"When Jack Dalton escapes from Dunmoor Prison, he has only one thing in mind—finding the nobleman who murdered his sister and making him pay. But when he reaches the inn where the Lord Rockley is rumored to be staying, three well-dressed strangers are there to meet him instead. And the pretty blonde is aiming a pistol right at his head …
Joining Nemesis, Unlimited has made Eva Warrick much more than the well-mannered lady she appears to be—one who can shoot, fight, and outsmart any man in the quest to right the injustices so often suffered by the innocent. She’s not afraid of the burly escaped convict, but she is startled by their shared attraction. She and her partners need Jack’s help to get to Rockley, but Eva finds she wants Jack for scandalous reasons all her own…"
Zoe Archer has a great first book in her new series Nemesis Unlimited. It was a great adventure story with an engaging and wonderfully thought-out plot, fascinating characters you really care about, and a hot romance that slowly builds throughout the book. Even though this book is set in the Victorian era, it was thankfully different from a lot of books out there as Zoe Archer was clever in focusing on a different aspect of the Victorian Era and from a different angle. It's gritty, no-nonsense action with a strong woman in Eva and a strong, big, Boxer sized hero in Jack Dalton.
I loved the gritty and dirty language between Eva and Jack. It fitted them. I laughed out loud many times. I really came to root for these two.
"He pulled back just enough to growl, “Goddamn, I love you. From the first time I saw you, pointing a gun at me, I knew you’d be either my death or my salvation."
Next book will be Simon's story, then Marco. I can't wait! I also look forward to the holiday novella. This is a world I can't wait to learn more about.
A great series that should not be missed! I would recommend it for readers of Romance who loves gritty, action-packed Historical Fiction. It's one of the books I've read this year that I've loved the most.
Thank you Zoe Archer for a fantastic read!
And thank you to Dhes for recommending this one; you're the best!
