The Vampire's Mail Order Bride
Book 1, Nocturne Falls - Nocturne Falls, Book 1
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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...
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.
A fun new series!
This is a fantastic start to what promises to be a fun new series. I can't wait to read more about what's going on in Nocturne Falls and keep up with all the supernaturals. I wish this were a real town... I'd be packing for a vacation now!
Totally fun read
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Meet Delaney a waitress who works at a place linked to the mob through rumor only, or so she thinks.
When she needs a place to hide Nocturne Falls presents itself as a place to disappear in. A place where everyday is Halloween, and not everything is as it appears.
Enter Hugh an almost 400 year old vampire with commitment issues and an overbearing grandmother.
I loved the story and that trust/relationship was not instant. Attraction was, and the love story was natural and not rushed.
The characters had depth and you want to hear more when the story is done.
Romance: mild and mostly behind closed doors
Violence: moderate. Some scenes but not overly descriptive.
Overall rating 4.5 which I rounded up to a 5.
The reason I didn't give 5 stars is I wanted more resolution to Delaney's troubles in the book
Such a good book, read it in one night! Only thing that bothered me is that (SPOILER) Delaney never tells Hugh that her cats real name is Captain Underpants. Such a little flaw but with Delaney stressing honesty and no secrets at every turn, (pun intended), it just seems like something she should've told him.
