The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance, Book #1.6 of the BLUD series
by Delilah S. Dawson
Synopsis:A lady with a penchant for pets meets a sexy fireman in this magical and saucy steampunk eNovella from the author ofWicked as They Come.
In a world ruled by blood, live pets are rare and kindness rarer still. London pet shop owner Frannie Pleasance has a mysterious way with animals and keeps her charges (and heart) locked in a veritable Eden. She thinks Casper Sterling is just another stray…until she takes in the troublesome lodger (and unwelcome suitor) and becomes the victim of a series of strange and dangerous occurrences.
When an unexplained fire threatens to destroy Frannie's carefully guarded world, firefighter Thom Maccallan is there to extinguish the blaze and help gather the lost creatures. The heat between Frannie and Thom begins to burn, but someone's still after the lady. Could it be Casper himself, or is Frannie’s new lodger just another victim of fate? Will they be able to figure out who's pursuing Frannie—and stop them—before she loses everything?
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!
