More About the Author

A multi-published, national award winning author, Jillian Stone started out as an advertising creative. And her career did seem to suit her as she won many national ad awards including the Clio and the New York Art Director's Club Gold. What more could she ask for? Create her own worlds? Become goddess of her own universe? Yes! So, she began to write fiction. Her Victorian Romantic Suspense novel AN AFFAIR WITH MR. KENNEDY (The Gentlemen of Scotland Yard) won the Romance Writers of America 2010 Golden Heart and sold to Pocket Books. Her steamin' sexy, supernatural Steampunk novel, THE SEDUCTION OF PHAETON BLACK, won the 2010 Romance Through The Ages Erotica category and sold to Kensington Brava. Jillian lives in Southern California and is currently working on more adventures for both series.

NEWS FLASH: THE DO IT LIST released June 19, 2015. Jillian's new contemporary erotic romance. Hotshot copywriter, Gracie Taylor-Scott, has a reputation for her artfully edgy ads. A rising star at Darcy Wexler Dean, New York, the long hours are perfect cover for Gracie's fear of intimacy issues.

Bradley Craig, the new head of DWD's research division, has secrets of his own. Much lauded in his field of consumer behavior, there's a darker side to the attractive, enigmatic ad man...his erotic list-maker side.

What's at stake? Two Super Bowl spots and two fragile hearts.

Oh my... Phaeton is a naughty combination of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond. He drinks absinthe, seduces women, and investigates paranormal problems for Scotland Yard. Then he meets Miss America Jones, daughter of a Cajun witch with powers of her own. They must work together or perish.

This is definitely the adult only version of this kind of story. The naughty bits are very graphic. The story however is delightful; just keep this one on the top shelf away from young ones hands. For all the adults who love paranormal mysteries, James Bond stories, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Who, or the Mortal Instruments Series these are definitely the books for you... especially if you want something a little hot and spicy.

Such a good read. I give it 5 out of 5 clouds and a chili pepper rating of 9... sizzling hot.

Format: Paperback
Shortly after the Jack the Ripper killings came to an abrupt stop, more killings start to occur in the streets of Victorian London, but this time the victims are left with two small puncture marks on their necks. Scotland Yard has no choice but to bring back their best investigator, Special Agent Phaeton Black, who was recently fired.

During his break from Scotland Yard, Phaeton has spent many of days seducing the prostitutes as he lives under a brothel. He eagerly takes on the case, which he believes a vampire is responsible for the killings. While hunting for the night creature, a beautiful woman named Miss America Jones, a half Cajun witch, runs into him as a gang of ruthless pirates, who stole her father's shipping company, are chasing her. With no other choice, Phaeton helps America escape the pirates.

America is a smart, strong-headed young woman, unlike many of the other women Phaeton has seduced, and she may be just what he needs to catch the killer. He always shuts off his emotions when it comes to women, but there is something about America that sends his heart a racing. Could it be that he has feelings for her? On the other hand, is she just using him for her own gain?

The intriguing cover was the first thing I noticed when I received this book in the mail, courtesy of the Bewitching Book Tours. If you don't like reading steamy, and sometimes graphic love scenes, then this book probably isn't for you, as this is basically all you find in the first thirty pages. The main character Phaeton Black has the wit of Sherlock Holmes, the charm of James Bond, and humor of Austin Powers. He lives above of a brothel, in which he is their number one client.

Format: Kindle Edition
I was eagerly awaiting this book. I like action, paranormal elements and interesting hero and heroines. This book provided little of any.

The blurb leads you to believe America Jones has special powers and is a kick ass action type heroine who fights mummies, etc. Not the case. There was one time she tried to use minor voodoo which the other character laughs off. That's it from our Cajun princess.

Phaeton Black was totally unlikeable and not in a fun, smarmy way. He's just a pig. (What's with the nail polish on the male cover model?!?)With the exception of one or two male characters, most are unlikeable and none are really fleshed out..

The storyline meandered and the sex scenes were awful. "Poked her slit" really?!? And did that wording have to be used multiple times? "Mortal breeding tool" (or machine, I forget) for penis. Gah!

I wanted to stop reading many times, but I decided early on I wanted to review this, because the good reviews I read made me want to pick it up and I feel others need fair warning (plus I ALWAYS hope books will get better after just a couple more pages).

Format: Paperback
The Seduction of Phaeton Black is a sexy romp in the late 1880's London. With a bit of a Sherlock Holmes feel and some serious heat, this one is a historical paranormal romance keeper.

The characters in Phaeton Black really drive the story, which is how I prefer my PNR. The title character, Phaeton, is an infamous lover, loner, and solver of the oddest of crimes. He is a detective for Scotland Yard, but on on a bit of a leave since the Yard disagreed with his beliefs about the Jack the Ripper case. Phaeton has been plagued by the paranormal since he was little - gargoyles, demons, vampires, etc. Phaeton and America meet under extremely unusual circumstances one night while America is trying to outrun a group of pirates chasing her. Her father has recently died and his ships have been stolen by these pirates. America comes to live with Phaeton after her home is burnt down ...and so it begins.

Phaeton and America have many hot sexual encounters, but keep their feelings for each other at arm's length for different reasons. The story is told from the alternating points of view of each, which sometimes bothers me in books but works well here. I loved reading what was going on inside each of their heads about each other and seeing their steamier moments from the different points of view was certainly fun.

Meanwhile, there is an actual paranormal mystery taking place here. Murders have been taking place around town and Phaeton knows that something paranormal is behind them. One complaint I had about this book was that the author, Jillian Stone, kept referring to this entity by all kinds of different terms (Is it a vampire? Empusa? Goddess?) and I felt myself getting a little lost sometimes, thinking the narrator was referring to a new creature.
