Image of Miss Lavigne's Little White Lie (Beau Monde)

Gifted writer Grace just misses the mark with the third in her Beau Monde Bachelor series. The characters are colorful, the research on target, but the plot contains few surprises, with a desperate heroine and a rogue captain traveling from New Orleans to London.

Lisette Lavigne runs away before her wedding, before her fiancé can commit her brother to an asylum for his inheritance. Captain Daniel Hillary is willing to give passage to the curvy “widow” in return for her companionship during the voyage. A deal is struck, but Daniel proves a gentleman. Lisette is far from safe with a madman in hot pursuit, and though Daniel marries her to protect her, she is still a target. The newlyweds reach London safely but are met by peril.
