After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn't know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Not really, all good , all the normal ups and downs in an adventure.

Brody is a soldier who misses the excitement of the military and its missions. He retired to work as clan beta in Kodiak Point. Talk about boring, until he's captured by a foreign enemy. Him, a prisoner? Not for long. This wolf will do anything in order to get away - even if it involves seduction. The first step in plotting his escape: pretend interest in a woman. But Layla isn't just any woman. She's special. Not human. Not shifter. He doesn't know what this exotic lady is, other than his.

Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black's been catching her z's in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman - dead or alive.

When Mist was trying to escape the dragon layer

Any additional comments?

This book was proof of how a good narrator can keep a good book a winner, too many times had a decent book been ruined by a poor one.
