The Viscount's Christmas Temptation by Erica Ridley

The Viscount's Christmas Temptation

Dukes of War #0.5

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.

Kathie's Review:

Oh my gosh! This was a fabulously fun, sweet read. I LOVED IT. Yes, I'm gushing, just a bit. 

Lady Amelia is a managing sort. But...that doesn't mean she's BOSSY. Far from it! She leads her troops (from her brother, to the staff, to Lord Sheffield) gently to where she wants them to be. They can almost imagine that it was their idea to follow through on her directions. I loved her. 

Benedict was worried that she was going to be BOSSY. But then he finds himself following her directions, too! And that surprises and shocks him. He is usually the one to micro-manage EVERYTHING. Well, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Those are work hours and work must be done. After 8...all bets are off and let the FUN begin. 

He decides that this managing miss needs some FUN in her life, too. And he's just the man to lead her along that path. 

And what a fun filled path it is! 

This little gem is free at Amazon right now (always check!). And then the author went and was mean! She gave us a little excerpt from the next book, Book 1 in the Dukes of War SeriesThe Earl's Defiant Wallflower (The Dukes of War #1). I WANT IT NOW!!! Now, please? 

*Thank you, Netgalley and Intrepid Reads, for the opportunity to read this book!
