The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance was everything that Blud fans have come to expect from this series. It's a story that immediately sucks you in with its interesting characters, original world building, and sweet romance that leads to smokin' hot sex. And this time, instead of a gypsy bludman in a top hat or a mysterious mechanist, we're treated to an animal-loving fireman in a kilt.

The story features a delightful woman named Frannie Pleasance who lives a sheltered life tending to animals in her Needful Creatures pet shop.

Frannie meets Casper Sterling, a character we are first introduced to in "Wicked As They Come". He's found face down in an alley stinking of red wine and eventually vomit. Frannie, having a weak spot for lost things and seeing a resemblance to her late brother Bertram, allows Casper to rent a room in her home.

Shortly after Casper's arrival, a fire ignites in Frannie's bedroom and this is when she meets Thom Maccallan, the smokin' hot fireman with a big heart and a lovely Scottish accent.

Despite Frannie's reservations about allowing anyone to get too close, she finds herself caring for Thom and for the first time in a long time, she's no longer satisfied with being alone.

Thom becomes protective of Frannie and when he discovers that her life is in danger, he offers to stay with her in an attempt to keep her safe. Frannie finds herself sharing her secrets, stories about her past, and eventually sharing her heart.

Blud fans won't be disappointed in this series' second novella and will be pleased to learn that Dawson is treating us to another short story, The Three Lives of Lydia, in the Carniepunk anthology that releases this July.

In this next installment to the Blud world, we as readers get another introduction to Casper Sterling. Casper made a brief, but vital introduction in the first book, Wicked As They Come, and as we gear up with excitement, over his soon to be released book, Wicked As She Wants, we get a brief look at his life in Paris as a famous musician, and the unlikely heroin who saves him and takes him into her home. Although Casper is part of this story, this story is less about him and more about the quiet, but cunning female lead, Frannie.

Frannie is a lovely pet shop owner, catering to the mostly rich people of Paris. She leads a quiet life and mostly keeps to herself and her animals, but all that changes within days, as she meets not one, but two men who vie for her attention. Casper is one of those men, as she stumbles across him one day, laying in the street, nearly dead. She rescues him, and offers him a place to stay. Next, to enter her life is the hulking, uber sexy Scottish, kilt wearing fireman (can you picture him, now?) Sweet and gentle, he is the complete opposite of the crass Casper, but let me clear one thing up for you, this really isn't a love triangle. Frannie has her favorite, as the sparks are inevitable, but that doesn't stop either one of them from trying to persuade her, and win her over, but life for Frannie becomes more, and more dangerous and her life is in danger since these two have walked into her life. One must wonder if it's because of her letting these men into her life, or if there is a sinister man from her past who has come back to enact revenge.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Aloha - Michelle L. Olson:

The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance was another great story by Delilah Dawson.

While slightly different from the 'usual' Sang world, it was still chock full of wonderful characters, mystery, and romance.

I'm assuming that even though 'technically' this was Frannie and Thom's story, it will serve as a necessary segue for Wicked As She Wants, Casper's full-length story (Blud book #2), given the focus on Casper's character in this novella.

I'm hoping for, and expecting, a great next book, because there are definitely some secrets to be unveiled where he is concerned, as well as some redeeming to be done!

LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Peculiar Peta of Miss Pleasance 4 Skulls. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming full length novel!

The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance (Blud #1.6) by Delilah S. Dawson. To Casper, she was an angel, standing before him in the glow of the over laden sky. It was her kindness, her humanity that would be her greatest cost. Frannie found him in the alley, but despite all her resolution, her bravery, and her love, she would be hard pressed to save him. To Thom it started out with a fire, and ended with her loving her savior, her secrets she would finally learn to share. This story has a great premise, and a deep and rich mythology, Bludrats, Bludcats, Bludmen, and Daimons haunt the streets of London, with its Steampunk atmosphere and its lonely back streets, alleys, and shops. I am interested in reading more by this enrapturing author.

*copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

This novella is possibly the sweetest and most wholesome of the three. Frannie Pleasance is a pet shop owner and a compassionate one at that. One day she chanced upon a stranger who resembles a lot like her dead brother. This instantly endeared said stranger to her which happened to be a infamous pianist, Casper Sterling. Soon after, a few accidents befell Frannie, one of which is an attempted arson, and this is how she met the dashing and ruggedly handsome Scottish fireman Thom Maccallan.

These two had an instant connection and Frannie's slew of accidents made Thom very protective of her. Turns out that the assassination attempt was intended for someone else! The mystery was exciting and the attempts inventive what with harmless kittens turned blud suckers or Frannie turning into an archery target. Nevertheless, this fortified her bond with Thom and their love story is quite sweet actually. Both have a tragic past in love which makes THE PECULIAR PETS OF MISS PLEASANCE some sort of a second-chance-in-love kind of story.

My only regret is Casper Sterling. I first met him in Wicked As They Come and I never realized how messed up this boy is. I'm hoping he'll get his HEA soon because this dude is in serious need of redemption!
