A Dolphin Experience



My family and I spent a great few days celebrating an early Christmas with our extended family in a beautiful spot called Treachery. To top it off, we had gorgeous weather while we were there.

Looking over Treachery beach



















The park where we stayed had these magnificent majestic trees.
This is the Seal Rocks Lighthouse at the end of the beach.

Here we are relaxing on the beach.

While we braved the cold waters, we had some visitors.

A large pod of dolphins took over the beach. They hunted fish and played around us for hours. It was an unbelievable sight to see.


They even did some surfing.


This is right on the edge of the beach. They were in so close.


While we were having fun, so were the dolphins.




In Sinc.



What a fantastic show the dolphins put on for us. It simply topped 
off the weekend.

Fraser Island Camping




Thought I'd share with you some of my pics from our annual camping trip to the beautiful Fraser Island. Had the best weather in five years, saw heaps of whales, fought off dingoes in our camp and caught heaps of fish. 
See what you think.


Our campsite.




Dingos lurk on the beach all times of the day. 

They like to follow fishermen in hope of a free feed.




Out fishing.
Sunrise 


















We saw many humpback whales in so close.
Playing on their annual migration north.




Fishing late afternoon.




Another beautiful sunrise.






Cleaning fish.






The beach.







A mist drifted across the water. Amazing.




The Maheno. She has been here since 1935, and every year deteriorates a little more.



Beautiful trees found in the centre of the island in the rainforest.


I am so lucky to have such an amazing place right on my doorstep.

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.

Body Of Gold

excerpt

Chelsea looked at Troy with her big blue eyes. He stood so close to her. She heard his breathing. Their mouths were only inches apart.
“Chelsea, now tell me how this feels,” Troy said. Then his mouth came crushing down on hers. Troy took complete control of her. His breath was hot. His lips moved so wonderfully against hers. His tongue glided smoothly inside her mouth. He separated his lips from hers, just long enough for her to catch her breath. Troy looked at her hungrily, like a predator ready to devour her.
He moved in slowly this time, like he wanted to take his time and savor each second. Chelsea threw her arms around his neck and leaned into him. Their lips nearly touched. The longing to kiss one another again felt incredible. They stared at one another and breathed heavily. Troy pressed against her, and the warmth of his hot body consumed her.
Her hands cradled his head as she took control this time. She pulled his mouth back to hers and slid her tongue into his mouth. Troy responded to her advance with much enthusiasm. His hands moved around her back as he hugged Chelsea closer to him. Their breathing intensified, and she moaned softly. Troy’s tongue moved faster inside her mouth and the pressure of his lips increased. Their rhythm synchronized perfectly with one another. He kissed marvelously.
Chelsea felt Troy’s hardness grow against her belly. She moved her hands from his head to his shoulders. His skin felt so hot. She ran her hands over his strong muscles. Troy followed her lead and his hands began to wander over her body. He grabbed her ass and pulled her up towards his body. She felt his manhood pressing hard against her mons. Troy groaned at the sensation and his breathing grew frantic.
She ran her hands over Troy’s chest. The tips of her fingers barely touched his skin. She moved them under his tank top and gently grazed his nipples. Troy’s hands then duplicated the move on Chelsea. He slid his hands under her tank top and he cupped her eager breasts. The kiss grew even more intense, if that were at all possible. Chelsea and Troy moaned as their breathing grew heavier.
“Oh, Troy!” She moaned from the pleasure running through her body.
Troy almost lost control, they both did. They knew they were seconds away from total abandon. Chelsea had never wanted anyone before in her life as much as she wanted Troy Camden at this very moment.
Troy’s mouth broke away from hers. His lips moved over her ear and whispered. “If we don’t stop now. I am going to completely lose myself in you.”
“I know, you’re right,” she said. But she didn’t care. She couldn’t tear herself away from Troy. She couldn’t stop. Her mouth crushed down on his again.
Troy kissed Chelsea back with heated fever. Then he pried her off of his lips. He grabbed both of her hands and gently kissed her fingertips. Then he pulled her hands towards his chest, and his heart. He looked at her tenderly. His eyes looked glassy, like he was on the verge of tears.
“Oh, Chelsea, I want you more than anything right now. And even though we just met, you are so special to me. I want to do everything right with you. I don’t want to mess this up. I just know we’re going to be great together. So I really think we should at least share a meal together before we share a bed,” Troy said.
“Oh, Troy.” Chelsea held back her tears of happiness. Troy acted so sweet and so right. This felt like the beginning of something special.
“I have an idea. If you don’t have any plans for tonight, how about I cook you dinner?” Troy asked.
“Sounds wonderful. You can cook?” Chelsea asked. She wanted to cry at her good fortune. Not only had Troy behaved like a gentleman, he wanted to cook dinner for her.
Troy looked at his watch. “Okay, it’s five-o’clock, now. How about I come back here in two hours with all the groceries and I’ll cook? Do you like steaks?” He asked.
“I love them,” she said.

“Great, I’ll be back soon.” Troy kissed her sweetly on the lips, and walked out the door.

Guest blogger, Jenn Nixon

Please help me welcome fellow Wild Child Publishing author, Jenn Nixon. Her first novel, Lucky's Charm is now available in print as well as ebook format. The sequel, Lucky's Break will be available soon.

Jenn's love of writing started the year she received her first diary and Nancy Drew novel. Throughout her teenage years, she kept a diary of her personal thoughts and feelings but graduated from Nancy Drew to other mystery suspense novels.
She often adds a thriller and suspense element to anything she writes be it Romance, Science Fiction, or Fantasy. When not writing, she spends her time reading, observing pop culture, playing with her two dogs, and working on various charitable projects in her home state of New Jersey.


To protect her family and find a killer, Felicia "Lucky" Fascino assumed her adoptive father's identity and joined the network of moral assassins to finish the job he began. Eliminating the man responsible for murdering her mother has consumed her for the last five years. Completing the job is the only way Lucky and her family can return to a safe and normal life. Lucky's uncle, Stephen Chambers, hasn't come close to tracking the killer. He announces he's stepping down as her handler to concentrate on the investigation and names Elizabeth, his daughter, as successor.

Keeping secrets is a family trait, and Elizabeth's addition to the business tests Lucky's ability to maintain the pretense that the job doesn't affect her despite the fact that all network hits are hardened criminals. While keeping her family at arm's length, Lucky begins to feel the weight of her career choice and reclusive lifestyle. Then a chance encounter with an enigmatic hit man during one of her jobs turns into a provocative and dangerous affair. Distracted by the secret trysts with Kenji Zinn and mounting tension within her family, Lucky starts to make mistakes that threaten her livelihood and almost claim her life. When her family is targeted, Lucky must make several rash decisions she believes can save them and preserve her own sanity.




Coming soon from Wild Child Publishing:  Lucky's Break
