After decades in the spotlight as an Oscar-winning film star and famous beauty, Vivienne Winter is one of the most recognizable women on the planet. When she decides to auction her multimillion dollar jewellery collection for charity, there's no shortage of people eager to buy a piece of her incredible history.
Young, ambitious Christine Smith is a jewellery expert working for a centuries-old auction house. But in a world of aristocratic snobs, her working-class origins are holding her back. She's desperate to secure the sale of Vivienne Winter's gem collection: it's set to be the biggest auction since Elizabeth Taylor's. However, meeting the Hollywood star is just the first hurdle Christine has to jump.
Vivienne's handsome, spoilt and sexy playboy grandson Angel is the heir to her fortune. The anger and resentment he feels towards his grandmother for selling what he'd counted on as one day being his inheritance sets in motion a series of events with deadly consequences. Angel is totally unscrupulous, and no one will emerge from his plotting unscathed. For it seems that family secrets cut sharper than diamonds . . .
I am not a big fan of Bonk Buster books but one authors books I can’t resist are Rebecca Chance, I have read every one of her books and have loved each and every one so I couldn’t wait to begin Killer Diamonds and I am thrilled with the new cover as I wasn’t a fan of the Mile High cover.
The prologue instantly grips the reader’s attention when we meet Angel and Vivienne in a shocking situation but we are left hanging in the moment when the book then moves back to the earlier years of Vivienne in her acting days. The storyline revolves around Vivienne’s exquisite jewellery collection which she is putting to auction and Christine is eager to be the one to host the auction believing that she can make the auction a great success. Sex obsessed Angel has his own agenda when it comes to the jewellery and he don’t care who he hurts along the way.
We have three main characters in this book Vivienne the classy glamorous film star, her immoral grandson Angel and Christine the plain girl next door who is a gemologist whose life literally turns upside down when she meets Vivienne. Each of these characters are extremely well developed and each bring something completely different to the storyline, Vivienne has tales to tell from her adventurous years in the limelight and she seems pretty wise too. Christine is a character who I instantly warmed to, she is your average woman who is extremely passionate about her job and at first she seems a tad naive but she soon shows her true colours. Angel brings the scandal, the steaming sex scenes and the tension to the storyline. There are also a large amount of supporting characters too all who helped add to the glamorous and sexual feel to the storyline.
As ever Rebecca Chance has delivered another well detailed storyline from the descriptions of these valuable and exquisite jewels to the in-depth sexual antics that will leave you more than a little hot under the collar so this one isn’t for the prudish and maybe not one to read on the train on the commute to work!
Rebecca Chance always manages to create intense sex scenes that she weaves so perfectly around a gripping storyline getting the balance spot on which I haven’t found in similar authors books. I think the author has delivered another steamy scandalous read that had me gripped from beginning to end.
