This is one of my favorite promotional tours because I've known this author for such a long time and also known her better than any other author I've read.
She is just fantastic and I hope you do get to read her books and get to meet her too!
You can see my SPOTLIGHT Tour on her and also get more information from her websites.
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 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.
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.

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...
The Mating is reminiscent of the Middle Ages, were frequently arranged so that both families involved would benefit from the alliance, whether for political purposes or to gain wealth, property or prestige. Elise, our 19 year old virgin heroine has been raised knowing what was expected of her as the daughter of the Alpha. Kane, our hero is the kind, practical, hot sexy new Alpha of a neighboring pack. What our hero and heroine don't know is that someone is out to undermine, sabotage and destroy their future and their pack.
Nicky Charles has done a superb job of combining our old world style history with a paranormal twist in a modern setting creating her own new Lycan world. The end result leaves you asking for more!
Great read. I loved the plot it was fantastic I'd happily recommend this book to those who love a great suspense story. "The Law of the Lycans "series is worth the read.So grab a bottle of wine, some cheese and grapes,climb into that bubble bath and relax and enjoy this Great read.
This review is from: The Mating (Law of the Lycans) (Kindle Edition)
Nicky writes in a way that really pulls you into the story. You feel like you're actually there, seeing everything take place. The books are long enough that the plot and characters are very well developed. But all too quickly you get to the end and are reaching for the next book in the series.

Rafe's kisses affected her like no one else's ever had, and with each encounter she found herself craving him even more. Taking her up on her unspoken offer, he gently bit on the exposed cord, then lathed the area with his tongue. Eve whimpered as the flutters inside her became a warm pool of need. She tried to turn to face him, but he tightened his arm around her waist. "Stay still." There was a rough edge to his voice, almost a growl and the sound of it sent shivers down her spine..."

The sixth instalment in the Law of the Lycans
The she-wolf across the alley from him had her butt propped against the edge of a dumpster, her hands braced on her knees as she stood, half hunched, trying to catch her breath. The fight they’d just completed had been exhilarating as she’d matched him move for move. He’d barely needed to hold back; her speed and agility making up for what she lacked in size and muscle. Already, faint aches and pains were letting themselves be known, and no doubt in brighter surroundings he’d find a fine array of bruises decorating his body.
Grabbing the edge of his shirt, he gave his face a quick wipe, careful to keep one eye on his opponent. When Kane had described the petite female who acted as Samuel Harper’s spokesperson, he’d made her sound ineffectual. Damien had pictured her as demure, perhaps carrying a clipboard and peering over her glasses. While it was true she might not look like much of a threat, the last few minutes had shown it wasn’t wise to underestimate her. He wondered if Kane had set him up; purposely leaving out the information that the woman packed a lethal punch. Thanks, buddy.
Pushing off from the wall, he swallowed, wincing slightly at the pull of his dry throat and wishing he had a stiff drink. But there’d be time enough for that later. Instead, he focused on her.
There was a pause in her breathing and then he saw her nod.
“Yeah. I think we’re done.”
Had he really heard a hint of laughter in her voice? Damien eyed her speculatively as she straightened from her braced position. At some point their battle had moved from the street to the alley where they now stood. The faint light from a single bulb over the backdoor of a restaurant was the only illumination. It wasn’t much, but he was still able to make out her features. Short, dark hair, a petite yet muscular build. An alley fighter—a damned good alley fighter—and a female. Who’d have thought?
Stephanie thought she was ordinary. Her life was stable, or at least it was until the stranger appeared. Was he the answer to her dreams or a nightmare?
