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.

There is one romance troupe I love above the rest and that is the one night stand that comes back to bit you on the a$$ and Louise Bay delivered big time in The Duke of Manhattan right along with the fake engagement troupe as well. I loved this story, in that the heroine was still reeling from her marriage falling apart, the hero is a playboy who has no intentions of settling down ever, and a one night stand leads to so much more. Entertaining, insightful, fun, and sexy, The Duke of Manhattan was a joy to read.

Ryder Westbury loves his life in Manhattan and has worked hard at being his own man, as his grandfather’s health declines he must face the facts that unless he marries, he stands to lose everything he’s worked so hard to accomplish.

Scarlett King loves the company she founded with her friend following her divorce, but the need to expand leaves them strapped for cash and stressed out, so when her sister suggests she blow off some steam and pop her post divorce cherry she never expects her one night stand to be the man she must face in the boardroom the next day.

This book made me laugh, it made me sigh, it made me cry and it made me so damn happy. Their journey wasn’t easy and there were times when I felt so bad for both Ryder and Scarlett and their situation, but at the same time they were so good for one another. I enjoyed watching Ryder figure out how much he enjoyed the time he spent with Scarlett and how important she became to him and I appreciated that Scarlett understood his predicament and despite her misgivings wanted to do everything possible to help him with his situation because she knew his family was the most important thing in the world to him.

Swoon worthy, exciting and enjoyable, the Duke of Manhattan was a modern day fairy tale with a twist!
