    In this novella we revisit our first couple, Delaney and Hugh. It was so great to see them again and sweet to see Hugh’s devotion for Delaney hasn’t waned even a tiny bit. They’re still in love and this time, they’re tackling a Valentine’s Day bake off. This was quick, sweet and revealed something that warmed my heart right up. A definite must read for fans of this series.

    Perfect little story to enjoy on Valentine's Day. It was cute and romantic and a nice follow up on Delaney and Hugh's story. Too bad we didn't get to see DeDe's reaction to the news.

    Jessica (a GREAT read)

    The Vampire’s Valentine Surprise was yet another quick little read in the amazing world of Nocturne Falls written by Kristen Painter! As you may already know, I ADORE this series, despite being vastly behind!! LOL! Nocturne Falls is definitely up there in my top bookish worlds I’d want to live in, I’d say right up there after Hogwarts! In this one we see Delaney preparing for the Nocturne Falls’ Valentine’s Day Bake-Off.

As you may already know, I ADORE this series, despite being vastly behind!! LOL! Nocturne Falls is definitely up there in my top bookish worlds I’d want to live in, I’d say right up there after Hogwarts! In this one we see Delaney preparing for the Nocturne Falls’ Valentine’s Day Bake-Off. She’s been driving her husband Hugh a wee bit crazy with all the sugar and taste testing, but once the big day finally arrives, trouble is soon to follow. Delaney takes ill with a few moments of baking. It’s looking very likely that someone may have poisoned her coffee drink or perhaps put in a nasty spell. And when Delaney previously sees her arch-nemesis and competitor leaving her tent, her suspicions are aroused. She quickly puts Hugh on the case, as she’s kind of busy trying to win the bake-off in all three categories. I love Delaney’s determination to finish a bake-off when she very well might be poisoned. When we learn the truth behind the matter it’s nothing short of shocking!! Reading this little story only reminded me once again why I adore this series so much! It’s just a fun little world filled with paranormal peeps! I would give anything to live in this world! Lol! If I haven’t sold you off on this series yet, I highly recommend it! It’s the prefect kind of read for paranormal lovers who enjoy a bit of mystery as well! Overall Rating 5/5 stars

    Just Too Sweet! Hugh Ellingham definately has his hands full when his wife Delaney enters the Valintine Day Bake off. Suspicion that Icky Vicky may have tampered with Delaney's coffee adds to the. already high tensions, especially when it looks like Delaney's health is suddenly taking an inexplicable turn for the worse. Oh, but are they in for a surprise, and what a surprise! Winning the baking contest is not all there is to get at stake in this years bake-off! Just Too Sweet!

    I have enjoyed this series from the very first book. Although you do get a little update on Hugh and Delaney in the later books, I always wanted to know more about them. In this book you get the update on Delaney's life since she became a vampire and how she and Hugh are doing. Spoiler Alert...They are still happily married.

    Listened to this through Audible Escape. The first couple of the series stars in this short, and it was nice to see them again (more than mentions in other books). I guessed the surprise right away, and would really like another book or short on them!

    Nocturne Falls There's No Place Like It In The World Can you imagine living in a place where it's Halloween 365 days a year? It sounds like the ultimate place to live. With cakes, cookies and chocolates on her mind Delaney prepares for Nocturne Falls holiday bake off. Everyone is her test subject. It's a miracle that no one has gone into a diabetic coma with all the sugar they've eaten. It's a short story that shows humor, the love a vampire has for his baker wife and the surprise she has for him.

    If you are reading the whole series - and I do encourage you to do that and to do it in order - this book is a bit of a followup to book one. Book One - The Vampire's Mail Order Bride is Hugh and Delaney's story, and it is a good story. This book takes place months after their marriage and gives us a glimpse into some of their life. Delaney has her candy shop and it is going well, and although she may not need to do anything, this is what she loves and she is good at it.

Delaney has her candy shop and it is going well, and although she may not need to do anything, this is what she loves and she is good at it. The Valentine's Bake Off is a big deal, and she is determined to win - it's just what she needs to really launch her mail-order chocolates. But something is up - she is not feelin herself - she's nausea, tired, dizzy and so much more. When she sees a rival in her kitchen space she is sure that she has been poisoned. When she asks Pandora, her friend and a witch to check, here is no poison, but something else turns up. This is a really quick short read - but it is fun to come back to characters that you have already read about and see what is going on. I love that - it's like becoming friends with them - you don't just et the one book and then never hear about them again. Then again in this series, previous characters are showing up in the books all the time and it is awesome!!

    Delaney Ellingham is feeling run down. But that’s not a surprise since she’s prepping to be in three different categories in the Valentine’s Day bake off. One in which her arch enemy’s daughter (who she actually likes) is also participating albeit in a different division. But is it just stress or something more sinister. This is the novella in this series that made me realize that I really just need to stop reading Painter’s interstitials; I do not like them.

    Delaney's in a tizzy about the upcoming Valentine's Day Bake-Off and poor Hugh and Stanhill have to put up with taste testing all her sugary sweets. Which doesn't sound terrible except that's A LOT of sugar. Once the bake-off starts, things take a different turn as Delaney begins to suspect a rival of trying to sabotage her chances at winning. Cute, quick, and not entirely unexpected, I'm digging the time I'm spending in Nocturne Falls. -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal Delaney's in a tizzy about the upcoming Valentine's Day Bake-Off and poor Hugh and Stanhill have to put up with taste testing all her sugary sweets.

    What a perfect little vignette! I only just found this little short story and it had me smiling from word one. By word twenty or thirty I was chuckling - and that held through to the end. This story takes us back to Hugh and Delaney Ellingham, the protagonists of the first book. Now they have obviously continued to appear throughout the series, but it’s so nice to get a little more story focused just on them. In a way it’s like stopping by to visit old friends.

    3 1/2 Cute but obvious what the surprise is. Continuation of Delaney, not a new romance like some of the shorts. Nice to see all the characters of Nocturne (view spoiler)[ We never figure out why the mother was in her booth, which was a little questioning. I thought the daughter (Molly?) should have said something about her mother trying to give her eggs. (hide spoiler)] There was no answer there and the romance is lacking. Cute story still. 3 1/2 Cute but obvious what the surprise is. Continuation of Delaney, not a new romance like some of the shorts.

    I know exciting another series by Kristen Painter, Nocturne Falls. This is book 5.5 in this series all about the supernaturals living in Nocturne Falls where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. The tourist think that everyone that looks like a werewolf, witch or vampire is in costume. The series is like the last one I read Shadowvale where each book is about a different person in Nocturne Falls.

    Epic Do I really need to say more than epic, great story, its so good to be able to carry on further with the stories of books you've already read,the characters become almost like a family when you read them, but them whoosh their gone. But not with the Nocturn Falls books. Long may the family reign and continue to expand.

    Cute short story about Delaney competing in the Nocturne Falls annual Valentine’s Day bake-off. She entered all three divisions: cakes, chocolate and cookies and is so nervous she feels sick. Warning: With all the chocolate and other sweet scenes, just reading this sweet story can give you diabetes. Fave scenes: sugar rush and giving the eggs.

    3.5 stars. This is a very short story, revisiting the first couple of the series, Hugh and Delaney. Delaney is entering the Valentine's Day Bake-Off and thought someone had done something to make her ill... but it turned out to be something else totally... Not hard to guess what.
