Welcome to Nicola Cameron Writes! I’m your hostess Nic — make yourself at home and enjoy a wide variety of romance stories (primarily SF, fantasy, and paranormal, but I do write the occasional contemporary and historical) with chewy plot-filled centers, and all the bon mots you can handle. Oh, and if you see one or, er, five cats, just ignore them — they like to think they run the place.
In addition to my Blog, I also host a Bookshelf of my published work, a short About page (all true, I swear), a Free Reads page with some of my flash and short fiction for your reading enjoyment, a WIP page where I keep y’all updated on my current projects, a Newsletter page where you can sign up for Nicola’s Newsy News (low traffic, I promise!), and just for giggles a Merchandise page because everyone deserves an “Olympic Cove – Get Wet!” t-shirt.
Thanks for stopping by!

Lady of Thorns now available for pre-order
Suffering from Game of Thrones withdrawal? Wondering what the heck is going on in Ypres and Hellas? Or are you just in the mood for a new fantasy romance? Fret not, because the third book in my Two Thrones series will be out on Halloween! Lady of Thorns is now available for pre-order at Amazon and Kobo, with other online retailers coming soon.
Love was never supposed to be part of the deal…
Lady Amelie de Clerq’s prickly demeanor and earth mage abilities have earned her the nickname “Lady of Thorns,” keeping potential suitors at bay and making her the butt of the nobility’s jokes. Determined to attract a husband who will love her for herself rather than her fortune, she decides to embark on a journey of sensual self-discovery.
Alain LaPorte, wily lawyer and toast of the capital’s social set, has been summoned to Lierdhe to oversee business negotiations with a neighboring earl. When Amelie asks Alain to tutor her in the bedroom arts, he agrees to introduce the virgin mage to pleasure. But lessons in lovemaking soon turn into a matter of the heart, forcing both Amelie and Alain to confront their fears about intimacy, loyalty, and love.
Shifter Woods: Roar now available
The second entry in my Esposito Country Shifters paranormal romance series is now available from all online romance retailers. If you enjoyed Shifter Woods: Howl and want to find out what happened to Laurie’s cameraman Gavin, here’s your chance!
When armed lowlifes and a snowstorm in the Sandia Mountains strand photojournalist Gavin Leeds in Mike Ivanov’s cabin, the newshound gets the shock of his life. Not only is his sexy rescuer an Alpha bear shifter, but Mike also believes that Gavin is his destined heart’s mate. Some hot and dirty sex with a hunky shifter is one thing, but Gavin doesn’t believe in fated mates or happily ever afters.
Mike Ivanov has enough problems with his pack as it is; they’re not thrilled that he won’t be siring the next Alpha, and now he has to answer a challenge from one of his pack members. Having his heart’s mate show up on the same night doesn’t help. Finding out that his mate is a snarky, rebellious human with a commitment problem and an ass he wants to bite?
Nobody ever said an Alpha’s life was going to be easy.
Shifter Woods: Howl now available
Some deets: Shifter Woods: Howl is the first in a four-part series set in fictional Esposito County, New Mexico which is home to four shifter clans. The next novella, Shifter Woods: Roar, will be out in a month. Once all four novellas are out, I’ll combine them into a box set and a print version.
Laurie wants a news story. Caleb just wants to be left alone. But when the coyote shifters’ paths cross in New Mexico’s Sandia Mountains, Fate steps in and gives them something they never expected—each other.
Reporter Laurie Rivera is on the trail of a white slavery ring when she’s forced to run for her life in the foothills near Sandia Crest. Widowed sheriff and Alpha coyote shifter Caleb Lynch comes across the exhausted reporter and discovers to his shock that Laurie’s also a coyote shifter—and his new heart’s mate.
But Caleb never expected to have another chance at love, and Laurie has a good reason to fear being claimed, especially by an Alpha. As a snowstorm traps them in the sheriff’s cabin, Caleb must find a way around the barriers surrounding Laurie’s heart, and Laurie has to confront her past—and the humans who want her dead—if she wants a chance at her very own “happily ever after.”
Degree of Resistance now available
Do you wanna buy a romance? It’s got cyborgs and sci-fi!
The heroine is good at making things (and maybe taking things) — wanna see why?
It’s the tale of Ben and Evie, they’re really cool — she’s smart and he’s this bi–onic guy.
Do you wanna buy a romance? It’s got sex and guns and romance! Go on, try!
Ahem. My new SF cyborg romance Degree of Resistance (Pacifica Rising 1) is now available from Amazon for $3.99. Go check it out and see why people other than me are singing its praises.
A perfect society hiding a terrible secret. An innocent man condemned to cyborg slavery. A brilliant woman determined to set him free.
Freelance tech Evie Contreras belongs to the Employee class of the Pacifica Protectorate, the “perfect society” that rose from the ruins of the West Coast. But Evie knows about Pacifica’s festering core and the secrets that keep it in power. And when she discovers that Pacifica has turned her fiancé Ben into a cyborg slave, she will risk everything to rescue him.
Saving Ben is the first step in a deadly game between Pacifica and a shadowy resistance group known as Rubicon. In return for Rubicon’s help, Evie must retrieve a hidden artificial intelligence that may hold the key to protecting Earth from a deadly new disaster.
Assuming the protectorate doesn’t find Evie first…
