Editorial Reviews

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

What a wonderful gripping steam punk fantasy.

There better be a third book in this series as I didn't like the ending, and I can't say why as that would entail me giving spoilers and we wouldn't want that.

This novel is a fast-paced paranormal romance with a great plot.

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 story reminds me of scooby doo. I must say that Phaeton uses unusual means in order to accomplish the end game. He manages to get out of complicated situations mostly by luck not with any skill that might be available. I really like America I think she is quick witted and very resourceful. The other characters seem very interesting and I'm drawn to the uniqueness of them. However, the storyline is what gets me most and why I have continued to read this. Again, I can't wait for the next book.

Lots of action and paranormal adventures! Very fun. Though at times, the action was a bit jerky, I relished the non-stop, swashbuckling commotion, steampunk devices and supernatural beings. Edvard the gargoyle is one of my favorites. The addition of the Nightshades, a sort of paranormal protection force, adds interesting characters and more evil fighting potential. Exeter is still there, though I am still waiting to learn more about this enigmatic man. I think maybe book three?

But my favorite characters are the ever cocksure Phaeton Black and the beautiful America Jones. They make such a delicious, loving and sexy couple! Their brains and their banter make for wonderful dialogue......or foreplay!

The Moonstone and Miss Jones is a continuation of The Seduction of Phaeton Black, though you don't have to read book one to appreciate Moonstone. But this book does end on a cliff hanger. Personally, I think series books ought to wait until at least book three for a cliff hanger (especially at this price). To do otherwise is a bit cocky, or Phaeton-like. But I am not going to let this particular opinion of mine keep me from reading book 3 soon!

Format: Paperback
This novel is like "Indiana Jones", "The Mommy" and "H G Wells" all rolled into one. If you like those steampunk era, you'll love this historical suspense romance of the 19th century packed with adventures in the Outremer, parallel world, nightshades, chased by reapers, glubbers, and with those darn RALS crawling around. Not to mention half-breeds and demons. All in all, it's action packed!! Yet, there's still lots of room for steamy passion and romance. Great fun to read this book. This is the second book in the series, although the ending is not to my liking, but that only means the third book is on the way, and hope it will be out soon. ;)

Plot here in 2nd of series seems a little more muddled but is still quite entertaining and funny. Also still VERY steamy!
Am not sure about the end of this one, but have already ordered the 3rd in the series - and received it just yesterday. Will see how it goes.
Perhaps I'll need to re-read this one first :-)!!!

Absolutely love where this is going. You learn much more of what our heroes are up against and the end is heartbreaking. Can't wait for the next book.

Well I must say I cried in the end as it wasn't the ending I wanted, but a cliffhanger instead! I loved when Phaeton and America were reunited:
"And while we were separated, did you...think of me?"
Phaeton rose from the chair. "Every minute." He strode toward her slowly. "Of every hour." He caught her up in his arms. "Of every bleeding day." His gaze fell to her mouth...
I also didn't realize Phaeton takes alone time with America VERY seriously, "If we're going to be rooming together, there's something you should know before barging into my bedchamber. When America and I are engaged in...private matters, there will first be a series of moans and cries - perhaps a few naughty demands in french - hers. Those lovely utterances will be followed by a second set of grunts and bellows. Those...would be mine." Phaeton raised a brow. "Did you hear any grunts and bellows?" There better be a third book in this series as I didn't like the ending, and I can't say why as that would entail me giving spoilers and we wouldn't want that.
