The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride -Nocturne Falls #1 by Kristen Painter

Delaney James needs to hide.  After witnessing her boss shoot a man she finds herself running into the nearest open shop door that turns out to be a mail-order match-making service. Stealing the identity of one of the matches, Delaney makes her way to Nocturne Falls.

Nocturne Falls is not your ordinary sleepy town, in fact at night is when most of the residents come to life (so to speak).  Hugh Ellingham is a 400 year old vampire who lives in Nocturne Falls with his brothers, his grandmother, and a whole host of werewolves, vampires, gargoyles, shifters and witches.  The residents have turned it into a thriving tourist attraction where Halloween is celebrated every day.

Hugh’s grandmother is tired of seeing her grandson lonely and desperately wants grandchildren.  Arranging for a match to spend a month with Hugh was not easy but when Delaney arrives no one, especially Delaney,  is prepared for what is to follow.



What a great place Nocturne Falls is.  A haven for the supernatural where they can openly be themselves without humans realising that they are being themselves.

Delaney is a fun and interesting character who is more afraid of her mobster boss than she is of a family of vampires. The love interest between Delaney and Hugh happens very quickly, maybe a little too quick but I guess when you are dealing with supernatural then love at first sight really can happen.  Hugh is the typical vampire, quiet, reserved and handsome beyond belief, and fortunately he does not glow!

I enjoyed this book. It was easy to read, had a little mystery, a little passion, a vindictive ex-girlfriend, and a host of characters who all have their own stories waiting to be read.  I will definitely be reading more of Nocturne Falls in the future.

I love to Read! Mostly romance (of all types) but I also enjoy murder mysteries, paranormal fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, pretty much anything.
