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.

"The Viscount's Christmas Temptation" by Erica Ridley is a fun, cheerful, super-fast read. This is a novella that is a prequel to Ms. Ridley's upcoming series, The Dukes of War. It's the story of Amelia and Benedict. Amelia is uber-efficient and it is so much fun to see how she works and maneuvers those around her, without them realizing it. It's also wonderful to watch the reactions of those that she works her magic on. Benedict is one of those - he is intrigued by Lady Amelia and the abundance of knowledge she possesses. Being a novella, though, there wasn't much time to delve more into their relationship and how he taught Amelia to have fun which I would have loved to have read more of. But, that didn't matter too much - it was still a great, quick read that I would recommend. (Received copy from NetGalley)
