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...
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I usually go for the dark and gritty paranormal romance novels and while the cover is cute, it isn’t something that would normally attract my attention but what is inside, is so dang good.
Kristen does an amazing job weaving together a truly unique story with just the right amount of swoon worthy romance and cheeky humor.
There was no major emotional rollercoaster here but it was a truly pleasant read with those sweet moments where you find yourself smiling with each turning page. I look forward to reading more from this series.
