"...a fantasy come true...award-winning erotica at its best..."
Lucy O'Malley wants to find a man—someone who will cool the fire that crackles in her blood. That doesn't seem too much for a gal to ask. Then Matt Diamond, the man of her heated dreams, strolls through the door of the cafe where she is employed. Bulging muscles, worn jeans and bedroom eyes wrapped up in one big package of pure male testosterone are enough to make Lucy slide right off
Matt is blindsided by the redheaded woman prone to fumbling her way throughout her days. All he meant to do was duck into a restaurant for a quick burger. What he got was a red-hot tamale lying on the floor at his feet. Setting out for only a one-night stand, Matt is surprised at the depth of emotion that comes over him the first time he holds Lucy in his arms.
Enter Jake, Matt's twin brother and mirror image. Never in his wildest dreams did he think his brother's new love would steal his heart instantly.
Lucy's going to have to figure out how to deal with the double love of her double Diamonds—because both brothers set her body on fire, and both of them have captured her heart.
"I feel bad that we missed the movie. Seeing a show was the reason you asked me out tonight." Lucy grinned and sipped at her wine.
He observed her smile across the white tablecloth. The candle's glow sparkled in her emerald eyes. Beautiful red hair swirled around her bare upper arms. Matt's palm tightened around his wine goblet in an effort not to reach out and run his fingers through the satiny length. "I had totally forgotten that we were going to do that." Four pleasant hours had passed, and he hadn't even realized it. Leaning back in his chair, he was the picture of contentment. "Lucy, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the conversation tonight."
"Me, too." She stared at him over the rim of her wineglass. "I hope I haven't bored you with all the details of my home remodel." She had latched onto the subject, knowing that he was in construction and it was something they could both relate to. His quiet stare was slightly unnerving.
"I want to say something, and I hope you won't take this the wrong way."
She remained calm even though her heart sank. He is bored. This will be our last date.
"I don't know what I expected tonight—well, yes I do. I figured I'd be sopping up spilled water out of my lap or picking you off the ground—especially when I saw those sexy shoes you're wearing."
He held up his hand to stop anything she was about to say. "Don't be embarrassed. Even in this dim light, I can see that you're blushing. In fact—" he leaned forward and touched her cheek lightly with a steady finger, "—your heightened color extends to here." His finger trailed a slow, sensuous path down across her chin, lower past her slender neck and rested just above where her cleavage started.
Lucy wondered if anyone was watching them. She didn't care. She also wondered if he could feel her heart pounding under his feathery touch as she fought to keep her breath steady. His penetrating observation was not what she thought he was going to say.
"I'm going to be honest with you." His tongue moistened his lips. "I left my apartment tonight thinking about what it would feel to have you beneath me—what it would feel like to hold your breasts in my hands."
Lucy swallowed—and quit breathing.
"Don't get me wrong. I still want your body." His hand trailed down to her arm where it lay on the table. He rubbed his thumb across her forearm until he was holding her trembling hand. "I just don't think I want a one-night stand. I haven't been with a woman for a while. I had more or less sworn them off. But you?" His head shook slowly. "You have captivated me, and I want to see where this thing that you've aroused in me will go. I have a proposition for you. I don't want to play the game of teenagers flirting across a room or pretending to accidentally brush against one another. I don't want to spend weeks getting to know you better. Sleep with me tonight. I'm a man and you're a beautiful woman. I want to be inside you and not wait another night longer to do it. I want your body wrapped around me."
Lucy nearly fainted. No man had ever been as honest with her as Matt was being right now. And hadn't she thought about lying beneath him, of having his lips against hers? She hadn't gone any further with her fantasy because it was something she didn't think would ever happen. Not with a man like Matt and a clumsy girl like her.
She held out her glass of wine, waiting for him to fill it. He complied silently, never taking his eyes from hers.
Lucy brought the goblet to her lips, tilted the glass and drained the contents. Breathing deeply to clear her head, she tucked her purse beneath her arm and stood.
Matt watched her warily.
Lucy smiled down at him and touched his hair where it rested against his collar.
It was something she had wanted to do all evening. "I believe we need to go back to my house and finish our date."
"LUCY'S DOUBLE DIAMONDS is definitely an erotic story at the top of its game. Ruby Storm has outdone herself with this. Ménage and HOT"

"Is it possible to love two brothers? Storm's affecting story is a pleasant surprise. Not only is it a great read, it handles marvelously the question of whether deception can in fact lead to a happily ever after."
"Lucy's Double Diamonds is a very remarkable story and one that should not be missed. Ellora's Cave has a reputation for publishing great stories written by amazing authors; they should be very proud to add Ruby Storm to that amazing list of authors."
Lisa Lambrecht, In The Library Reviews
"LUCY'S DOUBLE DIAMONDS is an engaging contemporary love triangle. With an unexpected twist at the end, readers will find the resolution very satisfying. Ms. Storm's writing style is somewhat on the blunt side, so don't expect flowery love scenes. Instead, the reader can read about the earthy sexual encounters between Lucy and Matt. And Lucy and Jake. And... You'll have to read the story for yourself to find out more!"
Denise Powers, Sensual Romance Reviews
"A lustful and compelling story...the epitome of every woman's secret fantasy. With well-developed characters and unbelievably erotic sex scenes, this book is a definite keeper."
Kathi, Fallen Angels
"A must for any erotica fan. Filled with emotion, humor, and sizzling sex, this is one story that will have you panting throughout, and wishing for a sequel at the end."
