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.

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).

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.

Read this book very quickly...then bought the next one and read it...and then read this one again!
Mystery plots are handled nicely - interesting take on Jack the Ripper but the ships "mystery" resolves easily - and the characters are entertaining. Book is quick and funny...and VERY steamy!
Have already ordered the 3rd in the series...although given the end of the 2nd, one wonders just how the third will be....

There are so many delicious things I like about The Seduction of Phaeton Black:

*Phaeton is a young old man. That is to say he is young, but his paranormal abilities have led him to see and experience more in his short life that many do in their lifetime. He has become jaded and cocky and has sworn never to laugh.
*America Jones, the heroine, is tough, independent and is exactly what Phaeton needs. Where Phaeton is blasé, America is hopeful.
*The relationship of Phaeton and America. I won't say how it happened, only that, at their first meeting, I was a bit put off at first. But persistence paid off and after getting to know the characters more I can look back and say 'hmmm'. The Phaeton/America relationship is intriguing and vexing, flirtatious and steamy.
*Two plots going on at the same time. First, America is hunting the pirates that stole her deceased father's ships. Second, Phaeton is investigating the paranormal Jack-the-Ripper-like deaths in London. With two stories, the happenings are nonstop for both the hero and the heroine.
*Jason Exeter - definite sequel material here. This enigmatic man of unusual scholarly and paranormal abilities both partners with and mentors Phaeton in the ongoing investigation.

All these delicious aspects of this book made for a very satisfying adventure!
