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.
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....

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!

Another Winner

What made the experience of listening to The Vampire's Fake Fiancée the most enjoyable?

The narrator brings each character to life.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

you get to hear and feel the emotions of each character. You can't bet this from reading.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best series/ i am so glad my friend and i found these books. Can't wait till the next.

A slight but sweet romance

If you're a fan of the series you will probably like this. For me the story was a bit too slight and obvious with few true obstacles. It reads more like a very slight M&B with supernatural elements. It's fine, but not quite enough there with which to really engage.

Any additional comments?

its a good series but once you have read one you know pretty much what will happen in the rest. Still got them all though as they are nice listening and entertaining.

Rating the series as a whole

I've been listening to this series for a week or two now and am quite captivated by it as a whole. The stories are interesting and diverse, and for once we have couples that don't doubt each other at the first sign of an interfering troublemaker. It makes the story a lot shorter, but such a relief from the norm!! What I really enjoy is that all these stories force the characters to be open and honest with eachother in a very short period - 2 to 3 days for the longer novels and within a few hours for the shorter ones.

I love Kristen's willingness to branch out on how the supernaturals should behave. E.g. vampires can and do eat regular meals like humans, and newly turned vamps aren't all that worried about being tempted to kill their human friends.

BJ Harrison is a bloke and this is the first time I've listened to a man narrating a romance series: I love his work. Very nicely done. He has a tiny little bit of trouble giving sisters different voices but then I'm equally appreciative of the fact that he doesn't give them different accents like some narrators do in an attempt to differentiate the characters. The men in this series all have different voices and and it's truly wonderful to listen to the variety, but even better for these characteristics to remain constant throughout the entire series.

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
