Hopeful ebook cover 2017

Hopeful Re released $0.99 Sale

Hopeful is on SALE NOW

I’m so excited to tell you that Hopeful has been re-released  and it’s on SALE! for just 99c!!

I have spent months revising and improving it, including:

∞ An extra 15k words

∞ New scenes and an additional epilogue.

∞ New cover!!

∞ New blurb!

This story is SO important to me. I love Joel and Ava so much and because it was the second book I ever wrote, I didn’t know anything about writing. I wanted to revisit the characters and do them justice. It has been HARD. Much more difficult that I imagined. But I really think that it’s a much better book. And it has new scenes added including an additional epilogue from Joel’s POV!

It’s finally ready along with the audiobook! The audio is narrated by Saskia Maarleveld who audiobook lovers will know from my Empire State Series and Duke of Manhattan.

It’s on sale for just a few days so grab it while you can!!

If you already own the book on Kindle, I’m trying to get them to update the text. There are no guarantees which is part of the reason I’m doing a sale in the first week.

New Blurb

A long time ago, Joel Wentworth told me he’d love me for infinity . . . and I can’t give up hope that it might have been true.

How long does it take to get over your first love?

Eight years should be long enough. My mind knows that, but there’s no convincing my heart.

Guys like Joel weren’t supposed to fall for girls like me. He had his pick of women at University, but somehow the laws of nature were defied and we fell crazy in love.

After graduation, Joel left to pursue his career in New York. He wanted me to go with him but my life was in London.

We broke up and my heart split in two.

I haven’t seen or spoken to him since he left.

If only I’d known that I’d love him this long, this painfully, this desperately. I might have said yes all those years ago. He might have been mine all this time in between.

Now, he’s moving back to London and I need to get over him before he gets over here.

But how do I forget someone who gave me so much to remember?

Faithful – Old Blurb

Leah Thompson’s life in London is everything she’s supposed to want, a successful career, the best girlfriends a bottle of sauvignon blanc can buy and a wealthy boyfriend who’s just proposed. But something doesn’t feel right. Is it simply a case of be careful what you wish for?

Uncertain about her future Leah looks to her past and finds her high school crush, Daniel Armitage, online. Daniel is one of London’s most eligible bachelors who knows what and who he wants. And he wants Leah. Leah resists Daniel’s advances as she concentrates on being the perfect fiancé.

She soon finds that she should have trusted her instincts when she realises she’s been betrayed by the men and women in her life.

Leah’s heart has been crushed. Will ever be able to trust again and will Daniel be there when she is?

Thanks

Hollywood Scandal is LIVE

I’m so thrilled that Hollywood Scandal is LIVE!! It’s a sexy new standalone with all new characters that you’ve not seen before!

I really hope you enjoy it!

<3 Louise

Flawless writing, incredible story telling, and believable characters that you WANT to root for. Loved every word!” –#1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken 

“Small town meets Hollywood glitz! Steamy, secretive and oh-so-chemical and emotional, you will be clamoring for more of Louise Bay’s new sizzling-hot romance!” NYT Bestselling author Katy Evans

“Hollywood Scandal is hands down one of the best books by the exceptionally talented Louise Bay.” Heroes and Heartbreakers

 

HE’S A HOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR. SHE’S LITERALLY THE GIRL NEXT DOOR.

One of Hollywood’s A-listers, I have the movie industry in the palm of my hand. But if I’m going to stay at the top, my playboy image needs an overhaul. No more tabloid headlines. No more parties. And absolutely no more one night stands.

Filming for my latest blockbuster takes place on the coast of Maine and I’m determined to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds me when I run into Lana Kelly.

She doesn’t recognize me, she’s never heard of Matt Easton and my million dollar smile doesn’t work on her.

Ego shredded, I know I should keep my distance, but when I realize she’s my neighbor I know I’m toast. There’s no way I can resist temptation when it’s ten yards away.

She has a mouth designed for pleasure and legs that will wrap perfectly around my waist.

She’s movie star beautiful and her body is made to be mine.

Getting Lana Kelly into my bed is harder than I’m used to. She’s not interested in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but I’m determined to convince her the best place in the world is on the red carpet, holding my hand.

I could have any woman in the world, but all I want is the girl next door.

A sexy, standalone romance.

I’m so excited to be able to share Ryder Westbury and Scarlett King with you. Like some of my favorite books I’ve written, this has scenes in the UK and in the US. And there are lots of British accents. Actually, it was a challenge to get the right narrators for the audio book. So, apologies but audio won’t be out for a couple of weeks. I’m sure the narrators I’ve picked will do a great job and so will be worth the wait!!
Thanks to everyone who has supported this book so far–it’s amazing what a wonderful world we still live in. iBooks and B&N have collectively taken ten years off my life!!! I can always guarantee that on release day there’s always at least one major disaster!! Anyway, hopefully today will buck the trend because today is OFFICIAL release day! Can I eat cake?
Duke paperbacks are also available. They’re just not tagged with the ebook for a couple of days. But they’re there, honest!
I can’t wait to get your feedback on THE DUKE! Make sure you’re following me on social media and drop by and tell me how you got on!
Love Louise <3

 

New Release News!!

Duke of Manhattan is releasing on all platforms on May 16th!

I’m in love with the cover. Najla Qamber is a genius.

 

 

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 caress 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.

The book is entirely standalone–you really don’t need any backstory at all. But for those of you who have read King of Wall Street, this book is all about Max King’s sister, Scarlett.

Because the hero – Ryder Westbury – is British I’ve had to wait a while for the right narrator. This means that the audio will be delayed for a couple of weeks. Thank you for your patience. But I promise he will be worth waiting for!

Thank you for making Park Avenue Prince a USA Today bestseller!

Thank you so so much to everyone who supported the release of Park Avenue Prince!! I was so excited on Wednesday to discover you had made Park Avenue Prince a USA Today bestseller!! So exciting! Thank you.

I recently gave up my day job to write full time. A lot of people closest to me said they were worried about me working on my own. But I don’t! I work with more people than ever!! Not only to I hear and chat to readers every day, I work with my editor, my publicist, my cover designer, my audiobook narrators, other authors, bloggers . . . the list goes on and on! And I’m so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. The world is my virtual office now and it’s so exciting!

park avenue prince a usa today bestseller

“Attention was seductive. I knew it wasn’t my looks that made me so successful in the game of seduction. Women understood I’d do whatever it took to succeed—in or out of bed—and were pulled in by the attention and focus. People liked to feel important—men, women, in business or the bedroom.”

I’m thrilled that so many of you are enjoying Park Avenue Prince! As you know, it’s totally stand alone but the heroine is the bff from King of Wall Street. I know a lot of you are enjoying seeing Harper Jayne and Max King from King of Wall Street. They appear in a few scenes. It was certainly nice to write them again. It was so fun.

My next project is Scarlett’s book who is Max King’s sister and friend to Grace and Harper. She is A LOT of fun. She knows her own mind and is about to give a certain someone a run for his money! I’m enjoying writing it a lot. No idea of release date at this point!

Are you ready to meet Sam Shaw?

Park Avenue Prince is LIVE for a special release week price!

 

I’m so excited that Park Avenue Prince is finally live! So far the response has been fantastic. People are enjoying getting to know Sam Shaw and understand how Grace falls so crazy in love with him. But he’s not a man who believes in love. Grace has to teach him that it’s okay to need people.

“Something in his non-response was intriguing, almost as if he were keeping something back—maybe there was a little Batman underneath the Wall Street façade.”

I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself—I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships.

But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a monk.

I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They’re the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I’m not the guy who sends flowers. I’m not the guy who calls the next day.

Or so I thought before an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.

When Grace Astor rolls her eyes at me—I want to hold her against me and show her what she’s been missing.

When she makes a joke at my expense—I want to silence her sassy mouth with my tongue.

And when she leaves straight after we f*ck with barely a goodbye—it makes me want to pin her down and remind her of the three orgasms she just had.

She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules in this Park Avenue bedroom.

A sexy, standalone, contemporary romance.

 

 

 

 

 

This book is completely standalone but it links to King of Wall Street as Park Avenue Prince is Grace Astor’s story who was Harper Jayne’s best friend. You see a glimpse of Harper and Max in Park Avenue Prince.

It’s at a special release price for the first five days so make sure you pick it up before the price goes up!

I really hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think!

Lauren Blakely is #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List

I woke up today to hear about Lauren Blakely hitting number one on the New York Times.
I have no right to be but I’m so proud. And I got a bit tearful when I heard.
We all know Lauren is a talented, funny and prolific author. What makes her even more special is her support and understated championing of the indie community and of authors who have much less success than she does (which is most of us!).
I am so grateful that she’s been part of my journey. The Empire State Series wouldn’t have made USA Today if it hadn’t been for Lauren’s guidance.
I know many authors who are just as thankful to her as I am.

From me and from us all – Lauren, you are reaping what you sow – My love and congratulations.

Full Package is OUT NOW!

Blurb

I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….

Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

Spoiler–neither one of us sleeps.

Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

FULL PACKAGE is a standalone friends-to-lovers rom-com!

 

Park Avenue Prince – New Release!

New Release News!

 parkavenueprince-ebook-bn

I’m so excited to share with you the cover and blurb for my new release PARK AVENUE PRINCE!

It will be live on Monday 13 February!

It’s totally standalone but it features Grace Astor who some of you might remember as Harpers BFF from King of Wall Street. I know a lot of you really liked Grace and I was really keen to tell her story. You don’t need to have read King of Wall Street to enjoy Park Avenue Prince.

I love this story. Sam Shaw, the Park Avenue Prince, is my kinda man. I hope you fall in love with him like I did.
