The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation Review
The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation is a short, sweet and simple novel which makes a great addition to the historical romance genre. The story is set back in the early 1800s and not a perfectly feminist novel but many parts of it are. With fun characters, unexpected situations, romance and Christmas ball packed neatly into the little story, this novel makes a great prequel to Ridley’s new series.
The light-hearted historical holiday romance has everything that one would expect in a story. Both the main characters of the story are stubborn and head-strong. This makes all the situations in the story humorous as they both try to get their way without realizing that they both want the same thing.
The story is written in third-person past tense and an interesting language. It lets you learn about all the characters and makes it so interesting that you may even want to live in the world the book creates long after you’re done reading. Those who are looking for a quick holiday read with a historical romance feel should consider ‘The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation’.
The main character of the story, Lady Amelia Pembroke, is a 30 years old single woman with a superpower of amazing organization skills. She likes to plan a lot and makes sure that all around her is in order all the time. Viscount Sheffield is a man who always has a Christmas gala and invites rich families from the region to come over to celebrate. A lightning strike destroys the building where the events are held, but Amelia wants to help him make the event happen. As he spends days with her while she fixes everything, he falls more in love with her.
