The Viscounts Christmas Temptation ( Dukes of War 0.5 ) By Erica Ridley with Review by Samantha

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.

Lady Amelia has a plan. She needs to find a husband. Not because she really wants to. She's quite satisfied with her life. But her brother needs to marry and produce an heir but he feels no need for a wife when Amelia does everything. Therefore she needs to marry and move out. So she needs for Lord Sheffield to throw his families annual Christmas ball because the only men she will consider marrying will be there. When she finds out that he doesn't plan on throwing it this year when the venue where they always have it is ruined and unable to be used she decides to help.
Benedict doesn't know what to think about the bossy female who finagles her way into his home and says she's going to help him with his family party. He doesn't plan on letting her do it but she fascinates him so he decides to play along. Because playing along means that he gets to spend more time with her. And he finds that he wants to spend as much time with her as he possibly can.
I LOVE this book! Amelia's character is wonderful. She is just the type of character that I love. A woman who knows what she wants. Or at least she thinks she does. I love Benedicts character also. I think they are the perfect couple. Erica is a wonderful writer and story teller. She really draws you into the story and I found it very hard to put this book down! I definitely recommend reading.
