Dr. Malcolm Styles is the charming and adorably sappy hero in The Perks of
Higher Ed
and The Wish of Xmas
.  Dr. Sky Ellis
loves Malcolm just the way he is, including his junk food junkie habits and his
love for all things sweet and chocolate. In The
Wish of Xmas Present
, Sky cooks Malcolm sweet potato pie and triple layer
chocolate cake, two family recipes she learned how to make from her mother.
“So, you’d rather have candy corn and caramel apples
than the sweet potato pie and triple layer chocolate cake I made you?”
“You made me what?”
“You heard me.”
“Where are they?”
“In your refrigerator.”
“How did you get them in there?”
“I used the spare key you left at my apartment.”
“You little… I don’t care. Let’s go.”

Yes, Malcolm loves desserts almost as much as he loves Sky.
“Since you didn’t bring any whipping cream, buy some
for my birthday trip. Butterscotch, caramel, orange, or lemon. Chocolate,
salted peanut butter, and brown sugar cinnamon would be redundant. I got those
already taken care of.”
Sky’s eyes snapped open and stared at Malcolm. “You
did not just say that.”
“You know I’m right. Chocolate, salted peanut
butter, and brown sugar cinnamon, you’re getting all three now.” He pulled Sky
even closer and whispered in her ear. “You love it. It’s okay to admit being a
Malcolm Styles junk food junkie. I’m the best kind of food addiction, and you
get a work out when you have me. A win-win.”

Now that Malcolm knows Sky is a whiz in the kitchen, especially with desserts, he
made her a top ten list of his favorite holiday desserts. He’s hoping, with a
bit of coaxing and a lot of kissing, Sky will make his holiday dream come true.
If you think sweet treats are Malcolm’s only wish for Christmas, think again.
Our romantic and sappy hero has plans for Sky, a present for their future.

Here’s Malcolm’s Top Ten Xmas
Desserts. What’s your favorite?

Book Trailer:


“Oh my god. So
good, Sky. So damn good.” Malcolm moaned, licking out his tongue and rimming
his lips. “So good, baby.”
He moaned again
and again.
Sky smiled. How
could she not with Malcolm’s passionate reaction?
“Come here,
you’re a mess.”
Sky reached for
Malcolm, but he intercepted the hand going to his face. “Not with the paper
towel. Use your tongue.”
“My tongue?”
“Yeah, I want
you to taste yourself on me.”
“You mean taste
my cooking on you.”
“No, baby, I
said what I meant. If you want to remove the chocolate frosting from my lips,
use that long, sexy tongue of yours.”
Heat and desire
flooded Sky’s system, fueling the low buzz of need watching Malcolm savor her
triple layer chocolate cake had created within her.
He ate another
piece, fork going to his mouth. Lips parted, tongue peeked out and tasted
before Malcolm consumed the moist, rich chocolate. “If you want to clean me up
do it properly, Dr. Ellis.”
Oh, Sky damn
sure wanted to lick him clean. When Malcolm had made a show of dragging her
from his sister’s house, with the intent of driving them back to his home to
eat the cake and pie Sky had made for his birthday, she’d assumed, like
everyone else, it was all for show, and they would have sex as soon as they
reached his house. But no, being a true junk food junkie, Malcolm had gone
straight to his refrigerator, found the desserts and pulled them out. He didn’t
even bother with the ice cream Sky had stored in his freezer when she’d put
away the sweet potato pie and triple layer chocolate cake.
They sat beside
each other, a half-eaten pie across the table and a fist-high slice of cake on
a saucer in front of Malcolm. He’d consumed a tall glass of milk after his
third slice of chocolate cake. How he wasn’t full and his suit not bursting
from the seams, she didn’t know.
Sky scooted her
chair around, so they faced each other. “You’re a messy eater.”
Dark-brown eyes
lowered to sensual slits. “You knew that about me already.”
Malcolm’s erotic
voice conjured a ghost-like feel of his head between her thighs, mouth and
tongue eating his fill of her.
