Description from

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…


Unless you want to wake the entire household with your laughs, you better not read this at night in bed.  I nearly choked trying to stifle laughs as I read this at 11pm.  This is a mad-cap Christmas adventure with bad guys and good guys and….wait a minute, who is the bad guy and who is the good guy?  Jennifer Crusie can write humor that is not silly (hate that) but very witty.  Even though there is a lot of slap-stick scrambling it all plays well in this delight of a short story.  Yes, this is the perfect quick read for when the holidays are starting to get you down.
