He had everything to give a woman except his heart. He referred to their relationship as a perfect arrangement. Her emotional struggle to stay with him tore her apart until she realized he didn’t own her.

Alivia quit her job, ended her ‘arrangement’ and left for Sunset Beach for her tenth reunion. There she’d left a broken-hearted Jacob Adams. Hesitant to see him again quickly disappeared with one sunset, one kiss. Will sunset kisses and one crazy idea with her best friends keep her in Sunset Beach?

There were no clouds in the sky. Jacob felt it to be a sign of promise for a calm, peaceful night. His wish for her to return had come true. This time he wished for her to stay. As he got closer he inhaled her scent deeply as the ocean breeze carried it to his senses.

“Liv.”

She turned and smiled. “Jacob, just in time.”

She said no more as she held out her hand to him. He reached for it. Her fingers intertwined with his and he stepped up beside her. Silence remained as they watched the sunset just as they had so many times. It felt like she’d never left. No matter how much time had passed and wherever their lives had taken them, it no longer mattered. Their special spot remained theirs. Jacob smiled as the tip of the sun drifted beyond the horizon. He laughed.

“What’s so funny?” Alivia’s eyes met his.

He smiled. “Just remembering when we were kids and you thought the sun sunk and the water put out the fire.”

Alivia chuckled. “I was five!” she protested.

Jacob reached for her other hand. He lifted them both to his lips.

“I’ve missed you, Liv.”

Her eyes filled. She smiled.

“I missed you, Jacob. “Her eyes locked onto his gaze. She’d always been the most beautiful part of the sunset. He kissed her hands as he held them against his lips. He watched a single

tear fall upon her cheek. He leaned in and brushed his lips gently against her cheek to wipe it away. His head tipped down to rest upon hers. Her heart beat against him and his eyes closed. Silently he prayed her heart belonged to him. His heart belonged to no other.

WHO'S CHERISHED SUBMISSIVE IS THIS?

Alexandr's Cherished Submissive Cover 
  9006a-add-to-goodreads-button31
button synopsis
7 years ago
From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires. Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him. There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever. Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight. Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.

button About the author 

 With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

LIFE'S TOO SHORT FOR LEFTOVERS RIGHT?


Non Fiction
Date Published: July 23, 2015

Part inspirational rallying call, part first-person, autobiographical narrative, part eulogy for a treasured friend and mentor, “Life’s Too Short for Leftovers” takes the reader on a highly personal journey of self-discovery. Best-selling author Michael Ditchfield’s  “9 Lessons from a Third World Kitchen” – cleverly presented as courses on a menu – conveys a singular perspective on what it means to be human, and what is required of us as individuals to be active, engaged participants in humanity.

With delightfully dry wit and profound understanding, Ditchfield introduces us to Chef Noel Cunningham – his guide and teacher – along with a kitchen-full of congenial and extraordinarily noble real-life protagonists that have served as both lightning rods and light posts in the author’s relentless (albeit sometimes reluctant) pathway toward personal transformation.

Ditchfield is a master storyteller, and his conversational style skillfully relates timeless philosophies to contemporary challenges and opportunities that face Third World countries today. Based on his extensive experience in Africa, Ditchfield brings a generous portion of lucid insights and aha moments to the table, leading the charge toward improved, positive outcomes – in our own lives, and in the lives of others. “Life’s Too Short for Leftovers” is a stimulating and memorable must-read for students of Life.


EXCERPT

Bon App├ętit

“Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.”
~Albert Schweitzer

I have surrounded myself with Chef ’s nurturing wisdom every day since his ghostlike face appeared before my sheepish eyes on that memorable evening in 1992. I am forever grateful to Noel for keeping me close, transforming the course of my life. He welcomed me into his kitchen as a friend and “closet chef” to learn the finer touches of his culinary expertise … and to understand his deeper mission. I learned how to scramble eggs without using any utensil except the pan, and I endeavored to give of myself to help him offer the children of Africa a better tomorrow. He was my mentor and friend on a much deeper level than anyone else in my life. As a mentor, he schooled me for hours on end; and as a friend, he scolded and embraced me with equal vigor.

For many years, I was a student in Noel’s kitchen of wisdom, where the apron of his profession had become the very fabric of his life. The kitchen that we both shared was not limited to this country, but boiled over into the Third World, where every child has a right to live, to have enough to eat, and to be respected as a human being.

I will never graduate, because there is no graduation ceremony; I will never receive a diploma, because there is no diploma. But what I achieved in Noel’s kitchen is a degree of hope that I can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others—after changing my own life first. I took a sharp knife and burst the bubble that had become the gilded cage I’d lived in since my arrival from the shores of Jolly Olde England. Since then, I’ve made a point of surrounding myself with people wiser than me.

This book intends to illustrate how changing our lives enriches our lives. Think of the times when we sit for a long period of time and one leg starts to fall asleep; we adjust our bodies to feel more comfortable. In the big picture, life is no different. We usually only change when we are uncomfortable. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Some cooks only replace a menu item when it’s run its course. But the great chefs are always changing their menus. Whether because they are tuned in to seasonal influences or because they know they so much more to offer, they are not afraid to add or remove something. They believe in themselves enough to make those kinds of decisions.

Changing when we’re comfortable means taking responsibility early enough to avoid discomfort. We can change even when things are going well. We can’t change yesterday’s menu; we can only change today’s.

“Only a fool trips on what is behind him.”
~Proverb

Of course, there are some things that stand the test of time, like Chef Noel’s Penne Bagutta with Chicken, Mushrooms and Broccoli, or Life with Integrity, Accountability, Love, and Decency. Both are abidingly satisfying.

The nine lessons set forth herein pertain to the emotions and interactions that we all face in our daily lives. The lessons evolved as a result of me sitting down around the fire with people of the Third World, listening to their voices that collectively resound with wisdom and love. Like most of us, they want better lives for their families, and are prepared to do what it takes to get there. It’s just a little more difficult when they are dealing with the particular challenges that
life has put on their table.

These lessons slice across the cutting board of life—from the relationships we have to ourselves to the relationships we have with others.

By taking a hard look at your motives and the motives of others in Read the Recipe to observing the temperature at which you’re functioning as you Preheat the Oven, you will begin to understand. In learning patience, forgiveness, and tolerance as you Simmer, Don’t
Stir, and in overcoming procrastination as you Clean Your Plate, you will begin to understand. In simplifying your life as you Just Add Water, you will continue to understand. You will begin to exceed your seeming limitations as you Bring to a Boil, and offer life’s riches to others as you Pass the Butter. You will discover that you can make a difference in your world by getting to
know your own kitchen … and then inviting others in, who are part of the world we share.

These nine lessons are ones that matter. They will have a quiet way of sneaking into everyday life. We will never go hungry if we accept personal responsibility, and neither will the people around us. We may not see now that change is on the menu, but we will find ourselves ordering it. We’ll never know how far the ripples will travel or how many lives we might touch unless we drop the first potato into the water. Whether it’s the taste of our own enriched lives or that of others, it’s a dish that we’ll order time and time again. We should spice our own lives the way we intend them to taste—we have all the right ingredients, and we are about to learn how to use them. With these lessons, we can choose a life the way we would choose a meal: wisely

Book Excerpts
EXCERPT 1:
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Three more gunshots rang out as his son David, stamps three bullet holes the size of golf balls in his dad's face. David calmly watches him slide down the wall and slump forward. While Clyde lies dead on the ground, momentarily twitching, the only thing David notices is the death grip Clyde has on the pipe with fumes still seeping out.
Satisfied, David swiftly throws his hood on before walking to the mouth of the alley and looking both ways. When all seems clear, he puts his head down and scurries out. Unbeknownst to David, a pair of eyes had been watching the entire time.
EXCERPT 2:
David was the last person left at his mother’s grave site and he is torn. Although Angela had a beautiful funeral, he still can’t fathom the idea that she's gone.
“Mom,” he mutters, as tears stream down his face. He steps up to the headstone and begins to speak out loud, “I guess even you'd be surprised to learn that under the most trying situations, even your thought's can turn against you. My conscience has eaten me alive, stress and duress are enemies to my mind. They are two of the primary factors, of that often used terminology “Pressure busts pipes.” It is also our human nature that intertwines our uncertainty with lack of will power. It proves that at the end of the day, we are without faith in God nothing more than mere mortals.  I won't fret mom, because there's an inner me that is stronger than all of these elements combined.”
David was overwhelmed with emotion and has to gather himself as tears fall freely and he cries like a baby.

EXCERPT 3:
Outside the Jail
“So David, tell me, what is your friend into?” Joy asked from the driver's seat.
David was calmly relaxed in the back seat and really didn't feel like talking, so he casually replies, “He bout to come out in a minute.”
“I know that, but I asked you.”
Damn she starting to irk me, “Yo, like I said before, he bout to come out.”
“Oh my bad, I just figured since that was your friend you might could fill me in,” she explained, slightly hurt.
David ignores her and continues to stare out the window watching the entrance.
Annoyed at his behavior, Lita quickly turns around in her seat, “David is there some type of problem?”
He was waiting for her to open her mouth. “Step out the car for a minute,” he ordered, while exiting the vehicle.
Lita quickly complied, prepared for a confrontation. Unfortunately, as soon as they stepped out, Tone was headed their way.
“I know that ain't my fuckin main man right there,” Tone pumped, as he approached.
David looked up with a smile, recognizing his comrade’s voice. Tone smiles as well as they embrace each other. “So they finally let you out, huh,” David said, taking a step back admiring his friend.
“Aye man you know they can’t hold a playa forever, but fuck all that, I see you doing big things out here,” Tone acknowledged, once he saw the Benz, “and you chilling wit models too,” he compliments, giving Lita a once over.
Lita was all smiles, liking Tone already.
“Dog it's nothing major, besides we got other things to discuss,” David said, becoming serious.
“Damn David, you not gone introduce me to your friend?” Lita asked.
“Oh Yeah, Tone this Lita, Lita this Tone.”
Tone was taken aback, because David's stories wasn't adding up, especially standing in front of this vixen. “Hold up,” he said, pausing for effect, “I know this ain't the infamous Lita?”
“Yeah that's her,” David answered, all smiles.
Lita was upset and her facial expression showed it, “What the fuck is that supposed to mean Tone?”
“Oh nothing sweetheart, but I have to tell you, this man right here,” he said, placing his hand on David's shoulder, “used to talk about you every day, and from my eyes I knew he was madly in love.”
Lita started cheesing. “For real?” she asked, staring at David with lust.
“Absolutely!” Tone said, discreetly winking at David. Just then Joy exit's the car and approaches, and Tone couldn't help himself as he spoke, “Damn homie, you ain't tell me we was on Rip the Runway,” he offered, staring at Joy with complete admiration.
Joy smiled at the comment, liking him already, he's not bad looking either, she thought.
Tone immediately sticks his hand out. “Angel,” he began, “please tell me your name.”
“Joy,” she answered, returning the gesture.
“I knew it had to be something like that, cause you damn sure bring joy to my eyes!” He then bends down and kisses the back of her hand.
Joy was showing all teeth, “David I like your friend.”
David chuckled, “I knew you would,” was his reply, and the rest was history. Joy and Tone hit it off from the jump and David actually started to warm up to her.
