All this curvy girl wants for Christmas is the scarred, growly former stuntman who sets her world ablaze.
Call me a Scrooge, but I've never been big on holidays.
When you spend them alone, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about.
Until Laura Groves waltzes into my life and turns it upside down.
Hollywood's curvy It Girl is too young and beautiful for a scarred, used-up man like me.
But that doesn't stop me from claiming her anyway.
Except now the world thinks she's hiding a big secret, and it's up to me to put the rumors to rest.
I'll protect her, even if it means taking a job on her new Christmas movie, The Naughty List.
I have one Christmas wish this year: Kaiden Huxley.
He's the sexiest man I've ever met.
When he kisses me, the whole world falls out of focus.
There's only one problem.
A horrible accident left him scarred, and he doesn't think he's good enough.
But when my life spins out of control, he doesn't hesitate to face his past for me.
Now, it's up to me to teach this incredible man just how perfect he really is.
Before this movie wraps on Christmas, this grumpy former stuntman will be all tied up in a bow.
If the world stops throwing us curveballs, that is.

But when the lights illuminate and the camera rolls, the action on set transforms from frosty to steamy faster than Santa can empty his sack down the chimney.
As Christmas Eve approaches, will these star-crossed lovers go their separate ways, or will they choose to stay on The Naughty List... together?
