This review was written by the author.
"I loved this short story, and especially enjoyed the way it was written. 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

"She will not only arouse the reader with some very descriptive and titillating erotic encounters, but she is also going to do it with intelligent and witty writing that you will absolutely love..."

― Marilyn Rondeau, E-Romance Writers - A Romance Designs Community Website

Book description
"Beneath the Mistletoe" by Charlotte Featherstone: Holly Nightingale is a woman who has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. It's been eight years since the man she thought loved her left her without a word after kissing her passionately beneath the mistletoe. Andrew Carlyle has made his fortune in India and returned to England to claim the woman he has always wanted. But the Holly he knew is gone. In her place is a stranger with a delectably curvaceous body he can't stop desiring, and a steely resolve he hopes to breach. And he will, especially with the help of Holly's great-grandmother--The Grand Dame, not to mention his persuasive skill with the mistletoe. "A Bluestocking Christmas" by Monica Burns: Miss Ivy Beecham is a bluestocking who has sworn off love, and she's found the perfect place to hide--a library. Simon Carton, Viscount Wycombe, is an intellectual rogue who's convinced all women can be bought. What neither of them counted on was finding love amid a stack of dusty books. Determined to win the reluctant bluestocking nymph, Simon seduces Ivy with words and other sinful pleasures. But despite the passion between them, Ivy refuses to risk her heart--at least not until the ghost of her ancestor visits her on Christmas Eve and helps Ivy see that her choices will affect the rest of her life. The question is, will Ivy make the right choice? "A Kind of Magic" by Monica Burns and Charlotte Featherstone: Christmas for thirty year old romance writer, Julia Taylor is just plain not worth it. The excitement that used to surround Julia during the holidays has been replaced with a cool cynicism. The magic is gone. Faced with the loss of her publishing contract if she doesn't produce a blockbuster romance novel for her editor, she heads for Harrow Lodge, the home of her ancestor, the Grand Dame, in England. To finance her trip, she pawns a treasured heirloom that's been in the family even longer than Harrow Lodge. But the ghost of the Grand Dame has something else in store for Julia. Brock Maitland is not quite alive, nor is he dead. He's in that insufferable space, hovering on the brink of either state. Brock only has one chance to find his soul mate and make her love him, thus returning him to a mortal state. Now all he has left to do is convince Julia, the uptight, spinster romance author, that the magic she creates in her books can be found between them.
