Publisher's Summary

Pilot. Guard. Prisoner. All three are crashed in the Georgia woods, lost on a world where extraterrestrials are the stuff of science fiction. Blending into the human world is doable, if dangerous. But what if the locals are far from human themselves, with secrets of their own?

Former bounty hunter Stella Grey grew up an orphan on family-centric Alpha-Prime, so she knows the value of belonging. Leaving everything - and everyone - behind to join distant kin a galaxy away in Alienn, Arkansas, is a small price to pay. Heading up a retrieval operation following a spacecraft crash in rural Georgia is her chance to prove herself to them. Her mission? Locate the ship's occupants. Secure the prisoner. And, above all, keep the earthlings from discovering that aliens live and walk among them.

Draeken Phoenix is the bad boy from one of Alpha-Prime's best families, known for getting in and out of scrapes with wit, charm, and sheer bravado. He never expected to become an actual prisoner bound for a galactic gulag. Until now, the worst thing that had ever happened to him was losing the woman he loved. But he has a plan. He'd bet his life on it.

Book Review

Don't you worry Nocturn Falls won't be able sustain its population growth? Or the idea that the town would have to expand?

Space Potatoes

Book was irritating as the characters would express their displeasure by saying “Space Potatoes” and it would occur ALL the time. Each time made my eyes roll, it was just so bad. Also ending was very blah, all this build up and it was resolved in about 30 seconds.

Space Potatoes!

Cute, simple story. PG romance. Love the name of the alien's weapon, "The Big D". Narrator's voice was pleasant. Predictable storyline, but a nice easy listen.

Aliens in Arkansas

well it took me a bit to get into. It was fast fun easy to listen. was worth the money. Kept going bact to the Nocturne falls books. I wanted more of the charactor build up to reach into the other charactors. I will get more as they come out. I just wanted more.

I'm really enjoying Kristen Painter's guest authors

I'm really enjoying Kristen Painter's guest authors for the Nocturne Falls series. This is the second book I've heard. Fiona Roarke wrote a great story with well-crafted and believable characters. B.J. Harrison, as usual, have a great performance bringing the characters to life with distinct voice. I highly recommend this book.
