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 is not a full novel, but it is a sweet story with two intelligent people falling in love. It's too short for much action or character development, but I enjoyed it as a pleasant diversion.
Sorry this book is a slow read. I couldn't get past the first chapter.
Lady Amelia Pembroke has ran her brother the adult of Ravenwood's house since the death of her mother. She is an excellent planner so she decides to pick her groom and go after him. She wants to marry so Ravenwood will find his own lady. She plans to find this mate at the 75th Annual Christmas Eve Ball thrown by Viscount Sheffield. The only problem is it has been cancelled due to a fire.
Benedict St. John, Viscount Sheffield has built his life around working from 8am-8pm. He then plays from 8pm-8am. When Lady Amelia shows up on his doorstep with a plan for the 75th Annual Christmas Ball, she throws his life into a spin.
They both find that they enjoy spending time with each other.
I loved this story.
