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.

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.

Dangerous Wish Fact: Fact #10 - When EMT Jared Li falls in love with Dan, he becomes devoted to him more than he’d ever thought would be possible.

All the way back to his apartment Jared fought off a rising panic attack. Not that he ever had genuine panic attacks, but he was on the verge of a possible first. He couldn’t let Dan into the apartment, he couldn’t. He’d never wanted a guy so bad in his entire life. That Jared felt compelled to handle Dan like fragile china was infuriating at best.
That was it. He was done agonizing. He was going to quit acting like a teenage girl by dwelling on the situation with Dan ad nauseum. They were friends. Friends. Not friends with benefits, not fuck buddies, not a booty call, not a hook-up. Focusing on Joseph definitely helped to take the edge off his boner. Joseph was cute enough, but he was too much like a brother. Eww.
He knew exactly what to do.
“Okay, this is my stop. Driver, give me a sec, then you can take my friend to his place.” Jared turned his attention to an obviously crestfallen Dan, kissing him on the cheek. “I had so much fun tonight, sweetie. Thank you so much for going out with me and protecting me from that leather-clad ape. Call me.”
“Um, yeah, sure. I had a great time too.” Dan cleared his throat. “Are you gonna be okay going up to your apartment alone? I can wait and make sure you get in all right.”
“I’m fine, honey. We’re right in front of the security gate.”
“I’ll watch until you get inside the gate then.”
“Oh Danny…”
He couldn’t let himself come all unglued, even if Dan did make him feel like a princess from a fairy tale.
“Thank you.”
He gave Dan another quick kiss on his cheek then leaped from the taxi. The thought of not hanging out at all with Dan didn’t work for him, so he would have to find a way to make it work when they did get together. As he reached the iron gate, he turned to wave at Dan one more time before he unlocked the door and entered the courtyard. He noted that the cab didn’t pull away until he was safely on the other side.
Unzipping his boots, he then kicked them off to carry them up the stairs to his place. His feet were screaming for mercy, and quite honestly, so was his dick. His heart was in the mix somewhere as well, but he was too tired to contemplate that for the time being. Maybe they could do things like go to the movies or grab a bite to eat. Things that didn’t involve getting liquored up and grinding against each other.
That was most likely the problem. They needed to unsex the social interactions they had together. Joseph’s idea of having Jared show Dan around the scene had been a decent plan. But it hadn’t taken into account how turned on he and Dan were by each other. Really, really turned on.
After making his way into his apartment, he dropped his boots and went straight to the kitchen to get another full glass of water. He’d likely be up peeing half the night, but it was better than waking up groggy with a vicious headache. Standing in his kitchen with only the nightlight and the glow of the crystal and the fish tank, a sensation of loneliness filled him. And he was never lonely. Even when he was horny, it was never about being lonely. It was always about being horny.
Danny. What are you doing to me?
