  1. 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 works full time and writes in her off hours, few though they may be In the next few years she hopes to retire from her day job and concentrate 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 back story, 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 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.

  1. I originally read this a year ago but now that Nicky has released the next installment I wanted to brush up on what happened in this one as Betrayed Days of the Rogue follows on directly after this.I loved it just as much as I did the first time around As soon as I started reading it the details started flooding back but I still wanted to go ahead and read the whole book again despite knowing what was going to happen.I still can t believe that Nicky writes these books and doesn t charge for them [...]

  2. I really had a difficult time deciding on the rating for this book I enjoyed the plot, however, I found myself skimming hundreds of pages The inner turmoil between the two main characters quickly becomes redundant as does the political discussions separating the two were factions I understand that background information is needed, but sometimes it distracted from the story Also, by page 600, I wanted to slap both of the main characters, shake them, and yell, Get over yourselves already Also, may [...]

  3. Bonded is the fourth book in Nicky Charles Laws of the Lycans series, but takes place before the events in The Mating the first book in the series I ve enjoyed this series quite a bit, and I thought Bonded was an enjoyable book, overall however, I thought a few of the devices used by the author stalled the story unnecessarily, and made Bonded my least favorite in the series thus far.This novel is a paranormal romance focusing on werewolves lycans, and is set in roughly the current time and place [...]

  4. I got this book for free on iBooks, and with all the great reviews, I figured I would give it a try I did like it and read all of it in about two days and I m a college student in final exams currently , but I did have some problems with the novel First off, I feel as though the author could have edited out about half of this story and it would have been the same, if not better There was a TON of unnecessary information and I found myself skipping over the majority of it Do we really need to rea [...]

  5. Yet again another great book by Nicky Charles Thrust into a self defense demo, Brandi gets blood bonded to Reno an Enforcer by accident Never telling him, because she doesn t want to trap him they spend years coming together for various reasons related to work tring to stop the purists through the lycan Link , similar to the FBI.Brandi goes back to her birth pack on a short vacation to find it corrupt with purists who expected her she calls Reno for help.This book was always moving It was a grea [...]

  6. There were some definite positives and some definite negatives, imho Negatives There were some pretty detailed sex scenes that I thought were a bit overboard I m not a prude, but the book didn t need it There was a bit of repetitiveness where entire paragraphs would be reiterated, sometimes only a few pages later Positives It had a great background and history that was written quite well and held my interest throughout the whole book The characters have flaws that are believable The characters a [...]

  7. I am a huge fan of the Lycan Law series and I love how Nicky Charles writes However, Bonded to me felt as if it dragged on and on never getting to the point Although, I enjoyed reading it, I would have to skip a couple of paragraphs just to get pasted the characters thinking I was utterly frustrated that it took all the way until the end of the book for Reno and Brandi to express their feelings toward each other I felt it was very repetitive in the way author explained over and over again the de [...]

  8. I probably would have given this book a 3.5 if that were a choice The author gives all of her books as free downloads and asks if you like the book to please consider donating to your local animal shelter I love that Part of me really liked this book It took a while for me to get into the story The beginning had a lot of background history, which was fine and necessary, but I am not sure if I like the way it was presented That being said, once the main story arc really took off, it was a great r [...]

  9. DNFI tried really hard with this one It gets such great reviews I thought it was me, and perhaps it is But I can t help but wonder what the reviews would look like if the book wasn t freejust sayinLong story short, this story just trudged along and had a lot of elements moments scenes whatever that just felt unnecessary to me This was my second try with this author I gave my first try 1 star so I think I ll avoid her stuff in the future I think it s so awesome that she publishes for free and I s [...]

  11. It was really hard trying to figure out what order to read the books in this series I have read the first 4 out of order with this being the last one I read, but it still has not lessened my enjoyment of the story I just convinced myself this was the way and they are just giving me background they didn t have time for before, yeah I am good at self delusion, it s why I read in the first place This was maybe a little longer than I thought it had to be, it made things a little boring at times But [...]

  12. Brandi finds herself attracted to an instructor at her were school but the attraction turns out to be than that Jobs and will not allow them to leave each other alone When they are thrown together the sparks fly Add in a little mystery and some deception to get a story that is than just a romance.Now this story is advertised as the prequel to The Mating It is, but it is not all about the characters that you meet in The Mating You basically get a little of Kane and his brother That s all So do [...]

  13. This first of a series was released a tad later than the traditional origin story but here, Brandi Johansson s role is not so much wide eyed student as it is woman in lust as she provides a gateway into the inner workings of this world and how certain pieces fit together After lusting for Lycan Link Instructor on loan Reno Smith from the moment she sees him on the Academy campus, Brandi assists him in a demonstration Said demonstration awakens both of their wolves to the possibilities of life to [...]

  14. I liked it, only because I enjoy the way the author writes But really the novel could have been 100 200 pages, it was dragged out I really hate how it happen over 3 years or so, really could have been a year, would have been believable Also this author tends to have too many characters and links this book to the other three, could just be left well enough alone.

  15. This book, in my opinion, was just as great as the other Law of the Lycans series Many people have said in their reviews that the book is repetitive, that paragraphs were repeated only pages apart This is true to a point, the paragraphs were repeated but told in the point of view of a different character So they were not just repetitive paragraphs they held different meanings based on the characters experience.The story is one of love, romance and relationships Trust, anger, longing, belonging, [...]

  16. Bonded by Nicky CharlesPrequel to the Law of the LyconsNicky Charles Law of the Lycon series are excellent books Bonded is the newest book but it s the prequel to The Mating, The Finding, The Keeping At the end of The Keeping we hear a little bit about a werewolf named Damien and in Bonded we hear of his story If you have not read the other books I think you could read Bonded first.In Bonded we meet Reno Smith He is an Enforcer with Lycon Links but is doing mandatory teaching at the Academy, re [...]

  17. Might give away a few details in the story It was a good story over all It s has adult sexual content so I would recommended it for adults only I liked all of the characters and the story was entertaining in the type of jobs and lives they being Lycans led The only things that I could say that I didn t really care for was how the author would recap a lot and some parts felt like they repeated themselves The main characters sometimes acted like pre teens when they are in their early 30 s because [...]

  18. As always Nicky Charles delivers an exciting tale of erotic romance between shape shifters I love the characters and the factors regarding the characters background and the hierarchy of werewolves packs This information adds so much to this book and the other books by Ms Charles The characters Brandi, Reno, Damien, Klaus were truly characters readers can love as family members Their constant love for each other and the community reinforces that as a people we need to get over the racial nonsense [...]

  19. I have loved this series from the first book I read This is the forth book in the series The others are The Finding, The Mating The Keeping not listed in reading order Each has been well written, drawing you into the Lycan world As a plus all these stories are free eBook downloads Nicky encourages you to make a donation to your local animal shelter if you like the books, this is a wonderful idea It would also be great if after you read the book you leave a review at the site you downloaded it fr [...]

  20. Bonded precedes The Mating in the Law of the Lycans timeline You could read this before The Mating if you wanted to without any problems but then I would follow the course of Book 1 The Mating, Book 2 The Keeping, Book 3 The Finding.Reno s an Enforcer for Lycan Link who finds himself thrown into a strange mishap with Brandi Reno really likes Brandi but can not get a grip on his feelings for her His job comes first Brandi is just graduating embarking on a new career as a Disaster Control officer, [...]

  22. So i should of read this before The Mating But ive read The Mating first so was a bit weird when i read about Kane being in the academy I really wanted to read them in order so i went back to this book and i will continue with the next book after The Mating.I felt this book was abit to long for the story the author was trying to tell, i didnt really start getting into it untill about a third through the book, the relationship between Reno and Brandi was tense but as i got further through the boo [...]

  23. Thanks to Laurie Bitten by Romance , I have read the Law of the Lycans and also would highly recommend this very skilled author to everyone who is interested in Sci Fi Paranormal Fiction adult books I have no idea who Ms Charles is But I am a big and sincere admirer of both her as a person, who happens to write very well written, interesting, full length books, and for her making the books available free for a donation to your local charities In my case 35.00 of needed food to help families thro [...]

  24. Okay, let me start by saying this book, in fact the whole series, was free The author only asks that the reader consider making a donation to their local animal shelter or food bank, which is pretty awesome when you think about it Now for the book, I had a little trouble with this one I love werewolf books, and I enjoyed another book in this series a great deal That being said, I was frustrated by this one It had all the elements of a great story, strong characters, conflicts, a dastardly but un [...]

  25. I read Mating, and have backtracked to reading BONDED.This sets up Ms Charles world, although I didn t miss this beggining when I read 2.I enjoyed this one very much Reno is what an Alpha wolf should beeven his clueless moments Brandi is submissived sometimes I wanted her to just TELL HIM ALREADY, lol.But getting THERE is half the fun And it was fun watching the way these two come together.There are some tearful scenes here as well Those scenes set up for book 2.5.I m very impressed with this au [...]

  26. 3.5 stars.This is a prequel book to the Law of the Lycan Series FYI LOVED and bonus They are all FREE If you like werewolf stories with hot alpha males, then this series is for you This particular book for me was entertaining, however not so much as the previous ones I have read This story is about Reno, a potential rogue and enforcer for Lycans, and his battle fighting his own destiny The other lead character Brandi, is a fiesty, self sufficient were who finds herself an accidental mate and in [...]

  27. I can t believe this was a free ebook I got it from Smashwords I m big fan of shifter and werewolf books and it was one of the best ones I ve ever read.I loved the world building , it happens before the first book in the series but was written last The characters were great , there was a mystery and suspense The romance part was great , I really loved how it developed only problem was that it was too detailed.I can t wait to start the next one

  28. Love this series I can t even begin to tell you how excited I was when I found out that there were books in this series than the three I read last year I dove into this one and literally could not put it down I neglected everything else that needed to be done yesterday and stayed up entirely too late to finish this Not only do I get my paranormal fix but the suspense The twists and turns and they omg I have to know what happens These books will grab hold of you and won t let go.

  29. This is by far my favorite series when it comes to Paranormal Romance I was so glad to have found the prequel.You see 3 years ago I found these books while browsing from BN site, The Mating, The Keeping and The Finding Started reading them and BAM I m hooked They re very interesting, I love paranormal stuff with a hint of romance and this is the perfect example of it I can t put it down, I just want to keep going, it s really fun to read If you re like me who loves this kind of stuff, then this [...]

  30. I read all of the books in this series several years ago when they first came out I decided to reread them starting with the prequel because for some reason I barely remembered reading it and didn t remember reading Betrayed at all I love Nicky Charles writing To me it s classic paranormal writing It reminds me of the Twilight series but for adults I agree with any of the four and five star reviews.
