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.

Another quickie read, The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance takes back to Delilah S. Dawson's Sangland! Here we meet pet shop owner Frannie and how she stumbles upon a druken Casper Sterling. He resembles his departed brother, so she takes pity on him and brings him home with her. It's also home to her pet shop where she sells exotic animals to Sangland. Basically, she sells pets we'd see in our world here, Corgis, birds, kittens, reptiles...you name it!

But suddenly one night her shop is caught on fire and it's thanks to the fire brigade that it is rescued and no one was hurt. That's when she meets Thom, a kilt wearing firefighter--but the kilt's just for off duty! They definitely have one of those slow building romances that I just love ever so much! And to see that in a novella was very nice!

While Thom and Frannie try to take a go at a slow romance, we learn many things. Such as Casper is also interested in wooing Frannie, but there just isn't a spark there--luckily I know Casper's fate having read his book already! Then there are the many attacks on Frannie's life. Plus Frannie has her own secret, one that she holds close to her heart and if anyone were to learn of it, she would lose everything dear to her.

Another gripping tale in Sangland where bludbunnies and bludrats run rapid! This was another quick and fun read that I highly recommend! We basically get to see what Casper was up to before he opened a particular trunk in Wicked as She Wants!

Overall Rating 4/5 stars

In this latest installment of the Blud series, the scene shifts away from Criminy's Carnival to follow a new character in London. It takes place after the first book, Wicked as They Come, but before the upcoming novel Wicked As She Wants. Though the main character is a woman from London, it does offer the story of what happens with Caspar after he leaves the Carnival so it is important to read it in order.

Alone after the deaths of the rest of her family and the poor treatment from her ex-fiance, Frannie Pleasance runs the family pet shop in London both because she loves the animals, but because she wishes to preserve her family heritage. One night on the way home from retrieving some kittens for her shop, she encounters a man face down looking like he's dead in a back alley. He's dressed like someone with affluence and he turns out to be just concussed and not dead. He also turns out to be in the spitting image of her dead brother. She takes pity on him by offering him a place to stay when she sees that he has vomited on himself, was robbed and has been tossed out of his lodgings. He turns out to be Caspar Sterling a famous musician.

Shortly after bringing Caspar home, there is a fire in Frannie's bedroom that the fire brigade quickly puts out. She is drawn to one of the dashing firemen, Thom McCallan. He is drawn to her too and returns the next day to help right her room and search for some of her pet birds that she released during the fire. Frannie now has the big, bluff warmhearted Thom's interest as well as the flirtatious attentions of Caspar after going years deliberately seeking to go unnoticed. Someone else has noticed her too because the attempts on her life just keep coming. Yes, she is keeping a secret, but its nothing anyone would kill her for.
