My Rating : 5 Dragon Prints
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.
