Diamonds Release Party ~ Win a Tivoli Heart Necklace or free ebook!

I'm so excited! Break out the Bailey's and Beignets! (or whatever you enjoy).

My second novella, Diamonds (1st novella in the Stiletto Millionaire Club Series) was released today and I want to celebrate with a gift for two people who leave a meaningful comment. Because the story is about Holly and her diamond necklace, the first prize is a Tivoli Heart Necklace and the second prize is a free copy of my novella, Diamonds. Good luck. Check back tomorrow to see who won.


(Isn't the locket cute!)


Blurb for Diamonds:

Self-made millionaire Holly Charleston has come a long way since her homeless days. Sometimes, she believes life would have been simpler before fortune and fame. With every man she meets imagining dollar signs, she yearns for the one man who sees the real Holly. A mysterious wealthy stranger may be the one, but she must control her sexsomnia and trust issues if she hopes for a real chance at love.

Professional thief Drake Davenport is ready to begin an honest life. However, his last assignment leads him to steal the heart diamond necklace from a woman known as Ms. Frost. But Holly guards her heart close and her assets closer. Once Holly thaws to Drake's seduction attempts, he finds himself in a position of protecting her from a hired mercenary or living the life he believes he earned. Drake realizes the challenge of stealing the diamond is nothing compared to the challenge of stealing Holly's heart.

Sounds like a cool book, Dawn. The locket reminds me of the one a student gave me as a thank you for tutoring him in math...only his was gold with red stones (garnets or simply red crystals)

I'll be putting this one on my tbr pile.
