Sebastian Ellingham isn’t known for being a happy vampire. And when his long estranged wife comes to town expecting to pick up where they left off, things take a sharp turn toward cranky. Sure he’s been protecting her for centuries, but her assumption that he’s still available (he is) rankles.
His answer is to hire a woman to play his fiancée. The lucky victim is Tessa Blythe, sister of one of the town’s deputies, librarian in need of a job and, oh yes, reluctant Valkyrie. Playing along with Sebastian is all about the end game for her, the position of Dean of Library Studies at the local private academy.
When unexpected sparks fly between them, they agree to mutually deny the attraction. Fate, however, has other plans…
While I’ve enjoyed every book in this series so far, I think The Vampire’s Fake Fiancée is my favorite. I think it’s because it doesn’t follow the same pattern the others do. Not that the pattern in the others is a bad thing, I just liked that this one was a bit different from the rest in that sense.
I’ll admit I really didn’t know what a Valkyrie was. But now that I do, I totally want to know more. I’ve not read anything about them in the past, so it was nice to be introduced to them through one of my favorite paranormal romance series.
I love this author’s writing style. Her books have a nice pace that keeps the reader interested without providing a lot of filler information, which makes me a very happy reader. Her characters are always interesting and with each book, we learn more and more about the back stories of the residents of Nocturne Falls.
If you like Paranormal Romance, you should definitely check out this series. I’m not a huge romance fan, but there is just enough in this series to be sweet but not overwhelming.
