Say It with Diamonds
by Lucy King (Goodreads Author)

The hero Will has inherited his father's estate, including a very large and well know jewellery collection. He takes a few items to Bella, the heroine, for valuation and there is an immediate spark between them. But his interest in Bella is put on hold when Bella informs him that some of the items have been tampered with. Eventually though the attraction returns and when Bella admits it is mutual it results in a passionate, albeit brief, encounter. But however much Bella enjoyed it, she knows Wi...more
I love HPs for all their classic tropes and plots (otherwise, I wouldn't read them), but I also love when I find an HP that can be fresh and modern while employing some of the common tropes. In this book, the hero is a billionaire duke/financier who doesn't believe in love because all the men in his family have been adulterers; the heroine is illegitimate and comes from a poor background. But instead of being a staid story of a forced mistress or a virgin who becomes pregnant during her first ti...more

wow almost a five stars book! the hero was complex, brooding and oh so sexy! I usually have a problem with most heroines but this one was pretty much flawless. Strong, determined and honest. The sex scenes were hot and the only thing that bothered me was the lack of a future epilogue. other than that it was one hell of a ride!
Bella was an older experienced heroine which was a nice change. I liked that the descriptions and colors of William Cameron correlated w/ the rocks that she dealt w/ in her career. Really thought the mystery of his family heirlooms would carry out longer and provide more angst for the story though. His hang-up was a little off the wall, but went w/ it because he believed it. Bella of course is looking for “the one” as she would like to settle down and have a family, but because of Will’s hang-up...more
Nice to see an older heroine, but the hero's hang ups were pretty hard to believe (although they are pretty standard hang ups with pretty standard reasons for them). The pacing of the story is very fast - in terms of establishing the relationship, building the conflict, and overcoming it for the resolution. Other than the fact that he has a collection of jewellery that's been in the family for years, I also didn't really get why the hero had to be a duke - particularly since almost nothing is do...more
