    Holly North was an accountant, in other words had the second most boring job (insurance salesperson would be the first one). One day the owner of a local Christmas themed strip club dropped to her office with her tax forms.

One day the owner of a local Christmas themed strip club dropped to her office with her tax forms. To make a long story short (it was behind the scenes in the book too) Holly agreed to appear in the club as a substitute for a popular stripper Mistress Christmas who was sick at the moment. All Holly had to do was to show up on scene one time and leave the rest to the regular performers. She did. Nick West was a police detective, formerly a cowboy from Wyoming. Boy, the author milks the cowboy theme for all it is worth through the whole book. His friend told him he was robbed by Mistress Christmas some time ago and Nick came to do an unofficial investigation. I guess looking at gorgeous women in different stare of nakedness was a nice bonus. The two met and the expected mix-up occurs. I also have to say their first meeting was accompanied by the corniest dialog I have ever seen written by a professional writer. You know these old and cliched pickup lines that are guaranteed to have your intended date to turn around and start running away with the speed approaching sprint world record? Like, "If you were a library book, I would check you out." These look like classic world literature compared to what Holly and Nick were saying to each other. On the positive side: the story was short, to the point and its ending gives you warm and fuzzy feelings. On the negative side: the dialog of about first half of the book - see the paragraph above. On the neutral side: the story was fairly forgettable and the characters while perfectly serviceable were not outstanding. The rating is expected 3 stars. It is a perfect beach read - if you live in Southern Hemisphere and you celebrate Christmas during summer as it fits the main theme. In other words, it is not great but not bad either. I heard a lot about Lorelei James and I expected better from her.

    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 can always count on Lorelei James to deliver hot, steamy and fun stories.

Detective Nick West isn't a regular at Sugar Plums - or any other strip joint, for that matter. He's there to take down the famous Mistress Christmas, who alledgedly robbed one of his friends during a lap dance. As his friend was too embarassed to press formal charges, Nick has to work undercover and off the clock, trick Mistress Christmas to give him a lap dance and catch her in the act of trying to rob him too. But one look at her has him doubting his ability to keep his mind - and another very distinct body part - focused on the legal matter at hand. The attraction between Holly and Nick is immediate and combustible, and they don't take long to act on it. But neither knows who the other truly is, so what will happen when the truth surfaces? Is there any future for a relationship that basically starts with a misunderstanding and is based on deception? Well, this is Romancelandia. Need I say more? ;) As expected, this was a hot, quick and very entertaining read. Nick and Holly were very likeable and the sexual chemistry between them was great, which always leads to scorching love scenes. On the "negative" side, the setup of the story annoyed me, because I don't think a shy accountant can pass for a seasoned stripper that easily. Anyway, that wasn't "bad" enough to ruin the read. All things considered, this was very good. Note: The Wild West Boys series is kind of a spin-off of the Rough Riders series - the West "boys" are cousins of the McKay "kinky loonies" - but each series stands on its own and you don't have to read one to follow/appreciate the other.

    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').

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 the customers. One particular customer has his eye on Holly--super sexy Detective Nick West is following up on a complaint by a friend who claims 'Mistress Christmas' drugged him and stole his wallet and left him passed out in his car. Nick tries to come on to Mistress Christmas Holly to see if she will do the same and 'take advantage' of him too--if so he's ready for her. Despite giving her plenty of opportunities she doesn't take the bait. Hmm, curious... Nick and Holly are verrry attracted to each other and Holly decides to let her inner wild child loose for one night. She performs a sexy lap dance for Nick that goes a lot farther than it should (steamy hot!), and after that they both agree to spend one wild, no strings night together. Despite connecting (and how!) in the bedroom, against the door, over the couch arm, in the bathtub, etc., and despite actually having some conversations about themselves and their families and connecting on a personal level, neither reveal to the other their real occupations. After a series of misunderstandings and some truths finally emerge, will Nick and Holly have a chance for more than just that one perfect night? Loved these two together! Nick and Holly had such a fun, sexy, easy rapport. And oh my, have a cold drink handy, because their night together was very, very hot! And the lap dance? Whew...LJ can write the most steamy sex scenes...LJ wraps it all up (a little too quickly) with a sweet sexy ending, and a tidy little HEA. If you're looking for a quick, light, super steamy read, and you have a few hours to spare, you'll love this little story. A Lorelei James story is always a sure bet for me. 4 1/2 stars

IF THAT OFFENDS YOU DON’T READ THIS REVIEW AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE IDEA OF SEXUAL DISCUSSION DON’T READ THIS BOOK! Oh my gosh. I was looking around for a fun Christmas themed audiobook, saw this come up on Hoopla, thought the title sounded sexy and went for it. NEVER judge a book by it’s cover I guess. What’s it about? Holly is an accountant who is helping her friend Ivy. How is she helping? By wearing a sexy Christmas themed outfit as the beloved Mistress Christmas and being flirty with customers at Ivy’s business, a Christmas themed strip club. Meanwhile Nick is a cop who shows up off-duty because he wants to bring justice to Mistress Christmas after someone under that stage name drugged someone he knew and took the poor guy’s money. Then they both start falling for each other. Why it gets 1-star: The story. First of all, it’s barely there (more on that later). Second of all, it’s so stupid and poorly written. Part of that is the characters are fucking idiots. Holly is rather uncomfortable with the idea of working at a strip club and even dressing in a sexy outfit there but she wants to be helpful so does it anyway... WHAT? Then there’s Nick who... holy fuck, he might be one of the stupidest characters I’ve ever read. He thinks Mistress Christmas is someone who drugs guys and takes their money so the obvious thing to do is drink with her. The fuck? And then he even goes ahead and sleeps with her at his house- because OBVIOUSLY I’d take someone who I think would likely drug me and take shit to my fucking house. This guy is a complete dumb-ass! The pace is poor. It’s just very slow despite being a very short book. I was bored throughout pretty much the whole thing. This book is insanely predictable. This book tries to be funny but very rarely is. Sure, there’s a few somewhat clever things such as the main character being named Holly but most of the jokes are very cheesy and cringeworthy. I especially couldn’t stand how they call Nick “not so saint Nick” throughout the entire book. The ENTIRE GODDAMN THING! The dialogue is terrible. Most notable line was during a sex scene where Nick says “I know it’s not politically correct but I love these tits”. Umm... what? I mean someone please let me know if I missed a hilarious sounding controversy but when did tits become politically incorrect? The romance is kinda uninteresting. Maybe it’s because I dislike the main characters so much but I didn’t even think they made a cute couple. The sex was actually TOO much. No, not that it was too explicit or whatever, I don’t give a shit about how graphic it gets but any plot seemed to be buried under fucking. Most erotic romance manages to have a plot with some sexy stuff in there, this was sexy stuff with some story-ish thing somewhere (calling it sexy might be a slight over statement actually since it was only somewhat arousing IMO). The ending is anticlimactic. The narrators on the audio edition I listened to did the book no favors. Especially the female narrator, she sounded like she was narrating an episode of a children’s TV series where the main character keeps embarrassing themselves which doesn’t work for a sex book. At all. Overall: This is definitely one of the worst romance books I’ve read. The boring pace, the stupid characters, the terrible dialogue, the bad jokes. Hey Santa, if you’re actually real and reading this, I think this book is probably what you should give instead of a lump of coal. Not recommended at all. 1/5

    4.5 Stars for Mistress Christmas (Wild West Boys #1) (audiobook) by Lorelei James read by Rebecca Estrella and Teddy Hamilton. Lorelei James has a gift for writing these novels. They are sometimes explicit but really down to earth. She is really in tune with the steamer side of all kinds of relationships. This book is part of a much larger series and I’ve really enjoyed it. The narration was wonderful too.

    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. If you are looking for a quick read, look no further.

    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.

I just wish the cover of this book wasn't so, ugh, tacky. 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. 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. Mistress Christmas is the first book in the Wild West Boys series, a spinoff to Lorelei James' Rough Riders. I really enjoyed this peek at one of the West boys life outside of McKay country. Yummy and steamy erotic fun! This was a winner for me and I will definitely be reading more. James always comes up with interesting characters in different settings. Well done. Enjoyable. Great short to satisfy my Lorelei James obsession! LOL! Very fun, sexy holiday romance! Sometimes what you see isn't what you expect, it's more. Yup!

    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.

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 pleasure. What starts as a one-night stand between strangers ends in a love for life between two soul mates. Even though it was rather short (117 pages) I enjoyed the story. It was a nice mix of erotica, romance and a tiny plot. Main thing was the one night stand between Holly and Nick and the development of their feelings during that night. It was light and breezy and too short for depth or real character development but Ms, James does know how to write erotic scenes that ignite the pages and make you tingly all over. She alternates light, witty banter and sexy innuendo with intensity and genuine feelings. While hero and heroine explore each other, the reader gets to know them a bit better. There are very few secondary characters and they weren't necessary for the story since it mainly concentrated on Holly and Nick. Lorelei James's MISTRESS CHRISTMAS gave me exactly what I was looking for on Christmas Day: A light, quick and sexy Christmas read with a happy ending. I really liked this first taste of Lorelei James' writing. She writes tasteful but steaming hot erotica and I can't wait to read her longer stories (on the sexy McKay cowboys) I've been collecting for a while now.

Enter bad pillow talk, a "yeah, right" lack of experience (view spoiler)[no way in hell can a sexually active 28 year old woman never have been on top during sex! (hide spoiler)] , magnum condoms (oh please), and Holly suddenly becoming Misses Insecurity. I cringed in embarrassment a few time. I ended up just wanting to skip the sex and find out what happens with the characters. But then we finally have our climax and it was okaaaay, but a wee-bit anti-climactic. We all knew they really liked each other but Nick's big talk at the end was a little too much for me. The epilogue was cute, and could have been the HEA we wanted without forcing the issue earlier as they did Received for August promo from Bookie Nookie's Erotic Lending Group

I think if I hadn't read RR though, I might have been disappointed with the character development - best to read this alongside RR (in my opinion, anyway). With the background of the McKay men, it was easy to see how Nick would fit right in...another hot alpha-male! I loved Holly as well...nice to see her letting loose and choosing to have a night of no-holds-barred sex. There's nothing better than seeing a woman take control of her sexuality. The steamy scenes were very hot - this is LJ, after all, we would expect no less. All in all, I thought this was a great read - 4 stars.

    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.

    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.

    Hawt Well dang. This was full of het sexual tension and sexual release. Lorelei know how to write a sexy as hell cowboy and even hotter sex scenes. This will keep you very warm on those cold winter night.

    An easy read, not really my cup of tea though. The timeline of three days was a little far-fetched.

    Yummy and steamy erotic fun! I'm reading all out of order and this is my first book by this author. This was a winner for me and I will definitely be reading more. Yummy and steamy erotic fun!
