When Holly Jeffries needs someone to play Santa for the Christmas party, she asks the boss' son to help out. Mike Weston is willing to dress up in the bright red suit—if Holly will don an elf costume and be his assistant.
When Holly Jeffries is left in charge at the Mountain Laurel Lodge, all sorts of things go wrong. First the kitchen staff threatens to walk out, accompanied by the housekeeping crew, and then Santa falls and breaks a leg. But then Mike Weston shows up and brings order to the chaos – even agreeing to play Santa Claus – if Holly will dress up as an elf and be his helper. But the elf suit leaves little to the imagination. The tunic is short and the tights are tight. And besides, she has no Christmas spirit. Can an attorney from New York dressed as old St. Nick convince a pretty redhead dressed as an elf that Christmas is a magical time?
Holly went quickly into his arms, pressing her body against the length of his and feeling the hardness in his boxer shorts. He wanted—planned—to have sex with her. What he had said in the dining room was true. He would be her first.
His hands moved quickly to rid her of her clothing, and then he slipped off his shorts and came to her, pushing her down on the bed.
Holly pulled in a deep breath as his length settled atop her body. His heat at once melded with her body warmth and an exquisite sensation spread along her limbs. She wound her arms around his naked shoulders and received his mouth with hers, parting her lips for his tongue to enter and explore her mouth.
A heat began to build inside her—an erotic heat that filtered to every part of her body. Her senses were filled with his scent, his tangy cologne and the heat of his skin. His hands were caressing her nakedness, skimming along her hips and then delving between her legs, sending her emotions spinning out of control. Her breathing quickened and she began moving her hands along his naked body, bringing a rash of moans and shivers from him. She felt emboldened by his reactions to her touch. A sudden feeling of power zinged through her insides, making her eyes flicker open in sudden need to look at him.
