Duke of Manhattan
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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 standalone, contemporary romance.
Fell hard for Ryder!
Everytime I read a book by Louise Bay, I think how much I love it. The Duke of Manhattan has topped all of the others! I completely fell head over heals for Ryder and Scarlett. I loved how Ryder who never wanted anymore more than one night, was at a complete loss after spending time with Scarlett. He didn't want to be without her. Scarlett tried so hard not to fall for Ryder knowing that there was an expiration date, but there was so much between them. Not just the hot nights, but the nights they spent talking and sharing things. Louise Bay does such a great job with giving her characters depth and making them well rounded. I loved watching Ryder panic as he found out what being in love truly was about and the fact that he might not get Scarlett back. It was an emotion that he had never felt and Louise painted it perfectly. Of course, I loved seeing the rest of the gang (Violet, Harper, Max, Sam and Grace). Such a great read! I absolutely loved it!
once again, louise makes me fall in love with words again. her words. this woman has the ability to make me devour a book! i become a deeper and deeper fan with every word. i fall in love with every character she brings to life. thanks louise.
5 MUST READ STARS!!
This book reaffirms why it is that Louise Bay is by far one of my favorite authors. Her characters never fail to have every quality that delivers a brilliant storyline, Ryder Westbury and Scarlett King are absolutely not the exception.
I just finished reading this book not 5 minutes ago, and my cheeks hurt from smiling so big.
"Whatever it is that you're afraid of, I'll stand between you and it my whole life."
Seriously?! My heart panged when I read this line. I felt all giddy and swoony as if he had said it to me. It's ridiculous, really. I mean how can you fall in love with a fictional character? HA!
For real though, this book had it all, laughter, a little sadness and a lot of HOLY HOT SEX!
I also loved that I got to catch up with the whole gang in to epilogue.
Well done Ms. Bay, I'm impressed.
