Bad in Baltimore: Book Six
Life is always looking for ways to screw you over. Scott McDermott survived the foster care system and knows better than to let anyone close, but Liam Walsh is his one vulnerability.
Twice Scott let down his guard, and twice Liam vanished from Scott’s life.
So when Scott comes face-to-face with Liam for the first time in six years, he punches Liam in the nose. Only after Scott’s friend—and Baltimore County police officer—Jamie reads him the riot act does Scott discover that in the intervening years Liam has been to war and lost his leg.
Liam hasn’t had the easiest life either. He took care of his drug-addicted mom when she was unable to take care of herself. He’s fallen in love with Scott twice, but when Liam saw Scott going down the same path as his mother, he left. The lesson that he can’t save everyone has been a painful one for Liam to learn. Maybe what he and Scott had can’t ever be fixed.
Scott and Liam have never fallen out of love—which becomes obvious when they start working together—but what will make this time any different from all the others? Will the third time really be a charm?

Thank you so much to Gigi and Gay Book Reviews for hosting this cover reveal for me.
I want to share a little information for readers.
Scott and Liam are new characters to the Bad in Baltimore books, but there is a connection. Like Jamie, Scott has a classic Ford and he is the one who helped Jamie fix up his truck—and remove the electric door locks—after the truck went into the water at the end of Bad Attitude. All of the previous couples from the Baltimore books make an appearance in Bad Habit, because Scott and Liam need all the help they can get on the way to their HEA.
Scott and Liam have a complicated history. They were together as teenagers, but circumstances separated them. When they met again as young adults, they lived together for two years. Until Liam left Scott with nothing but a short note of goodbye.
I hope you enjoy this tiny teaser from Bad Habit. The first chapter of Bad Habit, showing how Scott and Liam first got together as teenagers is available at Dreamspinner. Please sign up for my newsletter to get more exclusive content.
Bad in Baltimore Series
Liam forced himself to take a long drink from his can of Brooks Blast before making his stiff, halting way across the baked-dry grass and powdery dirt.
As Liam reached the picnic table, Scott leaned back and took a long inhale, then blew the smoke off to his left.
He pointed the cigarette at the can in Liam’s hand. “Don’t you know those things will kill you?”
Laughter and tears fought for space in Liam’s throat. Jesus. Scott. Liam had missed him. Missed them in a thousand different ways.
He couldn’t say that out loud, though. Not when he’d been the one to leave. Though he’d left for Scott. Because of what Liam had forced Scott to be. Liam tried to push something through his dry mouth, a word, a sound even, anything to let Scott know why.
I’m sorry. I was scared. I was stupid. Damn, you look good.
The only sound he could make was “Scott.”
Scott made a disgusted sound in his throat and put the cigarette back to his lips. This time the exhaled stream came right at Liam’s face.
“So.” Scott rested his arms on his knees. “You’ve been keeping busy, huh? Still gonna save the world?”
K.A. Mitchell discovered the magic of writing at an early age when she learned that a carefully crayoned note of apology sent to the kitchen in a toy truck would earn her a reprieve from banishment to her room. Her career as a spin-control artist was cut short when her family moved to a two-story house and her trucks would not roll safely down the stairs. Around the same time, she decided that Ken and G.I. Joe made a much cuter couple than Ken and Barbie and was perplexed when invitations to play Barbie dropped off. She never stopped making stuff up, though, and was thrilled to find out that people would pay her to do it. Although the men in her stories usually carry more emotional baggage than even LAX can lose in a year, she guarantees they always find their sexy way to a happy ending.
