    24-Karat Love

    You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Luckily that does not hold true for Paula and Chase. After a not-so-friendly run in at a coffee shop, they both go their separate ways. But as fate would have it, their paths cross again. Chase, a jeweler looking to remodel his home, used the recommendation of his father to choose an interior designer. That designer happens to be...Paula! Both agree to let bygones be bygones and move forward. Is love in the air?

    Kudos to Devon Vaughn Archer for a job well-done! The story is romantic and sweet. I love how he presents African-Americans in a positive light. His characters are intelligent, strong, and classy. I enjoyed "Christmas Diamonds" and would recommend to other lovers of romance.

    This is a fabulous holiday romance

    Her mother dumped her as a child on her grandmother who raised her with love. However, though beautiful and intelligent interior designer Paula Devine has a résumé of losers so has given up on a romantic relationship like that of her grandma whose husband proposed on Christmas.

    Diamond jeweler Chase McCord misses his wife Rochelle who died two years ago. He hires Paula to redecorate a room in his home. However, before they meet formally, they encounter one another over cappuccinos in a cafe in Silver Moon, Washington which she, tired of trite males, rips his skin for staring at her. After he takes her down a peg or two, they meet formally in his office. As she works the renovation, they are attracted to one another, but he has doubts due to his feelings of deserting Rochelle and one of her ex boyfriends seems to have her on a string.

    This is a fabulous holiday romance between a terrific female weary of the gender game and a wonderful somewhat fickle widower who is not afraid to exchange barbs. This pair makes a fine couple, but their respective pasts haunt them more than the ghosts visiting Scrooge. Readers will enjoy this fun tale as diamonds are a woman's second best friend after the love of their life.

    NICE STORY

    The story was good, the conflict at the end made Chase appear weak, being infuenced by a bitter stranger. Graphic love scenes to much, skipped through. I enjoy growing love not detailed sex. Romance becomes lost when love comes after sex. True lovemaking requires 'love' first

    Diamonds!!!

    This book was pretty interesting. I really enjoyed getting to read that old love that comes with having that someone special at your side. Paula and Chase had something special and it showed throughout the story. I did wish the story had something a little bit extra, but I am not left unsatisfied. Even though, I was getting a little bit concerned that bringing up Rochelle constantly was seriously going to bring this book down. I am happy to say that I could read this book without getting bored to death. The climax was pretty good even if it was not necessary. This story did not need the inference of that secondary charcter to cause strife. I could say more about some things that could have been taken wrong for reader because it did for me, but I still enjoyed this book.
