Temptation

Socialite Eden Carlbough didn't expect running a girls' camp to be easy, but she never thought she'd literally be run up an apple tree by the little monsters...nor did she think she'd come crashing down into the capable arms of orchard owner Chase Elliot. Chase knew he'd caught a windfall when he looked at the woman in his arms. He didn't like being cast as the serpent, but how could he resist when she'd just offered him such forbidden fruit?

    Story
    "Light Romance"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Alyson Silverman?

    Yes, she has a variety of types of books. This one was very light, I prefer more meat to a book. If you want pure romance and not much else to a story this book is for you. The characters were likable. The romance was far fetched but, cute.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    "It is what it is". People seeking romance with a little story will like this. It was enjoyable. I prefer plot, mystery, action, romance and in depth characters that you can get vested in.


    What three words best describe Alyson Silverman’s voice?

    She did a good job with this story.


    Could you see Temptation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a life time movie.
    There are many more books that would be a better selection for a movie, Dianne Duvall's and Jeanine Frost.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a pleasant diversion.

    Story
    "Mild Temptation"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Temptation to be better than the print version?

    Don't know have not read printed version


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    predictable


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Give the male characters a more masculine voice. Especially Chaz, make him more masculine and sensual.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If the stalls could talk


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the Witness and I thought that was fantastic. This was ok, not great as the witness. I still am looking forward to reading other works by Nora Roberts and could also be the narrator. This book was ok not great.

    Story
    "Early Nora"

    I have been reading Nora Roberts since her debut with Irish Throughobred. Her books are always well written, however, her plot lines and characters have evolved with her years in writing. This is a simple story, chronicling the strength of the heroine. The love interest is perhaps, typical of stereotype macho male of the 1980s.
    The narrator creates each of the different characters very believably. The story flowed well in her voice. For a simple love story, this is worth a listen.

    "Don't be Tempted..."
    What would have made Temptation better?

    Believeable characters and a male hero who understands no means no.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Just found this whole premise too formulaic.


    What three words best describe Alyson Silverman’s performance?

    Sounds too young

    "Loved "going to camp"!"

    Definitely enjoyed this story and experiencing life at a girls camp in the northeast. The romance was one very typical of Nora Roberts and that's a good thing.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    Story
    "Feel Good Story!"

    This one of Nora's happily ever after stories. I loved the lil girls in this story. Usually its boys getting up to physical mischief, however there was an adventerous one in the group, who will probably one day be head of something. The story is formulaic, and yes it was predictable but the journey was cute and interesting.

    Story
    "the worst Nora Roberts book I have read"
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Alyson Silverman?

    Yes, hopefully this is one of the few that are hard to finish. Most of the Nora Roberts' that I have read, combine mystery and suspense with an underline romance that enhances the story. Temptation is a silly romance only.


    Has Temptation turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I have read maybe 20 of her books and I think only 4 were like temptation not worth it.
    Some of her books are wonderful interesting and keep you guessing.


    What does Alyson Silverman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I do not know. She is a good reader but the story did not help.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Some reality. To far fetch.


    Any additional comments?

    I like books that the story is possible. I do not like books with a lot of descriptive sex scene.
    I like a books with a mystery, a riddle, a lesson learn or historical background.
