Love is a dangerous emotion that EMT Jared won’t risk. But it looks as though a sweet and sexy National Guardsman is about to make him wish for that—and much more.
EMT Jared Li loves his job, his friends and clubbing. There’s nothing like a night of fun getting glammed up, throwing on some heels and shaking his ass to the latest Britney tune. Life is all about having a good time with as many hot guys as possible.
Dan Harrison has been in the National Guard for about six months and out for not much longer than that. At twenty-two, he’s somewhat innocent, a little shy and not interested in meaningless hook-ups. One night at a karaoke bar changes everything for him when his fellow Guardsman Joseph introduces him to his friend Jared. Dan’s never met anyone like the luscious twink who’s filled with so much life and laughter.
A night of passion shakes them to their very cores. Jared really likes Dan, but doesn’t want to get caught up in any type of exclusive thing. Dan wishes there could be more between them, but is willing just to be friends in order to remain near the androgynous stunner.
Hanging out strictly as friends proves to be almost impossible for them both. Not only does Jared continuously lust after the muscular soldier, but he’s also falling for the caring and compassionate man. Dan’s every sex fantasy stars Jared in one of his daring club outfits, but his heart is what really matters and it’s already been lost to Jared.
A traumatic event breaks down the barriers between them and gives them the chance to be together the way they both want. But after Dan is called up by the Guard to assist at a natural disaster, the same bravery that Jared admires in Dan might be the final thing that separates them forever.
Although part of a series, all installments can be read as standalones. For more information, visit Morticia Knight’s author page at Totally Bound: https://www.totallybound.com/author/morticia-knight#books

Lust Emergency (Uniform Encounters 3)

Guarded Desires (Uniform Encounters 4)
A sexy young National Guardsman, a snarky bear of a DEA Agent and a vicious Mexican drug cartel. Someone’s going to be sorry.
Secret Fire (Uniform Encounters 5)
Police officer Zach and Fire Marshal Daryl would be perfect together—if they would ever quit fighting long enough to find out. A devastating fire and the secret behind it almost keeps them from getting what they really need—each other.
At last, the man shook the grip of one of his friends off him and made a kissing gesture toward Jared before walking away. Balling his fists, Dan rushed forward, but Jared clung doggedly to him.
“Hey, sweetie, it’s okay. Let Rambo go creep up on another poor unsuspecting twink.”
Dan regarded Jared, using one hand to caress Jared’s face before he could stop himself.
“You’re all right?”
Jared smiled at him then touched their foreheads together.
“Yeah, thanks to you.”
Dan wasn’t sure what to say. He wanted to tell Jared that he should be careful, that he shouldn’t come to the club without his friends, without Dan. But Jared was a grown man and Dan had no say in anything he did or didn’t do.
Jared broke their connection, raising his eyes to him. “Hey, Danny, will you come inside and at least dance the next slow song with me before we leave?”
Even if they had to spend the night at the club waiting for one to play, Dan wanted that more than anything.
“Sure. Let’s get you out of the cold, you’re shivering.”
Jared placed a quick kiss on his cheek. “Thanks for being here with me tonight.”
Dan wanted to grab Jared, hold him close and tell him he’d be with him anywhere, anytime.
“Thanks for inviting me, it’s been fun.”
Jared took hold of his hand, the feeling strangely reminiscent of their previous evening together. It seemed as right as it had at the karaoke bar. But it wasn’t the same, now that Dan knew what not to expect.
They had barely stepped back into the main area of the club when George Michael’s Teacher began to play. Jared clutched his hand tighter.
“You see, Danny? It’s perfect.”
He wasn’t sure how to interpret Jared’s meaning, but he knew how to interpret his own. It could all be so perfect if Jared would give him a chance, if only Jared wanted more. Jared led him to the dance floor and even though he wasn’t all that graceful, he could at least wrap his arms around Jared’s waist and sway to the music with him. Jared embraced him in return, his head resting against Dan’s.
The peaceful sounds of the tune, along with the plaintive lyrics, washed over him, making him a little emotional. There was too much feeling inside of his heart, too much want. It was the same anguish as the lyrics in the song—it was what he knew to be the truth. He didn’t want to learn to love Jared only to have to say goodbye. It was for the best that they only remained friends.
Author Bio: M/M Erotic Romance author Morticia Knight enjoys a good saucy tale – after all, who doesn’t? Since she loves several genres, you may find your heroes in a contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi setting. One of her passions is bringing people's fantasies to life on the page, because life is too short for even one boring moment. Her stories are volcanic in heat, deep in emotion, and sprinkled with doses of humor.
When not indulging in her obsession for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. The Pacific Northwest is the ideal spot to enjoy both hiking and beachcombing. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She now resides on the northern coast of Oregon, where the constant rain and fog remind her of visits to family in England and Scotland when she was a child.
She is currently working on a new series about men in uniform entitled Sin City Uniforms and a BDSM spin-off to the Gin & Jazz series entitled The Hampton Road Club.
Dangerous Wish Fact: Fact #9 - EMT Jared Li knows that Dan is the only man he’s ever really been in love with, and it scares him half to death.
