The Ryan Kinkaid Mystery Series

Ryan Kinkaid, a successful gay Manhattan antique dealer has had it with life in New York City, especially his random love life. Ryan has what most New Yorkers want—his own successful business, and a mortgage-free brownstone on West 71st Street. However, at age forty-one, he discovers he is lacking one very important thing in his life . . . a meaningful and loving relationship. With summer just around the corner, the approaching heat and his restlessness convince him to escape from the city. A four-month rental in historic and picturesque Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with his best friend Lauren was the answer.

Once settled in a house built in 1810, Ryan encounters a kindred spirit in Nicholas, who reaches out for contact, and inspires Ryan to learn about the past. Nicholas is not the only one who seeks Ryan’s attention. Ty, a handsome local man, also harbors a strong desire for Ryan.

The past collides with the present in this tale of lost and betrayed love and irrational and undying prejudice.

In the end, all that’s left is the affirmation of the values of honesty and commitment in love.
