“Kimberly Kincaid knows how to whip up a delicious love story.” —Susan Donovan
If You Can’t Stand The Heat…
Teagan O’Malley can handle a crisis. She’s a paramedic, it’s her job. But she never expected to land in the kitchen of her father’s pub, with no notice, no cash, and no room for error. The kitchen is not her favorite place. Lucky for her, she just scraped a bad-boy chef off the pavement after a motorcycle accident—and something about him says he can turn up the heat in more ways than one.
Adrian Holt has had a rough few years, and he’s not eager to get tangled up in anything more complicated than a good risotto. But with a broken arm and a head full of bad memories, he needs a challenge to keep him sane. Teagan’s dare-me attitude and smoldering mess of a bar are just what the doctor ordered. And the two of them together might cook up some even better medicine…

“A sweet and sexy treat!” —Bella Andre
“Smart, fun, and heartwarming.”—Jill Shalvis
Tension, drama, and sweet nothings mingle in the tasty fourth Pine Mountain contemporary (after Stirring Up Trouble). Snarky chef Adrian Holt's motorcycle accident leaves him with a broken arm and the beginnings of a serious stir-crazy crisis. Kitchen-phobic paramedic Teagan O'Malley is at her wits' end; the chef at her father's bar has quit, and the Friday night crowd is building. Then Adrian walks in and offers his services. As the battle of wills continues from an earlier encounter, Adrian and Teagan simultaneously fight against and stir up the heat in the kitchen and their hearts. Threats from a loan shark and a hard-hearted parole officer add the dramatic elements; unfortunately, the Pennsylvanian Blue Ridge Mountains setting lacks real local color. The plot is fairly ordinary, but a last-minute twist will make readers gasp. Foodies and series fans will relish this spirited journey of love and happiness.
