Body Of Gold
By: Terri Talley Venters
Even in this post-Bernie Madoff era, it’s surprising how easily
investors unknowingly hand over their money to con artists, also known as money
managers. Chelsea Lynn Cobb earned the title of the youngest hedge-fund manager
at Trans World Investments in Chicago. This charming southern beauty proved a
financial genius, but her workaholic tendencies hinder her free time to meet
men who match her impossibly high standards. When she’s not kicking ass at the
office, she’s kicking ass at her Taekwondo class where she falls for her new
instructor, Troy Camden. With the exciting distraction of a new and passionate
relationship, she spends less time at the office until she discovers financial
scams operating at Trans World. Someone is stealing millions from investors,
but the evidence points towards her.

and one blue eye, awaits her destiny: a warrior of God with the face of an

Archangel flies into her life and sweeps her off her feet. Meanwhile, an evil
sorcerer captures witches, steals their powers and most of their nine lives,
and shrinks them to the size of a doll–a Nuremberg doll. But when he turns two
of the Manchester witches into dolls, the Manchester clan fights back with St.
Michael and divine intervention. Armed with the legendary copper cauldron, a
fire breathing dragon, and an arsenal of spells, good battles evil.

into Operation interrupted….

Our villa was right in front of the
beach. In the back, there was a huge dune that had a rock formation that looked
like a little cave…

“The sun peeks through, it is amazing…
Come in.” I said. 

It was a little crowded, but we
managed. He put his arms around me and we waited for the sun.

Having him so close was petrifying. We
didn’t know what to do. I wished I had lost those ten pounds already. A million
stupid things went on in my mind and he just stared. I wondered what he was
thinking, but I didn’t break the silence.

He leaned in and kissed me. Gently at
first, but then he opened his mouth and devoured me. His strong hands caressed
all of me. I didn’t want to let go just yet. I was terrified of waking up and
discovering this was all a dream.

Being in the cave felt like we were the
only humans in the world, and the beach was our home. He kissed my neck and
sucked gently, and when he went lower and kissed my breasts, I moaned my
desire. I leaned my head back giving his full access and finally let go of
everything, surrendering to him completely. He picked me up and pulled my legs
around him. I was against the rock—hot, humid and delicious.

I pulled his t-shirt off and felt his
chest against mine, felt him growing against me. He groaned and unzipped his
pants, mine too. This was it.

I felt him everywhere. Every cell in my
body felt the heat. The sun pushed its way slowly into the cave as he moved
inside me, slowly, primitive, perfect. I felt like screaming, crying and
laughing at the same time. My body trembled and reach its highest sensation,
which culminated with the warmth of his nectar.

Reluctantly, he put me down. “Are you
okay?” he asked while touching my face and kissing my forehead.

I looked up at him and said, “Yes.”

“You were right. Sunrises are amazing
in here,” he said softly in my ear.
