She knows little of her intended husband Edmund Bainbridge but is assured that he will offer her a comfortable, secure life. When Edmund spots the green-eyed beauty at a posh London tea room he decides she and no other will be his wife and he whisks her away to his tea plantation in Ceylon. However once in Ceylon, Edmund loses interest in his new bride and becomes distant and cold neglecting her for long periods of time. Meanwhile Alex falls in love with the beauty of Ceylon and its people. One evening she stumbles into a stranger in the Ceylon forest and is shocked to discover that the handsome stranger who holds her in his arms is the overseer of the plantation, Julian Bainbridge; her husband?s half brother. She is drawn to the dark, attractive Julian as her husband continues to neglect her. As Julian and Alexandria fight their feelings for each other Edmund begins to spiral out of control hiding a dark, ugly secret that threatens to destroy everyone.
About the Author: 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. 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 exotic places such as Arabia and Ceylon. ?We all want a happy ending but I like to create some friction and chase before my leads come together,? Nicola has said. ?The Tea Plantation? is her second novel.
