I can't get away from ocean voyages. October 2011 Jewel Heist will be published.
Before the actual conception, Mary Keefe's chosen baby daddy robbed her grandfather's jewelry store stealing a million dollars in diamonds. To save her family’s legacy , she must bear a child. With time running out, her only recourse is to take a previously scheduled cruise and find a suitable sperm donor.
For investigator, John Kajiyama, the evidence against Mary Keefe is insurmountable. Yet, how could the beautiful woman falling into his bed be the jewel thief? In search of the truth, he embarks on an escapade that could unknowingly lead him to fatherhood.
Hi Vallie T. Mcninch:
I'm not an expert on diamonds, but I did talk to a few when doing research for Jewel Heist.
Here is some information that might help you.
What Is Diamond Clarity?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Diamond clarity is a term used to describe the absence or presence of flaws inside or on the surface of a diamond or other gemstone. A perfect stone with perfect clarity, or clearness, is rare, and most flaws that do exist in jewelry grade diamonds cannot be seen without looking at the gems through a jeweler's magnifying loupe. http://jewelry.about.com/cs/diamondc...ge_clarity.htm<o:p></o:p>
