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 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. What she doesn't know is her groom to be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. His past means love is no longer an option. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.

Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...

Karen’s Review

I am going to be blatantly honest, I do not normally read books with ‘cartoon’ type covers.  Then one of my favorite paranormal author brings out a book with a ‘cartoon’ type cover, and I have to eat my convictions.  ARGH. Well they did go down smoothly.

The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride by Kristen Painter is an utterly charming romance. The story captivated my imagination as Delaney James, would be confectionary maker finds herself in Nocturnal Falls GA. Hugh Ellingham is the would be groom, who happens to be a vampire. He also happens to not know he is the would be groom as his grandmother has arranged for him to meet a nice young lady.  Oi Vey! The dialogue is witty, the love story is enchanting and as always Painter builds a complete world in this romance. Plus Painter does put the heroine of the story into a dangerous situation, so there is a element of danger to the story.   If you are looking for a romance to put a smile on your face and make your heart swell this is the one.

Note sexual content takes place off page.
