Publisher's Summary

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 fete 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 12 days of beguiling Lady Amelia's guerrilla tactics, he's up to his cravat with tinsel...and tumbling head over heels in love.

    "A lovely listen!"

    *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 Goodreads friends. However, this was a very sweet story, with a smart, interesting heroine.

    I adored the female MC, something that I sometimes struggle with, but I really liked her control and her sensible nature. She was really refreshing, honestly. My main complaint was not the characters or the storytelling, but in how FAST the romance progressed. I could have used waaaay more relationship development than this book gave me.

    In terms of audiobook narration, Stevie Zimmerman did a lovely job. She did excellent male and female voices (a MUST for me), and acted out the scenes well. However, the actual recording quality was a little "home recorded" for me. It was a tiny bit muffled sounding, but I got used to it as the story went on, and I didn't mind it much.

    While it wasn't perfect, it was an easy, quick listen and an EXCELLENT deal. Historical audio lovers should snatch this one up.

    "THE VISCOUNT'S CHRISTMAS TEMPTATION"

    A quick, fast read/audible!
    A long lovely, sweet Christmas Romance. The narrator, Stevie Zimmerman , did an awesome job convening this story to the listener.
    A quick audio to Listen to on a long ride!
    Fantastic narrator, and a fantastic story.
    My only complaint, a bit short, but the knowledge of more to come, makes it worthwhile.
    A wonderful introduction to the amazing "The Dukes of War" series. When you get the chance pick this one up, for your listening pleasure.

    "Narration Enhances a Great story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Viscount's Christmas Temptation to be better than the print version?

    About equal but I really enjoyed hearing the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Amelia and Benedict - they are both so single minded in their lives but each need the other to help balance them


    Which character – as performed by Stevie Zimmerman – was your favorite?

    Benedict - she is able to voice his surprise and consternation when dealing with Amelia


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was short enough that it could have been listened to in one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    I had already read the book and so knew the story but listening to it really made it all the more enjoyable

    "Loved it. Can't wait for the rest of the series."
    What did you love best about The Viscount's Christmas Temptation?

    I loved the banter between Lady Amelia and Viscount Sheffield. The story is funny and charming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved how Lady Amelia manages everything and everyone around her without being annoying and unlikeable. She has a kind nature and has everyone's best interests at heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the narrator did a good job especially of differentiating between the different male characters. I would have preferred an RP accent for the aristocratic voices to differentiate between people of different classes. I found the accents of the aristocratic characters, and in particular Lady Amelia, to be slightly on the common side which doesn't truly reflect the characters and I found this aspect to be disappointing.


    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    "Romance that stole my heart!"
    Where does The Viscount's Christmas Temptation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved the story a lot. The reader did fine.


    What other book might you compare The Viscount's Christmas Temptation to and why?

    Very similar to Beatrice Small's stories. I'm in love with the historic period. When the author can make you feel like you're there, it's that much better. I felt that with this book.


    Which character – as performed by Stevie Zimmerman – was your favorite?

    I can't choose between Amelia or Benedict.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    No
