Duke of Manhattan is a standalone romance, but for fans of Louise Bay you will recognise some characters from both King of Wall Street and Prince of Park Avenue. If you haven’t read these books though, no worries, you will still enjoy this brilliant read.
Scarlett is feeling the desperate need to move on with her life. Only in her 20’s, she is still reeling from her divorce 2 years ago from her childhood sweetheart. It blindsided her and changed her whole life and the direction she thought she was going in. So it is her work life that is giving her the most happiness at the moment. Being part of the success of Cecily Fragrance has really helped distract her. But it is a man she now wants, even if it feels a little odd. She knows she needs to just get back on the saddle and maybe a one night stand just might give her what she needs to take the next step in life.
Ryder is a big fish; not just in the business world of Manhattan, but also in his native England. He is the heir to the Duke of Fairfax title, if he decides he is to marry; something that is never ever going to happen. Variety is the spice of life, especially his sex life, and he has made his own millions he doesn’t need to inherit them. But life is never that easy. So when Ryder’s hard earned empire comes under threat, then a wife might be the only option left.
1 very hot night + 1 unwanted business proposition = A deal that might work for both of them… If only life was that simple.
WOOHOO!!! OMG, I seriously loved this book!
My love for Louise Bay books started with the King of Wall Street. I fell in love with that book and have gone on to read her full back catalogue since then. I have to say, there isn’t one book that I haven’t enjoyed of hers, but KOWS has always been my favourite… until now. I am not going to say any more about the storyline, but it is one of those stories that I struggled to put down. I loved watching them both get over their hang-ups and they seriously made the pages sizzle.
For me this book is Louise Bay at her best. Full of angst, with bites of humour and lots of steam, it also has a real sweetness about it. You will love Scarlett and absolutely adore Ryder. But are they destined to become the Duke and Duchess of Fairfax? Well I will leave you to find that out for yourself. I just hope that we get a couple more stories; Violet and Darcy both need to find their perfect men.
Another MUST READ from a really talented storyteller.
