Interview with Masquerade author Dahlia Donovan


Masquerade by Dahlia Donovan...

 

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 theromantic 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.


An Interview with Dahlia Donovan by Kolleen

1.  Who is your favourite character you have written? Why?

Oh, that’s a painful question. I’m going to have angry characters yelling in my head. Truthfully? Of all the women in the series, Ivy is probably still my favourite because she was the first, Elaine is a close second.  She’s close to my heart for a variety of reasons, but mostly because I understand her social awkwardness.

 

Of the men in the series, Steve will likely always be at the top of my list.  He ticks off all the boxes of my ideal man.  He’s a little older than the rest.  He’s all alpha male and takes things seriously, but still indulges in the little things as well.


2. What came first when you started the Blackbird Series, the story or the characters?

Hmm. That’s tricky.  The idea of the story and Ivy, herself, came at about the same time.  


3. Where do you draw your inspiration? How do you "set the mood" for a writing session?

I draw inspiration from everywhere. It really depends on which characters I’m writing.  For Ivy, I listened to a lot of jazz music and watched a lot of Strike Back. 


4. Will we be seeing more from these characters or are you working on something new?

Oh yes.  We’ll be seeing a lot more from the Blackbird Pack.  I’m hoping at the end to have six to seven books in the series.


5. What was the last book you read that amazed you? 

I can’t tell you that because I was beta-reading for a friend. ;)

 I’ve been reading Mary Balogh’s Survivor Club series.  It’s probably the most recent published books which I’ve read and found I loved quite a bit, enough to re-read them at the very least.


Thank you for your time Dahlia!

Cover Reveal: FREAKSHOW by Jaden Wilkes


If you haven't been introduced to the awesome Jaden Wilkes do so, she writes crazy ass stories you won't forget! FREAK SHOW is her newest!
Releases December 2014... 
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23307464-freakshow

Maisy York is a freak. An oddball. One of the outliers who clings desperately to the golden mean in a futile attempt to feel normal. Born with congenital analgesia, she lacks the ability to feel pain, but this seems to mean she's unable to feel pleasure as well.

Unemployed, betrayed, and left with no other options, Maisy joins Cirque des Curiosit├ęs, a traveling circus with a heavy emphasis on the strange and exotic in order to appease the infinite curiosity of the peanut-crunching crowds.

Intending to work the concession or sell tickets, her unique oddity is quickly discovered and rockets her to the front of the house, the centre ring, the main event. 

And of course there is a man. There's always a man. A Fire Breather named Cairo with the darkest eyes and most beautiful lips she's ever seen. She's swept up in his intoxicating attention, his muscled arms, his tattoos, his beard and thick dark hair...

In order to prove she's incapable of falling in love with Cairo, she accepts his dangerously seductive father's offer to join After Dark, the erotic after hours version of the Cirque. There, her unique condition once again makes her a star, seemingly the ultimate masochist with no end to what she can handle.

But nothing in life is what it seems, and in a world built on illusion and deception, this lesson hits home with a blunt force.

When girls start to disappear from After Dark, Maisy is determined to find out what happened to them. Will she be able to uncover the truth in a world built on lies? Will her own life be put in danger in her relentless quest to sake her curiosity? And will she ever discover the truth inside herself and find a way to feel or will it be too late?

Blogger Black Out? No thanks.


#DramaFreeZone
A blogger black out... For real?! SmMFh...

I prefer to leave the drama whores to their drama whoring and the haters to their hating... 
There will be no black out up in here.

The whole reason I blog is to support Authors, not draw some line in the sand separating us & them. I refuse to grab a pitch fork and linch someone when whatever went down has NOTHING to do with me or my blog. I don't know all the drama but I know that I don't post bad reviews because it's rarely done in good taste and almost always makes you sound like an opinionated bitch. Seriously if you hated it that ONE STAR rating speaks volumes. 

I don't condone what Kathleen Hale did nor do I understand why she did it, wanna know a secret...

It doesn't matter cuz it's none of our fucking business LOL 

So I will keep spreading the LOVE not the hate. loving books and authors.

The Devil Behind Me by Evangelene

Holy mother effing crap... Let me attempt to be slightly intelligent as I freak out about The Devil Trilogy by Evangelene...

Picture the biggest, richest asshole ever, then picture a poor desperate girl who completely hates him but will do anything to help her family... Now make them fake being a couple.
It was sad and heart breaking they way they hated each other, the things they said & did was insane! I had tears in my eyes for so much of this series. The desperation and pain these two people endure. GOD!!!! It's like Fifty sheets meets Against all odds... Beautiful and completely fricking broken.
 I loved it but it HURT.
Book one Devil Behind Me is out NOW. 
Book two Husband Beside Me, I just beta read and should be out in November 2014. Insanely good!
