      3.5 stars****Kindle version is up for free right now on !!!****I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Amelia is the ultimate type A personality, she has been managing the household ever since at a young age her father died and her younger brother inherited the dukedom. She can anticipate any situation, is aware of any potential issues, and is the Shakespeare of to-do lists. At the horrendously "old" [...]

      *3.5 stars*Well THAT was an unexpected surprise! I enjoyed this one, quite a lot, actually. I was expecting very little from this historical romance novella. First of all, this was a freebie, and with only $1.99 extra for the matching audiobook, a total bargain. Second of all, this was an unknown author to me, with some very mixed reviews from my friends. However, this was a very sweet story, with a smart, interesting heroine. I adored the female MC, something that I sometimes struggle with, bu [...]

She micromanages lovingly & is determined to make the best match for herself so she can move out of her brother's home. And what better place to meet a new beau than at the fête of the year?Viscount Sheffield's parties are always full of men and women of the hour. But this year he has been forced to cancel because a bolt of lightning destroyed h [...]

      arc provided by Intrepid Reads through NetgalleyIn case my rating left someone in any doubt I'll just go ahead and say: I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this novella!!!I'm one of the stingiest reviewers out there, I'm not proud of this because it means I usually don't get to enjoy things to the fullest over sometimes trivial matters, but THIS BOOK!Lady Amelia is a very straight-forward and practical kind of lady. She anticipates contretemps, unexpected guests, dire changes of menu at the very last minute. [...]

      3/2 - I really liked Amelia and found her managerial skills laugh-out-loud funny and very impressive. I wish this had been a full length novel, I definitely think there was scope for both characters to be expanded into a 300ish page book. There wasn't really anything about the content of the book that I didn't like, it was what was missing that brought this down to a four star. I will definitely read more from this series (from the library or cheap purchase, might go check for further books in [...]

      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. Butat 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 sur [...]

      2.5 StarsA cute albeit short novella _ yes, I am familiar with the concept of novella _ about two people who are used to having everything controlled in their lives.Amelia was quirky I admit, but I thought everything was just too quickly done.Despite that, this was a cute and fast novella to occupy the time with.

      Benedict and AmeliaLady Amelia Pembroke is the sister of the Duke of Ravenwood. When the seventy-fifth Annual Sheffield Christmas Ball is canceled by Viscount Benedict Sheffield, Lady Amelia takes it upon herself to organize the ball in an alternate location. The problem is getting Lord Sheffield to agree. Viscount Sheffield is a man who organizes his day on the eights. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. he conducts business. From 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. is for the pursuit of pleasure. When Lady Amelia disrupts his [...]

      2.5Look at that monstrosity of the book cover. Horrible, just horrible. Don't pay attention to it.This story is a lovely way to pass the time. Lady Amelia Pembroke has decided that Lord Benedict Sheffield needs her help organizing a seventy-fifth annual family ball. Her plan is to choose a husband there because she has decided that her brother needs a wife. Neither will know what hit them. I like both characters.She is never annoying. Her accomplishments are reasonably explained. She is that goo [...]

      The Viscount's Christmas Temptation is a delightfully charming historical romance novella. It is the prequel to Erica Ridley's "The Dukes Of War" series.Lady Amelia Pembroke has managed the affairs of her brother's (the Duke's) estate since the age of 14 when her mother passed away. And quite efficiently too! At 29 she feels she is holding her brother back from finding a wife and producing an heir and decides it is time to find a husband. The annual Sheffield Ball would be the perfect venue for [...]

      What a sweet story I love historical romance, based in an era where men were gentlemen and where women were ladies.The heroine in this story I like a lot she was very studious and had a lot of charm. Great story.

      Lady Amelia Pembroke knows the only way she could get her younger brother, the Duke of Ravenwood, married, is to get married herself. And what better way to find a husband than at the annual Sheffield Christmas ball. Unfortunately, the annual ball is canceled due to a lightning strike, so Amelia decides to help Viscount Sheffield find another venue and organize the ball so she can find a suitable husband. But you know what they say about the best laid plansI've been meaning to read this for a wh [...]

      Por un lado la historia prometía, los personajes tienen un carácter fantástico, sobre todo ella, tan controladora que parece que nunca nadie se le pueda adelantar o cogerle algo por sorpresa.Pero lo que es la historia de amor me ha cojeado mucho. No he visto unos sentimientos que me hayan llegado, ni como sucede ha terminado de convencerme. De un capítulo a otro como si cambiaran de opinión drásticamente y me hubiera gustado mucho más ver una evolución de dichos sentimientos.Además tamp [...]

    17. Joan on said:

      Delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed this 'short' until the story ended at 77%! I HATE it when books do that without any warning! And yes, it was free to download but it leaves an unpleasant sense of being cheated. Why don't authors warn us at the start of a book that it ends before the 100% mark? I read, expecting the story to go on to at least the 95% mark so mentally I am geared up to read much more of the story and to find it ending so abruptly, is off-putting. That is the only reason I didn't g [...]

    18. Cathy (cathepsut) on said:

      Short, silly, predictable, entertaining. It feels like a much shorter story, although the print editions manage to be around 200 pages. Well plotted, believable characters, no big surprises. The ending feels a bit rushed. A little bit more build-up would have been nice. And maybe a twist or two. Good choice to get a glimpse into the series and to see, if you might like Ridley's writing for a bit of mindless Regency romance fluff.

      Sweet and easy read - loved the characters and the story - probably wouldn't want to read a whole one (!) but as a short story it was cute and festive

      The Viscount's Christmas Temptation by Erica Ridley is a 2014 Intrepid Reads publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Lady Amelia is a character I admired greatly for her ability to manage and organize everything. She could foresee problems in advance and was always prepared for them. When she realizes her single status is holding her brother back, she decides it is time to find a suitable husband. She approached this the sa [...]

      This is the prequel novella to Erika Ridley's newest series The Dukes of War. If the rest of the series is as entertaining as this one it is going to be a great series. Amelia is a great character especially when she refers to Debrett's Peerage as a catalog when her brother catches her looking for a husband. It's a great and fast and fun read.As domineering, bossy, and head strong woman Lady Amelia Pembroke is, you really can't help but like her. She makes it her duty to know everything that's g [...]

    25. Becca on said:

      Meh. I almost did not finish this one. I think this author is a good storyteller and I will try other works by her due to her fast paced story and snappy dialogue, but wow, I really hated the heroine in this story. I am a type A personality with a photographic memory and even I felt that the heroine was extreme in her characterization. She was manipulative, self centered, and cold. The hero, for some reason, found her irresistible and while I thought he could have charm, the heroine was the foca [...]

      In a word: adorable! I loved her rational thinking and determination to shape her future according to what she thinks is best as well as his way of allowing himself to be persuaded to host the ball. They had wonderful chemistry, and this story reminded me so much of the phrase, 'Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans'.

      I got to read an early copy of this and I absolutely loved it. Funny, charming, and sensual, this is a wonderful story. I loved both hero and heroine and I can't recommend it enough! One of my new favorites.

      A very managing sort of young woman is centre stage, at the age of twenty-nine not feeling in need of a chaperone and with her household well organised. Her brother can't believe how well she administers; next she must choose a husband. A ball should be held around Christmas by a viscount, but his ballroom has suffered a fire. Our heroine arrives and proposes to organise it for him, with a change of venue. After all, it would be a good chance for her to size up eligible men and to star in her ow [...]
