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!
With more intrigue, suspense and hot action between sexy men, Apishipa Creek heats up once again as three men find an uncommon bond while two others are ripped apart because of stubborn pride. Can everyone live happily ever after or will those wishing revenge complete what they started and kill those who get in their way?
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.
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!”
I loved this book! Since my favorite book of all time is the first book in this series, I had high hopes for this installment and it did not disappoint at all! This book has so many layers to the story that it is like a season of your favorite TV show in a book form. The characters are well rounded and believable, you feel like you know them. This book is so honest and open, it shows more truth of what the BDSM world is truly like. I also love the fact that the characters from the previous books play a huge part in the story lines of this one.
Mark (Pappy) Rafferty is a 33 year old ex priest who is still preaching the word of God, just not for the catholic church. He had to leave because he could not be there in good faith while they insisted that gay was evil. He is also a Dom.
Travis Walton is the owner of the local BDSM club and a Dom. His sub is Lonnie Lane, the deputy sheriff of Apashipa Creek.
When Binx strolls into the club with his swagger and rude mouth, Travis cannot believe it. Their fathers are business rivals, and Travis can't believe that Binx is in the lifestyle. After talking to Binx, Travis is fearful that he will get hurt because he isn't careful. Binx just wants a man to own him, and he is impatient. Against Lonnie's wishes, Binx comes to stay with them, and Travis enlists help to train the wayward sub. But he needs a full time Dom, so Travis talks to the free Doms and Pappy is interested. Pappy is torn because he has feelings for Nathan, but maybe this will help him get over that. Pappy and Binx quickly start falling for each other. Trouble in paradise comes for Travis and Lonnie when Lonnie's job interferes with his D/s relationship. After being told to come home, he finds himself without a Dom when he doesn't heed the directive. The dramas urrounding these two is heartbreaking. Meanwhile, Binx finds out about Pappy and Nathan and he wants his Master to be happy no matter what. His strength is amazing, and he really goes to the mat to do what he believes is right. There is still more to this story, and we get to see Jack, Rebel, Lin, Mike, Lynn, Denis and the others. The bad guys from the bombing still haven't been caught so hang on tight, this book has so much going that you can't wait to turn the page. I went through every emotion there is while reading this book and I know two things for sure: I love this book, and I am going to re read it a lot! Grab your copy if you love sexy gay men in hot situations!
