BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY, Review - Masquerade by Dahlia Donovan

Masquerade by Dahlia Donovan
An Ivy short from the Blackbird Series

As the months have gone by since Ivy and her wolves bonded, hints have continually been

dropped about moving in together and marriage. It's unfortunate then that the romantic proposal which Ivy had hoped for never quite arrived. Her two alpha wolves instead merely demand her hand in marriage.

Suitably unimpressed, Ivy tells her gits to bugger off and hops on a private jet for a swanky
masked ball in Monte Carlo with Alicia, Alim and Dane.

Can Steve and Gareth find the right words to win the yes from her lips?

You just never know who or what you'll find at a masquerade.

Following the wolves DEMAND,yes, you read right, DEMAND that she marry them, Ivy runs to Monte Carlo for a ball with Alicia and Alim, much the Gareth and Steve's annoyance. Ivy is unprepared for the longing she feels at having leaving them behind, if only for a short time. When the wolves arrive in Monte Carlo, and step up to the plate, will Ivy say yes??

Oh how I love thee, Ms Donovan! And thy pack!

Steve and Gareth are, well, Steve and Gareth! They love Ivy, they do, they just can't quite get their head round this romance lark! With some prodding from Darren, Natasha, and Josh, they do ASK, and when they do?? its beautiful, I'm not giving details, but its done in a way only wolves can do it!

We get a little, and I mean teeny tiny bit of Darren and Nastasha, some Dane and Jezza, and Alicia has her own moment that leads into, not quite the next book, but it leads into her story soon. With whom?? not saying!

Its only a short burst, 31 pages, but just enough to keep you hanging on til the next book, which will be soon, I hope!

Donovan has a very British sense of humour, for an American, and I get her, I really do! I so love the way that humour comes across, and I'm sorry if you dont get it, you really are missing a treat!

I was given the opportunity to beta read this little ditty, and I thank Dahlia for that. This is NOT a beta review, I purchased the book, since I love them so much!

“You look stunned.” Ivy shot him an amused smile. She glanced between the two alphas. “I’ll be in Monte-Carlo for a few days. Alim has his entire security team with him, so I’ll be perfectly safe. I’ve got my mobile with me. There is literally no reason on Earth I can imagine the two of you needing to pop up at this ball, so why don’t you do something more useful, like talk to each other? Figure out a way to fix the problem you gits created.”


With a slow shake of her head, Ivy silenced Steve’s argument. She pressed soft kisses on both of their cheeks before walking gracefully away, placing her hand lightly on Alim’s arm to let him escort her from the apartment. They heard her quiet laughter when two low growls rumbled from both of the wolves at the same time. 

Gareth glanced over at his partner with a groan. “We’re bloody fools.”
