 Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.

Freddie Lovel, Hale's wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau's, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.

Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.

Character Interview: Beauregard Faire

By Leigh Talbert Moore

I managed to get Beau to sit down and talk to us today. He’s in my new book Rouge (link), and he’s working constantly now that he’s got a promise to keep. For the first time in his life, he’s become very focused. (Of course, he’s from pre-Internet times, so we might have to explain things.)

LTM: Hi, Beau! Thanks for answering some questions for us today!
Beau: Who’s us?

LTM: The blog readers. They read about you in Rouge and want to know you better.
Beau: What’s a blog?

LTM: Nevermind. Forget all that. So! That’s some name you got there, Beauregard Faire. Is that after a relative?
Beau: Don’t know. My dad died before I could ask him. But you can just call me Beau. “Beauregard” sounds like a cotton baron or something, which I’m not.

LTM: But you have picked cotton back when you lived on the farm. You told Hale that.
Beau: Yeah, but only when absolutely necessary. I did more of the heavy lifting.

LTM: So I see… (*eyes hot bod*) Anyhoo! Tell us about Hale!
Beau: It’s hard for me to talk about her right now.

LTM: But you’re in love with her, right?
Beau: I asked her to marry me.

LTM: She didn’t say no…
Beau: Things are complicated.

LTM: What do you like most about her?
Beau: Well, she’s beautiful, of course. The first time I saw her, I could hardly form a decent sentence.

LTM: I know. What else?
Beau: She’s an amazing singer, and she’s not a bad dancer even though she thinks she is. She’s really sweet to Christina…

LTM: You mean Teeny?
Beau: She doesn’t like that nickname. But yeah. Hale would do anything for her, but she’s just so stubborn. I hate it when she keeps me out. I know there’s a lot she’s not telling me, and I don’t know how to make her open up.

LTM: I think it was very cool how you saved her life. Were you scared to reach out and grab the rope when she fell?
Beau: No. I didn’t even think about it. I just saw her falling, and it was the only way I could stop it. It did shred my hands, though.

LTM: Your hands take a beating in this story. So what’s it like working in a theater? Do you like being part of a musical production?
Beau: Oh, yeah. It’s something I never thought I’d do, but it’s exactly the type of life I was looking for when I left Ascension.

LTM: You were looking for adventure—wine, women, and song—and I’d say you found it!
Beau: I wasn’t looking for something like this. I mean, I wanted to have fun and, yeah, meet women and be carefree, but Hale changed all that.

LTM: So how many dancers did you, umm, “meet” before you and Hale got together?
Beau: It was just one! I told Hale that…

LTM: OK, I’m sorry. Bad subject. So what are you most looking forward to in the sequel?
Beau: What?

LTM: Nevermind, Let’s play “This or That.” Like I’ll say two things and you tell me which you prefer. For example, Pencil or Pen.
Beau: I can’t afford a pen. Unless you count the cloisonné pen Hale gave me. It was her father’s.

LTM: Right. Sorry. Umm… Chicken or tacos?
Beau: What’s a taco?

LTM: Ebooks or paper?
Beau: What’s an ebook?

LTM: *sigh* Forget it. Thanks for stopping to chat with us today! I think a lot of ladies have a crush on you right now. Possibly even this one. *bats lashes*
Beau: Oh, well, you have… interesting hair.

LTM: *blushes* You think so? *smoothes frizz* You’re just being sweet. Like always. It’s OK. I know you’ve only got eyes for Hale. But you do look great in a suit.
Beau: It’s part of my job.

LTM: Yes it is…

That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know Beau a little better! If you have any questions for him, leave them in the comments section, and I’ll see if I can get the answer for you.

Thanks for having us here today!
