Gentlemen Behaving Badly

Pleasure Emporium

Michelle Marcos

St. Martin's Paperbacks

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. Mina’s erotic letters have enticed London’s wealthiest noblemen to the Pleasure Emporium, but her real goal is to find the person responsible for her father’s ruin. Even if that means defying the orders of Chief Constable Salter Lambrick, a man who makes her feel like a wanton seductress instead of a plain-faced wallflower.

The only clue Salter has to a government official’s murder is the naughty invitation found in the victim’s pocket, leading him to the most intriguing woman he has ever met. Mina may be an innocent in a den of lust, but Salter detects the sensuality beneath her surface. And uncovering the truth about the woman who stirs his deepest desires will be his most dangerous adventure yet…

Praise for Gentlemen Behaving Badly

Praise for Michelle Marcos:

“When I want a great historical romance, I’ll reach for anything by Michelle Marcos!”—Lisa Kleypas

"Strong chemistry and eroticism...A thoroughly enjoyable story with all the elements that romance lovers want.  There is mystery, suspense, humor and above all, love.  I look forward to the next book in this series!" --The Road to Romance

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
