The Siren Saves the Billionaire by Kristen Painter

 
"Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 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 and all."

 


 
I love Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls series. There's nothing dark in these books. Each paranormal romance has fun magic, lots of humor, and a happy ending. The town is populated with a few humans and many vampires, werewolves, witches, gargoyles, Fae, and even a dragon. Undrea Seeley is a mermaid. She creates custom aquariums for people and she's just been hired to install a very large fish tank in tech billionaire Ethan Edmond's new house. 

She's attracted to Ethan right away, but that might be because of her mer-magic and an accidental kiss they share. After all, Ethan has a girlfriend (who claims to be his fiancèe), and Nina is not going to let Ethan go without a fight. She'll even use her own dark magic to keep him. But Undrea is determined to save Ethan from Nina...and protect him from her own magic, too. She'll just need a little help from Ethan's hairless cat, Bowie, and a few witch friends in order to do it. 

This entertaining paranormal romance is light-hearted, magical fun. I really liked Undrea and all her mermaid rules. Ethan and his cute cat were both great, too. And I like how the supernatural residents of Nocturne Falls always come together to help out one of their own. I think my favorite Painter novels are still The Vampire's Fake Fiancee, The Werewolf Dates the Deputy, and The Werewolf Meets His Match, but The Siren Saves the Billionaire is a very charming and enjoyable read, too. 

Happy Reading!

    1. And the first book is probably my least favorite book of the bunch. The later books (that I've read) have all been better than the first. :)

    1. This series definitely fits that! And the nice thing is you don't have to read this series in order. You can pick and choose which books sound best to you.

    1. The town is a lot of fun, kind of like supernatural Disneyland, but without all the rides.

  11. Nocturne Falls itself sounds like so much fun -- I don't think I have ever read a book where the humans are in the minority in a town like this!

    This sounds like a great read for the season and especially if you want something with some of the spooky elements but not too scary.

    1. I'd love to spend a seek in Nocturne Falls just for the yummy food and all the fun costumed inhabitants. And this is a great supernatural series that offers humor, magic and romance without all the scares.

  14. I know what you mean. I too enjoy witches,vampires etc set in an urban setting. Right now I am contemplating a series by Madelyn Alt about a young woman who gets a job at an antique store and discovers it's owned by a witch, a good Witch. I will also put Kristen Painter on my list. I love the idea of a town celebrating Haloween all year round!
