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.
USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series, What the Lightning Sees and Calling Me. The novels and together the series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
I am one ooey-gooey smitten momma. I loved the Duke of Manhattan. Page after page was filled with the romantic goodness I crave every time I pick up a new book.
Ryder is British royalty. But to inherit his title and everything that goes with it, he needs a wife. This might not be a problem for some – just find a women and make a deal. Fulfill the requirement. However, he’s built his own legacy and wealth so when his grandfather dies, he’s prepared to walk away from it all.
It’s really simple in his mind – that is until one small detail creates a major glitch in his plan and Ryder cannot find away around it.
Enter Scarlett. She thought she had the fairy tale but got knocked on her butt and lost it all, so now she wants to concentrate on her new dream. She wants to take her company to the next level. There is only one problem, the company who wants to partner with her doesn’t want to give into her demands.
These two meet and don’t even realize their worlds are connected. All they know is the lust and sexual chemistry that they feel for one another. It leads to an extraordinary night, that has both characters wanting more than they ever thought would be possible.
Their courtship and all the drama that goes along with it AMAZING storytelling. It’s a passionate love story that consumed me. I stayed up all night with Ryder and Scarlett. So my recommendation is that you purchase this book. I promise you will find yourself smiling and swooning just a few chapters in.
