Ni fu ni fa, la verdad
Leo esta saga porque me gusta la erótica histórica, pero tampoco lo encuentro muy erótico.
Sí, el deseo es repentino y y es verse y sufrir y estar todo el día "preparados" pero las escenas hot ni son gran cosa ni son tantas.
La trama no ha estado mal, aunque me ha resultado tan previsible que al final casi me cabreo y todo.
La parte romántica ni la veo, cuando se enamoran las parejas si a los dos días de verse durante 10 minutos ya se aman con locura???

What an absolute gem of a book, I loved it from start to finish – it was one that I wanted to finish to find the answer to the mystery, even though I had guessed and that I did not want to finish because I loved the characters so much.

At the start of the book we have Marguerite Piccard and Philippe (Marquis de St Martin) together, she is his mistress and they love each other very much but someone wants them apart. He threatens them, then Philippe is attacked and almost killed, along comes anothe

Another interesting storyline.
Another engaging plot twist.
Another off the charts attraction.

Way to end this Georgian series of books! I've enjoyed all of them. The cloak and dagger and the intrigue had me at the edge of my seat in this book. More so than the others. It worked so well because at the core of it all are the unique stories of not just one love story but really three.
The Mom's story was heart wrenching.

I love Sylvia Day for wrapping all 3 stories up for me in a way that I thought t

Bayılıyorum bu yazara..Diğer serisini Crossfire'i henüz okuyamadım.Amacım arka arkaya okumak...Fakat farklı tarzda yazdığı historcallerine hastayım..Başlarda biraz durağan gibi gelse de çok severek okudum..Birbirlerine çok benzeyen ikiz kardeşlerin casusluk ile işlenmiş macerası..Anneleri,babaları işin içinde ve bir de karizmatik Simon Quinn var..

I love Sylvia Day.
As a great time reading this story. Happy to know hat Simon got his HEA after all.
Stroking blue eyes, tall, handsome, and great lover !!!! What else could you ask for?

Oh Simon I love you !!!!
Simon Quinn works for Eddington as an agent for the crown. He is known for his abilities as a lover.

He meets Lynette Rousseau who is looking for her supposed dead twin sister Lysette. He mistakes her for Lysette whom he knows is a cold calculating woman from working with her in the past but then realizes that they are different women.

Lysette has lost her memory and works undercover for Desjardins and she is assigned to uncover information from Mr. James whom works for Ben Franklin. Lysette get
I don't really know what to make of this novel. The plot was so intriguing and the characters so individual, and yet it felt so rushed and so shallow that it never came together.

I wish this novel had been written by someone like Sidney Sheldon, who wouldn't have been afraid to make it 500 or 600 pages long and just really flesh it out. Someone liked SHeldon would have 'books' within the novel. A book for Marguerite and Saint Martin, a book for Lysette and a book for Simon and Lynette, with a fin

Creo que fue tanto lo que quiso abarcar la autora y darle un cierre a la serie que se hizo bolas. De la historia de las 3 parejas, la única que me gusto fue la de Phillippe y Marguerite, con ellos el comienzo estuvo excelente, muy pasional y excitante; con las otras parejas todo fue muy rapido e inverosimil. Me hubiese gustado que la trama fuera más estructurada e interesante porque el final, para mi, fue demasiado simple.

Diğer kitaplara göre oldukça farklı geldi. Simonu daha farklı bekliyordum özelikle tutkulu anlamda ama beni şaşırttı. Konu olarak ise başta hiç bir şey anlamadım konuya odaklanmada zorluk yaşadım belkide çeviriden bilmiyorum ama günün üçüncü kitabı olduğu için de olabilir .neyse kitap idare eder diyebilirim çok beğenmedim.
3.5 stars rounded up!

Very enjoyable conclusion to the Georgian series! Would have been 4.5 stars but for the somewhat confusing layout of the story, with several time jumps and the multiple love stories told. I read this book for a re-read and challenge which required a main character to have a name with a "Q"~ and what a lovely Q it was! I actually didn't remember any of the plot as I was "re-reading" this, and I may have actually confused this book with another one.

As it was, I recommend that

DON'T TEMPT ME by Sylvia Day is an exciting Georgian Erotic Historical Romance set in 1757 Paris, France. #4 in the "Georgian"series, but can be read as a stand alone. See,"Ask for It"," Passion for the Game",and "A Passion for Him".Re-issue from 2008. "Don't Tempt Me" is the story of Simon Quinn,a spy and mercenary and Lynette Baillon,who has lost her twin sister. Filled with danger,secrets,deceit,lies,vengeance,passion,and love. Lynette's twin sister,Lysette has been dead for two years,or so h ...more
This novel spans several decades and there are several primary characters. Running in the background is an evil plot by one man to destroy the life of another by taking away everything that he loves. Philippe is married but falls for Marguerite and convinces her to give up everything to live as his mistress. After receiving threats and the beating of Philippe along with the murder of some of their staff Marguerite is convinced that leaving Philippe is the only way to save him. She runs away, mar ...more
I'm pretty sure the only reason I'm giving this two stars even if I struggled to get through it without tearing each page into a million pieces is the male character, Simon, who I thought was pretty great.

So get this, after he realizes the confusion between the two twins and gets all hot and bothered with Lynette, he devises this amazingly complicated plan that somehow manages to surprise you and make you think how the actual hell he came up with it in the first place?!


But seriously, I felt lik
This was a good read but I was surprised that it did not have as many erotic scenes as I usually see from Sylvia Day. It is the story of Simon who is a spy for England. He mets Lysette but mistakes her for her twin sister Lynette. Lysette thought that Lynette was dead and she will stop at nothing to find out if her sister is really still alive.

It must be me. Sylvia Day is hugely popular so I was thrilled to pick up a bargain priced novel. I wanted to dnf this at the 1/2 mark but stuck with it - see hugely popular. The characters were predictable and the plot. The erotic bits were nicely hot, but not enough to carry the novel.

Great series

I really enjoyed this book. Interesting characters. Held my interest. Didn't know who was the bad guy until the end. Recommend this series.

This was definitely a Good read. The plotting and suspense got my psych working. Though I knew De Grenier is the culprit, and the girls were Phillipe's, I didn't suspect De Grenier is L'Espirit.

This one is about Irish mercenary Simon Quinn, who was Maria's lover in #2 of the Georgian series, and Colin's boss in #3. Still with me?

Simon is all set to retire with the fortune he's made working for the British government, only to be tricked into doing one last job - seduce the cold-hearted French assassin Lysette Rousseau. Except Lysette seems to have completely changed since their last assignment - almost as though she is another woman entirely ...

This is my favourite story out of the fou

I had not read any of the previous books in the series, so read it as a stand alone. I chose to read this book, because I have liked her others, however with a personal animosity to the French, I almost didn't get past the first chapter. However, I persevered and it paid off. The story starts in Paris in the year 1757. Marguerite Piccard, I young woman with good prospects, throws it all away to become the mistress of the married Marquis de Saint-Martin. Her mother had found her a husband to wed, ...more

Bu seri nedense ilk 100 sayfası çok karmaşık ama sonradan öyle bir açılıyor ki elinizden bırakamıyorsunuz. Bir seriyi daha bitirdik . Sylvia Day'den daha iyilerini bekliyorum :)
Güzel bir seriydi. Fazla karakterler olmasa iyiydi ama yine de okutturdu kendiini :D

Lynette Baillon is still deeply grieving the loss of her twin sister Lysette, who died in a carriage accident several years ago. She and her mother are in Paris, against her mother’s wishes, en route to a holiday in Spain to help with the healing process. Attending a ball, she meets the notoriously handsome Simon Quinn and a little of the spark Lynette has been missing since her sister’s death comes flaring back to life.

But she’s confused when Simon approaches her and speaks as if he knows her.

One of the most boring books I have read in last few years. Everytime I read 3 pages of it..I fell asleep!! The last 50 pages were fine. Atlast was able to finish it!!!

The basis of a really good plot although not in my opinion developed to its full potential! I did not realise that it was the end of a series.

This is my first book by Ms. Grasso. For the most part I liked the storyline. The characters only had their moments, though. I’m wondering if I had read any of the previous books in this series and had been introduced to these people earlier I would have liked them better before starting this book. Hard to say.

At times I liked the majority of the characters, but at other times a lot of them seemed stiff and awkward to me. I blame a lot of that on the dialogue. I was surprised at the way these ch
