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.

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!

I was really looking forward to this second installment after having enjoyed "The Seduction of Phaeton Black", however it fell flat with me. I love Phaeton and America, which is why I wanted to see where they went next, but I was completely uninterested in their latest adventure. I found myself skimming and only reading the America and Phaeton parts because I was dying to know how they deal with this new secret of her's. That part held my attention but I just couldn't get into the rest of the book.

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 :-)!!!

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.
