A hardened mercenary as adept in bed as in battle, Simon Quinn can have any woman he wants, but he prefers those who know the rules of the game. That way it’s easier to leave them behind.…
Can't be avoided.
But Lysette Rousseau is one female he can’t figure out. Beautiful, sensual, seductive, she should be the perfect match for Simon, yet something about her ties him in knots. Bold and manipulative one time, sweetly innocent the next, she is an enigma bound to bring trouble…impossible to resist.

"Boldly passionate, scorchingly sexy." (Booklist on The Stranger I Married)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Ms Day I love love love all your books and cannot wait for the next one to be released...... but do you realise I can't get my work done properly, my family's living on take-outs and I've now become an insomniac. If you like sexy Georgian romance listens then my tale shows you just how addictive this series is as once you start listening you just won't want to stop.
This is another captivating story but this time it's about an evil villain, mistaken identity, three romances - one's heartbreaking, one's fiery and one's about forgiveness. They all have passion, tension, deception, danger, seduction, betrayal and lots and lots of sex by brilliant characters that you sympathise and empathise with. Not really a stand alone listen as most of the characters have parts in previous books.
Worth a credit? Yes, but as I've said before, they are all very reasonably priced so splash your cash sit back and enjoy. But a word of warning - get all your work done first and pre-prepare your meals!!
This book is fine if you don't mind the following:
1. A complicated storyline
2. A further complication of French names that are slightly similar (twins called Lynette and Lysette who get confused for each other and you as a listener get confused even though you never see them! also two important male characters De Garnier and De Jardin... these sound slightly similar to me)
3. A narrator who puts an inflection on every single sentence she says. Argh
4. Several romances going on at the same time, none of them fully developed in a convincing way.
I love Sylvia Day, but sometimes she does not develop the romance in a satisfying manner, and this was one of those cases where there was too much else going on in the story, and too many different romances... I would have loved to see what happened to both twin sisters in more detail, rather than hear all about the other elements of the plot in such detail.
I read all sorts of novels, not just romances, and it is my belief that very few romance authors do a good job of the "side story". Sylvia Day, Nora Roberts and Lisa Kleypas all SOMETIMES succeed - but this book was not an example of that.
Justine Eyre is a wonderful narrator and makes all the Georgian books come to life. I would defiantly recommend.
I enjoy all the Georgian series, I can't put them down. I need to pace myself, I have her last book to read and will be listening this weekend.
The multiple levels of intregue and numerous characters, interwoven to provide an absolutely wonderful plot.
I have not found a romance/erotica that compares to Don't Tempt Me. Multiple plots and multiple couplings leave this book on a level of its own!
Justine Eyre's narration brought the characters to life. I could not have imagined such a varying of voices and accents.
The culmination of the drama had me on the edge of my (car) seat! I was thankful for traffic, so that I did not have to sit in the driveway to finish. My husband would have interupted and I would have been angry.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
i enjoyed this series by Sylvia Day but i think i enjoyed the last book best, not near as much sex in it compared to the 3rd book but more normal or believable. i enjoyed following all the characters through out the series and all in all it was a good story from book to book once i got past the narrator but to be truthful by the end of the 4th book the narrator no longer annoyed me. don't know if it was because i was used to her by then but it kind of scared me, maybe i'm listening to too may audible books!
After starting this book adventure based on my long drives, it has become an obsession, a method for relaxation and enjoyment.
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 interested in the sex, this book carries more weight on the plot than the exploits. But there is the same chemistry and intense love affair that you would find in Sylvia's books.
I enjoyed every minute of this book. I have listened to it more than once now and is on my read again list. I have to say that Justine Eyre's ability to perform in many accents and provide such emotion through the words is truly a gift. She is one of my favorite narrator. Thanks to Sylvia Day and Justine Eyre for their brilliant collaboration.
I thought the book was hard to listen to, actually stopped to listen for a while
I'll liked that they change everything
Not my favorite
I don't going to lissten to i again
I did not think I would be into Simon’s story from hearing a little about him and Maria in the previous book but boy was I wrong! I really loved this story and Simon. SD has got it and flaunts it all over the place with each and every novel she brings out.
I like books that are a part of a series, we get to know the characters as friends.
Not sure that I have one in this book.
Turn it off but I chugged on through.
Out of the four books this is my least favorite. I found myself constantly stopping and having to replay parts. So many of the names are similar: eddington, edward - lissette, lynette, etc. I had trouble following each story line although they all ended up weaving into one as the end there were about 9 characters I was trying to follow at once, all doing different things and some that had no bearing on the story line. There are two prologues. Several things that were never answered and characters that switch places and you have no clue that they are not who the author says they are. Not an enjoyable book. This is one that I would suggest that the author get new friends to critique her story before sending it to her editor or get a new editor.
There was so much going on, too many characters, too many characters whose names sounded similar and too many French names that I couldn't keep straight. The story was so convoluted that it was difficult to track and by the end I found myself just waiting for it to be over. Sigh.
"Absolutely brilliant x"
This is without doubt one of my favourite Sylvia day novels. The whole Georgian collection has been brilliant, but this one is the best. I admit I was confused for the first hour not knowing how the first chapter was anything to do with Simon and the rest of the book. Just keep reading and all will be explained by the end. With great plot twists and the usual hot romance scenes, this book had me enthralled to the very end x
I didnt like the time it was set in and to obvious story that had some complicated twists put in that did enhance the story
I loved the cross fire stuff but this was disappointing
