Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lynette Baillon’s twin sister, Lysette, died in a carriage accident. At least that was what Lynette believed until a sexy stranger at a scandalous masked ball in Paris called her Lysette. Simon Quinn’s plans for notorious assassin Lysette Rousseau were simple. Simon was going to give her to the French in exchange for some of his men who were being held prisoner. When Lynette discovers that her sister is still alive, she is determined to do whatever it takes to be reunited with her twin. Dangerous liaisons and deceptions are the key ingredients in the latest addition to Day’s sexy, espionage-steeped Georgian historical-romance series. --John Charles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Born into poverty, Simon Quinn has made his way in this world with his fists and his considerable charm. Those talents made him the perfect undercover agent for England, hence his recruitment into the covert organization.

But Simon tires of living the life of a spy, and finds he is ready to retire. He has just one last mission before he is free of his commitments - trade his captive, the French spy Lysette Rousseau, to their French adversaries in exchange for the lives of his men.

But his superiors want to know why the French are agreeable to such an uneven trade, and they assign him one more mission - to watch the mysterious Lysette and ferret out her secrets.

But something is different about Lysette... Simon has never been attracted to her - until now. Instead of cold and dangerous, this woman is sweet and beguiling. It is almost as if they were two completely different women...

From the moment Sylvia Day first introduced the character of Simon Quinn in Passion for the Game, I have wanted to know more about this wickedly intriguing man! Bless Sylvia Day's historical loving little heart (that's a good `bless your heart', not the bad kind - lol), she did not keep us waiting too very long for Simon's story, and when she finally delivered the goods, the resulting tale was well worth the wait.

Indeed, I completely understand now why this book was delayed until after A Passion For Him. Simon and Lysette play such an integral part in that story, and it really sets both the stage and the mood very effectively for Don't Tempt Me. Even so, readers new to these books should have no trouble at all jumping right in with Don't Tempt Me without reading the previous books in Sylvia Day's Georgian Series.

DON'T TEMPT ME is the story of Simon and Lynette, two young lovers whose passion knows no bounds. They both realize that because of differences in their backgrounds and social status they cannot plan for a future together, but even more important at present is simply staying alive.

Simon Quinn is not a man to be ignored. Lynette Rousseau can attest to this as the two exchange heated glances across a crowded ballroom floor. Lynette knows Simon's reputation of being a relentlessly seductive rake, but there is some confusion between the two when, during their first conversation, Simon calls Lynette by the name of her identical twin sister, Lysette. As the relationship between the two escalates from that of mere acquaintances to lovers, not only does their passion increase to an incendiary level, but Lynette's curiosity about her twin makes her determined to learn her whereabouts. What Lynette doesn't realize is that the search to learn her sister's secrets has put her in grave danger as well.

Simon understands the danger and while his intention is to keep Lynette safe while discovering the strange truths behind her sister's situation, he knows that the evil putting Lynette and her family in peril won't risk discovery before eliminating the beautiful young sisters.

The heat between Simon and Lynette smolders on the pages. Their attraction, seemingly doomed from the beginning, is made of the strongest, sweetest emotions mixed with the steamiest passions. The history of and relationships between secondary characters are brilliantly told at the beginning, shedding light on the back story and giving readers the bonus of an additional story.

Format: Paperback
I'm not exactly thrilled with Don't Tempt Me, the last book in Day's Georgian series. The previous books, Ask For It, Passion for the Game and A Passion for Him were are far superior IMHO.

This book focuses on the somewhat mysterious rogue and sometime English Spy/Mercenary Simon Quinn (who I believe made his debut in PFG as Lady Winter's paramour). As part of his last mission, he must deliver the beautiful French Spy, Lysette, back to her superiors in Paris. He is to exchange her for his men being held hostage by the French. All goes according to plan and Simon is relived that his *missions* are finally over and he can begin to live life again. That is until his English superior pays him an unexpected visit and blackmails him.

Then things only get worse. He is forced to spy on Lysette, only the woman he sees at a ball may look identical to her, but something is not quite right. He can't put his finger on why a woman whom he's never had an attraction to before has him acting like a rutting beast all of a sudden. And Lysette's innocent actions are downright bizarre for a hardened criminal. And who are these people following him and her? It begs the question -what the hell is going on?

There's plenty of lies, blackmail, murder and tons of mystery in this book. Unfortunately, what its really lacking is a good romance. And Heck! thats what I read romances for! I think the twin angle (lySette & lyNette -don't get me started on those names!
