She Was All He Wanted

From the back:

Joe Harper had the circus in his blood. And he was content to be the advance man for Bartow Shows until sultry, conniving Norma Donald made him her protege, Her. husband, Tim, managed the circus, but Norma had other ideas. And Joe was going to help her.

In love with aerialist Yselle Obello, he learned too late that Norma was a tramp with passion and power on her mind. She held all the winning cards. And she was prepared to use them to get every evil thing she wanted.
