Congrats to Melissa, who won the copy of Broken Bones, Mended Hearts by William Cooper, which is being released today by Dreamspinner Press! (Congrats, William!)
Somewhat recently (via Ethan Day’s monthly Gay Day), I won an ebook copy of P.A. Brown’s m/m romantic suspense, L.A. Heat, which I already owned. P.A. has graciously allowed me to give that copy away to one lucky reader! Thanks, P.A. 🙂
In L.A. Heat, a serial killer is on the loose in Los Angeles and he’s targeting gay men. LAPD Detective David Laine – himself gay but deeply closeted – is assigned to the case with his homophobic partner, Martinez Diego. The nature of the crimes and the brutalization of the victims bring disturbing emotions to the surface for David. Laine and his partner have a suspect: Christopher Bellamere – an openly gay California “golden boy” who crossed paths with two of the victims before their deaths. But when cop and suspect meet, an immediate attraction complicates the case and David Laine’s very private life.
As David works to find the killer – and Chris works to clear his name – they both seek to understand the complex feelings that are growing between them. Fast-paced and intricately plotted, L.A. Heat, author P.A. Brown’s debut novel, will have you on the edge of your seat right until the last page is turned.
If you enjoy L.A. Heat, you’ll want to pick up the rest of the series: L.A. Mischief, L.A. Boneyard, and L.A. Bytes.
At 22 years of age, P.A. Brown’s life changed forever when she sold everything she owned and moved 2,000 miles away to a city she’d never visited, where she knew no one. Coming from a sheltered life, she spent the next eight years doing her own wild and crazy thing. She roamed the good and bad streets of Los Angeles, doing things that in retrospect were probably downright idiotic. Knowing nothing about the city (or any big city) she made the brilliant decision to get a cheap apartment. She found one, in the heart of a crime-ridden section of Hollywood, one she later found out was called a war zone by the LAPD. There were stabbings and shootings and assaults every weekend. Thus was her introduction to life in a big American city.
Most of her time in L.A. was spent in the underbelly of the city, including a month or so living out of a car. She visited Skid Row, spent time on the streets of Hollywood, and befriended a bartender who was killed after she went home with a customer. And you wonder why she writes crime novels? During the 80s, P.A. saw the advent of a terrible disease no one understood that became known as AIDS. Being immersed in the gay community, P.A. knew a lot of people who died in those days. For a brief period, she was even a “Valley Girl,” living within spitting distance of the famous Sherman Oaks Galleria. Does she miss it? Every minute of every day.

Yay! I’m entering. Sounds like a great one!
.-= Morning GlowÂ´s last blog ..Review of "Flirting with Forever" by Gwyn Cready =-.
Bats aren’t good eats, kitten – but they are great for eating bugs so we like them.
.-= trekÂ´s last blog ..Clearing house blogs =-.
I’ll try for the book. I’ve heard good things.
Did you fix your screen?
.-= TamÂ´s last blog ..Monday Update =-.
May- Why bats? They are bereft of redsparklyfuzzy goodness.
.-= LorraineÂ´s last blog ..The Tide Is Turning =-.
Ew May, really? Did you enjoy the bat, or your Mom’s reaction to it?!
.-= BrigitteÂ´s last blog ..WIPs Gone Wild! =-.
I’d love to try it!
Ok, for sure I’m gonna win this time!
I love that bio. There’s a way to make lemons out of lemonade! Good luck with the book, it looks great!
.-= Carolyn CraneÂ´s last blog ..Somebody’s got mysterious mail =-.
I agree – great bio.
I spent a good minute squinting at the cover picture – I could not figure out what the bottom half of the image was. At first I thought it was a cat head…LOL, don’t ask. 😉
This book sounds like a lot of fun. Please count me in! I’m hoping ebooks will move me firmly in the 100% able to knit and read at the same time category.
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..for the birds =-.
Mayhem, honestly what would you do with a bat? It would scare your mom so much she’d forget to feed you and bats don’t taste that good.
Count me in please. 🙂
.-= LilyÂ´s last blog ..New Books Available – Week 20 =-.
We like bats because they are marvelous isectivores, but they can also have rabies, so they are not good in the house. I’d stick to the pink furry mice, May.
.-= BrendaÂ´s last blog ..Catching up in photos =-.
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any of PA’s stories before, so thanks for the giveaway.
Glad you got the screen fixed, but sad for our dear May. All the fun is gone.
And you bet I want to win this! I have my dear Miranda crossing her paws as we speak.
I don’t think Mom wants another bat May but a girl can dream right?
Those flying furry things are vera cool… 😉
.-= LeaÂ´s last blog ..Duckie and Andie together? No. Way!! =-.
Oh, kitty, did you like watching mom chase after that bat? Or did you laugh at her as she cowered underneath the kitchen table? I guess to you the bat is just a little mouse with wings. Go play with a jingle bell ball. It’s safer and it won’t make you sick.
Also, please tell your mom that I’d love to win this book. I love books and I never win. *bottom lip trembles adorably*
.-= EyreÂ´s last blog ..Recent Reads & Quotations =-.
