A Diamond In The Dust by Paulette Rae is a romance that crosses genres and mixes romance, dystopia, and science fiction into a tale about loyalty and doing what is right. Adrienne is happy with her life on Earth, as long as her husband Trapper leaves her alone. Trapper travels a lot and Adrienne suspects he has other women to keep him warm at night. That is okay with Adrienne, except she is finally ready to give birth to a child, which was her purpose. When the tyrant Jacob Donelly Princeton comes into Adrienne's village, she is terrified. Jacob was double crossed and wants nothing more than revenge. But when he meets Adrienne, things begin to change. Adrienne wonders if Jacob is the man that can help her out of a bad situation, especially when she discovers she is finally pregnant.
