Author's Note

I had no intention of writing this book but near the end of The Mating, Ryne appeared and seemed to demand his own story! Of course, what else might one expect from a man such as Ryne. I greatly enjoyed writing this story; the characters were great fun to work with!

What readers are saying...

“Absolutely fabulous!”

“One of the best paranormal romance authors I have read thus far.”

“Wow, what a ride! This was fabulous.”

“One of my absolute favorite stories, The Keeping, sinks its teeth into the reader early on and does not let go. With secrets to be kept, lies to be uncovered, and a romance that seamlessly shifts between love, lust and hate, Nicky Charles has magnificently woven together a story that is funny, fascinating, gripping and incredibly sexy. A must read!”
