3.0 out of 5 stars More an adventure book than a romance novel. 6 Sep 2003
By Thea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I guess this book is fine if you are looking for adventure more than romance. Don't misunderstand me, the book had romance, but I felt like the principal theme was the war, the mission to recover the treasure and the intrigue, with romance added like an afterthought.
It really got tiresome how Robert and Olivia could not trust each other or even communicate. All the conflicts between them could have been solved if they had simply talked to each other. And why was Robert always so ready to assume the worst about Olivia? Even when the evidence pointed to the contrary? It only took his brothers a moment to figure out she wasn't the killer of Orlando. And why was Olivia always trying to run away from him? She was wanted for murder, and under the circumstances Robert was the only protection she had. Where would she had gone, had she scaped from him?
And don't get me started on the improbability of two cousins looking so alike that everybody would mistake one for the other. They would have to be twins to be so alike!
In general, I really don't like to see war mixed with romance. Military men don't make my favorite heroes, nor does war and killing my favorite setting for a romance novel, and I think maybe that's why this novel is not memorable for me. The epilogue was my favorite part of the book, although I pity Olivia. Four children in four years of marriage, all this while living in a campsite while her husband did war? Poor woman!
All in all, the book was not bad, just not my favorite kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting regency romance 4 July 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1805 London, Lord Robert Bradstone seduces Olivia Sutton through words of love and kisses. However, it is not her body he wants; it is her brain. He coaxes her into deciphering a coded missive that claims a King's Ransom in a tomb in Madrid. However, a Spanish "spy" tries to intercede, but Robert shoots him and blames a shocked Olivia for the murder. The dying Spaniard gives Olivia a gold band and tells her to flee with the deciphered note.

Seven years later, Robert returns from the seemingly dead of a sunken ship. Meanwhile Olivia needs him to clear her name and to accompany her to Wellington so she can deliver information he needs. Robert apparently wants to atone for his travesty and offers to escort Olivia. However, she has deep doubts about trusting the scoundrel who destroyed her life even if he appears to behave honorable now. She also wonders if he would betray his country. To her chagrin, her thirst for vengeance wars with her love for the rat.
ONCE TEMPTED is an exciting Regency romantic suspense novel that stars a brilliant, intrepid heroine, whose naiveté is destroyed by the dashing aristocratic cad. The story line is fast-paced, filled with action, and loaded with shockers. Elizabeth Boyles' boiling tale will provide much enjoyment to sub-genre fans as the ingenious Olivia, though once burned, struggles to avoid that same flame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down 24 Aug 2013
By Leah Wandrei - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Just enough mystery to keep you wondering. And plenty of anguish to feel the characters pain and love. Wonderfully written, however it jumped s not and felt a look rushed on some aspects.
5.0 out of 5 stars Always love an Elizabeth Boyle 11 July 2013

Another great Elizabeth Boyle book. I had missed a few of her earlier books and am working to catch up on them all. Always a pleasure to read her books.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the beach 22 Jun 2013
By clam digger - Published on Amazon.com

This is a good book to take to the beach I think it is a series and I did read the whole series. I don't like to copy the blurb in the back, but I enjoy Elizabeth Boyle as an author.
