Rough Diamond is a steamy, yet sweet romance. I loved Rupert and Alice together. The sexual tension between the two was very intense. I felt badly for Rupert because he couldn't be upfront with Alice about his reasons for being in Freewill. Alice is a strong woman who has made herself a successful business woman. I was really rooting for them, I really liked the epilogue in the end. It gave a nice peek into the future.
