Blood Diamond has a special place in my heart; for two reasons.
One, I was there when it took its first steps, and two, its "mother", Riley Quinn, is the reason I managed to plot and write Ring of Lies.
Since Riley is visiting tomorrow I'm going to let her tell that particular tale and spend my time telling all of you what a great read Blood Diamond is, and, if I do my job correctly and stir your interest in Blood Diamond be sure to come back tomorrow because Riley is giving away a free download to one lucky reader ... will it be you? Maybe, if you leave a comment ;)
So, enough of that promo stuff, let's talk books! Blood Diamond is ...
Ok, I'll stop :).
Here's the review I gave Blood Diamond on Amazon-I think it says it all!
Diamonds Aren't Always A Girl's Best Friend!
Jillian St. James, a doctor working with Doctors Without Borders in the Congo, becomes the unwitting accomplice in a diamond theft and learns the true definition of "blood diamonds".
An angry warlord sends Mack, a mercenary, to track Jillian down but nights in a steamy jungle with a beautiful doctor can do strange things to a man and Mack finds his commitment to the job wavering. The sex is explosive but can Mack trust Jillian?
Jillian could ask Mack the same question, but the middle of the Congo with a maniacal warlord on the rampage is probably not the best time to ponder the intricacies of a new relationship!
Divided loyalties, dangerous secrets, and deadly despots convene in the Congo and might give Jillian and Mack one heck of a story to tell the grand kids ... if they survive!
I highly recommend Blood Diamond. It is a fast paced, thrilling read filled with danger and desire amidst an exotic, tropical landscape. A perfect way to add some heat on a cold winter night!
Aren't ya just dyin' to read Blood Diamond?
Remember, Riley will be here tomorrow to share how Blood Diamond came into existence AND she'll be giving away a FREE copy!
