The Werewolf Dates the Deputy


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. 

Fire chief and werewolf Titus Merrow has a pretty good life. Great family, great job, great friends. No love interest, sure, but he’s got too much going on to worry about that. Like the 10K race for charity that he’s helping to plan. Too bad the woman he’s planning it with is so hot. No, wait. He meant annoying. 

Sheriff’s deputy and valkyrie Jenna Blythe has somehow gotten stuck working on a charity event with her boss’ brother. Not only is Titus Merrow full of himself, but he challenges every suggestion she makes about the race. Why are the handsome ones always so smug? She can’t wait to beat him in the competition and bring home the trophy for the sheriff’s department. Again. 

But when they answer a call together and things explode, dangerous magic is unleashed. They’re suddenly forced to work together. Literally. And the magic only gets more treacherous as time ticks forward. Not even Jenna’s good friend seems to be able to help them as shady forces lurk in every shadow. 

Swords and sorcery abound, and Jenna’s past comes back to haunt her. She and Titus are left with no choice but to question everything - and everyone. Who’s targeting them? Is what they’re feeling real? Can love survive against darkness? Can a valkyrie learn to run with the pack?

Audio Lover’s Review


Most of the time, I just buy Kristen painter books, I don’t even read the book jacket! This is no exception! I’m looking at it now, to verify I don’t inadvertently give something away. 
Since The Vampires Fake FiancĂ©, I’ve been intrigued by Deputy Blythe. Seeing her relationship with her sister and that dynamic make me want to see her fall and I couldn’t wait to see Painter write it. 
With a mix of mystery and hesitancy, Ms Painter delivers a tale that intrigued me from the opening chapter. The attraction that is implied in the begging is overt and, really, it’s just adorable. 
Titus and Jenna create a cute couple. The growth and understanding between the two in their insane and forced situation is perfectly done. The tension and growing passion between them is just right. Their restraint is more than I can handle.
