Officer Shawn Everly patrols the Strip and one night, fireman Trent Marshall saves him when danger strikes. But it’s still uncertain whether Trent can save himself from getting his heart broken by Shawn.
The party never ends on the Las Vegas strip but neither does the danger. Officer Everly is new to the beat, having recently relocated to Vegas from Los Angeles. Foot patrol on the Strip is a demanding assignment because he’s up close and personal with the public. But what he’d really like to do is get up close and personal with Station 32’s hunky fireman, Trent Marshall.
Trent has been a fireman for over ten years and is dedicated to his job. He’s built tough and is a no-nonsense man of few words. At a local blood drive, Trent meets the handsome new officer on foot patrol but won’t let himself get too close. He’s lost love before when his policeman lover was killed in the line of fire.
During an emergency, Trent’s over-protective instincts kick in when he believes Shawn is in harm’s way. He ends up embarrassing and angering Shawn in front of their fellow officers, which seems as though it will end any hope of Trent having a chance with the young man he can’t push from his mind. Shawn can’t decide whether he wants to punch or kiss Trent. Kissing wins. Once they spend some time together away from the stresses of their jobs, they find that they’re not just compatible—they’re combustible.
But Trent can’t seem to accept that there are hazards that come with working in law enforcement. Right as they’re discovering how much they mean to one another, the danger escalates on the Strip. The underground vigilante group, The Citizens Against Immorality, have raised the stakes. Will Shawn and Trent be their next targets?
He took a deep breath. That was it then. He’d wanted to get with Trent from the moment he saw him. It was that simple. It had never been about wanting someone to take care of him. If Trent answered a need in him that was in addition to all the other things he liked about the guy, then so be it.
Like a lot.
Of course, he still didn’t want Trent freaking out every time he got a paper cut. He snickered to himself. It was kind of cute how Trent melted around him, turned into a fuzzy teddy bear worrying over him. A warm squishy feeling gathered low in his belly. He was guilty of some melting too.
The buzzer sounded and he lifted the blanket then removed the ice pack he’d had on his knee. He laid it on the glass coffee table. Grimacing as he pushed himself up from the couch, he limped over to the intercom, making sure he spoke into it before letting Trent in.
“Yeah. Thanks for that.”
He chuckled. It was a start to a comfortable compromise. He unlocked the door then hobbled back to the couch. He’d no doubt never hear the end of it if he was standing when Trent came in.
Shit. The crutches.
He jumped up too fast and gritted his teeth in pain. His whole ‘sitting down like a good boy’ plan would be shot to hell if he didn’t have the crutches next to him instead of propped by the front door. Grabbing them, he made it back to the couch—only mildly out of breath—before he heard Trent’s knock.
Trent entered the room, the look of disapproval on his face mild in comparison to the usual one.
“I asked before I buzzed, remember?”
Trent had the decency to look contrite.
Shawn waited for what he was sure would be an extended interrogation, but instead Trent immediately came to him on the couch. He wrapped him in a heartfelt hug then sought out his lips. Shawn gladly opened up to him, instantly taken back to that place where he never wanted to be anywhere else but in Trent’s arms. His kisses were astounding in their sweetness. It had actually surprised him that such a masculine, hunky guy like Trent was so into kissing. Somehow it seemed out of character. But after experiencing their intensity, he wouldn’t want it any other way.
Author Bio: M/M and M/M/F 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 the Sin City Uniforms Series and a BDSM spin-off to the Gin & Jazz series entitled The Hampton Road Club. A follow-up to Bryan and Aubrey’s story in Rockin’ the Alternative will be available in 2015.
