Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She’s tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she’s a magnet for men who don’t deserve her.

A week’s vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.

Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn’t date, he doesn’t stay the night, and he doesn’t make any promises.

It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

 A Week in New York is the first in a series of three novellas.

The Empire State Series concludes in New Year in Manhattan.

Anna and Ethan are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Their previous rules no longer apply.

In order to make things work, Anna needs to let go of her past and take a risk with Ethan. Ethan needs to learn how to deal with the ambiguity of a relationship.

Long-distance relationships are never easy and their relationship is fragile. For how long can it survive under the pressure of separation? Are either of them prepared to give up what they have for the other?

But distance isn’t the only obstacle Anna and Ethan face. Ultimately they have to decide whether they want to share a future together.

Review by Jamie for New Year in Manhattan: I was once again honored by the talented Louise Bay to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I can say right off that I fell in love with Ethan and Anna and was a bit crushed to see it end.

We pick up right where Autumn in London left off with Ethan flying back to New York to take care of things with his company, and Anna in London. They are trying to make their relationship work., being committed to one another heart and soul. It is hard though when you have never had a relationship, or a good one. The distance is super hard for both of them, though they both have a hard time expressing it. Once they finally open their lines of communication, happiness ensues.

They are just a hot and steamy couple who finally figure out what they want, each other. While apart they communicate, very well I might add, what they need and want from the other one. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but Ethan’s dirty talk had me all hot and bothered!

Beyond the sexy, dirty talking going on in the book, this also has comical and romantic written all in it!

As I said before, I fell in love with Ethan and Anna in A Week in New York (book #1) and have loved them until the end. Thank you Louise Bay for a great trilogy series and I would love to read more of your talent anyti



About the Author

I write sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind I like to read. My books Faithful and Hopeful are stand-alone novels although there are some overlapping characters. The Empire State Series of novellas starts with A Week in New York.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, I love all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so I’ll settle for books and films.

I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don’t have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

Hearing from readers is the best thing in the world so get in touch!
