The Moonstone is having a destabilizing effect on the time/space membrane leaving Phaeton trapped in a parallel mirror world where everything is opposite or upside down, yet oddly the same. He is held captive by Domina Valour and tested sorely in this darkly sensual third episode of the Phaeton Black series.
Gaspar Sinclair can't go after Phaeton. His physical body is unraveling before everyone's eyes. America Jones is large with child, but only she has the preternatural ability to locate Phaeton and bring him back. And Doctor Exeter's beautiful charge, Mia, has her claws in him. Quite literally.
To accomplish Phaeton's rescue, the doctor must let loose forces he hasn't the foggiest clue how to control, including his attraction to Mia.
While in the dimension of magnetic opposites, the doctor and Miss Jones attempt to reverse polarity to retrieve Phaeton and stop Gaspar from unraveling. Can America and Phaeton find a way to return together, or will this final test rip them apart forever?

Apparently, I need to read the Phaeton Black series, as I will admit, I was a little lost. Although as a fan of Jillian Stone’s novels, I continued reading and found myself thoroughly enjoying this steampunk, shape-shifter, steamy little romance.
While there were a few bits throughout the book that made me wondering what was going, I felt that the sexual tension and interaction between Mia and Exeter were brilliant.
Definitely worth checking out the previous novels in the series.
