Author Bio:

Nicole lives in Texas with her husband, Colt, three kids and four dogs. It's quite the household and most of the time you'll find her locked away in her office... writing. When she's not, you'll likely find her reading, swimming, or hanging out in the yard with the dogs, doing her best to keep them in line. (And no, it doesn't usually work)

Ever want to let that other part of you loose? The part that has secret desires and taboo fantasies? Well, that's what brought about Nicole Edwards. She's an alter ego. In truth, she's a full-fledged part of me. The secret part made up of sinfully hot desires and erotic thoughts. Get to know how Nicole's naughty mind works by checking out her books!

About me... hmmm...

Ok, I've been asked to provide a little bit of "real" information about myself. That's harder to do than you think it is, especially for someone who has difficulty talking about themselves. ;) But, here goes...

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a kid, I loved creative writing and as I got older, I got acquainted with those voices in my head and that led to putting my stories on paper. And now, here I am all these years later, spending my days doing what I love most. I decided to give myself over to writing full time in 2012 and I haven't looked back. I spent nearly 13 years in the corporate world and I have to say, this is a bit of a change (just a little) and I am loving every second of it.

I live in Texas with my husband and three amazing kids and our four beloved dogs. If I'm not writing, I'm usually reading. I devour everything I can get my hands on. I love romance of any type and being an Indie author myself, I'm always looking for new Indies to support. I haven't always been into reading, but about eleven years ago, I picked up a book - I'm pretty sure it was by Nora Roberts - and from there, I haven't stopped. Before I began writing full time, and my characters started taking up so much of my time, I was reading about 200 books a year. That has dwindled somewhat, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read.

An interesting fact... I don't watch television - aside from the occasional news anyway. I will go see a movie or two rarely, but for the most part, I get all of my entertainment from a book. Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Lora Leigh, Jane Rylon, Lori Foster, and Jaci Burton just to name a few.

Review by Yvette:

In the fictional universe of Nicole Edwards, the author creates stories where sexual experimentation is as much a way of life as eating, sleeping and breathing. Her characters engage in illicit and taboo sexual acts with complete abandon, fulfilling their deepest desires and making no apologies for doing so. Going into Braydon, the sixth book in the author's Alluring Indulgence series, I was expecting more of the same. Imagine my surprise when the books' protagonists are instead thrown into an unrelenting emotional maelstrom, forced to face the consequences of recklessly succumbing to their baser instincts. Braydon follows the evolution of the twisted love triangle between the three main protagonists – Braydon, his twin brother, Brendon, and their shared partner, Jessie – as they each attempt to redefine their roles in their unconventional relationship.

Braydon Walker and his twin brother, Brendon, have a history of sharing women, including their most recent love interest, Jessica Prescott. Their previous sexual encounters have always been about seeking physical pleasure and removing emotions from the equation, at least until Jessie came along and Braydon realized the depth of his feelings for her and how those feelings could impact his relationship with Brendon. The author's decision to designate all three of these individuals as narrators only complicates matters, as feelings of confusion, heartache, and despair emanate from multiple directions. While the strong familial connection between the Walker brothers has been integral to the success of the Alluring Indulgence series, Braydon exposes the weakness in Braydon and Brendon's seemingly impenetrable bond.

With its unusual foundation, the would-be relationship between Braydon and Jessie is complex to say the least. They each yearn for the other with a considerable passion but are too afraid to voice their feelings for fear of the repercussions. It's a sweet kind of torture, being privy to their innermost thoughts and knowing what each individual is feeling but having to wait until they are emotionally equipped to confront their true feelings. Messy and complicated entanglements - romantic or otherwise - aside, Braydon is about the title character's journey to becoming his own person - shedding his assumed role as one half of a whole and asserting his own distinct personality.
