After a brutal and potentially fatal assault, Mia Tandy finds herself alone and abandoned by not only her true love Nicholas—but possibly the one who truly loves her, Dr. Xavier Young.
In an attempt to help her get her life together, her brother, Peter, and a silent partner set up a small café just for Mia … something she’s always dreamt of. Possibly giving her a new lease on life.
On the other side of town, Nicholas’ father, Reynold has plans of his own, trying to uncover a long lost secret that’s about to turn, not only his own world around, but causing a rippling effect that will touch Mia and his son Nicholas.
Mia, trying to stay away from the likes of that wealthy world and the negatives that come with it, once again has it all thrown right back in her path when Nicholas returns and the secrets that have been in the past are now in full view, confronting all of them.
For both Nicholas and Mia, trying to keep away from each other is proving to be their biggest challenge yet. Once again, obstacles and social status are keeping them apart, but their love for each other is growing day by day.
Will their love be enough to get them through the torment, the lies and the challenges?
Not to stray from the common Author cliché, 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.
