About The Book:

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.

My Review:

Duke of ManhattanDuke of Manhattan by Louise Bay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay is the third standalone book that follows the same group of friends introduced in King of Wall Street and Park Avenue Prince. It is a sexy romance with plenty of angst and heartwarming moments. Jumping between New York and London as background settings, it is magically crafted and a thorough pleasure to read.

Ryder's beloved grandfather is the Duke of Fairfax. Due to some stodgy old laws, despite being the best choice and of direct lineage he will not inherent when his grandfather passes away due to his unmarried status. This has never been a bother to him until he learns of a small misstep with epically horrible consequences should he NOT inherit the title. He needs a wife and he needs one now. But he doesn't want to settle down OR break anyone's heart - he needs this to be a business arrangement.

Scarlett is divorced and forging her own way in life now. With her business partner by her side they have a tough decision ahead of them. Sell out their business to repay the loans and make a huge profit from it or risk going under in order to retain ownership and decision making rights. When a business proposition from the one man that has the power to save or sink her company has her wondering if he is certifiable for asking and if she is for considering his "proposal" all bets are off when she says yes.

I love this story so hard. Ryder was amazing - he didn't know what he was missing staying single and separate from any woman in his life until he met Scarlett - The wedding was a bonus that forced him to spend the time to realize what he truly wanted. Scarlett had to let go of her past pain and issues from her first marriage in order to truly feel settled with Ryder. It was a wonderful, and sometimes painful, journey for the both of them and as for myself as the reader. Enjoy!
