About Nicky Charles

Nicky Charles is an independent writer/publisher who became an author quite by accident. She always saw herself as a ‘reader not a writer’ and can thank—or blame, depending on the day—her friend/editor and fellow author, Jan Gordon, for the career she now finds herself immersed in. The tale goes something like this:

In January of 2009, Nicky penned a fanfiction for an old TV series, “Scarecrow and Mrs. King”, and soon became ‘hooked’ on story-telling. She joined a fan-based group for the show and through there met Jan Gordon. It was an idle comment made by Jan during a review of Black Silk (Jan’s newly published book) that inspired Nicky to write her first original story. Over the course of the next two months, she hastily scribbled down a suspense-driven romance entitled Forever In Time and presented it to the world in August of 2009. Soon after, she wrote The Mating, a paranormal romance and followed it up with The Keeping and The Finding. The three stories formed a loose paranormal trilogy called The Law of the Lycans. Nicky continues to expand the Lycan series and has a long list of possible plots waiting in the wings.

Nicky has recently retired from her day job and now hopes to concentrate more of her energy on her new passion of writing.

When she writes, Nicky sees the story unfolding in her head like a movie and tries to include enough detail so that readers can ‘see’ the story just as she does. The sights, sounds, smells and sensations of a scene are almost as important to her as the actual plot.

Creating main characters that are ‘real’ is also something she strives for. Nicky tries to make each character different, to give them an interesting backstory, to make their actions and feelings logical and to hopefully make the reader actually care what happens to the people in the story.

Nicky lives in Canada and tries to stick to Canadian spelling and punctuation in her work, in support of her country. She is an avid supporter of animal shelters, nature conservancy, food banks and a variety of other charities. Currently she has two ‘inside’ cats and one official ‘outside’ cat though a number of strays seem to take up residence in her garden each year.

When not writing, Nicky enjoys reading – though she often bemoans that she seldom has time for it any more. Her favourite authors are Elizabeth Peters, S.C. Stephen and Cherise Sinclair. She also enjoys spending time out in nature, gardening, taking day trips and eating dark chocolate.

This book is awesome!!! I still can't get enough of Damien. I love everything about the book, from the beginning until the end. I love Sam's character, it fits perfectly with Damien’s. I loved it when they argued, agreed, fought and adored each other. I was happy that Damien finally let go of Beth’s memories. He deserves to be happy with no less than the mighty “ Sam Harper” LOL. Applause to Nicky for having written an amazing and brilliant book!

So where do I start? I laughed out loud, I cried out loud. This book, by far, was my favorite from the Lycan Series.
I got back into reading a couple of years ago. A friend told me "You should read this book about Lycans." WTH is a Lycan? I soon found out. Ms Charles has captivated me from the very beginning. Her first book, The Mating, had me wanting more. Since then I have (im)patiently waited for each one to come out. Ms. Charles has a way of making you feel each character, each feeling, each emotion. I highly recommend her Law of the Lycan series. It will leave you wanting more. I can't wait for the next book.

I am a fan of Nicky Charles and there isn't a thing I wouldn't read by her. I impatiently waited for this book! I fell in love with Damien when we first met him and my heart was in pieces for all he has had to go through, he so deserves a happily ever after, but only with me. *sigh* Since we can not be together, Sam is a perfect fit for him. This story is filled with mystery, suspense, and humor, I love Sam! She is a kick butt kind of woman, I admire that quality. She loves her pack and will do what it takes to make sure they thrive. I won't say anymore, but this, we get to take a peek into some of the other characters from previous books and see how things are with them. I just love this book! Go grab yourself and copy, settle in to read a wonderful story, you will not be able to put it down until the Fin

Just when we think its safe to step away from 'The Law of the Lycans' Nicky Charles brings us all back with this amazing book.

The story of Damien Masterson is cunning, smart and heart wrenching. We all know how the death of this mate sent him to the brink of sanity, we all know how it was those he called family that kept him hanging on. But now he hides behind the whole 'rogue' mystique and on the brink once again.

Nicky uses our love for her former hero's like Kane and Elise Sinclair and Reno Smith to build believable scenarios to help Damien regain something of a 'normal' life. She also updates us all on our favourite characters as they are entwined within the storyline.

New characters such as Sam Harper and the Chicago pack, Dante and the mysterious Mr Stone keep us all captivated to the last word.

Unexpected sub plots will have you saying 'I never saw that coming.' And in some cases will raise your anger to boiling point. A box of tissues is required too as you witness a heartbreaking good-bye.

This book is a must for any woman needing a 'girl power' fix. Sam Harper is strong, determined, confident in who she is and the role she has. She's also sexy and cocky and has Damien reeling with confusion as he still grieves for his lost mate. With the back streets of Chicago being the setting, it's a perfect mix for their story.

A very easy five stars, you will not be disappointed. It is time and money well spent. It is a story you can read over and over again and along with the other five (The Mating, The Keeping, The finding, Bonded, Betrayed, days of the rogue) they make a great collection for any reading device......
