Many thanks to L.A. Witt for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming m/m romance, From Out in the Cold, for a lucky commenter to win! From Out in the ColdÂ will be released by Loose Id on December 4.
Neil Dalton’s foundation is already cracking. Grief, guilt, and PTSD have ruled his life since a terrible crime tore his world apart last year, and he’s dreading a holiday visit with the family he simultaneously needs and resents. Then someone from his past shows up and rattles that shaky foundation right out from under him.
First a war nearly destroyed Jeremy Kelley. Then his family threw him out when he needed them the most, and now he’s barely holding on emotionally. He spends his last dollar to get to Chicago and prays his former best friend doesn’t leave him out in the cold.
Together, Neil and Jeremy spend the holidays with Neil’s family in their hometown of Omaha. They struggle to deal with families, flashbacks… and feelings that haven’t even begun to fade since their last failed attempt at more than friends. As they try to repair their fractured psyches and rebuild damaged bridges, they rely on each other more than ever, but they can’t deny the mutual attraction that’s existed since before they were both emotionally battered and scarred. If they couldn’t make it work back then, how in the world can they pull it off now?
About L.A. Witt
L.A. Witt is an M/M erotica writer who, after three years in Okinawa, Japan, has recently relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a three-headed clairvoyant parakeet named Fred. There is some speculation that this move was not actually because of her husbandâ€™s military orders, but to help L.A. close in on her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who has also recently transferred to Omaha. So, donâ€™t anyone tell Lauren. Sheâ€™s not getting away this timeâ€¦

Behold, the Paw of Mayhem!
Cat reintroduction is going pretty well. Chaos hisses whenever May’s within two feet of him – even if he has to crawl under the blanket on the chair to where she’s napping for that to happen. *rolls eyes* Mayhem just looks at Mr. Hissy McHisserPants with a perfect “What is your problem?” expression, then ignores him or saunters away. Not quite ready to leave them together overnight or when I’m in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays, though.
