A great NFU story! A good romance with a little adventure thrown in but in the end a good love story.

The Falcon Finds His Mate by Candace Colt

I really enjoyed this book. The author is great at writing. I wish there had been more about Jess's ring and how it masked her ability. I can't remember that detail. Of course, that doesn't mean it's not there. I may have just not remembered. I also wish there would've been more detail about the sanctuary. It took me a minute to understand what it was. I would love for this author to write another book about the different creatures in the sanctuary. I did

While this was a good story, I liked it less than most of the rest of the Nocturne Falls Universe books. I didn't find Jess or Ryan very interesting although I wanted to know more about them and their abilities. I LOVED Echo and her cat and would love to read their backstory! I want to know more about the magical creatures in the Sanctuary...and what did Jess' college friends think about their visit to the nightclub? The author touched on a lot of interesting points but didn't develop the ones I ...more

I loved this story. The story is about Ryan, a falcon shifter, and Jess, a girl from a family of clairvoyants. As with many of the NFU books, we get treated to new characters from new species, which provides for a very entertaining read. the author did a great job of weaving the details of the paranormal traits of these two characters in the story. I especially liked the way that Connor's character revels itself the further along that the story goes. Solange, Ryan's mother, is quite the....well ...more

* I received an ebook from the author, but that in no way affects my review or opinions. *

This was one of my favorite shorts about Nocturne Falls so far! I love Nocturne Falls, the characters, the celebration of Halloween, and most importantly the excitement that is always in play here! This was my first book by author Candace Colt, but it won't be my last! I loved her writing style, her seamless flow from chapter to chapter and her descriptions of the swoon worthy men...I mean falcons.

While I liked this book, I didn't love it as much as the other Nocturne Falls Universe books. I found this one slow and hard to get into. I wish I had seen more of Jess's ability and the story seemed to end unfinished.

The Falcon Finds His Mate by Candice Colt

A Nocturne Falls Universe kindle world novella where Halloween is celebrated year round so paranormal activity is the tourist draw.
A shifter and clairvoyant are drawn to each other in this story.

“Gypsum jacked up mercy.” A favorite saying of the heroine whom I found to be indecisive. She hasn't used her gifts in years because they made her sick in the past. She wants out of Nocturne Falls.
I actually like the hero but also felt bad for him. His mother is

I thought this was a great fit for the Nocturne Falls series! Nothing really sinister going on, no evil being trying to destroy someone. Just a mother who thinks she knows what's best for her son, like all mothers do.

The strength of this story is on the interesting spins the author puts on the main characters. It’s nice to see a desirable male lead that doesn’t shift into the usual large beasts (wolf, bear, panther, etc.) and doesn’t follow the typical alpha male formula. Likewise the female lead is fantastic addition to the exploration of paranormals in the NF Universe in that she is at odds were her unique qualities to the point of repressing them. Lastly, Jess’ eccentric, free spirited grandmother is a fa ...more

Good book about a falcon shifter in my favorite setting, Nocturne Falls. 365 24/7 Halloween and those aren't just costumes, real supernaturals hide in plain sight. Pretty good story, dragged a little bit, but overall still a recommended read. Enjoy!

I love the Nocturne Falls Universe. I love meeting all the quirky residents that live in Nocturne Falls. I liked the story but found it a little hard to follow, and it seemed to jump around. I liked the main characters Ryan a Falcon shifter and Jess a psychic. I would be interested in reading more about them.

This book started off a little slow but loved how everything took shape and finished. I wouldn't change anything about it especially since it made "human" problems "shifter" problems.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Now… This is the best Nocturne Falls Universe book yet. Well, the first one I gave 5-star review that is.

The story fit right in the Nocturne Falls universe. The characters were beautifully built. We got to know the main characters, the supporting ones, and all in between. Of course, some of the original casts were there as well.

The Falcon Finds His Mate by Candace Colt is a story in the Nocturne Falls Universe written by Kristen Painter.

Colt's Falcon is a lot of fun. Falcon shifters!!

Solange Ford, Momma Falcon, is afraid the unsuitable non-shifter, Jess who was in love with her younger son, Connor in high school will renew her affections, and sends her elder son, Ryan to intercept. Except, Ryan falls in love with the oh-so-innapropriate Jessica. Add some drama to her life, and this is a ride you won't soon forget.

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author in return for my honest review.

The Falcon Finds His Mate, by Candace Colt, is another entry into the Nocturne Falls Universe series. Ms. Colt does a fine job of matching the 'tone' of the universe created by Kristen Painter, and the characters she's created are multidimensional and well fleshed out. I don't include spoilers in my reviews but I will say there are a few unexpected turns in the plot that I enjoyed. The plot flows well and the

Candace's addition to the Nocturne Falls Universe is a wonderful story that fits right into Kristen's universe. I loved how well flushed out her characters were, and that she didn't take the easy way out of any of the situations her characters got into. You have to wait until the very end to find out what our characters decide. Great writing and fun characters. I didn't feel that this book was out of place in the Nocturne Falls Universe. I enjoyed this book completely. This is probably one of my ...more

This was a nice story but it left me wondering. It did not feel finished. In general, first half is beautifully written and consistent, and second seems a bit like the writer lost herself. Main characters are very lovable and their interactions are mostly. Jess is a sort of psychic and Ryan is a falcon shifter. New breed in Nocturne Falls, which is always welcome. There are some side characters which could have been more developed, in my opinion, Echo, the grandmother and Crealde, the weird cat, ...more

I really like this short story, it fit in so well with everything Kristen Painter has written. I liked Candace Colt's writing style and I'll be checking out more of her books! I really liked this story, her characters are believable and interesting. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

Jess is home until she can find another job and is helping her grandmother, Echo. Whilst she is home she is doing repairs to the house and has been preparing the stage for the upcoming showcase. Ryan is a falcon, from a rich family. He's also an artist and his mother has volunteered him to help on the preparations for the stage.

Jess struggles with her gifts, she chooses to block her powers rather than use them. Ryan is expected to settle down with a nice falcon female and produce pure blooded f

By far my favorite of the nocturnal falls books by the new author. It is so true to the originals and so captivating that it leaves you wanting more. I am now going to look into her other ones.

I was provided a complementary copy by the author / publisher, but this in no way influenced my thoughts of opinions
Ryan is trying to woo Jess
His mother, on the other hand, does not approve of the match + tries to sabotage the relationship.
I am glad that love wins in the end.
They are good together.
Great ending!

This is a great book; this book is part of the Nocturne Falls Universe and is written by Candace Colt. The Nocturne Falls series is written by Kristen Painter and I was so happy that these new books by new authors were asked to write a story in the town. Nocturne Falls is a town that celebrates Halloween every day of the year and also a place that paranormal’s can live and not have to hide what they really are.

Having read and loved the Nocturne Falls series by Kristen Painter, I thought I'd dive into the Nocturne Falls Universe books by her esteemed guest authors.

In that vein, I got this one. It was overall an ok read. It had an interesting plot with ok characters. Of course, it goes without saying that I love the setting of Nocturne Falls.

I couldn't get into this book as much as with other Universe additions. This one seemed to be a very slow burner and seemed to drag quite a bit. I felt that someti

This is absolutely the worst, most whisy-washy "heroine" I have every seen.

She wants the younger brother, she wants the older brother.... She doesn't feel as if the magical community accepts her, she refuses to use her magical abilities. .

Absolutely fantastic read, definitely like the others in that it totally keeps to the Nocturne Falls spirit pardon the pun, but I honestly loved this book very much.

Adore our heroine and hero very much though could cheerfully slap a certain amount n character (love never runs smooth at first with outside influences butting in) but seriously I adored this story it's fantastic and very much worth reading.

Thank you Candace for writing it xxx

Jess lives with her grandmother who is called Echo Stargazer who is psychic and reads cards. In high school Jess dated Connor Ford but his mother broke them up. She is worried about seeing him because of her crush but ends up liking his brother Ryan. This was not one of my favorites of the Nocturne Universe.

I enjoyed Jess and Ryan's story, but I did struggle with the reason for her fear of his shifted form. The bachelor auction was quite fun to read about and made the perfect way for Jess and Ryan to re-connect.
