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.

What a great read, couldn't put it down,finished it at 3am.❤️
Really enjoyed this story nice to see a man weak at the knees. Would love Darby and Violets story.
Brilliant Standalone Romance
Duke of Manhattan is a standalone but a few characters do pop up from King of Wall Street and Prince of Park Avenue in saying that I really don't think it matters if this is your first book by Louise Bay, it's still a brilliant read.
Scarlett married young and divorced young, at only 20 she is trying to get on with her life and put her bad breakup from her childhood sweetheart behind her. Work is her saviour and the success of Cecily Fragrances has become the most important thing in her life.
Ryder is British but his life and his business is in Manhattan, he is heir to the Duke of Fairfax title buts it's a title and a job he doesn't want, for him his older sister who is helps their grandfather run the estate should be the natural heir. He needs to marry to stop the estate going to a cousin ......
A night of passion turns into a business proposal but is that all it is or will true love win the day.
I love Louise Bay's book and for me this was the best one to date, her books seem to get better and better with each one I read. The stories are hot, the characters have chemistry and there is always some humour mixed with just the right amount of angst.
I really hope we get to read Violet and Darcy's stories soon as they both need a Louise Bay man in their life's. This is a must read book
