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.

    Sheffield' s Christmas Ball!!! Will Lady Amelia be able to assist Lord Sheffield with the disaster which has fallen upon his Ballroom? Well-developed storyline. Fast-paced read. A beautiful love fun filled romance story.

    "Nice introduction to the series"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a nice little introduction to the series. It's just a short novella, only nine chapters long, so there isn't a lot of room for in-depth character development. It really only centers around the two main characters and their developing relationship though, and we the readers learn just enough about them to find them endearing. It looks like further books will be about different couples, but they'll be longer stories, so I hope we'll get to peek in on some of these people again and find out what happens to them.

    A big thumbs-up for this being a clean romance novella. The main characters want each other, sure, but they aren't jumping into bed with each other after a couple weeks together or anything. I'd consider it appropriate for a teenage reader as well as for the adult crowd.

    "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.
