Book Trailer


If you want a gay romance to take you into the future and keep your heart beating like crazy wondering if the two guys you’re rooting for will actually make it out alive, then Blood Lines is the book for you. A.L. Bates is great at writing thrillers, based on this novella that kept me at the edge of my seat, eyes glued to my tablet, while I read on and on to see what happens in the end.

Mark and Nate have an interesting dynamic. It’s clear they love each other, but the looming yet almost never present Danny, Nate’s brother and Mark’s husband, makes it impossible for either of them to show the other how they feel. Even if Danny puts them both in danger of the end-up-dead variety.

Riding along with Mark and Nate as they try to make it to Danny to get a cure for Mark (who his husband managed to infect with a terrible virus), you’ll realize you’re holding your breath more often than not. The thrill of the chase is as good as this complicated romance, and makes for an amazing read.
