When A Lady Misbehaves book.

Michelle Marcos is impressive in her debut. Marcos is a good writer with a lot of natural talent. Her first book was fabulous. The characters in When A Lady Misbehaves are complex and immensely fascinating, the story is imaginative, and the plotting is excellent. While all of the above distract greatly from a good story and a lot of well written humor, it's still better than a lot of other books. So I'll be patient with Marcos and keep an eye out for her books.

When a lady Misbehaves...I originally picked this book because of Lisa Kleypas' endorsement but it was not what I was expecting. I usually think giving a book a three star is a cop out. I feel you either like it or not, but this book is confusing so I had to give it a three star (yes I copped out). I did like the unique idea of the story line, but alot of the book really left me wanting something more. The idea of a common born lady striving for a better life, especially having the other option to sell her body, was a really good concept. I like a strong heroine that puts her future in her own hands no matter what it takes but the book fell short with many of the scenes being unrealistic. Here are some of the issues I had with this book:
First April was a liar, how Riley ever could see her inner qualities is beyond me, because throughout the book April was a mean, selfish, and amoral girl. The only insight was her admission of wanting to be included in the family but actions speak louder than words and most of her actions were not one of a nice person. Second, how did she become proficient in shooting archery after ONE short lesson? Or became a sufficient horsewoman after ONE gallop (bareback mind you) through the woods to be able go on a hunt? These types of scenes made the book unrealistic. April's behavior towards her best friend was awful. April's immaturity through most of the book was kind of embarrassing. Third, when did Riley decide he loved her. Here is where I felt the storyline was rushed, I didn't feel him fall in love with her. It was like he woke up one morning and he loved her.

With that said there were some really good parts, the one that sticks out is when Riley confronts April and says he knows they are not related then kisses her and says that is how he knows. I also enjoyed the Agatha, she made a great villain and her chemistry with Northam was perfect.

I did finish this book, but found myself skimming the pages. This is her debut and there is potential there, I just hope her next books (which I bought because of Lisa's endorsement) are better. If this book would have not been so unrealistic it would have been pretty good. But as is falls short.

I did not want to like the main character April - she lies, she breaks people hearts but you end up cheering for her in the end. April wants to be a duchess but she is actual a kitchen main in a brothel. She told she will either be out the streets or she will be auctioned off a virgin and start working a prostitute. With decision over her head she finds her bosses diary and sets off to blackmail some rich men by pretending to be their daughter. As all plans go this one was going well until she showed up on Lord Blackheath door and then everything unraveled and a delicious way.... Enjoy!

This book is written in the days of the Dukes, Duchesses and
Lords and Ladies-they are very romantic and can be very sensual but not in
a disgusting way-the author describes the romance between the characters so precisely that you can picture them as if you were part of the book-very capitivating!

April Jardine is a maid at the Pleasure Emporium, a famous London brothel. Informed by the Madame that she is worth more to the business if she auctions off her virginity, and then works as a lady of the night, April turns to blackmail to make her living. Armed with Madame's diary, she finds the men listed and tells them she is their daughter, trying to insinuate herself into their lives. The men offer her money to disappear.

That is until she tries her scheme with the Duke of Westbrook. The Duke is not at home, but son, Jeremy, welcomes her with open arms. His oldest son, Riley, Lord Blackheath, is not so welcoming, though.

Riley, a circuit judge, is not convinced as his brother and father are that April is the Duke's daughter. While the others welcome her with open arms he seeks to find out the truth. The more time he spends with her, though, the more attracted he becomes to her.

What April doesn't realize, though, is that her arrival at the Duke's household has set off a firestorm of gossip, and the family's reputation can only be saved with her marriage to Riley. Can these two people from opposite sides of the spectrum find love, or are they doomed by society's conventions?

When a Lady Misbehaves was a fun tale with an interesting plot. I have to admit that at first I didn't care for April, whom I found to be a little selfish, especially in her dealings with her friend Jenny. But by the end of the book she had grown and that redeemed her in my eyes. Riley, on the other hand, is delicious. I loved his character and his take-charge attitude. I did have a little problem with his quick about-face where April was concerned. I felt like he would have thought things out just a little more.

There were a few "hum" moments for me, including the misuse of a legal term that made me blink twice and head for a dictionary to check the term probate, but all in all, When A Lady Misbehaves is good fun. Ms. Marcos has crafted a tale that kept me turning pages, especially the final ones, late into the night. This is Ms. Marcos' first book, and I think the series has promise. This is a sweet tale with lots of intrigue, for those who enjoy historicals. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
