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. Death is what grim reaper Lucien Dupree knows best. Or rather, he did until his reaping powers became tragically unreliable. Now he’s living in a self-imposed exile to keep humanity safe. Sure, it’s a lonely existence, but it’s the best thing for everyone.

Had sworn off reading another book with a reaper as the main character, having been disappointed by a different author's book.
But I decided to try this since it was written by Kristen Painter and narrated by B. J. Harrison. They are a winning team. This book is a wonderful addition to the Nocturne Falls series and I even fell in love with the Reaper (and the rest of the new characters in this volume also of course). This story had enough twists and turns to keep me trying to figure out how it would turn out. I even thought the story was going to end at one point and noticed there were still a lot of chapters to go. It extended beyond what I thought would be the end and I am so glad it did. Kristen Painter made it all pull together perfectly. B. J. Harrison is my favorite male narrator and even he surprised me outdoing his other audiobook narrations of this series. Three cheers for him. I am so glad he is the narrator for this series, it is like icing on a cake. This book will be on my 're-read later' list.

Kaylae Drayce is convinced she’s crazy. She hears voices in her head and dreams of fiery apocalyptic wars. That’s nothing compared to the terror she feels when the only people she loves are taken from her and she’s forced to run for her life all the way to Nocturne Falls. The town promises her one of two things: answers to her madness or a one-way ticket to an asylum.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe Story to be better than the print version?

I love many of the bonus books about Nocturne Falls by various authors but this one so far is my favorite. I know I will be re-reading this on a regular basis. Kira Nyte did an absolutely WONDERFUL job with this story and B J. Harrison brought it to life in his always excellent way with voices, accents, inflections, and emotions.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe Story?

I don't want to put any spoilers in this so that each new reader will have the joy of watching the events unfold in their minds.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of them. Each scene was equally important, mixed with excitement, love, and involvement in the story that included some of the regular 'people' we love so much in Nocturne Falls.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. I am looking forward to the next time I read it to hear some of the parts I missed the first time around.

Any additional comments?

This book is definitely worth a credit.

Dr. Sophie Mead has a problem. She's falling for one of Nocturne Falls' resident gargoyles: the tall, muscled, and sexy Elias Saunders. But when Elias comes to her after being attacked, she has to put aside her attraction for him. What looks like a small mark on his left forearm is more than just a mark. His skin is turning to stone - and it's spreading.

In the top groups, the ones I know I will be reading over again from time to time. I love this book. The story captured my attention from the start and didn't want to put the book down.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I can't limit this question to only one. I love Elias, Sofie, and Charles. They were all great and are great additions to the Nocturne Falls community.

Have you listened to any of B.J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

B. J. Harrison did another excellent job with ALL of the characters. I love the way he brings all of the fabulous characters to life to join the rest of the citizens of this marvelous Universe I love. He makes me want to meet all of them in person and get to know them more.

Welcome to Nocturne Falls full of a diversity of beings that live together in one marvelous town.

Laurel Barker is a nymph on a mission: find a new home for herself, her lackadaisical dog, and her tree. The free-spirited wood nymph is soul-bound to the tree she saved before it was cut down to make room for a golf course. She hopes that a town full of supernatural folks will be the haven she needs to finally put down roots. Because her tree isn't looking so hot, and if he dies, so does she. It's not a fate she cares to experience, especially after running into the too-hot-to-be-legal police officer in town.

Where does The Nymph Next Door rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Have been listening to the books for Nocturne Falls written by other authors than Kristen Painter but this one is one of the best so far especially with B.J. Harrison as the narrator. I love this story and know I will be reading it again from time to time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Love Laurel and Aiden equally. I look forward to hearing more about them in future books. They fit in with so many of the characters that have become 'friends' in my book reading. Very real and also added more paranormal characteristics to the mix in Nocturne Falls.

Which scene was your favorite?

I love that Aiden showed his true self to Laurel.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the explanation about the dog and the tree was divulged.

I plan on looking for more books by this author J. L. Farey. I like her style.

I had put off reading this book but wish I hadn't. However it was good timing because once I started it, I didn't do any of what I was planning on doing today. Instead I just listened to this because I couldn't put it down. Actually, I kept looking a the cover and the book name and was sure I was not going to want to finish it when I started it. How wrong I was.

The author did and excellent job setting up the characters, the overall 'picture' of the different species, the world of they live in (along with the politics) and she did it without it being boring in those parts. It is very well written and held my attention. In fact I often play computer games when listening to many books but couldn't with this because I wanted to pay attention to all of the details in the book. The narrator was great also.

I love it when a story makes me feel very close to the characters and everything they are experiencing. It was refreshing to have the relationship between Brishon and Ildiko move slowly without jumping immediately into a sex session like so many books. And the story did not drag at all with the way it was handled. In fact, I think it made it more intense for me. I fell in love with both of the main characters and admire the personalities of each immensely.

I definitely recommend this book. I had gotten away from paranormal romances that I used to love so much and now can't wait to get more of them again. This book is definitely worth the credit and I will be looking for more from this author/narrator pair.

I love series like this that get you involved in the whole community of unusual fun and sometimes annoying characters. The narrator took getting used to how she presented the various characters some with very annoying voices and personalities. But it all worked together great with the story. I have come to really enjoy stories that take place in cities populated by a huge variety of paranormals and their interactions. The characters, their city, and the events are kind of addictive and leave us with looking forward to the next 'messy scenario' they get involved in.

While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Stranded in England without money or a ticket home, Mercy Starling takes a job working for a medieval reenactment company. Dressing in armor and wielding swords and longbows is a blast, but the best part is going to Bestwood Hall and meeting its intriguing new owner. The painfully shy Alden Ainslie is overwhelmed by the medieval reenactors who invade the Tudor house he's renovating, but he's drawn to the bubbly Mercy.

For many years my #1 book has been You Slay Me (also my Katie MacAlister). I have read it many times and got other people reading it and LOVING it also. I got this for the start of the Romance package and I am more than just pleased. I have never laughed out loud so much to any other book in my life. My laughter could be heard in other rooms of the house. Sometimes I had difficulty calming down to read more. To say I love this book is an extreme understatement. I look forward to re-reading it sometime soon in the future. I read over 200 books a year and I have a select few that I just can't help but re-read on a regular basis. You Slay Me has been read at least 10 times by me. It never gets old and a big reason is the character Jim. There is a sequel to 'Daring in a Blue Dress' and I will be reading that too. I have a feeling it will also be high on my best loved books list.

I love the characters in this book and the story line is GREAT and it has just enough naughty to make it soooo much fun. I love how the romantic connection was done in a non-syrupy way.

I dare anyone to read this and try not to laugh and enjoy the ride. I betcha can't. LOL

At first it seems as though he has his prey cornered, only to confront a beautiful feline-shifter, Camille Nahuel, instead. She dances around the floor with sultry steps, instructing a ballroom class, and dances around his heart even faster. Oh, tango, the game is on. Can Nathaniel control his annoyance long enough to finish his job and save his love?
