Publisher's Summary

Once bitten, twice shy.

Rafe Blackstone may play the sexiest werewolf superhero to ever melt a woman's...heart...on the big screen, but Lily Hollander has already been bitten once by an actor, and once was enough. When she's fooled all over again, it's time to put that wayward heart in lockdown mode, especially once Rafe starts aiming his overprotective streak at her identical twin. Lily may seem like the softer side of the twinship, but nobody messes with her sister.

There's nothing she can do about Rafe being her temporary neighbor in the mountains above Sinful, Montana, or about being forced to witness the least impressive feats of horsemanship known to man. That doesn't mean she has to let him into her lingerie store, her heart, or any other part of her anatomy. He can just take his silver-blue wolf eyes, his rueful smile, and the rest of his gorgeous self, and...Wait, where was she again?

Oh, yeah. Are you allowed to hate your future almost-brother-in-law, if you do it really, really quietly?

Mmm ever so tempting!

This book was so much fun! I really enjoyed the first book in the series and this second one didn’t disappoint. It really liked how it dealt with how people aren’t always what they seem. Like Rafe wasn’t an arrogant mean guy and Lily got a chance to find that out and heal from her own problems.

I always love Rosalind James books because they still have that happy ending, but it’s always an interesting and unique journey.

The narration was also fantastic! The voice actress really captures the essence of each character and does accents really well.

Loved it!!

I really love Rosalind James books & audiobooks.Once I start reading or listening I can't stop until I finish. This story is no exception. My favorite thing about her writing is that family is always so important and a big part of the books. Tempting as Sin is not a continuation of book 1 Guilty as SIn but it's best if you read that one first so you can relate all the characters that are in both books. Rafe and Lily are both relatable people and you root for both of them to come out ahead. As always i look forward to the next book by Rosalind James.
Emma Wilder does such an amazing job on the narration. She's one of my favorites. The accents and male voices are so good you sometimes forget it's the same narrator.

What a ride

this story will grip you and want to make you yell at the characters and then laugh at the characters and then laugh along with the characters as well

the characters are well written and you will love some and hate others

I have enjoyed getting to know the main characters in this series and I am sure you will as well

can not wait for the next book in the series

A Twins falling for Aussie brothers tale

Overview
This is the second of a new series by Rosalind James, based in a small town in Montana. It can be read as a stand-alone book, but probably enjoyed best when followed by the first of the series, Guilty As Sin, as it begins where the previous one leaves off with a new couple - the siblings. Ms. James has written several books from the Northern Idaho area, California, and a great many from New Zealand too in her Escape series.

The Main characters
Lily Hollander is an identical twin who is a frilly, sweet and feminine small town - country-girl raising goats and chickens on a small ranch-farm and owns a lingerie store in the town of Sinful, Montana. The story opens with her visit to her sister in San Francisco, CA

Rafe Blackstone is a successful actor - and totally NOT Lily's type. When they first meet one another - neither knows their true identities, they actually know each other through their sibings, Paige and Jace (Hollander and Blackstone, respectively). They met in a bar, and used assumed names for their own reasons, then things really heat up as they realize they really like each other. Sparks fly when they "meet" again at Paige and Jace's houseboat, and they do not tell anyone else they previously met. As they get to know one another and slowly chip away at one others' mis-trust issues, they cannot fight the attraction that is building and the tension is too delicious! The sparks fly between these two as they develop an interesting and reluctant relationship.


I loved the book - it's got some suspense, some excitement and action. And of course some steamy romance too, as things really heat up between Lily and the hot actor-neighbor, Rafe. There are some very hilarious moments that will had me laughing my butt off. This is a great, funny, heart-warming read that will take you away from your world for just a short bit and fill your heart with wonderful characters and a memorable storyline. The book will stir your emotions and remind you of many great themes: the importance of family, loyalty, trust and security, and the issues surrounding foster children and elderly poor people.

There is a really sweet secondary plot line that really touched me, about a former foster child whom Lily met in her small town and sort of adopted, along with her dog. Make sure your tissues are handy! These are awesome characters to hear narrated by the very wonderful Emma Wilder. She does an amazing job transitioning between characters (including an Aussie movie star) to a little girl, Bailey, flawlessly and seamlessly. Great job Emma! It's always a pleasure to listen to her narrate.

Another great book by the gifted Rosalind James! I can't wait to read the next one in the series!

this was too TEMPTING!!!!!

Rosalind James, brings us into a new world of romance, out of 10 being steamy, i would rate this a 7-8 in that dept a full on 10 with romance, the Story is about Lily who been hurt one to many times, until Raft comes along , the narration by Emma Wilder deserves a shout out. Rosalind James allowed you to be able to close your eyes and see the story played out, Emma Wilder brought it's play out to life with her diverse vocal skills!!!!!!
if your looking still for the beach read, this is def it.
As i said it takes you from brut to full on cant live without Lily's Love to, Lily learning what you see on the outside is not always how it is, that there is happy ever after. that there peer pressure with Adults as much as in the kids world .
thumbs up Mrs James and Emma Wilder for the great escape for 14 hours!!!!! the time blew by as it was a straight listen,unbelievable talent. thank you for the journey, it was well worth the wait........ soooooo now when will 3 be out lol

Definitely enjoyed...

Tempting as Sin is book two in the Sinful, Montana series. This is Rafe and Lily's story. This story hooked me, and I kept going until I was done. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator, and I definitely recommend it.

A werewolf and a lingerie shop owner meet in a bar

Pretty great lead in, right? I loved reading this book and I really loved listening to it, as well! I am a fan of Rosalind James’s writing and love to read her books (and listen). This is a great book about loyalty and what love really looks like, romantically and within families. I love that she has Emma Wilder narrating another of her amazing books. Emma voices the characters so well, you truly do feel like there are people speaking and thinking rather than just one person reading the book aloud . I really recommend this book, both for reading and for listening.

Enjoyable listen!

Tempting as Sin is the second book in Rosalind James's Sinful Montana Book 2. It is standalone, but I would recommend reading the first book in the series as you would get more out of this book. Tempting as Sin is a worthy follow up to Book 1, Guilty as Sin. with great characters and great chemistry. It is fun and quick listen.

The characters really make this story, and they each make you care for them as individuals. While listening to this book, I didn't even think that I was in the mood for a book with kid as a central character. James's writing changed my mind within minutes, and soon Bailey and her story were equally as important to me as the central relationship of Lily and Rafe. Equally impressive is how Lily and Rafe both are always relatable and never untouchable as characters. It was very rewarding as a listener to watch them grow and find happiness.

Narrator Emma Wilder gives another great performance. She disappears into the story and the characters.

Tempting as Sin with a dash of Sweetness!

This is the second book in the Sinful, Montana series by Rosalind James. It can be listened by itself. but I definitely recommend listening to the first book!
"Once bitten, twice shy.
Rafe Blackstone may play the sexiest werewolf superhero to ever melt a woman’s...heart...on the big screen, but Lily Hollander has already been bitten once by an actor, and once was enough. When she’s fooled all over again, it’s time to put that wayward heart in lockdown mode, especially once Rafe starts aiming his overprotective streak at her identical twin. Lily may seem like the softer side of the twinship, but nobody messes with her sister.
There’s nothing she can do about Rafe being her temporary neighbor in the mountains above Sinful, Montana, or about being forced to witness the least impressive feats of horsemanship known to man. That doesn’t mean she has to let him into her lingerie store, her heart, or any other part of her anatomy. He can just take his silver-blue wolf eyes, his rueful smile, and the rest of his gorgeous self, and...Wait, where was she again?"

Just from the synopsis you can tell that there is going to be some heated arguments between the characters.
I loved Rafe and Lily's chemistry throughout this story. This story is very different from the first: in the first book you got action and trying to figure out who did what and in this book you get more of the drama in a story line. In this story without getting into to much detail and spoiling it; you meet Rafe Blackstone heading to SF to meet his brother and future sister-in-law. He stops at a hotel to get out of the rain and he meets a lady at the bar(who we later find out is Lily). They have a good night drinking and heading to a Karaoke where they both perform. Rafe doesn't want the night to end but Lily decides they are going to fast and calls it a night. The next morning Rafe heads to his brother's house and sees Lily there he believes that Lily was actually Paige (his brother's girlfriend) and tries to get rid of her until his brother and Paige show up after a run. Rafe sees his mistake but it is too late and Lily thinks the worst of him since he is an actor like her ex husband who was the worst of worst.
Rafe wants to make everything right but knows he has to go slowly with Lily to earn her trust.
That is all I am going to say...you just have to believe that each story Rosalind James writes is amazing and shows how she is able to create a story that make you root for the good guy to get their happy ever after!

Emma Wilder does an amazing job in capturing each character and making them unique.

Great Summer listen

A really engaging waltzer of a story. A great summer listen.

This book is full tension and emotion which comes through a really well paced story. Rafe and Lily really have to learn to thrust in love again.

Following a betrayal by his ex fiancé Rafe needs to hide away until the drama passes enter his brother Jace's cabin, close to Lily's cottage in Sinful.

Through in some twin misunderstanding, a trip to Australia and eight year old Bailey and her stray mutt Chuck and you have got yourself one hell of journey for both Lily and Rafe.

Get ready to fall in love with Bailey and Chuck, Lily and Rafe aren’t to bad either.
Really great summer listen
