Wicked Temptation

Nemesis Unlimited, #3

Danger, secrets, and high passion reign supreme in Zoe Archer’s historic romantic suspense novel.

Not only has Bronwyn Parrish been widowed, she has been left near penniless too, thanks to the double-dealings of her late husband’s business manager. Now a woman of little means, Bronwyn—who has only known the posh world of the upper crust, has little choice but to accept the aid of the handsome yet dangerous stranger who promises to help her regain what was lost.

Marco Black, Bronwyn’s mystery man, is both a spy and a member of Nemesis Unlimited, and while he may have had qualms about taking on the cause of a Society woman, he finds that there is more to his client than meets the eye. This new discovery has Marco, a man content with passing trysts, wanting to grow closer to Bronwyn. Although, once Marco discovers Les Grillons are the ones responsible for Bronwyn’s financial troubles, he realizes just how high the stakes are.

Can Marco find a way to reclaim Bronwyn’s money and keep her alive as well as find a way to let her in to his guarded life?

I have been in love with this series since the beginning but I have to say that "Wicked Temptation" is my all-time favorite.

Bronwyn Parrish is a heroine who should, by standards, have turned into this little mousey thing bemoaning her riches-to-rags state, although she’s strong, and willing to fight to reclaim what’s hers. She definitely has moxie and I like that in a heroine.

Marco Black was a tedious character. He was so shrouded in mystery and darkness it took a while for the light to seep through. Once I was able to get inside his character a little more, the more I found I liked him.

The plot was fast-paced with turns I was expecting. The action was well-done and the romantic chemistry sizzled from the start. What I was annoyed with was the fact so much Italian is spoken throughout the novel, and it hindered a bit of the flow.

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. 


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.

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.
