_________________________________________________________________________________

An interview with Phaeton Black, Paranormal Investigator: More on the just released, The Moonstone and Miss Jones.

Jillian: “How would you describe the paranormal side of the plot in The Moonstone and Miss Jones?”

Phaeton: “Ah yes, Phaeton and America part deux: a tale of two Londons. Well, where do I begin…upon our return to London, we quickly discover an alternate future London––one that is sucking the bloody life out of my city, the dark, and often dreary metropolis of 1889––the one I know and love. For lack of a better name, we often refer to this parallel city as Outremer London, admittedly, a rather hasty use of the French word meaning ‘distant lands beyond the sea.’ But then, when one is on the run from Skeezicks, Reapers and other strange dregs––what’s a paranormal investigator to do, but choose an overly romantic name for such an odd phenomena?”

Jillian: “I manage to introduce a number of new characters. Some of them, like the Nightshades, help you battle the strange Outremer creatures. Still others…well who knows if they are friend or foe? All of them are interested in one thing, and one thing alone.”

Phaeton: “The Moonstone. As I said, we’re under attack by these strange creatures who plague 1889 London, and, well, I suppose there’s no other way to explain it, but things appear to be unraveling––on both sides. With the help from the Nightshades, Miss Jones and I venture into this alternate London to extract the Moonstone and close the rabbit hole between the two worlds. Plot-wise, this is all I will reveal, and suffice it to say, Miss Jones and I have our own issues to work out, as well. The series reader has a new flock of characters to get to know and dare I say––the story continues well beyond The Moonstone and Miss Jones…”

Jillian: “What exactly are these issues you and America Jones have to work out?”

Phaeton: “I will reveal this much––we take turns being angry at one another, but the sex is lively––an RT reviewer’s warning: SCORCHER. The story picks up a few months after The Seduction of Phaeton Black. If you recall­­, America and I sail off into the sunset happily ever after––or at least happy for now. Then, in The Moonstone and Miss Jones I am quite rudely shanghaied in Shanghai. America, rightly or wrongly, believes I abandoned ship and chases me back to London. Needless to say, the moment she catches up to me, we become entangled in a nefarious plot by powerful Outremer moguls of industry to recover the Moonstone, and the one person in 1889 London who can unleash its energy and save both worlds.”

Jillian: “And who might that be, the author asks with a grin?”

Phaeton: “Who do you think?” Phaeton winks.

Just for Commenters:

Jillian: “Phaeton, do you have a question for commenters? Something you’ve always wanted to ask the romance reader?”

Phaeton: “This will likely cause a lovely blush to the reader’s cheeks, but I can’t resist. I love it when America teases me and is somewhat sexually aggressive. Not long ago, on another blog––far, far away in cyber space––a commenter told a story about a first date kiss. I found it unbelieveably hot. She wrote: ‘I grabbed the front of his jacket and pulled him in for a kiss.’ The lucky bloke became her husband! So tell me, my darlings, what naughty bit of first date kissing can you share?

Jillian: “As a special treat for commenters today, Phaeton Black will be answering your comments––so prepare to fall in love!”

To celebrate the release of book #2, I will be giving away a signed copy of the  readers choice: The Seduction of Phaeton Black or The Moonstone and Miss Jones to a lucky commenter chosen at random.

Thanks to Kristie at Dark Faerie Tales. Love this blog! Jillian

About this Book:

A master of paranormal deduction—and paramour seduction—Phaeton Black has a knack for bumping into things that go bump in the night, from ghoulies and ghosties to long-leggedy beauties…

Mooning For The Moonstone

Barely escaping the clutches of a succulent succubus, Phaeton Black returns to London only to get sucked into another unearthly scheme. Professor Lovecraft has been tinkering with the secrets of life and death, replacing body parts with the latest mechanical marvels. To succeed, he needs to tap the power of the fabled Moonstone—and he needs Phaeton’s help. Of course, Phaeton would prefer to investigate the more interesting body parts of Miss America Jones. Perhaps, bringing his lady friend along for the ride won’t be to too much trouble…

Shanghaied In Shanghai

The bewilderingly beautiful and bountifully gifted daughter of a Cajun witch, Miss Jones is always up for an adventure, especially with Mr. Black as her traveling companion. But when Phaeton is mysteriously shanghaied in Shanghai, America thinks he’s run out on her. Stranded in the Orient—and steaming mad—she’s prepared to look under every stone for the missing detective. The case has put them both in the most compromising positions, but this time, Miss Jones is on top and Mr. Black is at the bottom…of a truly infernal plot.

    I know the first kiss with my husband was actually while we were out on our first real date. I guess I got tired of waiting for him to make the move so I kinda just grabbed him and laid one on him! He wasn’t shy after that! Great interview!

    Thanks for a fabulous post and congrats to Jillian on her continued writing success :) I’m so excited cuz I just got the Seduction of PB and I can’t wait to start reading :) This was such a fun “interview”!

    Ummm… my first kiss… I was 17 and I was actually whining about never being kissed to a guy friend. Well… he grabbed me and gave me my first kiss and french kiss. You could say… I wasn’t impressed. But he was still a good friend for trying. I did go home and brushed my teeth cuz at that time I had no idea that what a french kiss was. I just thought he was being gross ;)

    Susan S: I must say, the thought of you lovely ladies reading my love scenes with America is…arousing.

    Lexi darling: It’s the grab the lapels, spontaneity of the moment that makes it memorable…I’m sure of it.

    erin1: In France, it is referred to as baiser amoureux “lover’s kiss.” Now, if I had been there…

    Jolene: We’re a little bit steampunk, with some paranormal and erotica tossed in there…and we do make an attractive couple, don’t we?

    Sounds like a terrific series!

    I haven’t had any memorable first date kiss unfortunately. All very non-memorable…
