hi and welcome!

I'm so glad you're here, but first things first ...

Are you signed up for The Clutch?

My Thursday e-magazine is full of breaking news, book updates, writing tips, productivity hacks and more!


Hi, I'm Lauren Layne!

I'm a USA TODAY and New York Times bestselling author of sexy romantic comedies. 

Yep, that means I write romance novels, but if you're about to use the words "Fabio" or "bodice-rippers," you're, oh, how do I put this ... totally behind the times. 

The 80s are over, and so are your grandmother's romance novels. My books are sexy, yes, but they're also smart and fun, just like your favorite rom-com movie. 

To browse the books, go here. Want to know more about me? Here you go. To see what's new, keep scrolling!


The Clutch

So, you like glitter, champagne, happy endings, and Sandra Bullock movies? 

Then you'll love The Clutch! My Thursday e-magazine has book news, lifestyle sparkle, writing tips and more!
