Book Review of -- The Viscount's Christmas Temptation (Dukes of War Book 1) by Erica Ridley
Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
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 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 review --
This was a truly awesome book that makes for a wonderful christmas read. The heroine in the book is very feminine yet very smart, and totally likeable. The male lead character in the book is delightful as well, as he is enchanted by this determined woman who invades his otherwise well defined life. It has an ending that you'll love, and just what you'll want to curl up with for your holiday reading. Best of all, at the time of this post, IT'S FREE!
