NYC cop Tiernan Callahan realized that self-denial becomes a thing of the past when confronted with unadulterated desire. The object of Tiernan’s desire is wounded warrior Dario Ramos, who is a friend of the Callahan’s unjustified enemy Casper Kennedy.

A Healing Man is the fifth book in the Men Of Manhattan series. The characters were first introduced in A Fighting Man featuring Casper Kennedy and Army Ranger Slater Cassidy. Casper was engaged to Tiernan’s brother Mason who was killed in Iraq. Slater and Dario were survivors of that same war.

Tiernan’s attitude regarding gay men stems from his uncompromising religious mother. Tiernan’s fears of rejection from his family overrule his true personality. The bigoted attitude is also causing problems with his performance on the job. Learning to face his demons brings about a positive change in Tiernan, but not without some apprehension for his future.

Dario is a man of compassion, dealing with his own demons as well as with physical pain on a daily basis, he recognizes the sufferings of others and tries to help anyway he can, regardless of a person’s sexually. 

Reading Sandrine Gasq-Dion’s A Healing Man I found exceptionally enjoyable illustrations of crimes in progress action, Tiernan and Dario’s incredibly sensual budding romance, vastly appealing secondary characters, especially Danny Finnegan, Tiernan’s work partner plus Dario’s mother. The two of them provided most of the storyline’s hilarity.
