***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
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 on stage, 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?
Anyone that follows my reviews will know that it is no secret that I love these books, and this world, and honestly – I just want to move that.
With that being said I was both excited and nervous, well OK Yes more excited, but I have been waiting, as I know many fans have been, forever for Julian’s story. Fans of the series would know that it would take a very special person to convince this guy to settle down AND make it believable BUT Kristen has done it! As all these books are HEA I don’t feel that this breaks my non spoiler rule and I have to say Desdemona Valentine has fast become one of my favorite characters. That might not be an opinion shared by everyone ….. but I do love a girl with a bit of sass, and Desdemona has that in spades!
Although new fans could probably jump right in with this story as they are all complete in their own rights (no cliffhangers), I really think you get the most out of this series if you know the characters from before and hey as book 1 is currently free – seriously what do you have to lose?
An Easy 5 stars from me and a distinct need to try and find this place! I think I would fit right in …… right?
