Summary

A brand new, deliciously wicked romance series from USA Today best-selling author Kerrigan Byrne. The Goode Girls aren't simply good, they're stunning.

Uncouth American Elijah Wolfe’s ambition is as savage and insatiable as his name might suggest. He is a collector of pretty possessions, and from the moment he spies shy, bespectacled Felicity Goode, he decides she must belong to him.

This infuriating bluestocking, however, is in the habit of making her own decisions and is not about to yield on behalf of a brutally handsome, silver-tongued devil.

another brilliant story

Loved every second of it. just couldn't supp listening. I love love Kerrigan Bryne's books I can't get enough of them. Please write faster. Can't wait for the next one. As always Derek Perkins was brilliant and the narration was even better with Stella Hunter doing the female voices. More please.

Disappointing

Derek Perkins is an excellent narrator but unfortunately Stella Hinter isn't nearly as good.

The story was too short and lacked information on Gabriel's life, although the chemistry between him and Felicity was excellent.

I'm not sure whether I will be listening to any more of the series.

Re: DEREK PERKINS I LOVE YOU!

ME TOO! Whether he's the Scot Chief Justice Ramsay, a rogue brother Savageau, the scarred Duke of Redmayne and sooo many hot guys by Ms. Byrne, I love Derek Perkins. Growling, snarling, fierce or whispering, flirting and cursing... the old guy has got the chops I adore.

Stella Hunter, well, I didn't care for her as much. I would have chosen Bianca Amato for these duet books.

Derek Perkins! I love you!

I’m a huge Kerrigan Byrne/Perkins fan and this book was no exception. Hunter did well but I can listen to Derek endlessly. The emotional rendering in his telling was beautiful and I need the next installment asap!

Been Waiting for this HEA since Book One!

4 out of 5 wine glasses.

I thoroughly enjoyed Felicity and Gabriel's story and even though this HEA has been building up since the beginning of series, I think this book moved a bit too quickly and could have used a little more development and I'll never complain about a Kerrigan Byrne book being too long, so I would've liked 50-100 pages more. However, since I was curious as to how the series would continue since all of the sisters have found their HEA's, I'm super stoked at how the author worked that out and can't wait to read the following books!

Wonderful book and wonderfully narrated

I LOVE dual narration! It adds to the passion of the book. And the book is already a five star one!

Great book - can’t stand duet narration

Ugh! I really hate the narration in duet - especially when it includes Stella Hunter! Her accent just sounds forced and totally fake. Plus, some of her voices sound so syrupy that it makes me cringe! If this book had been performed solely by Derek Perkins, it would have been a 5 star listen.
If you don’t mind Stella Hunter’s voice and aren’t bothered by duel narration, then “Tempting Fate” is a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
Gabriel and Felicity’s story was both sweet and sexy. It also had a decent mystery with a nice twist in the end.
