started thinking about her living at a school as her parents travelled the world until their deaths, no relations but her older cousin and working as a secretary/assistant to make a living. Her life had not been easy and she protected herself with a hard shell.

While stalling her in Paris, they look for her cousin but Derek insists on her seeing the sights as well. Between her maid, her travelling companions and his mother she begins to look and feel better. She is enjoying the sightseeing as she falls in love with Derek. I enjoyed the descriptions of Paris and the new Eiffel Tower.

You’ll have to read this to find out where Heloise was when India, Derek and others were looking for her. I won’t spoil the many wonderful and sometimes funny things happening in this book. I don’t like to ruin the story as I hope you’ll read it. It is a very enjoyable read. Thank you Victoria Alexander for sending me an ARC.
