New Release e-novella, Love On The Line, March 2013!


I had the pleasure of meeting this beauty at RWA 2012 and let me say, she is as adorable as she looks. I owe my amazing week to a small group of extremely friendly authors, of which she is a part. I learned a lot at the feet of the gracious Kimberly and I'm not just talking about where she picks up her fabulous footwear.  But, I digress, without further ado, I give you...

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance novels that split the difference between sexy and sweet, taking the traditional idea of boy-meets-girl and infusing it with a sassy magic all her own. She believes in fiery yet flawed characters destined for a crash-course in falling in love-- usually the hard way-- and injects her trademark humor as well as poignant touches into her writing to create her stories.

Kimberly's writing journey has led down some bumpy roads (that first manuscript is under the bed, where it is very likely to stay), but there has been some fresh pavement too (her second manuscript earned her very first contest final, and landed the fantastic Maureen Walters at the Curtis Brown Literary Agency). One thing is certain -- the wild ride of being a writer is a lot richer in both its ups and downs because of friends and readers along the path.

When Kimberly's not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as "The Pleather Bomber", she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to eclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. She resides in northern Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.

Love On The Line  by Kimberly Kincaid

   Violet Morgan puts the personal in personal chef, catering to clients who want the full cooking experience rather than a culinary drop-and-dash. But when her brother’s police detective partner is injured in the line of duty and needs help during recovery, she makes an exception. Violet lost her father to the job seven years ago, and worries for her brother’s safety every day. The last thing she wants is to get up-close with her brother’s career-cop partner…again.

   For Noah Blackwell, being a detective isn’t just a lifestyle, it’s a legacy. So when he’s forced to take mandatory leave and deal with the trauma amnesia keeping him from identifying his shooter, it’s a literal case of adding insult to injury— and now he’s got to deal with an unwanted culinary caregiver on top of it. Never mind that he and Violet shared a steamy, secret kiss last New Year’s Eve. She rejects everything related to the job, and Noah’s not about to be distracted from recovering his memory and getting back to what he does best. No matter how pretty Violet is.

   Despite their differences, Violet and Noah share a surprising bond in the kitchen that grows into something neither of them expect. But as Noah heals and their feelings for each other extend from the kitchen to the bedroom, Violet knows she must make an impossible choice. She may wear her heart on her sleeve when it comes to food, but can she risk it all to put love on the line?

Anything For You by Jessica Scott

Adorable! What a wonderfully written Love Story! Although, if you haven't yet read the rest of the author's series you should do so.  This isn't a stand alone, but a continuation of a couple from Because of You, the first book in the Coming Home Series.

Now, on to what I thought of the novella. What an emotional story! Well written, attention holding, heart-wrenching then warming read!  I loved it and will definitely be picking up the entire series.

My husband is ex-Army and I usually have a very hard time reading anything to do with deployments, September 11th or combat. That being said, I had the pleasure of meeting this writer at the 2012 RWA Conference in Anaheim, CA.  Her personality alone won me over to reading anything she'll ever write. After a bit of initial hesitation I was pleased to find that the over-whelming honesty of both character's plight had my heart more involved than my own stressful memories.

Thank you for such a well written, emotionally engaging, love story!
