Publisher's Summary

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...

New to me author and performer

This is the first Zoe Archer book I have read. I really enjoyed her captivating writing style. She has interesting, unconventional characters that complicated and kind. I love the idea behind this series, which is a group of regular working people banding together to right wrongs that can't be handled by conventional means. Not to kill, but to serve justice. They carefully confirm the crime then the punishment fits it. The romance in this book was really wonderful. I loved the tension and passion and I was crying in the end about the choices that were made...then I had happy tears (yea for a HEA!)
This was an audiobook. I can't find the rest of the series on audiobook, so I guess I have to sit for a minute and read . It's ok because I am not totally in love with this performance. Goodness knows I have heard worse, but maybe this should have been read by a man. Jack is such a strong character and I was slightly disappointed that his voice wasn't deeper.

Overall, this book was a huge surprise for me and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!

Balanced romance & revenge tale

This story was slow to build to a good all-around story, where the romance took a backseat to the revenge tale. I bought it for the romance, so it took longer for me to really get into the story. But it was written well throughout, especially if romance is secondary for you. Having the romance be sort of secondary was a plus because the romance between Eva and Jack, two mature and experienced people, then seemed understandable, slow-moving, and based on, not only lust but also understanding and respect. Prior to the actual act of sex, which didn’t occur until after the 9hour mark, there were looks and longing and finally a little touching and some kissing. Altogether, I think there was really only 1 full sex scene, maybe 2. Whatever the amount, it was sensual and romantic. But it all took a bit and was spaced out, but in a very appropriate way. The appropriateness stemmed from the fact that the two main characters, Eva & Jack, were unlikely romantic partners, which made their getting together great. And love was not spoken of until it made sense, until it was believable and not in the heat of sex.

The only negative—though mild—was that the author was redundant at times. More than I like she included the statement, “her heart contracted,” when referencing Eva’s reaction to varying aspects or behaviors of Jack.

The narrator did a very good job, and the ending of the story has no cliffhanger. Whether there’s a HEA can only be revealed if you get the story. I will be looking for other books by this author.
