‘Diamonds Aren’t Forever’ replaces the clichéd’ and archetypal erotic romance heroine with a strong-willed former criminal who is more than capable of running life’s show. However, her power and tenacity is quickly over-ruled when brothers show up at her door to once again make her pay for the past. While it may initially sound like a crime novel, J.L. Mitchell’s masterpiece is chock-full of razor-sharp and intense MFM action. It’s unlike anything readers have encountered before.
Nashville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2014 -- While nobody can deny erotic fiction’s recent boom in popularity, critics and readers alike find themselves crying out for new narratives that don’t succumb to recycling the ‘same old’ concepts. Author J.L. Mitchell is bucking the trend with gusto, serving up a steamy plate of never-seen-before erotic romance that will leave readers with sweaty palms and racing minds.
‘Diamonds Aren’t Forever’ is the first volume of what is planned to be a four-part series. Readers are urged to put their stereotypes for the genre aside, as Mitchell will have each of them broken by the end of the last chapter.
Peyton Gilbrad can finally put her fears to rest. She has security she lacked as a child living in foster homes and on the streets of Atlanta, Ga. She has money, albeit much of it from her past as a jewel thief. Now she’s a bestselling author, her books fueled by tales as a jewel thief. Her past is dead and buried, a past she worked hard to keep a secret. A past she's walked away from, free and clear.
Sebastian and Thierry Boudreaux know all about Peyton Gilbrad. Her ex-husband is touting she’s a jewel thief with access to diamonds worth millions. The brothers are sent to collect Steven Hawking’s gambling debts. Their plan, get in, get the money Hawking owed, and take a few extra diamonds to fund their own business, leaving their life as Number collectors for their family’s casino.
But no plan ever comes off without a hitch, like falling for Peyton Gilbrad. And no past is dead and buried. Sebastian and Thierry set off a chain of events that brings trouble to all of Diamond’s girls. Sebastian and Thierry reluctantly team up with Diamond Malloy, notorious jewel thief to rid Peyton of her problem. But are they all too late to realize diamonds are always forever?
Adult Content. Suitable for audiences 18 and over. M/F/M erotic romance.
“Heroines are all too often the ‘good girl’, corrupted by a powerful man who exploits their naivety. I wanted my books to be different,” explains Mitchell. “The great thing about Peyton is her will; she doesn’t sit around feeling sorry for herself due to her former boyfriends – but instead picks herself up to tackle life by herself. Of course, all of that changes with a literal knock at the door.”
Continuing, “She also refuses to make excuses and more than knows what she has done in the past. You really don’t see any erotic fiction along these lines; this unconventional female character development allows my work to stand as wholly unique within the marketplace.”
Readers appear to agree. In fact, since its release, the book has garnered a string of rave reviews.
For example, Ruby Johnson comments, “I don't want to give too much away, but this book is intense and full of drama. It is fast paced and there are no dull moments. If you like lots of hot sex of every variety, then this book is for you. Sometimes, I felt the mystery in the story was overshadowed by the graphic sex scenes and the somewhat unbelievable relationship between Peyton, Sebastian, and Thierry. However, I do believe readers of erotic romance will appreciate the emphasis of loyalty in the sexual relationship shown between the characters. I would give this a 3.5 for pacing alone.”
With more on the cards from this bright new author, interested readers are urged to purchase a copy of volume one as soon as possible.
