Présentation de l'éditeur

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...

Biographie de l'auteur

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: 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 part 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 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 persons 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. You can connect with Nicky Charles at her website: www.nickycharles.com

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Une bonne surprise 17 mai 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
C'est en surfant sur amazon a la recherche de nouvelles lectures sur les loups garous a me mettre sous la dents, que j'ai découvert les romans de Nicky Charles : Je ne connaissais pas du tout et ai été agréablement surprise. Lorsqu'on sait en plus qu'on peut télécharger ces livres gratuitement sur son kindle, que demander de plus ?
J'ai lu beaucoup de bit-lit, de l'excellent au vraiment mauvais, et même si les ficelles sont un peu grosses, on passe tout de même un très bon moment a suivre les aventures de Kane et Elise ainsi que de leur meute. The Mating possède un petit je ne sais quoi de plus, et reste mon tome préféré de la saga, dont j'ai lu les cinq tomes (j'ai lu sur le site de l'auteure qu'elle allait continuer la saga, j'attends avec impatience de voir a quel personnage elle va ensuite s'attaquer). Merci a Nicky Charles de mettre a notre disposition ces romans, dommage qu'ils ne soient qu'en anglais, ils gagneraient a être découvert par un plus grand nombre de fan.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mates in the Muddle 17 mars 2013
Par Scott R. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I love werewolves. Totally and completely. So I'm always on the lookout for new books that look that they will be decent. And then, a few days ago, I discover 5 NEW WEREWOLF books (!!!) and all by the same author. I started reading this book, got about 50 pages in, and bought the other 4, no questions asked.

This book was excellent. I loved Elise. She's tough. She will stand up to the Alpha. But will he ever love her?! I loved Kane. He's had a rough life. He's just trying to do the right thing by his Pack. Oh, and what exactly do you do with a mate anyway (besides mate, that is)? All these questions will be answered. And the villain? Let's just say that you will know EXACTLY who the villain is from the first paragraph this person enters the story. And hell if this person isn't over-the-top evil. A great story has a great villain and this one delivers. Oh, how I wished many times that a house would fall out of the sky and land on this person's head, but I just had to wait until almost the very end to see if such a meteor would fall.

I raced through this book, and I have a feeling that I'll race through the other 4. Therefore, I have emailed Ms. Charles and asked her to write faster.:)

I only had one criticism - Elise gets set up for something, and Kane does something pretty damned awful to her. I think the later circumstances they found themselves in saved him from a lot of groveling. A TON of groveling. And that should have been portrayed. Hint: Greta Rideout.

Incidentally, I have no clue what all these complaints are about this book not being free. I have paid $6.99 for 150 pages of crap. I think paying $.99 for a 300 page book is well worth it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Series Now Listed for Sale by Author 28 février 2012
Par calid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As of March 2013 Nicky herself has had to sell her wonderful books on Amazon to keep them from being pirated. The books up for sale now are NOT pirated, they are hers and hers alone so feel free to either purchase them for .99 here or go to Smashwords.com and get them for free. All of her books are well worth .99, she could charge full price for them they are so good, but prefers to ask her readers to donate to local animal shelters or food pantries.

There are so far 5 books in the series, get them all, you won't be sorry.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hate vindictive females 13 avril 2013
Par Whitney(Shooting Stars Reviews) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had read some really good reviews about this book, and it was FREE so I decided to try it out. Considering it was free that made me view it a little more highly than if I had paid for it. The story is about Elise being forced to mate with the Alpha of another pack to keep the pack's alliance. She doesn't know this Alpha at all, and he doesn't know anything about her, but they are quickly thrown together to mate. And then as soon as they mate she's forced to leave her home and friends behind to move to his territory.
I enjoyed the story to this book, it was very interesting. And I liked Elise's character, she was very brave even though her whole life was changing she was still trying to make due with what she had. And she wanted to do her duty for her pack by mating with the Alpha she didn't know.
Throughout the book I didn't really get a grasp on Kane's personality or emotions. He seemed almost like a void to me even though he was a round a lot. And I truly hated the fact that "Marla" had Kane wrapped around her finger. It made me think way less of Kane, and it also made me dislike the book. I can not stand books where the women has the man believing something that's not true it really bugs me when these kinds of character's are thrown into a story because I absolutely hate them!! So that is why I'm saying this book is only okay. It wasn't that long either, so if your looking for a werewolf story to pass the time but not leave a huge impression I recommend this book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Rape, Idiocy, Anti-Feminism, Insta-Love & 3rd Person = An Appalling Read. 25 mars 2013
Par Reading Junkie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I debated writing this review since I had already wasted enough time reading the book. I like paranormal romance when it's done right. The Mating was a case of a paranormal romance done wrong. Very wrong. This book was a freebie for me and I had feeble hopes of mediocrity, but this book was downright terrible. I would strongly advise you not to read this book UNLESS you like the following:

1. An idiotic heroine. Elise, oh Elise. The heroine is an 18 year old who has a noodle for a backbone. She barely resists: an arranged marriage; forced taking of her virginity; manipulation by Marla at every corner; rape; and having her whole life dictated to her like she's a subhuman being with no rights. Worse yet, she doesn't even complain after the events happen. Elise was a perfect combination of stupidity, passivity, and weakness. Also, she may have been part zombie and deaf-mute as she barely talked or emoted. I'm pretty sure the amount of her actual dialogue only added up to 2 pages.

2. Dubious Consent, Non-Consent, & Rape Scenes. There's this trend nowadays in erotica to incorporate uber dominant males and aggressive sex scenes. Nothing wrong with that. However, when aggressive sex trespasses into "non-consent" territory? That's where I have a problem. That's rape, ladies and gentlemen. The sexual encounter in the beginning of the book is in the dubious consent pile and even though Elise didn't want to go along with it, she did. But the sexual encounter towards the end of the book where she blatantly says she doesn't want it? Rape. And Elise (via the author's poor writing) never even addressed that she had been violated. 0_o Great message to send out to women (and men): rape is a-okay IF: the rapist is extremely attractive, the sex is orgasmic, and you were too lazy to at least pretend to fight him off. So "no" in fact means "yes" essentially. This is irresponsible writing, and I'm disgusted that it's becoming more commonplace in romance and erotica novels.

3. Insta-love. I detest it. Elise supposedly is in love with her childhood friend Bryan but does nothing to fight her arranged marriage. Within 2 days, she's already in love with Kane and Bryan is a distant memory. What was the point of bringing Bryan into the story if there was no angsty love triangle? I attribute this to weak character development and amateur writing skills.

4. Anti-feminism. Outside of about 3 female pack members, most don't have a college education or a job. They are used as breeders, shoppers, housewives, maids, etc and tend to do copious amounts of laundry, cooking and showering. Enhancing your intellect or at least having a hobby? Meh, not necessary. Needless to say, my delicate feminist sensibilities were offended.

5. Third person. The entire book? Narrated by dumbo Elise? I hated it. I hated that Elise supposedly had all these detailed and bold thoughts in her head but came across as a 2-d robot when it was time to act. Boo Nicky. Boo.

Gems of Elise's stupidity and ignorance:
"Is being pregnant really difficult?" ARE YOU 12??? She's already had sex with Kane numerous times and is just now asking about the consequences of the birds and the bees? Come on, grow up.

"We talked about it. My heat will start next week and I think I'll go drug free and see what happens, especially since I don't react well to the drugs." Wait... 2 pages before she wanted to hold off on having kids but now wants to go off birth control? And then just "see what happens"? What do you think is going to happen idiot?

I'm going to advise Nicky Charles to take quite a few writing classes. Everyone is not meant to be an author (well, a for-profit author). Also, keep this book priced at FREE DOLLARS in order to gain more feedback and non-hostile reviews. If I had paid for this book - this review would have a lot more expletives. In fact, because I read it within the 7 day frame, I'd be returning it to Amazon. Luckily it was free. Unluckily, the preposterousness of this book will not be forgotten.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Yet another romance book thinking rape is ok... 5 juin 2013
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The beginning of this book was so disgusting, I couldn't make it past the first five chapters.

It begins with 18 yr old Elise who was given 3 hours notice by her father and the elders of her werewolf pack before she was to be mated to a complete stranger, despite being in love with her best friend.

3 hours later, there is a ceremony and her new mate takes her to a cabin where he takes her virginity. She says no at one point, but he rapes her anyways. To make matters worse, he wakes her twice more in the night to use her. Apparently its "ok" though because her body likes it even if her mind and heart do not.

Horribly written, stilted dialogue follows where he speaks condescendingly to her (much like rapists and psychos do in other novels) and she comes across as little more than a naive child. He speaks crassly to her but "she sees gentleness in his eyes". In her head she makes all sorts of excuses for his behavior while referring to her own unhappy reactions as "being in a snit".

They leave for his home where he praises her for not "whining, throwing temper tantrums our angry accusations" as he had expected.

I don't care where you go from here in a book, whether he becomes a total catch at the end of the book and she grows a spine, but I just couldn't get past the first five chapters. Besides that, it was also horribly written...I'm not sure when I last read a book so badly done. The dialogue was atrocious.

I read the prequel to this book, which I have to believe the author wrote long after this book, because it was a good, solid read. Unfortunately, I won't be reading the rest of this series.
