This Nemesis Unlimited installment is another exhilarating adventure romance from the multitalented Archer whose strong, inventive plots, amazing characters and jaw-dropping stories take readers’ breath away.
When Simon Addison-Shawe receives an anonymous letter detailing injustices being perpetrated on copper mine workers, he decides to handle the mission himself. Simon masquerades as a machinist hired by the company managers and meets Alyce Carr, whose fiery defense of the workers ignites his curiosity. Though Simon is the most interesting, handsome man she has ever seen, Alyce will not trust an outsider. Simon realizes he must have Alyce as an ally. Once she realizes he is a Nemesis operative she joins him. Their passion for justice is equaled by their desire for one another, yet Alyce fears the difference in their stations is too much of an obstacle. (ST. MARTIN’S, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
