Sugar and Spice is a short story in the anthology titled The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap, with fellow authors, Donna Kauffman and Kate Angell.
And for me, nothing is sexier than a man who knows how to cook and knows his way around cooking utensils. Pastry chef Pete Mancuso is Hot, Hot, Hot.
If you are in the mood for a steamy holiday read and scorching sexual chemistry, Kincaid delivers more than enough to whet your appetite. And I love Kincaid's humor that shines throughout the story as things heat up between Lily and Pete as they both compete in a cookie baking competition. Both have their own agenda, but are not prepared for the growing intimacy and feelings between them.
Lily is needing money to get her own storefront when she catches wind of a Christmas cookie contest--with the grand prize of $10,000--and the answer to her dreams is in her grasp. She is determined to win it.
Pete Mancuso is just as resolute to win the contest. He has to win and get his name out there. His winning could land him the head pastry chef at L'Orangerie. He is cocky, and confident of his chance to claim the winning prize.
But an unexpected run-in (literally) with Lily, a woman from his past, has Pete frazzled with sexual heat. And Lily refuses to be taken by the man who broke her best friend's heart.
As part of the competition, Lily and Pete are paired up and forced to work together. Their differences when it comes to baking creates more than a sizzle as they try to agree on how to prepare a delicious pomegranate pistachio shortbread with a dark chocolate glaze.
Did your mouth just salivate at that visual?
With Sugar and Spice, be prepared to not only enjoy the sweet romance between Pete and Lily, but go away craving decadent desserts and mouth-watering delights.
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.
