BIO

Ryan Osborn was born in Peoria, Illinois. He is an avid player of tabletop role-playing games and backgammon. Ryan enjoyed storytelling in any form or genre, especially gay romantic suspense thrillers, comedies, and daytime soap operas. In addition, Ryan has enjoyed any genre of fiction, including plays, audio plays, poetry, music, short stories, novellas, and novels. As a gay teenager and young adult, he often read his grandmother’s and mother’s romance novels. He wanted to know why none supposedly geared towards gay men ever ended with the kind of happily ever after he imagined. So he decided that he would put his writing talent to good use and wrote three YA gay romances in high school and has been writing them ever since.

CAINE'S ALIBI

June 15th, 2021

Caine Devilin has worked hard to get off the streets and get off drugs.  When he meets Alex Randall at a friend's barbecue, sparks fly, and they have a passionate one-night stand. When their mutual friend is found murdered, Caine becomes the prime suspect. Alex could supply him with an Alibi, but he's reluctant; to do so would reveal his terrifying secret. As their feelings for each other grow, they get closer and closer to a cold-blooded killer.

Praise for Caine's Alibi:

"A fantastic edge of your seat thriller. The romance is as hot and conflicted as the mystery that surrounds the characters." D. Camily.

"A great blend of story, MM romance with just enough of an erotic tone to please." Bruce T. Lang

MASTERS OF THE ZODIAC #7: ARIES

March 20, 2023

There are plenty of perks that come with being the Master of any Zodiac guild.
A magical sword that grants the holder control over fire wasn’t a perk Hawk was expecting, however. Nor was he expecting to be thrust into a situation where he’d be forced to defend his closest friend from a criminal organization hellbent on his destruction.
The more time they spend on the run, the harder it is for Hawk to fight the attraction he’s hidden for years. But once he gets Prophet on his knees for the first time, he knows he’ll stop at nothing to protect him.
Even if it means putting his own life on the line and going up against a ruthless assassin determined to rip the only man he’s ever loved from his arms.

(5 stars)  a beautiful testimony to love, yes, indeed.


I was held fast by the romantic tension within the first few paragraphs.

Without any spoilers, I want to say this is a highly emotional situation, a love triangle that seemed to exclude the usual ugliness.

The story evoked the tenderness of The Bridges of Madison County. This was a short story and I'm reaching out to the Author to give us the full story on these three men. It would be a heart-rending story there, I am sure.

In this run-down haunted mansion, an unsolved murder occurred 15 years prior. Jamie dreams of fixing up the decrepit mansion and returning to his life in the city. However, a stipulation in his aunt's will requires him to live on the estate, located just outside the small secluded town of West Forks, for two years. To make matters worse, the estate's devastatingly handsome and broody caretaker, Hunter O'Rourke, doesn't seem to want him around, despite their immediate and mutual attraction to one another. As soon as Jamie takes possession of Summerview, a mysterious intruder starts stalking the nighttime halls of the great house, and near-fatal accidents begin to occur. Jamie realizes he must untangle the mansion's dark history before he loses more than just his heart. But will he discover that Hunter is the hero of his dreams? Or a cold-blooded killer?

But their already shaky bond takes a hit when the club’s computer systems come under attack, and Sean is torn between protecting his business or being the Daddy his babygirl so desperately needs.
