From steam-powered bunkers to steamy boudoirs, paranormal detective Phaeton Black knows his way around Victorian London. But sometimes, when you slip down a rabbit hole, there’s no turning back. . .
If The Portal’s A-Rockin’
Phaeton Black is missing. Sucked into an alternative universe—courtesy of Professor Lovecraft’s Trans-Dimensional Injection Portal—the illustrious investigator is nowhere to be found. Even the bewitching Miss America Jones, who’s pregnant with Phaeton’s child, has no clue to his whereabouts. But when a spy fly’s microphone picks up Phaeton’s voice in the parlors of Paris, she enlists his dearest friends to track him down—before his deadliest enemies find him first. . .
Don’t Come A-Knockin’
Accompanied by the dashing Dr. Exeter, his delightful ward Mia, and a trusty duo of Nightshades, it’s off to the City of Lights for the determined Miss Jones. Unfortunately, there is something about Paris in the fall that brings out the devil in Dr. Exeter—and the beast in mild-mannered Mia, whose animal urges transform her into a gorgeous panther. With physical reality unraveling on both sides of the cosmic rift, the good doctor must extract Phaeton Black from the clutches of a diabolical techno-wizard—or both could lose the women they love to love. . .forever.
Mia and Exeter will most certainly keep you on your toes as you follow them from one sticky situation to the next, all while slipping in and out of alternate realities. London and Paris both host the past and the future through portals that these two must traverse in order to find the famed Phaeton Black. Their journey is made all the more exhilarating with the inclusion of Mia’s lessons on sexuality, which is wonderfully sensual as well as fun. The great worldly doctor definitely has his hands full with this fiercely intelligent young woman, maybe even more than he realizes.
