Kristijonasario has spent a year searching for the perfect bride but when all his efforts proved futile he turns to the internet for assistance. One particular website, ‘Finding Your Perfect Mrs. Claus,’ even goes so far as to allow you to choose Naughty or Nice. Alex was on the ‘nice’ list. Now how was Kris to know that he should have clicked on the ‘more’ button and he would have learned that his chosen wife is in reality a stripper.
Kris is horrified at his faux pas. The wedding has already been performed and they’ve shared vows. It doesn’t matter that Alex was unaware of what was happening. It cannot be undone. Kris had hoped to reenergize the power of the House of Kringle with his marriage but Alex’s naughty behavior has surely doomed them all. While Kris believes he’s made a terrible mistake in marrying Alex he’ll soon discover that there’s great pleasure to be found in being naughty – and the power behind misbehaving can be even stronger than being nice.
Zenobia Requist has forever blown my image of Mrs. Claus as a cherubic grandmother figure. I now envision her wearing a bustier and stilettos, cursing a blue streak and tempting Santa into doing much more than worrying about checking his lists twice. I have to confess I got a wicked thrill out of Alex’s influence on Kris. He’s so embarrassed by her actions but it’s obvious he loves her audacity. STRIPPING CHRISTMAS is one that is sure to have people talking. I know I’ve mentioned it several times in discussions I’ve had since I read this story and even now just thinking about it makes me smile.
