Bella wants to find a new career without such an annoying and smelly partner. But, will the price be too high? Or will she find what she’s always been looking for?


From the name, I kind of figured that this short story would have something to do with circuses and the night. But that was really my only hint (that, and I knew it would have vampirific romance… it’s in a book of vampire romance). Yet, this still somehow surprised me. It wasn’t quite what I expected, but yet everything that I was anticipating all at the same time. Which, of course, made it thoroughly enjoyable.

I really loved the ending of this story. Actually, I enjoyed the entire adventure, but the ending surprised me a little. Instead of being a clean cut, she falls in love with a vampire and runs off into the night with him, it has a little bump in the road. And although there is still a sense of happily ever after… it’s not one that is really that complete end to a journey… it gives a sense of further issues, complications and intrigue.
