Destitute and alone, Mina Halliday ventured into a notorious bordello and offered the only talents at her disposal—her writing skill and her scandalous imagination.

And uncovering the truth about the woman who stirs his deepest desires will be his most dangerous adventure yet…

“When I want a great historical romance, I’ll reach for anything by Michelle Marcos!”—Lisa Kleypas
“Marcos delivers a refreshing, creative take on the typical Regency, carried by the spirited heroine and buoyed throughout by lively plot twists.” —Publishers Weekly on When A Lady Misbehaves
“Her heroine is a spunky delight, and her dark, hostile hero is an ideal foil...Marcos displays talents that are sure to grow with each new title." --Romantic Times
“The first in a bold and original new series by a bold and creative new voice in the romance world. Michelle Marcos is impressive in her debut. The characters in When A Lady Misbehaves are complex and immensely fascinating, the story is imaginative, and the plotting is excellent. Ms. Marcos makes some clever twists on the traditional romance…Marcos is an author to take note of.” —Romance Reviews Today
“This rags- to-riches story by debut author [Marcos] absolutely sizzles. When A Lady Misbehaves is beautifully done and I highly recommend it.” —Fresh Fiction
