Excerpt from Santa's Lap
Copyright © Lanette Curington / Lani Aames
All rights reserved. This is a work of fiction.

Reed had been away the past three years, managing an upscale department store in the city. When he came back home to manage Sinclair's after the death of their uncle had left the store to the two brothers, Tasha knew it was her chance. After being downsized from her last job, she had begged Rob—who just happened to be the personnel manager—to hire her during the Christmas rush.

The soft velvet mitt slid up her thigh and her clit started to throb. She wanted to spread her legs wider and squirm on that candy cane of a cock, but she couldn't let Santa know how much she was affected.

Tasha needed the job to get her through until she started her new position as manager of a health food store opening in mid-January. Even though she invariably bought a lottery ticket twice a week, the state lottery that had just started last spring hadn't made her a millionaire yet. She also wanted Rob to give her a job so she could be close to Reed.

She should stop this right now, but everything felt too wonderful...the hard cock prodding her butt and the velvet mitt exploring her leg. Santa knew how to use that cane and that mitt.

Rob had hesitated about hiring her because they'd already taken on all the extra employees they needed for the season. But after thinking about it, he'd agreed—if she'd help him in return. Expensive items had been disappearing at an escalating rate since Thanksgiving.

After questioning all the employees, they'd received no leads. Even with surveillance cameras turned on day and night, they'd been unable to catch anyone in the act. Although they had a security guard making regular rounds during the hours when the store was closed, nothing had been seen.

Santa's mitt brushed farther up her thigh and another moan sounded deep in her throat. She needed to stop this. Now. Right now. But the velvet felt so good against her skin she forgot to tell him to stop.

She didn't mind playing detective if it placed her close to Reed. She had agreed to keep her eyes and ears open and let Rob know if she saw or heard anything suspicious from the other employees. Rob had even consented to look the other way when she flirted with Reed, though it was against store policy for employees and management to fraternize.

Tasha didn't want to fraternize with Reed, she wanted to fuck him. Fast and hard. Slow and deep. Any which way he wanted and she could imagine. Thoughts of doing the nasty with Reed set her body on fire. After this little tease with Santa, she'd have to go home and break out the toys she hadn't touched in weeks—after picking up a jumbo pack of batteries on her way out.

So Tasha had agreed, but Rob had stashed her back in Auto Maintenance, the least busy department during the Christmas season except for de-icer, snow scrapers, and anti-freeze. But Tasha didn't care. Being in the store every day put her in close proximity to the elder Sinclair brother.

And it worked! She'd come into daily contact with Reed the past few weeks. She sat with him at lunch in the break room nearly every day. He'd come to her department to help shelve stock with her the few times they'd been short-handed. She was impressed that he'd get down and dirty, with a smile on his face.

She'd like to get down and dirty with him in another way, and the resulting perma-grin would never leave his face.

She and Reed had talked and laughed, but he'd never asked her out. She didn't have the nerve to ask him because if he turned her down, her heart would simply break in two.

When Santa's other mitt covered her breast, his thumb and forefinger easily finding the hard, sensitive peak through the layers of red velvet, her knit sweater, and lacey bra, it was time to bring the game to an end.

She knew Rob hadn't had a date in a while, either. Just the day before they'd exchanged horror stories about how long it had been, each trying to outdo the other with increasingly worse scenarios. Did he think because they were both desperate they could become fuck buddies? No way! She could never screw Rob just to get her rocks off, then sleep with Reed if the chance arose. She just couldn't!

Maybe it was time to call his bluff and watch him backpedal. She rocked against his cock, giving him—and her—a last little thrill, then twirled one finger in the luxurious white beard.

"Tasha's been a very naughty girl this year, Santa." She kept her voice low and breathy which wasn't hard to do because she was already turned on. "She couldn't help herself. Being naughty is a lot more fun than being nice. Don't you think?"

Santa nodded as she twirled her finger deeper into the beard.

"Can you think of some way to punish Tasha for being such a naughty girl?"

When Santa nodded again, he pinched her nipple. Hard. Pain mixed with pleasure shot through her. She winced, but the sensation wasn't unpleasant at all. Then his hands slid down and grasped her hips.

Apparently, Rob wasn't going to call an end to it. She pushed the cap off his forehead and looked into baby blue eyes. She grabbed a fistful of beard to yank it down and—

Tasha froze. Baby blues. Rob had brown eyes. Reed had blue eyes. She jerked down the beard and looked into the handsome, chiseled face of Reed Sinclair.
