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
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

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

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 borrowed this Kindle book from my local library. Honestly, $11.49 for an ebook (and a fairly short one at that) is insane!

This is the third of the Georgian books that I have read. This one was better than Ask For It, but I didn't love it as much as Passion For The Game.

Simon (lady Winter's former lover from Passion For The Game) gets his own story this time. I loved Simon. He's smart, tough, sexy and has an inherent goodness about him. He is embroiled in a mystery that involves a woman (Lysett
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
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.
This was the best of the series. Wish the books were somehow brought together in the end.
This is book four in the Georgian series.

WOWZA! This was incredibly intense and suspenseful conclusion (I believe) to a spellbinding series!

The gist: Simon finally gets his chance at love! Simon has been a spy for England since Maria and Christopher got married. We met Lysette, his French counterpart, in Passion For Him. When Simon left France to follow Colin to England, Cartland ratted Simon and all his men out to the French authorities. Now Simon has arranged a prisoner trade – Lysette for all
I didn't expect this novel to be my favorite but it is, out of the four books in this series.

We meet Simon Quinn in the second book, and we could see how closely connected the 2nd until 4th books are. I didn't care much for his character because most of the hot guys fall into a certain category. There's a template for drool-worthy and panty-wetting heroes such as: a ripped body, a sexy accent, height, mysterious past, dominant in nature and of course good in bed.

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.

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

"Espionage, Revenge and betrayal ... and more"

From the last few books, I have loved Simon Quinn. He is a good man and he is always willing to fight for what he believes in. Lysette is stuck in a situation that she has no control over and no memory past two years. This book has to be the best mystery/ adventure of the series. I was caught up in the espionage and wanted to know everything about the families and what was going to happen next. This book is work the listen too, but if you are only i

A prescindere dal mio debole per la nota Crossfire Trilogy, secondo me Sylvia Day riesce sempre a scrivere romanzi molto roventi e allo stesso tempo gradevoli nella lettura.

Prendiamo anche questo Don’t tempt me, ambientato nella Parigi del 1757 e del 1780.
Si parte con un prologo intrigante e si salta a vent’anni dopo, nel bel mezzo di una guerra di spie tra Francia ed Inghilterra, con una giovane quanto spietata assassina, un mercenario irl

It was funny to me that book 3 in this series, I was looking forward to the least and absolutely went nuts over. It was the opposite with this one. I absolutely loved Simon in book 2, and couldn't wait to learn more about him and delve into his secrets, but for some reason, this one left me a little flat in the end.

It started out all hot and steamy, and I was really into him, but then the dialogue kind of seemed to fizzle on me. I actually wound up more interested in Lysette's story, rather than
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

I am a hard critic. With that being said this is a very well written book that will not leave you disappointed for certain. I only rate it 3 stars because for me, only books that I long to read over and over again get the coveted 4-5 star ratings. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Another fantastic book from Sylvia Day.

Noteworthy moments and quotes from book:

As her feet were bared, gooseflesh spread across her skin. Simon must have taken note because he paused, his hands cupping the backs of her ca
Didn't like it as much as I'd hoped. The ending was predictable, and I didn't really connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. Don't know if it was because my attention was split between 3 separate romances, as well as a nefarious plot - I have to assume that was it.

Also, I really hate when 2 characters' names are similar - either that they sound similar (Lynn, Brynn), or have the same first letter and sound (e.g. Duke, Drake), but this book was spectacularly bad for that. The
This book SO DID not suck. Got a little mixed up with the twins a couple of time but it was not in a cheese stupid way, the thing that got me was that the girls names were only off by one letter but I'm guessing the author Sylvia Day just wanted us to put ourselves in the book and see how much alike the two women were... lol.

I did think Simon was going to end up with Lysette based on who she was in the other book "A passion for him" but after knowing who she REALLY was it understanding how he e

The adventure, mystery & the romance in 4 books are exquisite. I love how Day incorporates the 70’s into her stories. It’s something new (at least for me) & I like how she writes the sexy & romantic scenes in a very sensual & genuine manner. I mean there’s lust of course, but it is so genuine that it makes you feel that there’s so much more in it. Not just lust but LOVE. I know, it’s weird. I know you can separate the two but in erotic romance novels,

This author was my reading group's read this author of/for this month in which I trying to read all Christmas stories and this is definitely not that lol. As a new reader of this author I will say that the story was interesting. Historical in nature the book is set in France (with an intro beginning in England) where there's plenty of action and intrigue. I had some problem getting up to snuff with the interaction of all the characters as there is a lot of the past (20 years before) involved wit ...more

Glad I listen to this while at work cause If I spent time reading it is be bummed. Just didn't cut it for me. But then again had I known it was historical I would of steered clear.
Anita Byars
A page turner with a powerful story filled with danger, secrets, deceits, revenge,passion and love. Also erotic. Kept you engrossed to keep up with the story. Great story.
Jade Wilson
This was the first book in the series I read. I liked the story line though and have read other books by Sylvia day so may read the rest of the series.
Sephora Garnet
Great story put not enough actual book.

The book it too short altogether. It leaves a lot of questions open and seems a little as if the writer had a limit of pages to keep or was afraid to write too much. The characters are very interesting and I would have liked to read more about their feelings and thoughts and their history. There are three love stories connected with one huge intrigue.
Also the end is a little abrupt.

There could have been much more made of it because I really liked the plot!
Val Cohen
It was a quick read. What intrigued me the most was the long prologue and the abrupt switch of characters.
