Jack Dalton grew up on the streets using his muscle and brawn to keep a roof over his head and food in his stomach. After a brief stent with burglary he honed his skills as a fighter and then as a body guard for Lord Rockley. Dalton’s sister sold the only thing she had – her body – for money and became a victim of Rockley’s cold cruelty when he killed her. After watching his sister die from her injuries Dalton makes a botched attempt to kill Rockley, but only gets himself a sentence behind bars.
With Dalton in lock up, Rockley continues his selfishness by hurting and ruining young women without a means to seek retribution. Luckily a small group called Nemesis, Unlimited has been formed to seek justice for those who cannot get it themselves. When Eva Warrick learns of the harm Rockley is causing to members of the lower classes she knows something must be done to stop him. The only former bodyguard of Rockley’s who is still alive and may be willing to share information, however is behind bars. A plan unfolds to incite Dalton to escape from prison and obtain his revenge on the man who killed his sister. However controlling this convict is going to be way more difficult than Nemesis could have ever imagined…
Eva is determined to keep her work for Nemesis and her quiet existence as a private tutor completely separate. She is good at getting justice for her clients and even better at keeping her own emotions in check. Dalton, however, is more than she bargained for. While he appears to be just the man to bring Rockley down, he also threatens to bring her carefully constructed walls down as well. With his surprising intellect, quick wit, and unnerving sensitivity to those around him he surprises her at every turn. As the danger in their latest mission increases, so does the danger to their hearts. How can a fighter and convict so quickly set her blood to boiling? Is there really any hope of a future for them if they make it out of this mission alive?
Sweet Revenge is a delightful and creative romantic suspense. Veida Dehmlow does an outstanding job as Eva, and while Jack sounds a bit cruder and more folk-like than I would have imagined him, given his background the narration probably fits him well. The narration is smooth and even making the story easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to.
