Blurb for PUSHING THE LINE:
Free-spirited artist Harper McGee is happy to go wherever the wind takes her…until her flight pattern sends her back to Brentsville, New York for her beloved grandmother funeral. Harper’s grief turns to shock, however, when she discovers her grandmother has named her sole proprietor of her candy shop, Luscious. But she has no intention of being anchored to one place, and anyway, she doesn’t know the first thing about running a kitchen or a business. Selling Luscious is the only viable option— until the shop catches fire due to old wiring. Fixing the damage requires major work, and if Harper wants to put it on the market, she needs major help.
Thrill-seeking firefighter Aaron Fisher has never walked away from a challenge or a friend. So when a fellow firefighter is hurt on a call and can’t complete a side job for his contracting company, Aaron’s quick to jump in. He’s done plenty of fix ‘er ups for his buddy in the past, and despite his silver spoon upbringing and his no-holds-barred attitude, swinging a hammer suits Aaron just fine. That is, until he discovers the client is the same impetuous woman he forcibly dragged from the flames of Brentsville’s local candy shop.
The more time Harper and Aaron spend at Luscious, the hotter their attraction burns, daring them both to shed their tough outer layers to reveal the tender desires beneath. But when a buyer makes Harper the offer of a lifetime, she must choose between roots and wings. Can two people who live in the moment learn to see past the moment, or will Aaron and Harper always live their lives pushing the line?

Harper McGee is heartbroken at the loss of her beloved grandmother, Isabelle. Now with the fate of Izzy’s candy shop, Luscious, left in her hands, Harper decides the best thing to do is sell it and move on. It’s what she’s always done – keep moving, never settling in one place for too long because that way she doesn’t have to commit to any one place or any one person.
When the candy shop nearly goes up in flames, Harper is thrown together with a sexy risk taker very much like herself, only Aaron Fisher is firmly grounded in Brentsville. Soon he makes her want to settle down, too, but can she?
PUSHING THE LINE, novella four in the Line Series by Kimberly Kincaid is as sweet as the candy shop, Luscious, and imagined scent of pecan clusters that Harper teaches Aaron to make before they make some magic themselves in the bedroom. It’s a wonderful climax, if you excuse the pun, for a wonderful series featuring some of the most delightful, sexy, and real characters I’ve ever met.
I loved that Kimberly gathered her couples together to help Harper discover that she belongs in Brentsville, and with Aaron. I’m sad to see this series end but I know that Kimberly has more coming to us soon. But whether you’ve read the complete Line Series up to this point or are new to the series as a whole, I highly recommend PUSHING THE LINE by Kimberly Kincaid. Don’t miss out on the first three in the series – LOVE ON THE LINE, DRAWING THE LINE, OUTSIDE THE LINES – all novellas and all delightful love stories that will make you laugh, make you sigh, make you fall in love, and probably make you hungry since Kimberly always includes a chance for her couples to cook together – in the kitchen. *wink*
About the Author:
Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she'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 éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a 2011 RWA Golden Heart® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She has written two digital novellas, LOVE ON THE LINE and DRAWING THE LINE, about hot cops and sexy chefs, with a third novella, OUTSIDE THE LINES, due this summer. She is also thrilled to have collaborated on a Christmas anthology with Donna Kauffman and Kate Angell, titled THE SUGAR COOKIE SWEETHEART SWAP, to kick off her Pine Mountain foodie series with Kensington this October. Kimberly’s first full-length novel, TURN UP THE HEAT, will follow in February 2014. She resides in northern Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
