Publisher's 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 populating the town know better.

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

Las Vegas headliner and vampire Desdemona Valentine is one cool, collected diva on the outside. On the inside she's petrified of falling in love after her last relationship nearly killed her...literally. Protecting her wounded heart makes for a lonely life, but she has her fame and fortune to keep her company. Who needs anything more?

Julian Ellingham does. One look at Desdemona onstage, and the vampire is smitten. She initially ignores him, but his relentless pursuit pays off when a wild night ends in a Vegas wedding. Finally Julian has everything he wants while all Desdemona wants is...a divorce.

Julian sweet-talks Desdemona into letting him prove his love, but his time is running out. Especially after someone repeatedly tries to turn his bride to ash. When Desdemona flees Vegas for the spooky streets of Nocturne Falls and Julian's protection, he's more than willing to help out. But can he convince Desdemona to trust him, or will "death do us part" become a reality?

Accidentally Wonderful

As with all Kristen's books, this was amazing! There aren't good enough words to express how great her books are. I loved these characters. Desdemona is a great match for Julian. It was interesting who was stalking her. We have a mention of Harlan. I hope he gets a book soon. I just love him. Of course, my favorite, Birdie, plays a huge role in this one. I can't wait for you to read/listen to it.

Who could resist this narrator? He is by far one of the best voices out there. He is a natural talent at all different voices.

This series is addictive

I am decidedly not a romance reader, but somehow I love this series! The world building is clever, the narrator is talented and the stories have just enough of a twist in the mystery to keep me wondering about the plot even though I know there will be a happy ending. I really enjoy the romantic tension without the graphic details (why can't everyone do this ?) . The author has managed to write a romance series that even this romance series hater truly enjoys.

Love is in the air

Another winner. I cannot express how much i love this series. This one is about Julian and the woman he loves. However, Destimona is afraid to love because of a bad experience in her past. They get married in Vegas and she does not even remember. Now someone is stalking her. She goes back to Nocturne Falls to try and hide while they try to decide if they will stay married and also to keep her safe till they can find out who is staling her. However, the stalker follows. Will Julian be able to keep her safe? This is a must read.

Good but not the best

While I've enjoyed the entire series up to now, this book fell a little short in my opinion. I can't quite put my finger on it, it's just a feeling - like somehow the story felt forced and just wasn't all there for me. Don't get me wrong, it's well written, like the others. It's just the passion and intensity wasn't there between the characters. The whole thing just felt off.

BJ Harrison just gets better and better!

Any additional comments?

Kristen Painter's The Vampire's Accidental Wife, Nocturne Falls #8, is narrated by the wonderful BJ Harrison.

This may be my favorite BJ Harrison yet! His ability to change his voice for so many diverse characters is incredible. There is no doubt who is speaking in the book when you listen to BJ Harrison.

Solid 5 stars across the board.

Does not meet expectations.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Younger audience.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Going back to the Molly Harper books

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was just okay.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed. Not very interesting.

Any additional comments?

In all fairness, I did not finish the book. I found it boring. I wish I had returned it for another book. Save yourself some listening time and get a different book.

Sorry, but I did not enjoy this book.

Good ended to a great series!

You know, what I like about Kristen Painter's writting is that although they are romance books, there is usually a very creative plot and adventure. They definitely aren't boring books and this one is no different. I hate that this particular series is over, but I've prolonged it long enough. Several months actually. I recommend Nocturne Falls if supernatural romance adventure is your thing.
