In book two of Jewels of Desire, Ruby Callaghan was as much fun as I was hoping she would be. She was gutsy, gorgeous, and genuine. She is also an MBA student at Harvard who was out at a local club for an evening of cutting loose after year-end finals, although Keegan, her bodyguard, was not willing to cut her much slack. Ruby has always had a thing for Keegan, however since he had known her since grade school he is not willing to see her as anything other than a younger sister. As a result all ...more

3.5 stars

This novella was much better than the first Jewels of Desire, Diamond Duplicity. There is a real plot here and the two main characters actually seem to be people, rather than just sex addicts. In this case, the summary provided on Goodreads and on NetGalley was perfect.

I loved the first installment and this second book to the Jewels of Desire Series was even better.

I love how they turned the tables and made the woman a Sassy, In your face, intelligent yet quirky, sexy fighter. Rambunctous to the core even her guards think she is a handful. Definitely a good twist of a plot Red finds herself in a tricky situation and takes full advantage of it. She certainly does the same with Will.

Why I love it
The title alone is a play on words and it gives light to the story.

Wow, I am still cooling myself off from the heat that this book gives off. Hot,Hot,Hot.
I devoured this book in one sitting. This has a bit of mystery, suspense and lots and lots of good love scenes.
Ruby Ransom is the continuation of The Jewels of Desire series. The first book was great but honestly I really liked this book better. I felt like there was tons of chemistry between the two main characters and the storyline moved really fast and kept you interested through out.
Red is the heroine a

what a good book, this is part of a series but can be read as a standalone book. the characters are well written and the story has many twists and turns. this book contains adult language and very steamy scenes but they are well written into the story. defiantly a must read book

Erica and Elise are at it again with the second Jewels of Desire book "Ruby Ransom." Ruby doesn't want to be in a relationship, but her mind may change when Al sends a kidnapper (Will) to take her away. This is a must read if you've read "Diamond Duplicity," and I hope to see more books in this series soon!

This story picks up the night after the first book with Red (Ruby). She wakes up to someone in her room looking to steal a ruby. Only he doesn't realize she is Ruby. This story, like the first, was fast paced. It really could have been a full length novel. Loved Will. He was nerdy but also had a bit of a hidden alpha side to him.

Looking forward to the next in the series.

This was a fast paced short story - entertaining from start to finish! Ruby is one saucy young woman, and both her and Will have their share of the upper hand - very cleverly done with lots of lol moments:)

After walking away from her career as a business banker to pursue writing full-time, Erica moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to a small tourist town in the North Georgia Mountains where she lives in a 90-year-old haunted farmhouse with her workaholic husband, her 180lb lap dog, and at least one ghost.
