Temptation | [Nora Roberts]

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?

    "No means yes?"

    Astonishingly, this was my first Nora Roberts book and I must say she does have very nice prose and a fine sense of setting. But hopefully, her other books have better characters because the love interest in this novel was disturbing to me. The male 'hero' holds his woman down - literally and becomes enraged when she stops kissing and asks for time to think. Our heroine says she's in love but you really have to wonder why. Knowing what I know - I don't think I could dance at their wedding. I hear it's an early work though so perhaps it's just dated - if that's the case, thank God for progress!

    "formula romance"

    You can definitely tell that this book is one of her earlier books. It is a true romance and if you are looking for the typical guy meets girl, loses girl, wins girl back and marries girl then this is the book for you!

    "another favorite of Nora Roberts"

    I am glad that I purchased this one. There were times in the storyline that were boring but all in all the total story was a good one and believable.

    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
