A fine story on it's own but it suffers when compared to the first two books of the series. And I had such a problem with the conflict of this story that it was hard for me to get into this book. In the first two books, the heros' actions were so bad--on paper--that they were a bit over-the-top (in a good way) and it was easier for me to forgive them. But in Tempted by Her Innocent Kiss, the conflict felt way too real. Because I got to read things from his POV, I knew he deeply regretted it, but I couldn't accept that the Ashley forgiving him. He essentially told her that he disliked everything about her...how do you get past that?
