Award-winning author Zoë Archer returns with another novel of breathtaking suspense as Nemesis, Unlimited schemes to avenge injustice--and conquer a woman's heart--in Wicked Temptation.
FATE BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER.
Newly widowed, Bronwyn Parrish's fortune has been spent settling her late husband's debts—thanks to an unscrupulous business manager—and now there's nothing left. Society has no place for a woman without means, and with nowhere to turn, Bronwyn is lost…until, from out of nowhere, a handsome gentleman steps in and makes her an offer she can't refuse.
WILL DESIRE TEAR THEM APART?
Secrets and subterfuge are in Marco Black's blood. As one of Nemesis, Unlimited's most senior agents, Society women aren't his usual cup of tea. But Marco's sixth sense tells him that there's more to Bronwyn than meets the eye…and he wants to help the brazen beauty retrieve her lost fortune. But is his attraction to her worth the risk? His mission will lead him all the way to Les Grillons, France's most ruthless crime syndicate. Soon, Marco and Bronwyn will find themselves facing a danger that could cost them their lives—and a passion that is priceless.
"Zoë Archer's books are not to be missed!"
—USA Today bestselling author Alexandra Hawkins
Archer's third Nemesis, Unlimited romance (after Dangerous Seduction) is a well-spun tale of a late 19th-century woman's worldly awakening against the backdrop of an international struggle for justice. Widow Bronwyn Parrish is left destitute when her husband's London estate is drained to pay supposed debts that she never knew existed. Senior Nemesis agent Marco Black, more accustomed to helping members of the downtrodden lower class, is skeptical about aiding this former high society lady but agrees to help recover her stolen money. Bronwyn learns just how sheltered and privileged her life has been when the hunt for the thief leads the pair across the channel to France's most notorious criminal organizations. Impressed by Bronwyn's bravery as they sneak onto trains, run from assassins, and break into houses, Marco discovers that she is more than just another clueless aristocrat, drawing him into a much closer relationship than he expects or is ready for. Smart writing and well-drawn characters elevate this novel beyond the typical historical romance.
