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. " — Just Erotic Romance Reviews

Reviewer: Vivi Review Source: Author Blurb: As a young man, Simon, Viscount Wycombe learned the painful truth that a tradesman's daughter is suitable only for liaisons and nothing more. But Ivy Beecham is a far cry from his preconceived notions, and he's determined to have her. But when she rejects him, it only increases his determination to seduce her into a world of sin and pleasure. Ivy Beecham knows first-hand that handsome aristocrats like Simon can't be trusted. But the intellectual scoundrel is hellbent on making her his mistress, using every means at his seductive disposal. When she refuses to give away her heart on Christmas Eve, a ghostly specter shows her in one night why her surrender can be the greatest gift of all. 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!
