Title: Love on the Line
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?

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, which is exactly what happens in Love on the Line by Kimberly Kincaid.
Personal chef Violet Morgan is hired by Jason, her police detective brother, to prepare meals for his injured partner, Noah Blackwell. Jason has no idea that Violet has feelings for Noah. Violet struggles with her feeling because her father was a cop too, and he was killed in the line of duty. Kincaid realistically portrays Violet’s fear of committing to a man with a dangerous job, allowing you to sympathize with Violet. Witty banter that provides many laugh-out-loud moments coupled with heartfelt conversations while the two cook together spark the sexual tension between them. Violet and Noah’s bedroom play is sweet with a touch of spice. Noah does his level best to convince Violet to take a chance with him, which makes him an endearing character.
Love on the Line is a character-driven story with the perfect mix of culinary delights, humor, and romance—a delectable night’s entertainment in the making.
