Bear Essentials

Bear Lake Chronicles 1

by Rain Carrington

A sleepy little town doesn’t know what, or whom, is about to hit it when Ked, Kaden Edmond Donegal, comes to live.

Hyper and determined, Ked longs to be a great forest ranger, taking care of the land, watching over it like its protector. What he didn’t count on is falling in love with the people there nearly as much as the land, and one in particular that doesn’t give him the time of day.
Sean Ashby moved to Bear Lake to hide away from the world after he nearly died while serving in the army. A local artist, he makes his living bringing pieces of wood to life with stories of their own. When he sees Ked, he sees someone who needs tamed, but he doesn’t feel as if he’s up to the job.

Not giving up on the bearded ginger bear, Ked does everything he can to get in the way of the man, and he finally gets what he wants. Or, at least, what he thought he wanted. Sean is a dominant who needs a submissive, and Ked never thought of himself that way. With Ked’s rambling voice hushed and his hyper movements slowed, Sean leads him into a new life he didn’t realize he needs so badly.

The townspeople take him in as family, a man loves him unconditionally, and poachers are in need of catching. Is Ked up for his new life? Can he be a part of a community that is quirky and quiet, or will his own quirks and rarely silent voice make him permanently an outsider?

Contains BDSM and consensual sex between two men. Trigger warnings: abuse, violence and PTSD flashbacks.

About the Author

I've taken a break recently, but after 20 English language books published, as well as several in Italian and French, I thought maybe a break was in order. Now, however, I'm back at the keyboard, about to finish up another in my series, Denver Diaries, and start another new series.

I have been writing for a few years now, after wanting to for many more. Motherhood took up all my time, but now that the kiddos are grown, I've gotten to live my dream of writing. I write only M/M erotica/romance, but will be expanding to M/M shifter, crime drama, and others. Time to spread my wings a little 🙂
