Seeking to heal the wounds of her recent divorce, Noelle, a beautiful and successful travel writer, has come to lose herself on an idyllic Caribbean paradise. Yet not even the breathtaking scenery can erase the memories that haunt her, nor the doubts that plague her about her career choices. Lonely and alone, she wonders about her future while dwelling on the past. Malika is counselor and a native of the island. Seductive and free-spirited, she uses her empathic skills to help others. Staying at the same resort as Noelle, an encounter at the pool opens the door to a fated relationship that reveals and explores the Nicole’s true, sensual nature. For a few magical days, the women share body and soul in a journey of transition and hope for the future. Here is a brief excerpt from this short story: Malika’s fingers traced tiny circles on Noelle’s palm. Each feather light touch ignited a slow burn in Noelle’s body. She gazed into Malika’s eyes, and before either could question the action, their lips melded in a kiss. Slow and sensuous at first, their tongues gently exploring ripe lips, the kiss exploded in a passion that consumed them. Falling into an embrace, they pressed their bodies together, breast against breast, curve against curve. Malika’s scent, the slightly salty taste of her burnished silken skin, the coarse texture of her hair, drove Noelle into a state of heightened awareness. Every motion, every touch was an erotic journey of the mind and senses. Malika rolled on top of her, her eyes dark with desire. Impatient hands eagerly stripped each other, their clothes discarded on a beach shielded from prying eyes. Fingers forged new paths of exploration, Malika’s touch a journey into sensuality no man had ever approximated. Surrendering her inhibitions, Noelle eagerly opened herself to Malika’s mouth as she felt her thighs opened and caressed, first with fingers, and then with Malika’s agile tongue.
