The Golddiggers series of thirty minutes of fun romance from CC MacKenzie - for busy people everywhere.
”Once upon a time there was a beautiful and sweet but dirt poor girl who met a wealthy guy with the world at his feet. Against the odds, they fell madly in love. But the guy was a complete dick and broke the girl's heart.
My name's Jon Castro. I'm a top ball player and I'm the dick.
The girl's name is Sukki Silver. These days she's a Golddigger. A fully paid-up member of the top burlesque troupe in the world. Yep, seems my sweet girl didn't wallow for long in heartbreak and misery. In the time we've been apart, she's moved on to carve herself a wonderful career, while I did my level best to destroy mine.
If you haven't already guessed, I've had issues to work through. I say had because over the last two years I've been forced to deal with the emotional crap that kept me trapped in a past I found I can't outdrink or outrun.
Basically I had two choices, deal or die.
I chose to deal.
Now I'm in a better place, as part of my treatment is to atone for my many sins.
To reach that goal I want Sukki back where she belongs — with me.
Trouble is, she isn't giving me the time of day.
Who can blame her?
See, love's a tricky thing.
Seems a man doesn't choose not to love someone.
The heart wants what the heart wants.
And this dick is back, and I'm gonna go down on my knees to make amends. Have you heard the phrase 'talk's cheap'? I agree with the sentiment, which means actions speak louder than words. It's actions Sukki needs from me. Will she give me a chance? Who knows? Nothing's ever certain in life, but by God I'm gonna fight for her...
Wish me luck."
"I have a secret and if I'm not careful, it might kill me..."
