I love it when the Dedicated Bachelor fallsI knew that Scarlett s book was going to be good even before I met Ryder Funny thing is that I kind of read Scarlett wrong when I met her previously I thought she was a serial dater who liked variety in her men I may have even been a bit mean and thought she got sick of her husband, so divorced him Holy heck, I got her SOOOO wrong She was almost the complete opposite of that Imagine my surprise when she decides to have her first one night stand in front [...]

4.5 The Right Duchess Stars ARC provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.As always, Louise Bay comes back with a great love story and a great list of characters those swoony heroes and sassy heroines This series of standalones have stolen my heart and Duke of Manhattan was quite a special one too Let s see why So, Duke of Manhattan can be read as a standalone novel but I highly recommend reading King of Wall Street and Park Avenue Prince to enjoy this even [...]

This is totes amazing Definitely the best out of the three I ve read.
4 Stars I really, really liked this book It s actually kind of surprising just how much I loved it This was just what I needed after all the heavy, intense books I read last month This was fun, sexy and it may be my fave book in the series so far.Ryder and Scarlett s chemistry was so hot and realistic I fell in love with these characters This was a charming read that s perfect if you need something that s light on angst and romantic.
I need a wife and I think you might be the woman for the job.I truly enjoyed this modern fairytale It is a funny, quick paced, sexy, and romantic story.Obviously from the title, it is about a Duke with a pending title that he may or may not inherit it and the story takes place in New York If you also notice the bookcover and the British flag, you will definitely understand that part of the story takes place in U.K.Ryder Westbury is an aristocrat, a businessman, a playboy but also deep down a rea [...]

4.25 stars.Well, I do believe the King may have lost his crown to the Duke I was pretty excited to read Duke of Manhattan largely down to the fact that I am a total sucker for modern day English aristocracy in a romance In otherwords, I love me a dirty duke And Louise Bay delivers good sex makes everything a little bit better Charming, wealthy and a self confessed one night only type of guy, Ryder Westbury is as strong willed in business as he is in the bedroom something Scarlett King soon disco [...]
This one started really good and funny I liked Scarlett she wanted to prove to her ex she isn t boring and wanted to complete something on her own When she is relaxing from a day work she meets Ryder, she is trying to flirt but with Ryder there is no need to try He can flirt for the both of them.I really enjoyed this journey there was a lot less drama than I expected What is a plus, I like my drama but sometimes a bit less is This read was really relaxing and had a bit of funny moments, Ryder i [...]
Who is this Louise Bay and where the HELL has she been all my life I absolutely LOVE finding new to me authors I love immersing myself in a brand new romance, and it ending up knocking my socks off DUKE OF MANHATTAN was recommended to me from a fellow blogger and the first thing that caught my eye was of course, the sexy suit porn on the book cover I might be in the minority here, but I may prefer a sexy man in a well fitted suit rather than yards and yards of pecs on my book covers And then cam [...]
Love Ryder.I was looking forward to this book once I knew it was goin to have Scarlett in it I ve been dying for her story once I got to know her a little in King of Wall Street Which is a great book by the way Scarlett was just brilliant in this book She s funny sexy and can be sassy at times Her confidence isn t sky high but she knows how to handle herself Scarlett loves her family they mean everything to her Her life has been a little up and down over the last few years with things that has h [...]

I loved this story Scarlett and Ryder s journey is a whirlwind of emotions,hot sex and witty banters.I was glued to the pages from their first encounter to their arranged marriage, I was curious to know how it would end.This couple is definitely one of my Louise Bay s favoriteybe because our Brit Duke is an assertive dirty talker during sexy times and our heroine is so strong willed and confident about her work.Everything flow effortlessly thanks to the brilliant writing,I highly recommend this [...]
Damn good More to come.
Entretenida, con los clich s habituales, con un protagonista adorable, me encantan las historias con matrimonios por conveniencia.
