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 core. 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 to just 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 may be the final thing that separates them forever.

Dangerous Wish by Morticia Knight was a beautiful blend of sexy men with a heap of tenderness. Part of the Uniform Encounters series, Dangerous Wish can be read as a stand-alone.
Dan was a member of the National Guard. Young, newly out and inexperienced, he is befriended by Jared, a member of a tight group of friends-one of which is in the Guard with Dan. Jared, an EMT, thoroughly comfortable in his skin is out & proud. What starts out as lust, soon turns into a guarded friendship, eventually evolving into wonderful love.
Dan and Jared fast became two of my favorite characters created in the mind of Ms. Knight. Loving and tender, the compassion each man had for the other held no bounds, and radiated through every action taken. A simple look became the stars aligning and a tender touch became a volcanic emotional eruption.
The innuendos and nuances delivered a loving story of two men whose paths converge on the road to true happiness. Morticia Knight never fails to entertain and convey a well-developed story line.
