Mistress Christmas by Lorelei James

...all signs point North for not-so-Saint-Nick
A part of the Wild West Boys series.
In a rare moment of recklessness, mild-mannered accountant Holly North lets her best friend guilt her into filling in as Mistress Christmas at Sugar Plums, a Christmas-themed strip club. Fearing she'll be recognized-or worse, considered a fraud-she dons a velvet mask along with the Mrs. Claus-meets-dominatrix costume. She's shocked at how deliciously wicked anonymity feels.
Detective Nick West is determined to discover how his friend was supposedly robbed after a lap dance at Sugar Plums. His visions of revenge vanish faster than a flying sleigh upon his first peek at Mistress Christmas-a leggy brunette with smoky eyes and a lush mouth begging for hours beneath the mistletoe.
Their attraction flares hotter than a fireplace on a cold winter evening, and Nick is only too happy to oblige when Holly blurts out her one Christmas wish... For a naughty secret Santa to sweep her away for a night of anonymous sexual pleasure.
Warning: This erotic comedy contains naughty holiday innuendo, creative use of garland, sexy love scenes hot as spiced cider, a heroine as sweet as sugared plums, and a wildly romantic hero with a great big...candy cane.
If you haven't read Lorelei's Rough Riders series--well you are TOTALLY missing out on some serious cowboy love!!! I was so excited to see this story was about one of the West boys (McCay cousin--McCay's dominate the Rough Riders series).
Mistress Christmas is a very short book with a hot storyline. Lots of times I read these short books and come up feeling empty, but not this one. This book was sexy--in only the way Lorelei can do it. It was hot and fun! She packed a lot into this little book.
I liked Holly (Yes I know but it is a Christmas book!). She is very relateable and who doesn't want to shut off their daily persona and want to be someone else...even for a couple hours!!!!!! She turned out to be one firey kitten!
Nick..(St. Nick)...I just loved Nick. I know it's because I 'know' all of his cousins and I feel close to him already! I love his persistence and determination. I love that he goes for what he wants. And did I mention he's HOT!!!!!
Overall, a great short, Christmas read.
