Ringmaster by Aurelia T. Evans

He’s the master of the ring, but he cannot master her.

Kitty has been part of Arcanium as Pretty Kitty the Bearded Lady for over fifteen years, taking care of the circus’ inhabitants—both human and demon—when the curtains close.

But she’s kept a dark secret from the rest, one that she shares with the sadistic demon known only as the Ringmaster. Though it would be a stretch to call the arrangement he and Kitty share tender, the Ringmaster finds himself curiously drawn to the kind but dark heart of Arcanium.

When Kitty convinces a long-time lover of hers from outside Arcanium to join the circus—Victor, a sweet, handsome, charming man in love with every square inch of hair on Kitty’s body—the secret between Kitty and the Ringmaster not only risks coming to light, but the strange relationship itself threatens to crumble and throw Arcanium into chaos.

Reader Advisory: This book contains horror-related violence and gore, assault and threats of sexual violence, a rough D/s relationship, sex with a well-endowed demon, multiple partners, bondage, sadomasochism (including an intense biting moment), fisting, mild breathplay, and both BDSM and non-BDSM whipping.

I really, really want to visit the Arcanium Circus. I feel like I know these characters and, of course, Kitty is my favorite. I was very excited to have a story featuring her as a main character!
The beginning of this story was relatively slow moving, but not boring in the least bit.

We get to meet one of Kitty's off-site suitors, Victor. Steaminess ensues, and we get to see a little into Kitty's persona and the abuse she's been dealt. Where Kitty has been living with a (I hate to call it) disability that the world can see, Victor has also been dealing with a chronic, terminal condition. They're able to connect on this point. Kitty may've invited Victor to Arcanium....and Victor might have considered her proposal – but you really need to read to find out what May or May Not have happened ;)

The Ringmaster also has a prominent place in this story, but again I'm not going to give it away. I will say that he's Dark, Dangerous, insanely Demonic (go figure). If you've been following this series – you NEED to read this installment. That's all I can say.

Overall, this installment of the Arcanium series was an awesome look into two well-known characters. We're treated to some humorous banter, very erotic scenes both tame and super Dark (BDSM laced), and just a touch of romance.
