About Lauren Layne


Lauren Layne is the USA TODAY bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.

A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.

She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL's ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books. 

Hobbies include cocktail hour, a designer purse addiction, and dry rosé.


LL on Romance

I write romance novels. Anyone who can’t handle that information without making an outdated Fabio reference ...

Get off my lawn.

For real though.

The constant maligning of the romance genre as smut and trash? It has to stop. What is the big deal? Is it the sex? The happy endings? I've got exactly zero time to deal with people who can't handle two of the best things in life.

As for who will like my books? Anyone who's enjoyed the movie The Proposal. Or When Harry Met Sally. Or Pretty Woman

Parents and people with delicate sensibilities :: My books are rated R. There's some "adult language, and while the sexy bits aren't quite as edgy as Fifty Shades of Grey, they're definitely steamy!
