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 in town know better.

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

Vampire Sebastian Ellingham wants one thing: to marry Tessa Blythe, the Valkyrie he's fallen madly in love with. So meeting her parents seems like the natural thing to do. He's even looking forward to it, until he discovers they've already found her a husband. Now the only way to keep Tessa in his life is to complete a series of tests meant for a very different kind of supernatural. And failing means losing her forever.

Another great short

This installment was another great addition to the Nocturne Falls series. As always Kristen Painter and B. J. Harrison team-up create a most entertaining story. As always, I look forward to the next installment.

aww sebastian

It was nice catching up wit the family that started it all. While the "rules" Tessa's family seemed to abide by started off as outdated and ridiculous. The final test and the father's explanation made it all make sense. Although in the real world, I can't say how soon I would have welcomed them into my home lol...ijs

I like this series

I like this series. The narrator is wonderful. I loved the deep voice of the dad and his accented voices are delicious. I wouldn't mind having him join the M K Eidem dream team of narrators.

Nice short continuation story.

This was a nice short continuation story on Sebastian and Tessa. It could have been added to their book but it was still okay on its own. I love the series.

WONDERFUL SERIES!!!!!

Would you listen to The Vampire's True Love Trials again? Why?

I did listen again. The story is good and very well executed on all fronts.

What did you like best about this story?

Can not really choose what I liked best.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Tessa's father and mother gave their blessing to the marriage. What every parent wants for their children!

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

Not really.

Any additional comments?

The entire series is a great escape. B.J. Harrison is a master narrator. Whether it is a male or female speaking, whatever the dialect, it is always on point. Kristen Painter's tales are the cake; B.J. Harrison is the frosting. I recommend!

Narcissistic parents— I kept growling while listening

If it had been me I would have told them to go f—- themselves.

Then informed them they would be cut out forever, which is an actual thing for vamps.

Could have been a full novel

It was a short book that was basically an extension of the 5th book in the series. Personally, I think it was a good story and could have held as a full novel if it were longer. I saw several different ways the story could have went.

I definitely thought the parents were being douches, but it had a pleasant ending for me.

Sebastian, the Lover

A rather short but sweet story on how Sebastian and Tessa showed how perfect they were for each other. I thought I'd be bored because of the challenges, but I enjoyed listening to them.
There's also an additional important event by the end of this book, so keep listening!

A satisfying short story.

This was a bite size (see what I did there?) visit into the world of Nocturne Falls.

Vampire Sebastian Ellingham wants to marry his beloved Valkyrie Tessa Blythe but her parents throw a huge spanner in the works. If Sebastian wants to marry her and not lose her to an arranged marriage then he has to take on trials. The problem is that these challenges are designed with Valkyries and Beserkers. not Vampires.

This was a quick listen but Kristen Painter fitted an awful lot into The Vampires True Love Trials.

short but sweet

You need to read this after book 6 in the series so you understand what's going on. It's short but fun and it's nice to see more of this couple.
