The Prosecutor’s Paramour by Lara Santiago

Evie Marsh is a mole working for the Tiberius Group. Her mission is to infiltrate Zachary Valetta’s life, hopefully seduce him, thereby getting valuable information rendering him unworthy for the job of head legal prosecutor. Zachary is mesmerized by Evie’s intelligence and beauty. The two of them begin a game of cat and mouse, ultimately forcing Zachary to make a dangerous choice. Can Evie and Zachary live and love in this futuristic society?

The Prosecutor’s Paramour is a superb prequel to Ms. Santiago’s The Wives’ Tales series. Readers will be sucked into a futuristic world where women are relegated to the role of second-class citizens. Evie proves herself a worthy adversary by keeping Zachary on his toes. Zachary’s many secrets are revealed to Evie in unexpected ways. I have a whole new appreciation for Ms. Santiago’s talent as she constantly kept this reader guessing, even though I knew the ultimate outcome!
