I’m giving away five signed copies of the first book in the Deadglass Trilogy. In a gritty, alternate Seattle, two shape-shifter races fight for control to the Gate to the Land of the Dead. The Kivati, the giant animal people of legend who can transform into totem animals, seek to protect the gate. The Drekar, immortal, soul-eating Norse dragons, seek to destroy it. Three couples will travel to hell and back for the chance to earn Seattle’s grizzly redemption.
In the first of a dazzling new romantic trilogy, one woman’s courageous search plunges her into a millennia-old supernatural war—and an irresistible passion… Nurse Kayla Friday has dedicated her life to science and reason. But for her, Seattle is a place of eerie loss and fragmented, frightening memories. And now the only clue to her sister’s murder reveals a secret battle between two ancient mythologies…and puts Kayla in the sights of lethally-sexy werewolf mercenary Hart. He’ll do whatever it takes to obtain the key to the Gate of the Land of the Dead and free what’s left of his soul. But seducing the determined Kayla is putting them at the mercy of powerful desires neither can control. And as the clock ticks down to hellish catastrophe, the untested bond between Kayla and Hart may lead to the ultimate sacrifice.
HEARTS OF SHADOW, book 2, is out now. It was hailed as “masterful world building…compelling…beautifully imagined,” by Publishers Weekly. Print copy includes the novella, HEARTS OF FIRE, Deadglass 0.5. Link to Hearts of Shadow.
HEARTS OF CHAOS, the thrilling climax of the trilogy, debuts in March of 2014. Check out www.kirabrady.com for extras, art, and news.

In anticipation of Torquere Press’s release of their Charity Sip in September, which includes my short story Drama on Skyline Drive, I’m giving away 3 e-book copies of my novella Mountain Memories.
Mountain Memories description:
After a painful breakup, Jackson “Jax” Chamberlain, pianist and composer, takes a solo trip to the mountains of Colorado for a refreshing change of scenery. Mason Lake, a ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park, volunteers to staff a secluded patrol cabin through an oncoming snowstorm, partly to escape his sometime lover’s demands for a more serious relationship. An ill-advised hike and an animal attack bring Jax and Mason together, allowing them to wait out the storm and explore a heated passion. Their bliss ends, however, with the arrival of an unexpected stranger, a bullet, and Mason’s lover. Will the men recover from such devastating wounds to find each other again?
