Ariel Allison's first novel is a keeper! Weaving historical fact, long held rumour and innuendo with entertaining characters and intrigue, eye of the god gripped my attention from beginning to end. Abby is a strong, intelligent woman yet crippled by the emotional pain of her father's rejection. Alex is bad to the bone, selfishly pursuing the adrenaline rush as much as the cash, from being a freelance thief as well as a ladies' man. When their paths intersect over the magnificent Hope diamond, sparks fly as everything they have ever believed about themselves and their choices in life are challenged. This top notch novel has a killer ending, which will leave you clamouring for more from this talented author.
