Majestic Pearls by Katija O. - Release Day Blitz & GIVEAWAY!

TITLE: Majestic Pearls 
AUTHOR: Katija O 
RELEASE DATE: 28th February 2014 


Some believe in fate, others not so …

Who would think that a simple car accident could determine someone’s destiny?

But when Mia Tandy meets Nicholas Devlin their worlds are
Automatically changed.

Falling in love should be simple, should be natural and joyous, but,
As they are from different worlds, there are many obstacles thrown
In their way.

There is one thing though, that no one can control and that is
Undying love.  Fate has brought these two together, and class is keeping
Them apart.

What they don’t realize is they are connected, neither one
Of them knowing this.

One person holds the key to this secret.

A secret from yesteryear, this secret and this secret alone
Holds the answer to how their destiny will






 Not to stray from the common Author clichĂ©, I loved to read as a child – I actually excelled in reading from a young age.  This was definitely to my advantage.  In saying that I only enjoyed reading “happily ever after stories.”

As I grew older my pleasures turned to “teen romance stories” with the obvious transition being heavy love stories and of course Jackie Collins’ novels.

Then due to relationship and work commitments my reading all but ceased until my children were at an age where I could steal and hour or two (which then became and hour or four). 

A few years ago I discovered the Twilight Saga, this kept my thoroughly entertained for years as I read and re-read numerous times… Enter 50 Shades.

Whilst I was a little fearful to read this erotic tale, something tugged at my inner thoughts and I succumbed, like everyone around me falling for the likes of one Christian Grey. 

I continued from that moment reading many many stories and getting involved with Indie Authors from around the globe – something then happened to me.  I awoke one Saturday morning with a whole story fixed in my mind.  This had happened to me a lot over the years but this story was so clear and concise and I acted on in with the inspiration of the Indie Authors.

That’s when my first novel Majestic Pearls was born – it has grown from there and is a beautifully work in progress.  In the interim, I wrote my current story, a novella entitled Que Sera Sera.

When I'm not at my desk, I'm reading – beta reading, or just plain reading.  As a full time mother and wife my life is very full.  My other passion, other than writing and family is Music … music from yesteryear is my genre.

ONE TO KEEP By Tia Louise *unedited draft, subject to change* expected release March 2014 © 2014, Tia Louise 

The condo is dim as I cross back to the kitchen for a bottle of water. Only one lamp is lit, and I go to the enormous glass windows to look out and wait. A few lights dot the downtown area. It’s either too early or too wintery for most people to be out. With the tip of my finger, I touch the cold glass and try to imagine where he is right now. How much longer he’ll work. When he’ll be here with me… A noise at the door causes me to turn, and my chest squeezes when I see him standing in the doorway. His heavy grey overcoat makes him look even taller than six-two, his shoulders even broader. His dark hair is longer than usual, and it just touches his collar in gentle waves. Vibration hums under my skin as I watch him silently, my fingers curl with longing to touch him, slide through that hair. He shrugs off the top coat and hooks it on the rack, and I almost sigh audibly when I recognize the suit he’s wearing. It’s the same one from all those nights ago when I would gaze at him on my laptop screen. Back then I only had my memories and my hands. Now I have the real thing. Gorgeous. He doesn’t see me, doesn’t even know I’m here, and it takes all my strength not to call out to him. I’m waiting, wanting him to see me first. The entry light is on, and his attention is occupied by the stack of mail in his hand. I can see the tension in his lined brow, and even his shoulders appear tight. Touching my lips with my tongue, I have an idea for massaging that stress away, that luscious suit in a pile on the floor, my mouth covering his skin with kisses. I remember the band holding up my hair and quickly pull it out. My long, dark waves sweep over my shoulders at the exact moment his eyes rise. Beautiful blue eyes meet mine, and the center of my body turns to hot liquid. My arm drops, parting the robe, revealing a peek of my nude body underneath, and his confusion is quickly replaced by desire. Without a word, he tosses the letters on the table and shrugs out of the suit coat. He crosses the dining area fast, and I can barely breathe as he approaches, removing more clothing with each step. Tie off, his fingers unfasten buttons. He’s in front of me, shirt open, undershirt the only thing between his skin and mine. It’s possible I’ll come the moment we touch, but I snatch the edge of the thin white tank and push it up his lined torso, pressing my lips against his heated flesh. Large hands are inside the robe, sliding down my bare skin, and a little cry comes from my throat when he grips my ass lifts. I’m off my feet in a sweep, weightless in his arms. My back is pressed against the cold glass, and my breasts are flat against his bare chest. His waist is between my thighs, pressing, teasing, as his mouth muffles the noises coming from my throat. Firm lips push mine apart, and our tongues meet, his exploring my mouth hungrily [KISSING]. Our kisses are desperate, ravenous, and every time his hips push against my clit, fire surges hotter through my body. I need him inside me now. The only sounds are the little noises of pleasure coming from my throat, and his scent is all around me, flooding my senses. My fingers dig into his broad shoulders, pulling him closer to me as his soft lips and scratchy beard blaze a trail from my jaw down my neck to my breasts. I can’t help a moan as my head drops back against the glass. “Oh, god,” I gasp as he catches a straining nipple in his mouth and gives it a hard pull. The sensation registers directly between my legs to my core, and my insides tighten in anticipation. My hands are in his hair, pulling, threading the soft, dark locks, as his kisses climb back up my neck. He’s consuming me, pulling little bits of my skin between his teeth as he goes. “Now, baby. I need you now,” I whisper, begging. I can’t take much more of this before I explode. My thighs are already trembling and jerking, my inner muscles tight and aching…
