First time I paid any attentions to our hero was in the scene in which Jake, his brother, walks in on him while he `had his butter churned'! Well, how can I not be interested in a man like that and in a woman that would bring him to heel?
As the story opens, we follow our heroine Lisette Lavigne as she escapes her fiancé in the middle of the night, with her family in tow and in a search of Captain Daniel Hillary, who she hopes will take them to England and to safety.
Captain Daniel Hillary is drop dead gorges and a scoundrel who loves two simple pleasures in life, a woman's supple curves and his Indiaman ship, not necessarily in that order.

This is the second book I've read in this series and it is was even better than I expected. I loved the characters and the unexpected twist at the end. I loved the character of BeBe as well.

Can't wait to read Daniel's story.
It's official. After the third installment of the Beau Monde series, author Samantha Grace has proven it's impossible for her to disappoint. MISS LAVIGNE'S LITTLE WHITE LIE is a dazzling historical romance!
After Lisette Lavigne's dangerous fiancé threatens to lock her brother in an asylum, she will do anything to leave her beloved New Orleans. Running to England is not an ideal situation, but Lisette needs to protect herself and her brother at any cost. When she meets the handsome Captain Daniel Hillary, she thinks her prayers are answered, but she is shocked when he won't allow women on board his ship.
Since he is the only one leaving for England tomorrow, Lisette realizes a few little lies might help secure their passage...such as promising to warm the Captain's bed. Now that they are on their way, Lisette's lies start to unravel around her. While Lisette knows it would be best to ignore Daniel, she can't seem to stay away. With danger following her...
