“Carnally, Ivy and Simon have a connection that left me whimpering with tension. Their moves from raw sex to tender adoration. Their love is a bit obsessive at times, leaving me on the edge of my seat for what unusual thing will happen next. 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. ”

The premise is fully flavored with originality and creativity. This reader has never read anything Ms. Burns has written and not fallen totally under the spell of her writing!”
