Yet again, I am impressed by Michelle Marcos. Her heroines are unique and so are her heroes, for that matter. In this book, her H/H are both common folk, which is refreshing for historical romance. Mina is a plain erotic writer for a bordello, who is trying to find the man who framed her father for jewelry theft. Her seductive letter ends up drawing in Salter, the chief constable, who is investigating the death of a man to whom the letter is addressed to. Their relationship starts with some mist [...]
Mina Halliday has quite a way with words and she uses her naughty talents as a source of income after her father is arrested and sent to Australia. She uses her job as a letter writer at the Pleasure Emporium to try and lure certain men to the bordello where she will have her courtesan friends try and sex any pertinent information out of them. One such naughty letter lands in the hands of Constable Salter Lambrick and since it's the only clue in a high profile murder case, he goes undercover and [...]
If nothing else, I should keep it for the cover alone (forget his chest--look at the lips on that guy)!
Micheklle Marcos is awesome. If you haven't read this book or the other book in this series it is well worth the read:)
Would you expect a book of Godly and respectable characters? Well there's a big to-do in the beginning - a promise of dark and edgy desires. Then the heroine saves herself for marriage. At the end. Of the book. After the first 50 pages it's all about the poor wallflower's low self-esteem and how the "hero" has incredible insight to her feelings. It's a big tease opening. The rest is a huge let-down. Plot included. The characters are unreal and lack any depth. The plot involving the girl's father [...]
Loved it. All the kinks from When A Lady Misbehaves were completely ironed out in this one.I rarely say this about any series because (view spoiler)[when side character become main characters and vice versa your books are not stand alone, no matter how separate the plots are and I do feel I've missed out if I don't read it in the right order/ (hide spoiler)] BUT Gentlemen Behaving Badly abso-positi-lutely stands alone from When a Lady Misbehaves the characters do not cross over at all, in fact t [...]
Couldn't finish it.It has an interesting premise though--a smart girl in a brothel writing letters to lure gentlemen to the establishment. One in particular she wants to meet because he seems responsible for her father being arrested and shipped off to the colonies. Her love interest is the constable investigating the murder of said gentleman.The whole thing goes off the tracks pretty quickly. The author keeps our heroine pure by making her the barkeep in the brothel, even though she has a colle [...]
I felt like the book should have been Women Behaving Badly. Mina was overly violent and stubborn to a fault. However, I like that the book centered around women in a bordello, a unique twist. But Salter? Beautiful man. Favorite quote: "You are a bit like that painting Minnow. Remember how lovingly and carefully formed you are. Your thoughts, your talents they all make the complete canvs of you. Even though others may mistake your worth, you must never value yourself any less."
grr the cover kills, just kills me Okay, I will admit that I purchased this one solely on the cover can you blame me?? But, I was quite impressed Great story and I loved Salter he was great he was cocky I love the part in the bathes oh how confident you are of yourself Salter delicious!!
I am sorry to say that there is reason this book was so cheap.It was truly awful.Sorry
at first this book seemed to be just plain predictable. but the plot twisted and I enjoyed myself as Mina and Salter discovered each other and the fiend was caught.
This was a fun read, the whole story from start to finish is engaging, fun, quick paced and lots of tension and interesting situations. A great read.
It was ok not a lot of romance
