Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.
An entertaining novella from Erica Ridley, the Viscount’s Tempting Minx was like a tasty morsel that finished a bite too soon.
Amelia Pembroke has had years of practice micromanaging things and the opening scene itself gives us the level of problem handling she’s capable of. Well, no two words about it, she’s a steam roller and that character didn’t feel all that lovely to me. But the following scenes involving the organizing of the annual Christmas ball and getting thru all obstacles were easy to read and quite interesting. Being a novella, obviously, the romance feels sudden but on second thoughts it was perfect for this story. I would have loved to read more about the rakish ways of Viscount Sheffield.
There’s subtle dry humor in the dialogues being exchanged which gave me some smiles and chuckles and made it a thoroughly enjoyable story.

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.
