Sweet and spicy, and that’s just the cake!

The festive season is in full swing but Emily hates it and just wants it over as quickly as possible. Jim finds out why and shares his Christmas with her and she uncovers her Christmas Spirit as she rediscovers her lust and sexuality. Includes a short selection of sexy holiday poetry!

Told in first person, Christmas Cake is the story of pastry shop owner Emily who, after the death of her husband, detests the holidays. His death ruined her Christmas spirit and she has yet to recapture it. Jim, a patron of her shop, seems to be filled with the Christmas spirit and tries to bring a little of the holiday joy to Emily. As she spends time with Jim she rediscovers her Christmas spirit and a passionate nature she forgot she had.

Christmas Cake was a lovely story featuring an older heroine and hero. I really enjoyed watching as Jim helps Emily to heal and find joy as she discovers the true meaning of Christmas. The two also discover a passionate relationship. I do wish we had a little bit of Jim’s perspective though, but since this was a first-person story that did not happen. I would have liked to have known a little about what he was thinking as he interacted and learned more about Emily.

In addition to the story, the author has also included some very naughty holiday poems that readers might find enjoyable.
