It’s not every day you meet a man at the bar, stare at him for hours, and then right when you decide to make a move, he gets up to leave. Worse, when you follow him outside, you see him completely change his appearance by shucking a wig and a button down shirt, dropping them into the nearest trash can.

When Crimson looks around to see who noticed the complete one-eighty that’s just taken place, not a single person notices or cares. When she looks back, he’s gone.

Dejected, she leaves, thinking maybe she’d hallucinated and made the whole night up.

Only, just as she passes a dark alley, she’s taken. Literally and figuratively.

That’s the night that Winston Cyrus Osborn, III walks into her life.


Crimson is the worst type of woman.

She’s curious.

And curiosity kills the cat in his line of work.

With nothing else left to lose, he’s set to rid this world of the filth that infests it. And in doing that, he’s made a lot of enemies that would like nothing better than to ruin him and every single person he cares about.

At every turn, she’s there, insinuating herself into his life. And despite his attempts to keep her at arm’s length, she blows past every single barrier he erects.

He should really stay away.

He should also make sure that she stays out of his business.

Yet, he keeps letting her in. And she keeps reminding him why he wants her to stay.


Crimson meets her match and gets more than she bargained for! I’m really enjoying Lani Lynn Vale’s quirky Welcome to the Circus series. It’s filled with a really unorthodox group of siblings that worm their way more and more into the reader’s heart with each new book and there’s always hints of danger and intrigue weaved throughout. Crimson and Winston really caught my attention. He’s secretive and she’s out to get answers … and the answers she uncovers are more than she ever would have expected.

Highly intense emotional scenes are a given with this series, but the love each sibling is finding is healing them one step at a time. I loved Winston so hard! Highly recommend this series as a whole.
