I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.
Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me--if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.
Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted-- so I need a wife.
To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.
The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .
The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .
The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .
It all helps me forget.
I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.
She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.
A sexy, standalone romance.

The DUKE OF MANHATTAN is another Louise Bay release that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with. Forget the marriage of convenience plot, it’s the hero and heroine that had me eagerly turning the pages hoping they both figured out what was clear from the very beginning.
Ryder Westbury stood to lose everything he’d worked for if he didn’t find someone to be his fake wife. Scarlett King was on the verge of losing everything she’s built up during the last two years if she didn’t find someone to help bail her company out. As you can guess, an unlikely bargain is started.
What I liked most about this story was the fact that Ryder and Scarlett didn’t shy away from their fake married life. They had previous carnal knowledge of each other before their wedding, so they didn’t pretend like they didn’t burn up the sheets together. Instead, sex lead to intimacy between the two of them. True friendship and love grew from that intimacy, without either of them realizing it, they had a real relationship.
I’ve adored the connected books to this one, but Ryder and Scarlett’s story has been my favorite. Louise Bay is one of my go-to authors and the DUKE OF MANHATTAN is definitely one readers will want to pick up this summer.
