...all signs point North for not-so-Saint-Nick

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 sho

I can always count on Lorelei James to deliver hot, steamy and fun stories. I just wish the cover of this book wasn't so, ugh, tacky. But hey, I've got it as an e-book, so why am I complaining? LOL!

Holly North is a shy accountant who, for reasons I'll never fully understand, agrees to don a dominatrix costume and fill in as Mistress Christmas at Sugar Plums, a "gentleman's" club - aka a high-class strip joint.

Detective Nick West isn't a regular at Sugar Plums - or any other strip joint, for that

I loved it! This little story was cute, fun, and steamy hot! Typical Lorelei James story--plenty of sexy dialogue, smokin' hot love scenes, and two very likable leads.

Mild mannered accountant Holly North (against her better judgment) decides to do her client/friend Ivy, who is owner of a gentlemen's club, a favor and fill in for one of her under-the-weather strippers (known as 'Mistress Christmas'). No actual stripping involved, just some walking around in a revealing outfit and mingling with th

My Thoughts:

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

Super fun and sexy story! Holly's gig taking over for 'Mistress Christmas' isn't supposed to land her in the sights of undercover cop Nick but since he's investigating the possibility of a theft happening at the Christmas themed strip club Sugar Plums she finds herself under an appraising eye and an even sexier hand. Lots of sexy scenes and the mis-identity gets played for a while before things get set to rights and Holly and Nick get their happy ending. Very enjoyable! I'm definitely going to l ...more

I loved this novella! I can't get enough of LJ's Rough Rider's series and this is an awesome addition. The West part of the family has always been a bit of a mystery but after I read Boone's story, I wanted more of that branch of the family. LET.ME.TELL.YOU. It did not disappoint. Even though its a short story, Nick and Holly burn through the pages. It's such a sweet story that I found myself going "Awwww" quite a bit.

Holly, a mild-mannered accountant lets her best friend guilt her into filling in as "Mistress Christmas" at Sugar Plums, a Christmas-themed strip club....Nick a detective (who used to be a cowboy in Wyoming) is determined to discover how his friend was supposedly robbed by Mistress Christmas after a lap dance.

There is a lot of chemistry between them when they meet, and it is also kinda funny to see her trying to pull off being Mistress Christmas, and Nick trying to figure her out. They meet for

I think I must be in the minority of readers because this book just wasn't all that for me. It felt like a bland imitation of her Rough Riders series. Both characters were bland actually, and I only kept reading to give this a fair chance because I normally love her work. This I'd classify more like Rough Riders Light & Boring.

2 stars and a yawn.

Loved how the characters met and how the story ended and of course all the hot sex in between.

Lorelei James never fails to write a book that keeps me interested while writing love scenes that are nothing short of steamy. A short read with some insta-love, this Christmas novella is a great example of why James is so good...and she throws in that cowboy flair for those of us who have been fans of the McKay/West clan all along.
3.5 stars!

When accountant Holly North decides to help her friend and client out and fill in for her regular stripper Mistress Christmas at the gentleman’s club her friend owns, she doesn't know Mistress Christmas is going to be under investigation by detective Nick West. His friend was drugged and robbed by the stripper during after a lap dance and Nick wants to catch her in the act. Instead he catches Holly who makes him a tempting offer: to indulge themselves in one night of unadulterated plea
2.5 stars I was leaning more towards the 3 star rating but the ending was just so sappy I couldn't do it. I liked the general premise of this and thought it would be fun, sexy, and different. Their initial encounter is fraught with bad innuendos and cheesy come-ons, but I liked the whole idea of a misunderstanding because it leaves you anticipating the fall out. So I stuck with it.

Despite this being an erotic romance and the initial sex being hot, it actually got to be kind of boring because it
Not your average everyday christmas miracle but one to remember none-the-less. Hot hot hot hotel room scenes. One even included a lil bit ol bondage & a gag.
Nick and Holly meet in a gentleman's club which is actually a Christmas themed strip club. Holly has a normal boring job as an accountant but her best friend convinces her to fill in as Mistress Christmas. So this shy sexy account slowly burst out of her shell with a couple courage shots and embraces a wild side.

Mistress Christmas is the first book in the Wild West Boys series, a spinoff to Lorelei James' Rough Riders. Nick West (one of the McKay's cousins) has left Wyoming and is living in Denver working as a detective. When he goes to a strip club to privately investigate a robbery, he meets Holly, a normally mild mannered accountant who is filling in for Mistress Christmas, a stripper at the club.

I really enjoyed this peek at one of the West boys life outside of McKay country. I think if I hadn't re

Holly North is helping out her friend at her stip club by being Mistress Christmas.
Nick West is a detective and he is the stip club to catch a thief red handed. But what he gets is a whole lot hotter.
They get together and have a whole night of hot passionate sex.

A hot and passionate read from beginning to end. Loved it. Can't wait to read more from the West side of the family.

Short but not sweet...

It was freaking HOT!!! I love this author and her writing style. She was born to write about sexy, alpha cowboys. I read all I can from this author and even a short book like this is worth every penny.

Hot, sexy rom com

This short novella is like the perfect bite--a just right combination of hot, sexy and sweet, with a dash of funny thrown in. Lots of hot, smoking sex, and soul deep insta-love, wrapped up in a likeable hero and heroine. A quick read that left me smiling.

Very fun, sexy holiday romance! Sometimes what you see isn't what you expect, it's more. Nick and Holly meet in a strip clubhouse. Yup! A strip club. She's Mistress Christmas, the non-stripping, non-dancing, shy accountant. Nick isn't your regular "strip clubbed". He's a police officer checking out a complaint against Mistress Christmas. One (or two) propositions later and you have the hottest night of sex and sweet touches you could ever want.

Is it a lie? Or the best possible tomorrow they cou

Overall, this book is handy for you guys who just stuck in home to spend free time or holiday. This book maybe is not really into me. But I love the way the author create Nick West to make me fall in love with him. He is so gentleman but really humble just the way he is. Ahhh he can be your husband material. 2.8 stars for Lorelei James!
