Author of Heartwarming Australian Romance

Country town life. Love and medical drama.



Nicki's latest Australian fiction release

Should you keep score when it comes to love?

As an adopted only child, Annabel Norton, has always wanted children of her own. Having recently retired from playing semi-professional football for the AFLW, now would be the perfect time—except she’s still reeling from the failure of her last relationship.

Special Operations Group police officer, Ben Naylor, loves the idea of a family, but with two marriages under his belt, he figures commitment isn’t for a man like him. Especially as he needs time to process all he’s lived through in his job. That’s why it makes no sense that he falls head over heels for Annabel the very first time he sees her. He does the right thing and keeps his distance…and then she moves in next door.

As their feelings become impossible to deny, Annabel starts to think that they might be made for each other. That is until she learns about an unexpected secret in Ben’s past. For a chance at happiness, can she open her heart and accept that a future with Ben could involve more than children of her own?

About Nicki Edwards

I am a city girl with a country heart. Growing up on a small family acreage on the outskirts of Geelong, I spent my formative years riding horses and pretending the neighbour’s farm was my own. After spending three years in Bathurst, a regional city in New South Wales, my love of small country towns was further developed.

One day I dream of escaping to the country with my husband Tim to live on some land, surrounded by horses, dogs, cows and sheep. Until then I live vicariously through the lives of the characters in the rural romance novels I love to read and write.

I write medical and rural romance and women’s fiction, and when I’m not reading, writing or dreaming about country town life, love and medical dramas, I can be found working as a Critical Care Nurse in a busy regional Emergency Department, or in the Intensive Care Unit where many of my stories and characters are imagined.

Tim and I live in Geelong, Victoria and we have four adult children, two of whom have moved out of home. Tim is the senior pastor of a Baptist Church.

Life is busy, fun, and at times exhausting, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. I am blessed.
