About the Book

Intelligent and lovely Emma Hayward is the pride and joy of her father, renowned archaeologist Rupert Hayward. Having graduated from college, Emma is intent on following in her father’s footsteps to become an archaeologist in her own right. After extensive research from decades of digging in Egypt, Rupert believes there remains an undiscovered intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings. With financial backing secured, Rupert decides to bring his family to Egypt, and Emma is thrilled to begin excavation on her first official dig. When the Haywards arrive in Egypt, Emma is introduced to the newest member of the excavation team, exotic and handsome Winston Spencer. Half-Egyptian and half-British, Winston finds himself drawn to the blond beauty, even though she is engaged to another man. Working and living together day in and day out, the two archaeologists find themselves falling in love amid the endless sand and sultry heat of Luxor. But as the team closes in on the tomb of the famed King Nebnenbuta, someone among them wants nothing more than to destroy it all. Emma and Winston must stop a killer before he strikes again, and before they lose their one chance at happiness.

About the Author

As an Indie author, I have placed several excerpts for my novels here. I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

Nicola spent her childhood in Los Angeles with her parents and younger sister. As a young student in elementary school, she had a great fondness for reading and began to write creatively. Her fifth grade teacher encouraged her to keep her creative stories and to continue to write which she did.

She graduated from university with a degree in communications and held a variety of positions in journalism, education, government and non profit. While her writing during this period was business related as she wrote for a newspaper, marketing newsletters and press releases she remained dedicated to romance fiction. She began to write long chapters on a website for romance and was voted top romance story for "The Sheik and the Slave."

She soon had a following of loyal fans and started a blog to focus solely on her stories. Her fans are amazing and she remains deeply indebted to them. They have encouraged her to continue writing and have been extremely supportive.

Nicola has traveled extensively throughout Europe, China and Central America. She speaks basic Spanish and has a love of all languages. Nicola's goal is to create rich characters with a strong male lead and a passionate female lead. She also strives to set her books in places not normally written about such as Arabia in "The Sheik and the Slave."

"We all want a happy ending but I like to create some friction and chase before my leads come together," Nicola has said.

Her thirteen novels are available on Amazon.
