Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay Release Date: May 16th Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

Another fantastic book by this author. It told the story of a British aristocrat who prefers to rule the boardrooms of Manhattan and has never been particularly interested in inheriting the title that should rightfully be his. To become the next Duke he'd have to be married and that's not in his plans. But finding out his empire is at risk changes things for him. Now marriage is a must and the only woman who makes sense for him is his feisty one night stand Scarlett.
This was fantastic couple. I loved them both in their own ways. Ryder might have been a player when he met Scarlett but he was honest about it and I could appreciate that. But of course she was his game changer. Scarlett on the other hand was dealing with financial and career drama on top of emotional baggage from a failed marriage. The last thing she wanted was Ryder, except their chemistry was off the charts and the more time they spent together you could just feel the ease and comfort between them.
I got some laughs, some emotion, great leading and secondary characters, a revisit with characters from past books, and over all the romance I crave. This was a winner for me and I look forward to experiencing more from this author in future.
