Book Review: The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1)

Title:  The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1)mail

Author: Kristen Painter

Source: Downloaded free Kindle book from Amazon.

My Rating : 5 Dragon Prints d5d4d3d2d1

I have to confess a couple of things. First, I’m not into vampire stories. The only decent vampire story that I liked was by a fellow self- published author called The Bathory Curse. Second, I secretly love Happily Ever After stories, though don’t tell that to anyone. It’s a secret. Third, the cover of The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1) is beautiful, though the guy is ugly. Good thing my imagination fixed Hugh’s image for me. 😉

This novel is about a young woman who witnessed a crime. She figures that taking some woman’s identity can help her survive her ex-boss and ends up being a bride for a vampire… though it takes a while for her to learn that Hugh is a vampire. She also didn’t figure on falling in love and staying in the Halloween town.

This paranormal romance is a nice story to read by the fire with ice cream and popcorn. It sent me into giggling fits a couple of times because of a couple of fun scenes and it is beautifully written. I am truly a fan of romance, mainly because romances tend to end well and at the moment, I am all too happy to read about something happy. This story has enough of paranormal and even better enough of scenes with normality in them, like Delaney wanting to cook for herself, dreaming about owning a sweets shop, and her witty conversations with the women in Hugh’s life. Let’s not forget Hugh’s awesome rook.

 

I highly recommend to the readers  (18+ years) who have an interest in paranormal romance, witches, fae, and vampires. You guys will love this. There are more books in the series which are for sale on Amazon and involve other paranormal couples of the Nocturne Falls. I am still debating on reading them.

Book Review: Forever Charmed (Halloween LaVeau #1)

Book Title: Forever Charmed (Halloween LaVeau #1) hallie

 

Book Author: Rose Pressey

Source: Downloaded free Kindle book from Amazon.

Rating: 4 Dragon Paws 4

 

This is another great one that is available on Amazon to download for free about witches, vampires, covens, and something called the Underworld. What drew me to the book was the main heroine, Hallie or Halloween. I’m not sure how she is, but I do know that Rose made her easy to relate to. It was a first time for me to read about a witch who was bad with magic so it was a new experience.

Hallie inherits her grandmother’s house, which she turns into a bed and breakfast. Soon after, she gets three visitors, and all of them are hiding things from her. And, only one of them paid for the room so Hallie didn’t even make any real money off of them. Besides inheriting the house, she inherits three books which create a whole new turn in her life. Basically, I really liked the story.

The story is written well, with interesting twists, and hot men. However, the reason why I did not give it a five dragon paw rating was because it was a little slow for me. There was a moment that probably we all were waiting for, to meet Mara and that zoomed fast. I didn’t think that it would be that easy and expected to see more of her, though, maybe we will be in the next books. I am interested in buying the rest of the books in the series ($3.99 on Kindle), but not right away.

I highly recommend to the readers  (18+ years) who have an interest in paranormal romance, witches, and spooky houses with secrets.
