Publisher's Summary

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.
Willa Iscove, fae jeweler, has her first stalker. Really, he's just one of her lovesick customers. The ring she crafted to help him find new love has backfired, making Willa the object of his affections. In a bid to rid herself of her amorous client, Willa makes a wish in the Nocturne Falls fountain using the piece of opal in her pocket and in doing so, unknowingly conscripts as her guardian the sexy gargoyle on duty.
Former Army Ranger and gargoyle Nick Hardwin has some serious suspicions about the pretty fae who just invoked the ancient pact for protection. Her kind have been at odds with his kind for ages. Now she wants his help? He's determined to figure out what she's up to. Which won't be a hardship considering how much fun she is to be around. And kiss.
But then her stalker turns out to be the tip of the iceberg and things go really wrong, really fast. When they're both kidnapped, Willa is forced to make a hard decision. The life of her family or the freedom of the man she's fallen for?

This is a Must Read Series!

Nocturne Falls is one of the most magical, and enchanting romances I've listen to in a long time. The stories are light, funny, and have some sexy, and interesting paranormal creatures. In The Gargoyle Gets His Girl, you can feel the attraction between Nick and Willa, which will have you smiling and blushing even with sex being "closed door."

These stories are well rounded, with a captivating plot, and great character development but it's Kristen's creativity that makes this series awesome, especially the town, Nocturne Falls, and it's "residences." With each new story, Nocturne Falls becomes more interesting, and you learn something new like the "Red, White, and Boo" Fourth of July celebration, and each "supernatural" has their own special abilities and weakness. In this story, we learn more about Willa's jewelry making abilities, and how she uses her Fae magic to work with the metals. These are the types of stories you can listen over and over, and hear something new each time.

Kristen also adds lots of little details that give each story a realistic feel. Some of the little details she provides in this story, are when she is describing Nick preparing for the picnic with Willa, and how he ensures he has all the items someone would actually think of to bring to a picnic, or when he buys a beer as a "thank you" for a fellow military veteran for watching his stuff. You can tell by all the details used to describe the cat's behavior, and how Willa and Nick take care of the cat, Kristen is a cat lover.

B.J. Harrison performance was awesome. The voices for many of the characters have been consistent throughout the series, and are easily identified. His performance really brings the stories to life, and makes it more enjoyable.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves an enchanting romance that is both light and funny. You cannot go wrong with this series!

Best in Nocturn Falls Series

I'm a huge Molly Harper fan and started reading Painter's NF series as a way to get my super natural romance fix while waiting for another Harper book to come out. I'm not a fan of sex scenes, but love the snarky humor of Harper and her story lines. I haven't found anyone who quite has her humor, but Painter's plots are entertaining and imaginative. I love the idea of all of her characters living in the same town and somehow being connected. These are good quirky love stories. If you want a light read and like books by Molly Harper, I think you'd enjoy this series.
