Pine Mountain series, book #5

A little home improvement can go a long way…

Jesse Oliver was a medic in Afghanistan, but back home in Pine Mountain he’s happy to switch gears as the Double Shot bar’s new sous chef. When his apartment floods and his old Army buddy offers the family’s dilapidated lake house as temporary quarters, Jesse thinks a little remodeling on the creaky duplex sounds like a fair return favor. That’s before he sets eyes on the gorgeous woman moving into the other side of the cabin—and discovers she’s his buddy’s kid sister, a.k.a totally off limits.

Kat McMarrin has fought hard for her space, and she’s not too interested in sharing it. Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him. Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…

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. Her digital Line series is all about the hot cops and sexy chefs of Brentsville, New York. She is also the author of the Pine Mountain series, which follows small town singles as they find big-time love. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters. 

A little birdie told me that a real vacation spot inspired Kimberly’s PINE LODGE SERIES. For a fun twist today, l thought I’d change up the questions…just a little.

ANGI: Tell us a little about the REAL Pine Mountain. 
KIMBERLY: It’s in the Blue Ridge Mountains, like fictional Pine Mountain, but it’s a small town in Maryland near Wisp ski resort.

ANGI: Which spot on Pine Mountain is the best for getting lost in a book?
KIMBERLY: All of them! No, really…there’s a spot in the house we rented one year that overlooks the mountain skyline, and it’s just gorgeous. Two huge reading chairs and a spot for your favorite drink. Heaven!

ANGI: Can you tell us about a real-life hero you’ve met?
KIMBERLY: I’ve met lots of people I’d consider heroes. But I went on a tour of Lackland AFB in San Antonio, TX, which is where they train Army medics, like Jesse in JUST ONE TASTE. The three medics who spoke with our group (one of whom is female) are absolute hero material. They were very forthcoming and honest about their experiences.

ANGI: Which fairy tale could be set on Pine Mountain?
KIMBERLY: Oh, good one! Is there a fairy tale with a feisty princess and a reluctant hero? I might need to make one up…

ANGI: Which cartoon character would be fit at Pine Mountain?
KIMBERLY: I’ll go with the military theme and say Captain America.

ANGI: What do you like about the hero, Jesse Oliver, of JUST ONE TASTE?
KIMBERLY: All the things! But since I have to pick one, I’ll say his integrity. He’s an incredibly good man, even if he doesn’t see it.

ANGI: What do you like about the heroine, Kat McMarrin, of JUST ONE TASTE?
KIMBERLY: Kat is a take-charge kind of woman, and she lays it right out on the table.

ANGI: What is the best noise on Pine Mountain?
KIMBERLY: The dinner bell! There’s a lot of good eating in that town.

ANGI: Is living on Pine Mountain a Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
KIMBERLY: Action Adventure. Those folks are always getting into trouble!

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: Where is your ultimate-cost-is-not-an-issue vacation?

KIMBERLY’S NAME GOTTA ANSWER: Food and wine touring all the way across Italy. With cooking lessons! No doubt J

Pine Mountain series, book #6

Talk about a hot lead…

Christmas is coming to Pine Mountain—and it has a way of stirring up memories, good and bad. Nick Brennan may manage the Double Shot bar smooth as good whiskey, but his past is a hot mess. When he runs into a burning building to save a little boy, some people start thinking there’s more to his heroism than holiday spirit. And then the local reporter assigned to the story turns out to be gorgeous Ava Mancuso, the girl who got away.

Ava knows what it’s like to have a past. But the changes she’s seen in Nick since she knew him do more than set off her natural curiosity—his warm eyes and gruff charm have her instincts fired up. Still, all the chemistry in the world doesn’t erase history, even when Nick invites her to his little sister’s mistletoe wedding. Does he have a heart under all those secrets? Or is this going to be just another Christmas past?

KIMBERLY WANTS TO KNOW: What's your favorite vacation spot? Why is it special?


  1. Anywhere.
    Traveling is always relaxing for me wherever I am.
    (Love NO internet camping spots)

  2. My fav vacation spot was always my grandparents' home... miss that...

  3. My vacation spot used to be the beach..living there now so it has to be the small New England town I grew up in. Because I can get great Pizza..real Pizza!! from a Pizzaria I went to growing up and still owned by the family <3

  4. Hi Kimberly and welcome to GLI AS. Congratulations on the Rita nod!

  5. My favorite vacation spot is Lake Toxaway, NC - the lake, the waterfalls and hiking trails. Also Greystone Inn is so romantic and the food is amazingly great. We spent our honeymoon there.
