Early Review: Tempt Me with Diamonds by Jane Feather

Jan 12, 2019

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...


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.


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.



Tempt Me with Diamonds is an intriguing romance. Diana and Rupert have a vast history of shared pleasures, as well as mournful tragedies that marked their lives. After the death of her brother Diana returns home to find her plans will have to include Rupert, her ex-fiance. Her beloved brother has left his shares of the family diamond mine to the man who destroyed her heart. Rupert and Diana will find themselves in battle throughout this story. I felt Rupert's reasons for Diana not to ask questions ridiculous. There was so much misinformation and Diana just leaves it at that.  No argument, no questions, just plain avoidance, and suffering. Overall it was a good story, I just wish Rupert had communicated more. I look forward to reading more in the series.
