 Taking place after Wicked as They Come, this original eBook features a mysterious lady and a reclusive mechanical genius who find love and danger in a traveling circus. An elusive woman arrives at Criminy’s doorstep with a steamer trunk, begging for a position in the caravan to perform her unique new act. She opens her trunk to reveal a menagerie of brilliantly colored butterflies. The woman, who calls herself Madam Morpho, is on the run from a dark past in London, where she was forced to leave her equipment behind and abscond with only her tiny performers. Playing a hunch, Criminy hires Madam Morpho on the spot. Taking her down to meet Mr. Murdoch, the reclusive talented engineer who keeps the carnival’s clockworks running, Criminy instructs them to work together to design and build a groundbreaking new circus for the butterflies. Amid the magical ambiance of the circus and the hint of danger from Madam Morpho’s pursuers, she and Mr. Murdoch soon find that their scientific collaboration has produced chemistry of a more romantic kind.
                               After reading this I find myself needing a Criminy fix!
  After reading Wicked as They come, I wanted more! I love the world of Sang! I especially love being  pulled right back into the world that Delilah Dawson has created! It was like I had never left!  And yes it really does feel like you're there! For an example when I was reading it and I actually looked up from my kindle after hearing my name being repeatedly called, it was a shock to my system that I was sitting in my living room reading instead of in Sang! It's just so dark and mysterious! I can't get enough!
 Getting back on track. This is a short story where we are introduced to new characters who are of course, who the story is about and we get to be reunited with old and familiar characters that are in the caravan! So YES!  We get to see Criminy and Tish! ( I love Criminy! Hes just so sexy!) I strongly recommend this story to anyone who has read Wicked as They Come and find themselves just as obsessed with the dark and gritty world of Sang! And if you haven't read it then I suggest checking out my review and buying it now! It's just so good! 
                                                I need more of Criminy in my life!

  5. It's crazy how fast the books start piling up! You've got some great giveaways on your blog, and I had never heard of Lydia Dare but I think I'm going to have to buy some of her books now. Historical Romance was the genre I started in and I still love it, add in the paranormal and I'm bound to be hooked! Thanks for stopping by!
