Rain Carrington Is Here Today With An Exclusive Excerpt And Giveaway On The “Pappy Don’t Preach” Blog Tour

Blurb:

They say opposites attract but in the case of a preacher and a man of science, things get downright incendiary. Mark (Pappy) Rafferty is an ex priest recently moved to Apishipa Creek to start his own church in the beauty of the Rockies. Nathan Lee is the smooth talking Atheist doctor of the town’s clinic. They start jogging together every morning for safety but their hearts become in peril from one another.

Dayton Binx is a submissive actively searching for a Dom. Travis Walton feels a kinship to the younger man because of their similar backgrounds but soon passes the pain in the neck off to Pappy. Pappy, who believes nothing can come of the overwhelming attraction he feels for the doctor, takes the sub on and begins to fall in love with him. A slip of long awaited passion between he and Nathan threatens to tear Pappy’s sub from him, but never underestimate a sub on a mission! Continue reading

Rain Carrington Joins Us Today To Talk Pride, “Penny’s Lane”, And Giveaways


I am not simply a writer of gay romance and erotica; I am an ally to the gay community. I have been for as long as I can remember (and that is a LONG time). This weekend I was lucky enough to make it to Denver for Pride. My daughter and I drove to the bigger city and from the moment we got into Denver we felt it, a feeling of freedom and happiness that came over the both of us. From the minute we got there to the minute Denver was in the rearview we smiled.

Once on in the city we parked and walked to the parade route. Right away we saw people dressed in rainbows…tutus, leggings, boas, hats, skirts and kilts in rainbow colors. I had a painted shirt and a rainbow flag around my waist so I blended in just fine.

There was not a scowl or frown among the people headed to the street where the parade would pass. There was not an angry word or face without a smile. It was refreshing.

As we sat on the lawn of our state capital, we looked around at children and older people, straight and gay, people in groups and alone all coming out to celebrate diversity. That was a little like a contradiction in terms because we didn’t feel diverse or different at all. We felt like a family or at the very least old friends.

Anatomy Of A Sex Scene – A Guest Post And Giveaway By Rain Carrington

Starting a sex scene. Preparation! Coffee is key, a cigarette at the ready (yes, I smoke), working lighter, and something in the background to focus me. I prefer music or The Waltons. Yes, the old 70’s TV show. I’ve found that particular show gives me the best background for my writing, especially the sex scenes, don’t ask me why!

Sitting in front of the blank white screen is never so intimidating as when a sex scene is coming up in the story. For sure there is excitement! There is nothing like a good sex scene. However, there are also nerves. I’ve written quite a few sex scenes. In the same book there may be over a dozen so to come up with something new is like climbing a the same mountain over and over trying to see a different view each time.
