Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 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.
Sebastian Ellingham isn't known for being a happy vampire. And when his long estranged wife returns expecting to pick up where they left off, things take a sharp turn toward cranky. Sure he's been protecting her for centuries, but her assumption that he's still available (he is) rankles.
His answer is to hire a woman to play his fiancée. The lucky victim is Tessa Blythe, sister of one of the town's deputies, librarian in need of a job and, oh yes, reluctant Valkyrie. Playing along with Sebastian is all about the end game: earning the position of Dean of Library Studies at the local private academy.
When unexpected sparks fly between them, they agree to mutually deny the attraction. Fate, however, has other plans....

As always Kristen delivers another story and it didn't disappoint, easy listening and no heavy drama just fun all around, the only complaint i have is there should be sex scenes thrown in we are all adult and it would just be an icing to the cake than and it make this good story to fantastic :P tnx xox
"Perfect Match ~ Sebastian and Tessa!"
I adore and love the Nocturne Falls series! Each book is a clean, romantic, suspenseful, funny, and book five, The Vampire's Fake Fiancée, is a great example of another well written story by Kristen Painter.
Nocturne Falls is about the super naturals that live in the town that celebrates Halloween 365; it's original, with lots of creativity. While the stories are about the Hero and Heroin falling in love, each story will include some of the other well know characters, and take us to some of the local shops that have the coolest names, like the pub called DOI (Drinks On Arrival), or Howlers, Mummy's the diner, Ever After the local bridal shop, and many more. Each story is unique while building up the town and the characters.
As usual B.J. Harrison narrations is awesome! He does a great job giving each character their own voice, conveying the different emotions throughout the story, and is consistent from one book to the next.
I highly recommend the Nocturne Falls series for any PNR fan who loves their stories clean and fun!
The narrator brings each character to life.
The way Tessa was able to help Sebastian to learn to live again and how he helped her to be able to accept who she was. Both had problems but they saved each other.
you get to hear and feel the emotions of each character. You can't bet this from reading.
I listen to these at work and i cannot get enough. It seems like it is time to go home and i hate having to stop listening. I just love love this series
This is one of the best series/ i am so glad my friend and i found these books. Can't wait till the next.
"LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!"
absolutely love this series of books! The characters are funny and interesting, there's always neat little twist and turns to the plot, and the narration is amazing!
everytime I think I found my favorite book in the series here comes the next one and it's better than the last!
I love this series. Kirsten Painter draws you in and make you want more and more.
B.J.Harrison reads Kristen Painter's work fabulously.
"Pride and Prejudice and Vampires in a good way"
That both Sebastian and Tessa discovered that they could change for the right person
Sebastian because he is so complicated
When Tessa drew her sword.
Loved it and you will too
"another exciting read by Painter!"
most memorable moment was when she reveals her sword! I love the flow of the story and that the good guy gets his girl!
"love this series"
Worth your money or Credit👍
It's fun, sweet and a always makes me smile at the end 😊
"Sebastian's big surprise!"
Tessa's mild manner and Sebastian's stand offish ways - seemed to draw them together making them their true selves.
When Tessa came to terms with her true self, and used her sword to help Sebastian.
Yes, but only in this series. He is great!!
Yes - I have loved all the books in this series.
Cute, fun, simplistic. Enjoyable. I'm continuing on with the series. Real easy to guess the whole story from the first chapter.
"My favorite of the series"
This series is awesome. Light, fun with just enough drama to keep it interesting. Tessa and Sebastian are my favorite for sure! All the books and couples have been good but this has been the most interesting. I love that each is a little "broken" yet find strength through each other.
Julian's character seems to be building up to something. Another book maybe??
I love this book it is one of the best in the series I was looking forward to reading about Hugh brother all we need is a book about Julian best book I've read in a long time
Loved this book, it was so funny and so good. I really liked Sebastian, he's a great character and we finally got to meet the infamous Evangeline! Really did not like her! Loved Tessa though and her adorable little kitten Duncan. Can't wait for more in this series!
I'm sorry to say that after listening to all five books in the Nocturne Falls Series by Kristen Painter I must admit that these five, cute, and well written stories are going to be returned.
If I was looking for a gentle PG rated introduction to romantic fiction for a young teenager then this series is perfect.
There is no doubt in my opinion that this author is talented and Kristen Painter paired with the wonderful vocal performances of B.J. Harrison has been lovely.😐
