About this ebook

Enjoy the first laugh-out-loud story in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erica Ridley’s fan-favorite Dukes of War regency romance series!

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.

This book was so short there was no time to expand on what was happening. In fact it was a short story. I would assume it had been chopped drastically because there seemed to be gaps. The Viscount's feelings were sudden and unmentioned until it shot out of the gate like the favourite at Newmarket. It seemed decidedly odd to me. It was a pretty story that didn't have the chance, in under a hundred pages, to get going properly, and that's even with large print. I was disappointed for the writer as well as myself. You could tell without looking that the writer was a women because the woman's feelings were the one's that were explained a bit more. The Viscount was an addition without having any importance. Moments of enjoyment were blighted by the lack of depth to the story. Sorry to put a blight on it but it was how I viewed this book

The Viscount's Tempting Minx - Erica Ridley I really enjoyed this short, Regency Romance. It helps that I'm a big fan of Erica Ridley anyway. Lady Amelia runs her household like clockwork. She knows what her staff need and require before even they do. But she comes to realise that, at almost thirty, she needs a husband and looks to Debrett's Peerage for guidance. And the best place to look at these Dukes and Earl's, is at a ball. The Sheffield's 75th annual ball, to be precise. Lord Sheffield has cancelled the annual ball that his family has thrown for decades, because the venue of this well established event has burned down. Lady Amelia, in her no nonsense, this ball will go ahead as planned, way, decides that she is the one to get it back on track. Little did either of them know, that love and a perfect match wasn't going to be found in a tatty old book.

What a delightful romance! Amelia and Benedict are truly well-matched, a fact that becomes quite evident as they work together to find a last-minute replacement venue for his family's annual Christmas Eve ball. I absolutely loved the banter between these two, the clever steps that Amelia takes to bring Benedict into agreement with her, and the unabashed respect he has for her when he realizes just how deftly she maneuvered him. Not that the maneuvering is one-sided - Benedict's handling of Lady Jersey was simply priceless! Everything about this book was perfectly on-point, making it a captivating, non-stop read and hooking me instantly on the entire series.
