My name is Katina Jewel Hernandez pen name Tigris Eden. I am eternally 29 years old. I love to write, read, and listen to music, watch movies, and travel. My biggest goal right now is to be waited on hand and foot. Possibly a group of hot cabana boys, maybe two or three door men, a butler and personal chef and driver, for now. I adore oatmeal crème cookies and long walks to my pillow. I’m pretty laid back and I love to laugh.
I’m an ex-military brat, and have been to a number of wonderful places. I’ve been writing for as long as I was able to put pen to paper. I use to write music and play flute. So if it wasn’t music notes jumping at me to be put on paper it was words. True story: When I was growing up in Germany my father and I watched a lot of musicals. Sound of Music, Annie…. You name it I’ve watched and probably know the words by heart. Anyway, I thought life was a musical and my first day of school I sang the entire day. Whether it was hello, my name is Katina or can I go to the restroom. Two years later I was asked to write about my very first day of school. When I wrote my story the teacher didn’t believe me, told me I was a big story teller. So I’ve been telling stories ever since, whether it was with music or words.
I live in Cypress, Texas with my Husband LL and my boys Darryl Joseph and Andrew and a newly acquired puppy name Kastor. When I’m not writing, I’m balancing payroll taxes, moving state wages, or answering that age old question. “Why don’t my wages in box 1 equal what’s on my pay stub.
Excerpt from Enslaved in Shadows:
The men in the conference room settled back in their seats and Gabe led her over to a chair while Oliver put his head in his hands and plopped down in a chair to his right. She couldn’t tell if he was exhausted or not, he looked perfect. A man at the very end of the table stood and approached her; his long strides ate up the distance until he stood inches in front of her. He was taller than even Gabe. A giant. Long mahogany dreads fell to the middle of his back. He wasn’t dressed like the others. He wore a Valentino suit without the jacket and a white linen button up shirt rolled at the sleeves, strong masculine arms were roped in thickly veined muscles. He had a silver torque around his neck. It gleamed bright against his bronze skin, and his face was aristocratic. Hard edges and a straight nose, but it was his eyes that were the most alarming, a shade of violet than she’d ever seen, dark amethyst, fathomless and arrogant. Immortals always had that extra flare humans didn’t, and this immortal had an extra helping.
He grinned a knowing grin. One that said he knew he was every woman's fantasy come to life. If she hadn’t sworn men off, he would definitely be the object of her desire. Hot, dirty sex was pouring off this man in waves. If she weren’t careful, she’d get sucked under.
“I’m Captain Dravaggio,” his hand warm and strong gripped hers. “Thank you for agreeing to meet with me and my team.”
He quickly introduced her to the men in the room. There were a set of twins that sat across from her; one was smiling, as he lit a red cigarette, blowing the smoke in her direction and the other glared. She didn’t really take in their looks because stupid her was still eye fucking the captain. What was it about him? It made her want to jump out of her seat and onto him. There were some other names tossed about some guy she think she heard him called Adam and another guy he referred to as Hawke. Then there was Gabe and Oliver. Dravaggio was saying something about missing team members and apologizing for their absence when the guy with the red smoke was sitting directly next to her now. How the hell did he get so close without her noticing?
“And, because you are so enamored with our captain,” he held out his hand and grabbed hers, breaking her out of the trance. “I’m Royce. Resident badass, all around swell motherfucker, and every woman's dream come true. Very nice to meet you.”
