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 comes to town expecting to pick up where they left off, things take a sharp turn toward cranky. Sure he’s been pining after 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 for her, 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…

Characters true to Nocturne falls
One of Nocturne Falls best. Developing Sebastian character was believable. His match was developed just right.
Clean read, Yay!!!
I love finding authors who have the courage and talent to write a clean book! Looks like I will be starting to collect a new series. Thank you Kristen Painter!
The book we have been waiting for
Love this series. This book is just as good as the first one. The ex wife is predictable and yet unpredictable. I want to see another book written for this series. It's too good to stop at 5 books!
