Blog Tour: A Blue Stocking Christmas by Monica Burns

A Bluestocking Christmas (Novella)
By Monica Burns


Sinful words, wicked pleasures and a ghost all add up to A Bluestocking Christmas with a Dickens of a twist.

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.

Available for purchase at 


The perfect novella for a glass of wine and a warm fire.  I really enjoyed Ivy and Simon's tale of finding love and learning to trust.  Modeled after a traditional tail, A Blue Stocking Christmas, is a heart warming tale that demonstrates how opening your heart can do wonders!!  Especially around the holidays!  A definite must read!!
