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 world's are changed.
Falling in love should be simple, should be natural and joyous but, as they are from different world's, there are many obstacles thrown in their way.
There is one thing 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 somehow connected.
One person holds the piece to this puzzle.
A secret from yesteryear and a certain string of pearls holds the key. These secrets not only are the key to a old romance but a key to their destiny.
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 an 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. I think the fact that these books were written by amateur writers stirred something inside of me.
A few years ago my dear mother passed away, I became really lost —books became my saviour. They took me to a very special place … away from reality. One night I had this dream, it was so vivid in my mind that when I awoke it was fresh and alive. It just kept growing and growing and that’s when Majestic Pearls was born. I've not looked back since.
Music is my passion, I love it! Though it needs to be genre’s from the fifties through to the eighties. Everything I do is done to music from my writing through to my housework—it soothes my soul.
I also have full time duties with my husband (fourth child) and our family business and three sons which all keeps me on my toes, there’s never a dull moment around my house.
Living in the beautiful Melbourne Australia, we have an abundance of restaurants and café’s which is my other passion … coffee dates with my wild and wacky high school friends … after thirty plus years we still catch up regularly and have a wild time. All of these people and my large family form my circle … a circle that I love and are thankful to have.
Nic's 4 Bare Naked Star Review
For me ‘Majestic Pearls’ was a modern take on a classic fairytale, but with an air angst and mystery.
A tale of two worlds colliding; an undeniable spark between a spoilt, upper class rich boy and a strong, independent middle class girl.
After a short lived and disastrous engagement to her childhood sweetheart Mia is determined to start fresh; focus on getting into school and rebuilding her relationship with her brother. She is not interested in relationships or finding love anytime soon. That is until Nicholas comes crashing in to her life...quite literally.
Nicholas Devlin has got everything. All mapped out by his parents; A position with his father’s company and an affluent girlfriend just waiting for him to put a ring on her finger. It’s all going to plan, that is until he meets Mia.
“I like her, I like spending time with her. I’m different around her. Just different. But you’re right, they won’t approve—it’s against his plans for me. It’s just bullshit.”
The spark and chemistry they feel is magnetising. They both feel the pull and they both want it. But can they find the love they crave and deserve? Or will the differences in Class be too much and keep them apart?
‘Majestic Pearls’ wasn’t just a story of twisted fate and forbidden love. This was a story of self discovery for both the hero and heroine. One which I loved being taken on. It’s a funny and endearing read, yet heartbreaking.
The secondary characters are absolutely brilliant and round off the book perfectly. From Mia’s over protective brother to Nick’s crazy self-centred witch of a girlfriend; you will find yourself falling in love with them (well most of them).
I did however find it quite difficult to get into to begin with, I just felt as though it was a little slow and wasn’t until I was about half way through that I became engrossed in the story being told. From that point I couldn’t put my kindle down. I fell in love with the characters more and the struggles they dealt with.
Overall, a very good start to what looks to be a promising series.
It will keep you guessing and begging for answers right up until the end. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and to discover what fate has in store for both Mia and Nick, as well as the rest of the characters.
