Amazon | Barnes and Noble

Each novella is around 30k words

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.


OMG! I've looked forward and dreaded this last installment of the Empire State Trilogy. I've enjoy Anna and Ethan, more than I though I would. But Louise Bay knocked it out of the part yet again!

This installment picks up after Ethan returns to New York and Anna staying in London. At the end of the Autumn in London, Ethan and Anna have confessed their love for each other and vows to make it work. The only problem is how? He's there and she's here. The only thing that they know is that they will be together in three weeks. What happens after that, no one knows.

During the three weeks, however, things become clear. Neither can be without the other, but who should move?

I love, love, loved this final installment. Through the first two, their relationship was rather easy, fun and loving. This final book showed more of the strife that couples face on separate countries. Ethan wants to move forward with Anna, for the long haul, but Anna is scared to pull the plug. Anna has to decide what to do to prove to Ethan that she wants him, forever.

Louise gives us a complete love story that was never meant to be. A one night stand that turned into a one week stand that turns into a lifetime of happiness. Ethan and Anna are prefect for each other and their chemistry leaps off the pages leaving you panting for more. Now I can't wait to see what Louise will bring us in the future.

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!

Released: October 21, 2014

Each novella is around 30k words

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.
