Overview

It’s no easy feat transitioning from the disciplined arena of competitive gymnastics to the artistic whirl of the Cirque du Monde. Kelsey Martin finds secret inspiration in Theo Zamora, a dark, taciturn trapezist--until his partner dies in a tragic accident and he decides to leave the circus for good.

Theo doesn’t understand why Kelsey reaches out to him, only that she compels him with her unique combination of innocence and recklessness. Before long the two are collaborating on an aerial silks act for a new production, the Cirque de Minuit. Theo’s impatience with Kelsey’s naivete is matched only by his passion for her, and the two soon become embroiled in a tempestuous, consuming romance.

But some still blame Theo for his partner’s accident, and danger wraps up the two performers as inevitably as the scarlet silk of their act. Theo and Kelsey must find a way to connect and trust one another as he leads her deeper and deeper into a dangerous world of control and desire.

    CIRQUE DU MINUIT was amazing. Annabel Joseph has such a unique and passionate voice in the BDSM romance genre, and her latest novel about performers in a French circus is a perfect example. The story was beautifully written with strong, complex characters, rich descriptions of circus life behind the curtain, and some incredibly hot and kinky scenes. When I think of the circus, BDSM doesn’t exactly come to mind, but Annabel Joseph made it work flawlessly.

    The relationship between Kelsey and Theo was intense. Kelsey has spent a lifetime as the sensible good girl type. In many ways she is naive and innocent, yet also strong, stubborn and not afraid to speak her mind. Theo is dark and dangerous, a tortured hero for sure. They come together in the wake of tragedy and form a complicated bond.

    As partners in a new aerial silks act for Cirque du Minuit, they go from teacher and student to master and slave. Theo introduces Kelsey to the world of BDSM, which includes visits to the Citadel, a fetish club for the circus’ performers. Kelsey is my favorite type of submissive. She’s fiesty and strong. She truly wants to submit, but is far from perfect. She takes her training in stride (and it was some deliciously wicked training). Theo made an irrestible dominant. There was so much more to him than he wanted others to know. He was commanding and intimidating, yet inside he had a vulnerable streak that made him very human.

    CIRQUE DU MINUIT was a breathtaking story, and I was quickly pulled into its seductive world. I would be thrilled if this was made into a series. I have a feeling there are many more stories to be told. I would highly recommend Kelsey and Theo’s love story to fans of BDSM erotic romance.

    Head into it.....

    Ummm. Well.....that too :)...........

    When i first started reading this book i had a tough time getting my head into it because when it was said that Kelsy was a former gymnast all i could think of were those tiny little gymnasts you see in compition on TV and such. All work and intense and tiny and too young and sportsminded. No play. Nothing that came close to being someone that could be good candidate (in my head anyway) for the sexual encounters that this book would be leading into.......So......i almost felt like not finishing it before i even got very far into the book. Waste of my time i thought. As Kelsey's character developed i started seeing her in different light. Not so tight laced. More mature but not too much. It worked out anyway..........You'll see. Some pretty intense stuff. A bit bizzarre in a couple of cases which i tried to overlook. I guess that's what BDSM is all abt. right? Give it a try anyway......I enjoyed it but would much rather find some BDSM stories with a Historical theme..........argggggg!!!!!!
