The Mating - the original Law of the Lycans book
Elise had no idea when she came home that day that she'd end up mated to a complete stranger. A new Alpha and the need for an alliance between packs have made her a pawn Excerpt: She lay beside him, staring blankly at the ceiling. The deed was done. They were mated. It didn't matter that she had no love for him nor he for her. Political alliances were more important than feelings...

This was the first Lycan novel that I wrote. It was written on a whim for a site called Fiction Press and was supposed to be a 'one shot' short story. However, response to the story was so overwhelming that I started to write another chapter and then another an another. I wrote and posted a chapter a day with no real idea of where the story was goings. The characters took over and the final result is this novel!

Love Nicky Charles! Both The Mating and it's sequel The Keeping were amazing (free ebooks). Great stories with characters you can't help falling in love with. I could not put either down until I was completely finished. Who needs sleep anyway!

I loved "The Mating" and "The Keeping." I read them both in a matter of days! The cliff hanger with "The Keeping" had me shouting out loud!!! I can't wait for "The Finding." Wonderful story! I fell in love with the characters instantly and the plot is exciting and keeps your attention! Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

I loved it! Nicky Charles is a cross between Lynsay Sands and Sherrilyn Kenyon. Paranormal romance, smooth, and something is always happening. There was never a good spot to put it down to take a break. Classic, cute, timeless, romantic, suspenceful, and unless you cheat, it is a surprise cliffhanger!! She has made my top 3 list, tying at second ONLY because she doesn't have a lot of books out!! Keep them coming! This could be a GREAT series! I would buy them all!!
