I'm continuing with Diamonds and Deceit. It's book 2 in the Diamond Series. Shelbie and Dagan will be put to the test in this chapter. Suspicion abounds on Dagan's side, and Shelbie is still clueless of Dagan's identity.

Here's the opening of chapter 5

Dagan stood on Shelbie’s porch, staring at the intricate carving on the front door, forcing himself to focus. He wasn’t the kind of man prone to fanciful thoughts or wishes. Until her. How had his life had become such a mess? More importantly, how to fix it?

Eyeing the elaborate woodwork, he admired Savannahians for their uniqueness. As a builder, it was refreshing to see solid wood, for a change, detailed work inside and out, but driving through a Victorian district and a Garden district and a—well, it just seemed overkill to him.

Turning back to the door, he should knock. 


Necessity made Shelbie Gilbrad a prostitute and thief, the thrill kept her in the business. But now she’s in trouble and doesn’t see it coming, which is odd because Shelbie’s been plagued by visions her entire life.
As a self-made billionaire bent on revenge, Dagan Hunter Caulfield has resigned himself of never recovering the rare green, teardrop diamond necklace. He’s moved on. His plan to surprise the woman he’s falling for, gets him the shock of his life. 

Shelbie and Dagan’s worlds collide and neither will ever be the same. Yet outside forces pit them against one another, putting their lives in danger. Can he forgive her past? Can she save the man she loves? 


  1. A fine bit of character building! Nicely done. :-)

  2. It's interesting getting to know him. It makes me want to know him better.

  3. I love his attention to the door itself. That he appreciates a solid door does say quite a lot about his character.

  4. Nice details. A bit of quiet before the storm.

  5. Love the attention to detail. Great 8!

  6. Personally, I would also stop to admire a finely carved door.
