welcome

I'm Lauren Layne.

aka LL

Officially? I'm a New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of sexy, modern romantic fiction.

Real talk? I just like telling stories. Love stories, specifically! I am so over books with sex or romance being dismissed as "trash." We can be smart, informed women and still appreciate reading a happy ending!

None of this guilty pleasure nonsense. There is nothing guilty about pleasure!
