From Booklist

The sequel to The Seduction of Phaeton Black (2012) finds paranormal investigator Phaeton shanghaied and his lover, America Jones, pregnant. Alarmed at his absence, America follows Phaeton from China to London only to learn that the moonstone, a fabulous energy source, is missing. Phaeton is rumored to be the only person who can tap into the stone’s energy and make it usable. Finding the stone and retrieving it, however, create enough adventure, even for this thrill-seeking, steampunk couple. Not only is late-1890s London beset by fantastical, tentacle-wielding creatures and succubus sisters but the London of the future is slowly disintegrating. The moonstone’s power could heal both versions of the city. But malevolent supernatural forces also want the moonstone to take over the world, so Phaeton and America must work in both historical and current London to make sure the right side wins. Adventure fans, whether steampunk readers or not, will enjoy this imaginative, fast-paced romp, which includes Stone’s sage comments on how society and life have morphed over the past century. --Pat Henshaw

Format: Paperback
'The Moonstone and Miss Jones' is the second book in the interesting supernatural mystery series that is intertwined with a steamy paranormal romance. The main plot deals with Phaeton Black, a Scotland Yard detective who happens to have some paranormal abilities. He helps out with cases surrounding the occult and unexplained occurrences. By his side is America Jones, the fiery woman who has decided to help with his cases. Phaeton and America rush to London in order to help Doctor Exeter save the city from the evil Professor Lovecraft.

This novel is a fast-paced paranormal romance with a great plot. The setting is a perfect fit for the narrative - Victorian era London seems to be a plausible place for ghosts, evil professors, and general paranormal activity. The romance portion of the book was a bit of a shock to me because I normally don't read that genre, but it was definitely steamy and continued to make the tension between Phaeton and America palpable throughout the novel. The writing is incredibly well done and the characters are believably flawed and exciting to read about. The added mystery and steampunk aspects of the series only heighten the adventure and make it all the more exquisite. Fans of paranormal romance will devour this book and eagerly await the third installment in the series.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This is book 2 in the Phaeton Black, Paranormal Investigator series. You may read my review of Book 1 here: "The Seduction of Phaeton Black"

"The Moonstone and Miss Jones" doesn't begin where "The Seduction of Phaeton Black" left off. There is a short time span where we learn that Phaeton and America have been separated and Phaeton kidnapped. While hunting Phaeton down, America lands back in London and is attacked while one her way back to their room under the brothel. Phaeton mysteriously appears back in London about the same time, as well. They reunite amid strange goings-on. There is an alternate London, mechanical moonstone stealing spiders, succubi, and treachery abounds. Phaeton Black is a catalyst in a plan that requires his energy and that of the moonstone; the moonstone given to him by an ancient Egyptian Goddess. Now that the moonstone has been stolen from Dr. Exeter, it is up to Phaeton, America, and their new band of protectors to retrieve it and keep it out of the hands of evil.

America also has a secret that takes about half of the book to reveal---ooooh! Mysterious, indeed!!

I don't want to reveal too much so I'll move on to my review of the book as a whole. This book, like all of the other books that I've read by author Jillian Stone, absolutely rocks. I enjoyed every single bit of it. Again, as with Book 1, we have a couple different plot lines that snake their way across the pages of the novel. Each plot line is clearly developed and, due to the nature of each, are completely intertwined.

The entire novel is strong and the plot flows along really well. This novel is fast paced but not so fast that you are left unsatisfied. The characters are solid and I really enjoy their interactions; all of them...not just Phaeton and America.

An alternate London that is unraveling and taking present-day London down with it, a trio of succubus sisters who won't take no for an answer, and a mysterious egg that everyone wants to get their hands on. Who can you turn too in order to help set things to rights? Why, Phaenton Black and America Jones of course!

After having read The Seduction of Phaenton Black back in June, I knew that I'd be continuing the series. I greatly enjoyed the adventures of Phaenton and America in the first book, so I was really looking forward to revisiting them. When the opportunity to read The Moonstone and Miss Jones came up for a tour event, I pounced on it without a moment's hesitation! Yes, the series is that good.

The first thing I would like to mention is, though this is the second book of a series, you do not necessarily have to read book one in order to understand what is going on. The events from the first book a touched upon, but the adventure and mystery that take place are separate issues from those in the first book. However, I would strongly recommend that you read The Seduction of Phaenton Black only because it will give you a deeper appreciation for the characters and the events taking place in this novel.

Having said that, I really enjoyed The Moonstone and Miss Jones. Stone has once again managed to create a storyline that hooks the reader from the first page and keeps them reading long into the night. The adventure, humor, and romance that I loved so much from the first book are back along with a new element: steampunk. Okay, admittedly there were some steampunk elements in the first book, but they were not nearly as noticeable as they are this time around. Let's just say that the man with the mechanical face left an impression on me. =^.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a blog tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. I rated it 4.5 Stars:

The Moonstone and Miss Jones by Jillian Stone, the second book in the Paranormal Investigator series picks up roughly a few months after the end of The Seduction of Phaeton Black ends. With likable characters, an intriguing mystery and plenty of steampunk action, Ms. Stone once again took me into the unique world she's created. While we still get to see plenty of the steamy romance between the two main characters, this book focuses more on the strange and unusual things taking place around them.

At the beginning of this book, Phaeton Black and America Jones find themselves at the opposite ends of the world - Phaeton is back in London after being kidnapped in Shanghai and America is in Shanghai thinking Phaeton has abandoned her. Determined to get her man back, America is prepared to do whatever it takes to find Phaeton. Luckily her gargoyle sidekick is able to help her and she ends up back in London at Phaeton's flat. Back together again, strange things begin happening around them and Phaeton soon realizes that one of his possessions has gone missing - the round orb he was given by the Egyptian goddess Qadesh, which everyone calls a "moonstone". Now he, America and the "Nightshade" warriors will have to locate the "moonstone" before London becomes part of an alternate reality.

I enjoyed how Ms. Stone continued to develop both Phaeton and America's characters together and as individuals. While Phaeton is still strong, virile and cocky, he's also getting in touch with his emotions and realizes he a life worth fighting for.
