I have been reading "The Mating" and "The Keeping" by Nicky Charles

I got a Nook for my birthday and happened to pick "The Mating" to read since it was free. I had little hope of enjoying it really when I started because I am not one to like Vampire or Werewolf stories. I am so glad I picked this book because I couldn't put it down. This is more of a mystery/love story (adults only) and it just happens to be Werewolves. It isn't the traditional type of Werewolf that goes around biting every one's neck or tearing them apart all night long. This was totally entertaining and I had a hard time putting it down.

"The Keeping" really held my interest, I didn't want to put it down either. Again, this is not your traditional Werewolf story, this is more of a mystery with all its twists and turns and love story. It is just happens that most of the characters are Werewolves which leads into its own twist and sense of urgency and mystery. I just wish the writer didn't say that every female in the story was biting her lip. I figured by now the whole pack don't have lips...they chewed them off. All females (even when we don't know what to say) do not bite our lip. I found that redundant to the point of being annoying. Yeah, I know...I am nitpicking. Other than that I found the story very interesting....I mean to the point of being addicting. (I even burned dinner because I picked up the book to read "just a few minutes"  well, an hour and half later my eggplant parmigiana looked more like burned bricks.

Today I started the third in the series, "The Finding".
UPDATE: I finished the book and it was another good one. Some things, "I saw it coming" but others took me by total surprise. I do hope Nicky writes another book. She left that possibility open so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
