Hunter Dunlap, co-owner of Everlasting Love, wants nothing to do with romance since his wife left him for his assistant—a woman. His new assistant, Ronni Strickland, is perfect with her big glasses and strict appearance. She’s clearly not his type.
On Valentine’s Day, while checking out a resort for the company, Hunter discovers he and Ronni are booked into a section called Bondage Bay. Suddenly he’s looking at his assistant with new eyes—and with a burning need to discover what she’s hiding under that all-business exterior.
Publisher’s Note: Originally available in the Diamond Studs anthology.
Diamond Assets is an emotional and moving story of two people finding each other. Hunter’s past relationship has scarred him and left him feeling vulnerable and lonely. Ronnie works hard and is competent at her job, but has been overlooked as a woman.
Their relationship starts out like most of the good ones do, as friends, even though Hunter is Ronnie’s boss. They make a great team in the office and as the story unfolds, we find out they make a great team in the bedroom as well.
This story is sensual and the love scenes are erotic. I liked the progression of their relationship and how it is portrayed in the story and writing. Hunter and Ronnie are likable and easy to connect with in the story.
If you are looking for a romance with a little BDSM, spice, and a happy ending then check out Diamond Assets.
Based on this story, I would check out other creations by Ruth D. Kerce.
