Dear Reader,

How can you fix a mistake of the past? Can you ever fix it?

These are some of the questions that were going around my head when I was thinking about Emilio Andreoni and his ex-fiancée Gisele Carter. Emilio had cut her from his life two years ago when a sex tape scandal erupted online. He saw the images of the woman he loved in another man’s bed and immediately called off their wedding. He would not listen to her protestations of innocence.

But had it been Gisele in that hotel room?

If it hadn’t been Gisele, then who had it been?

I love twin stories. I’ve written a couple now so I wanted to do a fresh spin on it. How about twins who didn’t know they were twins? I had read a couple of accounts of twins who had been separated at birth, coincidentally running into each other. How weird would that be to suddenly come face to face with your own image?

When Emilio finds out the truth he does all he can do to win Gisele back.  But sometimes there are mistakes that have far reaching repercussions and saying sorry is never going to be enough.

I hope you enjoy Deserving of His Diamonds? and I hope it gets you thinking about the issue of making amends!

His not-so-perfect fiancée...

Emilio Andreoni's goal is perfection. A corporate king and Italy's most eligible bachelor, he craves only one more thing to complete his phenomenally successful life-the perfect woman!

Once he thought that woman was shy Gisele Carter, until her scandalous goings-on became headline news and he called off their seemingly perfect engagement.

But now Emilio is faced with proof of Gisele's innocence. He's determined to win back the only woman who ever truly satisfied him, but first he must persuade Gisele she's worthy of wearing his diamonds again....
