It's been several days since I read Don't Tempt Me, and initially I couldn't remember what it was about - not a good sign! It's an enjoyable enough book, if clearly a little forgettable.

Zoe Lexham isn't your average young girl. She has spent twelve years in the exotic East after being kidnapped and forced to live in a harem. When she escapes and returns home to London, it's clear that her shocking history might have an effect on her family's reputation.

Lucien de Grey is an old family friend. Zoe's father is like a father figure to him, and he decides to use his position as Duke to try to reduce the problems that Lexham faces - plus Zoe was a childhood playmate before she disappeared.

But Zoe doesn't know entirely how to behave, and when he spends time with her Lucien seems to forget, too. Can they find a happy ending?

I usually like Loretta Chase's books - Lord of Scoundrels is absolutely excellent - but this one isn't quite as memorable. Although both Zoe and Lucien are good characters, some of the plot feels forced, such as an attempt at a mystery. Still, it's a good read for those who like their historical romances.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Helen Hancox, 2009
