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?

Excerpt:

They arrived at the diner on the other side of the interstate and although a little run down, when they stepped inside Shawn was assailed with the aroma of homemade food. He could see why Trent would want to make it a regular destination. They sat in a booth across from one another in the very back, the place thankfully almost empty. Shawn was thrown when the waitress only handed a menu to him. He lifted his eyebrows at Trent.

“I already know what’s on that.”

“Any recommendations?”

“I’d have to know what you like.”

“You could always ask.”

Trent considered him, his eyes narrowing a little.

“Okay. I’m asking.”

“As much as I love comfort food once in a while, I tend to eat fairly healthy.”

“I like all the salads, but they make a damn good Cobb. I also like the turkey and avocado sandwich.”

Shawn glanced over the well-worn menu, the plastic laminate peeling away on parts of the edges. “Hmm. Actually, the turkey avocado sounds excellent. I think I’ll go for that.”

The server returned. Trent gently took the menu from Shawn and handed it to her.

“Two turkey avocado sandwiches, Lora.” He looked at Shawn. “Drink?”

“Iced tea, no lemon.”

He turned back to Lora. “I’ll have the same with iced tea too, but bring lemon with mine.”

“Sure thing, Trent.”

After she walked away, they were back to staring at one another. This time when heat rose to his face, it had nothing to do with the temperature.

“You still haven’t told me why you threw me over your shoulder like a caveman last night.”

He wants forthright. I’ll give him forthright.

Trent made a small grunt. “That wasn’t my intent.”

“Fine. What was your intent then?”

Trent cast his eyes down and fiddled with the spoon lying on his paper napkin. Lora came by with their drinks. Trent thanked her and waited until she’d walked away again before speaking.

“How’s your lip?”

What? Are you nuts? Why can’t you answer a simple question?”

Shawn’s frustration grew. Trent could blurt most things out without hesitation, yet this one topic he kept dancing around.

What the hell?

Squirming in the booth, Trent clasped his hands in front of him. Shawn noted how white his knuckles became from the obvious tension-filled grip Trent had on them.

Just the facts Scavenger Hunt Clue #3:  Alpha male Trent knows his way around a kitchen. Homemade chicken potpies are one of his specialties.

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.
