Read: August 12th to 17th, 2016
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, fur, 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. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn’t know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.
Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In thirty days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman’s going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.
Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...
In a matter of seconds, this book consumed me and wrapped me snugly between it's pages! The Vampire's Mail Order Bride was a light, fast-paced read with a dash of paranormal- exactly what the doctor ordered! I just got swept away in the story, devouring it and I didn't want it to end!
This was also an absolute emotional roller coaster ride, especially when Hugh was fighting his feelings for her. Every time he took three steps back after taking a step forward, I was like "Why, Hugh, why?! Don't do this!" Even though the romance was fast, I actually didn't mind it like I usually do. I think it's cause I was craving for it, craving to read cause it's been a while since a book took me hostage, that it actually made me fall head over heels for these two! This book was absolutely swoon worth and I wish it didn't have to end!
Overall I was reading this faster than any book I've read lately, all I wanted to do was spend my day within the pages! I was literally reading 100+ pages a day and that's very rare for me! That's how consumed I was with this story! I just couldn't get enough and when I had to put it down, I couldn't stop thinking about the next time I was going to pick it back up! I will be buying more from Kristen Painter, already have the second book in the Nocturne Falls series in my cart, I'm just waiting for my first paycheck to come in!
Sweet Reading Everybody!
