A Nick Williams Mystery by Frank W. Butterfield
From Book 1:
May 11, 1953
The richest homosexual in San Francisco is a private investigator.
Nick Williams lives in a modest bungalow with his fireman husband, a sweet fellow from Georgia by the name of Carter Jones.
Nick’s gem of a secretary, Marnie Wilson, is worried that Nick isn’t working enough. She knits a lot.
Jeffrey Klein, Esquire, is Nick’s friend and lawyer. He represents the guys and gals who get caught in police raids in the Tenderloin.
Lt. Mike Robertson is Nick’s first love and best friend. He’s a good guy who’s one hell of a cop.
It’s late at night when Nick’s evil father, Dr. Parnell Williams, calls to inform his son that Janet, Nick’s sister, has been in a freak automobile accident and is fighting for her life in the hospital. With Carter, his loving husband, in tow, Nick arrives just in time to say goodbye.
The next morning, Nick discovers that Janet’s death wasn’t an accident. It was premeditated murdered. Nick goes poking around and uncovers a family secret. Can he find the killer and prevent the next obvious murder from happening?
The Unexpected Heiress is where the adventures of Nick, Carter, Marnie, Mike, and all the gang truly begin. Read along and fall in love with the City where cable cars climb halfway to the stars.
Long before the Summer of Love, pride parades down Market Street, and the fight for marriage equality, San Francisco was all about the Red Scare, F.B.I. investigations, yellow journalism run amok, and the ladies who play mahjong over tea.
Valentine’s Love by Helena Stone
Ty O’Malley loves Spoilt for Choice, his gift shop. He enjoys nothing more than helping his customers find the perfect present. The only exception is Valentine’s Day.

This year will be no different — until his assistant interferes.
When Ben Cronin walks into his premises, looking for presents for a man he doesn’t know but has been admiring from afar, Ty can’t deny Ben is everything he would look for in a man — if he happened to be looking, which he isn’t. Besides, Ben has obviously set his sights on someone else.
As Ty instructs Ben in the art of finding the perfect gift, the two men grow closer. But there are only four weeks until Valentine’s Day. After February fourteenth, Ty will probably never see Ben again … Or will he?Amazon
