Charles Raines, is my special guest today

Today, I have Charles Raines, a gay author as my special guest. 

Raines writes m/m fiction with reams of romance, a sprinkling of erotica, a touch of mystery, and a splash of suspense. 




The Man With The Mandolin is Charles Raines’ latest novel. It’s a gay erotic mystery and essentially a love story.

                                   What’s it about?

          Ballet is in the blood of the Riche family. It is their passion and their livelihood. After the death of his father, duty dictates that only son, Charles, who has no flair for business or ballet, has little option but to support his doting mother and overbearing spinster aunt in their quest to steer the failing dance troupe back to success.

          But, mesmerized by a street musician, Charles yearns for another life filled with love and romance. And when he unwittingly becomes involved with a charismatic principal dancer and a devious Italian waiter, his world tumbles into turmoil, dredging up physical and emotional scars best left buried.

          With intrigue, blackmail, and events from the past threatening to plunge the family’s reputation into jeopardy and ruin his own chance of happiness, Charles finds hope and solace in the man with the mandolin. Sometimes dreams do come true. And maybe his will too.

  1. Hi, Richard! I am one of your biggest fans … as you probably have guessed! I am intrigued by your ability to string words together to form a sparling necklace of brilliant images. I also enjoy your flawed and uber-masculine characters, your ability to weave a tight mystery, your handling of ambiguity, and of course your sure touch as a teller of tales.

    I wish you all success in the days and years to come.

    Give us more, please.
