Editorial Reviews

Just Erotic Romance Reviews - Editor Reviewer
“Carnally, Ivy and Simon have a connection that left me whimpering with tension. Ms. Burns has written such an appealing story that I found myself eagerly looking for the end just so I could see what would happen between these astounding characters. Although I normally do not gravitate to the historical novels, A Bluestocking Christmas has definitely changed my mind and is most deserving of a Silver Star Award. ”

    Ivy Beecham is and heiress and a librarian. A very unusual combination. Simon Carlton, Viscount Wycombe, knows she works at the London Library and believes she is a fortune-hunter trying to ensnare his nephew. When he approaches her, he finds a beautiful educated spitfire who is not impressed with his title or position. Their war of words fuels an intense physical attraction. They become lovers. Distrust leads Ivy to break off her liaison with Simon. As Ivy seeks solace in the library, a ghostly apparition appears. Will he help these two soul mates find their HEA? Monica Burns writes a wonderful story that is filled with emotion and white hot romance. Ivy and Simon are so perfectly matched. They are intelligent, strong willed and passionate. I loved the ghostly apparition that helped guide Ivy. This is a wonderful way to put you in the holiday mood.

    Vivi’s Review
    Blue Stocking Christmas is a delectable holiday treat. Ivy Beecham is an interesting and formidable heroine. She is the daughter of a tradesman, which make her a commoner, even though her mother was from noble blood. Ivy’s perceptions of how she was treated by many in the peerage taints her feelings for all who come from this social class. I loved Ivy’s intelligence and spunk, but her prejudices for the nobles and resentment of her station came to a point where I almost wanted to smack her. But luckily, someone shows her the error of her ways.
    Simon is a rake and rogue of the best sort. He’s intelligent, funny, and stubborn. He is determined to have what he want whether it’s good for him of not. Ivy is the one person who throws a wrench into Simon’s world. I love the smart and sexy ways he wooed her. Then, when he realized his true feeling for her, he refuses to let her fears stand in the way of their happiness. Like most men, he had a few stumbles along the way, but he more than makes up for those blunders.
    A Blue Stocking Christmas is a steamy romance stamped with holiday cheer. The chemistry between Ivy and Simon is a sultry dance wrapped in a battle of wits. I loved the back and forth and their seduction of words. And when they are in bed, the temperature increases exponentially. Definitely a hot holiday read!
