Excerpt:

It took a long time for Angel to catch his breath, but when he did, he ducked his head into Garcia’s hair. “Sorry. I got carried away, huh?”
Garcia turned and made Angel face him. “Don’t do that. It meant something. It meant everything.”
Angel searched Garcia’s face for humor and didn’t find a bit. “You felt that too?”
“Yeah. I…uh…I think we just got married?”
Angel rolled his eyes, chuckling, “Only you would see that as a marriage.”
Garcia pushed him down and narrowed his eyes in mock anger. “Tell me, smart ass, what did you see it as?”
Angel said, seriously, “Taking back what was mine all along.” He kissed Garcia’s bruising lips. “My eyes, my smile, my heart. Forever.”

Nanee's Review:

Rain did it again, she created amazingly unique characters that will stay in your heart for a long time. Angel and Garcia I loved them from the beginning, their friendship and then love for each other grew through many years and many heartaches. I loved the writing style how the author brought you right from the start of their lives together through the growing pains of becoming men. Garcia is so damn sweet throughout but I love the growing up and the changes in him. Angel I loved his strength and his leadership but I love how he relied on his Best friend and leaned on him to get back to happy. These guys are sexy as hell and scorching together. Love the secondary characters, Jim Jam, Chris all the guys! Love how they stayed true to each other and had each others backs Love Rafe what a great guy. Love Angels family so caring and proud of their son and grand son. A lot of emotion in this story, I felt it in my heart. Guy and Sal I cannot even say what I felt like doing to them. Great story, beautiful and sexy characters and a roller coaster of emotion. Loved it. 5 stars 



Author Bio:

Rain Carrington started writing when she was just a teenager in Trinidad, Colorado but didn’t start writing M/M romance until much later. Through the years many of her gay male friends told stories of heartache and the struggle to find “the one” so she told them stories, fantasies all about them and their future cowboy, fireman, biker or policeman. When she found a writing site that encouraged her to write them down she started what was an adventure like she never had before.
Her first story, Cabin fever, about a young man searching for love and finding it wrapped in a member of a mafia family gained her readers who cheered for more. She knew then that she had found her place in the world. To make stories of love and kink that not only her readers but she could get lost in as well.
Rain now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado but has traveled most of the US. Her last road trip to San Francisco gave her characters still coming out…no pun intended…in her newer stories. Rain has severe scoliosis which makes it hard for her to do all the things she used to love but it did give her the time to write that she never had before. She fights for lgbt rights from her home as best she can now and keeps in close contact with her friends that fight on two good legs to point them where they should go. She is a fervent believer that one door never closes without another opening so there are no limits she can’t get past.
Of all the people in the world no one has encouraged and supported her like her friends, many of them writers themselves, and her family. There is never a dull moment in her home where laughter is in the air 24/7 and everyone knows to avoid the computer screen when she sits in front of it. They never know what kind of beautiful man love they may see. Rain calls it research, they call it, “there she goes again!”

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
Not yet, but hope to someday soon!

Who designs your covers?
I do! That is so much fun! I pass the mock ups by my street team and they give me votes on yea or nay. Playing on Photoshop has become a great way for me to be creative even when my writing brain has shut down.

What’s the hardest part of writing your books?
Having quiet in the house. I live with family and we are a loud bunch. We also have three cats and two dogs in a small place so they make it interesting!
