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 now LIVE!
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read.

The novels and together the series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.

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!

What can I say about this one other than it was an incredibly good read. It was well written and nicely paced. It was sweet. It had angst. It had no OW/OM drama. It had great secondary characters (even a few glimpses of characters from past books). It had smokin’ sex scenes. It had a sweet and totally charming heroine. It had an equally likable and hot hero. All wrapped up with a cherry on top epilogue.
It was ALMOST a 5-Star read for me. Alas, it did suffer (a lot) from one of my pet peeves. The constant comparisons to other women or exes. This book was RIFE with that. I don’t think we could go more than a few pages without Ryder making a comparison to how it was with OW or Scarlett comparing it to her ex-husband. I thought to myself if this had been one of those drinking games where someone had to take a shot every time one of them compared something to one of his OW or her EX I would have been drunk under the table half way through this book!
Like I said though that is just a personal annoyance for me and it just made me roll my eyes more than anything. It was still an amazingly good book despite that. So two thumbs up from yours truly.
