Two million dollars secured Noah Crawford the most enticing woman he has ever known... but at that price, can he ever afford to set her free?
Imagine waking up to your worst nightmare. In 1976, Cathy Kurtz, at the tender age of sixteen, lost her father, mother, oldest brother, and sister-in-law in a private plane crash. In 1989 she lost her surviving brother to AIDS. As a single mother, Cathy struggled to take care of her son while still being haunted by the tragedies of losing her family. Suffering gave Cathy a unique awareness of the pain an individual can live through and still be able to propel their life forward in a productive manner. A Christian upbringing was her only outlet to find peace, and the ability to live through the pain. Cathy considers her deep understanding of surviving tragedies, and using her pain to enrich her life, as a calling from God to serve others and assist them in finding the courage to move forward. Any young woman who has experienced a tragedy or who has ever been abused and tossed aside as trash will relate to Cathy's journey. Cathy reveals that if she can live through the pain, anyone can be a survivor and have a successful, rich, and blessed life. "Living Through The Pain The Lonely Me" is about the universal journey of emotional and spiritual pain.
Welcome to book 2 of the series as we go deeper into the private lives of Celestine, Julian and Alexander. This series is a side series based off 'The Company Playground' Series. 'Can I go home now?' I thought to myself as I glanced across the table, barely glancing at my latest disaster in my attempt to find my new muse... Ian. Every woman's dream... Almost. 5'10", tan, built, brown hair and blue eyes and if I were to judge by the looks the waitress kept slipping him , attractive. I didn't see it because I didn't feel it. Nothing. No spark, no chemistry, no angels singing... Nothing. To understand where I am now, sitting next to quite possibly the most boring man I've ever met, I first need to tell what led me to this point... I am the Director of Security for a private medical corporation, and I do love to be in charge...So much so that the men I meet steer clear of me. I also have a seemingly permanently empty assistant's position that no-one seems to last more than 2 days in. Two birds, one stone... Time to think (and look) outside the box. My idea of an answer to my little problems? Place my own version of a 'help wanted' ad and then cross my fingers I find my new toy, I mean muse, to 'inspire' me to be more... creative. Really, is it so hard to find a guy who can talk about something other than himself, who does what he's told and does so with a smile? That is both responsive and docile? That actually understands that the role of an assistant is very close to that of a submissive/slave? That can keep up with me both inside and outside of these glass walls I work behind? Ian has not passed the test, he is not what I'm looking for, and he knows it by the end of lunch when I excuse myself to pay the tab and leave him sitting there staring after me. My last thought as I leave the restaurant 'I have one more to interview tomorrow, and Julian Devereux hopefully fits my requirements.' The fact that there is only one applicant left after the 68 I received for the ad is not lost on me as I climb into the cab to go home to prepare for my morning interview...
