The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation (Dukes of War .05) by Erica Ridley
Certain individuals might consider Lady Amelia Pembroke a managing sort of female, but truly, most people would be lost without her help. Why, the latest on-dit is that rakish Viscount Sheffield is canceling the fête of the year because he hasn't time for silly soirees. He doesn't need time—he needs her!
When a flash of lightning destroys the venue for his family's annual Christmas ball, Lord Benedict Sheffield intends to enjoy a relaxing holiday for once. But after twelve days of beguiling Lady Amelia's guerrilla tactics, he's up to his cravat with tinsel . . . and tumbling head over heels in love.
Authors come up with some of the best novellas around Christmas and The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation fits right in. I loved Lady Amelia Pembroke. She is a very busy managing female who has a plan for everything; everything except finding a husband. That plan just does not work. Lord Benedict Sheffield is her perfect match and it is fun to watch as they both realize they are made for each other.
I have a favorite scene. See if you like it too. I loved how she came equipped with everything needed to settle down on Lord Sheffield’s steps. She came ready to wait him out.
This is a prequel to the Dukes of War series but really is a great stand alone to read during this busy time of year. It is a fun quick read filled with humor that you can finish in between shopping, baking and parties.
Intrepid Reads published The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation by Erica Ridley in 2014.
I received an ARC of The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
