We are thrilled to be sharing the release of bestselling author Louise Bay’s all-new contemporary romance stand-alone,
THE WRONG GENTLEMAN
I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
Alternative synopsis from Skylar’s POV
The last thing I’m looking for is a man.
The very last thing I’m looking for is love.
Love isn’t something to long for, it’s something to run from. I learned my lesson young and I learned it fast.
When Landon Wolf swaggers into my world, I just can’t see straight—he’s brooding and British, protective and provocative. So I set aside my rules for just one night.
One night that turns into a summer.
Landon Wolf needs to take his British ass back to London. This American girl is immune.
Impervious to the delicious way he says my name.
Unmoved by the way he touches me and makes every bad memory disappear.
And completely blind to his hard body, husky-like eyes and lickable jaw.
I’m not looking for love—I just hope it hasn’t found me.
THE WRONG GENTLEMAN is now available and only $2.99 this week!

Landan Wolf served in the special forces and then ran a lucrative business he’d recently sold making him extremely rich, opting for a quieter life. However, he’s been asked by an old friend to do one last mission on a luxury yacht. Landon never dates, just has hook-ups and sets his sights on the blonde in the bar before embarking on the task given to him. He’s taken aback by his latest conquest, Skylar Anderson. She wasn’t what he expected and moreover, she’s the one to kick him to the curb after their evening of passion. Landon doesn’t think he’ll see this girl who had surprisingly thrown him off-kilter again. He gets a further shock when discovering the yacht he embarks the mission on is for none other than her.
Skylar Anderson is a beautiful, smart, sassy girl. She doesn’t want to tie herself down to one man, loves her job working around the yacht for weeks on end and never stays in one place for long. Putting on a strong front makes people believe she’s happy with her life, but underneath I could clearly see a vulnerability. One thing’s for sure, she’s feelings inhibited from that one night with Landon. About to spend a whole lot of time working together at sea and nowhere to run, she has no idea that he isn’t your average deckhand.
Told in dual point of view, I loved getting the protagonists’ perspectives in the different scenarios that occur. The secondary characters are a great asset and getting an appearance from Landon’s brother, Hayden and his beloved Avery was phenomenal, too. The chemistry between Skylar and Landon just oozes off the pages and I thought they were incredibly sweet as their friendship grew. They kept themselves guarded from being more which I really liked. And it was refreshing to see a couple become close in other ways other than intimacy. Bay cannily put me on edge with Landon’s hidden secret, and I couldn’t help thinking it would blow up in his face at some point which had me worried for poor Skylar.
Ms. Bay’s words reeled me in and yet again, the talent for creating likeable characters with a very hot alpha was very well put together. Not only was the build-up throughout the story fabulous, but The Wrong Gentleman had everything I like in a good read. Hot characters, humour, mystery and complete intrigue. I highly recommend one-clicking up and diving straight in if a hot British man and sassy American appeals to you with an explosive edge to the book. Bravo Ms. Bay for an impeccably well-written love story!

“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?” For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”
