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 in town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

Vampire Sebastian Ellingham wants one thing: to marry Tessa Blythe, the Valkyrie he's fallen madly in love with. So meeting her parents seems like the natural thing to do. He's even looking forward to it, until he discovers they've already found her a husband. Now the only way to keep Tessa in his life is to complete a series of tests meant for a very different kind of supernatural. And failing means losing her forever.

A satisfying short story.

This was a bite size (see what I did there?) visit into the world of Nocturne Falls.

Vampire Sebastian Ellingham wants to marry his beloved Valkyrie Tessa Blythe but her parents throw a huge spanner in the works. If Sebastian wants to marry her and not lose her to an arranged marriage then he has to take on trials. The problem is that these challenges are designed with Valkyries and Beserkers. not Vampires.

This was a quick listen but Kristen Painter fitted an awful lot into The Vampires True Love Trials.

short but sweet

You need to read this after book 6 in the series so you understand what's going on. It's short but fun and it's nice to see more of this couple.

Another great short

This installment was another great addition to the Nocturne Falls series. As always Kristen Painter and B. J. Harrison team-up create a most entertaining story. As always, I look forward to the next installment.

Tests of Love

Sebastian and Tessa are ready to take their relationship to the next level. But first they need her parents approval; which is tricky since they already arranged a marriage for her.
Together they get through the trials, and show their love is stronger than anything that tries to tear them apart.

Sebastian Meets His Valkyrie's Parents

This is a great addition to the series and a return to one of my favorite couples in Nocturne Falls Sebastian and Tessa. We get to see the next stage in their relationship and the confrontation with Tessa's parents and Valkyrie traditions. It was nice to get more background on Tessa's family and their relationship as well as to get another glance at the equal power partnership that is Tessa and Sebastian. The pace is fast and fun with the expected amount of sweet romance, short lived conflicts, and warm fuzzy happy endings. B.J. Harrison does his normal excellent work with bringing two new characters to life in this sweet new volume to the series. I am very appreciative that so many of this series are available through Audible Escape as I don't know that I would want to buy all these shorts individually.

Short but good

These books are quick to get through.

Disappointed the author never said what the other challenges are or what Gunther did for his third.

More of an Epilogue

This story picks up shortly after the events in The Vampires Fake Fiancé. I would have liked to see more trials but it was a nice story. And you get to see the birth of Hugh and Delaneys baby. Yeah!!!
