Hugh has put his marketing talents to work for the store he owns with his friends, The Fantastic Five. He knows a hunk when he sees one, and the broken action figure has model material written all over his muscled body. Hugh repairs him and places the figure in the center of his new ad campaign. But when Hugh finishes taking the photos, the figure, magically returned to life, comes out from behind the camera and into Hugh’s life.

A model before he was a soldier and then an enchanted action figure, Talon is no stranger to the camera. The handsome man behind it, however, is completely new and all his. Talon is determined to show Hugh that a picture is worth a thousand kisses. But inside his chest beats the heart of a hero, and when he interrupts a robbery, he’s wounded, and Talon might lose not only his magazine-cover good looks, but Hugh.

You’ll never look at an action figure the same way again! Injured in battle, Talon is given a second chance at life – a real life – by the Toymaker. Mary Winter begins to weave her magical tale from there, bringing Talon to Earth solely for Hugh.

I love the freshness of the idea – bringing an action figure to life in order to help a marketing agent help his friends save their struggling comic store. Talon is the perfect action hero – handsome, built, and slightly cocky, and yet, still sweet and seductive. Hugh and his band of friends are the kind of people I’d hang out with on a Friday afternoon – lots of fun and teasing with this lot. The instant attraction between our heroes is spontaneous and hot!

Whether you’re a fan of comic books and action figures or not, this story is sure to appeal to you. A charismatic action figure turned male model and a hunky, if workaholic marketing agent desperate to help his friends and a cast of zany friends – what more could a story need? Oh, yeah – hot, steamy sex! Well then, you’ll not be disappointed at all with MISSION: POSSESSION!
