Book Cover: Love in Lockdown

Conner MacKay is the last of the TV cowboys, but he’s withdrawn from society—even before a global pandemic forces the world into quarantine. When he meets activist Dante Burke, though, Conner takes a chance. He can’t leave a young Black man on the street in the face of a public health crisis. What kind of cowboy would he be then?

On the surface, Conner and Dante live in opposing realities: midlife versus youth, flush versus flat broke. But their politics, attraction, and close quarters bring them together until the heat between them grows into a burn almost too hot to handle.

Then old dangers breach their safeguards and threaten not their love, but their very lives.

Love in Lockdown is a gay interracial age-gap romance with a happy ever after that goes on for decades. Love in Lockdown


About the Author

I may be THE dirty old man. Check this out:

After forty-five years of writing for himself while editing others, R Frank Davis entered the gay erotica genre, bringing a few memories and an extremely active imagination. Ask his husband (who first-reads his work); he’ll say “A ton of imagination.”

R Frank is a Black author with a romantic streak and a believer in truth, reality, and the facts of American life. A newspaper reporter, big-city-daily editor, and managing editor of a prize-winning magazine before retirement, he mixes real news into the fictional lives of his characters. To be a good reporter, one has to have knowledge in many areas. Having been a smarty-pants student, college grad with honors, and achiever of a master’s degree in business, he loves to tie what he’s learned to what he hopes readers will want in fun and intelligent ways.

While his paychecks came from relating daily events, his inspiration comes from all forms of fiction: poetry to sci fi, current literary works to American classics. He loves all music—double down on jazz and show tunes—and all movies, including cult films (Choose Me, Evil Dead, or King of Hearts, anyone?)

A life-long Midwesterner (not counting two years in the Carolinas), a proud Chicagoan, and a father of three fully functioning adults, he’s very happily married to his husband of eight years. (We were among the first gay couples to get a wedding license in Illinois, a year before Obergefell made it legal for all Americans.)

Gay romance has reached an inflection point as legal marriage, social tolerance, sexual freedom, and commercial exploitation mutate the stories of man finds man. R Frank Davis is excited by the challenge to tell the tales of these changes and entertain readers along the way.
