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.
For romance writer Roxy St. James, living in Nocturne Falls also means a fresh start. And as soon as her unbearable ex signs the divorce papers, that new beginning will be a reality. Unfortunately, her ex doesn't seem ready to let her go and the subtle threats he's been making leave her no choice but to confide in her oh-so-handsome neighbor, who just happens to be a deputy with the sheriff's department. But Officer Alex Cruz isn't just the law. He's also a panther shifter, a secret he's sworn to keep (along with the truth about Nocturne Falls) from the very foxy Roxy. Humans aren't supposed to know the town is filled with supernaturals. Then she starts seeing things she shouldn't and thinks she's losing her mind. His attraction - and concern - for her wars with the promise he's made. Will his truth be more than she can handle? Or will it cause her to write him out of her life?

No but I do consider it equally as good!
Love his accents and narration style
Loved this book, Roxy is awesome! She's a perfect fit for Nocturne Falls and for Alex. There were a couple of twists as well and I really liked how it all turned out! Can't wait for the next book!
"Delightfully Cute Romance!"
The Shifter Romances the Writer is an another AWESOME addition to the series! It's clean, cute, and funny. I loved the paranormal romance author wrote a story about a paranormal romance writer, and enjoyed the glimpses Roxy's character shares about being a writer. The name of Roxy's hit series "Blood Moon Brotherhood" was just too cute! (The name kinda reminds me of another one of my favorite series.)
Kristen Painter is an amazing author! She proves you can write an excellent story that is entertaining, clean, romantic, and exciting, while remaining totally PG. Don't get me wrong, I love really steamy stories, but I also love variety, and adding the Nocturne Falls series to my collection, gives me that variety. Kristen also does a fantastic job of world building, and character development with Nocturne Falls, and it's unique characters. I love how each story manages to weave in some of towns well know residence, while introducing new ones. This could be a series that could go on for a very long time!
The narration, as always, was great! B.J. Harrison does an outstanding job bringing the character's to life, and projecting all the different emotions. He has been consistent with the voices throughout the series, and there's a lot of characters. I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance.
I recommend this story and series to any PNR fan who loves a great story that is both entertaining, and clean!
"Kristen's done it again."
Another great book in the Nocturne series. This is one of my favorite series and i was so excited when it finally hit audibles. This book made me laugh and laugh. I just love all the characters. This book was about a friend of Delaney's who is a paranormal book writer. She comes to live in Nocturne Falls not realizing she just bought a house next door to panther shifter and her friend is now a vampire. She thinks she is going crazy when she starts seeing things. Fangs on her friend, a big panther, gills on a woman putting in her fish tank. When she finally finds out that there are supernaturals she is shocked and then gets mad at Alex her next door neighbor( and potential boyfriend) and her friend for not telling her the truth. And to top things off she has a stalker. But all works out in the end for everyone. I recommend this book and all the others from this series. Can't wait till the next. Hated it when it ended.
"Total fun, perfect light reading"
These books are just plain fun! They keep my interest and the reader is well spoken. This is a great series to lift your spirits and put a smile on your face!
"A supernatural fun read!!"
I love this series becauseit is about finding love in the small town of. Nocturne Falls. In Kirsten world you can be any type of super natural and find love,excitement, and adventure.
I love the way B.J.Harrison narrates these books. I love the way how her voice changes for each character.
I f you have not read or listen to this series and you love the paranormal world, you are definitely missing out on a good series.
"Kristen Painter did it again!"
Oh that is a big YES! I love the Nocturne Falls series, ir is just awesome! The town is adorable and exciting. The characters are a great mixture of types - all lovable. I love the re-occurring characters from the other stories.
Alex, hands down. But his mother, Carmen - I love her just as much as I love Aunt Birdy. Supporting characters are very important.
Yes, but only in this series. He is great and keeps the story going smoothly all the way to the end.
Of this one book? Well I would call it "Panther heat." But really I would love to see this series made into a mini-series (TV) or maybe a series of movies like "Nocturne Falls". I would love to watch this. And when it came out on DVD or Blu-Ray I would have to have for my library. Kristen - think about it. :-)
Kristen......keep those stories coming for Nocturne Falls.....please!!! Publish on Audible quicker too. Love you!
Interesting and likable characters, storyline, and plot. A few sections didn't seem as polished as Ms. Painter's other Nocturne Falls books are but overall a good addition to the series. The narrator did a great job as always!
"A sexy human and a hot werepanther"
A sexy human paranormal author and a hot werepanther cop, what could be more fun? Make it more fun? Okay. Add a meddling mother for him and a meddling pregnant best friend for her and a town of supernaturals that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year AND romance without blatant sex, humor, sadness, AND suspense. It’s a fun read.
I love this series which can also be read as stand-alone books. However, for those who are following the series you will run into old friends like Hugh, Delaney, Pandora and many others from Nocturne Falls. I have loved all the books in the series, except “Miss Frost Solves a Cold Case.”
Ms. Painter said she was working on book 6 for this series and it was going to be out in “maybe May or June”. Where is it? Anxiously waiting.
"I'm a guy who enjoy's Nocture Falls Books"
I enjoy the Stories and having them read by B. J. Harrison who brings them to life.
When her boyfriend's Mom shifts into a Panther in front of her.
He brings a real sense of life and I enjoy listening to him tell the story.
I cannot say. I just enjoy Ms. Painter's stories about Nocturne Falls and await more..
I would invite others to come and enjoy Nocturne Falls.
Well, between the romance books I'm reading, this will surely be among those that I want to hear again.
I love the way Kristen Painter introduces fun moments inistory, such as the arrival of Alex's mother to Nocturne Falls.
In my opinion his performances was perfect, his voice is nice with a great pronounce the words. I only have compliments to make.
This is the kind of book you can get a little insecure to buy because it is a romance, but then you know the story and you're in love. This is the kind of book that is good for the soul, to make you relax.
I read it straight threw. I couldn't put it down. You don't have to read this book in the order written. Can be read as a stand alone.
