When a matchmaker gets toasted at the after party, she finds the perfect wolf for her in the most unlikely of places. Of course, the last thing he wants is a mate, much less a matchmaking one.
Hugo Ferrar is one busy Hound. Acting as a messenger for his alpha, he spends more time out of New Orleans than in it. Home in the Big Easy for only three days, Hugo has a strict schedule to adhere to—celebrate his brother’s mating, eat and drink his fill, and find a lovely wolf at the masquerade for a fling.
Lesley-Anne Saucier is drunk on life and one too many hurricanes. Her masquerade is just the kind of party Delta Crescent needs, especially since they are celebrating the mating of a popular couple—a match she helped to make. Avoiding her eager fans, Lesley-Anne is bowled over by a wolf in the garden—a stunning, male, perfect for her. The moon is full, the masquerade is in full swing, can the matchmaker find her own perfect mate?

The Wolves of Willow Bend series is my absolute favorite, and this novella does not disappoint. I originally read this in an anthology, but when I saw it by itself I had to have it for my collection. This was a wonderful and vibrant glimpse into the world of Delta Crescent, which we have not yet had the pleasure to see previously. The story is relatively simple, yet magical. It felt full and not at all rushed. I absolutely loved the MCs and I cannot wait to continue the series.

While this is actually set at Valentine's Day, it is a Masquerade so hypothetically it goes with Halloween as well. Okay so maybe not, but this is where the book fell in my re-read. *SMILE*
With the packs currently in turmoil this was a welcome reprive for everyone in the Delta Crescent pack.
A Voodoo Valentine’s Ball celebrating the mating of Christopher and Rachel Ferrar done up as only their Alpha Serafina could do. One of the guests celebrating the mating of is Lesley-Anne Saucier the pack matchmaker. Now it's not what you might think. The matchmaker only scents whether a couple is a possible mate match. It's really up to them to make the choice.
As this celebration floats around her Lesley-Anne is approached by a male. Not just any male but by his scent a possible mate for her. That is until he removes his mask.
Hugo Ferrar the brother of the groom is one of Sarina's Hounds. The last thing Lesley-Anne wants is a mate who is never around and is in constant danger.
It seems Hugo is very opinionated about matchmakers and the fact his brother had gone to one.
Hugo will have to do more than just apologize for putting his foot in his mouth if he is to claim his mate.
Sweet, snarky, fun and sizzling hot. You won't want to put this one down.

This one was the perfect read for when I needed something warm and quick. I love the wolves from Hollow Bend with feeling almost like dear friends each one I get to know closer through this author with the way they are brought to life. Just cause her gift is match making does not mean it is something to be made fun of or taken lightly by others. One such Hound will make the mistake after the fact which brings chuckles when he does. This one centers around Hugo and Lesley-Anne with them also providing some heat of their own. Of course it cruised to fast and soon I was finishing with it seeming I had only just begun.
