The last place Ivie expects to be approached by a devastatingly handsome male is in a crowded, smoky cigar bar rarely frequented by vampires—yet here he stands. Silas is flirtatious, gallant, and, above all, mysterious. Ivie is anything but. A nurse at the healer’s clinic and the daughter of a biker, Ivie is accustomed to speaking her mind. So she does. Since aristocrats rarely pick up females of her class, Ivie asks Silas just what kind of game he thinks he’s playing.
Despite her guarded exterior, Ivie surrenders to the fierce desire she feels for Silas. And yet, just as their courtship is heating up, he reveals that it cannot last, for he is bound to return to the Old Country. Their bond only deepens as they make the most of their precious time together. But when she learns the truth, Ivie must find a saving grace—before all is lost. . . .
Dearest Ivie is the latest addition to the BDB and while we never heard these two characters before, their story isn’t less profound or beautiful. What I enjoyed the most in this story, was Ivie’s reluctance to accept her emotions. At first she fought & questioned Silas’ intentions and even made herself seem as uninterested and indifferent. All the while wondering what would it be like if she let her feelings and emotions take over. It wasn’t long after they met and shared a kiss that she started to realize that maybe it wasn’t so bad to let herself go, and enjoy Silas while she could.
Without much effort but with the simplicity of just being himself, Silas slowly found the way to Ivie’s heart and their story started as a tragedy but it ended in an overwhelming burst of emotions & happiness.
Short, yet full of angst and emotions, Dearest Ivie is yet again another fantastic addition to the Blackdagger Brotherhood World. I can’t get enough, these characters were fantastic.
