This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
Getting arrested wasn’t on werewolf Ivy Kincaid’s agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she’s come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. Not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé.
Sheriff (and werewolf) Hank Merrow is the alpha's heir. Everything he's ever done, from becoming an Army Ranger to serving in law enforcement, has been in preparation for the day he’ll take over. Getting married to cement a shaky truce is no different. Hank will do his duty, even if it means shackling himself to a woman he has no intention of liking, let alone loving.
But Ivy is nothing like Hank expected. As feisty as she is beautiful, she's as determined as he is to make a go of marriage for the sake of peace between their packs. The trouble is, Ivy has secrets that could destroy everything Hank holds dear...including his newfound love for her.
Fun supernatural romance
I loved this book, and I love this series! I'm anxiously awaiting book 3 (and hopefully 4,5,6...)
If I could move to Nocturn Falls, I'd pack my bags tomorrow!
I'm moving to Nocturne Falls!
I received an ARC from the Author/Publisher in exchange for an honest review of this book.
In book 2 in the Nocturne Falls series, Kristen has again surpassed my expectations. While much lighter in spirit than her House of Comarré series, she navigates the world of the supernatural with well supernatural skills. With the ease she brings you into the world of the supernatural, I think she just might be one masquerading as a human.
Book 2 focuses on hunky Hank Merrow the Sheriff of Nocturne Falls. When his father comes to him and proposes an arranged marriage with a rival pack to broker peace and pay an old debt, Hank agrees knowing that this was always a possibility with him being the Alpha's Heir. What he doesn't expect is how much he actually likes Ivy. She's definitely not what he was anticipating.
Ivy brings her own issues to the equation, but she's also super attracted to hunky Hank. She fears her secrets will end whatever chance at happiness she has. Will her past or pack ruin everything before she has a chance?
Romance: Moderate (all behind closed doors).
I have to give this book 5 stars. Kristen ensures that all mature content occurs behind closed doors so something any teen could read with confidence. There is some mild violence, but nothing gory. Another great read from Kristen.
The Werewolf Meets His Match
Werewolf Met His Match by Kristen Painter
How much fun is a campy town that celebrates Halloween year round? Lots! This town is filled with vampires, witches, fae, and werewolves. And they don't have to hide when it's Halloween.
This is the second Nocturne Falls book and it's the Sheriff's (who is a werewolf) turn to find love.
Ivy Kinkaid, defending an abused woman, gets into a fight and arrested on her first night in Nocturne Falls. So of course, the first time she meets her intended husband, it's from behind bars in the towns jail. What a great first impression.
Hank Merrow is intrigued by this gorgeous woman shifter. And attracted. As he accepts pack law and accepts Ivy into his home, he finds her too hard to resist and soon the two are running through the forest. (Not a euphemism. They turn into wolves and run in the woods!)
I enjoyed this book so much. Fun, campy, and a great romance. Touching too when he accepts....no spoilers, so never mind.
I will definitely be back for more of the series.
I received a copy of this book from the author.
