The Vampire’s Fake Fiancée by Kristen Painter


The Vampire’s Fake Fiancée
By Kristen Painter

I received an ARC from the author/publisher for an honest review. There are minor spoilers (most of what you find in chapter 1) found in the review.

When Librarian Extraordinary and Valkyrie turned pacifist, Tessa Blythe, is talked into moving to Nocturne Falls by her sister Deputy Blythe, little does she know that her life is about to change in an every book-geek-girls fantasy sort of way. What better reason to move than the potential of Tessa’s dream job of Dean of the Library at the supernatural only private school run by the Ellinghams?

Sebastian Ellingham, dour, serious and still hopelessly lost without Evangeline. When she comes back to town to give him his wish, he discovers that she hasn’t changed at all, and is still selfish, spoiled, and well caustically demeaning. He still wants her back, and plans to do so in such a way that she will respect him ever after. His pride leads to a BIG lie, that he’s moved on, and is engaged to another.

Deputy Blythe volunteers Tessa as the poor soul who will play Sebastian’s betrothed as long as it comes with the dream job if she pulls it off well. Then the real fun begins. Our own Pride & Prejudice in Nocturne Falls. Seriously, Sebastian IS Mr Darcy {Swooning here}.

When the Ellinghams rally behind Sebastian, the variety of characters comes out in a colorful montage that gives light to just how talented an author Kristen really is. She brilliantly brings the characters to life, and ensures that a twisted tale of detours and speed-bumps ensures for all involved.

Tessa and Sebastian are my second favorite NF couple. Hugh and Delaney still occupy first place.

I have to give this story 5 stars because I can’t give it more. Wonderfully written, charming and well just every book-geek-girls fantasy come true. Why oh why won’t any rich guys give me a library????
