Trying to remember a novel I read that sort of had Betty Page and HP Lovecraft in it

A few years ago I borrowed a book from the library that had three main (possibly point of view) characters - a model / aspiring actress that was basically Betty Page (without using her name), a pulp horror / science-fiction writer who I seem to remember being slightly similar to HP Lovecraft and a youngish gangster-like character (if that was based on somebody famous I didn't recognise them). Plot-wise I can only remember the gangster and non-Betty eventually had some sort of romance - yes there were a couple of 'physical' scenes involving bondage but they weren't very graphic. It was a paperback with a purpleish plain cover with a little icon of the Betty Page character I had to keep my thumb over when I read in on the train/bus if that helps. Ring any bells?
