This is why there s a hot, knife throwing guy who oozes male sexuality, but we find out he s PRETTY BIG SPOILER BECAUSE I DIDN T SEE IT COMING don t click if you don t want to know view spoiler A VIRGIN hide spoiler.Oh, dear lord I have just died and gone to my happy place.It s time to bring back book kitty.So I didn t get the full on Sang experience However, I got the trade off of lots of super creative sexual tension, which probably works better for the in between stories.He threw a knife at her girly bits Ponder that I mean, he is a knife thrower, but stilleven a pro has to have mad skills to do that Her skirts felt oddly tight, and she opened her eyes and looked down The last knife quivered between her thighs, piercing the layers of her skirts and drawing the cloth tightly over her legs. I wish I could quote a few of the great scenes wrought with sexual tension, but I don t want to spoil the goodness.It was awesome that the woman was the aggressor in this story, completely owning her sexuality That doesn t mean by any chance that the man was a wallflower He was definitely a strong male character, with an added dash of mystery I definitely approved of Marco.People who haven t read the series if you re looking for something different, read this series I don t even know how to describe it If you took carnival people, steampunk devices, an alternate world, a lot of crazy creatures, and sexy as hell men who are a bit offbeat read they re snarky and they know it , you ll not even come close to figuring out what s going on here The books are fun and sexy, so that s about it in a nutshell Here s where I started I want to go back and re read my way through the books there s only two and the short stories that I missed in order to get the full experience I even gave the prior short story a 5 star rating, and you know that s about as rare as a person wearing a snowsuit to the beach.I will happily do a series re read if people want to join me at some point maybe Feb because I would love to see some others discover the magic of Sang This book provided from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All quotes taken from the pre published version and may be altered or omitted from the final copy.

    We have a new member to Criminy s caravan and it s Marco, the knife thrower And of course, he has quite the history That history in turn attracts a journalist that has shown up to write a book about the caravan, Jacinda It s hard to describe this series if you haven t read it It s steampunk with a wild spin on vampires who are called Bluds and they re not just people eitherthere s a whole range of Blud animals as well And the pinkies aka humans have to be extra careful of the animals We have a new member to Criminy s caravan and it s Marco, the knife thrower And of course, he has quite the history That history in turn attracts a journalist that has shown up to write a book about the caravan, Jacinda It s hard to describe this series if you haven t read it It s steampunk with a wild spin on vampires who are called Bluds and they re not just people eitherthere s a whole range of Blud animals as well And the pinkies aka humans have to be extra careful of the animals or else they will get hurt and or killed Criminy runs a caravan that travels near the pinkie towns Each book has been about someone in the caravan or involved with it somehow Back to the storyJacinda is quite unlike your regular heroine She has been on her own for awhile since her husband passed away and she knows how to take care of herselfand go after what she wants From the beginning, she has decided she wants Marco, story or not Marco has all the women fawning over him but he keeps his distance and he plays by his rules He makes no exception for Jacinda and it s funny to watch him put the brakes on when she s around and see how infuriated she gets There s a big reason why but it really caught me by surpriseI loved it though The steamy scenes are pretty good and drawn outMarco style He is very talented I m always unsure how I will feel about these books when I first start them because they are so different But soon enough, they draw me right in Some I ve lovedthan others but I always enjoy them This one was no exception It wasn t my favorite but still really good The drama in the story was pretty easy to figure out and it got wrapped up rather quickly as is prone to do being a novella But I enjoyed it especially because we got to knowabout Marco.Of course, I was happy that Criminy was in it a fair amount and he s still as saucy as ever The next book is about Demi,Wicked After Midnight , who is very close to Criminy, so I m really hopeful we will get evenof him I m also looking forward to Demi getting some much deserved happiness Favorite quotes Letitia grinned Of course Don t worry about Criminy and his threats He s just a puppy, really One eyebrow shot up as Jacinda thought about the ringmaster s fangs A puppy A wolf puppy, maybe You re just accustomed to girls I m a woman There s a difference I want to taste every inch of you and meet you a thousand ways for a thousand nights and hear you scream in my ear as you shatter under my mouth If I d known it would be that good, I might not have resisted for so long I ve gotten good at hiding my real feelings behind my smoldering good looks and wicked smile Besides, if I d made it easy for you, you wouldn t have chased me And I do like the way you chase me

    As always Dawson spins a tale that renews my love of Sang over and over again Here we find ourselves back at Criminey s Caravan, and we even get a brief glimpse of the man and Tish themselves, enough that I wondered what was going on with them Something is up But alas, it is not their story.We follow Jacinda, a journalist, who wants to write a story about life as a carnivalleo Little did she know that she would also find love Of course, we the reader know this will happen, it s the reason w As always Dawson spins a tale that renews my love of Sang over and over again Here we find ourselves back at Criminey s Caravan, and we even get a brief glimpse of the man and Tish themselves, enough that I wondered what was going on with them Something is up But alas, it is not their story.We follow Jacinda, a journalist, who wants to write a story about life as a carnivalleo Little did she know that she would also find love Of course, we the reader know this will happen, it s the reason we are here to begin with This story follows Dawson s typical format, strong female lead, sexy as hell male lead, someone has a secret, there is danger, and then we all live happily ever after But the fact that she does it in a novella, and you still feel you know the characters, is an amazing feat The twist secret in Daggerman is not one I saw coming, and it is adorable and I love it I can t say anything else, because I am afraid I will give it away.The way Dawson can transport us to Sang, no matter how long or short the story is, is a talent not many authors have She paints such a real picture of a place that is so magical that I feel like I should have a souvenir sitting on my bookshelf Oh wait, I do, her stories It s a good thing I have my passport, I plan to revisit Sang time and time again

    This novella is for the Blud series the first book in that series is Wicked as they Come I suggest that you read at least the first book before starting this novella, I highly recommend reading the first book period Criminy Stain is the fantastic antihero, imagine a Naughty Mr Darcy, he is well worth a peruse Infamous ringleader Criminy Stain loomed over me like a dark angel, she thought, fingers twitching for cold metal keys, like an incubus drawn i This novella is for the Blud series the first book in that series is Wicked as they Come I suggest that you read at least the first book before starting this novella, I highly recommend reading the first book period Criminy Stain is the fantastic antihero, imagine a Naughty Mr Darcy, he is well worth a peruse Infamous ringleader Criminy Stain loomed over me like a dark angel, she thought, fingers twitching for cold metal keys, like an incubus drawn in ink on stark white paper. That said the Damsel and the Daggerman was another fun look into Criminy s Clockwork Carnival I love the world of Blud it is full of clockworks and steampuck with an unusual selection of wildlife including bludbunnies that can tear you apart in large groups, unicorns and peacocks that hunt virgins in tandem along with some other nasty creatures Half the fun of these books is just the world that has been created.We see Criminy a few times but the majority of the story is about the journalist Jacinda writing a book on the carnival and chasing after the story of Marco the daggerman thought to have murdered his prior assistant It seems Marco does have a few secrets but the handsome daggerman isn t sharing without a priceWoman, what you don t know about me could fit into a Kraken s belly I know That s why I let you throw nine knives at me Now I get a questionThe romance buildup and flirtation is fun, and there were a few surprises I was happy to be back in the land of Sang and the mystery flushed out well If you are looking for something a little Steampunk with a fun world to it, then this series could be everything you have been looking for

    Back to Criminy s Clockwork Carnival after so long awayoh yes It is good to be back The last couple novellas and novel took place elsewhere and I loved those stories, but being back where it all started just felt like coming home Jasinda is a very determined very, very, very determined female journalist who arrives at the carnival in search of her next book She wants to write about the carnival including the stories of the individual carnies Criminy gives her permission with a few prov Back to Criminy s Clockwork Carnival after so long awayoh yes It is good to be back The last couple novellas and novel took place elsewhere and I loved those stories, but being back where it all started just felt like coming home Jasinda is a very determined very, very, very determined female journalist who arrives at the carnival in search of her next book She wants to write about the carnival including the stories of the individual carnies Criminy gives her permission with a few provisions It is not long before Jasinda scents out that the biggest story of all is that of the dangerous knife thrower, Marco Rumors run rife including the one that he is a murderer More determined than ever, she sets out to wrest his story from him even if it means using seduction.However, it seems that the only one being seduced is Jasinda Marco agrees to answer her questions one at a time if she lets him use her as his assistant to practice his knife throwing.Jasinda slowly gets her story and slowly works her wiles on the sensual dagger wielder, but he won t give in completely and she can t figure out why But unbeknownst to them both, someone else watches and waits.This was short, but it was packed full of all sorts of goodness There are of course the characters and world of Sang, the plot with its mystery and passion that had me hooked and just the atmosphere that gets written into these books that I can t explain The story is told all from Jasinda s point of view, but she encountered many of the carnival characters from early stories which was really fun Jasinda was a well written character and she was definitely the catalyst in this book She is one strong, capable woman, but I can t say I was a fan of hers at first After a while I did end up finding her adventures fun There was a self absorption in her that turned me off a bit I let it fly because there wasto her than just that, but she really had the attitude that she owned Marco s mysterious story so he had to tell it Jasinda s determination and need for control bled into the relationship too Because Marco was aloof and hard to get and he was the hottest thing she had ever seen then that she was sampling some of tall, dark and good with knives Jasinda planned out her seduction Then she learns that not every man is like her late husband who fell for her and the many pretty young men since who she lets scratch her itch She went into it thinking she had the experience, the maturity and the upper hand only to discover that her willpower broke whenever Marco wanted it too He played her own sensual nature against her and even as I got caught up in the seduction I also laughed at how she found herself frustrated and learning to play by his rules.The story was a set up in a way for the novel that follows and that was fine I definitely look forward to that Honestly, my only niggle was the abrupt ending Everything was finished so that s not the problem It was just me loving it and not wanting to see it go With this series, its always , please, .Lovers of the Blud series don t want to miss this one and those who enjoy paranormal steampunk romances should hustle to start this series Knock your socks off.My thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

    Since Tish arrived in Sang in Wicked as They Come, sexy ringmaster Criminy Stain has been off the market so to speak With Criminy unavailable, the caravan has been lacking something a lusciously hot man to drool over However, in The Damsel and the Daggerman, Delilah S Dawson gives the carnivalleros and readers a dark, new, mysterious, violet eyed man to swoon about Enter Marco Taresque Handsome, deadly, and mysterious He s the perfect man for all the girls fantasies, especially starry Since Tish arrived in Sang in Wicked as They Come, sexy ringmaster Criminy Stain has been off the market so to speak With Criminy unavailable, the caravan has been lacking something a lusciously hot man to drool over However, in The Damsel and the Daggerman, Delilah S Dawson gives the carnivalleros and readers a dark, new, mysterious, violet eyed man to swoon about Enter Marco Taresque Handsome, deadly, and mysterious He s the perfect man for all the girls fantasies, especially starry eyed contortionist Demi Ward But where did he come from Why did he wander in off the moors Is he really as dangerous as he seems Fierce witted and ruthless reporter Jacinda Harville arrives in the night with an offer that Criminy simply can t refuse But what does the reporter really want Is she documenting the stories of the caravan workers as she claims or is there something else she is after What will become of her and the dangerous daggerman Will she getthan she bargained for All these questions andare answered in this exciting and steamy novella The Damsel and the Daggerman is a bittersweet story to read As many readers know, Wicked After Midnight releasing Jan 28 is the last in the Blud series The Damsel and the Daggerman gives readers a succulent appetizer of Dawson s excellent writing, but it also is overshadowed with a sense at least for me of sadness Dawson has written Criminy s caravan so well that it seems to go on even when the story stops, so it is sad to read knowing that the stories are soon coming to an end Dawson does an amazing job of letting readers say goodbye in this novella, though Tish and Criminy make appearances along with Imogen and Mr Murdoch Wicked as She Wants took readers on a fantastic ride with Casper and Ahnastasia, but The Damsel and the Daggerman brought us back home to the caravan I tip my hat to Delilah S Dawson for her imaginative stories and intriguing plots I don t like saying goodbye, but I can t wait to read Wicked After Midnight either

    Genre Steampunk, Romance Rating 3.5 4 My Thoughts Journalist and adventurer Jacinda Harville is on a mission Her mission is to unveil the mysterious, aloof, disarming, and dangerous knife thrower Marco Taresque while proving that he is not the bad man people are saying he is She s also trying to do an expose on Criminy Stain s Clockwork Caravan which includes Lady Letitia, Demi Ward, Cherie, Emerlie, Madam Morpho, and Mr Murdoch surprisingly with his and Tish s permission I m happy to say Genre Steampunk, Romance Rating 3.5 4 My Thoughts Journalist and adventurer Jacinda Harville is on a mission Her mission is to unveil the mysterious, aloof, disarming, and dangerous knife thrower Marco Taresque while proving that he is not the bad man people are saying he is She s also trying to do an expose on Criminy Stain s Clockwork Caravan which includes Lady Letitia, Demi Ward, Cherie, Emerlie, Madam Morpho, and Mr Murdoch surprisingly with his and Tish s permission I m happy to say that almost all of this story takes place within Criminy s caravan after spending several novels in the city.Once again, Dawson writes a story about a strong female lead character in Jacinda, who meets and disarms the bad boy Marco, who has kept everyone at arms length and away from his heart There is sizzling passion, and enough romance and sex to keep the romance lovers among us happy Jacinda is not a weak character by any means She s traveled the world, she s trained to defend herself against anything, and she bull rushes Marco into trusting her with his darkest secret The Damsel and the Daggerman can be read as a standalone, but I would say that you would be in a great position to read this book, and then Wicked After Midnight when it releases later this month January 28, 2014 since part of the story features contortionist and stranger Demi Ward I would also highly recommend that you pick up Wicked as They Come if you haven t already, and begin your journey to the land of Sangland where bludbunnies love nipping on Pinky s uncovered skin.Note I am also saddened to hear that Wicked After Midnight may be the last book in this series if sales don t pick up and people ignore this awesome series I sincerely hope that people start spreading the word about Dawson s Sang word so that they too can enjoy Criminy and crew 08 19 2013 Recvd via Edelweiss Pocket StarPublished January 6th 2014 by Pocket Star
