Here is the sentence:

A tantalizing smell had drawn Richard to the edge of his neighbor's yard. Finally, temptation winned, and he crept across the lawn to the open window, where he spied chocolate-broccoli muffins cooling on the kitchen counter.

The second verb, winned, is the problem. As you know, the sentence requires the simple past. Won is the correctly spelled form.
