Sometimes the best things come from unexpected places . . .
Raised in the privileged world of Upper East Side Manhattan, Violet Townsend always says the right things, wears the right clothes, and never rocks the boat. So when a friend of her beloved grandmother asks Violet to teach her newly discovered grandson how to fit in with the city's elite, Violet immediately agrees. Her task? To prepare Cain Stone to take his place as heir to his family company . . . but he's not exactly an eager student.
Born and raised in rural Louisiana, Cain is only playing along for the payout at the end. He's not interested in a relationship with the grandmother he just met and has no patience for the uppity Violet's attempts to turn him into a suit-wearing, museum-attending gentleman.
But somewhere between antagonistic dinner parties and tortured tux fittings, Cain and Violet begin to find a begrudging respect for each other - and perhaps even something more.
'Witty banter, a "phew, that's hot" romance and the author's adept ability to bring her characters and their experiences off the page and into your life. New York's never felt more real than it does in Layne's Made in Manhattan' USA Today

Layne (To Sir, with Love) brings a light touch to this delightful, gender-swapped My Fair Lady tale in which the city itself is a nuanced character. Manhattan socialite Violet Townsend occupies herself with charity engagements, volunteer work, and helping family friend Edith Rhodes, the soon-to-be retired CEO of a global conglomerate, to manage her daily affairs. It all fills her time, but it doesn't fill her heart, something she only discovers after meeting Edith's long-lost grandson, Cain Stone, who's poised to inherit Edith's company. Rough-around-the-edges Cain is already well established in New Orleans, and he's not super interested in getting the polish Edith and Violet think he needs to please the company's board of directors. As Violet takes him under her wing, she learns that under his gruff exterior lies sweetness and charm. Their growing connection combined with Cain's kindness to Violet's dog is sure to tug readers' heartstrings. Layne has a skill for building unique heroines, and Violet, who has anxiety about expressing herself stemming from losing her family at a young age, adds depth to this contemporary. Layne's fans are sure to be pleased. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, the Seymour Agency.
