Can you tell us about your book, Diamonds are Forever?
Diamonds are Forever is the third and final book in The Secret Diamond Sisters trilogy. In Diamonds in the Rough—the second book in the series—a lot of secrets were revealed that changed everything the Diamond sisters thought they knew about their lives. Now, in Diamonds are Forever, they have to deal with the fallout of these secrets. The biggest theme throughout the book is forgiveness—will the Diamonds be able to forgive those who kept secrets from them for so long, or will they hold onto those grudges forever?
What did you enjoy most about writing the 3rd book in the Diamond Sisters series?
Most of the series takes place in Las Vegas, but there’s a big change of scenery in Diamonds are Forever when the girls jet off to Aspen for spring break. Aspen is a ski town in the Rocky Mountains, and while it’s an extremely glamorous ski town, it’s very different from Vegas. I had a blast being able to play around with the new setting!
Which of the main characters do you see yourself in the most?
I’m definitely a mix of Madison and Courtney. Madison’s basic personality is the most similar to mine, although I’m much nicer than she is! And then Courtney and I share the same love of reading.
Do you have a favorite quote from your book that you want to share with your readers?
“It takes strength to forgive and love unconditionally.”
I think this quote captures the theme of the book!
I’m so excited to read Diamonds are Forever! What are you most excited about in Diamonds are Forever’s release day?
I can’t wait to see what the fans think of the book—and of how I ended the series!
DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
by Michelle Madow
Soon enough, Courtney and Brett were the only ones left. Naked. In the hot tub. Next to each other.
Courtney moved her hair over her shoulder, unable to look him in the eye.
“So.” He ran a hand through his hair. “I guess we should grab our towels?”
“Yeah, we should.” She lifted her eyes to meet his, and gasped at the fire that blazed within them. He rested his forehead on hers, his hand caressing her cheek, and she wanted so badly for him to kiss her, to run his hand over every inch of her body. But she couldn’t be thinking about this stuff right now. Not with everyone a room away, able to walk in at any second.
“Okay.” He swallowed. “I’ll turn around while you get yours first.”
“Okay.” Her heart pounded so hard she could barely breathe, and when he turned around, she hurried to grab her towel, wrapping it tightly around herself. “You can get out now,” she said. The water sloshed as he got out of the hot tub, and she studied the fireplace in an extreme effort to not turn around.
“All right,” Brett said, placing a hand on her shoulder. “Why don’t I walk you to your room? I’ll make sure that no one tries pulling your towel down as a joke. I don’t think they would, but it can’t hurt, just to be safe.”
Courtney wanted to say “okay” again, but she’d said that over and over again, so she just nodded. They made their way back to her room in silence, dripping water on the floor, and he walked inside with her. Courtney shut the door and locked it.
She turned back to Brett, and his green eyes blazed with such intensity—such desire—that her heart leaped into her throat.

Meanwhile, Courtney takes the next step with her secret boyfriend—and future stepbrother—and as their parents’ wedding approaches, the pressure’s on to reveal their relationship.
Peyton’s figuring out a plan for her future, but she still feels guilty about getting her former bodyguard fired and wonders if she can get over him in the arms of someone else. But the biggest bombshell will change everything once again, because Madison’s ready to tell the huge secret she’s uncovered. And with the boy who betrayed her but who could be the love of her life fighting for his own life, she might need the Diamond sisters more than ever.
