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.

The beginning was so very frustrating.  
I liked the storyline, but until like 60% I hated every single character in the book!
It took awhile to read this book for many reasons.  I wanted to give up, but I saw the potential in it.
This book turned out ok not a highly recommend must read right now!

 43.0% "This is taking forever. The story is good, but the characters are awful.
The only character that I can stand is Mrs. Greer.
India is beyond annoying with her holy-than-thou attitude. Yet, everyone she is in company with is higher-ranked than her. She needs a big reality check and I think she is getting just that!
Derek, will we shall see. His cousin, whom they are currently staying with, he needs a good smack"
