Home isn't always where the heart is...

When lawyer Lara Beckham is sent to Africa to save her company's multi–million dollar investment, she's devastated at leaving her husband behind. But what can she do? She's needed on the other side of the world, fighting corruption in a country of rolling sand dunes and roaming camels.

On her return, however, it becomes clear that Tim has had plenty of company while she was away. Now, on top of dealing with a complicated legal system, an African coup and a marriage beyond saving, Lara has one more ball to juggle: her effortlessly seductive co–worker, Jack Norton, is joining her on the job...and he oozes trouble.

About the Author

Nora was born in Stalybridge, Cheshire, England, the eldest of four children. She moved a great deal as a child, including from
England to Australia, Italy and France.

From a modest family, she started part-time work at a young age in a French bakery where she did her best to ignore her favourite
cake – the fraisier, a delicious strawberry confection. Despite her long days studying and working, she devoured Jane Eyre and
Madame Bovary at night.

She met the love of her life and now husband Dominique in high school in Paris and never looked back. Nora subsequently
completed Hypokhagne at the Lycée Fénelon, a prestigious literary and humanities class. But she and Dominique decided to leave
France in search of a better life.

They migrated to Australia with two cardboard suitcases and enthusiasm by the bucket load for the land of opportunity they found. They settled in Western Australia and took turns studying at university, where Nora obtained a law degree. Although she worked as a lawyer for well over a decade, Nora never stopped writing in her spare time. For ten years she was a member of a Western Australian critique group run by acclaimed author Anna Jacobs. Her debut novel, Dark Oil, was published in 2013 by Escape Publishing, followed by Paris by Heart in 2014. 

She now lives in coastal France with her husband, their daughter, two dogs and two cats. She spends most of her days writing
novels, translating books, teaching English and generally enjoying life.
