Shackled by pearls…
When Ruby Clemenger discovers she’s been left almost half of the Bastiani Pearl Corporation, she knows that her life is about to get complicated – especially with the added arrival of Zane Bastiani, the pearl master’s son - Zane wants rid of Ruby as quickly as possible – he thinks she’s nothing more than his father’s mistress and he’s sure she can be easily bought – good-time girls usually can.
But Ruby’s price is high…even for a billionaire like Zane. Unable to pay her off with cash, Zane decides to seduce Ruby into submission. Clearly a woman ripe for the taking, Zane reckons he has nothing to lose – until he discovers Ruby is
innocent… in every way…


Zane and Ruby’s journey to finding happiness was full of road blocks. Mistrust, secrets and a passion so powerful at times it was painful to read.
Zane is returning home to make peace with his father, only to find out that he has passed away and won’t get the chance to speak with his father and heal old wounds. Instead, he finds the lovely and beautiful Ruby who he believes was his father’s mistress. If that’s not enough when his father’s will is read, he discovers they will both have to run the Bastiani Pearl Corporation.
The story is set on the beautiful Gold Coast. It is evident that this author has done her research on the countryside and the pearl industry. The reader is taken on the journey of discovering and learning about pearls, design and the business itself.
Zane is a savvy businessman and Ruby a designer. Together they make an incredible team but would they agree? No, because there is mistrust, and way too many secrets between them along with such a powerful attraction they cannot deny. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery, passion and pain, one to be remembered for a long time.
I so enjoyed reading this wonderfully crafted story. I loved the way Trish Morey shows her readers that the power of love can heal all wounds and bring so much joy!
