Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay
Release Date: May 16th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Duke of Manhattan, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay is available now!!!
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.

What’s a duke to do when he finds himself in need of a duchess? Just one in name only, mind you, long enough to secure his empire, and keep things just the way that they are, thank you very much. If it’s Ryder Westbury, Duke of Fairfax, and New York royalty, he seeks solace in the arms of an unknown lovely, and vows to think about it tomorrow. Scarlett King, sister of the the Max King, is a capable businesswoman in her own right, but those pesky loans coming due are making the future look a little less than bright. Add to that the fact that she can’t find a man that keeps her interest for more than one date, and, well, a girls’ night out seems just the thing to take her mind off things. Who knew that a one night stand could change two lives so completely?
Oh, my gosh, this book. I’m pretty sure that I say that each successive man in Louise Bay’s books is my favorite, but Ryder Westbury has literally stolen the crown. Funny, sexy, and unabashedly single, the last thing on Ryder’s mind is getting married and settling down, even if it’s the only way to keep the family estate in the capable hands of his sister, and his business in his own hands. What to do, what to do? Enter one Scarlett King.
I cannot express how much I love Scarlett. She’s had a less than stellar experience at love, and is pretty sure that she’s never going to meet another man that will make her heart sing. She’s hardly expecting that a passionate night with the über-sexy Ryder Westbury will change the course of her life. But, oh, how he does.
These two are perfect for each other. Ryder, playboy player that he is, has a kind heart, a deep love of his family, and just the right amount of snark to keep things interesting. Scarlett is more than able to hold her own with him, and her sass, sparkle, and innate kindness show Ryder just what he’s been missing.
Louise’s books have long been some of my favorites, but I can easily say that DUKE OF MANHATTAN is leading the pack, and definitely one of my top romantic reads of 2017. There is not one bit of this story that I did not find myself loving, and getting to see old friends and favorites made it even more enjoyable. I know a book is a winner when I find myself saying, ‘I am just absolutely loving reading this!’ over and over again, and when I can’t put it down. DUKE OF MANHATTAN wins on both counts, and I couldn’t recommend it more. 5 sexy, sweet, HEA stars for Scarlett and Ryder. If you’re a fan of Louise, you truly don’t want to miss this one, and, if you don’t know Louise Bay and her writing yet, this one will make you a fan for sure.
