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.
Mesa police officer Zach is a fun-loving guy. Now that he’s hit the big three-oh, he’s looking to stop the hook-up train and find someone he can get serious about. When a mutual friend suggests Fire Marshal Daryl, Zach assumes he must be joking. The surly marshal has given cranky a new meaning. It’s unfortunate, though, since he is one fine-looking man.
Daryl has sworn off relationships ever since he caught his ex-partner cheating. He’s always taken everything in life seriously—from jobs to relationships—and is afraid he might be alone in that regard. Certain he can’t risk love again, he panics when he sees his secret crush Zach approaching him at a police versus firemen softball game. He’s nervous, as he is socially challenged with a tendency to blurt out the wrong things. It gets worse when he realises their shared buddy gave Zach a push. He assumes that Zach is only talking to him out of pity.
Zach has been pissed off at Daryl ever since they got into a verbal sparring match at the park. Yet, when Daryl comes to his aid during an explosive fire, Zach wonders what secrets might be hidden beneath the layers Daryl has built to protect himself from the world—and love. A night of passion turns into the possibility of something more as they struggle to find their way to one another. But all of that is threatened when there is a devastating fire that causes many people to lose their lives. As they work together to uncover the truth, someone thinks they’ve asked too many questions—and plans to stop them before they can ask any more.

Gripping the base of Zach’s cock, he leaned over and took him all the way in. He hadn’t been kidding about the whole swallowing thing—it was even more amazing than the first time. Zach arched his body, his heels digging into the sheets covering the mattress. He was getting pretty close to hating that his arms were restrained and that he couldn’t clutch at Daryl’s hair or knead his fuckingly awesome body.
He squirmed and groaned, finally wrapping his legs completely around Daryl’s neck as Daryl buried his face over and over in his crotch, deep-throating him. Zach’s ankles were crossed and his heels rested across the top of Daryl’s back. He was right about there and he didn’t want to hurt Daryl by digging the sharp bones of his feet into his flesh when he came, so he unhooked them. As he did that, Daryl grabbed his legs, pulling them wide, and lifted off of Zach’s dick.
It bounced against his belly and Zach almost shot his load. He wished he had. Instead, he was left with a throbbing cock that would probably never speak to him again. He was so out of breath that he was at the point of seeing galaxies as opposed to a few puny stars. All he could do was stare wordlessly at Daryl who calmly sat on the edge of the bed, gazing at him. He absent-mindedly rubbed one of Zach’s legs in an almost soothing gesture, using his fingers to play in the hair.
Once his breathing slowed, Zach found his voice. “Are you trying to kill me?”
Chuckling, Daryl lowered his hand to tickle the bottom of Zach’s foot. He howled, laughing and jerking it away.
“Bastard! Stop it.”
Daryl stood and Zach had a moment of panic where he thought Daryl might leave him to suffer on the bed, all tied up. Instead, he bent to retrieve the lube bottle and one of the condoms.
“Oh, thank Christ. So you do plan on fucking me after all. Will there be orgasms involved? One of them hopefully being mine?”
Daryl snickered. “So impatient.”

About the Author: 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 the Gin & Jazz series about the glitz and glamour of 1920’s Hollywood and additional installments of the Uniform Encounters series, with a new series about those luscious men in uniform coming out later this year.
