April Showers, Diamonds, Daisies, My Birthday! by Marianne Stephens
"April Showers Bring May Flowers"...well, okay, but flowers are already blooming. Warmer weather is a treat. But, we do have to watch the stormy weather since it's tornado season in the Midwest.
"Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend"...sure. Wonderful to look at and so many terrific diamonds in jewelry settings to choose from. For me, the only diamond I wear is in my engagement ring. Somehow as the years have gone by, I've become less interested in wearing jewelry. I have a few more diamond pieces, but do I need to wear them to write? Do the laundry? Go food shopping?
White/clear diamonds are the most fascinating, but color ones certainly catch your eye.
Largest diamond found:
Cullinan Diamond: 3,106-carat diamond in Pretoria, South Africa.
Colors vary...not just white petals and yellow center!
I love all daisies and diamonds...how could anyone resist?
My newest story will be releasing in May: The Naughty Literati will offer another anthology of short stories: sensual to erotic romance! http://naughtliterati.com for details.
My story: Buy Adam:
Under false pretenses, Jessica wins Adam at a Charity Bachelor auction. Secret desires for each other ignite into passionate lovemaking. Will the truth divide them?
Our other two anthologies are available now:
