hi and welcome

I'm delighted you're here!

You've reached the online home of Lauren Layne. I'm the New York Times & USA TODAY bestselling author of romantic comedies--they're rated R, ladies and gents!

When not writing sassy beach reads, I'm also terribly outspoken about cocktails, pink lipstick, what it's like to be a full-time author, and why you've got to stop referring to romance novels as bodice rippers.

Interested? Scroll down and pick your poison!
