Africa–where diamonds are the currency of the weapons trade, and trust is the only option between two strangers...  Miranda Parrish is a world-renowned veterinarian specialist with expertise in endangered species. She’s fearless and will go anywhere an animal is in need. But when she journeys to Katanga, an animal sanctuary in the heart of Botswana, she lands in the middle of a blood diamond smuggling operation. And there’s only one man who can help her….   Special agent, Matt Bennett’s parents were murdered by a ruthless arms dealer when he was fourteen. He’s devoted his life to avenging their deaths and ending the cycle of violence threatening southern Africa. Undercover at Katanga, he clashes with Miranda. He’s never met a woman so stubborn, who’ll let nothing stand in the way of what she believes in. And he’ll let no one come between him and his vengeance.   Matt and Miranda will have to work together if they want to save Katanga, and both of their lives, before it’s too late.

Incredibly entertaining high adventure read, written with off-beat humour. Diamond Legacy is such a standout because of the way it differs from the usual romantic suspense genre in plot, narration and characters, exotic locale and circumstances not withstanding. I was reminded a little of Gerald Durrell’s animal stories and the anthropomorphic style of writing, which all served to add to my amusement and entertainment for 2 days straight. Throw in a funny, hunky undercover agent and a never-say-die animal dentist and I’m sold.
