Tempt Me Not

INNOCENT PLEASURE

As a young, dashing Max Hastings, the future Duke of Bassett, had little time for Jillian Forbes, the sweet aristocratic little sister of his dearest friend. But the infectious good humor and radiant smile of the young Lady Jillian soon melted Max's resisting heart --- binding them together with the promise of loving friendship.

DIVINE TEMPTATION

The passing years have transformed Jullian into a stunning and sensuous woman, while circumstance has shattered a time-honored alliance, turning lifelong friends to bitter foes. Now Max is duty bound to smash to bits the cherished dreams of his childhood love. But Jillian has already risked much for her beloved --- her brother's wrath, her reputation, her life itself. And she is determined to let nothing extinguish the flames of her all-consuming passion which, once ignited, must burn forever.

    This book was so intense, I'm having a hard time deciding what I liked about it.A lot of angst and some cruelty that sometimes felt unsurmountable. For nearly half the book, the Hero was an ass withou...

    Tempt me not is well-written. What kept it from being a four star read for me was, (view spoiler)[ when Max (the hero) turned into a jerk by pushing the heroine and her brother away emotionally. It we...

    A romance book I really enjoyed. I like the storyline, hero, heroine and side characters. I was glad there was an epilogue. The heroine was feisty in all the nice/thoughtful ways, not a bitchy or a sp...
