Tempt Me with Diamonds by Jane Feather


Date Read: January 29, 2019

Genre: Historical, Romance
Goodreads

Three friends who met at an elite English boarding school take on the town—and the ton—one by one, in this sparkling new series about love, loss, and lustrous gemstones, from New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather...


A FINE ROMANCE…

Diana Sommerville seems to have it all—beauty, brains, and vast wealth, thanks to her family's ownership of a diamond mine abroad. But when her beloved brother dies in battle and leaves a lion's share of his estate to his best friend, Diana finds herself in a situation that seems scripted for the stage: Sharing her family home with the man she used to love—and now loathes. Worse, her unfaithful former fiancé has already moved in.

OR AN EXCELLENT FAKE?

Rupert Lacey didn't expect Diana to take the news without a fight. Still, he didn't expect her to bring the battle directly to their newly shared doorstep—complete with a full set of trunks, and a full set of orders to the staff. Yet there she is, bold, regal...magnificent as ever. Now they would face a formidable challenge: to ignore each other—and the unanswered questions that stood between them. The only sure thing is their still blazing desire. But with a woman like Diana, it will take nothing less than a momentous misunderstanding, a missing prized mare, and a shocking revelation to restore a love that hasn't lost its shine.

Overall Rating: 4.00

Colonel Rupert Lacey’s best friend, Jeremy Sommerville, died in South Africa leaving him half of everything in Jeremy’s parents’ estate. The other half goes to Jeremy’s sister Diana, who at one time was engaged to Rupert. The estate consists of properties, homes, gold and diamond mines and a race horse. When Diana returns to London from South Africa, she is shocked to realize she must share things with Rupert. Part of her anger is not knowing exactly how her brother died and something else Rupert refuses to talk about.

They decide that sharing the house may scandalize her elderly aunt and others, so they pretend to have married in S. Africa. However, they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. Her best friends, Fenella and Petra, are sympathetic to her but have no problems with their arrangement. Diana and Rupert get along, but there is always something keeping them from admitting they love each other. He finally gives up and moves out, but that doesn’t make her happy. Of course, there is a HEA and my favorite quote from Fenella: “To the most unromantic but perfectly matched couple that ever was.” I’m looking forward to Fenella and Petra having HEAs.
