Wicked Temptation: A Nemesis, Unlimited Novel
Book 3
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.

 Zoe welcome back to The Reading Frenzy.
Thanks so much for having me!

Tell us about #3 in your Nemesis Unlimited series, Wicked Temptation.
Nemesis, Unlimited is a secret organization dedicated to righting wrongs.  I basically call them “Leverage/old school A-Team in Victorian England.”  This time, they’re helping a young society widow help retrieve her lost fortune, which is a slightly unusual assignment for them, since they usually assist the lower classes in obtaining justice, but Bronwyn is much more than meets the eye, as Nemesis agent Marco learns.

In a few words why would you want Marco Black, your hero in this novel for your lover?
Marco is the consummate spy.  He’s diabolically clever, ruthless, and, beneath his rigidly controlled exterior, deeply sensual.  Nothing sexier than a smart man applying his brains to lovemaking!

In our last interview you said you had contracted for three books in the series.
Will there be more?
WICKED TEMPTATION will be the final book in the NEMESIS UNLIMITED series.  It’s been so fun to write!

Zoe I see from the homepage from your website youre still sporting boots.
We talked a bit about this obsession passion for them in your last conversation with me.
How many pairs of boots do you own?
That’s a very good question!  I haven’t counted, and the prospect seems too daunting, which gives you something of an idea as to how many I have.

Zoe, whats the one thing about all your heroines that impresses you the most?
Even if they don’t start out as kick-ass women, they grow into their strength, so that, by the time the book ends, they really can kick some serious butt.

Zoe you received a 4 ½ stars Top Pick from RT Reviews Magazine for Wicked Temptation. Congratulations! Editorial accolades are great but you told us in your last visit that it’s really your readers opinions that matter.
What’s the nicest thing a reader has ever said about one of your novels?
I can’t recall specifics, but I know I’m touched when a reader feels that my book really touched or spoke to them.  I was very proud of SKIES OF GOLD: The Ether Chronicles, because the heroine is missing a leg, and a nurse who deals with patients who have undergone radical changes in their bodies said I did a respectful and realistic depiction of what it’s like to experience this.

Zoe thanks for answering these questions. Good Luck with the latest novel.
Do you have events listed on your website for fans?
I will be attending the Romance Writers of America’s National Conference in San Antonio in July.  It’s very exciting, because SKIES OF GOLD has been nominated by the RWA for a RITA.  It’s an honor to be nominated, and I’m looking forward to wearing a fancy dress and hanging out with my friends. 

Zoë Archer is  two-time RITA award nominated romance author who thinks there's nothing sexier than a man in tall boots and a waistcoat. As a child, she never dreamed about being the rescued princess, but wanted to kick butt right beside the hero. She now applies her master's degrees in Literature and Fiction to creating butt-kicking heroines and heroes in tall boots. She is the author of the acclaimed NEMESIS UNLIMITED series, as well as the BLADES OF THE ROSE series and the paranormal historical romance series, THE HELLRAISERS. She and her husband, fellow romance author Nico Rosso, created the steampunk world of THE ETHER CHRONICLES together. Zoë and Nico live in Los Angeles.
