Back Cover Blurb:

Previously published in the anthology Santa, Baby, HOT TOY is now available as a standalone e-story for the first time!

Mayhem ensues under the mistletoe as a determined shopper grabs the very last hot toy action figure off the shelf, only to find herself plunged into the middle of a real-life spy game and in the arms of a sexy secret agent...

My Review:

Crusie has created a cute, fun story that puts the chase for the perfect gift in a new light. She cranks up the craziness of the season a few notches while taking readers on a bit of a wild ride. Intrigue meets with humour in a way that had me laughing and gasping. Due to the brief length of the tale, character development is minimal so I really couldn’t connect with them. It doesn’t affect the story much if you’re looking for a quick, light, fluffy read.

This was a fun, cute short story perfect for an afternoon beside the Christmas tree.
