Series: Nocturne Falls #1
on June 1st 2015
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs and all.
After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. What she doesn't know is her groom to be is a 400-year-old vampire.
Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. His past means love is no longer an option. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...
I loved it! If this town were real…sign me up, I am moving.
I completely fell in love with the Vampire’s Mail Order Bride. The characters are fabulously written with courage and history. Nocturne Falls is a phenomenal setting. This is the first book I have read by Kristen Painter but I will definitely be checking out her other books.
The unexpected couple
Delaney has such courage and strength. She knows what she wants, but she isn’t going to give up her integrity to get it. That doesn’t mean that she doesn’t know what self-preservation is though. Delaney is smart and is a crazy baker. I really like her little quirks and don’t forget her cat.
Hugh isn’t your typical vampire, and yet he does have that tortured soul thing going for him. He has lots of people around but he is lonely and doesn’t really know it. His late wife’s death was tragic and his pining for her was darling. Hugh is extremely smart and brave. And yet he has that sadness of one who has lost his way in the world. I truly like Hugh and the way that he accepts Delaney through everything.
I think the two of them make an outstanding couple.
Gangsters beware, vampires are much more cunning and vicious that you are.
The town of Nocturne Falls is clever and fun. I love that the citizens are themselves and that the humans all think of it as a Disneyland celebrating Halloween year round. The town accepts that and the Ellinghams who created the town have great marketing and strategy to keep the tourist coming. I think Ms. Painter has a wonderful imagination. I know I am looking forward to reading the second book in the series The Werewolf Meets His Match.
And the results are
My rating forVampire’s Mail Order Bride is 5 stars. I completely enjoyed this book and recommend this to all of my friends.
