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.

Bay did it again with her hot, successful go-getters down in New York, and this time she’s got an English muffin for our tea time. HA. Cheesy lines aside, I absolutely loved this, and wasn’t surprised that it was great. Bay’s writing is a clean style that makes me forget I’m reading, and with the romantic drama, I’m never left unsatisfied. Her characters Scar and Ryder had chemistry, and though total opposites, they had a knack for soothing the other and making them forget as well that everything was just… a business transaction. At least it was supposed to be, until it got hard to tell apart the acting from the real feels.
Ryder wasn’t a jerk, so despite wanting to be single and alone with his hard-earned money, he was amazingly chill with going with the flow during his time with Scarlett. If anything, it was Scar who was having a hard time with the whole thing. She likes him, but is it smart to set herself up for another heart break anyone could see coming? The whole drama and romantic build-up was great to watch. I loved seeing their walls go down, loved watching them interact with the others. It was a solid story with an enticing couple that I definitely recommend.
