What reviewers say

“Wow. This book… this series had me hooked from the very first chapter. Maxime took my book boyfriend spot in book 1. By the end of book 2 I loathed him. Book 3 just hits you in the feels.” #bestseriesof2020 – HM Watson, BookBub
 
“Breathtakingly beautiful, and stunning beyond words, Maxime and Zoe’s dark love story had me hanging on every word.

Diamonds are Forever, an unforgettable dark mafia trilogy

Diamonds are Forever, a dark mafia romance

My love is wasted like gemstones in the dust, walked over by an oblivious shoe. It takes many suffering years and layers of mountains to squeeze carbon into a precious stone. Now that I’m polished and hard like a diamond, he doesn’t get to kick me back into the dirt

Men like him don’t love women like me.
They don’t love.
Period.

But he made me.
He’ll live with me.
Because diamonds are forever.

(Diamonds are Forever concludes this trilogy. Book 1, Diamonds in the Dust, and Book 2, Diamonds in the Rough, must be read to follow the story.)

Here’s a sneak peek

Dragging both hands over his head, he tilts his face to the ceiling and walks away from me. “Fuck.” He stays at the far end of the room for a moment before turning back to me. His hair is even wilder than before when he finally drops his arms to his sides. A war rages in his eyes. For a minute, he’s not my kidnapper, but the man who cares about me. He’s just a man making himself vulnerable by opening up and dropping his defenses. “I don’t want to scare you, Zoe. After your father—”
“Don’t.”
Sighing, he comes back and picks up the medicine box. “I’m going to tell you a story. A young man goes to a market and sees a beautiful woman admiring a precious object. He can see she wants it, but when she opens her purse, she doesn’t have enough money. This man, he was paid to abduct that woman. He has two choices. He can either grab her, tie her up, and drag her away, or he can go up to her and tell her how beautiful she is and buy her that precious object she wants so much. He can do that for her and be kind, inviting her to dinner. They can have a good time, have great sex. He can ask her to go away with him and knows she’ll say yes. Tell me, Zoe. Which man is kinder? Which man is the most selfless?”
“The honest one,” I whisper.
A shutter drops in front of his eyes. The man who was reaching out to me a second ago retracts back into his shell. I mourn the loss, the almost-intimacy, but I can’t lie to him. I can’t betray myself. I can’t strengthen his warped belief that lies can smooth over his crimes.

A new Diamond Magnate Novel

I’m so excited to announce that a new Diamond Magnate novel will release on 19 May 2020. Diamonds in the Dust is Book 1 of the Diamonds are Forever Trilogy. Book 2 will be released at the end of summer. Fans of Beauty in the Broken will be happy to learn that Lina and Damian will make their appearance in Book 3, which will be available before the end of the year.

Diamonds in the Dust (Book 1, Diamonds are Forever Trilogy)

A dark mafia romance

Men like us, we see things.
We do things, things that make us unfeeling.

That’s the price of power and money, of living la belle vie and running the French mafia. Then she came along like a pretty wildflower pushing through the cracks on a dirty pavement—fragile yet resilient, a breath of beauty among the filth. She was supposed to be just another job, a nameless person I was to pluck from her life and hand to my brother, nothing but a pawn in the gamble of our diamond business.

There’s a psychological label for men like us.
We lack empathy and guilt.
We do things to have what we want, things that make flowers wilt.
