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.
Monalisa Devlin is a Will O' The Wisp, a rare and potentially dangerous creature. Unfortunately, her greedy father makes sure she lives up to that potential. Monalisa is magically compelled to obey her father's evil commands - until he finally agrees to free her in exchange for one last mission: travel to Nocturne Falls and use her powers to force Ivan Tsvetkov back into the ring.
Once a champion on the supernatural MMA circuit, Ivan "The Hammer" Tsvetkov retired after a devastating injury that left him unable to shift into his dragon form. Wounded and embittered, Ivan wants nothing more than to be left alone. Until an infuriating, stubborn, delicately beautiful stranger shows up on his doorstep and demands that he rebuild his life.
Posing as a rehab therapist seemed like the easiest way to get close to the smoldering recluse, but Monalisa quickly realizes that nothing about this mission is going to be easy. To gain his trust, she shares more of herself than she ever has before, and as their connection deepens, so does the weight of her secrets. She thought she was willing to do whatever it took to win her independence...but when her deception blows up in her face, will Monalisa discover that the loss of Ivan's heart is too high a price to pay? Or will their love rise from the ashes to burn stronger than ever?

The publisher summary is spot on, and this newest addition is among one of my favorites in the series. I LOVED Ivan, the dragon 🐉 aka "The Hammer"! He was big, looked dangerous, but underneath all his tough exterior, he really was a fun loving person. I've listened to several dragon shifter stories lately, and they were all different but the one thing they all had in common was the dragon's hoard! I love how authors own their characters, put their special spin on them, but still stick to traditions.
Monalisa's character may have been small compared to the dragon, but her supernatural power made her dangerous in her own way; however, the control her father held over her was unforgivable. I liked how Ivan and the rest of the NF characters gave her the strength to finally stand up to her father and get her coin.
These stories are totally PG, but Kristen Painter does an amazing job creating plots that are always fun, clean, sweet, and low on angst. The world building is fantastic, and filled with a wide variety of characters, and I love how each book introduces new characters, while managing to always include our favorites to help the H/h along the way. While some stories may be better than others, each plot is fresh, delivers HEA, and could easily be a stand alone, but I do recommend listening to them in order.
BJ Harrison delivers another outstanding performance! He does such an amazing job with all the characters, accents, emotions and really makes it easy to identify who is speaking just from his character's voices.
For any NF's fan, this one's a must! For anyone new to the series, I highly recommend it, especially if you like paranormal stories fun, sweet and on the clean side.
I love the Nocture Falls series because it always has a happy ending and I'm completely ok with that! They are my go to books on a bad day!
Books are the doors to other places. READ!!!!
Kristen does it again.I just love her stories. Makes me wish i was a supernatural and living in Nocturne Falls. This was about a dragon shifter who is Russian and is a MMA type fighter who lost his last match and injured himself when he got distracted by a bright light when he was in the ring. Now he is done with fighting. The Leprechaun king wants him to come back and do a rematch. He sends his daughter to pretend she is a therapist to help with rehab and to use her gift of persuasion to make him come back. His only interest is making money. He keeps his daughter under his control and will not give her the freedom she wants. She can only gain her freedom if he gives her a gold coin from his leprechaun pot of gold. He always promises but never does. He holds it over her head and make her do bad deed for him. However, he did not count on her falling in love with the dragon shifter, Van. Things have a way of working out for all. Especially when you have good friends to help. The narrator is fantastic. I just loved the Russian accent. Can't wait till the next adventure.
I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.
All of the Nocturne Falls stories are enjoyable reads/listening. I love reading/listening to Paranormal fiction, and this is the fun end of the spectrum.
As for "The Dragon Finds Forever", it was fun from the start. I don't want to give away the story--but---Nocturne Falls is collecting a well rounded group of neighbors.
I have never read any of the print versions of this series. I love the Narrator.
I don't think I could choose, I love all of them.
Yes, and as every B.J. did an amazing job.
This is a great book; this is the seventh book in the Nocturne Falls series written by Kristen Painter and narrated by B.J. Harrison. Nocturne Falls, is a town that celebrates Halloween 365 days of the year. The tourists love the show of vampires, werewolves, witches, etc. What they don’t realize is this is a haven for the paranormal creatures to be themselves. Monalisa Devlin is a Will O’ The Wisp, a rare and potentially dangerous creature. Unfortunately, her greedy father makes sure she lives up to that potential. Monalisa is magically compelled to obey her father's evil commands--until he finally agrees to free her in exchange for one, last mission: Travel to Nocturne Falls and use her powers to force Ivan Tsvetkov back into the ring. Once a champion on the supernatural MMA circuit, Ivan 'The Hammer' Tsvetkov retired after a devastating injury that left him unable to shift into his dragon form. Wounded and embittered, Ivan wants nothing more than to be left alone. Until an infuriating, stubborn, delicately beautiful stranger shows up on his doorstep and demands that he rebuild his life.
This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises.
The narrator B.J. Harrison did a wonderful job with this book. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
Love love love this series. It just keeps getting better. Write faster please. Love how each story stands alone yet combines with the others.
I really like the fact that they were flirty with each other. But I found that most of the story was rushed mainly the ending and it was very obvious as to what was going to happen next
