I loooved this story! It’s amazing how much romance, fun and adventure Ridley packed into this little novella. This story is a prequel to Ridley’s Dukes Of War series. In this story the reader is introduced to Lady Amelia Pembroke, who has a reputation of being a bit of a manager. Amelia runs her brothers household with military precision and a warm heart. However Amelia has realized that it is time she think about her and her brothers matrimonial prospects.

 

Amelia sets her sights on finding her potential husband at Lord Benedict Sheffield’s  annual Christmas Ball.  Amelia however is disappointed to  learn that Benedict has canceled his party due to a storm destroying parts of the house. This doesn't fit with Amelia’s plans so she shows up at the Lord’s home informing him that she will insure that the party happens despite only having 14 days to plan.

As Amelia and Benedict spend time together viewing venues and planning guest lists, the most unexpected, and to Amelia’s horror, unmanageable passion arises. I loved the chemistry between these characters. Amelia has a sharp wit and an amazing ability to motivate people to her way of thinking, that is until she is floored by Benedict’s charm.

A very sweet story ! I’m looking forward to the Dukes Of War series.
