Praise for Lick This

EXCERPT FROM LICK THIS
“Did Marsha hire you? Don’t you know it’s against the law to come down someone’s chimney without permission? And dangerous. You could fall.”
He pulled off his hat, ruffling thick, dark brown hair that fell perfectly into place. “I’m Norr, spelled with two r’s. I don’t know Marsha. It’s Christmas and that law doesn’t apply to Santa or his employees. Elves don’t fall.”
“I should call the cops.”
He looked surprised. “Why would you do that?”
“You have no right to come into my house.”
“It’s my job.”
“Since when do Elves come down chimneys and leave unwanted stockings on people’s mantels? That’s Santa’s job.”
“Since forever, and if you were six years old it would be Santa’s job. You’re not a child any longer.” His gaze raked over her as if verifying that information. “So now it’s an Elf’s job. My job.”
“Elves make little trains, cars and dolls.”
“Those are toy making Elves.”
Why am I having this conversation with drop-dead-gorgeous in an Elf getup? Faith pointed her cell phone at him. “You’re a stripper.”
“I’m a Elf.”
“Elves are short, wear jingle bells on their hats and pointy shoes.”
“You’re thinking of the Christmas Elves, a special category all together. They wear those costumes for the children. I’m not a Christmas Elf. I’m not sure I could handle all the crying and snotty noses.”
“But you have pointed ears?”
He gave her a sparkling smile. A tiny light twinkled on his tooth.
“All Elves have pointed ears.”
Frustrated, Faith took a step toward him. He was a good six inches taller. His shoulders were wide and his hips lean. She wondered if a hunky body was hidden beneath the Elf outfit. “Okay, what kind of stripper Elf are you?”
“I’m in Santa’s Lost and Found department.” A grin with a hint of mischief curved his lips. “Do you want me to strip?”
