Of course, Mia has other plans and attempts to push Exerter into sexual overload at every turn. The story was extremely interesting and original with a great balance of erotica aspects and substantial plot building. Complex and developed story with panty melting sex, The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter was a brilliantly crafted read.

    DNF This book is not at all to my liking. I was expecting something different from a steampunk novel. Not a guardian and his ward becoming romantically involved. In this book, it felt equivalent to a father-daughter relationship and it grossed me out. He is not only 12 years older than her, but very very experienced to the heroine's virginal innocence.

When there are better and more devoted men. The heroine is also going through this feverish-heat moment because of her paranormal nature. So the hero decides to take care of it. For some reason, all those factors combined in THIS BOOK felt sacrilegious. Not only that, but being the third book in the series (which I didn't realise), I felt like there was little background information to the paranormal world. All the above reasons contributed to my decision to stop reading. ARC Courtesy of NetGalley and Kensington Books

    I have to begin with saying that this will not be a review, this will be a book rant. If I had not received this book from NetGalley I would not have finished it. The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter is like a crazy dream after especially hard day. The story jumps from place to place, one scene ends without any easing out of it and new one starts with next passage. There where many times I had to reread some pages, since I did not understand, what was going on, who was who and where were they. True, I have to begin with saying that this will not be a review, this will be a book rant. If I had not received this book from NetGalley I would not have finished it. The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter is like a crazy dream after especially hard day. The story jumps from place to place, one scene ends without any easing out of it and new one starts with next passage. There where many times I had to reread some pages, since I did not understand, what was going on, who was who and where were they. True, I have not read the previous books of this series, but I do not think, that would have helped me. The story is basically Dr. Exeter's and Mia's love story, if you can call it a love story. I actually would say, that love had no place in this story. Every other chapter was about Exeter curing Mia's "hysteria/urge to change", first with hand, then with vibrating finger, then with his member, then with an orb of vibrating something and so on, so every other chapter was fuckfest. Even if the criminal mystery part of the book demands them to find the missing person or hiding themselves and everything is extremely urgent, they have enough time to have a romp behind curtains or in plain sight for everybody. Their relationship was clinical, or pure lust and love was not once part of the story. As I already told, the story was jumpy, but it also had many illogical places, like when people who were naked a moment ago, are fully dressed the next, or how 19th century pantaloons fit smugly into pocket and so on. If I understood correctly they move around in two dimensions and previous books probably had more information about it, one can only hope, but I could also be wrong, since there is this constant talk about Outermere (hope I got it right) and in one place is mentioned, that this pace is in 21th century, but I could be totally wrong. Yes I know it's fantasy and steampunk (although there was very little steampunkish), but still, not all logic mistakes can explained with - it's a fantasy. So, in conclusion I would say, it was a kind of Steampunkish, kind on romance, some criminal mystery and a lot of kind of erotica. Not a good read at all.

    This review is going to be short and to the point, since I don't really have much to say about it either positively or negatively. First, the positives: +I really liked the language used within this novel. It was pleasantly descriptive, and did a great job sucking the reader into the world that Jillian Stone re-imagined. It made me want to run alongside the characters and see what they saw. +The cover is gorgeous.

First, the positives: +I really liked the language used within this novel. It was pleasantly descriptive, and did a great job sucking the reader into the world that Jillian Stone re-imagined. It made me want to run alongside the characters and see what they saw. +The cover is gorgeous. I'm a sucker for most steampunk works, and this cover would definitely catch my attention. From the steamy (ha) looking couple to the striking purple background, I think that this book will get plenty of double glances on bookstore shelves (or ereader sites, if that's what you prefer). + There's just enough sizzling romance in this book to keep things interesting. It doesn't force itself into the plot, or take away from the bigger picture of the story. I have read books where both of those are unfortunately the case. -Unfortunately, I didn't realize that this was the third book in a series. It came off confusing from the start, and throughout the novel I felt as though I was missing a vital part of the story. Perhaps that's why I didn't really connect with any of the characters, maybe we just needed more time and back story to bond over. -I also feel like this book will get lost in this up and coming steampunk trend. I've been seeing an increase in the genre, and they all sound rather similar after awhile. For me, this read was simply average, and it will probably go unremembered as I read more steampunk tales. This book wasn't bad, just not my thing. If you like steampunk and paranormal romance, give this book a shot. It might be your new favorite. But, as someone who hasn't read books one or two, I suggest that you do so before reading this one. Maybe it will make your reading experience all the better. Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington Books for my copy. This review can also be found on my humble blog, Bitches n Prose.

Pick up any book in Jillian Stone’s Paranormal Investigator series and you will be transported into a Sherlock Holmes movie. Be prepared for mind boggling inventions, humor, mystery and hot flash inducing sex scenes. The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter continues on from book two without missing a beat. Phaeton is missing his sidekicks, being led by Dr. Exeter, are on the hunt. The missing Moonstone is on everyone’s mind...well, perhaps Dr. Exeter’s mind which is occupied more on his seductive charge, Mia. In typical Exeter fashion he takes on the role of finding his missing friend, Phaeton, and the challenge of aiding Mia with her new ability using a detached clinical manner. Though he is not quite as detached as he wished to remain. Mia is a shifter, her black panther wants to come out and play and the only way to tame her is to keep Mia satisfied. If that sounds dirty to you that’s because it is. Even though their passion is irresistible Stone balances the story out with action and mystery. Stone gives you enough to make you form an opinion of a character, then she reveals another part and you second guess yourself. Incredibly well written, The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter immerses you and keeps you under. Stone keeps the tone and feel of a Victorian era book while adding in references and descriptions that make it feel fresh. If you love paranormal romance and steampunk with a dash of erotic you HAVE to give this series a try. Jillian Stone will blow you away.

Not having read the previous two books, I was pleased at how quickly I understood everything happening in this this super intricate plot. THE MISS EDUCATION OF DR. EXETER mixes steampunk with a fast paced sci-fi adventure story, and an intense romance. Mia is extremely headstrong and full of energy. Her immaturity at times was annoying but considering she was in her very early 20s it made sense and it was exaggerated because she is at least 13 years younger than Dr. Exeter. I enjoyed seeing Mia and Dr. Exeter work together to control her panther transformations. The sexual tension between these two is high especially since Dr. Exeter seems so apprehensive at first considering her age. The attempts he makes to avoid Mia’s propositions and her reactions to his stiffness leads to some funny moments. When Dr. Exeter’s will inevitably breaks, the sex is surprisingly steamy and erotic. I enjoyed the interactions between Mia and Dr. Exeter but at times it felt like there was too much focus on the sexual tension and romance than on Phaeton’s rescue. Phaeton seems like a very unique man and after the little glimpses into his story I am looking forward to reading the first two books and any possible future books in the Paranormal Investigator series. Sexual content: multiple graphic sex scenes

    As usual with ALL of Jillian's characters I fall in love but Exeter was more so, "you are changing, Mia, from a precocious adorable girl into a most sultry beauty. From here on out, I will have to keep a close watch on myself." He's also a very blunt person, and so attractive, "he sipped his brandy and continued to stare over the rim of his glass. Finally, he lowered the snifter. "Oh, I'm not going to paddle you, Mia. I'm going to make you climax." Is it hot in here or just me?

It's interesting when Exeter and Mia have a fight, "I've just spent a king's bloody ransom on your wardrobe." He sagged against the damask stripes of the settee. "What do you want from me?" Geesh Exeter rude much? Mia may be shy about some things but the girl is getting sick of Exeter saying no, "stop flogging yourself over your attraction to me - I like it - I want you to want me... and I will not ask again." The cat nuzzled his neck and licked his ear. "Please, Exeter, it has to be you..." Loved the ending no cliffhanger, but I was sad to see the book end I wanted it to keep going because I've grown to care so much for each of these characters.

    This was a decent addition to the series, and I liked having the main focus shift from the couple that the previous two books focused on to another couple that was just starting to happen. It made it more interesting than I think it otherwise would have been. However, the plot is getting more and more complicated, and there were times when I just skimmed through a few paragraphs because it didn't seem to make much sense.

This story, set in the paranormal, steampunkish, alternative universe invented by Jillian Stone of her Phaeton Black series, is firmly (pun definitely intended) of that vein. Dr. Exeter being the teacher who both educates and gets seduced by his student, Mia. Mia is legally an adult, but she has been Exeter’s ward for the past ten years. He’s seen her grow from child to woman and he’s having a difficult time changing how he thinks about her. Mia, on the other hand, has no problem whatsoever seeing him as the only man she’ll ever love. Exeter wants a normal life for Mia. It’s not going to happen. Mia is a shapeshifter, and her other form is a deadly panther. The only way that Exeter, a powerful sorcerer in his own right, has discovered that she might be able to control her form shifting, is through sexual release. Not only can neither Exeter nor Mia bear the thought of another man initiating her sexually, but who else can either of them trust with the secret of her other identity? Meanwhile, Mia must gain control of her cat. Their friend Phaeton Black is still in the hands of the alternate world wizard Propero, and his lover America Jones is very near her delivery date with their child. The child will have special powers, and needs the protection of everyone in Phaeton’s circle. The baby needs her father back, but the number of nefarious powers at work seems to be growing. In the middle of these plots and counter-plots, Exeter is increasingly distracted by the depth of his new-found feelings for Mia. He starts out with the intention of helping her control her power, but discovers that in addition to Mia's sexual awakening, he experiences an emotional awakening that shakes him. It’s amazing how many times he has to let her go before he can be convinced that he belongs with her. Being a powerful wizard does not make a man any more knowledgeable about the matters of his own heart. Escape Rating B+: The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter is a very erotic variation on the lessons in seduction story. The need to control Mia’s panther shifting provides a fantastic excuse for those lessons and for Exeter to put down the barriers between guardian and ward that he has maintained for ten years. This was foreshadowed in the previous book in the series, The Moonstone and Miss Jones. so I’ve been looking forward to this story. The worldbuilding of this alternate version of London (and Paris) is definitely a continuation of the Phaeton Black series. To understand about the Moonstone and who they are rescuing, you’ll need to have read the whole series, starting with The Seduction of Phaeton Black. For anyone who likes steamy steampunk, this is not exactly a hardship. The series is tremendously good dirty fun. I would love to see more in this world. While the dangling issues from Moonstone were resolved in this story in addition to Mia and Exeter’s love story, there were a whole bunch of things from this alternate world that I would like to see explored. Could we go back? Please?

But I was surprised to see that this time we did not follow our beloved couple as from the beginning of the series but Dr Exeter and Mia. It was strange to change of characters, but as we knew them from the beginning, it was also quite interesting to find out more about these two people. I must say that the professor is very attracted to Mia and vice versa, but he does not want to admit it and prefers to look the other way. However, their relationship will change when for controlling the panther she has in her, Mia must find a man who can help while forging a closer relationship. And who better than our dear professor? Of course, he is persuaded he will be able to keep it purely academic, of course, something that is not really possible. On top of that, Miss Jones is obviously still there, even though we don’t see her a lot, still pregnant and ready have her child soon, and yet still in search of her lover Phaeton. And when they find a record with his voice from the other world, our small team is determined to rescue our investigator. But all this is of course much more complicated than expected, especially given the number of people who’s after him. It is a journey that will take them to France, a country I always enjoy to read about. And despite some mistakes in some sentences in that language, it was nice to find some places and names that I knew. I loved this quest to find our hero as I was curious to see where it would lead them and I can’t wait for the next novel. It will be in any case a lot of fun to find out what will happen. Regarding Mia and Dr. Exeter, I admit as I was warned by the many steamy scenes between the two main characters, I was therefore not really surprised but it is true that there are many more than in the last novel (or it is maybe just an idea). It, however, was pretty cute to see a relationship between these two characters who deeply appreciate each other. I’m still curious to see what will come out because it takes a lot of time to our good doctor to realize what exactly is happening. And I must say that they really are both very stubborn in their decisions. It was an enjoyable read but it’s true that I missed Phaeton and Miss Jones and I can not wait to read about them again.

I haven't read the first two books, but I was quickly immersed in the characters and world that she has created. It was easy to tell what had happened prior to this book. I like it when an author can catch us up that way without an info dump. This one is is a mystery, suspense, erotica SteamPunk mixture. Dr. Exeter's ward has begun shape-shifting. This is hard on her and their bodyguards have discovered a way to help her gain control of her transitions. This involves letting her "urges" help her to focus her energies. Her inner cat (a black panther) likes the idea that the doctor is going to help her. Mia is also thrilled. It's much better than just letting her change, run around the park, and then change back, tired and exhausted. This leads to some highly erotic passages as the mentor and the ward get closer, much closer. This isn't just porn without plot. Asa and Mia are friends with a kidnapped man, Phaeton Black, and his very pregnant love, America Jones. The team of supporting characters have found where he's being held and they must work together to rescue him. This involves skipping through time, space, and the catacombs of Paris. Never a dull moment in this book. There are creatures, both hideous and kind, popping up all the time. It's sometimes hard to tell just who are the good guys, and who is the bad. The reason this is not a 4.5 rating is because as I read bedroom (and alley, and closet, and kitchen) romps, I don't want to be stopped by wondering how one got from one's knees, to one's feet. There is a progression to moves, a ballet, if you will. And when I can't see that smooth progression, I stop taking in the scene and start dissecting it. There were many moments where it seemed like something had been cut...and not replaced. The choreography of their intimate moments wasn't always cohesive. Stopped me in my reading tracks. Which isn't to say this wasn't steamy, because it was. And others might not notice the inconsistencies. I did enjoy the intensity of Mia and Asa's dance. And you might, too. Three and half Bookmarks (rounded to FOUR for Goodreads)! *Thank you, NetGalley and Kensington Books, for the opportunity to read this book.

    The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter is a tantalizing mix of several genres: Steampunk, Fantasy, Paranormal, Time-Travel, Sci-Fi, and Romance. Please note that there may be spoilers for Books 1 & 2 in the review of Book 3. This is your only warning.

Please note that there may be spoilers for Books 1 & 2 in the review of Book 3. This is your only warning. In book 2 we were left with a very pregnant America, a missing Phaeton, and a Panther bursting at the seams. It is very important that Phaeton and the Moonstone are located before any sort of disaster occurs. This is easier said than done when the very objects that are used to try and find Phaeton become tools for the enemy. These tools allow the captor to stay one step ahead of the search party, much to the frustration of everyone involved. Surprisingly, The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter doesn't wholly focus on Phaeton and America and their plight. They are sort-of secondary to the amazing Dr. Exeter and his charge, Mia. Mia is undergoing some significant changes, not just transitioning from a teenager to a young woman. Dr. Exeter must make sure to help her take control of the beast within and with this task comes some pretty tender to pretty erotic moments. We also see Dr. Exeter struggle with his feelings toward Mia, having been her caretaker for years, he' reluctant to move in any other direction than that of a mentor. Mia, and her inner panther, however, have completely different ideas. One of the greatest things about how Jillian Stone writes is that she can bring all kinds of storylines into her novels (Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series included) and not lose focus on the plot and main theme. The focus may be on Mia and Dr. Exeter in Book 3, but saving Phaeton and the moonstone is never forgotten or cast aside. The health of America and her unborn child is still of utmost importance. This is another great installment of the Phaeton Black, Paranormal Investigator series. Favorite Quotes: "The panther's tamer used his finger like a whip and chair" (Stone, J., 2013, pg. 105). "I believe some ferocious sex and no arguing would be lovely right about now" (Stone, J., 2013, pg. 137). You'll have to read the book to find out who says these lines :) Review Copy Courtesy Of: The publisher, Kensington, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Unfortunately I very quickly realised that the romance in this novel tended towards the erotica which is not really my cup of tea. I wish the blurb made this clearer and acknowledged that the novel was more about Dr Exeter and his ward Mia rather than the absent Phaeton and his heavily pregnant beloved America. Mia is a were-panther who is experiencing more involuntary shifts. The men decide it must be due to her sexual frustration and someone needs to give her some good loving. Exeter knows Mia is in love with him but so far has managed to restrain himself. He tries to approach the matter in a clinical fashion but the cat inside Mia is a decidedly saucy minx. I didn’t really enjoy the romance between the two as it didn’t really develop beyond lots of lusty erotic moments, some of which felt contrived. Also, in the back of my head I kept remembering that Exeter had been legally responsible for Mia from when she was a child - there are some boundaries that shouldn’t really be crossed. What was missing though was much in the way of background for Exeter and Mia. I did however really enjoy the world that had been created. I haven’t read the first two books so it was a little daunting being thrust into such a complex environment. I was able to get the gist of some of what had been happening but I feel as if I missed out on a large chunk of it. Parallel worlds can be lots of fun if done right and I think this one worked from what I grasped of the rules involved and the general execution. The story moved along at a steady pace although the romance did slow it down in parts. There were some loose threads left at the end surrounding the big baddie but everything else was fairly neatly tied up. There were parts of this that I really enjoyed and others that left me a little cold. I think you really need to start with book one and see if it is a style that would suit you before jumping into number three. *book received from publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This was the first steampunk romance that I've read, so I wasn't very sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed it! There's quite a lot going in on this book, which is the third in the Phaeton Black, Paranormal Investigator series. Whilst I did figure out what was going on, there were times I was a little lost. I was also playing catch up with anything steampunk related, so there was a lot to wrap my brain around, but I found my feet quickly. When I first started thinking about what to write in my review, the first phrase I thought of was, unashamedly erotic. I knew going into it to expect erotic scenes, but hot damn! I think my kindle steamed up. These scenes were so well written and fitted into the plot perfectly, especially with Mia trying to cope with her cat side. Dr. Exeter was very swoon-worthy, he's so conflicted with his feelings towards Mia. She's his charge, and he's always regarded her as such, but now she's grown into a sultry, beautiful young lady and he doesn't quite know how to handle her anymore. He is adorably protective of her though. Mia was brilliant, she's very straight forward and determined. She's had a crush on Exeter for so long, but it's developed from a childhood infatuation into something a lot more. I loved watching these two develop their relationship, they have a solid foundation as they're close already. When Exeter starts teaching Mia how to control her cat nature through sexual release, everything changes. The book was also really well paced, it was never dull and there was always something grabbing my attention! Whether it was the mission to find Phaeton and rescue him from Prospero, or the steamy, budding relationship between Exeter and Mia. I'm so intrigued about what is to come in this series...seriously there better be more. Especially with Prospero, I want to know what exactly his real story is. I wish I'd read the first 2 books before this, but I'll definitely be reading the series in order soon! *I received a review copy from the publisher, via NetGalley, for my honest review. Thank you!

    I received this story from NetGalley for an honest review. I absolutely adore this series about America Jones and the illustrious Phaeton Black. This is what I call a Paranormal Romance with touches of the erotic. Phaeton, a womanizing black heart, and America, a feisty headstrong woman, make quite the pair in this steampunk inspired novel. Jillian Stone can certainly write an enchanting tale with a lighthearted Holmesesque feel to it.

I absolutely adore this series about America Jones and the illustrious Phaeton Black. This is what I call a Paranormal Romance with touches of the erotic. Phaeton, a womanizing black heart, and America, a feisty headstrong woman, make quite the pair in this steampunk inspired novel. Jillian Stone can certainly write an enchanting tale with a lighthearted Holmesesque feel to it. If you have yet to read the previous novels, do not start with this one. Not only will you be dreadfully lost, but you will be spoiled for the previous novels as well. This installment finds Phaeton trapped elsewhere by the devious Domina Valour. With America being pregnant she needs all the help she can obtain to find her missing lover and with the help of Phaeton's friend, Dr. Exeter, she's more likely to do so. This novel doesn't follow Phaeton and America as closely as the others have, but the dashing and frank Exeter and his charge, the compellingly sexy Mia. Mia is having difficulties with her growing cattiness. As a panther shifter Mia's beast wants to come out more often and it seems to want only one thing-sex. Exeter is more than happy to come to her rescue in the form of sexual release and the hot scenes between the two will leave you wanting to fan yourself. As an unedited copy there were quite a few problems with the story, but I muddled through happily because the sheer beauty of Stone's writing. I cannot finish this review without saying plot is not without its own awesomeness. Throughout the story no matter how many enticing encounters took place between the good doctor and Mia, you never lost sight of the story. Something sadly lacking in many stories today. This novel did not end with a cliffhanger as did the other Paranormal Inverigator books. It wraps up this installment quite nicely, but I do hope to see this series continue. While I love Phaeton and America, Mia and Exeter are just as engrossing and deserve more than one visit. 4 Stars.

Jersey Blood, a seraph shifter, and one of the Nightshades (bodyguard) is giving him some information to help her adjust. The instructions are intimate and while Mia is all for it, Exeter is wary and uncomfortable with his feelings toward her. The group is off to Paris as they believe Phaeton is in the area being held against his will. They uncover trouble from sources that they believe are truly evil as they try to save him, yet are they sure which side everyone is on? With America about to give birth and their lives in danger, the group risks everything to find Phaeton before it is too late.

    This was possibly one of the most intricate plots I have ever read, mixing steampunk, science fiction, paranormals, dimensional travel and romance with several erotic scenes.

Totally delightful, I did not find many places where I felt uninformed about characters or events that happened in the first two books, although it was apparent that connections were long standing and complex. Fortunately, much of the missing pieces filled in as the story progressed, with some tidbits of information supplied by the author to reacquaint readers of the series with characters who are reappearing. Precise language and luscious details give the feel of the Victorian setting, while phrasing, innovative gadgets and highly erotic scenes make the story fresh and modern. Cleverly mixing science fiction, steampunk, historical details and paranormal creatures further add to the enjoyment of the story. Exeter and Mia are beautifully described and developed: as they delve further into teaching Mia to control her panther, the sexual tension between the two creates several steamy scenes. The conflict Exeter experiences between what he feels, and what he believes is appropriate to feel has shattered his detached and clinical façade: and makes for some interesting and quite comical reactions on Mia’s part. In the struggle to reunite America and Phaeton the action and tension are neatly presented and the story does manage to neatly wrap up many of the loose ends, although I still see potential for further development of all the character storylines, and I will be reading the first two in this series to fill in the details about the characters I only know superficially.

The plot centers around the disappearance of said Phaeton Black, whose lover America Jones is about to give birth to his child, and his colleagues' attempts to retrieve him from the clutches of the evil wizard Prospero. Along the way, Dr. Exeter has to deal with his ward, Mia's, rather delicate condition. She is a shapeshifter, and her shifts have come at the most inopportune moments. Mia must learn to control the shifts or they will control her life. But how, oh, how, might those shifts be controlled? How might her inner panther be dominated? And who will conduct Mia's education in these new control techniques? Will she be able to control herself in order to help those she cares about? There were some elements of the book that echoed scenes from other novels I've read. For example, the mechanical insects reminded me of the ladybugs in Gail Carriger's novels. There were other aspects that reminded me of Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices trilogy. The part where Mia and Exeter attend a rather interesting party reminds me of another book I read not too long ago, The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (volume 1). If you are offended by erotica, then this book is not for you. I don't read erotica just for the sake of reading erotica, but if it's thrown in there and actually adds something to the plot, I don't mind. In this case, I have to say it added an interesting twist to the plot. Overall, I thought it was a fun read. I have not read the other books in the series, and I must confess to being somewhat lost at times due to the many references to the characters' previous adventures. However, I don't think this should keep anyone from reading this book if given the opportunity.

    The Miss Education Of Dr. Exeter is the 3rd book in the Paranormal Investigators series. I have to say, it probably shouldn't be read as a stand alone, however I did read it that way, only I wish I hadn't. There were a lot of characters that I really didn't know well. That didn't stop me from really loving Exeter and Mia and their smoking hot relationship.

Truthfully Mia and Dr. Exeter kept my attention through the whole book and when it was done, I pretty much needed a cold shower. Mia is a shapeshifter and Dr. Exeter is helping her deal with her shifting. She shifts into a panther and well, Dr. Exeter's name for her when she's in her other form is well...uh yeah..he calls her Pussy. I found that rather amusing. But it isn't the stuff that amuses me that kept me turning the pages, it was how he kept the kitty at bay with orgasms that just left me panting and meowing just a bit. The chemistry between these two characters is electric. Mia is such a fantastic heroine. She's younger than Exeter but she's fiesty and she really knows what she wants and she can be pretty demanding. But it isn't all about sex. One of the best scenes in the book is when she helps America give birth, with some telepathic aid from Exeter. It was great getting to know these characters, but I'm definitely going to have to read the first two books and probably this one again, so that everything is clear to me.

The great thing about this story is you don't have to be worry about being to lost. I did enjoyed this story. I must say that it was feisty romp of a read. The most important thing to remember is they are looking for Phaeton who happens to be in a bit of a pickle. Other than that the story does focus on Mia and Exeter. Yes, they have an unique relationship. Mia would like Exeter become more than her guardian, but Exeter doesn't want to cross that line. However, Mia is a bit unique and needs help controlling her inner feline. Yep, that does complicate things and who better than to guide than Exeter. So, here is the bottom line: Yes, there is some steamy sex, but along with some witty dialogue. Plus, they need to save Phaeton Black. I actually enjoyed how Mia bates Exeter. So, if you are looking for something a little different with some steamy sex scenes, I would say checkout The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter. Now I need to go back read the first two books.

    In this series, book three is the breaker for me. As much as I thought I was interested in the character of Dr. Exeter, his story did nothing for me.

The addition of Prospero as the Outremer wizard who is holding Phaeton captive adds another perplexing entity to the cast of characters. Is he really as bad as he touted to be? Well, he did capture Phaeton.... But what is he really after? Yes, the plot continues, but the relationship of Dr. Exeter and Mia gets in the way. In this book, there is such a thing as too much sex. These two highly intelligent characters devolved into nothing more than a lustful couple of kids. Where America and Phaeton are sexy and witty, Exeter and Mia are merely hot to trot. Ms. Stone could have used their intelligence to endear the characters to me. The suggestion being that intelligent conversation of these characters could have a) added to the actual plot of the book and b) made the sex scenes a lot more interesting. So, a disappointing book for me, as I enjoyed the first two books in the series so much. Who needs new lead characters? Bring back Phaeton and America!

    The world Ms. Stone has created in this book was an amalgamation of some of my favorite elements in ficiton: steampunk, erotic romance, and PNR. This wonderful blending, along with a fast paced wit, made for a quick and entertaining read. In a way, this story reminded me of the BBC version of Sherlock (you know I love me some Cumberbatch); the back and forth banter, the esoteric references to people and events, and the intelligence of the main characters.

The Miss Education of Dr. Exeter makes for the third title in the series and there were numerous references to events, key ones at that, happened previously. I had only read the first book before attempting this one and it didn’t help my understanding of this story at all. I think it would have been better if I had read the second title, The Moonstone and Miss Jones, instead. This book read more like an extension of an existing storyline instead of an new one. I would recommend at least reading that book if not the first one before trying this one. *review copy provided by publisher via NetGalley

Though the story tends to focus on Exeter and Mia, the rest of cast does not get lost along the way. Once again, Jillian Stone does a wonderful job of world building and creating vivid characters. It was easy to get sucked into the story and be rewarded with a high energy, erotically thrilling ride.

    I admit that I did not expect that in the third book there were other main characters instead of Phaeton and America, that somehow I also missed ... The focus of the story should revolve around looking for Phaeton, the reality is that involves the relationship between Dr.Exeter and Mia, that we can say change the terms of their bond. At this point the trilogy might end up here or maybe continue, so we'll see.

Although I found the book difficult to understand, I really enjoyed it. It is very well written; there is mystery and action, excellent characters that draw you in to their lives and it makes you look forward to future books in the series. I can’t decide if it needs a glossary or not, to explain some of the weird and wonderful things mentioned in the book?
