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.

Las Vegas headliner and vampire Desdemona Valentine is one cool, collected diva on the outside. On the inside she's petrified of falling in love after her last relationship nearly killed her...literally. Protecting her wounded heart makes for a lonely life, but she has her fame and fortune to keep her company. Who needs anything more?

Julian Ellingham does. One look at Desdemona onstage, and the vampire is smitten. She initially ignores him, but his relentless pursuit pays off when a wild night ends in a Vegas wedding. Finally Julian has everything he wants while all Desdemona wants is...a divorce.

Julian sweet-talks Desdemona into letting him prove his love, but his time is running out. Especially after someone repeatedly tries to turn his bride to ash. When Desdemona flees Vegas for the spooky streets of Nocturne Falls and Julian's protection, he's more than willing to help out. But can he convince Desdemona to trust him, or will "death do us part" become a reality?

This series is addictive

I am decidedly not a romance reader, but somehow I love this series! The world building is clever, the narrator is talented and the stories have just enough of a twist in the mystery to keep me wondering about the plot even though I know there will be a happy ending. I really enjoy the romantic tension without the graphic details (why can't everyone do this ?) . The author has managed to write a romance series that even this romance series hater truly enjoys.

Accidentally Wonderful

As with all Kristen's books, this was amazing! There aren't good enough words to express how great her books are. I loved these characters. Desdemona is a great match for Julian. It was interesting who was stalking her. We have a mention of Harlan. I hope he gets a book soon. I just love him. Of course, my favorite, Birdie, plays a huge role in this one. I can't wait for you to read/listen to it.

Who could resist this narrator? He is by far one of the best voices out there. He is a natural talent at all different voices.

BJ Harrison just gets better and better!

Any additional comments?

Kristen Painter's The Vampire's Accidental Wife, Nocturne Falls #8, is narrated by the wonderful BJ Harrison.

This may be my favorite BJ Harrison yet! His ability to change his voice for so many diverse characters is incredible. There is no doubt who is speaking in the book when you listen to BJ Harrison.

Solid 5 stars across the board.

Love is in the air

Another winner. I cannot express how much i love this series. This one is about Julian and the woman he loves. However, Destimona is afraid to love because of a bad experience in her past. They get married in Vegas and she does not even remember. Now someone is stalking her. She goes back to Nocturne Falls to try and hide while they try to decide if they will stay married and also to keep her safe till they can find out who is staling her. However, the stalker follows. Will Julian be able to keep her safe? This is a must read.

When a Vamp Playboy Falls for a Vamp Vegas Gal

Julian Ellingham finally gets his own story, the flirtatious vamp about Nocturne Falls has completely fallen for Vegas Vamp and Showgal, Desdemona Valentine. However, Desdemona is not as smitten as he is. But through a series of events that include Desdemona being in danger they are thrown together in Nocturne Falls to spend some time together and see what arises. This series continues to be sweet, light, and fun. Desdemona is a breath of fresh air and a very different female protagonist than we have ever seen before in the series. She and Julian's romance is coming from a different place than the other stories as well they begin having gotten married one night in Vegas and Desdemona wants a divorce. There was lots of playful humor with enough conflict that lasts just long enough to build tension but never enough to cause any real worry. The readers of Nocturne Falls never have to fear a sad ending or a cliff hanger. B.J. Harrison does a spectacular job with the voices. The romance is sweet and flirty but never hot and bothered. Light, playful, PG, Supernatural Romance that is an easy listen. Great addition to the series.

My Favorite In The Series!

I have been reading this series now from Book 1 of the main Nocturne Falls series through the Jane Frost series and even the Nocturne Falls Universe series. So far this one has been my favorite because it was so well written, including crime, mystery, drama and suspense - it has it all!!

Quite good

Only challenges with this one are the “racial minority” characters.

For the author: 1) Why did the Insomnia bartender not get a specific country of origin instead of “Asian”? 2) Why didn’t Desdemona get a specific Caribbean isle of origin?

All other characters are assumed to be “white / Caucasian” American, and any others are specifically called out by specific country of origin.

Other than that, still waiting to get over the damsel in distress with demons she can’t slay to be saved by supernatural male trope that’s frequently played out in the stories.

Overall, enjoying the series as it offers a different perspective on mythological and fantasy creatures. Happily occupying the same town is a worthy perspective.

BJ makes for a decent audio narrator.

Happy listening and / or reading.
