Wicked Temptation (Nemesis, Unlimited #3) by Zoe Archer
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.
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.
Marco Black has been the stoic member of Nemesis Unlimited. He seems to have ice water in his veins but when he start to help Bronwyn Parrish that ice water starts to heat up. Bronwyn has that effect because she also changes. She learns to stand up for herself, to see the world in a very different way and to face danger without backing down. I loved how she grew and matured as she and Marco worked together to recover her stolen money. For Marco it is a wake up call. He did not want to help Bronwyn. He felt she was part of the problem but soon saw that she was not like others in her class. Even before her husband's death she cared about all the people around her not just those in her social class.
The two have an exciting journey to recover what was stolen from Bronwyn. It takes Marco awhile to realize what he has in Bronwyn and to let go of his past and grab a future full of love.
So far three of the Nemesis Unlimited members have found love. It will be interesting to see who is next.
