When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman had cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, cursiously awaits. At Criminy's electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she's coming to love?

i'm actually surprised how much I liked this book! i expected a run-of-the-mill paranormal romance and though it has some typical pr tropes in it, it is also a very engaging fantasy-adventure story.
i especially liked the world-building and it took a slightly different approach to vampirism. also i liked the steampunk elements! thanks to the good writing the world was described very imaginative without being to wordy.

tbh i skipped through the sex scenes. being a paranormal romance there obviously had to be some steamy stuff in the book, but i found that it didn't add anything to the story.

Have to laugh as this is not my normal reading. Since VintageVanguard said the same thing I’ll give it a try. I was thinking it was going to be a mystery.
