Carbon Copy

By: Terri Talley Venters

Lilly Allen has brains, beauty, and a trust fund. She's living in New York City and her career as a reporter is taking off. She's hoping the love of her life, Grier, will propose soon. She has it all, or so she thinks.

Grier Garrison, Create Life executive, is running the company while his father, Dr. Michael Garrison, is in the ICU awaiting a heart transplant. Grier knows the truth about Create Life and its shady side business. He fears Lilly and her twin brother, Luke, are in danger.

While working on two unrelated stories, stolen newborns and cloning, Lilly discovers a shocking connection. Horrific things are happening, but who is behind it all?


Tin Roof

By: Terri Talley Venters


In the sequel to Carbon Copy, Lilly Allen returns to her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, to be closer to her mother, help with her injured brother, and heal from the disappearance of her fiancé Grier Garrison. While she awaits Grier's return, she busies herself with her mansion renovations, her best friend's wedding, and her job as a news reporter.

But even her busy schedule cannot stem the worry over her brother's persistent amnesia and changes in personality. Is he her real twin? Or did they rescue a clone?
On top of this, the months of pining without a word from Grier begin to take their toll. She finds herself growing closer to her favorite cameraman, Joe. His confession of undying love, followed by a passionate kiss, has her questioning how much longer she can wait, and whether she wants to.

To further complicate matters, two unrelated news stories drag her into the seamy underbelly of the Charleston Police Department where murder and drugs are common occurrences.

In the chaos of a hurricane, another body washes ashore, and Lilly comes face-to-face with the murderer.

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.

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.

Sneak 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.
